23-10-2011 Games Corps Tournament.

I have a big problem with sleep, my work as an illustrator means that i will get myself working until very late, thus usually i get up late on weekends, the weekend of 22-23 of October - that included another tournament on the Games Corps store in Halandri was no exception.

I ended up waking late and after another hour of traveling to the tournament i found ten warhammer 40k players already on the second round of the event, i was pleased also to find Dimitris, the owner of the Avalon shop that sadly closed some time ago, lets see what Dimitris had to say about the Avalon and his hobby experience and we will start with the tournament right after that with the tournament.

Team Greece ETC 2012

The Invulnerable has taken a request from ETC team Greece members to post the following call for the next team to go to the European Team Championship, since i am very interested in the participation of our team on this tournament i am more than happy to relay their message.

Call for ETC 2012 Team Greece.

The European Team Championship 2012 will be held the following August in Poland.  

Greece will take part this year too with a 40k team, the first step for gathering a team is to know how many are interested and can participate. If you are interested please sign up.

The participants must have the following prerequisites:
1) Must know good or excellent English, this is very important for communication. 

2) They must do a responsible sign up, we cant afford for a player to drop out from the team at the last moment, this includes the coverage of the expenses, tickets and hotel rooms must be booked until March. 

3) They must be active players that participate in recognized tournaments that post their results in public, For the final selection of the team a ranking system will be used that will consider the player's results in the tournaments he participated.

Whoever is interested may communicate with an email on:

8-10-2011, taking the train to Kifisia.

Someone could say that the blog so far haven't visited every single place where a tournament in Greece can be held, this is true as in its short life of 4-5 months the Invulnerable mostly has covered events in the Fantasy shops of Kalithea and Victoria and the Games Corps in Halandi that started its activity right on the same month as this blog has gone online.

Mostly this was the reason (to start covering tournaments somewhere else too) why i choose to take the train to the north part of our city all the way to Kifisia in a boring 47 minuets (counted with stopwatch) journey to reach the shop in time.

Another reason for going to the tournament was that i was planning to play in this tournament too, packaging your army and photographic equipment can be tricky and the SLR camera got cramped together with the Stormraven and the infantry with the IC recorder, i run out of space (and hands) for the video camera and the tripod so i couldn't record any video for this tournament (and you were cooking popcorn already huh?).

Someone told me a day before that i should bring my army too in case not too many players were to come and i was actually waiting for quite a few gamers to arrive too because of the distance the shop has to the city center, when i arrived on the mall where the Fantasy Shop is i found only the Overmind, Takis Valeontis who would be also the Judge for the tournament was there.

1-10-2011 Back to Victoria

It was nice getting back to Fantasy Shop Victoria for a tournament, it isn't just the fact that i have connected as a player the meaning of Warhammer 40.000 with the Fantasy shop in Victoria (we old players know why this place is important to the hobby) but it is also the fact that many of my old time wh40k friends are still there, including the hideous Tyranid-thing that so far masks itself as a human being and organizer of many tournaments, i am speaking about Takis Valeontis if you haven't guessed already - the Overmind.

This time the Fantasy shop announced the start of a ranking system for the players that take part in their tournaments, the players will keep their scores from every tournament that they will participate in and we will have a more general view of the players level and ability, the Invulnerable blog will follow closely the scores as they will be posted on a separate page on the blog that can be found here:

With all that in mind i woke up quite late to get to the tournament, the first thing i did was call the Overmind and ask him to what round they were still in, he answered that the players were just finishing the first round and to my question of how many players were there the answer were twelve, i quickly grabbed my SLR and the video camera and headed as quickly as i could to the tournament!.

25-09-2011 Independent club tournament, part three.

The last round of the tournament started and the place was half full of players since almost everyone went outside for a snack, drink, burger or all three of that. A little bit afterwards we got back into the hotel and for the one last round that would reveal the best player in both gaming and sportsmanship.

The third mission was Annihilation and the deployment was Spearhead, with the armies deploying with their flanks covered by the edges of the battlefield players were able to defend their weaker units better and bring forward their more tough units.

So lets see the pairs on the third round.
