Had a great game of BA at Dragon Fire Games last week. Bloody and furious with plenty of cold steel action!

looking forward to it, lots of painted minis, pre loved armies and terrain for sale on the drunken dragoons stall.

Let me know if you want your well painted army sold and do not want it destroyed in the scrummage of the bring and buy stall.

we will be there for all three days……spending too much money!

Well CANCON is over for another year and the Tasmanian 'Bunker Rats' contingent did not disgrace themselves.

Richard Taylor took a much derided army to the EW comp and placed 16th out of 40+,with 4 mighty wins I also witnessed Andrew Oates apologising to Richard and shaking his hand – I think Richard was more pleased with that than all the loot he won! (mind you now you are 16th not 20th you might have to give the loot back?)

Twisty played……….ahem……..and fell victim to CANCON terrain and a hangover but also managed to avoid getting arrested at the nightclub with one of the Northern Mondayv Knights so I guess that counts as a win!

The Australia day BBQ was great with 30+ due to the presence of a large NZ contingent – one of whom is the new MW FOW champ – congrats to Rob Torrens, he also a man of good taste as he knocked back shots of Ouzo with the Tasmanians in celebration.

Yours truly played in the Uranus campaign and managed 5 wins and 1 loss with the highlight of having the honour of storming the bridge at Kalach to close the pincers on the Germans in Stalingrad late on the last day. I put all my victories down to wearing my lucky Zhukov watch!

All in all a top weekend despite the weathers best efforts we made it home late last night – the boys used the 2 hour delay at Canberra to work on their lists for next year!
