Bushido 42 Rice Tournament 18/03/2017

Many thanks to all who attended our (3rd?) annual Bushido Tournament. Great to see the club represented well, host the returning Bromley crew (always a pleasure), and welcome some new attendees from as near as Eastleigh and as far as Ramsgate! Special thanks to those who helped with setup and tidying up afterwards, to Adam for his fancy Excel spreadsheet, and to Andrew for the loan of his boards. His lakeside board is outstanding:

A great day all round. Congratulations to the winners. My apologies to Luke and Craig for prematurely writing on the 3rd place certificate – I hadn’t realised how close the competition for bronze would be! Many ties for places throughout the table, too.

I understand Adam is writing up a battle report or four over on the official Bushido forums and I’ll be editing together a video of the final-round battle for first place in the next few days.

I’d be grateful if everyone could send me any rules questions they remember coming up so that I can check my ruling with Master Enos and perhaps add them to the next errata. I know he’s also particularly interested in hearing reports of the KKZ Hail of Steel spam, to judge whether he needs to address it in a future rules update.

Adam, Tom and I are looking forward to attending the Grand Masters tournament at the UK Games Expo on the 2nd of June. I know Ole and James are hoping to come, and I hope more of you can join us. Should be a great weekend. After that, we look forward to another event in Bromley and a first one in Kent. Perhaps even a second event at Solent Wargamers Club.

Podium & Best Painted

Congratulations to James for winning best painted. Well deserved!
