Returned From a Weekend at Warhammer World

September 11, 2012 by dracs

Hey guys as you might have guessed Darrell and I are back from the 40k Doubles Weekend and I have finally got 5 mins to let you know how it went.

Darrell and Sam at Bugman's Bar

Both Darrell’s team and my team did rather well at the tournament, with Darrell his team mate David winning 4 out of 5 matches and myself and my team mate Khrystan winning 3 out of 5.

I personally had a great time gaming at Warhammer World. Unfortunately we weren’t gaming on any of the cool, dramatic gaming tables they sometimes have set up, but this was offset by having Bugman’s Bar so close and getting to return to the miniatures hall, which is still not a good place to be Attention Deficit.

Space Wolves and Salamanders vs Orks and Dark Eldar

Darrell and David

The one complaint I would have is that the we had been specifically told that we weren’t allowed to use anything none-GW and that everything had to be what-you-see-is-what-you-get. This had led to much panic on our part as we attempted to make sure that all of our minis were up to standard. When we get there it turns out there were quite a few of (admittedly awesome) converted armies which were allowed anyway.

All in all we had a good weekend’s gaming and I for one definitely wouldn’t mind heading over again, though next time I will try and get the Death Watch army I am currently working on ready for it.

Sam vs Rhino

Here are the lists which the three teams of us who went from Northern Ireland brought with us, feel free to tell us what you think. Unfortunately I was unable to get David’s Blood Angel list so maybe you should try and come up with what you might use in conjunction with Darrell’s Wolves.
