40k 1850 RTT at huzzah hobbies this sunday Feb 16th.

Hey all,

Just wanted to let everyone know our monthly RTT at Huzzah Hobbies in Ashburn, VA www.huzzahhobbies.com will be held this Sunday Feb 16th. Registration starts at 10am, and games begin at 10:45. If you are going to be late please call the store at 703-466-0460 and let us know.

Entry fee is $15, and covers a pizza lunch and two drinks. The remaining cash is rolled entirely into prize support.

Prize support will be based on attendance and given as follows

1st - 2nd - 3rd

and two additional floater awards, this will be decided at the event based on attendance and army quality. They can range from a mid-pack award given to the person in the dead middle for BP's, to a last place award, to a best painted. This is to mix it up and encourage people who are not on the top tables to still play and have fun, knowing they still might win a prize.


We allow all codex's, dataslates, and stronghold assault - EXCLUDING any AV15 buildings, D-Weapons, networked buildings, and void shields.

Formations are allowed, but are treated as a separate special detachment whose limit is 0-1, so multiple formations are not allowed.

Escalation is not allowed.

Forgeworld 40k approved models are only allowed if we are contacted in advance of the event to ask about specific models. This allows us to review the rules of the model in question and determine if its reasonable or not.  Please contact me or leave a reply to this post to ask.

We will be following NOVA Open FAQ's unless otherwise stated by the judge at the event.

Proxies are totally fine as long as they are roughly the same size as the model being proxied, and use the same base.

Painting is not required.

This event is run and tracked in torrent of fire. www.torrentoffire.com.


  1. Sigh... Just as I get a Void Shield Generator model built, it gets banned.

  2. >_<

    hilarity trolling I know =0

    Would be nice if GW actually put out a model for it though; and for all of the terrain in that book. Their quality has been pretty good lately and I'd bet it would turn out nice.

  3. No I actually built a reasonably sized model with some cool looking plasma-coil type details to use as a VSG. I was even thinking of doing some lighting effects to indicate the status of the shields.

  4. tell you what, if you want to bring it along, we can try it out for a day and see how it goes.

  5. I appreciate the gesture, James. But, I'd rather not have you reverse a stated rule on my account.

  6. We can try it out next month then!

    I'm worried about the rules implications of it, for the NOVA Trios, I wrote a specific FAQ on how to handle void shields, we can use that.

  7. OK, I'll bring it next month and be your guinea pig.

  8. Tetras? I'm looking at coming in March (assuming you're having one then).
