We have begin updating our graphics packages. The location is secured and the majority of the games are scheduled. We’ve even found our latest Defense Against the Dark….no that’s not right, our Age of Sigmar TO!
This year the Warhammer 40,000 Team Tournament will be larger than before, with more prize support and trophies available to win.
The Warhammer 40,000 Championship is capped at 128 players.
Dark Age appears to be growing in both player count as well as Saturday being an all round friendly style event (MTI, Sportsmanship and Painting) with Sunday being a strict MTI scoring event for those of you who want straight competitive events.
Shadespire, RumbleSlam, Aristea, and Imperial Assault will all be new to the Michigan GT this year. Rumors has it more new events are under consideration.
Infinity’s O-12 Proxywar will be a Saturday only event, with an additional 1day ITS on Sunday (Direct Action style, at a lower points for recovery day game play). The Tag Battle and Fire Team Fire Fight are both back as well with upgrades coming to them.
The Charity Raffle is underway with Warhammer 40k, Infinity, and Warmachine/Hordes Armies being painted up as well as other great items. Based on player feed back will will be setting the event up this year so you will be able to enter your tickets based on game system/prize category.
Make sure to follow our Media Partners (Purge the Alien Podcast and WarGamerTeri) for more information about the GT!
As always if you are looking to sponsor the Michigan GT, email sponsorship@michiganGT.com or contact us through our Facebook page. This should be the biggest Michigan GT ever!
It took up a couple months to get rested up after last year (our biggest GT ever) but we are back in the saddle and getting ready for 2018. That being said we want to welcome TinkerTurf as a bronze level sponsor for this year.
They are preparing to launch a new Kickstarter this January 11th, for a line of terrain that will work fantastically with games such as Infinity, Necromunda, and Dark Age. Check out their website and get ready for their kickstarter!
We couldn’t host the GT each year without fine sponsors like TinkerTurf!
And now, the moment you’ve all been waiting for (if you were in the 40K Championship anyways)!
Theme and Appearance
Thank you everyone who participated in our biggest 40K tournament to date! We hope to see you next year, and we hope you can convince friends to join in the fun!
In order to be able to prepare properly for registration on Friday, 10-6-2017 we will be closing the online cart on Monday 10-2-2017. We encourage you to grab tickets between now and then. We will be accepting registration for any open events at the door during the convention, but you will find having your tickets in hand will be much smoother.
We also recommend you print your tickets like they suggest, to speed up registration. We look forward to seeing you all next week, and if you have delayed purchasing your badge or getting in on an event, don’t delay!
