Salute 2015 Live Blog: Assault On Hoth Participation Game

Salute 2015 Live Blog: Assault On Hoth Participation Game

Supported by (Turn Off)

This year we have created a massive Star Wars gaming table we have titled Assault On Hoth. It's an open participation game recreating the Battle of Hoth at 28mm. We've got everything from the trench works being assaulted by AT-STs to a full on Echo Base which is jam packed with all kinds of cool secrets to find.

If you're at Salute 2015 stop by and see if you can take part in the action. Alternatively you can check this live blog to see the games unfold throughout the day.

A Rebel Officer Has Escaped!

As the game goes on it seems like a plucky Rebel Officer has escaped Echo Base. Did he manage to get out with sensitive information or was it just to save his own skin?

Love to be able to join you guys at salute guys, but unfortunately I can’t make it.

Your Hoth table is something else, epic is’nt even close guys. Would really love to see it for real & have a chance to participate in the game.

Hope that all goes well & have a great time.

Multiplayer participation games are always one of the “best-bits” of events like that. So jealous here!

Will there be some sort of video showing game play? Really looking forward to seeing people’s reactions and faces when playing this classic scene.

Maybe get some footage of people’s impressions of the experience and edit it together at the end of the show for an all encompassing opinion reel on your work. Love to see that!

Guys the Hoth Board looks truly awesome and with the added bonus of Vadar and the stormtroopers adds to the epicness of it all. Superb job all round. Great stuff!

What a great day! Spent my my limit of money on 5mins on batman stuff! Then bought 2 boards worth of terrain! Even got a go on the Hoth board for the imperials in echo base! Won a prize! Enjoyed it so much! Was great to meet everyone on the Friday night too!

Mighty Kyle had a great time playing Hoth not once but twice! The first time his two At-Ats were both Knobbled by Luke and his flukey dice 🙂 the second time he decided to switch sides only to see the Imperial forces blow up the base! Big thanks to the guys riunning the game, you must all be well and truly knackered – but much fun was had and we really appreciated the effort!

Guys that was an awesome table and an absolutely brilliant day! My 2 boys & I had a blast (literally) playing the Imperials. They got the hang of Grants rules easily, reported their victories to Lord Vader himself (over @ 11 speeders destroyed), and after a devastating advance down the left flank got to the second trench lines & finished the game (would you believe it) by both rolling 6s to blast the Rebel base apart! Couldn’t have asked for a better day out for us to remember & you guys deserve all the credit! Your efforts are very much appreciated & safe travels home 🙂

Glad they had a great time, when they and the other young man all rolled six’s it was an amazing way to finish the game.

Loved the borad got my objective done with 4 at-st kils and 4 at-at kills as a bonus great easy rules set for anyone to drop in and play

This setup makes me almost want to make a tabletop Star Wars game at the skirmish-to-company level! Rarely would you see a special character, and make it all about the line troopers.
