April Events Calendar

Warhammer 40,000: Monster Mash-up (Event)

When Dreadnoughts and Monsters collide nothing will remain after the smoke has cleared but one standing victorious.

When: Sunday, April 15th, 1:00pm – 4:00pm

Entry Fee: FREE!
Prizes: Two $10 prizes will be awarded

Rules

1) Each player may bring 1 walker or 1 Monstrous creature to the Monster Mash-up with a maximum point value of 200 points within legal codex restrictions.

2) Entries may be used from any army selection type as long as they meet the 200 point maximum requirement and stand on two (or more) feet or claws.

3) No tanks or fliers will be permitted in this event (sorry Imperial Guard – You’re stuck with Sentinals!)

4) Turn order will be determined randomly at the start of the each round.

5) Buildings completely block line of sight, (no seeing through windows).

6) Models must be WYSIWYG, does not need to be painted.

7) No proxies (ex. Librarian dreadnoughts must be the actual model or a sufficently converted model).

8 ) There are no rules against players teaming up or head hunting of any kind. This can be a battle that is a free-for-all so players can go solo, or operate in alliances as well.

9) A “Monster Slayer” rule will be in effect where if a Walker inflicts a wound on a Monsterous creature (after any saves, but before Feel No Pain) the player rolls an extra die, and on a roll of ‘6’ the monster dies regardless of remaining wounds.

10) The winners of this event will be determined in two ways: by Kill Points with each creature/walker worth 1 kill point for every 50 points (or part) the model is worth rounding up to determine KP value, and by ‘Last Man Standing’.  Both the player with the highest kill count, and the last man standing will receive a $10 BKG Gift Card for their victories!

 

Warmachine League Starting Soon!

Black Knight Games is hosting a Warmachine and Hordes league! Running from April 16th until May 13th this league will follow the rules listed for Privateer Press Organized play including special league models, league upgrades, and league specific alliances.

Throughout the league players will be allowed to play against other participants and report wins, but each Thursday (from 6pm – 9pm) we will host a special scenario and opportunity to earn additional points for participating in and winning battles.

Privateer press patches are available for participants, as well as special patches to reward players engaging in a battle against 5+ factions throughout the league, patches for players playing team games, and hobby patches for players converting and painting a league model.

Best of all, results from the league here at Black Knight Games are uploaded to Privateer Press and effect a global map. What alliance will dominate the Olgunholt Forest?

The War-Torn Alliances give everyone an opportunity to shine in nearly all aspects of the hobby—painting and modeling, faction mastery, and working with a teammate to achieve victory for the greater good.

If there are questions about the league, feel free to email me or discuss them in this thread.

League Alliances:

      Cygnar–Thornfall Alliance
      Protectorate–Retribution
      Khador–Blindwater Congregation
      Cryx–Circle
      Mercenaries–Skorne
      Trollbloods–Legion

The first special event day for the league is April 19th, but league games can be played starting on April 16th. If you want to count league games played before the first event day, email me the result of your match, your opponent’s name, and what factions each player played.
