To Save One From a Mistake is a Gift of Paradise.......

What a Huzzah it was!!!  Max and I had a great time at his first con.  We played in some great games and I ran Trilaterum twice.  Both went very well.  Thanks to my friend Scott for the Gift of an awesome gaming mat to run the demos in the future.  We also had some great brainstorming session on working on the rules and I see some great changes in the future to make the game even better!


Here is the table set up for the first night.   I added some Reaper Bones Cav models as walkers.  They are working really well and I am very pleased with their game play.  


Draconid ready to advance.  The game scenario had three lanes with separate detachments fighting over the center power nodes.  at the end of the game the players in possession of the most nodes would win.


Barad had the left lane.


Ready for battle.  


Draconids on the left flank


As the Draconids advance they take fire from the artillery .  The indirect fires rules are working well and have proved to be just powerful enough.


Humans starting to make their way to the objective.  I changed the terrain rules a little moving everything that is not hills to a template that as long as you are touching it you gain its benefit.  



As the Draconids make their way to the top of the plateau they put down hails of fire and assaults to drive the humans back.


The Draconids have the objective but can they hold onto it.


The human make a push to try to dislodge the hold the Draconids have on the power node.


In a last ditch effort, the human fail to secure the objective.  The Aliens have triumphed.  


This was the initial setup for Sundays game, Until my friend Scott generously purchased a mat for my games.  You rock man! 


The new mat in all its glory.....So awesome.  This game had the same scenario.  


The Barad push hard for the objective, putting down some withering fire.


The Draconids push forward as well. 


Gaining initiative the Draconids push hard for the objective.


A major firefight is in play with the Barad.  They have taken some damage but are maintaining their hold on the objective.


Some major fire comes down on the Draconids in the center lane.  All in all the aliens once again secure the power nodes and win the day.


Max and Me at dinner.  This was his first con and he played like a champ.


This was the Monster hunter game we played on Saturday put on by Chris Rhett.  It was a lot of fun great for kids.  The got to keep what they killed.  Very generous of Chris.

 

One dead whale shark!


That's a big pile of kills!!!!


Max playing in Mike Paine's Pulp Hanoi game.  He had a lot of fun with his hero,  Lash Lightning.  Thanks Mike for letting him play!!


More Max Fun


Lash Lightning to the rescue!!!!


Had a great time.  Thanks to all the organizers GM's and players at Huzzah that made it great.  The next outing will be OGC in July at the Nashua, NH Holiday Inn.
