With the announcement of new 40k on the way by GW, we will announce which rules will be in play as soon as we know the release date of the new rules.

The Bay Area Open is a pedigreed event and the one that started everything for Frontline Gaming. We’re pleased to announce the 7th year of this premiere 40k tournament! We’ll be at Game Kastle again this year, and will be hosting the tournament in their event center, located at 550 Showers Dr, Mountain View, CA 94040.

We’ll be reducing our total attendance to 150 from 200 this year in order to make the event more spacious and enjoyable! This also means that this event will likely sell out extremely quickly as it sold out in just over a week last year.

  • What: A Warhammer 40k Tournament
  • When: July 29th and 30th
  • Where: Game Kastle: Mountain View, 550 Showers Dr., Mountain View, California 94040
  • Why: Because 40k tournaments are awesome!

Belt of Brandon

We can’t wait to see who puts their name on the coveted Belt of Russ this year! Brandon Grant was the champ last year, who will don the belt this year?!

This will of course, be an ITC format tournament.
