Dream Wizards/Beltway Gamers Summer Showdown - After Action

  The Summer Showdown is in the books and a great time was had by all.  I went 1-1-1 in the three round tournament.  The missions were creative and very challenging.  I can say that this was one of the best tournaments I have played in and can't wait for the next one.

Now on to the after action report:
Round 1 - Deathwing terminator SS/TH SPAM list w/ 2 vindicators - 5 Objectives - Table Corners

I hate Deathwing.  I mean with a passion.  This went to turn 6 and I was basically tabled.  One Razorback that was immobile and weaponless remained.  The guy was nice enough but the saves were just killing me. 

Points 0 - 30 (LOSS)

Round 2 - IG - Kill Points - Pitched Battle

This game was fun.  My opponent was a good guy and fun to play against.  This scenario had a weird catch. In each table quarter was a spot where there was a chance of an obital bombardment.  I wasn't hit buy it but my opponent took it a few times.  You also got points for having more points in your opponent's deployement zone than he has in yours. 

I had to foot slog a lot of my guys due to transports becoming gun platforms.  I managed to get all the way accross to his deployment zone.  The missles and Las shots were brutal to him.  CC was even worse.  The guy had a good attitude and was fun to play against.  Which is good since he is a DW regular.

A pic of his army is here:

He even had kick butt wreck markers

Points 30 - 0 (WIN)

Round 3 - Footdar - Roll Dice and Tie - DoW

This match was actually joked about.  It was against "The Mic".  He even said I want to play Sean.  He had a cool footdar list and was brutal with it.  I had some crappy leadership rolls and he managed to get his guys in place to run me off the board.  I lost a terminator and initia squad that way.  There were also a few issues with certain terrain being dangerous.  That helped me a few times. 

Mic is a great guy and the game was fun but unfortunately it was roll dice and tie.  We had both of our objective.  We took out 4 kill points of each other and we were only 70 some points spereating us.  Best game of the day.

Points 15 - 15 (TIE)

At the end of the day, I would love to play in another.  Great time!
