Battle for Blacksburg 1,850 Tournament

The Blacksburg RTT is a small tournament being put together by a local player who wanted to organize something a bit more along the lines of the national tournament scene than the LGS's regular events. The tournament will be a 3 round event using ATC format, and takes place on Saturday, April 26 at the Comfort Suites Blacksburg. Signups are through email only (aidansb[at]vt[dot]edu), with a cap of 16 players. Registration will open at 9:00am and close at 9:45am, with Round 1 beginning at 10:00am. Entry is $20.

Rules:
  • Stronghold Assault and Escalation will not be used.
  • Dataslates and Formations will be allowed, but will take up the Allies slot.
  • Forgeworld 40k Approved models will be allowed.
  • Rules released after March 26 (one month before the tournament) will not be used.
  • Any save of 2+ that is rerolled will only succeed on a 4+ on the reroll. 

We're pretty excited about this tournament here at FTGT, and will have strong representation, with Chandler, Ron, and myself all playing. Ron and I will be bringing the bugs, while Chandler is planning on bringing some Dreads in his Iron Hands.

So, if you happen to be in the Blacksburg area on April 26th, shoot the TO, Aidan, an email at the above address and get signed up. If not, we're planning on using the Torrent of Fire Tournament Tracker to keep score, so feel free to track our progress there, we'll try not to disappoint!
