This is the first year where we had the opportunity to provide our customers with a two-day experience. We began on Saturday with the core event- Gamesworkshop’s Warhammer Fantasy and Warhammer 40K with Privateerpress’ Warmachine and Hordes (Warmahordes). At the end of the day, the North had a slight edge in points. But North’s hopes of bringing back the cup this year were dashed as the entrants came in on Sunday laying down a heavy hand of Wizards of the Coast’s Magic the Gathering wins, Megacon Games’ Mercs Minis wins and finally Fantasy Flight’s X-wing wins all essentially for the South.
This was the biggest Civil War yet. We had, for the two-day event, sixty-seven players and over twenty-five hundred dollars in prizes and products that were given away! What an awesome experience!
Big Thank you to all that came. It really made for an extremely special weekend. We’re already looking as to how to improve it for next year!
Special Announcements: We’d like to take a moment and congratulate those individuals that stood out with exemplary play during the core Civil War event with the best overall record for each system. These players also received a $10 gift card for their accomplishments.
Warhammer Fantasy: Gary Luther
Warhammer 40k: Aaron Aleong
Warmahordes: Jason Guy
Also, We awarded a $10 gift card for one player from each system for best painted army. Those players are:
Warhammer Fantasy: Tom Bright – Wood Elves
Warhammer 40k: Aaron Aleong – Necron/Orks
Warmahordes: Andrew Hartley – Mercenaries
For your viewing pleasure we have two vine videos, just to give a taste of what it was like.
Video one and two.
Again, we hope everyone had a great time and look forward to next year!
