Happy Friday everyone! Today I wanted to cover a recent one-day tournament I attended hosted by The Rend 4 Club based in Northeast Ohio. The event was held at their local store, Battlegrounds, in Ravenna, Ohio*. The store had an excellent set up with their product centralized between two separate rooms for Board and Card games on one side and Dedicated, specially built tables for Warhammer on the other. The shop was about a three-hour drive from my home, but I was joined by my good friend Aleks for the trip and a day of great games as we represented our club, Ligonier Legion Wargaming.
If you read the recent interview with Neil you will know he organizes The Rend 4 Club as well as most of their events. Neil really invested a lot of effort into his first Matched Play Tournament with Awards for Best in each Grand Alliance, Best Overall, Best Painted Model, and Favorite Opponent. He even brought in the Club Trophy where he has the winners name, from select events throughout the year, engraved. When Aleks and I walked in we were greeted by some familiar faces we know through the clubs Facebook group as well as everyone else we ran into as we settled in for a day of gaming. While this was an Ohio clubs event we had great representation from the Pittsburgh area with Mike and Roger from Steel City Sigmar attending as well. It was great to have locals to cheer on and talk tactics with as we attempted to invade the Ohio scene. The atmosphere was great and the credit goes to all the players. We all brought lists to be competitive but throughout the day it was evident that fun was everyone's goal.
