Directions to the Ballroom West - Hillsborough Room

When you enter the lobby go to the left and there is a hallway that leads to all the ballrooms. Go all the way to the back until you see the Hillsborough Room. That's where the GT is going to take place.


Conference room update part II - Ballroom West

We have been moved to a larger ballroom to better accommodate our venue. It will be held in the Ballroom West on the lobby level.


Conference room update

The conference room we will be using might change so ask at the front desk when you arrive at the hotel where the Warhammer 40k tournament will be held. I'll post it up today when I find out the final details.

A couple of announcements

As you all probably know there is not a requirement for bringing a painted army but let's be honest - most people who are going to a GT want to see lots of beautifully painted armies. Therefore everyone who brings a fully painted army will receive 5 battle points as a bonus. That might not sound like much but believe me when I say it can make a difference.

The second announcement is that the winner of the golden bracket will be christened the Warmaster while the winner of the silver bracket will be christened the Emperor's Champion.

More BeakyCon Announcements

Wow it’s already October now! My how fast time flies. BeakyCon is right around the corner.

Here is some information for you as a gamer that you need to know:

1) The GT is 2000 points.
2) No Forgeworld units are allowed.
3) We only use the GW FAQs.
4) All models must be WYSIWYG and fully assembled. Proxies are not allowed.
5) Bring 9 copies of your army list with you. Each copy must be typed and stapled with your full name appearing on the front page. We prefer that you use Army Builder if you have access to the software. Your army list must provide complete details for every unit.
6) Make sure to bring your codex, rulebook, measuring tape, templates and dice. It’s also always a good idea to bring some glue in case a mini breaks.
7) Registration starts at 7:30am on Saturday – please be there at that time. You will receive a player registration ID number and tournament kit. The tournament kit will include the scenarios, score sheets and a player tracker so you can keep a running tally of your scores. There will be some coffee for the first to arrive both mornings.
8) You can park in the Marriott hotel parking lot – the cost is $6/day.

If you have any questions then contact me via this email address.
