News

  • Genestealer Cults are on the way!

  • And of course, the big news is Sanguinius on the way! 1635 Archangel Michael defeating Satan. By Guido Reni from the Baroque period.

  • The Las Vegas Open 2019 is nearly upon us! Here’s some helpful info for you.
    • Make sure to bring chap-stick and lotion! It is the desert and you will get dried out. Drink plenty of water to avoid the cherry red lips of those that get dehydrated.
    • Make sure to have everything you need to play, dice, measuring tapes, army list, books, etc.
    • The deadline for rules questions/conversion approval is this Friday the 1st of February.
    • The deadline to get ITC events uploaded/corrected is Monday the 4th of February at midnight EST.
      • Next season, we are rolling out a 30 day window to submit scores or get corrections on scores.
    • The hard deadline for AoS list submission is Sunday the 3rd of February. Players that fail to upload by then will begin the game with a Yellow Card foul.
    • We’ve got over 90% of the 40k list uploaded but a few folks are still trying to get it worked out.
      • We set up a forum with the common errors which you can see here, where you can also ask questions of the BCP guys to get you helped out.
      • The vast majority of errors are just formatting errors, you have to be very precise for the script to read your list.
      • Again, you cannot play until your list is correctly formatted and uploaded, so don’t let it slide or you will be a very sad panda.
    • If you received a ticket transfer, make sure to check in under the person’s name you got the ticket from to speed up the registration process as their name will be in the system as the holder of the ticket with notes on the transaction as to whom the ticket was transferred to.
    • Early reg opens up at 5pm on Thursday, you want to get their and get it done early to avoid lines the day of the event.
    • Make sure to get your Convention Badge ahead of time! Don’t get stuck waiting in line the day of.
    • Can’t wait to see everyone there!

    You’ve spent all these weeks preparing terrain and logistics, but did you prepare your liver?

    Thanks for the link to setting up a league, I’ve been thinking about doing it for ages and will definitely get in touch with those guys to help me get started.
    Topically, I live in Adelaide – kudos for giving us a shout out. I might aim to get to the LVO 2020 and convince you guys to take me out for a Fosters and a outback steak. Sounds like you’re cooking with steam there.

    Good luck with the LVO, hope it goes smoothly for you guys. If you’re considering a patreon then maybe you should get each itc event to contribute $1 or similar.
