Last weekend I hosted the biyearly SR in Aalst “Killbox”. This was the 3rd edition, and we had 19 players attending.
As an experiment I decided to give each table a different scenario, so that scenario selection was random. It didn’t turn out to be a magical solution, it had some positive effects and some negative, no real outliners. I’m not sure if I will apply it to future events, but I might.
The event had all hordes and warmachine factions, something I find really nice, because it creates more variation.
I chose to make it a 3 round event up front since I wanted the players to have a decent lunch break and I didn’t want to rush things to get in that extra round. And for 19 players the advised number of rounds is 5 which it not something I want to squeeze into one day.
We had a best painted award, for players who had fully painted armies. And the winner was Steve Herck.
I really like the atmosphere his models have, I normally don’t really like the looks of Cygnar personally, but the way he painted up his models makes them look really great.
The event was won by our local player Niels de Vlieger (Cygnar), congrats to him! In second place we had Wout Maerschalck (Cryx) and the 3rd spot went to Peter Gaublomme (COC).
I really enjoyed hosting the event and I hope we can keep having an event like this the following years.
I had my camera set up for one of the battles, after I process the video I’ll have it up on YouTube.
That’s all for now.
