Well it’s the Fall season, which means that the holiday months are approaching. That tends to mean that people need a little extra push to get some painting accomplished, so it’s time for the First-Annual TANKS-Giving Event at Drawbridge Games!
WHEN: Thursday, November 4th. Set-up for game, pictures, and painting accomplishments inspection at 7pm, dice start at 7:30pm.
WHY: A motivation to paint tanks and cars of all types for our 40k armies, and then to field them in one glorious free-for-all battle. Fun at the event, motivation for painting new things, and prizes!
WHAT: Players can bring up to 50 PL of tanks and sorta-tank-like vehicles (see full list below). All models must be painted to tabletop standard. The things you field DO NOT need to have the same keyword! So if you want to field a Land Raider next to a Rukkatrukk Squiggbuggy and a Dark Eldar Ravager, well… do it. No HQ, character, or named vehicles allowed, and nothing with the Titanic keyword or that fills a Lord of War slot. (Don’t worry, we’ll have future big events where those bad boys can be fielded!)
HOW: There will be a door prize raffle with some great 40k prizes as always for our big events. Everyone who shows up with a painted force, from a single tank to a full 50 PL of mixed vehicles from various factions, gets one name entry. For each thing that you have shared in advance in built- or primed-only form (post on the Drawbridge Events page), and bring painted, you’ll get an extra ticket with your name in the prize drawing. The winner (last tank or team of tanks standing) will get five extra tickets with their name in the drawing. As for the game, we’ll use the playing card system as often is the case with our big events: each round every player will be dealt a card that will determine turn order.
WHO: You! Entry is free for Drawbridge Gatecrasher Members (only $35 for the entire year, and includes 10% discount on all purchases for that year plus 20% on select pre-orders), and $5 for non-members.
So what can you bring? Well, things with tracks and wheels mostly, but certainly skimmer tanks too. There are a few exceptions for armies that have limited options (e.g. Tyranids get their two gun-focused bio-beasts, Ad Mech get a sorta-walker tank option with the Dunecrawler).

So that’s the set-up. Below is the list. Again, you can bring combinations across different factions as you’d like. So it’s a great time to experiment with something new alongside an existing force, or make progress on a few projects you’ve got sitting in the pile of shame. I’m looking forward to seeing just how much armored Fury we can muster!
