Registration for NOVA starts February 1st, and the preliminary event packs are up for perusal. The fine folks putting on the events last year have some cool stuff planned for 2017 and I'm looking forward to attending!

With Inferno coming out soon and providing my beloved Thousand Sons with legion rules, perhaps I can avenge my 0 and 7 record from last year, too!

...Though let's be honest, probably not. :D

Victory! Got in to the Opening Salvo on Thursday, the Team Doubles on Friday and the Escalation Campaign on Saturday. After my 0-7 record last year with the Thousand Sons, we're coming back strong this year!

 

...Mostly because they're going to have actual legion rules this time around, maybe I can pull of a 1-6 record instead! :D

I signed up for the Opening Salvo as well as the Big Blam.  This will be my first Nova, so looking forward to seeing the convention as well as meeting some awesome 30k players.

I signed up for the Opening Salvo, Team Doubles, Big Blam, and Escalation events.  Just waiting for Inferno to drop this weekend so I can build out the Custodes.  Going to be a great event again! 

 

Mordian, we'll have to have to get a T-Sons/Custodes match in at some point that weekend.  Just wouldn't be right without it I think.

Also my first Nova.  I've signed up for Opening Salvo and the team doubles events.  Will be defecting to Blood Bowl on the Friday night and Saturday before finishing up with some painting tutorials on the Sunday.  Though whether I am sober enough to paint on Sunday morning remains to be seen...

Does anyone have an idea if they are going to be using the alternate Destroyer weapon rules or are they just sticking with the basic D weapon table?

One month out, and I am ready to rumble. Got the Thousand Sons and their Zhao Arkkad cronies packed. Maybe this year they won't go 0-6.

...Nah, who am I kidding - They'll either die like dogs or flee like cowards! :D

Looking forward to seeing y'all there!

Ditto Mordian.  My Custodes are ready to meet you on the field for our rematch.  Looking forward to another great weekend of gaming and hanging out with great people.

Mordan,

I know you don't do Facebook, so I figured I'd let you know we are doing a last minute run of T-Shirts:
‚Äčhttps://novaopenstor.../EventItem/1249

 

They will be available for preorder for another 10 days or so-.

Heading to the airport, see y'all soon!

Taking wagers on my Thousand Sons performance. Can I best last year's record of 0-6?

...Yeah, probably not - but it's going to be a blast anyway! :D

I'll have a snout around the FW booth for event-only minis, and will pick up a few for our members who can't make it to the event. At GenCon pickings were slim, just the terminator librarian and the thunder hammer cataphractii dude.
