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:
- Crux of the Matter
- Line Breaker
- Err Supply
- Temple of Doom
- Convoy Raid
- Grot Mart
- Sink the Baneblade
Since some of the missions don’t make much sense without seeing the tables, here are photos of each:

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!
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!
