40K GT / Invitational Final Primer -- Same as Charity Tourney Missions/Format

After a lot of work, getting married, going on a honeymoon, etc., and with a lot of help from 40K GT/Invitational leads Neil and Phil, we've got this thing ready to go for helping people make final prep.

The final mission packet in the guidebook will pull missions from the 4 rounds (repeating each twice). These will also be from where the missions are pulled for the Charity Tournament on July 18. Sign up for it, spots are running out!

JULY 18 Charity BBQ Registration Open - Details and How To Register - Also, LIVE MUSIC!

32 x 40K spots (missions and format pulled from
16 x Malifaux spots

Several of these are already gone, these events will both sell out very fast

$30 will get you just entry
$40 will get you food, bev, and entry (much cheaper than procuring it solely on-site)

Do the $40

This is done as a donation to the NOCF for its supported charities. You make the donation, we welcome you!

Address will be provided to attendees in our packet once finalized, as this is a Backyard BBQ Tournament. It will be in McLean, VA, just off 123 in McLean proper.

8AM - 9AM check-in

12PM - 1PM Lunch

430PM - 730PM Final Round (Both 40K and Malifaux)

We'll probably designate an after party bar in the Tyson's or similar area nearby, but this will be informal

The NOCF site is a bit under construction in advance of their coming Army Raffles, which are gonna be super awesome this year.

You can see the events there

Until account creation is fixed, you'll want to send money via paypal to
Please indicate in notes whether you are sending your reg fee for 40K or Malifaux

It is highly likely there will be some form of live music at least during game breaks. We'll probably have things like cornhole, ladder ball, and bocce as space permits. Bring your significant others and what-not!

NOVA Quick Hit Updates - Show Mini Pre-Orders Up; 2 Weeks Until Pass Early Bird Price Goes Away; 40K Army Construction Changes

First, the really badass NOVA Open Official Show Miniature is now up for pre-sale on the site. We'll close down pre-sale on July 1, so get it while you can. We'll have a few for sale at the show, but supplies will be strictly limited. Pre-ordering is the only way to guarantee getting them. You can order as many as you want, if you want to get some for your friends / etc., so long as you make your pre-order on or before July 1. The detail came out SUPER awesome on these guys, as we've got a few early casts in hand from Prodos. A few of the more talented local painters are working up a few to help show off the deets with a good paint job.

You can pre-order them from this link, picking them up at the NOVA Open proper.

Second, the Convention Access Pass that is the primary attendance item for the NOVA remains at the $40 early bird rate ONLY UNTIL JUNE 15. You must acquire it on or before that date in order to avoid a $10 higher rate. There are also a shrinking number of Swag Bags left, which are one of the cooler things at NOVA, and they go first come first serve to CAP purchases.

Finally, army construction amendments are finalized. The primer will update very soon (being worked by Neil Gilstrap and the rest of us 40K guys presently), but this is pulled from the Newlsetter that went out yesterday.
