After the Test.

Wow. What a crazy time.

SeerK's Test of Khaine tournament went into full swing this past Saturday at Evo. I will admit, I am a little slow on the report here, but I had a paper to write, sorry. School trumps gaming.

Anyhow, I lent a hand to SeerK, mostly helping with odds and ends and keeping him sane. I had to jet before the tourney started, because I had to work, but I did return in time to see round 3, the final results, and the painting competition.

Fist of all, this was the largest wargaming tournament that Evo has ever had. SeerK capped the attendance at 32 due to space, but if everyone could have played that showed up, it easily would have been in the 40's. I am in full admiration of those who dropped out of the tournament, and stayed to help out instead. That shows a lot of character. :)

 The shop has more tables in it than pictured, my camera ran out of battery before I could get photos of everything I wanted. :( But the store is about 2x what you see pictured, and the place was packed.

The winners were......

1st Mike Couchard (orks)
2nd Steve Krohn aka "Lord Solar Steve" of DFG ( Imperial Guard)
3rd  Bill Kim (Daemons)
4th Eric Gibbs (Blood Angels)

The painting contest had some fabulous entries, however, there was one piece that stood out over the rest. Bob Murphy had an absolutely AMAZINGLY painted Eldar force. I want to show pictures, and I think OldSchool from DFG got pictures. I'll post them as soon as I get them. What amazed me about his forces was that he was painting them in a direction that I never even would have considered doing.

He had a Wraithlord that he hand painted scales on the armor, and a mural across the head. Absolutely amazing.

Well, here's the pic I got before my camera died, it is of Matt's Orc BattleWagon, amazingly painted.

That's it for now, I'll post more when I get more pics!
