SoCal SmackDown 2011 - The Tables


Here are the tables Tim set up for the Smackdown. I don't know who else contributed to the terrain, but thanks to whomever you are. Hugo and Marco set up the 8th table. It wasn't finished when I took the pics. My first game, oddly enough, will be on the 8th table.

SoCal Smackdown 2011 - Preview Pics


In between games, I took the opportunity to wander around the ballroom and see what other people were playing.

See the pictures below.

SoCal SmackDown


In less than 12 hours, I'll be at the SoCal Smackdown, participating in the 1,750 pt MW tournament. The Battlefoam bag is sitting at the foot of the bed, camera in pocket, dice, and Das Book and the Small Rule Book. I also received 3 Nebelwerfers and a Pz IV F-2 in the mail to complete the army.

I'm taking the following:

HQ 1x Pz III L/M, 1x PZ IV F-2
P1: 4x Pz III L/M
P2: 3x Pz IV F-2
P3: 1x Tiger 1E
P4: 2x 8-Rads
P5: 3x Nebelwerfers with staff and obs


The list is from North Africa (Tunisian Panzer Kompanie). Funny thing is my tanks are all winter white-washed. I wanted Nebelwerfers (smoke!!), but they aren't available in Eastern Front force organizations for a panzer kompanie. So in effect, I'm doing a "counts as" with a force painted for the Eastern Front and using North Africa TO&E. Yay me.

It's a 2-day event with 5 missions. Day 2 for me is iffy because of a family conflict that I just found out about. If I can't make Day 2, it should be okay as Tim has a ringer and usually more people fall off. I'll just be happy to get some games in. It's been over 2 months since I've played. I have no expectations beyond not wanting to be on the wrong side of a 6-1.

As NFL players say after the Super Bowl - I'm going to Disneyland (the Marriott is located across the street).
