Well done everyone! Particularly proud of all of you who used insane lists and did ok (apart from Palmer who got bummed :-D )
Euston is a creepy place at night. Love you all! x

I think this counts as a good day out for me! Possibly my jammiest day ever, basically got paid to eat burger king, then won a carry case (as the spoon) and got 4 free beers on the train!

Well done to Tom and Jack for there placings, Tom doing well with Bretts as predicted, few armies at this points level could cope with lots of Cav at that points level. And Jack doing well with his FireMage Dragon, probably a bit too good at this level and possibly the least silly list written.

As for Lee, staggering result mate, NOT ONE POINT  :))
Not sure how that was possible as his list was not exactly poop... :thumbsup:

As for my showing, 2 draws against WE and HE did not help, and my last game despite being a brutal affair ended with me only winning 11-9 against HE, which should have been a big win to  me but I made one error putting the Sphinx into the White lions one turn too early (they had flaming sword on them from an IF which killed his mage), If I had waited, it would have forced his hand and caused him problems.

My first game against Jim's LM gave me a big win, 17-3, which was basically the power of KB's from the Sphinx and the snakes.
Not sure how good TK are at this points level, would have liked to be more aggressive but could not do it with the list I had:

Quotelvl 2 Heiro
Lvl 2 light
10 Archers
19 Archers
3 Chariots
3 Chariots
4 Snakes
3 Carrion
3 Carrion
Casket
Necro Sphinx


What I should have done was take 2 lvl 2's both with the Nehek Lore and then got a much better chance of getting Smiting (which I never got once), which would have really helped me push the army more. As it was, I played safe (nothing I could do in my 2 game to prevent the draw) and was unbeaten, which I think only 3 people were on the day.

Great new venue, good comp from Mark (but some work of course needed with the Daemons as they were essentially running around with lvl 4 horror blocks), a well run day as per usual.
And a typically fun OG day out with British Bulldog, Flying Doctors, Stevo getting totally 'tired and emotional', train delays and drunken Euston ramblings all thrown in the mix.... :))

A good day out all in all.

4 games of fantasy in a day were certainly interesting...

list was written by ol and as follows...
General Spangleshard. gw, ha, dragonhelm and the spangleshard (gives you a ward save of what ever the to wound roll was...plus you have to shout out WOOF! very loudly if you make a successful save)
butcher with the bangstick and dragonbane gem
4x3bulls, ahw and musician.
4 leadbelchers, mus
5 leadbelchers, mus
10 gnoblar trappers
40 gnoblars in hoarde
maneater with gw.

Apologies for not knowing anyone's names.
game 1
vs skaven. the guy ended up second.
got 20-0ed. skaven ogres not an ideal match up, but msu ogres could have swung it rather nicely!
single maneater ran around the side of his army and took off 2 a unit of rats, was heading for his cannon then it blew itself up. leadbelchers failed to kill 10 gutter runners in a building...over 3 turns.
Lack of a bsb ment when his cannon hit 1 unit, the template hitting 3 ogres, killed them all and paniced the 2 flanking ogre units kind of put an end to my entire army... Doh!

game 2 vs warriors.
looked at the match up and it looked horrible.
big block of tzeench warriors (i later found out had a 4+ward from a banner) hoarde of 50 khorne marauders with flails, 2 blocks of marauders, 1 block of marauder horse..
ended up a 12-8 loss. played avoidancehammer for half the game, fleeing across the board to get some chaff and letting the gnoblar hoarde get hit. however they did kill a block of marauders in combat, then overran into a level 2 of tzeench, won combat by 5!(3 ranks, charged and a wound, compaired to no wounds) however he passed the break test, they did then kill the wizard though.

game 3 vs O&G.
I didn't win this, the other guy's dice lost it.
giant charges 10 trappers put there to annoy and divert him. rolls to see what he does...jump up and down, falls over. next turn stands up, rols to see what he does, jump up and down, falls over! eventually gets killed by a fanatic. ended up nice bloody game, however his big block of black orcs with the general in were still alive, so only a 12-8 win to me. msu units do tend to die when hit by big units , so my army hemorrhaged points.

game 4 vs brets.
horrible match up. no iron guts to break the armour, multiple small units that got overrun by big lances. highlight of the game was the bretonian general getting into combat with general spangleshard, doing 4 wounds, wounding on 3s, i believe he rolled a 5 2x6s and a 3 to wound, so i got a 6+ ward against 1...failed, and then a 4+ ward against the next...passed! Followed by a big shout of WOOF! across the hall, the OG boys looking on knowingly and my opponent asking "does that now mean something bad happens?" oh yes, it means my GW general will get to hit you! (however then his horse hits, wounds on a 6 and i fail the armour save so I dont infact get to hit.
20-0ed.

ah well, at least I won a game!

I would just like to add my thanks to Ol for his sponsorship & the regular attendance of the OG Massive, I know its an awkward journey for you guys so I appreciate the effort.

As said a bit of wok on the comp, but I did like the size & overall power of the armies at 1600 without the lords, looked a lot more hammer with less hero.

Improvements for next year, I think game 1 needs to be slightly longer as time is lost setting up & generally shaking of the cobwebs.

Also the Landlord told me that I can use the barbecue & we can cook food on it, so for about £1.50 a head we can get a barbie going at lunchtime, he even offered free camping in the field should anyone be mad enough to want to come up the night before.

See you soon

Thanks to everyone over the weekend... Had a great time! Bit tired, drunk and emotional towards the end but tends to be how I roll at tournaments these days!

My tournament points are really wrong though, been cheated out of a few I think! :(

Genuinely sad we won't see Lord Spangleshard in the new Ogre book!!! Woof!!!!!!!

Apart from the spearmen deathstar and the 2 chariots the list jack wrote me was truely awful! How I managed to escape with 2 wins and a 9-11 in the worst match up ever I'll never know... Maybe I'm ok at this afterall!!!
In the style of Tom Hale... F*ck Ushabti!!!

This sounds great. Food was a let down but unfortunately it's the locations fault rather than yourselves.
