|The fantastic participation game presented by Cross Swords gaming club.|
After writing and submitting my 1000pt Army list a few weeks ago, I tried it out against Lawrence's Skaven and proceeded to lose at every opportunity, I wasn't filled with confidence. We decided to take a trip to the Cross Swords gaming club to meet a few other gamers from the area and so that I'd recognise a few faces at the tournament. Everyone at the club was friendly and we had a great night, we'll definately be going back for some more.

Of all those games, I only won one; by crushing my opponents Chaos Sorcerer General in the first turn of the game with my Rocklobber (it was the Blood and Glory Scenario, so I instantly won!). I’d had the first turn so my opponent didn’t even get a turn. He didn’t look mightly impressed, but I got him a cup of tea, and we chalked it up to experience. We wrote up our scores and then carried on the game as if it was a normal pitched battle. Which he proceeded to win.

|This castle was huge! Constructed from Hirst Arts blocks, it must have taken months to complete.|
Oh, just in case you were wondering, I came came 23rd out of 24 players. Better than I expected.
