Battle Brothers

Just back for my 'blind gaming' tournament and I was not kidnapped and sold into the white 'Dwarf' slave trade. Dan - my mystery Battle Brother was a true gent and we had an awesome three games against five other complete strangers but equally decent and fun guys to game with.

In fairness, there was only one other entry in the best Fortification category - an Aegis Defence Line so I ended up with the Monument of Legend Award.

Both Dan and I'd army also got nominated for best Army too!

But biggest surprise was that we came 2nd out of 68 pairs! We won all three games and the last one in particular was an emphatic win over Space Wolves but there was a pretty decent tit-for-tat slaughter that went on when we did an alpha strike of around 300+ points damage and gave us 3VPs which couldn't dampen the spirits of our opponents and nor should it when their rune priest managed to kill 445pts of Mosntrous Creatures with Jaws of the World Wolf and gain them 1VP in the process, only for the Doom to then Muller an entire squad. Awesome, awesome game and they'll all be reported on as soon as I can.

Oh, and here's a spoiler alert - the Facebook Gallery is here: but if you don't want to see the completed Bastion then you may want to avoid it, your choice.
