Undead Rising: The 24-Hour Army Build

WFB Undead Rising

Killed first by Alcadizaar, King of Khemri, yet still he stirs.  Killed second by Sigmar, patriarch and founder of the Empire, and yet still he awakens.  Binding the dead to him as his bones stir once more Nagash, Lord of Undeath, rekindles his ancient vendetta against the world.  Drawing his lieutenants to him, the Quest of Nagash begins.  These are the End Times.

With the exciting new End Times story arc for Warhammer, we are planning to aid Nagash in the raising of a new army through a single-day, 24 hour army build in support of a charity that is near and dear to our hearts: Crohn’s and Colitis Canada, and we need you to help us!

When: The 24-Army Build begins at 5pm on Friday, September 12th and ends 24 hours later at 5pm on Saturday, September 13th.

What: We have secured through some promotional credit, and the generosity of our friends at Games Workshop, a giant stack of sealed miniatures from the Tomb Kings & Vampire Counts armies.  These will stay sealed until the beginning of the event, at which point all of our wonderful volunteers (you too hopefully!) will crack them open and begin assembling, painting, and basing models.  Our goal is to build a massive, and completely finished, Legions of the Undead army in a single day.  The bigger the better!

Who: Anyone that is willing to pitch in is welcome!  You don’t have to be a Warhammer player, or even a miniature gamer at all to participate, there will be plenty of jobs to do and we are willing to teach you if you’re willing to be put to work.  This will be a fun community-building experience as we all come together with a singular goal in mind.

For Charity: To help motivate us, and allow us to give back, we will be linking this event with a worthy charity: Crohn’s and Colitis Canada.  We will have information on these diseases available to help spread awareness, and we will be accepting donations 100% of which will be passed along to the foundation.  Donations can be for any specific amount, or they can be in the form of pledges based on how much we are able to complete.  Black Knight Games will be adding $25 to the pot for every 1000pts worth of Undead you help us finish!  Donations may be made in the store, or via PayPal using the button below, and we will be accepting donations from now until Sunday, September 14th.

So there are two ways that you can help out, and we would encourage you do either one, or even both if you are able!

WMH: Doubles Tournament September 6th

Sept 2013 DoublesYou know what’s better than a Warmachine tournament?  A Warmachine tournament with a partner!  Doubles tournaments have always been popular at Black Knight Games.  This is the chance to bring our that friend who doesn’t normally go out to tournaments, showing him the fun he’s missing!  Here’s the moment you’ve been waiting for to set aside petty rivalries and assemble the Dream Team.

When:  Saturday, September 6th, 10:30am – 7:00pm.  We will be going four rounds and using Deathclock timing and Steamroller 2014 scenarios.

Game Size Games will be played with two-player teams, each bringing 25 point lists.  You may not include a character in your list that is in your partner’s list.  Tier lists may not be used.  This is a 1 list format.

How it Works:  Each team will have a player 1 and a player 2, and play will alternate between teams in player order.  Scenarios are only scored on player 2 turns.  If both players play the same faction, their friendly faction models are considered friendly faction.  Games end by assassination only if both opposing casters are killed.

Entry Fee: $20.00 ($16 for Stronghold Members) per person, which includes two pop and pizza lunch each.

Prizes:  Store credit and coins will be awarded to each of the players on the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place overall teams.  Additionally a prize will be raffled off among all players who bring a fully painted list.

Star Trek Attack Wing: The Collective Month 1

Star Trek Attack WingBlack Knight Games will be hosting our first ever Star Trek: Attack Wing event this Sunday!  The Collective Organized Play arc begins with FIRST CONTACT.

When: Sunday, August 17th, 12pm – 6pm

Entry Fee: $15.00 ($12 for Stronghold Members), Entry includes a Collective Tournament Booster

Maximum Attendance: There are only 10 Boosters for the event, so it will be first come first serve – so be sure to pre-register today!

While you are in a battle with your enemy, you suddenly find yourselves in a different sector of space. In front of you is a tremendous ship in the shape of a cube. Q, a member of the Q Continuum, has transported both of your fleets into Borg space to “give you a taste of your future, a preview of things to come.”
“The Borg are the ultimate user. They’re not interested in political conquest, wealth, or power as you know it. They’re simply interested in your ship and its technology. They’ve identified it as something they can consume.”
“The hall is rented; the orchestra engaged. It’s now time to see if you can dance…”

—Star Trek: The Next Generation Season 2: Episode 16 “Q Who”

-Each player arrives to the event with a pre-built 90 point fleet
-Each player receives one random The Collective Tournament Booster
-Each player uses the Ship, Captain and Upgrades from the Booster they received to make a single 30 point Ship using the content of the booster and adds it to their pre-built 90 point fleet (for a fleet total of up to 120 points) or can use 30 points from that booster and then reassign crew/upgrades from their pre-built 90 point fleet to the 30 point ship and vice versa (and even between ships within the 90 point fleet)— the exact format is at the store’s discretion.

For more information on this event check out the WizKidz page!
