There were 40 players in total and all I can say that the Sons of Russ and Sanguinious were out in force with 16 armies. Every other table had Power Armour of some sort on it with around 24 armies being a marine army.
Toy Soldier was held over two days with 3 games on Saturday and 2 games on Sunday. For those who don't know Toy Soldier was a 1750 tournament with two custom missions and missions from the rule book.
I had a tough weekend pulling Blood Angels for first game and managed to pull a draw out of a potential loss. This must have slowed my momentum as I went on to get 2 more draws to finish off the first day.
My Second day started better after I got a victory against Imperial Guard which sent me into the top ten at which point I faced off against the Tyranids and unfortunately lost my last battle after probably one of the most bloody battles I have ever fought!
As I have already said there was a lot of Space Wolf armies around and to be honest I did not manage to get round and have a look at them all. Some were painted and were not but one that caught my eye was the Space Wolf army of Iain Miller.
Iain was running a Mech Force led by a Thunder Lord with 4 Thunder wolf cavalry using the Thunderwolves from Mr Dandy. I have never seen these models up close and I was really impressed with them even more so by Iains really nice paint job.
I spoke with Iain after the tourney and was surprised to find out he was a Space Wolves Blog fan and is a regular visitor to the site!
Now that I have had some sleep I'll start working on my battle reports to be posted in upcoming weeks after Adam finishes his BOTCH battle reports.
