Gnome Con Part 2

Here's the much late part 2 of my Gnome Con coverage. I started Saturday morning watching Mike's Distopian War's game, featuring the martian invaders.

While this was going on people were setting up for the Flames of War tournament.

I don't play Warhammer (In fact I try to avoid it like the plague now), but these miniatures were just too awesome.

My old war buddy Gonzo setting up a Flames of War army.

As usual there was a lot of Star Wars going on

Later I decide to check in on the Distopian War to find out we were all martian food.

Finally I got into a game of Star Fleet Battles, with me, Christian, Mike all playing different Romulian factions. The was also federation and an Orion ship involved. The objective was to recover a stasis box from an asteroid field.

Here's my K-7 Cruiser approaching a group of asteroids.

I also deployed my shuttles to help look.

Meanwhile Christian was deploying his own shuttles to check the asteroids, in the background the Orion ship can be seen.

Mike's brightly colored King Eagle approaching another asteroid with the Federation cruiser near by.

Mike finds the prize and brags.

He was then appropriately hunted down and destroyed.

The federation try to pick up the box, but was going too fast. Not so for Christian.

Christian escapes off board with the prize. Because we weren't using energy allocation the Plasma torpedo's were useless. All I could was fire a few phasers at his rear.

They were going to play another game but, I had to get to work. On the way out I managed to catch the iron painter contest.

This contest included such challenges as walking in place while painting...

...and painting with your fingers.

That's all for now, I'm not going to be doing much this weekend, but I do plan to have a Megablitz game next Saturday. See you then.
