The Glasgow leg of the 2015 Good, Bad and Ugly Hordes of the Things tournament is almost upon us. It takes place on Tuesday 3rd November in Partick Burgh Halls, Partick, Glasgow and we're starting about 6pm with a 6:30pm target for the first game. There will be three rounds and a time limit of 45 minutes per game.

The theme of this year's tournament is Armies of myth and legend, although it is not mandatory to enter a themed army. There will be prizes awarded on the night plus the high scorers across the whole international tournament will win prizes. Themed armies will go forward to be voted on by the on-line HOTT community with a prize for the one voted as best.

All are welcome to take part. We are using HOTT version 2.1 and 40mm base frontage (figure scale is flexible) and armies must be a legitimate 24AP HOTT army. There will be a few loan armies available for anyone who wants to play but doesn't have an army.

Drop me a message here if you have any questions.

Tomorrow the Glasgow, Scotland Leg of the GBnU plays. his will be the third Leg with Sydney, Australia, and Staines, England having already played their Legs.

Euan Caldwell will be coordinating this Leg as he did last year, so it should be a great event and I am looking forward to some good coverage afterwards.

Next after Glasgow will be The Republic of Texas on the 7th and Atlanta on the 8th.

Stay tuned…..

The Midwest leg is coming up on November 14, in Dexter/Ann Arbor Michigan. 16 players have committed to play. We will have a seniors and juniors division as there are six teenagers signed up. They are all pretty good players and I think it best to separate them so as not to embarrass the adults.

15 players took part in the Glasgow leg of GBnU 2015 on Tuesday evening, with the organiser stepping in to play as well to make it an even number of players. We had three complete novices and a few once or twice a year players alongside the more experienced players.

Three rounds were played however the results have still to be announced as we ran out of time to present the prizes at the end of the evening.

The results will be announced and presentation will take place next Tuesday.

The armies and players (in no particular order) were:

Greek Epic : Good– Gordon MacPherson
Elves: Good – Stuart Hammond
Egyptian Mythological: Good – Malcolm T Robbie
ACW Union Army: Good – Graham Short
Cu Chulain: Good – Luis De La Calle
Crusaders : Good – Jonny Alcorn
Robin Hood: Good – Peter Clark
Freedom Fighting Flying Carpets: Good – Paul Dowsland
Dem Bones, Skeletons from Hell: Bad – Shona MacPherson
Arabian Knights: Bad – Mark Prentice
Aztecalypto: Bad – Mark Grindley
Homeric Greek: Bad – Mike Lillie
Undead: Bad – David Martin
Pictish Mythology: Ugly – Euan Caldwell
Norse Myth: Ugly – Gus Caldwell
Mongols: Ugly – Michael Harker

Results, army lists and pictures to follow.

Great list of armies. Nice turn out. Was this done as part of a regular club night or a special event?

I have not seen armies listed as Ugly in other Legs, did you just count these as Bad in the matches?

Eoghan Mor08 Nov 2015 3:42 p.m. PST

A combination of both. Tuesday is the regular weekly club meeting night for the Phoenix Wargames Club in Glasgow, but we try to run some sort of special event or multi-player game on the first Tuesday of each month. This month it was GBnU with a mixture of members and guests taking part.

Classifying armies as Ugly, rather than Good or Bad, was just a bit of fun – it is in the title of the tournament after all – for armies that could be either, depending on your interpretation. I guess that could be said about a few of the others as well.
