I haven't played 40K since 3rd edition was introduced, & I didn't go there to participate in any gaming, but instead to enter what would be my first painting competition in 16 years.
I entered 2 categories with the following models:
I managed pretty well, placing second in both categories, which gave me 2 brushes & 2 gift certificates in the local hobby shop.
So why write this post, just to brag? No, while I am proud of my placements I really wanted to write this because of how well the tournament was organized & how friendly the community was, despite it being a tournament people seemed to have a nice time, laughing, chatting etc etc.
The feeling in the room was the same as some of the first tournaments I played in, & for that the people over at https://scattereddice.wordpress.com/ should get big credits.
I will end this post by showing you some pics of the great looking armies & models people used:
Even Stormcast can look good!
This was my favorite army.
Lovely Eldar army which won best painted.
This great daemonprince just screams Hellraiser to me!
