Want to give a quick update concerning the Last Second Wicked GT Primer that was held this past weekend in Wichita, Kansas! We had 22 generals make it out to support and had a great time showing off the Work-In-Progress of the Best General Trophy as well as play testing some of the scenarios that we’re going to be using at the Wicked GT. Here’s a breakdown of who won what:
Overall Champion – Chad Graham (Club: Droppin’ Deuces – Army: High Elves – 3-0 record)
Best General – Joey Consetino (Army: Warriors of Chaos – 3-0 record)
Best Sportsman – Sam Stanley (Army: Orcs & Goblins)
Best Army – Alex Bade (Army: Ogre Kingdoms)
Best Appearance – Erik Wilmeth (Club: B.A.W.G.S. – Army: Ogre Kingdoms)
Congratulations to all of the winners and a huge thank you to everybody that made it out and made the weekend a success. We have great momentum going right now and we’re carrying it into May as we are only about 2 months away from the first ever Wicked GT! Make sure to visit the Midwest Gaming Alliance blog for more information as well as pictures of the tournament.
Here’s a WIP of the Best General Trophy that Chris McArthur is making for us. This one will be handed out along with 10 other trophies (not to mention the prize giveaways)! In addition to one-of-a-kind trophy you’ll also be getting lots of prize support and other things! Good luck to everybody! I know the Wicked GT is going to be great.
I also wanted to take this time to remind everybody of some important dates that are coming up, specifically that this upcoming Sunday, March 22nd the cost of the Wicked GT will go up to $65 so hurry up and pay before then! Here’s the other important dates that are getting closer:
– March 22, 2015: Anybody that chooses to sign up after this date will have to pay the inflated amount of $65. This increase is due to the fact that we have to start paying for venues, tables, and accessories in general. Please do your best to pay your $60 prior to March 22nd.
– April 16, 2015: This is the last day for refunds. If something happens after this date we regret to inform that you can no longer receive a refund. This is because the money is likely already spent in order to shore things up prior to May 15th.
– April 19, 2015: Army lists are due on this day! If you have to turn in your army list after April 19th then you will receive a -5 points to your overall score, to be applied at the end of the GT. Please do your best to get your lists in on time. There should be no reason anybody has to start the tournament down -5 points.
– Golden Toto Painting Competition – Hopefully you’re either working on a new model to enter into the Golden Toto Painting Competition or you already have something you’d like to enter. Either way, make sure to participate as we have prize support for each of the winners in 4 categories provided by Bits of War! Each winner will also receive a trophy for their win as well. Make sure to visit the Golden Toto Painting Competition Info page to find out all the rules about participating. We’re looking forward to seeing some great paint jobs as I know the Midwest has tons of great painters located right here.
Lastly, here’s a link to the Player’s Packet. All the information for the Wicked GT can be found in this packet (sans scenarios) ranging from the sponsor list, schedule, venue information, all the way to the scoring rubrics for Appearance and Sportsmanship. Scenarios are being refined as we speak and should be posted within a few days as well so you can see what you’re getting yourself into! Please make sure to visit the registration page to send your payment out! Remember, prices go up on Sunday, March 22nd so make sure to get paid up!
