BFS GT 2012 Oct. 5th-7th Columbus day w/e [UPDATE 9/]

Postby pissclams » Mon May 07, 2012 1:41 am

The Battle for Salvation Gaming Group would like to proudly announce that we are now accepting registrations for those who would like to attend the 3rd annual Battle for Salvation Grand Tournament!

For a 3rd time we will be hosting our 2000 point Warhammer 40,000 Grand Tournament on Columbus day weekend.

http://www.battleforsalvation.com/

Winners will earn spots to the 2013 NOVA Open Invitational!

We have not only increased the substantial prize support, but also the size and scope of the event itself. With our venue at the Palisades Mall we are able to accommodate a much larger number of players, with a minimum of 64 to start. In addition to the Grand Tournament, we will be hosting a 3-4 game 40k Skirmish Tournament hosted by Fritz (of Fritz40k) on Friday (see the player packets for more details).

Our Grand Tournament will feature 6 games over 2 days. Players will be sorted into 8-man brackets at the end of Saturday based on performance. Players will then battle for supremacy in their respective brackets on Sunday, with all players guaranteed 3 games (no more single elimination). Prizes will be awarded to the winners of each bracket and the winner of the top bracket will be crowned Tournament Champion.

In order to register please navigate to the Registration part of the site or click here: http://www.battleforsalvation.com/registration-2/ . A big thank you to everyone for helping make the Battle for Salvation one of the premier Warhammer 40K Tournaments!

Another holiday weekend GT? If it were a week before or a week after, I would be there. I just can't do a holiday weekend, which is a shame since I would love to support a tournie so local.

Some of the basics.

the Tournament will be 1999+1 point limit.

1 Force org slot.

bastions and aegis lines will be allowed, still considering the landing pad.

Oh and we are doing an Apocalypse narrative on saturday for anyone not participating in the GT with prize support.

This makes it convienient for anyone coming out of town since October is a busy time in the northeast with weddings and leaf watchers. I suggest anyone even concidering coming to the BFS to reserve a room. You can always cancel.
