BeakyCon3 announcement

We are moving the GT to Coliseum of Comics in Kissimmee, Florida. Kate Beard, owner of Birds of Paradise Games is ill with Lupus so they unfortunately will be closing next weekend. Kate is a very good friend and if not for her kind offer to host the event there might not be a GT this year. God bless her. A very big thanks to my friend Tim Wright and Steve Watts over at Coliseum of Comics for helping us out.

The dates are the same - The weekend of October 5-6. A couple of slots have come open so feel free to contact me if you'd like to register.

BeakyCon3 Green Dice

Every year I have people not playing in the GT who want to purchase these dice. They are only for those who play in the GT. I think they are the best dice on the circuit and are a signature item. This year everyone who plays will get six of these plus a load of the Bombardment Dice that Games Workshop released for Apocalypse. Enjoy !

BeakyCon3 Prep Tourney - August 3rd - Anthem Games (Tampa)

There is a request from several local gamers to hold a BeakyCon3 prep tourney at Anthem Games in Tampa on August 3rd. Here's how it works...

2250 points
Double FOC
Up to one fortification

You can take Forge World units from two of their newer books:

• Imperial Armor Apocalypse 2nd Edition
• Aeronautica

These units must have the 40k Approved stamp. No Lucius pattern assault pods or Hades Breeching Drills. You must bring the actual Forge World models and their most up-to-date rules.

We will use some of the sample missions for BeakyCon3. You can find them here:

2.5 hours per round with three rounds total. It's a W-L format with tie breakers.

BeakyCon3 Update

Okay so it's been awhile since the last post. Much work is already underway for the third year of BeakyCon. We have started a Facebook group which you should definitely check out if you're planning to attend:

There is also some useful information over on the 40k Wrecking Crew forums as well:

BeakyCon3 will be held the weekend of October 5-6 in Dunedin, Florida at Birds of Paradise Games. The format is 2250 points, double FOC, allies, fortifications and some Forge World. We are only taking 32-40 players this year due to the smaller venue. Registration is still $50 per player. There will be five round - three on the Saturday and then the final two rounds on the Sunday. Lots and lots of awesome prize support this year ! Currently we have just under 20 players registered so don't wait if you're planning to attend. It's going to be a great time for sure !!

Here is how to register using good old PayPal...

My email address for my PayPal account is as follows:

The cost to register is $50. Make sure to note YOUR first and last name plus what army you'll bring. Put BeakyCon3 REGISTRATION in the subject line.
