First we watched a game of Dropzone Commander between Scott and James. They've only had the minis for a few days, but the ever prolific Scott (of Itty Bitty Soldiers fame) already has 4 starter factions painted up! In this game, we watched Scott's Terran UCM vs James' Shaltari. James hasn't yet had a chance to paint up his own Shaltari, but you can look at Scott's on his blog.

After DZC, Tom and I played on Scott's Polish Lancers vs Soviet Strelkovy table. A full AAR will be forthcoming, but you can see how it played out when Scott played it here
|So many soviets.|
Near the end of the evening, Alex joined us for a game of Saga. He brought his Welsh and I ran my Normans. Check out the full AAR over on The Tapestry in the next few days!

In all, Tom and I had a great time. Kudos to Scott and the rest of the NOVA Open event. I will definitely be returning next year!
