Caledonian Revolution- Best Painted Army Nomination

This weekend, I attended Caledonian Revolution at Element games in Stockport. It was a great weekend, as I got to meet up with some friends from previous events and play some great games of 8th edition. I will be writing up my battle reports from the tournament and hope to have them ready for next week. 

Today though, I wanted to share with you some other awesome news. My Deathwatch army was nominated for Best Painted Army at the event. Needless to say, I was thrilled to be nominated, especially after all the effort that I have put into the Deathwatch army, and really trying to improve my painting skills with the force. Sadly, I did not place in the top three, but when I post the photos of all the nominated armies, I can understand why. There were some fantastic armies on display at the event. (Sorry for the shoddy photographs below, the tables around the armies was really busy and I didn't have long to try and get photos). 






So, I came away with a nice little prize haul; a certificate, Kromlech voucher, some Element Games vouchers, superglue, static grass and a new paintbrush. I used the Element Games vouchers to treat myself to Index Imperium 2 and some wound tracker dice. 

A big thanks to Tim King for organising the tournament and for the nomination, as well as anyone who may have voted for me, or took the time to complement me on the army over the weekend.
