Hello friends and gamers alike. This week I have some good news for everyone.

First, let me congratulate the winners of our Warhammer 40K tournament last Saturday. Tom Schmale (Chaos Marines w/ Daemons allied) took fourth place, getting just edged out by Justin “The King of the Castle” Adams (Necrons), who took third. In second place was Steve “Gloves” Burrows (Eldar), and taking the top spot for his first time after many second place showings was Paul Porch (Space Wolves w/ Grey Knights allied). Well done to everyone who attended!

The spoiler for M14 has finally been completed. While there was a bit of an upset that certain cards weren’t included in the set, we still got some pretty sweet ones!

Standard Goblins

Kevin

For those of you that don’t know, the Comic Book Store had a record breaking 87 person tournament last Sunday for one of our crazy planeswalker tournaments.

Somebody 7-0’d the largest Standard tournament we’ve ever held with a strategy that most players wouldn’t have even thought existed. Christopher smashed through the tournament with his little green men, beating quite a few tier 1 decks on the way. So by now I’m sure you’re itching to see a decklist, but I’ve got something even better! I asked Christopher to write a bit about his deck. So without further delay, here’s Christopher’s take on Standard Goblins!

Cookout for the Apocalypse

Another week, and a slight break in the total wave of the first of summer’s heat. What should also be making you sweaty is news of the Warhammer 40k Apocalypse being revised and released this coming weekend, July the 6th. If you don’t know all that is coming in that release, here is a quick review (in no particular order):

The Apocalypse rule book, new super weapon templates, stratagem cards and various terrain pieces, as well as two super heavies, one for Chaos Marines and one for Necrons. There is excitement to be found there for everyone I think. Think of what you might want and what you might need.
