About a month to go until Death Before Dishonor and preparations are going into full swing.
Not sure if anyone on Dakka has signed up but if so... VERY SOON I will reach out to you individually to update you on the army list submission process and soft/hard deadlines.
I thought I'd share a post about the prizes and sponsorship we have organised, and shed some light on some of the things people might walk away with.
First on board was Element Games, who are hosting the tournament. They don't really need much introduction as they are one of Europe's leading web retailers of wargaming stuff... but for those of us fortunate enough to live close by... walking in there for the first time is like being a kid going into Hamleys in London. You just can't believe how much cool stuff there is there, and how big the gaming space is.
Element will be providing store credit and some other prizes from their "Element Essentials" range to a number of winners which you can eitehr use there and then or on the website.
After Element, the next sponsor to come on board was Gamemat.Eu. I approached them because I use their products myself and know they are great quality. I'm excited to say that we have 3 of their incredible 6x4 neoprene game mats to give away... plus a one of their "Badlands" terrain sets.
In fact... the top table will be using the "Sands of Time" GameMat.eu mat and Badlands scenery which the tournament winner will be able to take home (or have delivered if you walked there, I guess!)
Yep, by winning at the top table you will literally win the top table
* Cool, right?
Our other two sponsors are Versatile Terrain and Dark Fantastic Mills. Both are one-man organisations who had a 3d printer and a great idea... but then did the actual hard part by executing on the idea, and are getting amazing results.
Versatile Terrain are best known for their model name plates, which have taken games like Kill Team and Adeptus Titanicus by storm. Having gorgeous scroll-like names in a variety of fonts and styles on the bases of your Captains, Commanders, Knights, Titans and other favourite models is just brilliant.
With the vouchers we're awarding you should be able to take your already awesome army up one more notch.
Dark Fantastic Mills started by making high-fantasy scenery for Age of Sigmar but I believe they are braching out into stuff designed for 40k
in 2019. Some of the detail they are getting on their scenery is breathtakingly impressive, which some of our winners can buy with vouchers.
They are our trophy manufacturers as well, and I know people will be really excited to take those home.
There is one "Top Prize" for the player with the highest combined Painting, Gaming and Sportmanship score across the whole event. We have a pretty epic trophy on order for this and the lucky winner will also get vouchers and other prizes too.
Even if you aren't one of the winners, all attendees will get a unique discount code for our sponsors, to help you get their products for a great price.
Can't wait for the 9th of Feb!

* The Gamemat.eu parts of it anyway - we will have to top it up with other scenery bits for extra LOS
. You probably can't steal those. Sorry.
