Tournament Review – Bristol SMASH 2017

Bristol Smash 2017

After a flurry of last minute painting, I’m happy to say that I got my Skullreapers finished for Bristol Smash 2017 the beginning of June (3rd/4th). Now that the dust has settled and I’ve managed to regain my ability to think, here’s my summary of the event and the games I played.
