Well once again the event has come up on us ...... like a freight train int he night!
New Army List.
Tin Soldier Sydney Deposits.
Did I mention Softball?
We had it all!!
All drama aside.
We had our higherst turn out yet. 40 players scared the crap out of me to be truthful. 30-Something is one thing but there is something scarey about the number 40 (maybe its 'cause its my age this year? )and the fact was - we needed more scenery!!
So with a massive build project during the week behind us we entered the Tournament.
In the end we had 39 players. Unfortunately due to my needing to be elsewhere as the day progressed I was unable to play a bye-buster and we went with a bye for the duration....sort of (the bye player received the battle points average of the winners of the round. Their comp etc scores were worked out as an average overall).
Tragedy befell one of our members on sunday when his army went MIA on a train from Strathfield to Penrith. This is a real crappy situation and I hope it is found. Lost Army
Overall I found the games were played in a real positive attitude and everybody seemed to enjoy themselves.
The winners are below as is some of the piccies and a link to a picture hosting site!
Thank you to Tin Soldier, Back 2 Base-IX and Gamesworkshop for all their support.

PS you all left too early - we had dancing girls performing while we cleaned up. Yes, the clean upp took aaaaages......
