Arch Enemy 2018 – Warhammer 40K Doubles

Posted on April 19th, 2018 under , , , . Posted by

Arch Enemy held this year was W40K doubles format. It was a great opportunity to test a few ideas and also to fine tune the System that we plan to have in place with GuardCon in September. It attracted a good crowd as 40K doubles really does encourage some friendly banter and fun times. With four players to a table, it creates some memorable moments that you and your mate can celebrate or lament together.

With a good spread of twenty teams we got some great C&C over the weekend. Some spectacular games were witnessed and great fun was had. From the experience we can say that a much easier and neater scoring system will be used in our next event which will fix almost all the issues we encountered. Also smaller Army points allowance for each team will speed up games, making sure each team still has enough points so they can field an effective force whichever faction they choose. Expect a up to date players pack at our next event ‘International Tabletop Day’ in April.

Congratulations to the winners and a big thank you to the competitors. Continue to support your local events and lets build on the great game we have community!
