40k Narrative

Image result for huge 40k battle

This year we are including a massive Narrative 40k Big Battle!

Thrill in the warfare simulation as you and your fellow players work together as brothers and sisters in arms to defeat the other side!

I won't give away all aspects for the sake of surprise, but be prepared for each player to have an important battle field role. Failure means letting your team mates down and victory means being an All-Star of the battle.

Prizes will randomly be given out each turn, and no prizes are given away for winning because this is not about winning. This is about telling and story and taking part in an epic narrative game. The winning side receives bragging rights.

We will have Space Hulk Battles to control orbital bombardments, sewer short cuts to travel deep into enemy territory, shield generating bunkers to claim, and a transponder battle to decide who gets reinforcements.

Each Phase will be timed and strictly enforced to keep the game running smoothly.

The two teams will be Order and Chaos.
Order will include Imperium armies, Eldar, and Tau.
Chaos armies will include Chaos Marines & Chaos Daemons.
Tyranids will be a third faction that cares not for objectives and is only out for killing. They will set up differently than the other two teams. (not explained for surprise)
All other armies (Orks, Necrons, etc.) will be split between the two sides as different factions and warbands choose their sides for different reasons.

We are only allowing 20 player spots for this event, so get yours early.

This is the only gaming event at Shorehammer which requires painted models. We require at least 3 colors on your models, but basing is not required.
