In addition to GW’s Planetstrike product launch on July 4, many Games Workshop stores and independent retailers will be hosting Planetstrike hobby events that day to give everyone a chance to test out the new scenery and expansion rules.
For example, GW’s Maryland Battle Bunker & HQ will be hosting The Battle Of Cold Steel Ridge, a massive mega-event pitting players against a Tyranid Hive army of more than 25,000 points! Rally your troops, prime your weapons, set your fuses and prepare for war. This game will combine Planetstrike with Apocalypse over ten large game tables for one of the largest Battle Bunker game events ever held by GW in the US. Similarly Planetstrike-themed events will take place in stores all over North America that day. Please contact your local game store for information about specific events in your area.
I’m looking forward to playing a lot of Planetstrike. My Chaos and Dark Angel armies both have massive amounts of Terminators and my new Space Marine army will have at least a half-dozen Drop Pods in it. Like Apocalypse, Planestrike should really allow people with large collections of models to give them a good showing on the game table.
