Here are some results for the month of August from events that feed into Throne of Skulls Games Workshop annual Tournament.
Got an email from Mike Major with a great summary of Astronomi-Con Vancouver Event. Held a few weeks back. Astronomi-Con events specialize in all parts of the hobby. As well it is one of the few 1500 pts events, so instead of me rambling let Mike take it away!
First of all, here are the results:
Best Overall – Michael Rusca – Space Marines
Mike R. had a fairly standard Space Marine army. Fairly mechanized
but no drop pods. He had a Thunderfire which he used to fairly good

Best Sportsman – Marshall Reeves – Imperial Guard
Marshall was playing his IG which won best appearance at the Vegas
Throne of Skullz. Gorgeous army! Jason ‘Doc’ Dyer came in 2nd on a

Best Army – Mitchell Stevens – Space Marines

Best General – Jeff Everitt – Space Wolves
Also a very nice army. Really lovely painting and conversion in this
force. I expect he was up there in the standings for Overall as well.
Best Terrain – Dean Gilbert – Tomb Raider
Dean brought some really cool Egyptian Themed terrain. Hopefully
there will be photos…
Best Single Miniature – William Hellebrand – Fateweaver

own hazmat suits, makes you put them on and only then lets you open
this gigantic case to find a scroll wound around gigantic (real)
Let’s just say it was quite the performance!
