This tournament was really frustrating for me. With the amount to spend I chose to bring the deathroller just because 4 rerolls felt like overkill and I was concerned other rosters could have more "oomph" on the pitch than me. The deathroller failed spectacularly in 4/5 games, and while taking nothing away from my opponents who all played in the range of "decent" to "very well", I could not even keep track of the number of block turnovers I suffered. Almost all but one or two single die blocks were skulls, and I think I averaged 2 double skulls a game across the 5 games. Perhaps it was karma for all the great luck I had when I won the Warpstone Cup - first tournament I brought these guys to. Which sucks, but I'll still take the tournament win at this cost - lol ;)

Sorry no photo for this game. Pretty back and forth but all I can really remember is his damn assassin kept stabbing my dwarves successfully. What the hell!
After game three, we held a skills draft. I was less prepared for this than I was in previous years, and I think the biggest mistake was taking a +ST boost, which I gave to my runner. It rarely influenced the game enough - probably taking guard would have been better.

Yeesh no photo for this game either - what gives Alex? This match was a total shoving contest. Oh and Colin fouled the crap out of me with his sneaky git - never getting kicked out (to be fair he never managed more than a stun, but still!)
Game 5 vs. Alex (Norse) 2-1 loss
