The ninjas are there to distract you from the fact that I could'nt find a funny picture of Warhammer players.
Wow!!! I'm spent. In all we had 26 people show and a handful of yugioh players. lol.

I would just like to say this was hands down one of the best tourneys I've ever hosted. Oh wait, it was my first. lol. We had a lot of amazing players at this tourney and many shenanigans ensued. Tbh, we had a run on free pizza because some college guys had to eat more than the allotted two I yelled out three times "KEEP IT TO TWO GUYS!!!" and mind you I'm a teacher and my voice was mighty. lol.
Highlights: 3 Muncie guys had to be 30 mins late, so we all consistently made fun of them throughout the day for their silliness and fail of a GPS.
To start: 1.You will notice two guys who have never been in a tourney and they performed admirably. First is Ryan H. He is 12 guys, and this kid was the one who had the lit space marines army. He won best painted army and went home with an 8th place win. If he keeps with it, I have to say Ryan will not only be one of the top painters in the country but a fantastic player at that. Its great to see a kid just start to know what to do.
2.This brings me to "DA'KOMMISORK" Will B. He was the only Kokomo player to place in the top 12 and might I say against such tough stock, I was very glad to see him do this. Will ran a very battlewagon heavy army with shoota boys, big meks, burnas out the wazzoo and those crazy nob biker wound allocators. lol. Will has been playing for about 3 months guys. This is one I will say IS GOING TO BE a force to be reckoned with in the coming years. Not because he plays Orks but because his tactics and list building are spot on. I love it when a new player starts out asking me for advice on orks and I find myself 2 months later asking him back for advice. Will should be at the Hive Fleet Indy tourney in may with me, so it should be fun.
3. Things I saw: Spag and Scottydont had to be the ones who pulled each other in the 3rd round game. lol. All the while, Dodger3 just seemed to pull chaos space marines like it was candy.
Battles of note: Game 1: Scottydont plays Teng. Scotty won this game, and Teng is very new to the game, but as I walked by Scott says, "this is one of 3 times I've ever had to pull Vulkan back."
my response: He only has 7 kill points. Did I mention I helped him write that list.
Scotts response: a curt look and laughs ensued later.
Rionnay vs spags space wolves as played by Scotts son while Spag played his new GK. Then ten minutes later pulling Spag for the final game. lol. classic win guys.
Edges guard vs. Foodies nids: a game i really wanted to see. The two exchanged quite a few tough battles and Edge brought out the win in the end.
In the end guys, there were so many amazing battles going on it just turned out great. Look for a future post for the next Gamer DMZ tourney in june.
Side note: anyone who wants to post their own favorite moments of the day please feel free and post away.

Good ol' Rionnay decided to flip off the TO. Good thing he pulled Spag in the last round. Karma is amazing like that.
Great Looking guy! Running from all those terminators!!! Ahhh!
