Well the dust has settled once more after the marathon weekend of gaming that is Britcon. I’m sure many don’t see it that way, but you try playing 3 4,000 point games in one day, starting at 08:15 ;)
Eight players signed up this year and the decision was made to run the event as round robin. Players were then seeded and the round were number one played number eight was dropped. This ensured no players had to play each other twice as would have been likely in a normal swiss event.
With a good mix of races the competition was fierce… well ok… maybe one player did run away with the competition, and in doing so took the overall Britcon winner award for dropping the fewest points across all his games. Four players were in the running for the other podium places going into the last round.
Gavin managed to take his double revenant biel tan list into third, and I can tell you it’s a pretty fearsome list to play against, losing only one game all weekend.
Joe maneuvered his codex marine list into second, with no spaceship in sight!
But it was Richard and his Krieg army that stormed into first, winning all six games and only dropping a tiny 15 points our of the 192 on offer! Truly grinding all before him under his relentless gorgons.
The win leaves Richard standing tall in the championship standings too, with two events left to come.
Thanks to all the players at the weekend for making Britcon the amazing event it is every year. Thanks to the BHGS for hosting us.
Bring on Britcon 2015!
