|Just...try to relax...|
Discussions about the Team Tournament could take several blog posts to cover. I'll spare you that, or you could just look back through the archives. Suffice it to say that it takes luck to even get in to this very popular event, and a great deal of money and time to not embarrass yourself when you see the titans of industry who will inevitably win. These are the teams who have spent thousands of dollars and man hours to put together truly masterful works of art. Average participants? Don't hold your breath. This event truly rewards those who go above and beyond. It's actually worth coming to the event, just to see the display bases the teams put together.
Combat patrol has never really been my thing, but others have enjoyed it. I have trouble making a 1000 point 40k army, so 400 points really is an exercise in futility for me. To each his own, I'm glad some of the other members have had fun with it.
This will be the third year for the 40k Friendly Tournament. I had some friends participate in '12, and they gushed about how awesome it was. Laid back, thematic lists, a complete lack of douchebaggery, it received rave reviews. I did not bring Team Snake Eyes to the Team Tournament in '13 because I was a little burned out from that hectic experience and wanted something a little more relaxed. The Friendly was my choice. Three of us came up last year (myself, Chambers, & Grenn Dal) and although I came in dead-ass-last place (it's a real thing, look it up) it was a good time. After hearing the staff repeatedly say they would disallow hard lists, I was a little shocked at some of the things we saw last year "What do you mean my drop Wolves list with four Rune Priests with Jaws isn't friendly?" Chambers and I are a little worried about what we'll see this year.

|This thing is about 5' high and is likely someone's display board. These people do not mess around...|
|Iron Hands charity raffle army, there are better pics out there on the internet, and they are worth seeing.|
