Week 1 scores

Matt was able to build up a handy lead, helped by the capture of week 1’s Spaceport hex for bonus points.

There is another game scheduled during the week so the map may change a bit before next Sunday’s round 2 begins.

In the remaining game, Iyanden Eldar fought with the Iron Warriors. Even though the forces of chaos were able to seize the strategic advantage though out the game, they were unable to penetrate the Eldar armour (even with cross-fire) and the game went to Jason 3:0 with BTS, TnH and TSNP. Well played Jason!

Matt continues to build on his lead.

Another cool fact is that every player has won at least 1 game!

*Edit – Matt and Nick managed to play a mid-week 2500pt game. Matt won the game 2:1 (TnH & BTS to TnH)

This puts Matt on 19pts and Nick joins the campaign on 2pts.

So Matt continues to dominate!

Next Sunday 22nd is the final day of the campaign for this year. Can anyone catch Matt? Can we play enough games (5 more games) to begin capturing territories off each-other?

Next week will see Titans and Tau amongst other armies, coming to play!

A comfortable win to Matt (as usual 🙂 ).

Interesting facts:

  • 12 players have played 20 games of Epic over the last 4 weeks.
  • Matt played 8 games and won every single one (the rest of us need to lift our game).

Victory Goals scored over the 20 games:

  • Take and Hold – 19
  • Break Their Spirit – 12
  • Blitz – 11
  • Defend the Flag – 9
  • They Shall Not Pass – 6

As usual with this campaign, there is a great reward in participation. I value players turning up and joining in the fun more than winning or losing!

A big Thankyou to all 12 players that joined in (and to all the interested onlookers that watched).

Also a HUGE thanks goes out to Tabletop Gamers Association for the amazing support and encouragement they provide!

 

The War Without End will continue in 2015!

Steve.
