South Wales Team Tournament – the results!

Well, we’ve had a rest, taken a few days with our feet up, a few rounds in the sauna, and a jolly good cup of tea and a sit down. I have to say, running the thing is a LOT more work than playing in it. I’m almost glad we didn’t have to field a team in the end 😉

We had some truly lovely trophies commissioned, and having put half the profits straight back into the pot, there were some real almost-cash voucher prizes on offer. Real almost cash!

Going to my first ever ITC style event……..

If you go down to the shed today….

So, the Christmas season is over and now we can back into the steady routine of regular wargaming again (😉).

One of the ‘shedders’ suggested we attend an ITC style event (run by the Vale renegades, held at Firestorm games in Cardiff) in Feb.

Now I’ll be the first to admit that this style of event has never really appealed to me. It always seems to be about power gaming with the most optimised lists conceivable.
