Adepticon 2011 Coverage Part 2

SUNDAY

Sunday tends to be a full day for me. For the past 3 years, I've run the Necromunda tournament on Sunday, usually between 10-4. This year we got a late start, going from 11:30 to 4:30pm. By Sunday, most of the events are winding down and it's been rather difficult to get attendees.

To drum up attendance and be more accomodating to 40K players (who are generally playing in the Gladiator or Team tournaments during the day), next year I'm going to run 'Necromunda by Night', an evening tournament that includes special conditions as the night wears on.

Necromunda Tournament

This year I expanded the rules a bit to include elements from Inquisimunda. The 2011 scenario pack is a good way for newcomers to Inquisimunda to get into the added complexity beyond the rules for Necromunda itself.



Anton Zaleski's Spyrers (with Ogryn buddy) try to hide from incoming fire.


Jason Lewis' Van Saars surround The Stranger (the only surviving member of Matt Sears' Escher gang)!



Tyler Brummit's Orlocks fire from cover, as Mike Donaker's Sniper stealthily deploys atop the watertower...



Shawn's Redemptionists rush forward to burn the heretics!


I was answering so many questions (you know who you are!), I figured I'd try and make some money!....


Can't blame a guy for trying...




Mike Donaker's Orlock Heavy and Sniper hired gun search for targets...



As always, prize support is awesome, even for a tiny tournament with 6 players!


First place this year went to Mike Donaker, who's Arbites-inspired Orlocks took the field with 34 total points. Second place went to Anton Zaleski and his Spyrers with 31 total points. Third place went to Shawn G., the first Redemptionist player we've ever had, with 29 total points.

Thanks again to all the players and staff who helped make this tournament what it is!


That's all, folks! So long...and thanks for all the fish.

Your Necromunda terrain is still some of the best stuff I've seen.

@Felix: Thanks, though it needs some touch-up after the move.

I was actually approached at Adepticon to do some terrain for an upcoming, unreleased game...

I'm surprised there were only 6 players. It's easy to get a game fo 40k in, but Necromunda....thats tough!
