So last week from Tuesday 4th until Friday the 7th I was in Prague! And I had a blast! Was a great experience for me! Playing people from all around, North Ireland, Germany, England and Belgium.

Because for most of the folks it was ESC next day! I was bloody nervous... ESC this year can be described as something chaotic... we had sign in when we arrived, then half hour past first game we had to sign in again on the computer, then the grudge matches where signed in... It was 11h when we could start our game...
So what did we do in the mean time? Take some pictures of awesome armies!
|Orks as Tau|
|A completey Games Workshop converted Star Wars "Eldar" Army!|
|All the folks|
|T Shirts where exchanged|
|Wolves and stuff|
|Flying Grey Knights|
|Fallen Dark Angels!|
First battle I faced John Stowe! I stepped in on 6 Nations Cup for John because he couldn’t make it. And then he grudged me for the ESC! He played a Khorne Daemonkin list with 4 maulerfiends and 2 helldrakes, a bunch of doggies and some cultists + bloodletters. So all in the list looked fine. Just had to watch those maulerfiends with S10… (In the end they instant death 2 dudes of mine)
It was a great game. Whiskey was drunk, pictures where taking, curses where made,… I took 2 points in this game because last turn John decided to save all his saves!
|Shot Glass from North Ireland! Thanks again John!|
Last and final battle! I need to take some points. Because otherwise I had to buy drinks for all the ESC players. I faced Japser, which I normally play against, in the last round. Because things didn't matter we didn't ask the judges so swap us around. Since other player from the same team also played each other. It’s a swiss round so this would be bound to happen sometimes. Jasper played orks and had a big nasty unit of Ork Nobz, which scared me a little bit and a big bunch of cannons with him. So I had no idea what to do exactly. We played relaxed and had some beers. In the end I won 19-1. Should have been 20-0 if we didn’t rewind something. Didn’t matter like I said.
Also have new army ideas in my head… sadly they have to wait. The house is top priority for now. I hope to destroy the bathroom and kitchen before next weekend! Should be doable…
|Time to work!|
