This weekend I played in my first Warhammer 40K tournament ever. It seems like a weird thing considering I started playing 40K 30 years ago… (Mind you, I took a 20+ year break from the game… but that’s a whole other story). I’m not really excited a…

Blood Angels at LVO: Interview with NOVA Open organizer Mike Brandt

LVO was a few weeks ago and I thought it was SUPER COOL to see sooooo many Blood Angels in the top 8 (3 lists with BA in top 8, including one pure BA list, and another one with BA in the top 10). Going into the top 8 was one stand out to me, Mike…

Flames of War 2017 Masters Preview

Posted on October 26th, 2017 under , , , , . Posted by

When the days get shorter and the leaves with their reddish hues fall from the sky, we all know it’s time for the annual FoW Masters Tournament. Each year the top 18 players in North America get an invite to play against those who have excelled during the 2017 tournament season which went from September 2016 to October 2017. The 2017 Masters will take place once again at Games and Stuff in Glenn Burnie Maryland and will feature six tough rounds over two days, the 17-18th of November. When the dust settles after round six, the 2017 champion will be crowned and the 2018 tournament season will begin in earnest.

I have been to a few of the previous master’s events, however I felt this year’s tournament would be even more interesting with the advent of V4 of the game. When the tournament season started everyone was playing V3 and the first big V4 Event wasn’t until the Mid-War Masters at Historicon in July. So, the players at this year’s event had to deal with the change of the rules more than halfway through the season.

Despite the change of rules, the invitees to this year’s event features a lot of the same faces as years past:

Joe Lewis
Chris Fretts
David Vigor
Chris Jackson
Ron Wismer
Chris Novak
James Best Jr.
Tony Davis
Brian Sullivan
Will Yankausky
Keith Gilmour
Andrew Hopson
James Best
James Copland
Ed Sales
Tim McClelland
Rob Duchesne
Bryan Koches

This year, all 6 of the games will take place in the Early War period with each list being set at 1625 points. I will assume that the lack of lists in the Mid-War period made it very hard to use for the event. Plus, who doesn’t love early war?

As he has done in previous years, Battlefront’s event coordinator – David Griffin – and has some curveballs for the players who attend . The 2017 event will be a “reversal tournament” where players will play with their opponent’s army for half of the 6 games. Having played in events like this before, I can attest that this format really challenges your skills as a player.

Dave also plans to keep everyone up to date via Battlefront’s Facebook page and full rules of the tournament can be found here.

The event is open to the public so please stop by to watch or root your favorite FoW player on! I am planning to attend the event and maybe interview some of the participants, so I hope to see you there!
