I had the opportunity to look in on the Death Or Glory tournament at the Best Western Southfield this past weekend. Motor City Mayhem 2022 was one of the circuit of wargames tournaments hosted by Death or Glory over the course of the year. The tournament was a nine-round, three day long event featuring Warhammer 40K. There were other subjects covered as well; Bolt Action and Age of Sigmar both had tournaments over the weekend. The sheer energy of such a large event was impressive, as were the vast number of beautifully painted armies in play. Most impressive of all were the army display bases. Some players must have spent nearly as much time modelling the bases as they did assembling their armies.
Despite it being a tournament with some seriously big prizes for top finishers I never saw anything aside from enthusiasm and energy. I will be attending next year.
