This is the 10th year for the WGC Warhammer 40K GT and for the third year we are incorporating the Texas State 40K Championship and Texas Team Championship into one momentous event. We are looking to have the best event yet this year with some format changes. Below are the details:

  • 2000 Points battle forged army with no more than 3 Detachments.
  • ITC format i.e.: Beta Rules are in effect, bottom floors of ruins block line of sight.
  • Best Overall: A total of Battle Points, Hobby score, and Sportsmanship.
  • Best Painted: Will be scored separately by secret judges on Sunday. You must have a Hobby score of 10 to qualify for Best Painted.
  • Best General: Will be based on top ITC score for the event.
  • Best Sport: Will be judged on Best Game Vote.

The Texas Circuit Championships are open to all players and teams who participate in the Texas GT circuit.  You don’t even have to be from Texas.  So how do you win? Each player’s top 3 scores from the Texas GTs will be added together. So you will need to attend at least 3 of the 5 events to qualify.  Because each of the different Texas GTs has their own flavor and scoring system, your placing in the event will determine your Championship score (i.e. First Place is 1 point, Second Place is 2 points, etc.). The lowest score will determine who goes home with the coveted Texas Champion’s Belt!

Team scoring will be similar to the championship.  The top 5 finishers of each team at each GT will be added together.  The team with the lowest score across 3 of 5 GTs will be the Texas Circuit Team Champion. This means your team will need to have at least 5 players in at least 3 GTs to qualify.  Team hopping to pad scores will be discouraged, and any player doing so will have their scores disallowed.

Players can increase their odds of winning by attending more events and trying to better their scores. Teams can increase their odds also by bringing more members.  This also helps to discourage drops at all events as every place a player drops adds a point to that player’s score.

Awards will be given out at WGC, and in the event of a tie, the players’ WGC GT scores will determine the winner.

So, get ready! Bring your best game, bring your friends, and take on the:
