Hello fine people,

Been a while between post as I have been painting like a daemon to get my army ready for a few tournaments and this coupled with work and other things has meant that there’s been no time to post… however…

I did win Best Painted over the weekend at Quarter Master (QM). This was very pleasing as the calibre presentation was very high and their was some genuine competition present. QM is easily one of the longest running tournaments here in Brisbane (with a few notable exceptions) and attracts some of the best 40k gamers in Queensland. It has not been without controversy and QM 3.6 was not run by its original creator as he stepped aside. It was good to see that Neal who ran 3.6 did a great job and I hope he builds on his success for QM 4.6.

So the tournament is the usual format with 5 games over two days (3 on Saturday and 2 on Sunday) If you want to see pics of the event and dont yet follow my FB page, go have a look. I took lots of pictures of the weekend. So the break down of the games went like this…

Game one. Grudge match between myself and Aaron Baily’s Tyranids. I count Aaron amongst my good friends and he’s an exceptionally talented painter and quite a good gamer too. He too has a blog, so if you haven’t been to have a look at it, stop reading this now and check it out. Our game resulted in a minor loss to me, however it was a fun game and many laughs were had. Aaron’s army actually won the “Peoples Choice” award, which is who the participants of the tournament believe had the best painted army…

Game two. Carcharodons V Hayden Walduck’s Daemons. This game resulted in a comprehensive thrashing of my Sharks. Ouch

Game three. Carcharodons V Kevin Vidgen’s Dark Eldar. My sharks were thrashed within an inch of their lives in this one too… sad face

Game four. Carcharodons V Phil Brigland’s Orks. This was a major win to me. Phil actually won the Sportsmanship award, which I consider to be a massive compliment and in my opinion equal to a podium finish at any tournament. After playing Phil I have to admit its easy to see why he won the accolade. He’s a very easy opponent to play against, with a friendly easy going manner.

Game five. Carcharodons V Ben Avis’s Eldar. This game resulted in a drawer and yet again my burning dislike towards Eldar was deepened.

Overall I placed 15th out of a field of 23 players. So not a hot result, especially after coming of a 3rd at Rebelcon However it was a good weekend overall. The podium finishers were:

1st. Patrick Carter – Necrons

2nd. Josh McGowan – Necrons

3rd. Dave Flemming – Eldar/Grey Knights

Ok, so this weekend I’m playing in a 1750pt GW tournament, Iron General. I’m taking my Iron Hands for a bit of a change. The following weekend its Armies on Parade, and if I get my display board finished in time I plan on entering the sharks. In September there is of course Games Day, and the WW40k 40k Charity event, and then theres October… Its going to be busy…

Ok, thats it for me.

Thanks for dropping in

John
