Last weekend was the Welsh Open, if you have listened to the podcast you will know this is one of our favourite events of the year. This year was 1675pts LW. I was using the 7th Armored with Patton (yes I saw that roll of the eyes!).
podcast edited surprisingly quickly and so I didn't see the point of going into too much detail here.
I started off vs Simon who had Hungarian armour. We played Counter Attack and as I auto attacked I was the attacker. The game was over before it really started and I was able to kill both his artillery platoons and his ambush for little lose to myself. Even my M8 Scouts did well killing the Hungarian Special character. 6-1 to me.
As for the Welsh Open it was a great event. The new Venue is amazing and is clearly the best venue I have ever been too. We might even have to move my tournements to it in the future! The tournament itself was run well which after the rocky couple of weeks leading up to it was quite an achievement. I would recommend the Welsh Open and Firestorm games to any gamer. The Welsh Open is 1500pts MW next year and I might skip a year as it's always the same weekend as Tank Fest at Bovington and as MW is my least favourite period (and with baby number two on the way I need to reduce my tournaments next year) it seems a good year to miss it. But I will definetly be going to 2017 which should be EW.
