Invasion September 2015 - Tournament Report

Saturday began with the six members of the Obital Bombardment crew meeting up in a cafe in Chessington, to enjoy a fry-up, and to discuss our hopes on the upcoming weekend. What was generally agreed upon, we were all stupidy excited! I recommend you go and visit the Obital Bombardment blog which will, in the fullness of time, have a more detailed account of the tourney, and those of us who occupied the higher tables. (Footnote - I may of got the mission order mixed up in the descriptions below).

Invasion - Drop Zone Commander Tournament Planning

At the last Invasion tournament I bought a 1500 point Scourge starter box. Although I have been using my beloved PHR since I was first introduced to the game, a recent spurt of painting enthusiasm, and being overcome with the novelty of the Scourge movement rates, I decided to try out the bad guys of the DZC universe. Perhaps only having one practice game, at the time of writing, is not ideal. Oh well, in for a penny, in for a pound!

Bushido - board completed and second game

It was some time ago that I was introduced to Bushido the game and I had decided to build my own two-by-two board. However, the decision to have a large water feature (in keeping with my faction's theme of trading) meant that its construction required more work than had planned. The problem was caused by the time taken for the water effects to dry. I used different makes of water effect resin and I layered it to thickly. Only myself to blame. However, the original plan of getting a muddy river bed did eventually work. A 4Ground rice hut, an oriental bridge from Sariassa Precision Limited, a river junk model from a pet shop (which was originally designed for the bottom of a fish tank), Plastcraft Games swamp walkway set, some model crates, and some ornamental pebbles, as additional scatter terrain, finished the board off nicely.
