January 4th Steamroller Results
First of all, I'm back! I may not update as often as I did in the past, but I will try to update the blog more often now. At the very least, I will be using it to post results from any tournaments that I run. Oh yeah! I finally filled out my application for Press Ganger!
I ran my first Steamroller tournament over at Gamer's Gambit in Danbury, CT on Saturday. It's a great store with truly great people in charge. I've been helping them get rolling with miniatures tables and support for the games and it's been a blast so far. The tournament on Saturday had the following rules (we were still using SR 2013 because 2014 is not official yet and I didn't have the rules):
35 point lists
2 lists required
Divide and Conquer (1)
$10 entry fee
The following scenarios were played (in order): Incursion, Destruction, Close Quarters, Process of Elimination.
Ultimately, 14 players showed up and, although 2 eventually dropped, it was a strong showing and I'm confident that we will get more players for our next tournament. The store was generous to give out $155 in store credit prize support in addition to the 1st-3rd steamroller coins! Truly we hope to have more players in the future, since it's such a fun time and highly supported by the store.
Without further ado, here are the results:
1st - Lee Horn, Menoth ($40 + coin)
2nd - Mark Guarnaccia ($30 + coin)
3rd - Daniel Guarnaccia ($20 + coin)
4th - Zack ($20)
5th - Will B ($15)
6th - Patrick ($15)
Fully-painted Raffle - Lee Horn ($15) - note: I wouldn't normally let a player double-dip but he was the only one with a fully-painted list, and he had two!
If you want to see the spreadsheet with all of the nitty-gritty data, you can find it here.
Congrats to all of our players and I hope we can get an even stronger showing in the future!
