The last official MIB demo game of Ogre/GEV with miniatures at Dragonmeet. I wore my Steve Jackson fluorescent orange and green Ogre T-shirt for the occasion. The scenario was one of my own devising, and was designed to be unbalanced so that a new player would have a better chance of winning.
More miniatures than you can shake a big stick at. KR Multicase FTW.
I managed to run three games during the day. The show was packed and very busy, and quite frankly as I was running the games on my own three was all I could manage. I actually adjusted the force composition you can see above before the second game started to give me three GEV-PC carriers to move my troops around to bolster my limited force. I woke up today quite hoarse, and was told I sounded sultry by my partner.
Ian was the first winner, seen here pleased at destroying two of my three command posts. The other was a GEV-MCP, which can be seen running away.
Justin won the second game, and was a really good sport for posing for this photo. Again I was forced to retreat my GEV-MCP off the board and concede the game. I shall be writing up this scenario with notes for a future issue of Miniature Wargames & Battlegames magazine with lots of ideas of force compositions etc.
Friends came and said hello during the day, so hi to Adam, and people who had played last year came and thanked me for the running the game. Finally, I was surprised and delighted to meet my old friends Pat and Bill who use to run Warlord Games. Haven't seen them since I went for the funeral of another friend of ours, Kevin, and we had a lot of catching up to do.
