Lone Wolf GT 2016 Report
On a "Didn't I do this last month?" note, here's a quick photo dump of the awesome armies that were at the Lone Wolf GT, the first Kings of War GT in Texas. Lots of images after Chuck Gavlak waves us into the jump...
First off, apologies if your name isn't on your army; not everyone labeled theirs, and six weeks later, I can't remember anything!
An action shot of my Harpies getting charged by Molochs in game 1.
My Tribal Warriors unit gets front and flank charged by Tortured souls, but managed to get the double-1s I needed in game 1! They were able to countercharge and pop the Tortured Souls in their front, but I lost the game badly.
Richard Vogt's Empire of Dust. I dropped a game to him after making a bad tactical decision.
