"For the Sword!" Tournament: Introduction
On Sunday, November 12 2000, my pal Patrick Eibel and I went to Area 31, a gaming store in Frederick, Maryland, for a tournament called "For the Sword!" Our friend Paul Hill would be running the tournament (read his thoughts on that). What made this tournament unusual was the prize: a steel sword, purchased earlier this year at the Maryland Renaissance Festival just for the occasion. All the other store tournaments Iíve been to have offered 40K merchandise for prizes, which is more practical, but not nearly as cool! 

Set-Up
Each player had a maximum of 1500 points using the Standard Missions Force Organization chart. Paul had told all of us that we would be playing one of the Standard Missions, to be determined randomly right before the event started.

Each participant would play four games with the same mission each time: it just turned out that the mission was "Recon," which Iím familiar with. In addition, each battle was assumed to be fought at dawn, so that during the first turn of every game, the Night Fighting rules would be used. 

In addition to the winner of the most battles taking home the sword, other people could win store prizes for painting and army composition. 

Who was there?
The event drew a good mix of new and veteran gamers with diverse armies.

In creating our armies for the tournament, I went with a "shooty" approach, while Pat chose an "assault" approach. Both were very successful. Follow the links below to find out what happened.
