I had no idea that there would be any GW games played at Gencon. I had considered going to play the reboot of L5R ccg but I am not excited enough for that. 40K? that is another thing all together. Is this GT at Gencon now an annual event?

Yes, 40k GT at Gencon is an annual event. ITC would actually like it to become another Major event, but we've not got the numbers yet. We are hoping for a big turn out this year as we have exciting news coming. This year for the 50th anniversary, CAG and Indy40k are pulling all the stops out. Day long Apocalypse game Thursday-Saturday. Kill Team on Thursday. AoS on Thursday and 40k GT Friday and Saturday. Badges to get into gencon are on sale now. Tickets for the events go on sale May 28th Noon Est.

OP Updated: Event ID's have been added for AoS Main Event and 40k GT. Currently there is only 30 tickets for 40k GT. If they sell out, Gencon will add more as need. Lets pack the house!

I know we don't have anything on the list for demos, but you may want to contact GW/FW about it. I know they both plan on being at the convention. They would be able to answer that.

Aw, look at that! GW now recognizes Gencon as a relevant thing!

"New GW" is definitely an improvement.

I'll be at Gencon for once this year, wasnt planning on doing anything 40k related, didnt think there was an event there but I may hop in, kind of awkward trying to plan with a major edition change between now and then

I understand the feeling. I'm the head judge for the event and part of the TO group. We have got some information from GW and other sources to plan for the event and ensure the event will run smoothly. This makes year number 4 we've ran a Warhammer 40k event at Gencon.

Hopefully it works out, I can imagine planning an event like this with an edition change could be stressful. If I can make it to the 40k event (and find a way to pack an army as large as a 40k force on a plane) I'll see you there!

We figured with the event being 2 months after the release of the new edition it would give us enough time to Organize and players to learn the game.

For age of sigmar it says a 15 warscroll max. Do battalions count towards that or is it just units?

I talked to the TO for the AoS event, He said a Battalion would count as 1, but still applies to the wound cap.

Are you saying multiple warscrolls in a battalion count as 1 towards the max? And 40 wound max on battalions would make it impossible to field some of them :(

Thanks for the info, I thought my roster was done :(

It might not be up yet, but there is going to be Apocalypse at Gencon. We have a bunch of more events that are going to be live soon on Gencon's website. I put in a request with them to see when that would happen.

Sorry, I'll pass along your question. You can also ask you AoS questions here. The TO would see them. https://www.facebook.com/events/297943453988282/
