Gunslinger Games will let North Texas hobbyists put their 40K Christmas presents on the game table Saturday, January 12, 2013, by hosting a Warhammer 40,000 6th Edition Combat Patrol Tournament!
Interested players of all experience levels are welcome--in fact the Combat Patrol format is particularly effective for players new to the hobby:
•Armies of 400 Points or less.
•One core TROOPS choice mandatory.
•One HQ choice optional (patrol leader may be a squad upgrade such as a veteran sergeant).
•No Characters, Monsters or other unit types with more than 2 Wounds.
•No Vehicles with combined Armour Value greater than 34 (front/side/rear AV added, ie a Dreadnought with 12/12/10 is patrol-legal).
•Although there will be scoring of and prizes for Painting, participation requires only that used models be assembled, based and equipped as they will be played (ie with proper weapons and upgrades).
•Play consists of three 50 minute games in succession--by tournament's end, hobbyists will have a working familiarity with the game and with the core of their army, upon which they can readily build.
•Play begins after lunch and is finished before dinner!
To get those holiday gifts into action, players may register one of two ways:
•Make a purchase at host Gunslinger Games of $10 or greater, sign up in-store, then confirm your registration and what army you will play at Outrider@AdeptusNorthTexas.com (or on the Adeptus email list).
•Buy a participation entry from host Gunslinger Games for $10, sign up in-store, then confirm your registration and what army you will play at Outrider@AdeptusNorthTexas.com (or on the Adeptus email list).
The Combat Patrol tournament will run from Noon till 4:30pm.
Assemble you core patrol, be it an assemblage of grizzled veteran models, a shiny new addition to a familiar force, or an all-new, never-tried first excursion into the hobby, and let slip the dogs of forty-first millennium war, Saturday, January 12, at Gunslinger Games.
