X - Wing Post Con Report
Thanks to all those who took part in Conclave 2014's X-Wing Tournament, especially to those who travelled! The tournament was fought over 5 rounds & came right down to the wire in the final round, with a possibility of 4 different winners dependent of how results went! Even with this very competitive outcome the games were still fought in genuine good spirit & gentlemanliness (as all x-wing matches seem to go). There was not one single gripe or rules argument brought to me throughout the whole day! There was also a great variety in the lists used, which also was good to see; from Tie Swarms to Shuttle & multi-Bounty Hunter combos & B-Wing heavy hitters to X-Wing & Y-Wing mixes.
The top 3 at the end of the day:
1) Sam Santijirakun (Imperial)
2) Gearoid Madden (Rebel)
3) Joe Cherry (Imperial)
Thanks again to all those who came to play & i'll see you next time!

Godslayer is a fast tactical skirmish based game set in the world of Calydorn.
A world where culture is as varied as it is deadly, a land of lost names and forgotten stories, imposing Empires and opportunity. The world of Calydorn is endowed with conquering empires on the rise, disintegrating cultures in decline, and decadent nations wallowing in memories of their erstwhile glory - from the sinister society of the Mortan Empire with its legions, necromancers and alchemists to the noble culture of the Halodyne pantheists and their city-states; from the nature-worshipping Wyldfolk dedicated to the resurrection of The Goddess to the wild berserkers of the Nordgaard's Earth-god worshippers.
The Gathering and Conclave are proud to announce that the Godslayer Nationals and the Epic Grudge Match will be held at Conclave. With Ian from hobby shack to be the vigilator. Regardless of whether you have played this game or not this will be one to see!
