The award for Best Overall (Renman) player at the First Annual Indy Open went to...
Mike Kephart's Grey Knights!
Mike took Renman with this beautiful army and a 5:1 win record over both days. Good job Mike!
Here's the top ten overall scores. I don't have a list of the armies each played.
- Hans Krueger, wwwwww, 77 (Awarded Best General)
- Mike Kephart, wlwwww, 74 (Awarded Renman)
- Joe Adams, wwlwwl, 72
- Phillip French, wwllww, 71
- Johnny Rockstar, wlwwlw, 69
- Hulksmash, wwlwww, 68
- Chad Nicholson, lwlwlw, 67
- Dustin Brinson, wwwwlw, 65
- Ted Crawford, lwlllw, 65
- Matt Baugh, lwwwlw, 64
Interestingly, if we had allowed multiple awards per player, Hans would have won both Best General and Best Overall (He's just that good!). In fact, if we compare the top 10 Renmen with the top 10 Best Generals...

We see a lot of overlap! Six players showed up in both lists. Which means, to me, that we had a very strong showing in players that are good at both the game and hobby aspects of 40K. That's pretty special!
Also interesting was that some people thought Mike hadn't finished his Dreadknight. A few players were actually upset that he'd won with an 'unfinished' model.
Don't be silly guys! The reason the blades look like they're glowing is because the rest of the model was painted so dark. It's a deliberate color design choice. If you look in the dark areas, you'll see that there is plenty of detail. But it's subtle so that your attention isn't taken away from the pilot and the blades.
You're looking at a Master who knows his color! :)
