Paris Leg of the 2019 Good, Bad and Ugly Tournament
Myths and Legends 2019 which took place on November 23rd in Ballainvilliers near Paris did provide a lot of fun to all participants. It was an excellent HOTT gaming day, even though we had 3 last minute cancellations. This tournament was counting as the Paris Leg of the GBnU International Tournament,
Each participant did play 6 games, with nobody winning or losing all their games. Here are the results :
The players were:
Left to Right Armand Berger, Thomas Martin, Claude Chenuil, Nicolas Perez, Fabien Mulcey, Jean Pierre Rivière and François Crestaux.
Rank Name First name club Army Good or Evil total
1 Chenuil Claude ACLEB Conan of Aquilonia Good 96
2 Crestaux François F&S Human Kingdom Good 78
3 Martin Thomas isolé Mythological Japanese Good 75
4 Rivière Jean Pierre F&S AntiGreta Evil 60
5 Berger Armand CFJ Back to D&D Evil 58
6 Perez Nicolas F&S The invisible army Neutral 47
7 Mulcey Fabien TADEFIG L'armée du Naze-Gul Evil 28
Our leg produced a stunning victory for the Good, with the “Good” players taking all the positions on the podium.
Jean Pierre Rivière with his “Anti-Greta” army won the competition of the best themed army. He did recycle toys of his youth in a stunning HOTT army which easily won the vote competition. Anti-Greta is an army solely made of evil polluters emitting huge quantities of CO2 and toxic particles and phenolic gases! This is their aim in life and great is their joy at being so good at it! But scaring Greta is only an amusement. The real business is slaying foes. Unfortunately, on the battle field, its lack of bad going troops did cause him a few problems, but nevertheless, well done Jean Pierre ! I am not sure whether the poor Grata Thurnberg would appreciate his highly polluting army…. His composition was :
• 1 General Rider
• 3 Artillery
• 4 Rider
• 1 Airboat
• 2 Hordes
Best stronghold GBnUIT
Thomas Martin with the fortress of his “Mythological Japanese” army painted in 1970’s style won the competition of the best themed fortress.
As I am posting this on behalf of the Paris team, I want to share that Claude and his team joined the tournament this year, and have already been a great addition to the tournament. As I do every year with this event I cannot help but be amazed at just how creative the players around the world can be. I genuinely love seeing the players, the various armies and the games. For me at least it makes the world just a tad bit smaller, and form experience I can tell you, that one can go to another place, city, country and sit down to enjoy a game of HOTT. And that, is the purpose of this tournament – to share a common pleasure, with people of different languages, and even those who drive on the wrong side of the road….sorry couldn’t help myself.
