Huzzah Hobbies April RTT SATURDAY April 25th, 2015 UPDATE

I just wanted to let everyone know that we will be allowing the new Eldar codex. Ranged D will be okay for this event as NOVA doesn't have any rules against Ranged D yet, though I'm sure something will happen. We can also be a good beta test for the NOVA! But remember the Wraithknight is becoming a Gargantuan Creature and NOVA doesn't allow that!

Also there have been a few questions about the RTT, I'm going to start putting these in my normal posts but thought I'd also put them here as well.

Are unpainted models allowed?
YES! You can have a full army of gray on the table it doesn't matter. All that matters is you come out and have fun!

Are proxies allowed?
YES! The only thing we ask for is the model that is doing the proxing has to be the same base size as the intended model and be around the same proportions as well. Also if you have multiple proxies you need to be consistent. I don't want to see a Space Marine with a heavy bolter count as a lascannon in one unit and count as a plasma cannon as another. They both need to be either a lascannon or a plasma cannon. Also if you're taking a proxy please give the benefit of the doubt to your opponent for line of sight reasons.

We'll see you this weekend!

EDIT: I've been talking to Mike Brandt about Ranged D and he's asked me to try a new rule for the tournament that NOVA is considering. All D weapons mounted on NON-superheavy/gargantuan units operate at the -1 affecting D-Scythes (D-Scythes would of course not suffer an additional -1) when rolling on the D chart.

EDIT TO MY EDIT YO!: The above only effects Ranged D currently. Your bloodhtirster with the D axe is safe, currently ;)

Huzzah Hobbies April RTT SATURDAY April 25th, 2015

Hey all its that time again, its time to post the April Huzzah Hobbies RTT! I do have some exciting news though, we're now officially an ITC event! For more information about the ITC click here!

This month will be like last months we're going to be using NOVA Open format with the new NOVA Open Missions and FAQ. That means 1850 points and 2 detachments. The detachments rules can be found in the mission primers but I"m just going to copy them here:

You may use up to 2 Detachments (as defined in the Warhammer 40,000 Rulebook) to create your army. These may include unique Codex detachments which themselves are comprised of multiple subcomponents (i.e. the Decurion Detachment found in Codex: Necrons). You must otherwise follow all relevant rules for Battle Forged Army Construction, including use of a Warlord and Primary Detachment (which may not be an Allied Detachment). There are no restrictions on selection of the same Detachment twice (e.g., a Combined Arms Detachment).

The missions can be found here:

And the Draft FAQ can be found here:

Just as an FYI our MAX is 32 players. So if you want to play you should really call up the store and sign up. Please arrive between 10 am and 10:30. Round 1 will start around 10:45am. No need to sign up though it is preferred (and if we reach max and you're not signed up there's nothing I can do!). You can call the store at 703-466-0460 or visit their website for location / number. $15 gets you in and we feed you lunch! Also this is a cash only event. So please hit up that ATM before you get there as the closest one is a few miles down 7.

I'll see you guys there! Please let me know if you have any questions!
