Incidentally, these figures were displayed on the prize table so you can see what was on offer! Plenty of new Tau stuff, Execution Force and a F.A.T mat. I wonder why people like Blog Wars....
Luke Capper (Swarmlord), Ian King (1st Edition Librarian), Dave Halfpenny (Tigurius), Tom Capper (Corbulo), Will Pomfrey (Sgt. Garadon), Alex Martin (Maugan Ra) and James Winsor (Vulkan He'stan) all get a mention here for their fine entries. All of which are well ahead of anything I've produced! Hopefully I can enter something at Fluffageddon if Matt has a suitable category for me. Just missing out on the top 3 were Rob Hill (Lemartes) and Matthew Grimes (Ahriman).
I'm pretty sure Chris Benstead has won Best Character with his Abaddon at some point in BW history but nevertheless it still catches peoples' eyes. With good reason too as it's a great centrepiece for his stunning Iron Warriors force (if technically in the wrong Legion....).
Tess Yoxall rather controversially entered his Eldrad Ulthran who wasn't actually his Hero for BW purposes. He had cleared it with me in advance though and I've had allowed anyone else who asked to do the same. It isn't that serious an even follks! Anyway, I think you'll agree it's a stunning piece and was only pipped for first place by a single vote!
Rounding out a clean sweep for the "Friends of Dave Weston" crew, Ben Houghton's Ghazghkull (from an equally stunning Ork army) was a well deserved winner. Let's all bask in the Beast of Armageddon's glory:
