- GW has been previewing some of the cool models that are on the horizon including the fabled Zoat!
- GW continues to preview more of the very exciting Warhammer: The Old World they’ve been teasing and it looks like it will be a Forgeworld product most likely. They’re showing us Kislev which has always been one of the coolest parts of the lore IMO.
- We’ve also got a brand new FLG Mat for you and it is being offered at a discount during the release period which runs through April 8th, 2020! Take a look at Toxic Desert!
Upcoming ITC Events
ITC Season Update
- With Papa Nurgle currently giving the world a big hug, we’ve altered our policy on how the ITC season will proceed for the near term.
- We’ve pulled all ITC event tokens, meaning no one can submit an event for a ITC points right now to help ensure the safety of our community.
- To have your event reissued a token, contact your closest ITC Regional Rep who, working closely with and supported by the entire global community of ITC TOs and ITC Administrative staff, will verify the event follows local guidelines and is safe to run, which if so, will be reissued their event token. What this means in application is that for most of the ITC hot spots right now, Europe, the USA and UK, the season is paused for tournaments.
- However, as the ITC is a global circuit that lasts effectively all year, we need to be flexible enough to allow different regions to adapt to the situation relative to where they are located. For instance, events in Asia seem likely to be able to resume before events in places like the UK which is experiencing COVID on a different timeline. We want people that are finally able to come out of isolation to be able to start playing and blowing off steam as soon as it is deemed safe to do so for them. The last thing we want to do is tell someone that’s been in self-quarantine for months that now that they can finally play again, they have to wait until a country on the other side of the world comes out of quarantine as well which could be months after them.
- This system will allow us to flexibly adapt to local situations with the help of those in each region to be safe and continue to participate as much as we can. It’s important to keep in mind that this system is being implemented less with keeping the season “fair” in regards to region vs. region scoring potential than it is to be empathetic and fair to those going through this crisis on different schedules and to provide support to one another as we get this business behind us.
- We’re also working on implementing a global hobby track competition to reward everyone getting their hobby on at home but unable to go and show off their hard work! Stay tuned for more details as we work out the technical aspects of how to make it work.
- Thanks to the community of TOs willing to put in the work and effort to make this possible!
