LGT AoS Championship – top lists and results

Hey all, a quick post with the results, awards and top lists from the London Grand Tournament AoS Championship held over 19-20 May 2018.

Darren Watson continued his good run of form from the South Coast GT last weekend to upgrade his 3rd place on the South Coast to a 1st place in London.  Jack Armstrong and Dan Ford also continued their recent success.  You can get out my South Coast GT post for more details.

The event was held at London’s Olympic Stadium as part of an absolutely massive multi-system convention.  Now, I know the overall convention had some serious issues with massive queues through security and frankly abysmal tables in the 40k event, all of which are worsened by the high ticket price, but I’ve only seen positive things about the AoS tables.  I won’t say any more about the event as a whole in this post, I wasn’t there, but it would be great to see a large multi-system convention be successful in the UK.

The LGT AoS Championship Pack

The event was a five round 2,000 point matched play tournament using General’s Handbook 2017, a Win / Loss / Draw scoring system and with some additional in-game quests as the first tiebreaker.  Its definitely worth checking out the quests and the table terrain layout maps.

The pack, including all the details on army composition and missions, can be found here.  If you want to hear more, check out my interview with the TO Tom Loyn and Jack Armstrong.

  1. Was at the Grand Tournament, and the AOS was pretty great. While security was high (the Rolling Stones are playing the same venue on Tuesday) the staff running the AOS did an awesome job of keeping things moving at a good pace, and many of the issues with security slowing down entrance on Saturday were rectified by Sunday. The space was a little cosy, but well lit and airy.

    Everyone playing seemed to be having a blast and was friendly and talkative to those bystanders like me who wanted to know more about their army choices. Meanwhile the standard of painting of the AOS armies was very high indeed, even for those who didn’t get a painting nomination. Special kudos to Matt Hinton, who placed 7th having done an all-nighter to paint up 15 eels for his Idoneth Deepkin when they got released 10 hours before round one. Bonkers.
