Hey, this might seem like a silly question, but does anyone know where you can find the results of recent grand tournaments? In particular, who won 1st, 2nd, 3rd, etc and the army list that they fielded. I've googled around and I can't seem to find anything.
Any help would be much appreciated!
Well what GW is willing to share can be found poking around
However they aren't a big fan of letting you know what army lists won. Making that info sometimes rather tricky to find.
But it is good to find out about if you can. It looks like Eldar might have won a GT in 2008. And the unspoken rule is that if Eldar win a GT the elements that drove the victory need to be nerfed in short order.
For example in the past Eldar won almost as much as Marines through the strength of the disruption table and boxing warlocks. Both of which were taken out back and shot like people who won too much in a mob casino.
And then they lopped off the starcannon's balls as a warning.
Ok, that's getting a bit ranty. However I'm serious that if Eldar win it means they need "balancing" and you can somewhat predict the next round of nerfs or rule changes from the lists that win.
Hehe bitter anyone? =p
The main reason I want to see what armies are consistently doing well in tournaments is to be able to keep that in mind if I were ever to enter a tournament, as I'd probably see those armies. I guess the reason GW keeps that hushed up is probably for the same reason I want to know it - otherwise people won't buy the variety of armies out there and instead everyone will buy what wins.Do they do this with all armies or do they just have a special place in their heart for eldar?Ok, that's getting a bit ranty.

Thanks a bunch, and wow... the highest eldar player is 24th place, which oddly enough is higher than the highest space marine player, I thought marines were supposed to be one of the harder armies to beat nowadays.the 40k finals for Baltimore can be found here
People moan about stuff all the time. One of the UK heats was won by a Dark Angels army and people that rate DAs as unstoppable are few and far between!
I think people thought the new marine codex was as hard as nails, and they were right to some extent but the GTs prove that they are properly costed in points too. There's nothing broken about smurfs or eldar.
The GT results for the UK, which I still think is the definitive GT, can be found at the Warhammer World Blog. If anyone here was one of the lucky wildcard winners then congratulations. I will be back next year!
Otherwise I'm not sure. I haven't been following GT results for more than, oh, six years maybe? And up until now I think Eldar had been the only race that started to edge in on Chaos/SM in terms of number of armies in the Tourney and odds of being in the top ten or winning.
Other armies would win now and then, even Dark Eldar, but they kinda came out of nowhere, and never had particularily high representation.
I guess we'll see if Orks can manage to be a major factor. However It seems fairly easy to readjust ones army to oppose them if you're willing to sacrifice anti MEQ ability. So I've got a feeling they may get hated out in the metagame if they rise too high too often.
With the abundance of cover saves, I'd rather take sheer weight of attacks and shots tahn very few low ap shots. I've used warp spiders a couple of times with an autarch attached and they've done very well against marines so far. Usually killing half if not a whole squad when they land, if they get close.

Eldar have always been a steeper learning curve than chaos and loyalist marines.
Remember, its all based on the dice gods!
