Martial Law Con Debut

HoD here with a rare front page post.

First off our first MLC Champion... EAP!

Makari took second and Wayno took the Single Model Painting Award with his Slaanesh Prince.

Yesterday (Oct. 15th) we ushered in our new yearly club event Martial Law Con with 12 members able to attend. 5 games, starting at 750 pts with the first mission and ending with 1750 pts with mission 5. Beer, food, comrodery and games... what more could a gamer ask for.

Pretzel brought the meat... and I'm not talking about gaming or what's in his pants, but huge Carfanga italian sausages and burgers.... mmm mmm good! With everyone else pitching in with various desserts, sides and BEER!

Great day of gaming... although I fell way short with my Imperial Fists.

HoD signing off.......

Martial Law invades YottaQuest

Hey guys Drkmorals here stealing some time on the front page when no one else is looking. Thought I would lay down a quick review and rundown of the event this Sunday. Both here and on my personal blog. (shameless plug at the end of the article.)  
Anyway this last Sunday I was invited to show up and hang out with fellow club members Sandman and Warmonger for the YottaQuest Lazy Sunday event. I had a pretty hectic week but I didn’t actually have any plans Sunday so this worked out perfect.  
Yottaquest is in cincinatti and you can check out the main website here. You can actually register for events through the website if you sign up for an account and clean simple process.  The lazy Sunday event is a free 1000 point tourney once a month. Yep free tourney how cool is that? With Store credit as prizes.
First place is 15
Best painted is 10
Best sportsman is 5
Honestly pretty good for a free event.
The store is located in a downtown type area with parking in the rear. This was my first time at Yottaquest but I will say I was impressed overall. The store itself is stocked well with 40k, Fantasy, and several other games. The store is popular and has a great turn out of regular players of various genre’s . The staff was friendly, engaging and knowledgeable.  It seemed important to them that the customer service was good and you enjoyed your visit to the store. (which honestly in any business can go a long way) The game room was in the back in almost a garage like area but it was fine all be it a little tight on space but still comfortable.
The tourney itself had 8 people show up to hang out and throw dice for the day.
There ended up being a nice spread of armies though.
1 IG
2 Necron
1 Orks
1 Space Wolves
1 Grey Knights
1 Blood Angels
1 Space Marines

The day itself was filled with many moments of nonsense and fun. Warmonger and sandman actually ended up being paired off round one and had a good back and forth battle. I know because I had given each of them their new club dice and when one person’s was rolling well for a turn they would loudly tell me they liked the dice… Then usually a short time later the opposite person would tell me the same thing lol.  Sandman ended up coming out on top of the battle but not to be out done Warmonger “accidently” threw away Sandman’s lunch. I am sure it was just a coincidence that it happened after his loss, however watching Sandman complain and panic a bit while searching for his burger, while Monger explained he thought the bag was empty was pretty priceless.
In round two I faced off against Sandman in what turned out to be a very solid game that went to turn 7. We ended up with a draw, a bloody knock down drag out draw but a draw none the less. There had been several times when it could have gone either way but the dice decided not.
Sandman and Myself tied for first place. Sandman ended up taking first place and I took best painted. Not to be left out Monger ended up with best sportsman. It was only after they announced that we had taken the spots that people noticed we had been wearing the same club shirt which was funny as well.  
Overall again I had a great time and would go back to the event in the future. I would recommend it to others as well if you’re in the area. I’ll be posting Bat reps of some type in to follow in the near future, and will bother Sandman to do the same. =P
Real quick want to point out that Warmonger does most his posting here, and in the Martial Law forums. Sandman has a personal blog 73rd Hellion Devildogs  that I encourage you to take a look at and bother him about some battle reports as well =P . You can find my ramblings here from time to time, as well as my personal site (shameless self plug earlier warned about) which I will proudly say went past 50,000 hits last week and we still aren’t a year old. (shameless self pat on back) I also can be found putting together the FTW Blog spotlight over on FTW as I again try to add some positive to the online community we are building. (shameless self plug again!!!) The point is feel free to track any of us down with comments, emails, feedbacks,  or questions about the local area, events  or hobby.
