Alongside the tournament itself I always run a two part painting competition. The first part is the obligatory Best Painted Army whereas the second is part of Blog Wars’ focus on Special Characters namely Best Painted Special Character. As ever there were some excellent entries, there were a few armies we’ve seen before alongside some excellent new entries. Best Painted Army The winner in this category was Hendrik Müller-Joswig who is Blog Wars’ first ever international player having travelled from Germany for the event! Whilst he may have placed 28th in the tournament his army is a worthy winner with 8 votes. Another notable mention goes to Chris Benstead's Chaos Space Marine force. Chris has previously had painting
Teleport Mishap! Here are the rest of the armies in the Adepticon Team Tournament Showcase, the best armies from the 40K Team Tournament.
Tournaments burn me out. I enjoy them, don’t get me wrong, but after one I’m hardly in a condition to write-up cool reports. That being said, I didn’t do one for the previous month so something is better than nothing, … Continue reading → The post Tournament Report: Chaos Climbs to the Top appeared first on Creative Twilight .
Hey guys! So as I’m sure most of you are aware, today and tomorrow is our two day Warhammer Fantasy tournament Lost Souls 2013, run by our very own RTGamer! The event is in full swing, and we’ve had 12 players show up, most of them Fantasy players from the Denver area! Anyways, just figured I’d show off the finished tables, as well as the event in full swing! I’ll be taking more pictures over the course of the weekend and, being the painting judge for the event, should have results of the event posted tomorrow! Stay tuned to the Facebook and Twitter pages too for lots of updates! Granesh
I’ve mentioned over the past few months the spring event being held at Crossroad Games in Standish, Maine which we’ve decided to call Fratris Salutem.

Hey guys! So GenghisCon 2013 has come and gone and, I gotta say, I can't hardly wait for the next event! I had a ton of fun running around, seeing new armies, new games, grabbing some swag, and chatting up some really great people the whole weekend!
Many are aware of Forge Worlds most recent massive project of providing rules and models for the Horus Heresy. I always was indifferent to it…until I actually read the rules! They are fun, competitive, fluffy, and (gasp!) they are actually well-written. If it’s one thing that has always bugged me with 40k is that the rules are pretty terribly written sometimes. For example, at the tournament I attended this past weekend I found out that RAW lets vehicles man quad guns…it was stupid! Whereas in 30k things are made competitive(ie, the Predator’s autocannon is 4 shot) but can also quickly add up in points( Horus costs 500!). The rules in 30k are very clear and I hope that GW can learn from FW in this area. Back to the subject, I personally am now a total fan of 30k, but there are still two main problems with 30k… 1. Cost This is always something brought up, usually in the same sentence, when Forge World is mentioned. They’re cost is high($115 for 3 jetbikes?!).
