Well just over a week after the event, I'm finally getting down to some blogging. (This will be no surprise to my elite [read as very few] followers. I am nothing if not consistent in my inability to blog regularly.)
So first day of BOYL saw me at GW central playing Inquisimunda (an adaption of Necromunda with more exotic warbands). The setting was simply (!?!) nine players [Axiom, Captain Crooks, Whiskey Priest, Just John, Cheetor/Sho3box, Graham, Gadge, Asslessman, Paul and me] split into 2 factions. We played in some Tau ruins where the goal of the Faction that my Rogue trader supported wanted to gain information from the console at the top of the central tower, therefore our opponents' aim was to destroy it.
|Ptolome Jones and his crew|
|The field of battle and the tower atop which sat the target console.|
In addition to the main mission, we were given a personal objective; mine was to kill as many big guys and Xenos as possible during the battle, whilst ignoring the console. As luck would have it, I was set up opposite Cheetor, whose gang consisted of 4 Xenos beasties!
|A cautious start|
Ptolome's crew began creeping towards their target. They used the cover available, unsure as to the long range capabilities of the opposition.
|At the far end of the table shots are fired.|
At the other end of proceedings, Graham's Genestealer Cult betrayed us! Axiom's Inquisitor Dirske did not take kindly to being fired upon and retaliated.
At this point Ptolome's crew were in range of Cheetors aliens, so all thoughts of the other factions became irrelevant (You can find accounts of the rest of the battle on other players' blogs).
|The Ogryn and Ambull lead the charge.|
|After suffering the loss of a comrade the aliens flee.|
All of a sudden there was quite quiet across the battlefield. At the top of the tower, a single genestealer had somehow managed to press the correct buttons on the console to erase the data sort by Inquisitor Dirske.
The main mission completed, the game was over and cowardly Xenos ran from the board having failed to cause a single wound to my crew.
|The leaders of all nine warbands.|
Over the next week (or so), I will post more of the games that I played during the BOYL weekend as well as taking some proper pictures of my finished Ash Waste Nomads that I used as the bulk of Ptolome's crew.
Hope you enjoyed reading.
