Breakthrough Assault 2 AAR and Photo Dump

Hello All

This weekend was the second Breakthrough Assault tournament, but the first to be held in Dorset, UK. 28 gamers mostly from the area but some from all over the UK (the Cairns brothers came from Aberdeen the mad men!) come for the two day four game Late War event.
The nicest thing about the event was see a lot of new faces to the tournament scene as well as some of the better players in the country making their way down to sunny Bournemouth. A big surprise to everyone who come was the number of tank armies, of the 28 lists 16 were tanks and only 6 were infantry.

  1. Steve Charlton - 65pts
  2. Graham Willmott - 64pts
  3. Kevin Perry - 59pts - 3rd on count back

Well done to Steve, Graham and KP for placing and to everyone else for making a great atmosphere. A special well done to Winner Dave and Justin for surprising themselves and finishing so high in the rankings.

Overall bar a few problems with the venue the event went very well, and I have already got plans for next year. All the guys seemed to enjoy the weekend (and the night out on Saturday but for legal  reasons I can't talk about that!?!) and hopefully we'll see them all back next year along with a few others.

I'll leave you with a some photos from the weekend.

Thanks for reading
