Brett Charge – Ming Lee

Corehammer’s first Warhammer tournament, Ill Blood, went off with a bang this past weekend at Dark Sphere in the heart of London. The Corehammer crew ran its first one day event with plaudits coming from both attendees and venue for holding such a successful first event, that had a solid attendance and a great atmosphere. Huge thanks goes out to everyone who made the event such a solid day of hobby chilling!

First up want to say a huge thanks to the Corehammer team, Stevie, thanks for putting this event on!
Nicely run event and an awesome crew!

Best sports was also well contested with most of the field taking at least 1 best game, 4 players taking 2 best games and Ming Lee & Chris Tomlin (of The Black Sun) being their opponents favourites in all 3 games. To decide on the victor, a dice off occurred with Ming Lee victorious.

Maniac Bastards - Skullcrushers - Adam Cunis

Coolest army was well represented, however it was clear that Luke Lane’s Dwarves, Adam Cunis’s Warriors of Chaos were popular choices, but the peoples champ, Ming Lee swung it by a handful of votes (see the top picture and Ming Lee’s twitter).

I also just want to shout out again, Kieron, Steve and Alex for helping out all day, sorting rules questions and running around getting results. Another big shout out to Dan and Marc for their help on the day, Andy for his prep the night before and the rest of Dark Sphere for letting us run the event in their store, the use of their terrain and general patience with me and 24 Warhammer players.

Cheers
Stevie
