Being part of the GBnU tournament, it had a history theme, which ensured that there were lots of knights and foot heavy armies. However not all were in theme as there were elves, and a Cthulhu force, and some of the historical armies were quite fantasy heavy....
I used a scoring system detailed here for the tournament. The final results were;
- Geoffrey Stewart: 7 chits, influence 1 (10) (Generic Medieval army)
- Alan Saunders: 5 chits, influence 3 (7) (Cthulhlu army)
- Martin Stewart: 5 chits, influence 4 (6) (Egyptian army)
- Peter Paddon: 4 chits, influence 2 (6) (Greek army)
- Victor Jarmusz: 4 chits, influence 5 (6) (Carthaginian army)
- Robert Grierson: 3 chits, influence 8 (4) (Elvish army)
- Caesar Anderson: 2 chits, influence 6 (3) (Medieval army with lots and lots of beasts)
- John Thompson: 2 chits, influence 7 (3) (Celtic army with lots of trees)
There was a bit of extra free excitement at MOAB this year, where, in the distance, some competitor from a game (Warhammer 40K I think) seemed to quite loudly and animatedly object to something. This drew some humorous and raucous cheers from people around the main hall.
Anyway, onto some real action;
This photo is my Carthaginians against Geoff's medievals. My only claim to fame is that Hannibal (behemoth general with the red howdah), destroyed the blade to the front, and destroyed the knight general behind. However, the Carthaginians ended up losing everywhere else...
The next photo is Caesar's medieval band with lots of beasts (large dogs) vs the Celts (I think a lot of the Celts were loaners from Peter and Alan) with lots of trees. Quite strangely, the dogs were quite attracted to the trees.
This was a climactic round 3 battle between Alan's Cthulhu and Geoff's medievals. At this point, both were undefeated and ultimately, Geoff won the battle and eventually the tournament.
Finally, a photo taken during round three of some of the games in action. A fun day was had by all!
