I got back home from Cancon 2011 late last night (midnight in fact). Still, the tiredness was purely physically as my mind was still racing. I have just had three days of fun and wargaming in the best spirit. I will write more on this later but a brief summary will have to serve here.
On days one and two I played four games of DBMM with an army and a set of rules I was unfamiliar with. The result was 2 wins and 2 losses and I came exactly half way up to field of 21 (11th out of the 21 so I guess that makes me the average measure all should be measured by 😆 )
Yesterday, the third day, I played in the DBA competition – a set of rules that I have had two games with in the last 10 years. I was also using an army that I had only finished painting the day before Cancon began so I had not used before. I played six games in this competition, losing the first game then winning the next 5. At the end, I won the second place in the Cancon 2011 DBA competition.
I can recommend this competition for anyone who likes to play games, there are many games on offer and it is a major event in Canberra each year – well worth coming from overseas for as well as at this time of the year, Oz is nicely warm.
More will be written later this week as I cover all some AAR’s as well as some photographs of the games and the armies I used.
