Singapore Wins Big at Legio Warhammer Tournament
Legio Malaysia's inaugural Warhammer tournament featured 14 players, 9 of which made a hobby pilgrimage from Singapore for the event. Armies clashed, dice were chucked, and the howls of the vanquished echoed through the hall over three rounds of tough competition. When the dust settled and the points were added up, "Team Singapore" acheived a tournament-wide "Massacre" result by taking all of the trophies!
Overall Winner: Justin Phua
Best Sportsman: G1
Best Appearance: Lee Kok Foong
Sincerest congratulations go out to the winners for their well deserved victories, as well as all of the competitors who came out yesterday to play. I think this tournament could be a great catalyst for more "inter-nation" rivalry, as well as a resurgence of interest in Legio Malaysia for the Warhammer hobby.
Call me biased, but don't let the final results fool you. The Malaysian players showed up to play, and from what I saw there were a lot of tight games. I also must mention that Iskazri pulled off another pre-tournament hobby "All Nighter", painting like a maniac to get his army up to snuff. In fact, take a look at the Appearance scores, and you'll see that Iskazri was tied for second! Is, I take my hat off to you! :)
The complete results are posted below- check 'em out!
Personally, I loved seeing all that Warhammer action going down yesterday, and I think this is only the beginning. I spoke with several of the Singapore team members, and we all agreed that some sort of "Singapore/Malaysia Invitational" needs to get organized and run every year. This event would not only feature Warhammer, but also 40K and even Flames of War. What do you guys think? Post and discuss!
