What constitutes a 'large' tournament? The "Fields of Blood" event hosted annually by GW (and advertised on the site) is NI's largest sanctioned tournament, as close as we get to our own GT. I haven't won it...but I wonder if it should be listed in the OP?

It's just occurred to me that the Tourney I won in February was Sanctioned...but may not have been advertised on the Website...I'll check, but if not, does in-store advertising count? Probably not, and it wasn't in the style of a GT or anything either, 'twas more of a League Campaign.

If you have details of a worthy tournament, or want to ask if a placing by you at a particular tournament counts, the best thing to do is post as much as you can in this thread and/or contact Jezlad by PM.

Its not for me to say yay or nay on if that will count for Laurels of Victory, but adding those pictures to the Tournements Gallery section will earn you some Rep.

any chance we could get 'Ard Boyz tournaments approved for the Laurels of Victory Medal?

i thought they were sanctioned GW events, and by looking at the army list boards, there are a lot of people getting ready for them within the next month.

also, per the PDF file sent by my event organizer, 07-11-09 are the qualifiers, regionals are on 08-08-09, and finals are in the Chicago Battle Bunker 09-19-09.

just so any one can read it, i've attached the PDF.

I placed first in the 'Ard Boyz preliminaries. They gave the same certificate to the three top placers, so all I have to prove that I got first is the loot I got. Pictures of the certificate with my name (my username is my last name) and a picture of the 60$ worth of loot (first place got 60$ worth of GW stuff) is attached. (it's 2 gretchin boxes priced at 15$ ea., a killa kan priced at 22$, and a pair of striking scorpions priced at 7.99$)

Not sure if you're counting 'Ard Boyz but I did whoop a bunch of people in a GW-sanctioned tournament
