The Heroes club table won best theme, the Jawa Banner won best banner, Chris Borer's Steel Legion Master of Ordinance won a Demon.

The Heroes of Armageddon Club Table.

Bloggers, John (Me/Santa Cruz Warhammer), Brian (InnerGeek), John (Drathmere/40kHobby Blog) Brian(Gentilemans Ones)

Some of the painting crew, Jawaballs, Alex "Red Beard" Kallend, Kirill "Mad Russian" Zhilkov, Dave Taylor, Chris Borer, Cho.
Cho blew us away and won a Silver Demon, against some very tough competition, his best showing yet, look out for him next year.

Brian (the Table Guy) closes the deal on an additional $600 donation for one of the tables.

Kirill'sYarrick in the Golden Demon Contest display, this amazing model made the final cut in a very tough class.

  5. The pics don't do the armies or the table justice. I had a great conversation with John about the painting and work of the armies and table. I wish I could have taken the other half of the table home, but I did win one of the fantasy realm of battle boards. Class act work guys I'm already saving up to donate next year.
