We have a bit of info to add this week.

Warmachine event sign-ups went live this month. There are 7 events over the course of the weekend. Last year's convention had battles going into the wee hours of the night so don't miss your chance to slug it out!

There is a lot of excitement for the 2nd Edition Malifaux games. Watch for the next Beta rules releases from Wyrd on October 7th that will fill in the gaps from the 2E rulebook and Arsenal decks due on store shelves soon.

MechaniCon 40k tickets and Colonial WHFB GT tickets are quickly approaching sell outs. Don't hesitate to get your spot reserved, once again at only $49.99 for the whole weekend including any side events you want to register for!

Side events continue to be highlights of the weekend and not just something to fill up space. Battlefleet Gothic returns for the 5th year, 40K Kill Team events are here again and even Bring and Battle 40K Apocalypse goodness has been added.

The Flames of War two day event, Mid War - 1675 points, will once again be available.

Infinity has come back for a second year. The 300 point event on Saturday, November 2nd will be a blast!

Just a reminder that there are less than 5 weeks remaining until MechaniCon 2013! Tickets are available, but they are moving, so get yours soon. This is MechaniCon's most affordable price ever, with $49.99 getting you your tournament ticket AND your weekend badge for the WarStore Weekend!

Don't wait any longer on reserving your hotel room either! The discount rate expires on October 11th.

We hope to have the final rules package available by Monday. The final pack will include links to all the current FAQ's and there will be an addendum on October 26th if we have any new FAQ's in the next few weeks.

Unfortunately this means that the October 6th deadline for a new codex to be legal will not allow the new Sisters rules (scheduled for 10/19).

The only significant change to the original rules pack is that Space Marine players must choose their Chapter Tactics and include it on their Army List.

Remember to email your list in by October 26th for bonus points. List submission should go to: gaminggarage AT gmail DOT com

Don't forget that there is soooo much more than just the 40K Grand Tournament! The painting competition will return as well as tons of other games including the WHFB GT, Infinity, Malifaux, Warmachine, Battlefleet Gothic, Flames of War, Brushfire, Heavy Gear and tons more!

Finally, our sneak peek at the new t-shirt artwork continues! Check it out on our Facebook page: ... 9581129046
