On Sunday November 10, 2013, Anime Kat hosted our very first “Tanksgiving” event. Tanksgiving is a Warhammer 40k event. Each participant in the Tanksgiving event fought in a free-for-all vehicle battle against all other participants. When a player’s vehicle was destroyed they re-spawned from any table edge on their next turn. When the game ended prizes where awarded based on points. (1pt-immobilized enemy, 2pt-killed enemy, 3pt-killed enemy by ramming, 5pt-killed enemy Super Heavy). Players also got 10 points for getting the Tanksgiving Cup from the center of the board and successively leaving the battlefield with it.
We had 9 players for our event with some interesting choices of vehicles and obvious winners and losers.
1. Duke – 37 points – Ork Stompa
2. Jeff – 13 points – Imperial Guard Baneblade
3. Carlton – 12 points – Reaver Titan
4. Brandon – 10 points – Chaos Space Marine Helbrute
5. Ben – 6 points – Chaos Space Marine Helbrute
6. Brian – 6 points – Tau Hammerhead Gunship
7. Kieth -5 points – Necron Triarch Stalker
8. Drew -1 points – Space Marine Land Raider Crusader
9. Marcus -0 points – Ork Bommer
The mighty Ork Stompa took out the mightier Reaver Titan half way through the game. The Stompa was the only model to take down the Titan. While Marcus’s Ork Bommer didn’t score any points, it is very important to note that he had the most assists. It was his craft exploding into flames twice that allowed Duke’s Ork Stompa to pick up the trophy twice and scoring 20 points.
