|Blake's down on the end plotting his next move|
The tournament was 3 games at 1850 points and the scenario's were from 2009 Ard Boyz. The scenario's had at least some focus on Kill Points (KP) in every round. The first round had 5 objectives and KP, the second was modified KP, and the final round was 2 objectives and KP. Secondary objectives were awarded in each round and were typically based around keeping HQ alive while killing the opposing HQ and troop choices. Maximum primary points were awarded for a "massacre" which scored 20 points for the round to the winner and zero to the loser. Major Victory, Minor Victory, and Draw were the other outcomes that could allow for the loser to score.
The Hogs of War came away with a pretty strong showing. Dan took first overall with his Daemon army. He tied Jeremy's Cannibal Legion IG army in primary points, but won based on victory points. Both of them were able to massacre all three games. Blake brought the forgeworld Tau to their first tournament, but was only able to pull out one massacre. I brought the Doublewing Dark Angels had two games go very well getting two massacres, but my second game went very poorly, taking me out of contention for the top spots. Jeremy's IG won best painted, and Blake walked away with a tie for best sportsmanship.

|Blob IG doomed me|
When it was all said and done, I was pleased with the Hog's showing and my personal performance. I've got to really get going on the Grey Knights so I can have them ready for the next tournament. That and figure out how to beat IG between now and then.
