Dexcon 15: Styled Warhammer 40k 5th Edition GT July 7th/8th in Morristown NJ

Hey all, normally summers are fairly dull in the northeast for 40k....its the long wait from the Colonial till the Nova Open for most players yet I really have no action until the attle for Salvation. Heck even the local RTT scene is dead. Summers are always pick up games only for me. So determined to get some action in I went sprawling through the store finder on the GW site until I found The Only Game in Town (TOGIT). While wandering through their site and their calender I stumbled upon a 40k GT being held! Holy hell how come I never heard of this thing before? It is at, from what I can tell, a larping and roll playing convention. I got this response from the head of "TOGIT"....keep in mind it is to be held on July 7th and 8th.

It is going to be a Warhammer 40K 5th Edition tournament with NOVA Rules. 2000 points. Maximum of 64 players will be allowed to pre-register for the event. I believe that it is planned for 6 rounds but that may be adjusted based on attendance if we get fewer than the 64 players, but that will be dealt with on the day of the tournament. We are looking at it taking place on both Saturday and Sunday to accommodate the 6 rounds.

If you want to pre-register for the event you should go to www.dexposure.com/dexcon15i.html and when you get to the coupon code section enter the code 40KGT151 to get the $10 discount on the Weekend or the complete badge.

Also if you aren't aware there is a Free to enter Team Space Marine Kill Team Challenge with $1000 in cash up for grabs on Friday Night where teams of 5 players fight it out to win.

Thats pretty sweet, 6 games for what comes down to $35! Good NOVA Prep AND that is probably the last weekend of 5th. What a way to send off the edition in style than with a GT in my own backyard. I will be pumping out a 2000 point list using my Shrike/20 Terminator list probably adding in a land Raider instead of razorbacks. So a GT in a month.....Hope to see some of you guys there!

  1. Hey, Kevin,

    DEXCON is not just a LARP and Role Playing convention - we have a rich history dating back to 1992 of partnering with Games Workshop and the Outriders for 40K events.

    I also want to mention that the Kill Team Challenge is a LIVE event - not with models, but with actual players on a large field of play, holding weapons and firing at each other!

    One more thing - Saturday night, after the first four rounds of the GT, we are doing our annual OBLIVION event on The ARENA (the world's largest convention wargaming battlefield). Up to 30 players can be prepared for over 100,000 points on the 50' x 20' ARENA, with dozens of vehicles, titan and gargants (even a full-scale Mega-Gargant).

    We'd love to have everyone come out, as we rebuild our wargaming track!
