Meeplemart Mini-con 2012 Tournament Results!

This past Saturday 16 players met at Meeplemart to throw down in an Astronomi-con prep tournament. While I have run a few casual 40k Leagues in the past, this was the first time I had ever run an actual Tournament! I have to say it was a huge success. The tournament was a lot of fun and I can’t wait to run something similar in the future. For those interested, a full gallery of the day’s events can be found here.

For those of you not familiar with Astronomi-con, it’s a more hobby focused tournament. The biggest difference from other tournaments is that each table has it’s own unique terrain and custom mission. You’re not just playing the simple missions out of the 40k rulebook and you have no idea what to expect until you bring your army over to your assigned table! With the full Astro having between 50-60 players/25-30 tables and my own tournament only having 16 people/8 tables, I had a lot of different missions to pick from. Here are the 8 missions I settled on:

Since some of the missions don’t make much sense without seeing the tables, here are photos of each:

Crux of the Matter Table Linebreaker Table

Err Supply Table Temple Of Doom Table

Convoy Raid Table Recon Table

Grot Mart Table Sink the Baneblade Table

The Armies

I didn’t get a photo of everyone’s army, but I tried. Tristan’s Space Marines are missing because it was facing the wrong way when I made my rounds. Dave T’s Necrons are missing because it was all grey plastic and black primer!

Lorand's Imperial Fists Jeff's Blood Angels

Matt's Space Marines David's Orks

Jon's Death Guard Joffrey's Orks

Claudio's Space Wolves Neil's Tyranids

Joe's Chaos Marines Darrin's Iron Warriors

Raf's Eldar Michael's Orks

 

That’s all for now! I’ve uploaded a 77 image gallery over in the Events Coverage section for you to view. Go check it out!

    Good work! How come everyone who play’s orks is named Dave? ;-)
