The Full Steam event was more casual than the usual Warmahordes tournament, 2 hour games, one army list and no turn timers - pretty damn relaxed.
10 players turned up and we got underway
There were three prizes for the day -
Marshall - most scenario points
Artisan - best painted battlegroup
Iron Valour - best sport
Artisan and Iron Valour are peer voted awards which is a nice departure from the usual "best of faction" awards at the book release events. PP are starting to acknowledge the "soft" scores through extra awards which is great, though tournaments are still won by winning games :)
Points were scored 2 for a scenario win, 1 for an assassination win (kill your opponents Warcaster/Warlock). Additionally there were a number of one off awards to get through the day as well, such as playing a fully painted army, win a game whilst destroying 50pts or more of models, win a game in under 25 minutes and so on.
At the end of the day, the final tables looked something like this:
Player Faction Points
Mike Protectorate of Menoth 21 pts (Marshall)
Chris P Legion of Everblight 15 pts
Kane Cryx 8 pts
Mitch Cygnar 8pts
Scott Mercenaries (Cephalyx) 8pts (Artisan)
Jaime Khador 7pts
Chris F Retribution of Scyrah 6pts
Bob Cygnar 5pts
Thomas Cygnar 2pts
Dutton Skorne 0pts (Iron Valour)
Big props to Dutton, not only his first event but plays a Skorne all beast 75pt list and gets the Iron Valour award - well done! :)
