Despite my best efforts I had ended up contesting a tile with Lano for this weeks game in our summer offensive.
I can only imagine the smile on the 'Smiling assassin's' face as he was texting me to tell me the news!

Sorry for the long gap between posts but there is a lot going on behind the scenes at Riotville and I missed the games last week at Lano's due to spending most of the Bank holiday weekend drunk in the sunshine!
Anyway back to business!

With there being 5 generals taking part in the summer offensive this year we have decided to use a rotation system. With Lano not playing last week and Phil missing the next two weekends it was decided that I would sit out this week. . . . .
Then I got a lovely surprise . . . . . . sort of . . . . .

This Sunday saw our summer offensive kick off with Lee's Empire and Macca's Undead contesting one table while Phil's Dark Elves and my Warriors of Chaos clashed on the other table.

This Thursday saw 5 of us throw down in the alternate history world of Scythe.
Tim was desperate to play with his new toys so we walked in to find the board fully set up. Of course he included all the new factions, airships, and map expansion ;0)
With three new players (Lano, Tookey and Paul) the first thing the salty dogs Tim and I told them was how it was nearly impossible to score the 'objective cards' . . . . . .
So of course they all score their objective cards early in the game!
I ended up playing as the Polish and with 5 players contesting the board found it really difficult to expand beyond my boarders.
Sandwiched between the Germans and British (Paul and Tim) I decided to play the long game and try to make a land grab late in the game via the tunnel complex.
Unfortunately I waited too long and never had the resources or power to keep my gains.
This saw Lano (I think) the winner with everyone else finishing well ahead of me at the final whistle.

With no real need to go to Salute and absolutely no need to buy ANYTHING I decided to give Salute a swerve this year . . . . but this did not stop me going to the post-Salute gathering at Lano's afterwards. And I'm really pleased I did!

I have been on radio silence for the last week as I have been on hols with the family.
I landed back to the grey skies of the UK yesterday and decided I needed to re-visit Armageddon to blast away the post hols blues.
The plan was to get my Imperial guard kill-team finished while away but the kids are at that age where they always want to be doing something.
