Yep, first WM/H MkII tournament in France.
OK, that's not saying much. Maybe first European also ? Anyway, we drew a staggering 20 players to our good town of Lyons, mostly our usual suspects which you may remember from the old forum threads.
So, six 35 pts games. Basic throwdown, kill the caster-style. We thought everyone would still be learning to play with their new toys, which is why we decided to keep things simple. Of course, nothing is ever easy in life, and the Privateer Update Conspiracy made their move to disrupt our best laid plans with new stat cards only hours before the tournament began. Damn you Yankees !
And to make things worse, fracking elves got onto the top three, Blighted Nyss bracketed by two Iosan scumdogs. A good elf's a dead elf, that's what Goreshade always says.
Anyway, pics. Bad lighting (with power breakdowns and even snow) kept me from shooting bright photographs, but I feel I've managed to capture the mood of the day.
(Only 4 pics/message ? How are we Frenchmen supposed to brag ?)
