Liveblogging the 40K 'Ard Boyz

The 2010 40K 'Ard Boyz tournament started at 11 a.m., later than I'd wanted but on the whole it worked out as two players ran late. A total of 10 ore in the back room whomping on each other. Updates as they are reported.

1:47 p.m.
After the first round, Eric is in first place with 18 points, Mike is in second with 17. Everyone else is hovering back around 11 points. Now we're on lunch break.

2:47 p.m.
Lunch completed, the second round just started.

4:03 p.m
Matches currently see-sawing back and forth, except for Nick and Chad, which is tilting towards Nick in a big way.

5:11 p.m.
Getting ready to start round 3. Currently, Lucian and Eric are neck and neck for first place, with sames a strong second and everyone else bunched up back in the pack.

6:54 p.m.

Eric and Mike are pretty much tied in their game. Nick is removing many of Larry's figures. James is beating up on Philip and while the number of figures on the board looks even, Lucian looks ready to unleash a world of hurt on Chad.

8:45 p.m.

This year's 'Ard Boyz wraps up with Mkie Kephart's Space Marines taking overall honors, followed by James Cox's Space Marines and Chad LaMontagne's Space Marines (again). Nick Hollowman's Tau Forces took fourth place, Eric Jacquot fielded Orks into 5th place. Lucian Kline's Space Wolves took 6th, Philip Gibbs took 7th with Chaos Space Marines and Larry Snodgrass finished up with his Black Templars. A good time was had by all and we hop to have a Warhammer Fantasy Battle 'Ard Boyz later this year.

That wraps the tournament up. Glad everyone had a good time.
