May 21 2021

We’ve got locations, dates, and event details for the Warhammer Road Show. US Open Series 2021 is about to launch!

If you’ve been waiting for details about the Warhammer Road Show and the US Open Series, well, let’s get right into it. 6 events, 3 cities, and a whole lot of tabletop gaming ahead!

The Games

The Warhammer 40,000 Grand Tournaments will have 256 player spots available and will use missions and rules from the most current Grand Tournament mission pack. After four rounds, all players will be bracketed into pods of 16 players with an equivalent record, ensuring the remaining rounds are played with their most closely matched opponents. Each tournament will include three rounds on Friday and three rounds on Saturday, with two bracketed Final Rounds on Sunday.

The Warhammer Age of Sigmar Grand Tournaments will have 128 player spots available, and will use missions, pairing, and scoring formats from the soon-to-be-released new edition of Warhammer Age of Sigmar! Each tournament will include three rounds on Saturday and three rounds on Sunday.”

That’s a LOT of spots for folks but I have a funny feeling those might get sucked up pretty quick!


Each event will present two equal top awards – one for the player with the best overall record (any ties will be broken by the quality of their competitive performance), and the player with the best combined paint and competitive score. Numerous other awards will be presented for categories such as army painting, bracket wins, and runner-up finishes.”


Grand Tournament Series Final

“The top two players from each Grand Tournament will be invited to attend the Grand Tournament Series Final – that makes six players for Warhammer 40,000 and six for Warhammer Age of Sigmar. The final event celebration is slated to take place at the Warhammer Citadel in Grapevine, Texas, on December 4th and 5th.  “

This seems like a change of venue from the LA location. But it’s still at a Warhammer Citadel store.

Now let’s get to the BIG stuff:
