This morning, a local Birmingham 40K player and tournament-goer lost his life to a heart attack while out for a run. I did not know him as well as some of our other local gamers (and maybe they'll be by in this thread to say a word about him), but I had the pleasure of playing against him, chatting with him a bit and seeing him around the gaming scene. I know that he was relatively young and that he leaves a family behind. Keep them in your prayers, if you would.

On Dakka he was Eldanar. In our area, he was Lee. R.I.P., Lee Guthrie.

A terrible tragedy.

Sympathies to his family and loved ones, and his toy soldier brothers-in-arms.

Any untimely death is sad of course, but something just a touch sadder when a fellow hobbyist dies. Its like a little bit of hobby dies with them.

Wherever he is now, I hope he rolls many sixes.

Look at our profits, now look at our sales, now look back at our profits. Sadly, sales numbers aren't in line with our profits, but it could be, now that we've introduced FINECAST(tm), slashed staff and raised prices. Look at my hand, its our annual report... look again, the report is now DIAMONDS. Anything is possible when you invest with GW. (I'm issuing a dividend.)

what a sad occurence. Its always sad when someone dies, but just like other have said, its especially sad when a fellow gamer dies, especially one so well-known and respected. My thoughts go out to his family and friends. RIP.

While I have never played against him, I have played around him. He seemed to be a great guy, and I know he was active in the gaming community.

This is a terrible tragedy my heart goes out to his family and friends.

News like this is always a shock.

In addition to being a member here Eldanar was a member of the Admin/Mod team on WarSeer and his input will be missed.

Just as a little backstory, the pic in the OP was taken only two weeks ago after Lee won the Alabama C.A.G.E. Match tournament. As a new player in the area I never met Lee, but heard nothing but good things about him. At least now when everyone sees the banner hanging in the store they'll be reminded of him. Glad he could go out a winner.

Today I didn't even have to use my hot-shot las; I gotta say it was a good day.

Here is a link to another thread, with some details about donating money to the family and a tournament in Lee's memory.

It is always hard to say good bye to someone is so young.

My condolences to his family and friends.

Adam's Motto: Paint, Create, Play, but above all, have fun. -and for something silly below-

"We are the Ultramodrines, And We Shall Fear No Trolls. bear this USR with pride".

Also, how does one apply to be a member of the Ultramodrines? Are harsh trials involved, ones that would test my faith as a wargamer and resolve as a geek?

You must recite every rule of Dakka Dakka. BACKWARDS.
