Once again we were overwhelmed by the quality and variety of the games brought to our show. Thanks to all the people who put in stupendous amounts of work to make such a good display.
These are the games that caught the eye of our judges.
The Best Participation game trophy went to Bill Jennings, for his Sharp Practice Napoleonic game.
The Best Demonstration trophy was awarded to Ian Rowe and His Ghost Archipelago team, for their stunning Pirates versus Natives and Monsters game.
Despite some competitions having to be scratched for lack of support, there were still four tournaments, with around 80 players. Special thanks to the various Umpires, without whom these competitons would not be possible.
A staple at PAW shows since the first one we ran in 2000, there were over 40 players this year, with a marvellous selection of armies on display. Here are the placings and other awards:
- 1st Place - Lee Caselli using Aeldari
