Crossroads GT Recap

This past weekend was the Crossroads GT held in Elmira NY. With just over 100 people in attendance it was a fun, two day event for playing Warhammer Fantasy battles. I played 5 great games and all of my opponents were fun and engaging people. I took many pictures over the weekend but before I get into that I just want to give a shout out as to why this is one of my favorite events. The atmosphere at this event is simply amazing. There are a wide variety of well painted armies in attendance but more importantly its the players that set the mood for the weekend. Everyone just seems to get along and have fun, regardless of how the games are going for them or what armies they are matched up  against.

In many 40k events you hear complaints about meta/net lists, or how this player did that, or how there wasn't enough time to complete the game but I never hear that at this event. Mad props go to Corey Reynolds and his family and Staff for running a truly well organized event. Saturday started out a little ahead of schedule and when dice down was called there were only a hand full of tables with players still trying to finish their turns. The software used to keep track of the scores also posted the next pairings on your smart phones so while you were eating lunch you could check to see where you were going to play next and who it was going to be against. I played against 5 different armies and all of my opponents were great players and fun to play against.

Game 1 was against a Vampire Counts army played by Dave Lenox
Game 2 was versus a High Elves army played by Zach Faucher
Game 3 was against a Dwarf army played by Ryan Meier from NerdHammer.
Game 4 was against Brian Moyer's Warriors of Chaos army
Game 5 was against Nate Schultz and his Ogres
