Hobbyists met Sunday, March 23rd at HobbytownUSA Dallas to complete one of the most unique and satisfying Lucky 13s Apocalypse Campaign events yet--and the Mordant 13th Imperial Guard High Command Group was an enormous success! 19 of the 20 possible models were claimed by participants--and an impressive 16 of those 19 hobbyists delivered on their commitment, arriving on the day with a contribution to the retinue of Lucky 13s Colonel Jago Kallowen which excelled all expectations across the board!
Counting participants, interested hobbyists present, and HTUD staff, 23 ballots for 'Favorite Model' were collected; 11 of the 16 models received at least one vote, suggesting the broad quality across the submissions. Five models received more than one vote: Bob Westbrook's Mastervox Operator collected two to take Third Place, and three hobbyists tied for Runner-Up with three votes each--Vincent Headrick's Staff Officer, Bill Zalman's Standard Bearer, and Matt Mayer's High Commander Colonel Kallowen himself! The winning model, collecting six votes, was Ogryn Bodyguard Ognot Plasma-Face, created by Aaron Wheatcraft!
Thanks to Games Workshop and the staff of HobbytownUSA Dallas for contributing two 40K boxed sets and three randomly-awarded 40K model blisters as prize support--and thanks and congratulations to all 16 participants who earned their Lucky 13s Event Stamp by delivering on their commitments to make this event a tremendous success. Get by HTUD to see the High Command on their display base in the cabinet in the Games section...or come view their battlefield trial-by-fire against the Great Devourer in Saturday's second Lucky 13s campaign mega-battle in the HTUD Game Hall, 'Not On My Watch!'
