Warhammer Fantasy – Our Warhammer Fantasy Grand Tournament returns with 2500 points with 2.5 hour rounds.
Horus Heresy Narrative – Our Heresy Narrative tables will be bigger with more players per table. We are doing the Horus Heresy: Betrayal so grab your Forgeworld book, paint up your Legion and choose your side. Look for loyalty, craven betrayal, and shifting allegiances. Its gonna be an Apocalyptic blast – oh and don’t forget about all the flyer, superheavy, and Titan goodness!
The 40K Mirror Match is a concept so good, it had to return for its third year – if we all played the same list, who would win? This year we’ve created a new Chaos Space Marine list (unveiled soon) that gives players a chance to find out who is the best with the new Codex 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?
UPDATE: MORE GAME SYSTEMS COMING – That’s right – several more of your favorite Wargaming companies are coming down to WargamesCon in Austin to hold tournaments for even more new game systems. Announcements soon.
Texas sized Prizes! – YEE HAW! Look for all manner of Texas themed awards and prizes this year. So all you cowboys and cowgirls get on your horse and head for Austin!
Book your room soon!
