July 2015 Combat Patrol Tournament

Saturday, July 18 2015 
Fee: $10

Last updated 2015.06.06 - Red indicates recent change

To promote the hobby to newer players and to encourage the expansion of the collections of seasoned players, we're holding a Combat Patrol tournament in July. We'd love to see players embrace a new army or expand their current one and play their new models in our first annual combat patrol tournament. Thanks goes out to the folks at Adepticon for the idea of running games such as this, but you'll note that our format features a few changes. Please read the rules carefully.

Note that this is an early announcement and the rules may change slightly as players weigh in on the format.


Although we could follow our usual hectic schedule and get up to 8 games in, we've decided to relax the schedule a bit and get 6 games in and go for a later start and earlier finish for this tournament.
