Gamescrape, the 5th - a Steamroller 2013 Tournament Report
We're back with another Warmachine/Hordes tournament report. This one was the 5th Gamescrape, though this time it was couched as a Warmachine only tournament. The idea was to give out Warmachine faction coins (in addition to Gamescape gift certificates for the top 3) rather than the usual 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place ones. With Retribution of Scyrah being his faction of choice, Alex Kosma went undefeated to strongly secure 1st place. Taking 2nd was the winner of the previous Gamescrape, Dan Christensen (aka Brian D, aka Squinty McQuiet) fielding Khador and Alex's brother, Nick Kosma, took 3rd with his Protectorate of Menoth. While Alex, Dan and Nick won best Retribution, Khador and Protectorate by default, it was Tyler Canales who took best Cygnar, Eric Lin who took best Cryx and Brenden Clark who took best (on account of being the only) Mercenaries. While the theme of the event was ideally to be entirely Warmachine, no one who wanted to play was to be turned away, thus there were a couple of Hordes players taking part as well; Patrick playing Legion of Everblight and Daniel with his Thornfall Alliance. Considering the size of the gaming area in Gamescape, there was a fine turn out and we hope to have another tournament before the end of summer. Below are some nice pics of the days action.
