This coming Saturday sees Gamescape’s first official tournament for the brand new Warhammer Fantasy 8th Edition! We’re wasting no time in inviting all fans of the game to join us for a day of pitched battles, whether you’ve read the new book or not. The format is thus: we’ll be running a standard, three-round tournament with 1500-pt armies using the new comp rules from 8th edition (at least 25% core models; no more than 25% for Lords, Heroes, & Rare; 50% Special). The 8th Edition .pdf updates are up on the GW website, so make sure your army list conforms to the new info. For those who don’t have a full army ready yet, we’ll also be running a 500-pt Team Mega-Battle. For this, you can bring just a couple of units and we’ll set up a huge table so you can play around with the new rules without sacrificing your good name or terrifying reputation. Either way, Gamescape’s got you covered!

Warhammer Fantasy 8th Ed. Tournament
The awesome new edition of Fantasy Battles!
The idea behind Gamescape’s Tournament Series sprang from wanting to provide our gamers with one set Saturday per month in which they could compete for cool prizes in a variety of games. To this end, we’ll be hosting a tournament each month with plenty of warning for people to prepare, practice, and read up on the rules to get ready. It’s a great chance for skilled and passionate players to show both their competence and gamesmanship, and also a cool environment to allow newer players to practice their chops as they work their way up to mastering their favorite sets of rules.
