Are you new to 40k? Have you been away from the hobby for a while? Do you like competitive games, but hate bringing a knife to a gunfight? Is having a close, tough fight more important to you than winning? If you answered yes to any of the above, then this is the tournament for you!
This tournament doesn’t aim to use comp to restrict what type of army you bring, but rather we give guidelines and review the lists ahead of time to ensure that the armies are about the same level, not beatstick, but not without some fangs. This is a 3 round, 1500 point Matched Play tournament. Missions will be posted early, and you will be using tactical objectives provided to you in at least 2 of the missions. Objectives will be the primary focus of 2 missions, and 1 will focus on kill points. Expect one movement type mission, one take and hold type mission, and one bloodbath.
Rounds will be 2.5 hours, and this event will run 8a-7pm on Sunday.
