Call to Arms: Warhammer 40,000

40K Call to Arms 2014

sm BK WH40KWhen: Today, Monday, January 20th

Deadline: Sunday, March 16th, 12:00pm, where there will be a finale day of gaming.

Entry Fee: $150.00

You Get: $170.00 worth of miniatures for the army.  You can put this credit towards anything that helps you get the army finished, including paint, tools, flock, etc.  Just by signing up you get a deal!

Victory Conditions:  It is the goal of all participants to complete a 1000 point Warhammer 40,000 army  from scratch, and get comfortable playing it for league or tournaments.  If you finish painting your army by the deadline and attend a minimum of two Call to Arms Events you’ll get a percentage of the Victory Pool.  There will be about one Call to Arms event each week.

Victory Pool:  Black Knight Games will put $10 per participant in to a Victory Pool.  This pool will be split evenly among the participants that complete the victory conditions by the deadline.

Crews:  Crews must be a legal 1000pt Warhammer 40,000 force.  The miniatures used for the army may be new (either from your entry fee start-up, or bought separately) or they may be miniatures you already have.  If you wish to use miniatures you already owned before the Call to Arms began you must show the BKG staff that they are not yet painted (either in person or send us a picture).

Call to Arms Events:  Each week Matt P, the Standard Bearer, will run Call to Arms events (on a mixture of days).  The primary focus of these events will be putting armies together and getting more familiar with the game, but we’ll also be doing some gaming events and painting events as well.  Each participant must attend at least two Call to Arms events before the deadline to satisfy the victory conditions, including the finale.  Call to Arms events give you a great opportunity to meet, play, and paint with other gamers at BKG.  Together we will motivate each other to get these armies done!
