Fate of Konor 40k Events

The time is upon us — Galaxy in Flames: Fate of Konor officially starts July 27th! This is our first 40k Global Campaign, so we’re really excited to participate, particularly since the new 8th Edition came out this summer as well. Events on Wednesdays, starting August 2nd, and will have gradually increasing power levels, going up to 85 Power Level on Week 6.

Over next 6 weeks, we’re be planning in store events to support the themes and weekly campaigns. First up: Astramis! From GW’s website:

“Astaramis is a well-ordered and heavily defended hive world, the largest center of population in the Konor System and a potent symbol of Imperial dominance.

Having gathered significant momentum with their early victories on the outskirts of the Konor System, the armies of Chaos spread out across the region like poison seeping into the blood stream of the Imperium.”

Which planet will be next will be announced next week, probably August 2nd or 3rd.

Taking a tip from the internet, we’re running an escalation league over the next 6 weeks, with themes for each week. Currently, in store events are planned for Wednesdays since our normal tabletop day (Tuesday) doesn’t always have 40k or AoS on the schedule.

The themes are:

  • Week 1: Start Collecting!/Space Marines
  • Week 2: Elites
  • Week 3: Tanks
  • Week 4: Psykers
  • Week 5: Fast Attack/Flyers
  • Week 6: Scenery/Lords of War

If you follow the weekly theme (i.e. use the specified unit type in your battles) you will get double points for each new painted unit that you bring in, and double points for using them in your battles.

 

  • Week 1: up to 25
  • Week 2: up to 40
  • Week 3: up to 50
  • Week 4: up to 65
  • Week 5: up to 75
  • Week 6: up to 85

If you can’t come in, that doesn’t mean you can’t participate! Since this is a global event, if you pick up an army roster sheet and collector card, you can record victories you have elsewhere (at home, at a friend’s house, anywhere really), bring them into the store by Wednesday nights and we can enter your results for the week. You can also score points for your faction by building and painting new models.

More information and league rules can be found on our Warhammer 40k page.
