As soon at the Naval detachment entered the wood, they were sprung upon by a couple of lurkers. Creepy spiders...
The first was beaten off, which left the second high and dry in the open, to be run down (flown down?) by the Air Boat, with the flyer in support - sort of. Due to Andy's really cool design for the Air Boat, the wings kinda got in the way - we just pretended that the Air Boat was in corner to corner contact with it.
In the meantime, a second deployment of the remaining lurker pushed the boys in blue out of the wood. Well, they were going that way anyway...
My Steam Powered Electric Zappy gun started zapping away at Robin's Katapo Hero, but to little effect.
(though just quietly, I was pleased to see him go - there are few things quite as disconcerting as having a God turn up on your flank!)
And so back to it. Shooting once again proved effective, as did, finally, my Zappy Magician against his Katapo Hero...
Finally, after a couple of aborted attempts at bringing my Steam Tank to his Tarantula, Robin brought his Tarantula to my Steam Tank, along with the rest of his line.
And that was it. Robin lost his God, Hero, a lurker and three Hordes, to my loss of...nothing!
Choice! This happened to be the only game that Robin lost the whole day.
Suffice it to say, he won the tourney.
Good for him. (Though, upon further reflection, I could have won it on points, since my next game had a couple of fundamental oversights in regards to Magicians casting spells over water...)
