I've finished hosting my first tourney Saturday. I had an awesome time meeting, and battling, Necroblade, jschild, and jschild's son. They are great people to hang around, and I hope that we can battle again soon.

For this blog, I'm going to discuss the battles I participated in. In a few days I'll have the full tourney results.

I'll say now that I won the $40 prize. I have a feeling that they let me win. (I went 5-1! How else is that possible!?! Maybe I'm better than I thought, but I don't know...)
Well, here are the armies I played:
Viper Legionaries
Venoc Warlord
Vipers x4
Roman Legos x2
Morgrimm Forgehammer

Snowfire Lizards
Greenscales x2
Battle 1: Viper Legos Vs. jschild's son's Phantom Marro on UnMarvelous
I kinda feel sorry for the little guy. This was his first time playing against someone besides his dad, as far as I know, and I feel I overbeat him. He was experienced with the guys he had, such as the PKs. I quickly Frenzied to his start zone when half his guys were there, and defeated him with half my army intact. But I must say that when he gets older he will be a force to reckon with. Those Groks were a pain.

Battle 2: Snowfire Lizards Vs. Necroblade's A Guy Richie Movie On Failed Negotiations.
This was an awesome battle. In one round I eliminated half his army with Zelrig and Neilfhiem. His GGs couldn't make use of Gain High Ground, because I destroyed those that could reach my dragons. The AE dropped, and Nielfhiem flew adjacent to two of them, and took out both with 4 skulls, along with a 6 defense GG. Neilf and Zel got away with no damage, though only 2 GSs stayed alive.

Battle 3: Snowfire Lizards Vs. jschild's Green Sting On Failed Negotiations.
Another wipeout. jschild made two major blunders that cost him the game. He placed his first order markers on Charos instead of GSs. In trying to make up for it, he passed up Neilfheim to engage Zelrig, and took 5 wounds in two turns for passing, and Neilf chasing him down. When engaged to Zelrig, he got pummelled by the GCs and Majestic Flames in three turns.
I then flew Zelrig up to his start zone in two turns, and Flamed 5 Stingers at once, and the next turn 4 GSs. The game was basically over then.

Battle 4: Viper Leogs Vs. jschild's son's Iron Josh On Failed Negotiations.
Ahh, again I felt sorry for beating the little guy, But he was an extremely good sport; he didn't mind he was losing so long he could play. But he did have a short attention span.
He placed his Hydras on the center zone, and I place Romans. I cut off two heads of one in one turn, then two turns later finished that guy off.
Vipers circumnavigated the road and came at Hydras from boths sides. Iron man flew up, but was surrounded by Vipers and destroyed in one turn. Onatashi and Isamu were quickly mowed down by Vipers and Romans, respectively.

Battle 5: Viper Legos Vs Necroblade's A Guy Richie Movie on UnMarvelous.
Another marvelous win for me. I was for sure that I would lose against the 6 defense GGs. But my Vipers continued to mow through there defenses a turn before they would die by the survivors. The backup GGs slowly came forward, blocking both sides of the map. The Romans came behind to help clean up the GGs, and surrounded the Warden to finish the game.

Battle 6: Viper Legos Vs jschild's Capt. Valiant on UnMarvelous.
This was the only match I lost. My B and C units were up against 3 types of A units: Captian America, the Mass., and Knights of Weston. We both put up very good fights.
As expected, the Knights were hacking down my Vipers. But for every two or three knights downed, a Knight went down as well. It was a stalemate through the first half of the match. Then Capt. America came up and it was nearly over for me. Morgrimm with Romans came and slowly whittled down the Knights and Capt. America. But I was down to two squads Vipers, one Squad Romans, half-life Morgrimm, and Mittens. And 3/4ths of jschild's army remained.
We fought back and forth with Knights vs Vipers/Romans, and in the end it was Morgrimm, Mittens, and one Roman, and None of the Mass had moved. In the end, Mittens was by himself against 7 Mass, and lost. This was one of the best matches, for it was the most suspenseful.

Thank you for coming, Necroblade, DecietfulBeauty, jschild, and jschild's son!

Why did you have to say jschilds' son. It's so much more fun to say jschilds' child.

I thought about it doing it again, but I thought I did it enough to jschild on the Tourney Thread.

But you are right rednax it's funny to read it.

Yeah, you'll notice how often you cut through my 6 defense like a hot knife through butter...you're good, but luck was definitely on your side in both our games. Maybe next time.

Yes, maybe next time you'll beat me...
And more skill will be involved in our next battle, instead of the dice favoring me. I love close battles.

Very well, StW! I hope you are serious that you'll come! I'd like to play you, since most likely you have another playing style than I know of (with all of your customs).

If you do, I'll let you pay a special (lower) entry cost, since you'll have a long way to drive.
