N&T Talvisota tournament overview

Final update from last weekends tournament, this time with some overview shots from other Flames of War tables and from the other game systems as well.

First some shots from other Flames of War games during the day.





There was one epic Berlin themed Flames of War army which had every single base individually sculpted with loads of extra details put in. In addition to that a lot of the vehicles had amazing added details like all the winches etc. on the recovery vehicle. He ended up second in the "Best Army" painting contest only losing out with one vote to the eventual winner. More work from him can be seen at his new blog Achtung Painter









The small Infinity tournament had some pretty epic tables set up. Our club has a small, but extremely active group of players playing Infinity and they've accumulated a lot of terrain with only a small portion being shown here.






Warhammer Fantasy saw some quite nice conversions and stand in miniatures. Especially the flying shark which counted as a Skull Cannon was a funny idea. There was also a great looking Chaos Dwarf army with a massive mechanical bull.






Finally the entries for the best painted army competition. One army was selected from each game system for a final voting round. As mentioned earlier the voting was very tight with the fabulous Fantasy Battle Lizardman army edging the prize with only one vote compared to the Flames of War company. The  Flames of War army ended up getting a lot more votes than there were actual FoW players so it says quite a bit about it the work as there is some tendency always to vote an entry from your own game system :) Still the Lizardman army deserved the win. I'd guess it was a very nice trophy for the winner who had come all the way from St. Petersburg in Russia to take part in the tournament.

    1. It truly is. Too bad it didn't take the first place! But I guess with Warhammer being the biggest game in the tournament by far it's always gonna get some extra votes
