40K Army Meta: Twilight of 5th Edition

WargamesCon 2012 has come and gone.  Lets take a moment to see where we stand at the twilight of 5th Edition.

With nearly 200 Warhammer 40,000 Grand tourney attendees, here is the army breakdown we saw:

First of all, lets take a look at what it looked like after Adepticon here.

You will notice the top armies are all still heavily represented, but without the overwhelming emphasis on Grey Knights. Perhaps some have just gotten bored of the Scions of Titan, or the community at large has gotten better at dealing with them.

As the final cherry on top of the end of 5th edition I would like to present the top eight placing armies at the event.  You’re all gonna love this one:

1st: Orks
2nd: Necrons
3rd: Chaos Daemons
4th: Necrons
5th: Necrons
6th: Tau
7th: Grey Knights
8th: Sisters of Battle

This is where we sit ladies and gentlemen.  Ahead of us is the unknown of 6th Edition.  It will be interesting to see where the community will be six months from now.

Have at it folks.
