Team Yankee Tournament Report

Tournament Summary:

On April 22, 2017, I ran a Team Yankee tournament at Huzzah Hobbies in Ashburn, VA.  I had approached the owner, Chris Huhn, about doing so because I have seen little Team Yankee action in the area.  But I suspected there were a number of folks that would come out of the woodwork for it.  With the kind support of the WWPD Network, my gamble paid off.  We had 10 tournament players and a couple of interested parties who played a demo game, bringing the total of participants to an even dozen. 

As this was a casual tournament to drum up interest, there was no requirement to have painted models or to play every round.  As a result, some players did not stay for the whole event, and a number of armies were not painted.

Ultramarines versus the Great Devourer

 News from Ultramar!

999.M41-The precious Promethium Mines of Tarsis Ultra come under assault from Hive Fleet Leviathan.  A Gladius Strike Force, led by Captain Narbo of the Ultramarines 3rd Company, deploys to stop the foul xenos from overrunning the damaged mining facility.  Ultramarines forces arrive only moments before the Tyranid horde descends on the mineworks.

The Strike Force sets up a hasty defense towards the center of the facility, but are unable to dig in or form a solid perimeter.   The vehicles form a laager, not knowing from whence the xenos will come. 

Tyranids swarm from all direction!

Hordes of Termagants surge toward Squad Menelaus!
