Autumn Assault 98 Post-Event Blurb

Subject: Autumn Assault 98 Post-Event Blurb

When: Sat Nov 14 1998
Where: Ottawa
2 Stargrunt Scenarios 
EFSB Scenario
FT Scenario

FT was big NAC fleet (probably about 7-8 heavy capitals, plus 
cruisers, frigates, destroyers, corvettes, and lots of fighter 
groups) vs. a Savasku fleet. Maybe Tom will post how this one came 
out as he ran it. 

EFSB was Narn vs. Centauri with the Centauri trying to kill a big 
huge monster called the BinTak. Good battle apparently. Excellent 
painted minis. 

SG2 #1 was Coup D'Etoile which was also known as Junta Grunt. Based 
off the boardgame Hunta, players played factions (army, navy, air 
force, police, president, and maybe some others). They all vied to 
control objective buildings and either support or destroy El 
Presidente. Playtests I played were a hoot. Treachery and violence... 
and all in the spirit of fun. 

SG2 #2 was my event, an OU/UN assault versus an LLAR/NSL held 
position. I am working on a detailed AAR with photos of before, 
during and after the battle, as well as OBs, analysis, and pointers 
to some rules we used. A good fight. Will post links to the AAR later 
this week - to whichever list seems appropriate....

These events were sponsored jointly by Geo-Hex (Thanks KR!), Ground 
Zero (Thanks Jon T), and Eureka (Thanks Nic!). No one went away empty 
handed who played in these scenarios, and several sets of various 
rules were handed out - new blood for the machine! The minis were 
well recieved too. The players involved, and also some number of 
interested passers-by were given some bumpf which listed 
distributors, net resources, and a bit about each of the GZG games. 
Thanks to all the sponsors, I think a very good impression was made. 
Thanks to Tom, and Jim and Dean who ran the other events. 

See you in the funny papers.
