Days gaming

Posted: August 2, 2009 in Epic Armageddon, Epic UK, Maelstrom Games

Once again a few of the epic regulars had arranged a casual days gaming at WHW.

Now this happened to coincide with the opening of Maelstom Games new game shop and it seemed a shame to miss out on their opening offer as I was in the area!
I have to say I was impressed with both the shop and what should turn out to be a really good gaming venue for large tournaments. The staff were all very friendly and the gent giving the tour of the gaming space (still at the bare walls and floor stage) was very positive.
If all their plans come together the UK will have a truely premier gaming venue that will cater for systems other than GW’s, which can only be a good thing for the wider gaming hobby.

So with my wallet a little lighter I arrived at WHW to get down to the real business of epic gaming πŸ™‚

Game one say me take Steel Legion against Steve54 using the Epic-UK Black Templar list. The game was a close affair with neither side able to push for win. The game ended in a draw with Steve taking it on points. Now I have to say that for a marine force steve managed to fail a lot of initiative and rally rolls throughout the game.

Game two say me take eldar up against dptdexys’s codex marines. I’ll be doing a full write up for Tac Comms on this one so I’ll only say I lost this one 3-0.

Fun day but I have to say the bar food in WHW is really poor! My burger was truely terrible, nothing like what you get when eating in the restaurant during a tournament. Next time I’ll follow Tiny Tims example and pack a lunch πŸ™‚
