Here’s the army shot.
So I woke up at the but crack of dawn to go.
Here’s a buddy paintng before the tournement began.
And here’s the old fogy who ran it Russ Barns.
And some shots I was able to take of some of the armies.
When everybody was signed in their were 26 people playing. And with everybody signed in we played our first game.
My first apponent was a jolley Orc and Goblin player with Grimgor in his army. I was an idiot and charged my inner circle knights into them and lost. The rest of the game didn’t go well for me. I did happen to kill his giant with crossbows and a unit of handgunners in one turn though. In the end it was a lose for me.
After that game it was launch time.
And the old fogy at work.
After launch we played our second game.
My next apponent was an army guy with Vampires. This went totaly south real quick. My units ran willy nilly and he had a tone of blood knights. Another lose.
With two loses under my belt I wasn’t to happy but we had one more game to go.
My last apponnent was a brettonian player. This was a very challenging game but was very fun. He tried to flank me with pegasus kights but my helblaster and pistoliers made short work of them. My inner circle knights were unfortunetly pinned down in combat with knights errant until th end of the game. But I did cut one of his knights of the realm and grail knights under three fourths of their units thx to the helblaster and the spell rule of burnning iron. In the end it was a tie.
In the end I had 0 wins, 1 tie, and 2 losses. Thought it would be worse. When Russ counted up the battle points I wasn’t dead last but I got 19 out of 26 players. Next time I plan to do another army other then Empire. Either Lizardmen, Warriors of Chaos, or Dwarfs. Anyway had a fairly fun time and I can’t waitto play next year.
Anyway I will have more stuff up a little later this week.
