Las Vegas Open 2019 40k Trophy

It is time for an upgrade to the LVO 40K trophy!

With the help of the excellent digital sculptor Nate Books (Art Station page) we decided that it was time to retire the old polygon Elvis and give him a slight upgrade. 

We started up with a digital sculpt that was then split up into smaller pieces that then could be printed.

Once everything was cut up I moved to printing. I printed it on a Peoploly Moai UV laser resin 3d printer. It makes great prints that are easy to take right to painting without much post processing. 

This picture is of the build plate with the part still attached and all the support structure.

And some of the parts with supports cleaned up and parts washed and cured.

And all put together with a marine for scale. This thing is massive! It will be getting a red/gold Khorne color scheme paint job. I will update once I start getting some paint on it.

Phoenix Open WMW Qualifier Tournament.

Phoenix Open was Sept. 5th-7th. I was recruited to help run the event along with William Rutan. We both had a great time seeing everyone and watching them test their prowess against each other!

We had a total of 44 players. The first day everyone played in the masters qualifier. Day two consisted of an eight man finals and a 35 point tournament for everyone else.

You can watch the recordings of the games here. https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLBcb8HX_6xu00cI0SmU0FA-__UUoZonLq  

Ending day one, we had eight people move onto Masters Finials.

Matthew Shoup -Khador
Jason Flanzer -Trollbloods
Kevin Rodgers -Mercs
Inyoung Whang -Khador

Going into Sundays Masters Finals was a tough field. At the end of the day Brian Marino was able to pull through for the big win. Though luckily for Dan Yount both Brian and Bret are already qualified, so the invitational ticket fell to third place. We had a TON of prize support. Over $800 for the weekend. 

I want to thank Imperial Outpost for graciously hosting the event and for providing such great prize support. Also Broken Egg games for providing $100 in gift certificates and Black Sheep Industries for $200 that were given out to random participants.
