Mini-Arcon was a lot of fun! We were only six players, a lot of the players in the area are in their exam periods so they could not come, but that did not affect the atmosphere. I took pictures of each force, and put them up here.
Here's my army! Check my pre-Mini-Arcon (b)log for the complete list. I'm pretty happy with how it turned out!
Mikkel's Minas Tirith army. This was the only opponent I didn't play in the tournament. He had both brothers, Boromir and Faramir. Faramir, Damrod and a couple of other rangers had their heads/hoods resculpted. A very themey/fluffy looking army, but might not have been the most competitive and placed last.
Nils' Wood Elf and Ithilien alliance! 3 plus shoot, 6's to hit them with bow fire because of Galadriel and woodland creature on everyone! Fifth place for Nils.
Torgeirs Feifdom army. Prince Imrahil and his retinue. His knights hit hard! He placed third in the tournament. We had the same amount of tournament points, but he had 6 more tie-breaker points, so I placed fourth.
Sebastians great looking elves, his painting won best painted. The models had beatuifully painted faces, and the eyes looked great. The capes and other cloth was nicely blended as well. The whole force looked really good and unified! He also got second place in the tournament.
Andreas' Black Guard! His force was small, but it had a lot of tricks and can give as much damage as it could take. Andreas won the tournament and was one point away from the same score as Sebastian in the painting competition. The mouths of the Black Guard looked great. The black shading on all the capes and the black speech writing on the Shadow Lord was impressive. Andreas' is a great player and he's been playing the game for a long time. He also leads the Spillforeningen The Fellowship here in Oslo, and makes a lot of content on the YouTube channel of the club. And by the looks of it he painted up the army in a week. Check out his hobby vlog here!
Take a look at this! Their heads looks very similar! Looks like Andreas' Uruks killed of Cirion's twin, and put his head on a stick. And Andreas thaught me how to paint the blond hair, so it looks quiet similar!
Now I just need to figure out what to play at the Norwegian Masters/NM in January next year. I'm thinking along the lines of what I played with a white robed old man added!
I hope you have enjoyed the posts, hope to see you next time!
