Sometimes even redcoats have good ideas, so I too made a group picture.
It was loosely based on this US Civil War photograph.
I tried to include everyone (at least, the active participants), but I couldn't find Deathdog's avatar and I didn't have all the parts to make Antonio, Fugazi and Ecclesiastes properly. I did my best to make them as accurate as possible with the parts I had.
Anyway, I hope I didn't miss anyone.

From left to right: Cara, Sebeus I, Frank Brick Wright, Kabel, Yawgmoth, Mazin, Deathdog, Ratshot, Admiral Croissant, The Inventor, Esurient, Antonio, Grimmbeard, Brig. Brick, Ecclesiastes, Fugazi, Captain Blackmoor.

Here is a link to the larger, coloured version.

EDIT: I decided to make a better version:

And a link to a larger version of the same photograph + Large and colored.

LOL, and the bluecoats strike back! Nice photo editing. I love how some of EB members can muster so many mini-figs.

Wowsers! This is great! :sweet: I love it :wub:

A ship is floating in the harbour now,

The wind is hovering o'er the mountain's brow;

There is a path on the sea's azure floor,

No keel has ever ploughed that path before

It's a very good photograph, I have to grant you at that. However, you might find it at the bottom of the ocean after the contest.

Same old bluecoats, always copying us. Great photo though, and I love the tent.

Great job Mr.Copycat.
According to my personal opinion. It's alittlebit blurry. You really have squees your eyes together, and stare at it for a very long time, to identify your comrades.

Eventhough, it's nice that both teams now have a group shot

Well I tried to make it look like an old photograph so that's why it's a little bit blurry and why I included a link to a larger coloured pic.

I knew I should have thrown those pennies for a copyright sign. You'd owe me a box of croissants now! Nice photo, glad that bluecoats are trying to catch up, so the tournament stays interesting.

Scorpiox?! What are you doing there, you sneaky bastard - master of espionage, the blues don't even know who's in their ranks ... hahaha. Report to commander Red Hat immediately, just in case!

I had another go at this.
Unfortunately Mazin and Yawgmoth aren't very visible anymore, but outside of that I like this version the best.
One can do more with Gimp and MS Paint than you might think :classic:
This will be the last one. I don't want this to become an addiction :pirate:
