INVASION! A Photo Report from GuardCon 2017.



This weekend past was GuardCon weekend and a contingent of TCOW members headed over to the Auckland Bridge club to play in the 40k Doubles tournament. There were 40 teams all told for the weekend and so pretty awesome painting! 4 TCOW teams in total:

Daryl and Faizal: A Chaos combo with Nurgle and Khorne joining forces.
Dave and Glen: Kharn and his World Eaters teaming up with Drew Carey.
Monkey and I: The Blues Brothers; the DKoK and the Ultramarines.
Dan and Damo: J R Ewing-bot and Old One Eye.

We had an absolute blast, made some new friends and saw some shit..shit that cant be unseen man.....

Here's a heap of photos from the weekend but beforehand, I really must apologise to Faiz and Big D for fucking up one of my rules and snaking them out of a draw. Mea culpa boys.....


Oh yeah, and we helped make the event happen as well with 9 table of terrain provided by TCOW alums. Nice work boys!












Wubba Lubba Wobots!


And their bug mates...






Right before my turn 1 Vindicator kill. Hellblasters yo!






"How the fuck do I kill a Primarch....?"

There were some seriously beautifully painted armies on the day (and some pretty standard jobs as well). I tried to get as many shots as I could...

El Broodo won the day (cheaty bloody Smite), but then had his head blown off by Lt. Fuckanot straight after that.




The Thin Blue Line. Our final game on Day 2 was against Daryl and Faiz. 90 fucking Plaguebearers....












So that's pretty much all she wrote. We didn't finish in the top but we had a blast playing some new 40k with a heap of cool peeps!

Massive thanks to Stan and Corey for running a great event and also a big thanks to all the sponsors!
