March Massacre 2012 – Final Results!

Well, our first big tournament is complete and in the books guys! Overall, we had an outstanding time with Tim at Gatehouse Games. The overwhelming repose from the local players, along with several people who traveled 2+ hours to play was just amazing. We went into this event hoping to hit 10 players and we were shocked to see 24 people show up to play. So shocked, we were building tables on the fly in round one to make room for everyone!

We want to make our sincerest apologies to Bill who bowed out of the event as we did not have enough room for everyone to play, and to those players who had to take a bye and only got two games in that day. We simply did not expect to see so many of you out there that day! This is a lesson we have learned the hard way and will be sure to bring more tables and terrain to our next event to make sure EVERYONE can play!

Outside of a few hiccups in my spreadsheet not expecting as many people as we had, the event went smoothly and I think everyone had a great time. Josh Turiano took first place, scoring 10’s in each and every one of his games, and he took second in painting! Alex Vavreck wowed us with his amazing paint job and he took home first place in painting! And since everyone at the event were such good sports, Tim could not decide on a Best Sportsmen and instead decided to give all people attending the event a 10% discount on purchases made that day! That was just amazing!
Here are the overall results from the day, we look forward to seeing you all in our next event, to be announced soon:

Hobby 101: A brave new world "dipping"

Hello gamers! It has been a bit since I last posted. I haven’t been playing 40K lately mostly due to work, but I have been doing some work in the hobby. Lately, the gaming group has been bitten by the Fantasy bug. I know, I know, we are mostly a 40k blog but I’m going to post a few Fantasy things here from time to time.

As of late I’ve been painting up my Tomb Kings! I have been looking in to ‘dipping’ to help speed up the process. So I’m learning as I go and you'll all along for the ride!

Here is the beginning of the project.

More pics to come.
