Yesterday I reviewed the retail side of Warfare, today I’ll take you through some of our favourites from the demo games and tournaments perspective. More after the jump:
The demo games and the majority of the tournaments are held in the main hall of the sports center, whilst the 40k event and a couple of others are slightly off to the side in the squash courts area.
There were a number of demo games over a wide range of formats involving historical games and various others. I managed to get a few snaps below but there were many more.
Atlas from Promethean Games runs a demo game for X-Wing.
Don’t let that child’s face fool you I’m sure this game was more intense than he was letting on.
Below are some of the highlights of what we saw of the Warhammer tournament (at least before my camera began running out of power).
A very nice looking High Elf army:
What looked to quite a decisive combat unfolding in the middle of this table:
Some nice winter-themed Wood Elves, took quite a few pictures at Ares’ insistence:
Yet more Wood Elves:
This was an awesome looking Christmas-themed Dwarf army with some very nice conversions, I only regret not being able to get a shot of the whole army:
A nice Undead army I came across, I always appreciate a good Undead army:
Warhammer 40k Tournament
Below are some of the highlights of what we saw of the Warhammer 40k tournament at Warfare Reading, again my camera was on its last legs here but I managed to get a few snaps. One thing we did notice was the number of Imperial Knights dotted around the room.
Case in point:
Below is the Imperial Knight army of Dave, the manager of GW Reading. It’s a very nice army, and he conceded that he wasn’t there to make many friends (he’s a nice guy so I let him off), see the images below. Unfortunately he couldn’t fit his lancer into the list, but the rest are impressive.
Overall I was very impressed with the way the event was run and the amount of different things there were to do. Unfortunately we were unable to spend all day there as we certainly would, definitely will be attending in future years (with much more cash available). We may also consider entering into some of the tournaments that are held, although I may need to buy some Imperial Knights first!
