Top Three AoS Lists from Burning Skies

The Battle of Burning Skies was an 20 player one-dayer event run by Savage Hammer Gaming and Greetings from the Warp. Local to myself and Declan we felt we both would love to attend this, unfortunately I was struck down by Grandfather Nurgle on the morning of the event.
