Paths of Glory 12!

This weekend was Paths of Glory '12 held at Perkins hobby house in Petawawa.  This was a 1500 pt MW tournament and there were 22 or so players from the surrounding area and Ottawa.  As always the tournament was first class and a special thanks to Bob for running it for us and Gary the owner of Perkins for running it for us.  I've got photos from all my games and I'll be posting battle reports as fast as I can (I now have 6 that I need to post).

Best Overall Denis with Free French Armoured Rifles
Best General Ian with Italitan Bersigler
Best Army was a tie between Rob with Canadians and I with DAK
Best Sport was Darby with Tigers
Here are some shots of the armies, take a look at the Free French by Denis.

DAK vs German Infantry in Encounter

Marders stem the tide of incoming armour

I managed to get out to Perkins Hobby House in Petawawa to get a practice game in before the MW 1500 tournament that he's hosting later in April. I'm trying out my DAK germans to get back into playing with them. Brad was getting ready for the same tournament so this would be an ideal practice match. We rolled up encounter and as always tanks attack infantry.
