So that was the weekend in which I survived the Wlydhammer WAAC event, first the guys did amazing with the help of the Battlehammer they managed to raise around£800 for WAAC with the raffle on the day and Masons Raffle, speaking of Masons you can see the draw here;
Head to about 27 minutes to see it happen live-ish…
So the day itself was great fun, although a 5am start and 1am finish meant the lads from Yorkshire Guild Ball had a 20hr day with 5 games of Guild Ball sandwich in. As you may know I took hunters with me on this one, it’s a team that I havent gelled well with and always struggle outside of their plan A.
Which meant I was going for fun and to see how they faired outside of playing Fillet all the time…It didnt go well I ended up getting the spoon. Something I never managed to do this is both an amazing thing and also rubbish. I love I finally have one but gutted that a mixture of tiredness and the hunters meant I wasnt in the top half of the table as I have been in other events.
I will say this that my dice hated me all weekend, I have never seen such dire rolls. Even in the spoon game in round 5 my dice had decided that I was not having any luck. 11 dice charge by Seenah into Fahad (yes I lost a hunter off) netted me one 5!!! Yes not even a 6!!!
I did enjoy all my games, even against Straw! and the whole was great fun, I am not going to do a run down as usual as I can’t remember any of the games beyond below average dice and by the time I write this my memory she is blank. However I did learn some things;
- Fillet is filth and also incredibly popular
- Mr Cannon only lives #20mins away from Ferrybridge services, ask him about his journey sometime.
- The A17 and A47 are the dullest roads in existence
- Spuddy has an unnatural obsession with MacDonalds
- You can’t buy fish and chips in Great Yarmouth, only chips and sauce!! It’s the seaside!
- Need more practice against Hammer and Scalpel, 2 captains we don’t see much of round our way.
- Hunters are not for me unfortunately, I don’t have a plan B with them.
- Its amazing what you can get people to do for charity 🙂
Games This Week
Some more malifaux this week in which JD took on Guild McMourning, I ended up with another draw but another round and I could have nicked it. Another great game and glad to have the gaming cleanse after a LOT of guild ball this year.
I also rocked a vassal game again using JD against Seamus and managed a win mainly down to opponent messing his schemes up. I did manage to run Wrath in this list and cheap hitty henchmen with oathkeeper is fun apparently 😉
Hobby This Week
More work on the Jack Daw stuff should keep me busy and out of trouble for a while.
