Great work!

I see a clear preference for eldar here, not necessarily a bad thing :wink:

I really like that ghost/soulless/wraithbone themed army, spooky!

I ended up going for the Eldar and the BT's. I think If the prism's paint scheme had of fitted with the rest of the force he would have walked It!

I voted for the ELdar as well, as did jezlad. I think if the Prism had been painted as completely as the rest of the army, then it would have made no difference. He didn't win because he was italian, just like all weekend i heard people bitching about italian players even though when playing next to them i saw a few examples where there Opps were trying to screw them over with rules where ever possible. When The winnners went up the 2nd and 3rd places got MUCH louder Cheers than the italian winner. Sure they had mates in the Hall. but the cheers were louder throughout the hall, not just from there mates.

If I remember correctly he was actually Spanish. When he won the best painted at heat 1 he took a Spanish flag with him on to the stage.

I dont't see anything wrong with a bit of patriotism. If I won on their soil i'd wear and football kit, carry a flag and scream "England till I die..."

I do agree with Jigplums though. The regular GT attendee wants the foreign players to do badly - it's only natural to want the UK to outperform them.

I've played 3 Italian guys in my time at the GT, 2 were against knowledgeable fair and fun players (I got owned both times). One was against an asshole with fat wide rim NHS glasses. This wasn't a good game...

Looking back on that tournament in my heat with guard I would of scored 11 with the current system - might be worth digging the guard out again. I'm obviously better playing them than BA :twisted:

its possible the guy was spanish actually, just that he was sitting with the italian guys. Maybe its a case of the foreign GT-ers vs the English. lol

My votes went for the Templars then the Khorne. I'll admit that the templars weren't as well painted, but I liked the base, the models integration to it and the feature pieces.

Where's the photo's of my army?? :evil:
I'd be surprised if they got (m)any votes, I was surprised they got nominated TBH. They're neat, but not awe inspiring.

No offense to the guy that painted the templars but the Khorne And Eldar armies were IMO of a MUCH higher standard. Basically looking at them i thought, i could do that if i really put the effort in. Whilst the Khorne and ELdar, no chance they were both awesome. Personally though i think the eldar were again that step even higher. Did you see the rangers? I think ive got a semi just thinking about them :)

Well done on getting nominated Prophaniti. Maybe if we break the Taylors fingers and the italian/spanish guys you could take the prize next year :lol:

Nah thats bullshit about not winning because he was spanish/italian. I was going to vote the black eldar but the prism put me off as it didn't seem to fit. And the reason the 2nd and 3rd overall places got really louder cheers was because the 20 odd or so Flame On people there knew both of them (3rd was a flame on person, 2nd was one of the many people we end up drinking with), were by the far the loudest people there.

Anyway the khorne is amazing in person, deservedly winning IMO.
