Colossals has arrived and with it, around the world there are open play events happening to celebrate this new expansion.
Yesterday my LGS (Worlds at War), held their event; starting from 9am and running through till about 6pm. With 12 players, it was a little chaotic in the small space; but it was so much fun. While I wasn’t officially running it, I did help to set it up for the PG applicant-in-waiting Tom. Due to numbers of players, we dropped the required points to 35; so games got done quicker. This was especially noted with the longer 4-way games, which took that little longer. It seemed the 4-way battles were well received, with most players getting one game out the way first.
I jumped into an All Battlegroup, 4-way match up; which was a lot of fun. Facing 2 Retribution and one Menoth, was going to present some challenges to my Tier 3 Morty list. I wasn’t out to win anything, so just charged in on the Sanctuary; Deathjack in the forefront of the battle. I nearly pulled off an assassination on Tom, sending my Ripjaw through the Sanctuary (Spectral Steel). Perhaps having not faced Mortemebra before, he forgot about the Ghostly ability. As it was, Severius was the one to kill Mortenebra in the end; having had all my bonejacks and DJ wiped out.
Heading home after that, I had lunch with the wife; before heading back with the intention of just watching. Sadly this didn’t come to pass as I played another couple of games, this time with a Tier 4 pDenny list.
- Warwitch Deneghra
- 2 x Ripjaw
- 2 x Stalkers
- Skarlock Thrall
- Warwitch Siren
- Scrap Thralls
First game against Mercs, did reasonably well; just left Denny over exposed after her feat turn. Counter feat from Gorten Grundback, pulled her within range of the Driller and Gorten…..game over.
Last game was against Dougie, with his Khador. Running the Tier 4 list again, this came down to our usual slugfest; with just the two Casters and 3 jacks left on the board. Denny well exposed, with the Harrower behind her and a Decimator and another jack in front.
Overall a great day and I’d love to run another open play format again in the future. For now, here are some pictures from the event yesterday.
