Alright, ladies and gents. Now that we’ve all had a chance to come down from the high (and sober up a bit ;) ), Here’s how things shook out at this years Granite City Waaagh!Fest! The top four took home etched liter beer mugs and kustom made plushie squigs.

Best Overall: Matt Root

Best General: Marv Sims

Best Sport: Shawn Kilgore

Best Paint: Nathan Sorenson

A few other notable mentions took home some specially chosen prizes :) Toby Miers took home a ‘uge bucket of cheese balls for Cheesiest Armylist (three Imperial Knights will do that to a person). Puck (Paul Huck) took home the Worst Luck (two new Chessex dice cubes) for his atrocious attempt at, well, everything during his second match on the spikey Riddick board. And to the person who placed last, we typically give out a different game for them to play, maybe it’ll go better for them. This year though, we gave Isaac Thomsen the opportunity to maybe get a second chance under 7th Edition WH40k with a new rules box set. Good luck Isaac!

I want to thank all of the staff and all the attendees for an excellent turnout, a ton of new stories, and a whole bunch of new friends, even if only for day. Keep your eyes peeled for the details on the upcoming Camp Brenny for those coming in from out of town – camping an 40K, might be the new thing! If you have feed back, comments, suggestions or gripes, please let us know here : sukigod@bigshoota.com

Till later (sometime around the first of the year), everyone have a great summer, get out there and get some sun! We’ll try to post here for other tournament announcements around the area to help build some SEO and keep those connections alive, and as always, make sure you’re connected to the Frozen North Gaming Club on Facebook!

Randy Tenvoorde and the entire staff of Granite City Waaagh!Fest!

Squigs ahoy!

Jun-18-2014

squigs-finalSo, after a few years of trying to make these happen, we’ve finally done it!  These are the big prize take aways along with the etched liter beer mug! About the size of a basketball, cuddly, and hungry as hell! You gotta play if you want a chance to win one of these cute squiggily beasts! There are open spots left so register today!

obj7Our spore bretheren, Brian, has been busily working his grots off for this years Waaagh!Fest! and has come up with something fun and themed for this years objective markers. Since he’s gone through all that trouble, this mean YOU, the player, will not need to bring your own objective markers to Waaagh!Fest! as they will be provided for each game. :)

See, we DO love you folks!

Games Workshop dropped a whole shed-load of FAQ’s yesterday. Everyone gets updated for 7th Edition (except Sisters…). Yay! Since almost all of these changes/FAQ’s/errata’s are focused on the conversion to 7th Edition, we will NOT be using these new FAQ’s for Granite City Waaagh!Fest! this year.

Yes, there are certain fixes that would balance things out (Helldrake templates) but would you really like to give up all of your psychic powers? (JotWW anyone?) Because it will be nearly impossible to cherry pick which changes are valid and which ones to ignore, we’ve chosen this route instead for the sake of simplicity for everyone.

Again, we are NOT using the new FAQ’s for Waaagh!Fest! Please use the last possible, known FAQ for the BRB and your codex. I will be looking for an archived set up links for those who don’t have them already and post it here.

Time to let the artist nob and design boyz have a bit of a respite as they’re finally done with the t-shirt design, and you won’t want to miss this one!

As most years, we’ve been lucky enough to get Deviantart star, Taytonclait, as our “resident” orky artist. The shirts are $16.00 and are only produced in very small quantities once a year, so yes, we can call them Limited Edition (and charging more ;) )

Head on over to the official Waaagh!Fest! t-shirt order page to snag yours today!

Roolz Update

May-15-2014

I know, it’s a little thing, but you’d be surprised at how many “little things” I get questions about ;)

Because we’re so cool and don’t want all of you having to do more work than necessary, players will not be required to bring their own objective markers for this years tournament. See? We’re looking out for ya all! That, and Brian has a streak for self torture having to produce all of the markers himself for this years theme (he offered, we didn’t lock him in a Black Ship or anything).

So, long story short, you don’t have to provide your own objective markers this year.

Enjoy!

teaser2Listen up ya worthless grots. We’ve put the Waaagh!Fest! armor (t-shirts) up for sale today on our site. Head on over and check out the in-process design and grab yers today! As we’ve been able to manage for the last three years, we have the amazingly talented DeveantArt artist, TaytonClait on board doing a custom themed piece of work to liven up our shirts and artwork. We’ve finalized the lineart and are now working into the coloring phase. His work has been seen on our shirts at many RTT tournaments and GT events over the years and we’re so glad to continue having him work with us on these.

There’s only about four weeks to place your order so we can get them back from the printer in time so don’t delay!
