Event Report: NaughtyK Highlander!

Event Report: NaughtyK Highlander!

Ash Gavin

This weekend we had a twist on the classic Warhammer 40,000 tournament - the Highlander format. There can be only one! (Of each datasheet in your army*)

This bit of restriction on list building, along with a special character ban, made for a fun challenge and encouraged some units to hit the table that we don't usually see.

James vs Peter in round 2!

From Matt Blundell's Warhound Titan - the ultimate highlander army with just one unit - to Will Mott's God-Bound knights to Ethan Watmough's carpet of Tyranid gribblies there was a great spread of armies on tables, but in the end there could be only one (it's the only quote I know, OK?) 

Big congratulations to our very own Isaac Wright who took the win with his Thousand Sons.

There were some awesome hobby skills on display on the day, so much that we had to give out two hobby awards! 

The Best Themed Army award went to Will Mott for his Chaos Knights. One for each god of the warp, and an Armiger built in the image of Abaddon the Despoiler! Check these incredible conversions:

We also had to choose the best painted models in the house, and we loved Michael Cartin's Adeptus Custodes with their clean metallics, beautiful brush work and thoughtful colour scheme. Congratulations Michael!
