Well, Andy has started his review of Open War and Michael has posted his so it's time for mine. First up, here is our Claws and Fists team photo:

Andy sorted out the t-shirts and I think we all looked very snazzy.
First up, I'd like to say I had a brilliant time, I was a bit nervous playing my first tournament but all of the guys I played were fantastic. My attempt at live-blogging the event went rather by the wayside as I was too focused on the games during them and too focused on the bar inbetween. However, I did manage to finish with a W1 D1 L1 record on the day which left me in 35th place. Another couple of Kill Points here or there and I could have finished in the top 30. Ah well, it wasn't meant to be. To be honest I was a bit like Michael going into the tournament - anywhere but last! With that in mind 35th (out of 66) feels pretty good. I do feel I let my team down a bit though as they both managed "massacres" (25 Battle Points) and I didn't.
However, I did manage to be the only winner in the team courtesy of the raffle:
I have a slightly crazed look as I'm thinking about what else I need to make a Dark Elf army (hmm, War Hydra anyone?)
Over the next fews days I'll post a game by game account of my first ever tournament so everyone can see the mistakes I made and then I'll finish it off with a general review of my list...
