News

  • GW released a new Chaos Deamons FAQ, how many FAQs are left? They also gave customers the option to ask one single question before the FAQ is finalized on their Facebook page. Could this mean the final draft is incoming?
  • There were two ITC events within the last week that were reported. “The Battle for the Wooden Spoon” and “The Capital City Blood Bath GT“. If you are a TO who just recently organized a large ITC event I want to hear about it! Send an email over to frontlinegamingpeteypab@gmail.com. Look for upcoming articles covering both events.
  • The Iron Halo GT annouced one of the big prizes they are giving away at their event. A battle of Hoth Terrain set, complete with F.A.T. Mat. If you would like a chance to win this terrain set head over to their page by clicking the link here to sign up!battle of Hoth

    Important note – that “literally every upgrade because War Convo” is me being lazy in transcribing the list. This is the same list that Dan ran at ETC (and is only 3 detachments), so I guarantee what he used is legal even if I did not transcribe it properly!

    Funny as always guys! Also, have you gotten the results for Gencon yet? It’s been a while and thought I should ask before I email the TO.

      I would reach out to the TO. It should be something that is automated through best coast pairings.

        They did not use best coast pairing for the event. They went paperrrrr. Stalker email or fan boy? So many choices lol

    Hey thanks for the shout out guys! This is Dan from CCBB. I had to chew through some pretty serious lists but I tried to make this version of War Convo work for all comers (and for new GW faq).
    Started with Tau (two Surge, Riptide wing, Void shield), Eldar (51 Spiders, WK, Bikes), Tyranids (4 Flyrants, 4 Mawlocs), Eldar (6 D batteries, WK, Bikes), Taudar (Surge, Riptide wing, 4 Scat bike squads) and an Imperial Deathstar (Guard blob, Tiggy Libby Conc, Grimnar’s War Council).

    Here’s a slightly more complete list with most of the relevant equipment listed:

      Theres also a problem of legality: The way the War Convocation’s “Might of Adeptus Mechanicus” and fortifications upgrades are worded, it seems that options for fortifications arent free.

      But then again, if your TO allowed this then its a moot point.

        ….OORRRR you can disregard my comment. I misread the list and saw 2x Sydonian Dragoons. Whoops! 😀
