Last weekend and we were off down south to Timaru for TAGCon (Timaru Armchair Generals Convention) for 2011. I took a group of College boys, and 3 ex students, as well as son Nick, and good colleague Andrew. Andrew, Nick and I played in the DBA event (Book 1 armies) on the Saturday.
I was using a borrowed Early Archaemenid army (1/60C), and made my worst ever showing I have to admit. Here is Keith's report on his battles, and the final results. Just a few random shots of the day.
My light horse attacking Keith's camp in my first game.. didn't work.. damn it!!!
Brian's Lydian knight General, complete with dogs.. love them!!
This was Brian's camp element.
The DBA crew hard at work ...
The boys all played in the 40K competition. Again just a few random shots. This was Elliot's Guard Psycher unit..
... and his Vostroyans advancing... there sure were a lot of them, and nicely painted!!!
Alex bringing a touch of class to what otherwise might have been an unseemly brawl? No wait, that's the Armoured Corps' job!!
Hordes of Orcs.. my Orcs in fact, being used by Toby.. looking good!!
Some Vostroyan Rough Riders in the distance..
And someone else's Orcs.. highly mechanised... just doesn't seem Orcy really, "all dem weels"!!!!!
It was a great weekend. Thanks to the Timaru Armchair Generals for organising a great event, and my special thanks to Dave B for the loan army (even if the B**y thing wouldn't fight for me.. waddaya mean it was the bad general?).
I've been ill in bed for a week (first sick days off work in 25 years!!) so there's been no painting output, and obviously no games...
