And Paul lost the battle against me by a grand 7 points... fortunately
for him that was in the qualification round where only two people were
knocked out ;-)

A combination of Space Fleet Tyranids and ICE Hatchlings IIRC - not
sure if the Phalons were painted? The ones that went onto the table
looked OK to me, anyway :-) And, of course, we could've "forced" people
to use Phalon or KV fleets to save up on models... for example, I had
enough KV models for two KV tournament fleets (as long as at least one
of them was the BDN one), and that's not counting the Kimbere
(blue/white) fleet.

The KV ground vehicles, yes... I bought ten blisters of those as well
for use in my KV bitz box :-)
