This is cool...
My LGS (In Windsor, Ontario) is having a Warhammer 40,000 Tank Battle day and it's the first time I've been curious about a 40k event in years. The idea is simple - to enter, you buy a tank from the store between now and the game day, paint it up and then compete. Day of, you get points for kills and lose points for each death at which point you respawn at your start point. There will also be a painting competition and prizes. Loner tanks available if you want to bring a friend.
What I really like about this is,
- It's a great way for a store to generate sales.
- It's a fantastic way to create interest in the game and introduce it to new players.
- It's a way to let gamers get creative with vehicle models.
- It's a really fun way to spend a day.
It's been a lonnnng time since I've played Warhammer instead of WarmaHordes, but I gotta say.. I'm tempted. Mainly though, I just wanted to share this idea to other stores and tournament organizers as an excellent method to put on a fun event and make some money.
