GO SOUTH!!!


Things get pretty exciting around Behind Enemy Lines HQ in July and when things get that exciting, it usually means one of a couple of things:

1. A new shiny that we're particularly keen on is about to drop,
2. We got some free stuff in the mail, or
3. IT'S ROAD TRIP TIME!!!

It's number 3 this time around and last weekend, we all piled in the Grumpfwagen and headed south to the dizzy heights of Palmerston North for Panzerschreck! The weather was looking good which meant we shouldnt have to detour through Stratford this year! You know how we roll here....it's photo time. I'll put some words in where I can...




It was going to be a foggy start though...




No snow down to ground level this year, so no snowball fights... :(



Obligatory tank shot...



And we made it....

We settled in with a few drinks and some Rick and Morty before turning in for the night. The gaming would begin in earnest soon enough...


This year's event was back to Late War, 900 points per team member so 1800 points in total. Some pretty interesting lists this year as well.

Damo and I paired up this year and took Kampfgruppe Hummel Tigers with some Nebs and a FW.

Dan partnered up with Bob who took pretty much an identical list...something we'd planned right from the start!



Keep Summer safe Gav...


Battlefront was also in the house!




Also great to see some Star Wars: Legion being played as well!



NERDS!




Some rounds finished quickly for some people...




Eleeefants!!



Serious gamers...



Choo choo!!




Some people are just nuts...










Day 1 rounded out and we headed back to Casa de la Pearce for a catch-up, pizza and movies...as well as banter!



OVER THE FENCE PYLE!!!

Day 2 typically starts out with the beauty parade so the judges can find a winner for the Best Painted award.












Dan's Tigers.



Bob's Tigers.








Brian's Best Painted winning Panzers.







And now back to the action...!



Tiger Rush!

















You'd think someone opened a chip packet with this many seagulls...


And then it was time for prizes..

First Place: FerteeforTeeFerteefor



Second Place: Phila


Phil did have a partner who had to leave early.

Third Place: Trolley Man Dollies! Gav kept Summer safe!!


Best Sports: LOCO



And...the all important Spoon...

Yeah, we got it...and we lead the room in an impromptu Viking clap thanks to Damo!



Once again, we had a fantastic weekend! It's great catching up with good mates for some great gaming.

Massive thanks to the MDS for putting the event on again! We can't wait for next year!  TEAM YANKEE!!
