A beautiful location for gaming!

Awesome, themed tables!

Play against great looking armies…

…and fun opponents!

Tons of prizes!

Close to the Del Mar beaches!

There will also be discounted gaming products at the event as well including out entire Second Hand Shop which was super popular last year.

The event will occur at the beautiful Del Mar Fairgrounds in sunny San Diego county. Close to the beach and the famous race tracks, the Del Mar Fairground provide a beautiful backdrop for the event, and plenty of entertainment for non-gaming family and friends that make the trip with you. The Del Mar beaches are less than a mile from where we play, so family and loved ones can have a great time at the beach while we nerd out!  You can read about last year’s event, here.

We anticipate this event will fill up quickly, so be sure to grab your tickets early!

These will of course be ITC events and we anticipate all to be Major level events, ensuring loads of ITC points! Of course, there will also be prizes galore.

Any way we can open up more spots for the narrative event? Out of my friends I was the only one able to get a spot. We’ve never played in any sort of 40k even before. If not I’ll probably just get rid of my spot in the event. Thanks!

Does ITC still employ a power level limit on units? I thought I remember something like nothing over 30PL?

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
