Congrats again to our winners, I hope this shows how close the whole thing actually was... The top 4 were separated by a single secondary objective...

I am working hard on lining up the Feast of Blades Con in November (4th, 5th, 6th).  Keep an eye out for FoB qualifiers around July-August.

Trophies are done!

Here are a couple of pictures for your viewing pleasure! These are the actual trophies we will be giving away for "best overall,""Best General," and "Best painted." The lighting in the bottom pic is a little bad, so I included a second pic to give you a better idea of the color and such. These trophies will be on top of any swag we will be giving away in GW product as well as the most awesome banner.  For an update on the banner run on over to my Buddy Jawaballs' site here.  See you all soon!

And here it goes!

SO! A few updates and reiterations are in order. IF you were planning on going to Castle Games for the qualifier round, we regret to say that they will no longer be participating. They didn't feel like they could get enough players together to justify it. BUT, Springs players still have the option of Gamer's Haven, and won't be left out.
    The fee for participation is $15. Half of this fee stays at the qualifying round for thier prize pool, and half goes to the finals for thier prize. ALL money collected this way WILL be used to pay for specific tournament needs, such as Awards, Prizes, and nessesities. ( we need to get an additional few tables and terrain for those tables. A big thank you out to the volounteers who are taking time to help keep costs down by making some of that terrain for us!)
    In addition, we have a very exciting item to raffle off at the finals, but for now that's secret (Shhh!). Money from this will go towards investing in next year's Feast of Blades, to make it as awesome as we can possibly make it.
    And just a quick recap of the Tournament format we will be using:
      The feast of Blades qualifiers will be three rounds long. Points are earned for game play, painting skill, and sportsmanship. Each tournament judge will be provided with a tournament packet containing the scenarios and tools they will need. The judge will record the results, and the Feast of Blades staff will invite the top 2 finishers overall to participate in the finals.
     A note on prizes: The prize pool for the qualifiers is going to vary based on the number of players in that tournament. Larger number of player= more loot. The judges on site will be responsible for the equitable division of any prize pool, keeping in mind that part of the prize package for first and second is an invitation and free entry to the finals. Whenever possible, prizes should be awarded to 1st and 2nd overall, Best General, and Best Painted.
     Qualifiers will be held on MArch 5th, at the following Locations:

Fort Collins
 - Gryphon Games
 - Digital Dungeon
 - Stonebridge Games
 - Karliquin Game Knight
 - Total Escape Games
 - Valhallas
 - Bonnie Brae
 - Attactix
 - Colpar Hobbies
 - Collector Mania
Colorado springs
 - Gamers Haven
  If you have any questions, please ask them, or send us an email

Paint judges

Good news! As we have been getting closer to this thing happening more and more people have been offering to help. As has been broadcast earlier Matt D. Has offered to judge our painting at the finals (matt is a golden daemon winner). Well shortly after Kirk Troy sent us an email offering up the services of the colorado miniature painting alliance. For their of you who don't know these guys are all local to coloardo and have several golden Daemons and multiple slayer swords between them. They will be traveling to the bigger stores to help the TO judge painting for the qualifiers. We are honored to have their help as well as that of Matt.

Not only have we had lots of people offer to help, but many others have offered little things here and there to help get this thing off the ground. Thank you to everyone!

Decisions, decisions

 So some of the toughest desicions we've had to make regarding all aspects of how this new tournament is going to work have at last been made. Here are the highlights:

   This is a two round tournament. one qualifyer for each participant store will be held on March 5th. The Final will be held at Stonebridge Games in Longmont two weeks after that. Each store will send it's 1st overall and 2nd overall finishers to the final. In the event that 1st or 2nd cannot attend the finals, invitations will be extended to others in the following order:
  Best General
  Best Painted
  3rd Overall
  4th Overall get the picture.

The cost for entering the Feast of Blades tournament Series is $15 per person. This fee will be shared 50/50 between the host store to pay for local prizes, and the finals staff to pay for finals prizes. Included in the prize packages for 1st and 2nd Overall at each qualifier is free entry to the Finals.

 The winner of the Finals event earns for his home store the right to display the Feast of Blades Championship Banner, bearing thier name and date of victory,  and the opportunity for thier store to host the next Finals event, in addition to whatever merchanidise and other goodies we are able to afford.

In about a month, we will be contacting each store for contact information to the person that will organize and judge the qualifying event in thier store, and we will be providing each organizer with all the tools they will need to run the event. Custom Missions, score sheets, a report card, and anything we think of that they'll need, will be included in the package. We are depending on the gaming community for this, because after, there are only two of us. :) My partner and I will be presiding Officials during the Finals, and will make ourselves available by phone should some question arise that the local organizer doesn't feel they can handle, during the day of the qualifiers.

    And that's pretty much it for now. Basic decisions have been about the details of the loot, and we've got nifty surprises for people if we can everthing to swing our way.

   Are you excited about this event? Do you have a cool idea that might make it awesome? WE'd love to hear about what gets our fellow 40k-ers stoked for a big event! Drop us a line at and help us make the Feast of Blades as good as it can be.
