The Pompey Pillage was held over the bank holiday weekend and the CSM boys were there in force with over 9 of us in the 27 strong field.
The event had some comp and a restriction on the number of fliers you could take which made all the difference in the world. There was a huge variety in the lists at the event and the atmosphere was brilliant. Just how tournaments used to be, and should be.
As a group we all did rather well:
- Steve Pearce took home the most sporting trophy.
- Gary Marsh came 3rd in gaming, almost entirely due to his cheesy waac Helldrake so I am told… 😉 and a very respectable 2nd in the best painted competition as well.
- Pete Bradley took home best painted with his lovely nurgle daemon army
As well as second place we had 7th, joint 7th, 9th, 10th and 11th so 6 places from the top 11. Not bad eh?
Personally I had a great time and really enjoyed my games, the weekend and the atmosphere. Taking 7th was a surprise as well given I had hardly played much recently. I was pretty close to just giving up on the hobby recently but this weekend has really revived my interest in it all. If we can find more events like Pompey then the future is bright and we can leave the waacers to their copy and paste lists at their copy and paste events!
Now, on to planning that pre heresy list….
