GRAND TOURNAMENT

The NOVA Open’s 40K GT is an eight round tournament. After Round 4, your record will be effectively reset, and you will be seeded in a bracket of 15 other players closest to you in win-loss record. Bracket seeds are determined by the total points you score in Rounds 1-4. Once the event is bracketed, you will play exclusively within your bracket until the completion of the eighth round. All players are expected to complete all eight rounds, unless they indicate withdrawal on their Round 6 scorecard to participate in alternate Sunday activities.

NARRATIVE

The ongoing conflict between the Virtue and Humanity continues! Following last year's close fought upset success, Humanity strives to
secure its fledgling rebellion on the fringes of Virtue space.  This year's event features a much more flexible registration format enabling players to participate without making a commitment for the whole convention, while those that do will of course just enjoy it all the more!  See the event primer for details.

NARRATIVE APOCALYPSE

Our 2017 Narrative concludes with an all-day Apocalypse on Sunday! The Narrative Warlords will all meet on a single field of battle, with several other mega-battles held alongside.  This is a great chance to bring out your heaviest models, but our well tested Apocalypse format ensures that even the lowest sergeant and grunt can still swing the day in a great, strategic game.  See the event primer for details.

TRIOS TEAM TOURNAMENT

The Warhammer 40,000 Trios Team Tournament at the NOVA Open is a twist on always-popular team play for 40k. Players register and compete in teams of three. Over the course of three rounds on Thursday each player battles once on their own using a full size army list, and twice using a smaller list partnered with each of their teammates. This gives players a chance to field all their usual toys, and requires them to be able to fight on their own, but also ensures two great games battling alongside two friends, an excellent way to play 40k! NOVA 40k Trios is intended to be a fun, casual event, with significant emphasis on teams' narrative theme, and an individual Warlord Achievements track alongside the primary team scoring. See the event primer for details.
