Last Man Standing


So it has been now a couple of months since this event.  It was the first event that I have ever run and it went pretty well.  It was also the first event that Game On the local store here held for 40K.  I was hoping that we would have at least 6 players and we ended up have 7 plus me so 8.  A better turn out than I thought!

The basic theme of the game was Last Man Standing, so we played to the last model.

The Armies that were present:

Tau (x2)
Space Wolves
Space Marines
Grey Knights
Chaos Daemons
Dark Eldar
Table Before Terrain

Table After Terrain
As you can see from the second photo there are playing cards on the Table, that was to help with a random deployment, I think for the most part it worked. (Later I heard that two of the players switched there deployments zones)  Then we also used the cards to figure out turn order as well.

One of the biggest Epic Moment in mind was when four Tau Fir warriors took down a Dread Knight in assault.  The Dread Knight was down to one wound left. and locked in assault with 4 Fire Warriors that didn't break from the last round.  The Dread Knight could not hit the broad side of a barn in close combat that last round.  All 4 Fire Warriors were able to hit their mark and then were able to wound twice.  The Dread Knight was only able to save one of the two wounds.  (This is one of the many reasons why I really enjoy this game!)

4 Fire Warriors for the Win!

So we marked the Table with the event

All and all the event was good, Tau was the army to beat this time. It was the other Tau player that ended up winning.

Here was are around turn 3 or 4
