The first Leg of the 2018 GBnUIT HOTT Tournament "Land of Giants" has been played the Bakewell/Derbyshire Leg, hosted by Simon Wilson. Five players participated and from the pictures it sure looks like they had a great time! And there are some really VERY creative armies too (which is a favorite part of the tournament for me seeing all the creativity everyone comes up with). Their armies were Sir Francis drake and the Spanish Armadillo, Mythical Greek, Orcs, Reptilian and Fish'n'pips.

A picture of the attendees. Simon advised that Tim Sharrock Sir Francis Drake and the Spanish Armadillo won the tournament Congratulations Tim, and to all for taking part.

They ran a four round tournament so everyone had a chance to play everyone, and then a fifth round where they had to use someone else's army. So not only creative armies, but a delightfully creative approach.

Here are the armies.

Some pretty tense looking faces here! But all friends in the end!

I have to commend Simon for a truly great Leg of the tournament (his first), and extend special thanks to Mark Johnson for opening his home for the tournament and to Tim Sharrock for the really excellent photos. Gentlemen all, a job well done!

Couldn't have had a better kick off to this year's tournament!!! There will be more GBnUIT reports coming in the near future as there are plenty of Legs still to be played.

Terry
