    In before Rob Butcher tries to claim this tourney doesn’t count since it’s not held at warhammer world.

      Of course, that means that they can’t legally call themselves a tournament. GW holds the IP on tournaments of all kind, so this unofficial competitive gathering means nothing.

        Hello Friends, it is I, Robert Butch and you are already Too Late!

        For I have checked with W**hamm*er W*rld and they are already filing one hundred million dollars of the lawsuits in your Earth courts against this very web sight! And I, personally, have aimed my Deadly Destructo Beam at the venue of This Event to destroy it from existence.

        Furthermore, I would like to remind you all that Numbers such as Elev*n are used in some unit Datasheets and may not be Reproduced without Express permission of G*mes W*rksho*. Please remove the offending Articles of confederation Immediately or I will be Forced to make further P*sts.

    Solid episode!

    I was glad you quickly pointed out marines winning wasn’t exactly news worthy as I actually rolled my eyes when I heard!

    1 primaris lieutenant per codex also sounds like a pretty accurate number 😀

    Pessimist take that GW doesn’t adequately plan and that leads to craziness seems unfortunately quite likely, but I like Brandon’s idea that perhaps the plan is for an even playing field. The 8th failure wasn’t that marines were OP from the get go, more that they weren’t great.

    One can hope!
