I played in an RTT last Saturday and while I did horribly, in part because I was not expecting full maelstrom missions, and in part due to poor generalship, I came home with a prize for best painted model and new bloodthirster model to assemble and paint. I spent this past week getting ready for the Contest of Champions 1850 ITC event yesterday, July 25th. I had 3 great games, and played the final game on table #1 against Mr. Paul McKelvey. We had a tough fought 5 round game which resulted in a tie and neither of us winning the event. However, I won both the Player’s Choice/Best Painted and Best Sportsmanship awards. Here are the bulk of the models I took with me.
