Cock Fighting

Is it just me, or is the aftermath of the ETC a LOT more interesting to read than the tournament results themselves? Its Mandollies people....

Warhammer Teams Tournament

Ok so I know I said I was going to put up some battle reports for C2A, and I will, but Pete has dropped a bombshell with his announcement of the Teams tournament next year.
I couldn't be more excited about this. Ever since the Karak eight peaks, and Mighty Empire camapigns, I have wanted to do another team tournament. Even though I love the single events, the teams offer something different. And to offer it in a more competitive environment sounds awesome.

So I am definitely in for this, just need to get a team together. So if anyone is interested in making a team with me let me know, or if you need another member for yours, hit me up.

Cheers Guys

Call to Arms

So call to arms was on the weekend. Another well run and enjoyable Wellington tournament. I really enjoy catching up with all the Fantasy guys, everyone knows one another and there was some good banter going around.
The food on the second day was a nice touch, and having coffee on site is always a great thing!!
The standard of painting and look of the armies attending local events is getting better and better which is great to see. Its amazing how much I enjoy games when the opponents army is painted and based. It adds a lot to the game for me.
I won't post up the full results as you can see them on Pete's blog. I came 3rd which I was really happy about, my first podium finish in a two dayer. It also kinda put to bed my day 2 jitters, which I am kinda getting a rep for. :)
I will post up brief reports in my next post, along with photos. Now this is the first tournament i had taken my camera to, so they don't fully document my games, but they give some ideas.
Here are some photos of some of the armies at the event. Both 40k and Fantasy, with a sneaky Warmachine pic in there (how did that happen)!?
The Eldar with the free hand work is Glen Burfields, and is probably one of the best looking 40k armies I have seen.

Speed painted DE + WIP's

Ok so not really speed painted, but I was rushing through them to get them ready for C2A. With the characters coming late from Maelstrom I wasn't able to get army ready, will have it done for Guardcon though.

The cold one knights are beautiful models and were really nice to paint.

I converted my DR from glade riders and corsairs.
