NZTC 2015 Photos and Winners

Warhammer Fantasy Battles New Zealand Team Championships 2014

The Kapiti Wargames Club fielded 2 teams: Legion of Doom and Pants Off!

Day 1: Gloves off, or was it shirts of and pants off?
After a brief kerfuffle to find a replacement player at no 99 when Rex took ill, Team Legion of Doom (LoD) arrived to take on the big guns of the NZ Warhammer world.

Roundly tipped to take the wooden spoon, as we had come close to in the preceding years, we proceeded to do battle.

Many thanks to Lockie Reid who stood in for the incapacitated Rex, ably fielding his Wood Elf army!
Hope you're feeling better, Rex! You missed a great tournament!

Not much time to do a write-up of my experience or the event (I will do it next week)
I am now hurriedly packing to go off on a school camp at the crack of sparrows tomorrow...

So, this is really not much more than a photo-dump.

May thanks to Pete and Tim for a fantastic event!

And no, we (LoD) did not take the wooden spoon either!

For full results check The Fields of Blood.

Pete and Tim, feel free to right-click and use my photos for your blogs

Very relieved that the Wooden Spoon passed Team Legion of Doom by (again)!
You will notice that it is a slotted wooden spoon...
 To represent all those attacks allowed to come through!


  1. Thanks Herman, nice set of photos from a great weekend. You guys were a real pleasure to play once again.

    That Ironblaster was definitely in hard cover. I hit it 5 times I think with cannon and grudge throwers, for a total of 2 wounds..... Luc had to blow it up for me with a misfire, because I just couldn't hurt it.

  2. You were a wonderful opponent, Herman! Thank you for the game and the photos. I hope we get to play each other again :)
