Hey Folks... In an effort to celebrate the release of a fantastic edition of the Warhammer 40K rules set *AND* encourage folks to paint up their dead sexy GW figs, Tim Adams has decided to organize a 40K Hobby League.
Pre-made map. Mini Narrative campaign. Chaos occupied Imperial world, Imperials trying to take it back.
Games will be mix of PlanetStrike, Main Rulebook and Modified cities of Death.
The winning team is determined by battle points. Battle points are earned by winning a tile. More important tiles are worth more battle points.
Players earn battle points for their team but individual wins/losses will be tracked as well to determine league winner. The "winning team" is ultimately not important.
The "team" controls tiles but every player will have individual flag color that represents their army on the map. Battles will be organized by where a player's flag is. Veteran status will be used and tracked.
Player flags may move up to two tiles per turn. Can attack any adjacent emey tiles, and may move onto them if conquered.
After movement and attack moves are made for both sides each team may place one infrastructure on any friendly tile. The infrastructure affects friendly tiles in a radius of one.
1- Manufactorum: Player may add 100 points to army list.
2- Shield Generator: Opposing team may not initiate a planet strike game.
3- Power Station: Player may take 1 stratagem from Cities of Death in a normal game, +1 in a Cities of Death game, or +1 in Planet Strike Game.
4- Command Bastion: Player may add +1 to either who chooses deployment zone or sieze of initiative roll.
5. Special! Max one made per team. Barracks: Player gets one free squad of Codex: Imperial Guard infantry added to player army. (one squad of 10). The squad takes up 1 troop slot.
6- Special! Cannot be made. Orbital Command: Player gets one orbital bombardment (as per COdex: Space Marines) during the game. Entire tile map and its radius counts as shield generator as well.

It's time for another Warhammer 40K Tourney here at the Gopher!
Static Army - Once you choose a faction, you're stuck with it.
Static List - Once you determine a list, you're stuck with that as well. Bring three copies of this with you (One for yourself, one for the opponent you're currently facing, and one for the tourney organizer.)
Standard Force Organization
Standard Codex/FAQ - Bring these for your chosen faction. A copy of the Warhammer40K 5th edition rules wouyld be helpful as well.
Scenarios set by the Tourney Organizer
$10 Entry Fee ($5 if a member of our Warhammer 40K League)

This is a giant battle... Format (Teams/Free-For-All) will be determined based on how many and who shows up with what. However, this one will have a big difference from other Apocalypse events in the past that we've held...
NO POINT LIMIT PER PERSON...
Just bring what you have from any one faction, slam it on the table, and blast away...
Event Fee: $10 ($5 if you are a member of our WH40K League)
