Recruits 2008 Convention
On Sept. 13th, I went to the Recruits Convention http://recruits.mtswebsites.com/index.php along with my friends, Steve (CombatColours) and Curtis. We missed the morning session, but was there for the afternoon session. Steve ran his BKC game there and from what I was told had a lot of fun. Curtis was not able to get in a game (BUMMER!), but enjoyed the shopping.
I got into a 1/144th game of "The Marianas Turkey Shoot" run by our Kansas City friend, Dave Yates. I had fun. I started off on the US Navy side and scored 2 kills with one pilot and 1 kill with his wingman before I switched sides due to several Japanese players having to leave early. Unfortunately, I was not able to down any of the Hellcats, but did manage to hit a couple of them.
The game was massive. There was 12 Hellcats, 8 Zeros, and 16 Judys. I don't know the actual score at the end of the game, but I believe the last count was 4 Hellcats and 24 Japaneses planes were shot down (the Japaneses were able to bring in six more planes after losing six planes...it was an endless wave...)
I had forgotten my camera, so I had to use the camera on my cell phone...sorry for the bad pictures!
