Over the weekend I attended a local tournament as a participant (for once). The event had roughly 30 people, and spilt into two tiers once the first round was over. Both tiers had $$ prizes, but the top tier also had coins. Additionally, there was a Best Painted Army award. I ended up going 1-3, but winning games wasn’t my goal for the event.
After round two, we were told to set up our best painted of our two lists, for judging. Obligingly, I set up the list I had taken to Templecon, and that I had been working on all last week (thus why I don’t have any paint on the Behemoth. That, and his ankles broke, which is discouraging).
In the past week, I…
- 2-brush blended the shades and highlights in the WGI grunts and rocketeers & Joe
- Added snow to the bases
- Added arc markings
Here’s the army:
And here are a few close-ups:
The TO and his assistant carefully judged all the armies, and I was chosen for Best Painted. Yay!
Coming in at second was local Mike H. Here’s some of his lovely red Cryx below, and you can read about his games, here.
I did not take many notes on my games, I had a headache and I didn’t want to try and remember details on four games. Maybe next time. Instead, here are some shots of my army in action, followed by a bunch of random pictures of other painted armies that were at the event.
