Anyway, onto Blog Wars itself. I'm afraid there's a bit of bad news. Andy Humphris who's the current reining champion had been planning on attending which is why I'd suggested the Giantkiller prize. Sadly he's not going to be able to make it which means the prize fund for that will be incorporated back into the main pot. It's a great shame as it means that there won't be any Sons of Sanguinius players at the event at all. They've been a mainstay of the previous events so I'm gutted that none of them can make it. It's largely down to the change of venue I expect which has pretty much been out of my hands. Perhaps for the next one I'll try and find a more central location.
What it does mean though is that there's guaranteed to be someone else winning Blog Wars 5! That's actually quite exciting to me. Not that I'd been getting bored of giving the prize to Andy or anything.... honest! Everyone else who's still attending will have been sent an email reminding them about army list submission. The deadline is midnight on 8th June which is a week on Saturday. I don't really mind how the lists are formatted as long as they're pretty straightforward to interpret. It's hard enough checking so many army lists on my own without having to decipher some crazy layout.
Once the army lists are submitted I'll be finalising the numbers and figuring out how much I can spend on prizes. Once I've done that it'll be a trip to my FLGS to buy everything and you can be sure I'll post details here. I'm looking forward to what is definitely going to be the biggest event yet, here's hoping it's the best!
