Sheffield Slaughter 2019 Results

Hey all, a very quick post with the results of the Sheffield Slaughter 2019, the longest-running UK Warhammer event, going 22 years and counting. Pete and Ady of the Dragon Slayers put on a great event, attended by over 70 players and with a strong prevalence of new Skaven and Flesh-Eater Courts.

Age of Sigmar

Sheffield Slaughter 2019

The Sheffield Slaughter was held once again at the Davy Sporting Club, Prince of Wales Road, Sheffield on the weekend of 23/24 February 2019.

5 games of 2000 points Age of Sigmar. The event used realmscape features, and the signature command and spells from each realm (i.e. not the full set if realm spells).

You can check out the tournament pack and the event card (for scoring).

Sheffield Slaughter 2019 Coverage

The weekend was streamed and covered by the Honest Wargamer with guest commentary from Adam of AngelCast (the London-based AoS podcast). Not only were they covering the top tables, but they also streamed the adventures of one player throughout the tournament (who I believe finished 39th). Its great seeing the developments in streaming coverage with more options and more match-ups being covered.

You can watch back all the coverage, for free, on the Honest Wargamer Twitch channel.

Ben’s list was a Royal Menagerie, all the big beasties, Gristlegore Flesh-Eater Courts build.

3rd James Tinsdale – Idoneth Deepkin

James has been having sustained success with his Deepkin. He really shows he knows how to use that army.
