News

  • Some incredible new models announced at the LVO studio preview:

  • The LVO 2019 has come and gone and what an event it was! We had an absolutely great time and wanted to say thank you to everyone that came to those that helped make it happen and to the FLG staff for working so hard on it.
    • We had record breaking attendance with nearly 40% growth over last year.
      • The LVO 2019 AoS Champs grew considerably as well, with 130 the day of and 160 registered. Congratz to Bill Souza who won both the ITC and LVO in one fell swoop defeating Andrew Standiford for all the marbles, who has won the LVO the past two years running.
      • You can see many of the games on our Twitch Channel.

  • The 40k Champs event was the largest there’s ever been, with 670 players showing up the day of and 740 registered.  In one of the most exciting finishes to a game I have ever seen, we had Brandon Grant playing Alex Harrison of the UK for all the marbles in both the ITC and LVO and it came down to the literal last roll of the dice in one of the most exciting finishes I have seen. The entire place exploded when Brandon was declared victorious with chants of USA, USA, USA and people just losing it! It was very cool.

  • The 40k stream went absolutely awesome with as many as 13,000 concurrent viewers watching with close to 100,000 unique viewers! It was incredible to see how popular it has become and a great job was done by Martin, Mariana, Frankie and Geoff.
  • The 40k ITC Hobby Track was also fiercely contested and many hopefuls came to try and take it all but the top spot went to Lou Rollins. Here’s a pic of his army and display board that really doesn’t do it justice. More pics inbound!

  • Shadespire and Kill Teams both had big turnouts and the Kill Team community present asked for an ITC track and we’re happy to oblige.
  • We had record attendance for almost every single event and despite the difficulties in logistics the event ran remarkably smoothly which again is thanks to the awesome team we have that makes it all happen.
  • We’ll have more pics to show everyone soon with more detailed event write-ups so stay tuned!

    Another vote for the judging being great. I used the judges twice, once to resolve a rules dispute over how to measure control of objectives and once to resolve game state for my opponent doing something incorrectly. In both cases the judge quickly applied the floor rules/ITC rules/code of conduct. If anything I should have called them once more for an opponent but until rereading the code of conduct later it did not really occur to me to call one over to deal with an opponent’s behavioral issues.

    The Castellan could use some changes but even after playing Brandon and seeing it at its best the tweaks do not necessarily need to be monstrous. Stuff like Machine Spirit Resurgent costing 2 CPs on a Dominus chassis, maybe a nerf to Cawl’s Wrath, etc.

      Glad you enjoyed yourself! And yeah, the Castellan is too strong but it doesn’t need a massive nerf or anything.
