40K Event: April Assault Tournament in Maine

April Assault at Crossroad GamesOn April 21st Crossroad Games in Standish, Maine will be hosting a 40K tournament, April Assault (temporary name). This past November the shop ran The Standish Standoff, a large tournament with lots and lots of goodies and prizes. The April Assault is a ‘mini’ Standoff and mini only refers to a slightly smaller prize pool and goodie bag but not attendance.

More details will be coming but the game size will be 1,500 and, if I recall, hosting 34 players. The cost will be $25 which will get you lunch as well as some freebies to take home. The format uses mission battle points and soft scores for painting, sportsmanship and a pub quiz. There will be a painting competition as well.

If you’re in the area and looking for a fun day of gaming then you can’t go wrong. There will be a registration prior to the event, as there is limited tables, and once I know when the registration begins I’ll be sure to pass it along.


I began playing Warhammer 40K in 2006, and have been an avid player and hobbyist since then. I have also been blogging about 40K for almost as long as I've been playing it, having started Creative Twilight in 2009.

    I might be able to try to sneak away that day. It’s a week or so before turkey season starts.

    • Turkey season? You hunt turkey?

        I am this year. Taking my HSC in a couple weeks, and then trying my hand at spring turkey when the season opens.

    Are you setting up a Paypal registration option?

    •  I’ll definitely toss a link for it up here and on the forums once I know where they want it going.
