Las Vegas Open Warmachine Recap

 

First off I want to thank everyone that came to this year's Las Vegas Open and made it such an amazing event. Without you guys it would never be so great. Also a huge thanks to all my Judges, PG's and helpers that made everything run smoothly and helped me keep my sanity over the weekend. 

For anyone interested in pictures and the like head over to the Facebook page. LVO Warmachine

There was an amazing turn out this year and FAT matts as far as the eye can see. 

Over the weekend we recorded a bunch of games and RFP Pressganged the Frontline Gaming streaming rig into the service of the Dragon Father. 

(Yes this is 40k, but it is what the stream set up looks like)

You can view the streamed games at http://www.twitch.tv/frontlinegaming_tv/profile

The RFP grudge matches are here starting at 10:46:00 http://www.twitch.tv/frontlinegaming_tv/v/41395284

The interview with William Hungerford starts at 0:18:00 http://www.twitch.tv/frontlinegaming_tv/v/40990032

And the IG matches that were streamed shortly later in the VOD at 1:05:00

Big thanks to Charles (Omnus), Emanuel Class and anyone else that helped for casting the games. But I know you did it just to play with the streaming toys!
