No Semis for Me

So got an email from the local game store. The list of Semi-final venues for the 'Ard Boyz tournament appears to be final according to his GW rep. Kind of silly if you ask me. They let a bunch of stores (at least 4 by my count) in central BC and Alberta host the prelims but the closest place to play for the 2nd round is in Olympia, WA which is like 13-15 hours from where I am (and twice that if you live in Alberta).

Maybe I can convince the store to host an unofficial 2nd round just so the winners in the area can play each other and can call themselves the 'Ard Boyz of Northern BC, lol.

Oh well, maybe next year. At least there's a big tournament (hobby-ish, not completely competitive so maybe I'll take a Dark Angel list instead of a Space Wolf list) coming up in Edmonton at the beginning of July that I will probably try to attend. I'll have to scale down my armies to 1850 and test at that level though.

'Ard Boyz Semi-Finals GRRRRRRR!

So it appears that BC 'Ard Boyz semi-finalists got screwed as far as venues that host the 2nd round of 'Ard Boyz are concerned.

I really hope that my store is able to hold the 2nd round.  I like the competition and to able to face other people with competitive lists is really fun.

'Ard Boyz Game 3 at Great White

Last game of the day and I got paired up with a space marine player.  He had an all foot army so had the advantage but he was rather new to the game.  It was kind of interesting that he was also a physics teacher and we ended up talking shop afterwards.  He gave me some great tips about trying to start a wargaming club at my school which I may try next year.

'Ard Boyz Game 2 at Great White

The second game I played against a regular tournament goer in the area.  Very competitive player and nice guy who runs a store in the next town over.  I ended up visiting his area to play in the 'Ard Boyz his store was hosting.

'Ard Boyz Game 1 at Great White

Ok so I entered two 'Ard Boyz tournaments, one on Saturday and one on Sunday.  This report is for the 1st game on Saturday at Great White Entertainment

3rd Place at 'Ard Boyz in PG!

I played at 'Ard Boyz as hosted by Great White Entertainment in Prince George and managed to get 3rd place.  The competition I have to say wasn't as cutthroat as it could have been but fun and competitive regardless.  Pictures and reports will follow shortly but my final list and the outcomes are below.

Final 'Ard Boyz Army List (hopefully)

Yet another change to my army list.  Probably the last one considering the tournament is this weekend.  The new scenarios prompted a little tweaking in my list.  Not a lot, but still some changes were necessary to get the most out of my list.

Dark Angels & the 'Ard Boyz scenarios

'Ard Boyz scenarios are out.  See here.
They look good and not too wacky in my opinion (except maybe the last one)

Ravenwing Biker gets some friends

Haven't had much time to test my list some more as I've been busy preparing a multi-day field trip for my physics classes. Once that's done I should have another report or two to throw up. In the meanwhile a funny thing happened to my Ravenwing sergeant.
