The Worthiest Adversary is on the Warpath. Next week, June 9 through June 10 at Heroes Comics and Gaming in downtown Louisville, KY. Five rounds of Warhammer 40k, 2000 point battle forged games for match play. Registration is $50, covering some provided food and drinks per day as well as prize support. The Slugga is a part of the Mid America Gaming Series (MAGS) which culminates at GENCON with the grand finale on August 3 through August 4.
Louisville is a great town that can accommodate a large group of 40k players easily and is centrally located to not be too far of a drive from the South East, North East, and Mid America. Put on by the Bourbon Brothers Wargaming Club, an awesome group of guys, for the first time ever, the Louisville Slugga features a mission set written by none other than Paul Murphy, host of the Forge the Narrative podcast. Find those missions here.
The missions are unique in some ways. With random game turns, primary objectives vary from progressives to end game, to also include the utilization of relics in one of the missions. Secondaries can vary just as widely from board control to something like Big Game Hunter but being set for both characters rather than an a la carte of player choices. Tertiary objectives are the same for each mission, earning one point for every full 500 points that a player can destroy. The Adversary’s favorite part of these missions is the scoring of primary objectives. At a glance, and maybe a few test games, it should be difficult for competitive opponents to score against one another to the effect of a landslide one way or the other. The next big piece to understand is that there is no continuation of the game post-tabling. If you table your opponent, put your dice down and start tallying your score because your game is over right then! So play with strategy, not just for the sheer kill, you blood thirsty berserkers! Turn one tabling might just mean a draw for primary objectives!
At the time of this article being published, approximately 40 players (and counting) are expected in attendance, some of those are competitive adversaries from across the region and beyond.
Registration is still open and many more are welcome. Lists were technically due today, May 31, but there is no penalty for late submission, only some possible raffle prizes for those who submitted them in a timely fashion!
The Worthiest Adversary is on the Warpath and looks forward to rolling dice across from you at the Louisville Slugga!
