On November 7th we had the first Dead Killy: Kill Team Tournament at the local GW.
For a $10 entry fee and a readable copy of your army list you got into the tournament.
We had a field of ten competitors. This brought the prizes given out to $120 in total (I put up $20 to get the ball rolling).
The prizes given out were 1st Place ($48), 2nd Place ($24), Last Place (Booby)($12), and Best Appearance ($36).
I would say that a great time was had by all. A two-way tie for 2nd place went down as well as three-way tie for last place. We did end up running "playoff" games so that clear winners were found.
1st Place went to a local school teacher named Ryan Degenhardt and his brutal Tau Kill Team.
2nd and 3rd Place went to, two Dark Eldar players. Zach took 2nd and Cody took 3rd.
4th place was, surprisingly, a Necron Kill Team that consisted only of 8 or 10 warriors.
Last Place was a hard fought affair with Ork Lootas, Plague Marines, and Space Marines battling to be the best (of the worst?). Chris' mix of sniper scouts and assault marines took the day and summarily declared that they were the worst of the lot.
Cale's Plague Marines took Best Appearance. We had to go to an outside judge as the three painting judges were tied between the plague marines and Ryan's beautiful Tau force.
My daughter Lauren was the photographer for the day and also did an outstanding job. Unfortunately, she did not take pics of either of the two best painted forces in the tournament.
