On February the 16th & 17th the first NZ Teams event (ETC Style if not comp) will take place in Wellington. Put on by Pete Dunn and a supporting cast it should be a fiercely contested event. I will be leading Team NZ Hammered (name under consultation) down from Auckland seeking Warhammer glory… with that in mind I have assembled what I believe should be a highly competitive team. At this stage not all lists are in (and by the sounds of it some of the teams might be leaving themselves with a lot to do with possible late list penalties) I won’t give anything away about army selections or races that we are taking but will give a quick team rundown.
Ant “Cheese Master” Kitson – Ant is a warhammer tournament veteran and past NZ Master so will be looking to perform well against some of the youth movement (and Pete) from Wellington!
John “Part-Timer” Willenbruch – John made a big impact on the NZ scene last year winning two events with his Brets and placing well at a number of others, currently ranked 6th in NZ. He missed out on Masters attendance due to timing and is looking to bring his form into this one.
Glenn “Best Painted” Tibbles – Glenn as the name suggests is widely regarded for the excellent quality of armies he turns out. He is also a solid general with Beastmen, Tomb Kings and Warriors of Chaos who will provide solid experience to the team.
Me! James “El Capitano” Brown – I’m looking to bring my recent tournament form into a big player event having finished 1st/1st/4th at my last three smaller two dayers. Also having to turn down a Masters invite due to being out of the country I am hoping to lead my team to glory!
