Hagen did a great job organising and running the event. It was somewhat strange as I'm used to going to WHFB/FOW events where I know everyone. While there were a lot of WHFB orphans there it was good to meet and come across a lot new faces. The games were all enjoyable, I picked up a lot of ideas and have already registered for Call to Arms the next 40k event on the calendar.
Anyway Battle Reports to come soonish in the interim here are the tables from the event and pictures of most of the armies that were there. I didn't get photos of all of them as they weren't all set up for the parade.
|Sam Whitt's Blood Angels the very deserved winner of Best Painted|
|Jeff's Space Wolves - every model is fully magnetised for full customability arms, legs, weapons the whole lot|
|One of the 2 Knight armies - this one belonged to Dave H who finished 3rd|
|Sisters of Battle|
|1 of 2 Imperial Guard Armies - the 2nd had models based on the British Imperial army from the 19th century|
|Part of Simon S's huge Imperial Guard army - really liked this one|
|Daemons of Chaos - finished 2nd and won 2nd best painted|
|The event winning army Dark Eldar - I got monstered by this but nearly snatched a win|
Some really good looking armies on display throughout the weekend and the overall results were pretty close with very few points separating the top half of the field. Composition scoring ended up deciding many of the places.
