In 2017 we had our first Warhammer 40,000 Team Tournament. Many folks were disappointed because of the limited number of players we allowed for that event. Because it was such a hit, and there was so much demand we are bringing it back. This year it will be capped at 50 Teams (100 Total Players)!
While I wish I could tell you what the rules will be, it’s just not possible this early in the year. There could be 30 new codices before the cart opens in June at the prodigious rate Games Workshop has worked under 8th edition. Don’t let that stop you from starting to plan your teams. The team event will once again be a Friday event. Trophies, Awards, the possibility of crushing defeat! Everything you could want in a team tournament and we look forward to all of you participating.
We are beginning work on updates to the Michigan GT website for this year. The biggest update has been to the shopping cart. It is currently being tested out by opening pre-registration for our Infinity and Aristea! events. You can find our updated cart at Store.MichiganGT.Com or follow the link from the main page.
To go with this update, we have removed the convention bad from the GT this year. You will simply pay for the events you want to play in. Our hope it to streamline the registration process, particularly for the team events.
If you are looking at playing in Infinity this year you can get a discount by registering for the 2 ITS events and any 2 side events now through May. Then we will switch the cart open for the rest of our events. We look forward to seeing all you you at various tournaments and conventions throughout the year as we build towards the 6th annual Michigan GT!
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.

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!
