The world of 40K gets explored in an all new board game series with HEROES OF BLACK REACH!

On the hive-world of Black Reach, and Ork Waaagh! breaks, jeopardizing this sector of the galaxy!

Aid the Ultramarines in their merciless fight against the Warlord Zanzag and relive the grim adventures of Captain Cato Sicarius and Sergeant Scout Marines Torias Telion!

A collaboration between Games Workshop and Devil Pig Games (Heroes of Normandie), Heroes of Black Reach combines Warhammer 40,000 and Heroes Tactical System of Heroes of Normandie into a new, 2-player wargame.

Heroes of Black reach introduces a campaign with eight scenarios between the Ultramarines and Orks.


STARS ALIGHT is one of the neatest games we’ve seen in a minute!

Fill the star with skies, and catch them as they shoot!

The stars are out, and players take turns spotting their color stars in the sky by playing constellation cards to the map. Once the sky is full of stars, they start to twinkle, or flip to the reverse color. When the same color stars create a line across the sky, they shoot and disappear! The first stargazer to catch five shooting stars is the winner!

Never played? No worries! Andrew Miller will be running the event and can teach you everything you need to know to get started. Plus, many of our top players started not too long ago and love introducing new players to the game!

PLAY FORMAT: In Dice Masters, two players take the role of masterminds directing the actions of a team of powerful supers (represented by dice) to battle each other! Each turn, you’ll roll your dice to see what resources you have available, buy dice, send your team members into the field, and then strike at the enemy mastermind. Reduce the opposing mastermind’s life to zero, and save the day!

Monday Night Heroclix: Top Gear

Bring 250 points of figures from home. Up to 200 points of those figures have to be vehicles (2 vehicle limit tops) and purchase one booster to make a 400-point team. Mulligans allowed for boosters.

Two maps will be set up for each player. Vehicles cannot move through characters, must stop when they are adjacent to an opposing character, and have Passengers:0 for this event. Players without vehicles can substitute a figure with HSS on their starting click and a movement of 10+ for their two vehicles.

The player wins a major victory (full points), if their vehicle ends in the opponent’s starting area. If all vehicles on the board are destroyed, then both players will tie at 200 points.

Restrictions: No resources, special objects, team bases, or ID cards. Colossal/Giant Size figures limited to 1 per build.

All players are welcome regardless of whether this is your first tournament or your 100th tournament! Please arrive by 5:45 if possible.

New players: You not have all of the figures required for this event. If you are brand new and want to play – just bring what you have or you can borrow a team from me. I’d rather have everyone there and having fun than not be able to play!
