So, Smogcon is on now in Guildford in not so sunny England this weekend. I am currently sitting in the airport preparing to fly out to London for work......I am also attending Smogcon tomorrow.

Smogcon is a pretty big event, War Machine/Hordes and Iron Kingdoms has many tourneys, Malifaux is also there and I believe this year is the first time Bushido and Dropzone Commander are making an appearance.

I realised on Monday that Smogcon was on and it was logistically possible to attend the event by jumping on a train from London. With some more digging I worked out there are tourneys on there, the PPress events had sold out, but not The Bushido Grand Masters....a few quick emails to advanceop and reaper and BAM! I purchased the last ticket to the Bushido grand masters.

I have played half a game (23 rice) against svenbloodhowl since Iron Dragon, so clearly I have this event in the bag!!! I have all the rules/cards with me for the plane to cram over 20hours of flying.

I also need to now head straight from Heathrow to the tourney which is again, a winning plan.

I will try my best to upload photos to this thread over the weekend......if I don't post anything I have passed out clutching the first place trophy I won.

Wish me luck
Simmo

Yatsumata - Ito Clan

It’s unclear if this huge snake is a priestess of Orochi warped by the kami into its image or simply a monster from the jungles of Shimagamo. In battle Yatsumata moves with frightening speed and direction as if guided by an unseen hand. In combat each head can deliver a muscle wasting venom through foot long fangs as hard as iron, downing even the toughness warriors as they are reduced to a whimpering mess. Two heads leave the unholy beast with few natural blind spots, adding to its already strong survivability and resilience gifted by its speed and thick scales.

I am now awaiting my luggage at Heathrow.

I probably had 6 hours sleep on the 14hour flight and watched a lot of Workaholics and Arrow.....also glanced at the Bushido Rules a couple of times.

I have just under 4 hours to make it to the event for registration!!
