Why should you come?
Yes, the mainline tournament is the Invitational, but we have strived very hard to have tournaments and events that reach out to all levels of the hobby.  We don’t try to force one variation of the hobby on you.  If you like hard fought competition then try to qualify for the invitational, if you like a more casual-competitiive style then play in the open GT.  If you like themed battles and titans play in the narrative.  Lastly, if you just want to paint we have slayer sword and golden daemon winners giving their tips and tricks away all weekend in highly dedicated classes.  When your done with your events at the close of the day we will keep you busy with all sorts of ‘beer and pretzel,’ events.  If you’re in bed at 11:00 PM it isn’t because there isn’t anything else to do!
