Chat: Battle Brothers Tournament

As Commissar Raphel said in his post very early this morning, today we have both partaken in a Battle Brothers style tournament, run for our school club! This involved us taking a 450 point army and teaming up with someone else to form a medium sized army that we then used to fight other pairs. I teamed up with a really nice guy called Lucas, who was very new to the hobby, and CR teamed with Jo, an experienced Tyranid player from last years finals.
Myself and Lucas managed to win all our games and get a good chunk if hobby points, while we also got a 20 point bonus because I had helped to mentor him through collecting, painting and playing with his first models. We were leading for a long time, however after the nominations we had drawn level with our friend Jake and his battle brother, meaning we had to do a good old RATLING GUN CHALLENGE, to decide who won! In the end Jake's team took out the tournament, yet we still got some great prizes. I personally walked away with 2 DV Space Marine characters, an old Logan Grimnar model, before he got on that stupid fecking sleigh, as well as a dice box and a handful of hobby bits! 
I would like to thank everyone who helped organise this tournament, and congratulate all the players - it was great fun. Special congrats have to go to Jake, Alex and Jo (who placed 3rd just behind me), and my battle brother Lucas. He really excelled himself in terms of painting, but his play and sportsmanship was exemplary. 
Stay Tuned as we have lots to share from our little hiatus, and much more to build, paint and play!

  1. Myself and Jo didn't get matched with you and Lucas but from what I saw and by the looks of his Deff Dread, hes gonna be an excellent painter and a real nice guy to play against.
