May 7, 2016
As part of our Warhammer 40,000 Tank Shock campaign month, we’re running a bunch of awesome in-store events that highlight the gigantic and deadly tech that the races of the 40K universe like to use on the battlefield. We’ve got a box of cool prizes to hand out for Tank Shock events like special damage counters, certificates, and award buttons. And all Warhammer 40K vehicles will be 10% off through May 2016! Check out the list of events below:
Saturday, May 8th 12-6pm – Engines of War Build Night
The first Tank Shock event is Engines of War, which is a building event that will roll over into the evening’s Pizza & Painting Night. Participants are encouraged to grab a cool 40K vehicle that they want to use in the events throughout the month, and spend the day with us putting it together with other like-minded tankers. Take advantage of the 10% discount on vehicles through the month!
Sunday, May 9th 12-6pm – Parade Day Speed-Painting Contest
Our Parade Day is a dedicated speed-painting event meant to give tankers a special day to decorate their new beasts in good company. Participants may paint a vehicle they’ve purchased previously but they must paint the entire thing at the store during the allotted time. Upon completion of the event, the GSN staff will vote on the best painted vehicle based on a number of criteria. Prizes and glory could be yours!
Tuesday, May 17th 6-10pm – Mechanized Strike Mega-Battle
Mechanized Strike is a massive group game where players will break into one of two sides and fight it out on the battlefield. Each player may bring a 500-point army (or 750 points if their army is fully painted) Elite Vehicle Assets rules will be in play, which means that at the beginning of the game each player will choose a singe vehicle in his or her army to gain a special rule from the Vehicle Assets table. Vehicles that destroy other vehicles in the Shooting Phase can earn additional rolls on the table. As a final bonus, any vehicle that was built or painted at the previous Tank Shock events will also receive a free roll on the Vehicle Assets table.
Sunday, May 22nd 12-6pm – Brute Firepower Tournament
Our Brute Firepower tournament is the conclusion of this month’s Tank Shock campaign. This will be a 1500-point event using a modified version of the Maelstrom of War Missions. Players need to build and bring a deck of 21 Tactical Objective Cards. Players may, if they wish, include the faction-specific tactical objectives that match the faction of their army’s Warlord when selecting which objectives to use. Elite Vehicle Assets rules will be in play, which means that at the beginning of the game each player will choose a singe vehicle in his or her army to gain a special rule from the Vehicle Assets table. Vehicles that destroy other vehicles in the Shooting Phase can earn additional rolls on the table. Entry to the tournament is $10.
