Massive Vendor Hall – That’s right, with our new hotel, you can expect to see a full fledged vendor hall jam packed with all your favorite companies, and wargames suppliers.
Warmachine and Flames of War – Both are back in their three day all weekend event tracks. Flames of War will include the Early War Nationals Invitational, while Warmachine now includes after-hours “Up-All-Night” madness for the truly hardcore. So all you fans come on down and spend the entire weekend with us!
Our Warhammer Fantasy Grand Tournament returns with 2500 points with 2.5 hour rounds.
Our Narrative Tables will be bigger with more players per table. We are doing the Eye of Terror using the Forces of Disorder under command of a mighty Chaos Warmaster attempting to smash asunder the Imperium’s Cadian Gate. Our second theme is the Battle of Piscina IV – that means Greenskins everywhere, forming a massive Waaagh that threatens to overrun the Space Marine and Imperial Guard defenders. Its gonna be an Apocalyptic blast – oh, and don’t forget about all the flyer, superheavy, and Titan goodness! ~Ive heard talk of giant airplanes, and Orky submersibles!
The 40K Mirror Match is a concept so good, it had to return for its second year – if we all played the same list, who would win? This year we’ve created a new Chaos Space Marine list that gives players a chance to find out who is the best with it on Friday. Missions will be very simple, and the winner will be strictly determined by winning games. This event is limited to 32 players; with everyone playing the first 4 games and the finals being for all the marbles. So who REALLY is the Warmaster?
