Congratulations in Order

I understand that congratulations are in order to Team New Zealand at the recent 2017 ETC in Salamanca, Spain.

Playing in The Ninth Age event they were voted by their peers as the Most Sporting Opponents.

This is the first time any of the Australasian Fantasy teams have made the podium. Great testament to the guys that they behaved so admirably in such a stressful environment. Believe me, things can get quite prickly there at times.

The NZ wargaming community should be justifiably proud of our team's efforts.


  1. Thanks for the shout-out Pete - I'm really proud of the team.

    I told the guys going in that the number one goal should be best sports and everything else from there is secondary. We went in with the right mindset, played in good spirits and had only a handful of disputes across the entire weekend (an accomplishment in itself at the ETC).

    With half the team being brand new to the ETC environment (and the pressures thereof), I think it's a testament to the manner in which the team carried itself throughout the weekend.

    I'd like to thank not only the team, but all of the supporters we had from across the world. Your input, advice and help in play-testing and organising was hugely appreciated. It really means a lot to know that we did our country proud!
