Miniature Building Authority hosted a Game Day

Miniature Building Authority hosted a Game Day in Fayetteville at Tree Fort Games
Schedule below - Plans were to put on A Black Powder pickup Pirate game and  a Black Powder AWI British Raiding game for my new friend Tracy. But we ended up spending time in the Iraq game and Zombie game both of which ended with glorious explosions and heavy American casualties in the first and a Zombie barbeque in the second (with an almost Phyricc victory by the Contractor CNN team) the infamous 'governor' of walking dead fame must have started out his career as my peaceful contractors were attacked by a rogue military unit under the command of LT. Governor - Three contractors escaped but without the HVT. But 36 to 38 zombies were killed. Half by the sacrifice of the female CNN reporter who fired her weapon into the fuel truck rather than end up a zombie!

The Iraq game particularly was fun and had an interesting move sequence that kept all the players pretty much heavily involved While one patrol took heavy damage and had to be reinforced by Navy Seals - The second squad was more successful assisting Iraq military in suppressing insurgents in a 5 story apartment building. The death of the American commander in the American compound delayed an adequate response to an Elite unit of insurgents that popped up on the freeway mortared the compound and attacks from the insurgent supported Mosque. A predator drone and gun ship were two turns away from delivering a killing blow to these arrogant insurgents - who were so brazen as to have lured a naïve CNN reporter for an interview on top of the Mosque as  snipers shot and killed American peacekeepers and UN support mission personnel
Pics below
Iraq Military Training Compound - Americans next time will stay in side next time the compound as mobile reinforcements rather then be spread out on the table.
Tracy - Go Seahawks  on the American side of the table
Iraq 7-11 gas station with American seal team deployed to protect fuel access

 Mike - Iraqi police  John Ford Iraq forces commander

Falaffle House hidden Insurgent Rpg

Home sweet home at the beginning American anti tank weapons were instrumental in damaging some of the insurgents assaulting the compound from across the street to the north east.

The insurgent supported Mosque as well as the 5 story insurgent fire team headquarters

The infamous overpass
 One American patrol

Kirk Stephens - the host and MBA game sponsor, John Ford observing his troops

oops IED explodes stopping the column cold
and causes the US post commander to request Helicopter QRF Seal team,
 Apache Gunship, and predator drone support - Seal team arrived first with
the rest not shortly far behind


Before the insurgents get blasted by US forces from the compound
and Stryker squad assaults from the rear

CNN monitors UN traffic accident after insurgent sniper kills the driver

CNN news crew

Insurgent RPG sniper (funny thing sniper is killed -

 producing much laughter oops Ghost snipers have now effect

Mortar round lands in American compound

The insurgents start the chain reaction explosion

Al-Qaeda Insurgents destroyed Fuel Truck with RPG shock and awe


Coming to the rescue Navy Seals swoop in on a Black hawk helo
where an errant stinger missile misses the chopper and both the black hawk and
Seal team deal pay back for American losses in the final game turn

Zombie land in Iraq
Contractor Objectives - Find the HVT and kill Zombies and escape
where the HVT was located in A7 / A2 Compound

The Governor ambushes the contractors - contractors try to stop Governor by
 tapping the Humvee with a light Toyota pickup
Ambushed by the Governor - before he had the eyepatch and ruled woodburry with an iron fist

C4 first search target for HVT
Contractors use secondary vehicles large truck and yellow minivan cab followed up by remaining Contractor Humvee in an attempt to complete the mission
White Acura is later swarmed by Zombies driver escapes only to be killed by a zombie pitbill

Trapped and blocked off from escape on all sides with the Governor behind us
Tracy grabs my weapon and desperately shoots up the Tanker tuck in front of us.
