All Hail the New League Champion!

After 4 weeks of slogging it out amidst countless armies on a thousand battlefields, when all is said and done, when the sound of battle and furious dice-rolling fades away, there can only be one Legio 40k League Champion for Season 1.

And that Champion, holder of the coveted Purity Seal of the Legio, is none other than Peter Cheah. All hail the Champion!

This is well-deserved, having had almost a dozen regular season games (a contender for the Fanatic Award), a top-4 LPA average, fully-painted and repped army, and then battling it out in the championships and the final game against another Chaos army (and against the elements).

The Purity Seal and the awards for Fanatic, Best Sportsmanship and Best Appearance will be given out at the ceremony to kick-off Season 2 in February. So stay tuned.

Congratulations to Peter, the award winners, the finalists and all who took part! It has been a blast taking part in this League. Looking forward to Season 2. See you guys then ...

... in the meantime, I'm breaking out my FoW Brits for the FoW League starting in a couple of weeks ...


  1. Huzzah! I render honor to Peter and congratulations to all the finalists- well done! I'm itching to get back and hobby again.... he he he

  2. so, when exactly in February would the league start? hehe :p

  3. congratulations Peter, you are the man!

  4. Vuel, check out the calendar at the bottom of the Legio blog page. I think it's 6/2/2009

  5. Yes indeed, Season 2 starts on February 6th. The new rules packet will be released fairly soon. No massive changes, but we need to tighten up the rules for repping/conversions. We also are going to allow non flyer/non superheavy ForgeWorld choices so people can use their Leman Russ Executioners, Land Speeder Tempests, Tau Tetras, etc. There will be guidelines for this of course, but we just want to give people fun hobby options.

    I'm really excited for the enthusiasm and level of participation we had for the Legio's first league. I have no doubt that we'll grow from here, and continue to have a blast with the league and other activities and events coming in 2009!

  6. Thanks Jeff + Azlan, for making this epic event possible and so much fun.

    Also special thanks to the Finals Judges for ensuring smooth and fair gameplay.

    I'm certainly looking forward to Seasn 2. Hopefully I can wrangle up the time to create + field a new list.

  7. Hehe, the finalists had big wide eyes when I revealed the vortex templates. That one moment alone made it worth all the staying up till 3-4 a.m. hehe.

  8. New lists are definitely worthwhile, especially since you can't win Best Painted more than once with the same army! Let's see if Azlan can go 2 for 2 and win Best Painted with the Ravenwing he's working on...


Please be civil in your comments- thanks!
