And that’s a wrap, folks! The Guardian Cup is over and behind us.
It was a fun event, and I think everyone left having had a good time. I know I did! Big thanks to Guardian Games for hosting us (and again, what an amazing game store, check it out if you are in Portland) and to or very own CaptainA for running it!
When the dust settled, the juggernaut that is GTA’s Seer Council was stopped in the finals against Ben Cromwell’s (aka, Dr.Insanotron’s) Skyblight Nids! It was a good game but Ben pulled it out to win it all. Congrats and way to be Nidz! Finishing off 6th with a strong win. Skyblight is really a great tool for the Bugs and makes them able to compete in what is otherwise a pretty disappointing codex. Also, a big shout out to Ben Cromwell who challenged GTA and earned his spot on Team Zero Comp! Double win for Ben.
Best Overall went to Aventine and his Chaos/Necrons. He barely lost to GTA in the semi-finals.
Best appearance went to the heavily converted Space marines belonging to Carl. Great army.
Spam Adams got best Tau finishing 3-2-1, Frankie went 5-1, and won his bracket. InControl went 4-2, I went 3-2-1 with my Scouts and got best sportsmen in my bracket barely losing Best Space marine to Jeremy V. (The French overlord) who beat me in a barn burner of a game with his White Scars, and Raw Dogger went 2-4 with his IG.
In all, it was a great event and a great way to finish off 6th edition. We had a really good time, enjoyed Portland a lot and saw some old friends and made some new friends. I highly recommend this event for anyone that wants to go in the future. We’ll be home tomorrow, and back to work!
