For this event you start with a legal "rookie" team. Before game 1 you get 80k to spend on skills, I went with multiple block and piling on for my mummies, guard on a wight and sure hands on a ghoul. I was very happy with these selections.
Day 1 (bad day)
Game 1 vs. Chris E (Ogres) 3-0 win
After game 1 Eric the organizer randomly determined everyone got 40k to use for their team. At this point I wasn't sure who I would be playing, so I opted for wrestle and tackle on each of my unskilled ghouls. This turned out to be a mistake, as I ended up playing dwarves twice - tackle being useless and my wrestle ghoul ended up off the pitch quite early in both games! Thinking back I should've listened to Chris my first opponent and put wrestle on one of my zombies. It also meant my other wight was unskilled for a majority of the tournament.

|was looking pretty good here - I overextended myself pretty soon after!|
After game 3 Eric again randomly determined an additional 70k to spend on your team. I gave block to my multiple block mummy and both mighty blow/piling on to my unskilled wight. I was reasonably happy with these selections.
Day 2 (good day)
Game 4 vs. Alex W (Orcs) 1-0 win
Game 5 vs. Mark H. (Chaos Dwarves) 2-2 draw
So overall I am not too disappointed with my results. In the top half of the players has become pretty standard for me, and I think it comes down to scoring - often just a push by my opponent results in me failing to score. It's tough when I am forced to receive as I find it difficult to manage both causing casualties and scoring, if I can improve at scoring a little bit I think it will go a long way to making me better overall with the team. I can't feel too aggrieved at losing out on Most Casualties as I spent the whole tournament trying to break AV9 and still came out 2nd!
