There is Only War 2012 – An Epic Armageddon Tournament

I ran this Epic Armageddon tournament on Sunday the 8th of July 2012.

We had 12 entrants (including me as the ringer player). 3 games at 3000pts with 2hrs and 15 mins for each game. Here is the Players pack for the event.

A BIG thanks to Aaron, Alistair, Cam, Chris, Duro, Georg, Jack, Jason, John, Nick and Olly. That’s 2 more players than we had last year and 3 of last year’s entrants were unable to play this year. Epic is growing here in Perth, Western Australia!

Also, a REALLY BIG thanks to Heather and Ratt for all their help with the paperwork and judging!
