UK SAGA Grand Melee 2015
Congratulations to Andy Lyon who was crowned UK SAGA Grand Champion at the Official UK SAGA Grand Melee 2015! It was a hard fought tournament which took place in a brilliant atmosphere and Andy (Irish) was a mere 1 Tournament Point ahead of Mark Birch (Scots) who took second place. Third was Kurt Engelreist with his camel-tastic Mutatawwi'a warband.
Other prizes included:
Best Painted/Modelled Warband - Dave Meller (Milites Christi) with Steve Barclay... (Anglo-Danes) getting a bonus prize.
Wargames Illustrated's Fave Warband Roster - Steve Barclay that included a fantastic heroic poem which kept Lord S happy for hours.
The Dice Bag Lady's Woollen Spoon 'n' Casualty Pack prize - Graham Sergeant (Welsh) Hourrah!
There were many Spot Prizes each round, three of which were the Fastest Warlord Kill prize (outrageously won by John 'Hardradda' Cooves in the first turn of the first game!) and the Lowest VP Scored in one round and the Highest VP Scored in another round (both won by Jean-Paul Affagard's Crusaders!!)
Youngest Player Spot Prize was taken by Max Hammond (Milites Christi) and the Pilgrimage Prize for the Furthest Travelled to the Event Spot Prize was for Thomas Hitchen (Irish) who had travelled from the other side of the globe just for the event!
A massive THANK YOU to all the players who made the event and who all played in just the attitude Ragnar approves of - fun, fair and hard! Ragnar says a mighty HOURRAH! to you all.
Thank you also to 4Ground, Wargames Illustrated, LBMS, The Dice Bag Lady & KR Cases for their bountiful generosity in supporting the event. Thanks too to our chums at Derby who organised the Worlds Events - good job fellas.
We will be putting a load of pictures in the Gallery very soon.
See you all at next year's GM - watch out for more GB SAGA events to be announced soon......
Finally, if you are thinking of coming next year, here is some sage advise from Ragnar himself; "If in doubt, CHARGE!"
