It's our first Tournament since the Nationals (50 man yearly tournament) and it's a good one! We have a full house of 16 players, luckily for us 4 players dropped out including the current champion Sonny otherwise we would have really been struggling for space.
Next time we will have 2 extra tables built just in case more people turn up.
For those people interested Blood And Oil is our quarterly Warmachine and Hordes Steamroller tournament. This month's event is a 50 point one as lots of people are gearing up for the Masters (Where Gifts For Geeks will have a stall) and the Student Masters.
