Thanks to everyone that came out to participate in the Steel City Showdown, with a special thanks to Rob and the Legions Games staff.
Forty players entered but only one was left standing at the end of the day to claim the Steel City Sword, congratulations Lewis. Lewis led his Inquisitor Karamazov commanded army to three victories which earned him the top spot.
Equally important were the Best Sportsman and Best Painted. There were a lot of high sportsmanship scores but Cory was voted favorite opponent by all three of the people that he was matched up against, and he tied for second in battle points. Jason's Necrons were stunning. The players voted for Best Painted and even amidst all of the fantastic looking armies Jason's Necrons stood out, they were even featured on Games Worksop's website, http://www.games-workshop.com/gws/content/blogPost.jsp?aId=18600007a.
