Well well well ! It's this time of year again ! I just got back from BOYL and need to tell you all about it ! Of course, Bulldog Lopez has already covered the most important points but there are still a couple of lousy details that may be of interest to some !
As usual, this post will be packed with pictures so take a good seat and a fresh drink (damn heat...) and let's go on !
As usual, I took the ferry to cross the channel, I quite like going slow, as BOYL is usually an entirely other space-time for me. It does usually mean very early wake ups...
What a Tanker !
With many people arond the table, we decided to make two teams and I proposed to split vehicles by colour since half of them were red... I was on the good side obviously.
My Metal Slug (counting as a Pz38) quickly secured a safe position to target victims from, starting with Grover's colossal pizza tank.
Dracula's America in Space !
The aim of the game was to capture and secure 3 objectives and to score personal goals (mine was to get fresh corpses to revive later). Everyone quickly moved to their positions.
We all went straight to the objective and I placed my sniper in a position where hewould hopefully be able to take down threats. So did Graham's assassin.
And opportunities arose quickly.
Venari Vidi Venator !
Kissy Snake didn't stop saying offensive things I won't repeat here...
We often had to fight for the same target which added a bit of fun !
I think I didn't do bad in the end !
It really was a fun game, relaxed and laid back but with just the right tension to be thrilling !
Raiders of the last Orc ! Mordheim
For the occasion, my undead was teaming with Garth's and Curis's Possessed !
The empire and dwarves were unsurprisingly annoying with all their shooting...
And the Skaven quickly intercepted Wankenstein's undead forces on the west...
My main opponent for the game were Paul's Circus of Corruption which proved extremely annoying and resilient !
With the three of us attacking the four of them, we finally ended up with all the forces of good (Undead and chaos) bottling, leaving the treasures to the bad guys... Oh, and they had the Drakenator with them of course.
Amongst other things, I had a bit of presentation of Man O'war, this game is seemingly coming back big time amongst the players I like and this was the final nail in my resolve's coffin. I'm totes getting on board (see what I did here ?)...
Like I said, I love how out of space and time BOYL is, it's the place where you see plenty of cool stuff like steel masters for the mighty fortress !!!
