The Michigan GT 40K Championships is an opportunity for Warhammer 40K players to celebrate all aspects of our hobby. Generalship, artistry, and sportsmanship will all play their part in determining who will walk away as the champions of the weekend! Once again, we will be a Major Event for the 2018 Independent Tournament Circuit (ITC) so all players will earn points towards the 2018 ITC standings. For the full event rules, model policy, and primer missions, visit our Rules and Mission Packets Page here!
As always, in addition to recognizing our Warmaster (overall champion) and Drillmaster (best theme and appearance), we’ll recognize our Force Champions in each Force Category. This year, we’ve modified our Force Category system to better mesh with the Warhammer 40K 8th edition rules. Players will be placed into a Force Category based on the unifying Faction Keyword of the player’s most expensive detachment. This year’s categories are:
- Angels of Death (Adeptus Astartes)
- Emperor’s Hammers (Astra Militarum)
- Lancers Familia (Imperial Knights)
- Thronesworn (Adeptus Mechanicus, Questor Imperialis, Adeptus Ministorum, Sisters of Silence, Officio Assassinorum, Inquisition, Adeptus Custodes)
- Veterans of the Long War (Heretic Astartes)
- Warptouched (Daemon, Questor Traitoris, Renegades and Heretics, Dark Mechanicus)
- Webway Wanderers (Asuryani, Anhrathe, Drukhari, Harlequins)
- Waaaghlords (Ork)
- Undying (Necrons)
- Greater Good (T’au Empire)
- Devouring Swarm (Tyranid, Genestealer Cult)
Players should indicate what Force Category they intend to compete for when they register. This selection can be changed any time up to and including at onsite registration. Force Categories with less than 2 players registered as of August 30, 2018, may be consolidated with another thematically appropriate category at the GT’s discretion.
