Adepticon Clash of Kings 2016 pt 2

Caleb and Kyle (boy, that sounds like a Nickelodeon show from the 90's, doesn't it?) do really fun youtube videos on Kings of War - and they were scraping the bottom of the barrel at Adepticon so interviewed me during the tournament.



One of the best parts of running tournaments is seeing the beautiful armies that people bring.  The Clash of Kings at Adepticon was no exception.  While only 16 of the armies qualified for the Best Painted Mantic Army award by having 75% Mantic or more models, they were all fantastic armies that people deserve to be proud of.

Because it is all fun and games . . .
