Worlds Gaming Day – Report

The day after, the sun is shining and the whole event seems to have been a blur of organised chaos.  I would first of all like to thank all the WM/H players that came along, 17 eventually made it; which is a great turn out for this event.  What was really good was the age ranges of players, from kids up to the more mature players.  There was a great sense of being there for the games, rather then the real reason of raising money.

Frank and myself, busy getting the players logged into the system; honestly the laptop is my wife’s.  Between the three games, there was 48 players taking part in Flames of War, Warmachine/Hordes and Warhammer 40K.

There was a range of tables for the Flames of War, with some thematic ones like the recreation of the Monte Cassino.

There was also a table for the Battle of Starlingrad

Dave Paterson, was kind enough to loan some of his terrain for the use in Warmachine/Hordes.  With some really stunning houses and medieval paraphernalia to accompany them.

But it wasn’t the scenery that was getting the attention, the models themselves were in some ways the highlight of the show.

With so much going on, there was always something to look at; so I’ll post up the rest of the pictures later.

Suffice to say, the day finally did end and our winners were found.  For the Warmachine/Hordes the standings at the end of a hard fought day; were as follows.

1. Alisdair Johnstone – Cryx
2. David Kane – Khador
3. Michael Dick – Legion of Everblight
4. Tom Young – Retribution of Scyrah
5. David Grant – Circle of Orobos
6. James Stevenson – Protectorate of Menoth
7. Luke Mason – Cryx
8. Kevin Curran – Khador
9. Steve McConnachie – Legion
10.David Flynn – Retribution of Scyrah
11. David Brown – Cryx
12. Est Mount – Cryx
13. Ryan Hunter – Cygnar
14. John Sinclair – Trollbloods
15. Jonathan Mitchell – Skorne
16. Allan Gibb – Cygnar
17. Irving Kerr-Smith – Mercenaries

Top three got prizes donated by Privateer Press, as well as an art print from Privateer Press and freelance fantasy artist – Florian Stitz.  He was kind enough to send over from Germany, a number of signed prints; to be used as prize support.

So it only remains to thank everyone again, for all their hard work, effort and time into coming to the event.  As a TO, it was rewarding to see some good games, plenty of banter and of course winners at the end.  Here’s to the next one!
