Area 51 RTT

    Well, the bad news is I didn't win. I felt good going into the tournament. Game one I played a real cool Space Marine player. He was a great sport and we had a great game. I got max points. Game two did not go so well for me. I was up against Big Red's Death Guard. He used a Lysander list and capitalized on two rounds of bad shooting by me and took full points. It was one of those "What the hell just happened?" games. It was a fun game nonetheless. Game three was the low point of the tournament for me. I was up against a leaf blower cut and paste list. My opponent and I started to disagree on firing angles on turn one and it really was just not a fun game. Add to that some really lousy dice rolls get the picture. It ended 2-0 in favor of my opponent. The last game was against Real Genuis and was a fun game. Once again my dice started real cold but got warmer as the game went on. I got the win and had a great opponent. So over all 3 great games out of 4, not bad. I'd have liked better results but it was fun.

  A problem I had with the scoring system; They had 4 victory conditions and used 3 per game, changing up the order. I found this to be less than ideal. It just seemed like I was playing the same mission every game. I hope the TOs go to a different system for the next tournament as it could have been more fun with different missions. Overall, they did a good job, terrain was great, the schedule worked pretty smooth, and prize support looked good.
  This weekend I am going to Killeen for an 1850pt tournament there. I'm bringing the Praetorians again with a few minor tweaks......Do you smell what Crazy Red Praetorian is cooking????!!!!

Go Roll Some Dice!!!|

Sounds fun man. I just realized that my bookmarked site for your blog was actually a single post, and all this time I had thought you didn't update your blog at all since then, since whenever I clicked on the link, it just went to that post. I feel dumb, lol.

Anyways, look forward to reading what you have to say henceforth, and hopefully I'll get to see you again next BoLS(wargames?)Con!
