Up until now I’ve exclusively been painting a bunch of Blindwater stuff here on Handcannon. My primary reason for being here though is to provide you with some tournament coverage from some european events. I like to travel around with my metal men and intend to go to both german and austrian events later in the summer and autumn. I like to take a lot of pictures and write a battlereport, but I tend to keep it rather humorous so don’t expect any deep analysis of the games I play.
Anyway, after two months of almost constant painting the day had finally come to bring a backpack full of hungry gatormen over the North Sea for a weekend of gaming in the European Team Championships. The event was being held at Maelstrom Games’ own venue the Eye of the Storm located in scenic Mansfield, England. Not too far from Sherwood Forest.
I was fortunate enough to have a designated left-handed driver on my team so the trip north from Gatwick airport went without a hitch. Formerly-briton-now-swede John handled the driving like a champ while I had a silent freakout every time we went into a roundabout.
