Blog Wars 2 Results - Ven does it again!

See what I did with that little rhyme there? So Blog Wars 2 was at the weekend and I those of you who didn't make it are probably thinking "are you finally going to stop going on about it then?" and yes, I am, but not until I've given you a run down of the results, the painting comp, what was good and bad and of course my battle reports. Oh and a little bit about something I'm imaginatively titling "Blog Wars 3"! 

Well, as you might've guessed, Venerable Brother from Sons of Sanguinius successfully defended his crown and did so with the "new" codex again. I did point out that next time this might mean he needs to bring Tau though! Here's a full listing of the results:

So it was a pretty close run thing for first and second with only a single tournament point in it! I think I was as surprised as Matt that he came in third. Even so he only won by 700+ VPs which over three games isn't that significant! I'm pretty pleased with placing in the top 10, especially since last time I was in the bottom third of the table. I'll be writing in more details about how I got on in a later post but at least I won one! 

Andy was obviously pretty pleased with himself so we really need to wipe the smile off his face at Blog Wars 3! Please check out the blogs of those who attended as I'm sure they'll be posting battle reports and pictures from the event soon.

Overall I'm pretty pleased with how the event ran. Yet again I've got a list of things I can do better (which I'll talk about in another post) but in general it went well even with me making it complicated with custom missions!

Don't worry he got back up!
There was a nice mix of new people and those who'd come to the original Blog Wars event. I was pleased to see some real effort had gone into planning the armies and there were some very interesting list which made for some close battles. My personal highlight was that in the final game Andy Lane's Orks met up with David Clark's Imperial Guard which meant there was a clash between Ghazghkull and Yarrick!!

I'll save everything else for other posts but I'll end this by saying a big thank you to everyone who came on Saturday and made the event a success again. I hope you'll all be able to make it next time around too. 


  1. thank you once again for running such a great event. next time i think i'll take a real list for once. that said, playing as, and even winning two games with a frankly insane Elysian list was a blast, and i heartily recommend others try something similar, even if just for a friendly game or two.

  2. hear, hear. It was a great event, it's got my 40K juices going again and I'm actually looking forward to Throne of Skulls in January now. Thanks for running it again and looking forward to the next one.

  3. Just wanted to echo the other lads, great event as expected..thanks for running it and putting the hard work in Alex.

    Can't wait for the next one!!

    x x

  4. Fantastic tournament as always Alex. You're giving the established order a real run for their money with your organisation and fresh, fun gaming approach.

    The big draw for me is the unique missions and friendly nature of the event as a whole. Please keep the special missions, I for one love them!

    Til next time,

    Graham (Grazer) & Hive Fleet Nemesis.
