The Ferrograd pirate game was the scheduled to be a kind 'getting to know you' game where we play fast and loose and get use to the real, live person that we are playing against rather than the forum avatar. Cheetor had brought his Orky pirates safely across the sea and JB manfully took to the task of GM'ing the shenanigans. I've posted plenty about this scenario already so I won't repeat my self but I'll run through the happenings as I can recall them.
Meanwhile some of the pirates reach the first building, knock down the door and start searching for a crate.
We had a great game and it was great to find that Cheetor, Asslessman and myself all like the same kind of game. Story driven daftness is what it's all about!
There were some incidents I forgot to photograph in all the excitement, Lucky the pirate holding off half a dozen green skins (including a cat) for 3 rounds all on his own. Two security officers going toe to toe with Billy in the games room and taking two wounds off him! And the greenskin chuckle brothers staggering through the streets with a big gold crate.
The game worked just as planned and seeing the board in all it's glory was well worth the hassle. There were loads of lovely comments from other gamers which is always nice. I'll write a bit more about the weekend when info the next couple of reports but the main thing to take away is that the folks at foundry are incredibly welcoming and once it's finished, the new foundry HQ is going to be a fantastic place to visit. Quote of the weekend was when we were sitting have a chat with the man himself , Bryan Ansell, 'so why is it that the area is the centre of the Toy Soldier industry?' 'That'll probably be down to me' he replied without a pause. Legend.
