As I’ve mentioned a few times in previous posts, Crossroad Games in Standish, Maine is hosting a 32-player 40K tournament this month on the 21st called the April Assault. It’s a hobby oriented event, which means aside from battle points earned for the day you will also be scored in painting, sportsmanship, army composition and even a pub quiz. Understandably it may not be for everyone as this is a big deviation from our normal tournaments but that’s exactly the point, doing something different.
Admission will cover lunch for the day and there will also be some goodies. There will be prizes for the top players as well as a painting competition. If you attended The Standish Standoff last year then this is like its baby brother with a few minor changes.
Registration can be done on the Crossroad Games site byand purchasing your ticket. You can also register in person but if you want to ensure yourself a spot then I’d suggest registering online.
Lastly, the packet of information about the event can be found on the Crossroad Games 40K forums. All the details on the scoring can be found in there, which missions will be played and a schedule of events.
So, if you’re looking for a great day of 40K gaming then check it out. If you’ve never attended a 40K tournament before then this is a great way to get your feet wet.
