  • 12:04 pm PST, Warhammer 40k coverage

We have a dizzying amount of information to give you guys, and the LVO is well on it’s way! Check in on our facebook page for live video feeds of the event, and to catch some of the fun action. For now i’m going to just give a quick update in the 40k champs. Currently our top 10 players managed to avoid each other, so we won’t have any guaranteed early heartbreaks round 1. However, there are some very interesting matchups still! Round 1 features two great games between phenomenal players with Aaron Aelong playing our very own Geoff “Incontrol” Robinson, and Joshua Death playing William Abilez, a player who made the top 8 at the LVO last year with a great meta-busting Tau list. I couldn’t call either of these games as both come down to who plays the best, and rolls the worst.

Another special player I want to highlight is Ben Mohlie. Widely regarded as one of the best players in 40k history (by the best 40k players in 40k history) Ben is piloting the “Mona Lisa” of Ork lists. I would suggest taking a look at it in the BCP player app.

Don’t forget to follow along live on Twitch and our Facebook page for more LVO action!

Some other quick news, our Infinity tournament hit a record high 50ish players, and is considered one of the largest infinity tournaments in the world. The Warhammer Underworlds Shadespire Grand Clash just hit it’s stride and is shaping out to be a gud un’ (it’s dominated by Ironjawz players)

    Important players without lists up on BCP:
    Mitchell Pelham
    James Carmona
    Brad Chester(can’t see half of the list)

    Astra Militarum gets nerfed “wtf, why nerf wtf”. Still about 1/3 or even 1/2 of the 3:0 players have Astra militarum. Yeah… Mortar teams and Primaris Psykers are still reaaaaally stupid…
    Same things with Brimstones. They took such a pounding but are still in a lot of top lists. Proving just how BS they were…

      Enh, people play what they have. It’s a miniatures game. Even if something gets nerfed you can’t just snap your fingers and summon newly assembled and painted models. I’m sure there will be quite a bit of sub optimal stuff out there simply due to time and availability. The real test will be too see what wins after four or five rounds.

    I looked through the top 60 lists, armies that won their first three games. There’s so much Eldar. And a lot of chaos. And most Imperial lists include an Astra Millitarum detachment.
