The miniatures are from North Star, except the witchdoctor/medicine man who are from Foundry.
I really like these North Star miniatures, they are lots of fun to paint.
I thought I could give my Jungle Cannibals some reinforcements as Im somehow drawn to my Tribal Africa project again. It feels good to take up a older project and continuing where I left it.
And with the rest of the tribesmen on their warband movement trays from Tiny Terrain http://tinyterrain.com/

After 3 victory's out of 3 games the first day I knew my luck would end any second.
I had a Shaltari and a PHR army to meet. I did manage surprisingly good with one draw and a small loss. Im extremely happy with my small soldiers, they did good real good.
This meant that I ended on the third place, behind the two organisers of the tournament (which I had beaten the other day... *cought cought*).
And as such I would win first price (as the organizers was disqualified from any prices). I chose a kit of some brushes, dices and a ruler.
As the convention and the games were taking its toll on strength I didn´t take as many pictures as day one.
Thanks for Erik (http://egges40k.wordpress.com/) and Stefan for a nice tournament and all the players attended. I meat some people I hadn´t meet for some time as well as some new ones.
After this I shifted my whole army to his flank and almost pulled it out. Only just loosing because of his infantry in the houses got him his points. On the ground I was in command by now.
It was a nice comeback after seeing my force decimated the first couple of turns from his head on assault. Shifting to the flank and pulling his forces apart, I should have done this much earlier and things could have looked differently.
Here are some other post about Wexio Gaming Convention or the Dropzone Commander tournament.
And we made it in the local news paper.

I entered with the plan that this would be a great way to finally learn the rules... So after speedpainting an army and making some extra terrain pieces of I went.
I will not post any battle reports of the games played but they turned out far better then I had ever anticipated. The first day I had 3 victory's out of 3 games and thats includes two games against the organisers. Things did look good out of a tournament perspective. More on that in a later post.
Here are a photodump on pictures I took from day 1 from the tournament and some from the rest of the convention. More pictures are to follow at a later date.
Thats the end of my pictures from day 1.
