40K Kill Team Preorder Special

Kill Team is Coming!  Warhammer 40,000 Kill Team is the result of many previous iterations of a Warhammer 40k skirmish system.  It’s a little bit Shadow War, a little bit Necromunda, and a little bit 40k.  It’s basically the combination of everything we want when it comes to a skirmish game.  It’s got sweet terrain, narrative and competitive play, great in-depth rules for advancing your team, loads of options, and best of all – GW is committing to it long term.  That means OP kits, a solid release schedule, and plenty of support.  This Kill Team is new and improved and here to stay.  And you can play with your existing army!  Learn More

To launch Kill Team right, we have a great number of new releases right at launch, July 28th, and we are very happy at BKG to offer our own Preorder Specials!

Warhammer 40,000 Kill Team Core Set  $159.99
There’s no better place to kick off your first Kill Team campaign than with the Kill Team boxed set, containing everything you need to start gaming, including two kill teams, the full rules and a complete board setup featuring the new Sector Imperialis terrain. If you wanted to, you could only buy this set as a board game in its own right and still have hours of fun with it.

Warhammer 40,000 Kill Team Core Manual  $49.99
As well as being available in the Kill Team boxed set, you’ll be able to pick up the manual separately – great if you’re intending to split the set with a friend or want to get stuck in with the game but have plenty of scenery and miniatures already.

Kill Team Starter Set: Krogskull’s Boyz  $74.99
Kill Team Starter Sets are the perfect way to get stuck in with a new kill team, each featuring specially selected models, new rules, custom tokens and terrain to bolster your collection, all at a lower price than picking up the contents separately.  This one is for Orks.

Warhammer 40,000 Doubles Tournament AUG

When: Saturday, August 4th, 11:00am (Registration begins at 10am)

Entry Fee: $20.00 // 6 Hero’s Rewards – Includes a pizza lunch

Stronghold Members: Get a Hero’s Reward for participating.

Format: 3 Rounds, Teams of 2, 1000 points/Player, ITC Rules. We will use the Best Coast Parings program to track.  Scenarios will be chosen from the ITC scenarios, rulebook, and/or Chapter Approved.

Armies: We encourage our players to have all their models be WYSIWYG (What you see it what you get) to avoid possible confusion for your opponents. Simple conversions are allowed, but anything more extreme, or model substitutions, must be approved by the event organizer. We encourage you to always double check with us in advance before using non WYSIWYG models.

Teams:

  • Each team’s army is classified as the same army with the restriction of one faction per team removed. Each player’s individual army still has this restriction.
  • Maximum 2 detachments per player
  • Interactions for specific factions/abilities can work between ally armies providing they all contain the required key words. This does not mean you can name two different factions the same key word to try and circumvent this rule. (an ork weirdboy cannot use da jump on a unit of space marines even if the space marine chapter you chose to name them is “speed freaks”)
  • Unique Characters are unique to the entire team army (no armies with two Sly Marbos or two Magnus the Reds etc.)
  • Strategems can only be used once per team per phase and all command points are shared. (3 for battleforged + the amount generated by detachments in both players lists)

Prizes: $20.00 per person (minus the cost of lunch) is all put towards the prize pool. Prizes given for Top three players, best painted and best sportsman.

Painting: Your Army does not need to be painted and based but it is always better to play with and against a fully painted and based army. There is prize for best painted (voted on by your peers). Armies that are not fully painted do not qualify for this prize.

MTG 2018 BKG Grand Championship Invitational

  • Remaining seats in the invitational will be hand-selected by BKG, based on things like overall attendance, record, and loyalty to the community.

Entry Fee: $8.00 // or 2 Hero’s Rewards

Stronghold Members get: 1 Hero’s Reward for participating

Format: Rumblemania is the premier Pay Per View event of the Rumbleslam Crackdown League, and this one is special as it will issue the first ever title belts, including crowning our first World Champion of the World!  Rumblemania will have three rounds on the card:

Round 1: Exhibition – Everyone is paired randomly and play a game of exhibition for the Crackdown League.  Each player that plays in this round will earn a bonus point towards the league (in addition to the points acquired for the game itself).  The game format is decided by the players together, if they can’t agree they will use the World Champion of the World format.

Round 2: Royal Rumbleslam – Everyone plays in a multi-player royal rumble – a special format for up to four players.  Players bring a team worth 1,000,000 Dosh, limit one ‘Tag Team’ and they play a four-player game using the Tag Team rules.  The order in which players are eliminated decides the title matches they will fight for.

Round 3: Title Matches – The winners of Round 2 pick first, followed by the second place players etc, performance in Round 1 breaks ties.  The players pick from a selection of title matches determined by the event organizers, but everyone will be fighting for a title of some sort.  The World Champion of the World will be one of the titles up for grabs, and the others will be determined by overall attendance (1 Title per 2 players will be up for grabs).  Participants play games using the format rules for the Title they are going for.  The winners of these rounds will be our first title holders, who may then be challenged by players who spend enough Star Points in the Crackdown League in the future!

Prizes: In addition to the possible pride of becoming a title holder, players will have an opportunity to win a door prize or two.  We will pick some good Rumbleslam stuff to give away, and each player will get a ballot for each round they play, and for each victory they earn.

So tag a team-mate, bring those belts, and defend them with all your might!
