London Warmaster Day
he first London Warmaster Tournament was held in Ponders End Uniting Church Hall on the 21th of July (2001).
Richard Jones organised the event with help of Shaun and the PEWC club members. 14 players took part, making the LWD the biggest independent (from GW/Fanatic) Warmaster event. The organisation was very good and everybody seemed to have enjoyed the day. As far as I could see all games were conducted in the same friendly and relaxed manner which seems to be a trademark of Warmaster players.
I assume that by the time you read this, Richard will have put some additional photographs and comments on his web site.
His "guests" would have to do so with 1500 points armies and no further limitations given.
The players were divided into 4 teams of players that had played each other often. This is a nice touch because you automatically play against gamers "new" to you. With 3 players per team, two players were left floating.
There were awards given for Best Team, Best General, Best Painting and Best Overall.
All battles were standard battles setting up 80 cm afar, alternating setup of units. But two tables had special rules one being the fight about two narrow bridges.
My army list
The army list I chose is quite typical for what I use nowadays. About 50% infantry and artillery and 50% cavalry and chariots. On 1500 points I restrain from using flyers or monsters.
I spared the points for an Hero and left home only with General and Wizard, but as a give in, I took an Orb of Majesty.
The army consisted of
Erwin Jackson. There were some nice looking armies, but none as nice as Erwin's beautiful High Elves. Runner up were Richard Jones' Bretonnians.
I will add the rest of the ranking as soon as I get the info.
Christian Burnett, the only player who won all 4 games.
Chris' Kislevites (he played Chaos, but wanted to show the Ks off)
James' Chaos painted by Steven Merier
Erwin's High Elves
Wayne's Orcs and Goblins
