Blood in the Sun Recap Part Deux

I went into BitS hoping to be in the top half at the end of the day.  I came in 24th out of 50 players overall, so that is cutting it a bit close for my taste.  But overall I'm still pleased with the result.  On the battle points side, which accounted for ~ 50% of total score, I sort of reaped what I sowed scoring only 47 points.  I simply didn't put in the practice time needed with the list to have a better understanding of each units role.  It turned out to burn me as this tournament had lots of seasoned generals from the Midwest, which meant that none of the games were a cake walk.  I will still take a morale victory out of going 3-2!
On the soft score front I was really happy with the results.  My comp score was a 31 out of 35.  Realistically, it probably could have been a little lower considering the amount of archers I took and the toughness of the War Spinx.  For sportsmanship I netted 31 out of 35.  It's a fine score considering I wasn't overly enthusiastic when I was getting my s$%$ pushed in.  The only thing that burns me is that Domus netted a perfect 35 and I will never hear the end of it.  At least I got to see first hand the "Domus Factor" in the flesh!  For paint I scored a 40.  That is a little higher than I was expecting considering that I ended up fielding a few older units that need to be replaced.  Fortunately, the theme and the better painted units pulled me through.  Though I swear I had to repair the necropolis knights like 4 or 5 times over the weekend the weekend!  I'm really excited for what the future holds for next tournament since I will have all new units painted up and a much nicer display board to better convey the jungle theme.
Big thanks the Grant, Chris, Steve and the rest of the tourney crew that put on a great event.  Fingers crossed that next year I will get to attend both BitS and the Buckeye Battles!  Finally I want to give a big shout out to all the cool players that I met over the weekend.  Now I just need to shake the HPB Virus I came home with!

You reap what you sow there buddy! Next time you will think twice about heckling a mate about his scores as it WILL definitely come back to haunt you.

All kidding aside, thanks for making the drive up and driving to Chi-town. I had a great weekend a big part of that!

Glad you got to see my magic in action! :-)
