Mini-Arcon

I'm way behind on (b)logging! It's pretty busy with work, some studies on the side, life and hobbying! I was, and still am, planning on writing up some kind of battle reports from the Outland Oslo Open tournament. I was nearly done with the first one, but now I cannot find the draft!

I might just put up the pictures I took, and just do some captions and summaries of each game, instead of writing a whole lot of text. I found it really hard to remeber to record what is happening in each game. Especially in a tournament game, where you have a limited amount of time each game. And there was quiet a few exciting games, and I was pulled into the action! I do however have some pictures and the results! Let's just say I averaged: two win, one draw and two losses!

On Saturday I'm going to Mini-Arcon. The gaming club I'm part of, Spillforeningen The Fellowship, are hosting a 500 points of Lord of the Rings/Hobbit Strategy Battle Game tournament. Three games on Saturday and two games on Sunday! I'm looking forward to playing LOTR/Hobbit SBG at a tournament again. My first and last time was at Arcon this summer, I borrowed Joakim's Uruk-hai (thanks). I have now painted up a host from the White City, Minas Tirith!

My list will be:

  • 7 might, 31 models, 500 points 

Warband 1, 4/12

Faramir, Captain of Gondor with Horse; Heavy armour; Lance; Shield; 
4 Knight of Minas Tirith with Shield; 

Warband 2, 12/12

Cirion, Lieutenant of Amon Barad
1 Warrior of Minas Tirith with Shield; Spear; Banner; 
4 Warrior of Minas Tirith with Shield; Spear; 
5 Citadel Guard with Spear; Longbow; 
2 Guard of the Fountain Court with Shield; 

Warband 3, 12/12

Beregond
5 Warrior of Minas Tirith with Shield; Spear; 
5 Citadel Guard with Spear; Longbow; 
2 Guard of the Fountain Court with Shield; 

I still have 4 spear tips and 6 bow tips to paint! I'll post some pictures when I'm done! And I'll take pictures from the tournament!

In the meanwhile, there has been a lot of exciting news from Games Workshop, with them starting up a new Specialist Games team! And looking for at least three new staff members: Middle Earth manager, writer and models designer!

Andreas can tell you all about it on the Spillforeningen The Fellowship YouTube channel!

If you play LOTR/Hobbit SBG, what do you think about my list? What do you think about the news about the Specialist Games team?
