Dave you are da Man! Best tournament I have been too in a very long time! It has inspired a brief flicker of hope in what can only be a dismal 40k calendar.

To all those I played, I would like to thank you for the 6 awesome games I had over the weekend! to those I beat in the first 5 I hope you had fun regardless (even if the mission was against you!). It may also interest you that Michael steamrolled his Nids over me in the 6th game in a well deserved and very enjoyable pummelling smile.gif (btw Michael if you read this i forgot your handle so pm me!)

At the end of the day the complete lack of final places and to be honest the way excellent prize support meant that everyone walked away with a feeling of 'merit' lol

So 3 cheers for Dave, Lets see more of that I say! and a cheer for the gumby Liam 'Angus' Pendergast tongue.gif

Finally for all those who asked about my Ultramarines, I will be more than likely throwing up a how to on the hand crafted terrain and painting methods used in my army (which funnily enough isnt even finished yet!)

Regards to all,

Harley

First time I've played 40K at Cancon and this was one of the best thought out and run events I've ever seen. Each of the games was different and the plan interesting. Dave you did an awesome job and I hope you run this again next year. armata_PDT_37.gif armata_PDT_34.gif

The only downside for me was the number of rude people. You're big boys and girls now, read the rules which Dave provided in black and white and FOLLOW THE TIMES! To be still playing your game 50 minutes after the next game was supposed to start is very poor. You do not need a TO coming around chasing you to put your dice down. armata_PDT_33.gif

Top weekend mate, my best Cancon to date.

I also enjoyed the non competitive atmosphere and relaxed completely. when drawn vs my mates, it was a cmpletely awesome move to just abandon play and go visit the rest of Cancon. For the first time I really did see everything at a Cancon and really had a blast. Somehow, in the rounds that I did play in, I managed to win my games... Some habits are hard to break, I guess winning is still important to me for it's own sake. But I'm sorry I missed the chance to +1 the game vs the Death Company player - should have given a "cancon reroll" for his DC when they failed to arrive to support the Termies who just dropped in... would have been awesome to see what would have happend if they both dropped at once - they'd have both earned some awesome points I'm thinking!

I encourage everyone at next year's friendly to give liberal doses of "cancon rerolls" to players who bring such cool thematic armies... like that Death Co/Termie army full of captains and chaplains.... smile.gif

Thanks to all my opponents, particulalry those who deigned to play against me (While Richard and Steve obviously pheared my awesome army and so bribed me with promises of cute cosplay girls to vote on)

Props to Dave for bringin a new system into the Cancon mix, long live the 2-day 40K format! armata_PDT_37.gif

Firstly,
That was the best 5 games i have played in 7 Cancon Adventures. Dave did an amazing job on this. AMAZING!

Who'd have thought we were getting goodie bags at a con? Brilliant.
Secret objective, Sure i can avoid my Warlord from getting Schwacked.

Secondly,

Had a ball over the weekend! Huge thanks to Dave for running his first event and what a success it was!
Had a great time playing people I had never played before and they were all great opponents!

I had the purple night lords, aka the bat lords biggrin.gif


That was an awesome game, all except for your Warlord melting his own face off sad.gif

I wood also like to apologise to all who had the misfortune of a servitor stomping, i probably should have had a few practice games to see what they would do.

Mine was teh brown and Light Aqua smace sparines on the purple sparkly bases army, which i am not apologising for.
Also +1 on the Substitute Liam discussion.

Psuedo.
