I just picked up my prize from winning the Ardboyz' Semi-final Round and have to say I was pleasantly surprised. I picked Skaven, mainly because I've been playing DEs and WoC for the past 8 years and want to try a 'horde' army. Anyway, I got the following 3K points army from GW:

2 Battalion Boxes
2 StormVermin Boxes
2 Nightrunner Regiments
2 Rat Ogres/Giant Rats boxes
2 Doomwheels
4 Warp lightning Cannons/Plagueclaws
2 Doomwheels
2 Screaming Bell/Plague Furnaces
1 HellPit Abomination

A pretty good haul, over $800 retail. I would have preferred more clanrats and less warmachines, but I really can't complain.

I'm curious what army other guys picked and what you got!

I got mine as well. Off the top of my head I got:

I picked Empire

1 battalion box
1 box of knights
1 box of helstorm/helblaster
2 empire general boxes
2 wizard boxes
2 state troop boxes
1 militia box
2 outrider/pistollier boxes
2 greatsword boxes
1 handgunner box
2 flagellant boxes

No cannons, which I thought was odd . Still pretty sweet to see that much free Warhammer stuff :D

No hellpits :(

I did get one, forgot to put it in the list. Edited it now.

I did not get a single character model, which is fine with me but I thought surprising.

Off topic but do Uk GW events get tournament prizes or is this just a US thing and why dont we have an ard boyz circuit in the Uk is it a lack of player base?

That's really terrible of GW to do that to armies with less plastics, lol.
