Had my second week at the Aberdeen Wargame Club this week. I've been planning to go along for the best part of a year, but finally managed to arrange a visit (thanks Scott for letting me tag along.)
A very relaxed atmosphere and a good mix of people made it an enjoyable first visit (unsurprisingly though, it was a sausage-fest.)
Got chatting to Gaz about various games and he offered me a game of Dystopian Wars this week. Gaz brought his Kingdom of Britannia fleet (and the sheet and the scenery) while I brought out my (nearly complete) Empire of the Blazing Sun fleet. We agreed on a starter box battle, without the tiny flyers.
We played three full turns before deciding to call it a day (the three turns took over three hours!) I had narrowly destroyed more ships, but my cruisers and battleship had taken a beating, so we decided to call it a gentlemanly draw.
I really wasn't up to speed with a lot of the finer rules, but my opponent was very patient and understanding.
We've a rematch scheduled for next week with some different forces. I've some Inari Scout Gyros to paint up and I think I'll proxy some different ships I don't have the models for.
So thanks Gaz and everyone else there I met
