It seems we must have had a dropout somewhere... we should be 33 players in this tournament.

Other interesting information is distribution:

Adeptus Astartes Armies: 12/33
6 Space Marines (Codex Compliant)
5 Space Wolves
1 Black Templar

Other Imperial Armies: 6/33
3 Astra Militarum
2 Adepta Sororitas

Chaos Armies: 6/33
2 World Eaters
2 Death Guard
1 Chaos Daemons
1 Chaos Space Marines

Xenos Armies: 9/33
4 Tyranids
2 Aeldari

I have no idea whom I shall be facing first or how the tournament will go for me. I have a 90% winrate for 2000pts so it is about time I find myself some tough opponents!

Even if I lose all my games, I will have fun!

Even if I lose all 5 games, my winrate will be at 60%.

Wish me luck!

Bloody Orks!

Would it be ironic if I got to play against the only Ork in the Tournament?

My favourite player going up against my second favourite player in this tournament? That's not irony, that's the best battle report ever!

Well, well... I have some interesting new for you after Day 1 of the tournament!

Dude I have to say I admire the dedication you have with painting these little figures...back when I was a very young lad I had similar interests...that was until the shop I use to buy the paint from closed....but heck that is a lot of effort but more so the PATIENCE my guy!!

Yeah man. I actually have a LOT of models from when I was young that I never painted. I am finally getting through the backlog now.

And now it's more of a sentimental thing than it ever was right! I should get back on that wagon aswell.

So with Warhammer 40,000 I can still play games with even my old models so the plan is to make an absolutely massive Imperial Army that I can play in large scale games.
