2012 BRAWL Photos!

Well I had a blast at this years event, I want to thank everyone who came out and played.  It was cool to see so many people willing to traverse such a distance to hang out with us in Pullman WA.  I spent the weekend armed with a camera and a PBR.  Overall, it was the best time I have had at a Warhammer event.  I have a full album over on photobucket

Here are a few sample shots:

The necklace of Teef (sculpted by Evan, Cast by Magnus and painted by Deke a real team effort).  This went to the best general Jeremy.

Doug Stoker - saying this table is B*LLSH*T!

Chance and Corey battling it out.

Chris R. telling George "I am going to punch that camera man in the face!"

Fernando after his Space Wolves killed Tony's battlewagon with Death or Glory!  Also, this is pretty standard Fernando.

Federico - "And that is why Abaddon SUCKS!"
Bob - "I will shatter your knee caps.."

Paige - "Awe honey your army is so cute!"
Chris - "Yes, killer robots from the future are cute"
**Note Chris' army won best painted and is therefor deemed cute

Tony, before his battlewagon was destroyed by Death or Glory.  Also, 15 minutes into day 2 and working on his first PBR.  Tony is a true hero of DMB.

Yep he is going for the nipple.  Tony Marsters and Bob Kelly

Evan - "This terrain should be on my side of the board"
Khan - "I am pointing to where I will kick you"   (yes his name is Khan)

Local DMB Creed and Mike Bezzold play as Brandon sneaks by.

40k is a thinking mans game, with beer.  Ronnie and Brian.

Jeremy admiring how much death he can pack into one Bastion.  This is the army that won best general.

Carrey Scott putting on his best face, seriously this is his best one.

Josh and Duncan playing for the best of Blood Angles, fighting over the fallen head of Mars.

Brandon looking worried as Tycho's Eldar push onto his side of the table.

Joel one of our reps from Hodgins Drugs playing against Shane's Iron Warriors.

George and Tycho having WAY too much fun playing 40k (whats really in those Coke cans?)

The Thinker.  Dan

James gives Corey plenty of space when he rolls his dice.

Do you see this? Seriously!  Pat doesn't think that Chris really has that range.

Finally.  The Tournament Organizer Magnus with our pal Cameron who came into town, but forgot his Guard so he didn't get to play!

DMB Brawl Final Results!

Congratulations to our winners, and all who attended! We really enjoyed having you over, and we are already looking forward to the next time. Here is the final score sheet I promised:

Best Overall (and the soon-to-be-delivered Golden Whatsit) goes to Bob! Even in the waning days of his old codex, Bob of the Black Legion can still kick some ass.

Best Sportsman goes to Federico, with a whopping four favorite opponent votes! A shout out to Khan for grabbing three and coming in a close second for Best Sportsman.

For Best Painted, may I present Chris (known by some as Aventine) and his hideously perfect Necron legion, erupting from the soil and trailing behind them loose earth and roots.

Best General goes to Jeremy! Apparently he hadn't gotten the memo that Sisters of Battle suck, as he has been bashing in heads and pulling out teef for trophies all over the United States. A Frenchman hasn't kicked this much ass in America since Bloodsport.

Prize Support, showing the Best of Faction seals and the Necklace of Teef. Apologies for the blur!

For Best of Faction (each earning a Purity seal describing their badassery) we have:

Ronnie with Tyranids,
Joel with Tau,
Chance with Space Wolves,
Dan with Space Marines,
Jeremy with Sisters of Battle,
Federico with Orks,
Brian with Necrons,
Pat with Imperial Guard,
Doug with Grey Knights,
Tycho with Eldar,
Tony with Dark Angels,
Bob with Chaos Space Marines,
Duncan with Blood Angels.

Congratulations to all of you! I can't wait until next year!

Sad news: Narrative portion of the event cancelled

Hey guys, good news and bad news!

Bad news first: Unfortunately we've had to cancel the Brawl Narrative portion of our event due to lack of interest. We've got too much competition within the same event for the tournament! Those who have already purchased tickets for the Narrative event have been contacted about getting a refund.

The good news is that this gives us an excuse to run a separate and exclusively focused narrative event early next year! We haven't settled on a weekend yet, but I want a good lead time for people to get ready for this event.

The 40k tournament side of things is looking great! We've been so busy finishing up terrain projects and getting some of our favorite club terrain refurbished that we've neglected to take a whole lot of pictures.
