I am in Roseville MI and the closest GW store to me is the store at Hampton Village in Rochester Hills. Just a little too far for my tastes.

 

Does anyone know of any gaming stores closer to the Macomb County area of Michigan that holds games or events? Or possibly a gaming group or something like that?

I see you posted this in June.  There are two stores you should look at, one is very close to you.  In St. Clair Shore is "Stay & Play Hobbies and Games" on Harper.  We have a group that meets there to play WH40K.   There is also "Gamers Gauntlet" on Hall Rd.

Hey, I am going to be moving back to Michigan soon and will be staying in Saugatuck for a few months until we find a more permanent location to live at. Are there any gaming groups nearby, possibly in Holland? I saw the only hobby store nearby is in Holland but it seems to be more focused on model planes and trains.

There is a local group in Battle Creek and surrounding areas called Cereal Gamers and they have a Facebook page with the same name they use for setting up games and organizing events.

 

There are currently two stores (was three a short while ago) in Battle Creek with GW products and lots of local gamers. Burdette's Comics on Columbis Ave has the official GW dealership in town, the other store in town has been bringing in the product from their other store way over in Fenton to bypass the five mile restriction, meh, not illegal but unethical imho.


Recycling is fun, and cheap!

Hi All. i will be moving to Rochester Hills in early April and was looking for a few communities to explore so I can meet fellow gamers etc. I am aware there is an actual GW store in town (I'm currently in MA and there haven't been any out here for a while) but beyond that what are my options. I currently play 40k and am going to be collecting a horus Heresy army in the current months. Thank you.

Bump time. Anyone know of any stores or players in the Kalamazoo area?

There are a ton of great people playing Warhammer in the Kalamazoo/Battle Creek region, and we meet at Chronocade in Richland (Gull Lake area). The shop owners play the game, are incredibly personable and are very professional about stock, pricing and events.

PLEASE join us on Wednesdays 12 noon until 9-10 pm. You are very welcome!

Anyone out there in West Michigan who likes the 40k universe but does not like the 40k rules want to try something different? I live in Caledonia, have Orks, IG and AdMech but don't like the tourney system and the rules, looking for a like mind or two.

Detroit metro Area, GW Hampton Villiage

 

 
The Hampton Village 30k Escalation League is underway! 
 
As we know most gamers HATE to read instructions when it comes to events but YOU MUST READ THESE AND UNDERSTAND THEM TO PARTICIPATE!
If you do not it may preclude you from participating.
 
If you have questions afterwards, please ask a Commissioner.
 
Point of Contact: John Rhodes
JRhodes08@aol.com
herb_harris@yahoo.com
 
What you need to do:
 
Pick an Army/Legion/Faction (Traitor or Loyalist)
Start painting in preparation for the schedule listed below!
 
Want to play, but don't have an army?
That’s an easy thing to fix. If you are interested in playing in the league, but have yet to start a heresy era army, then buying a Betrayal at Calth starter set is the best place to start!  
Being that it is an all plastic kit, you are open to all kinds of conversion work, to make your legion of choice, truly yours. It also was made to go along with Forge Worlds legion upgrade kits. 
 
How does it work?
The Hampton Village 30k Escalation League will be broken into Five Phases and one bonus phase.
 
The primary purpose of the league is to have fun while providing a structured approach for your purchases, assembly and painting of your Horus Heresy armies! If you have been on the fence about starting a Horus Heresy army - this is the time to start.
 
Note: As this is a league that is trying to embrace the narrative of the Horus Heresy and the bloodshed that was caused because of it, we ask that your armies be fluffy in the sense that they would have a strong background. 
 
 
The official events and narrative follow the requirements:
 
Only painted models and terrain on the tables. (3 color minimum, bases completed)
Good sportsmanship with a narrative focus.
 
In addition, it should be noted that models for the Horus Heresy SHOULD be era-appropriate where such options exist. The ENTIRE point of Horus Heresy gaming is to embrace the narrative of the war as it raged across the galaxy. Players participating in the Escalation League should consider these factors when deciding whether to get involved or not. If any question exists regarding whether a model is appropriate or not, it will be decided by the Escalation League Commissioner.
 
Note: This means that models such as a Whirlwind cannot be used as a whirlwind scorpius, as the standard pattern whirlwind exists in the 30k game and this would lead to confusion when playing. If you are unsure about a specific model, please ask the Escalation League Commissioner. 
 
 
Be aware that units in Horus Heresy Gaming (30k) are typically much more expensive in points than their counterparts in Warhammer 40k. Painting 150+ points is about the cost of a basic 10 man Tactical Marine squad with a transport. So getting to these higher point values is not nearly as daunting as it looks. The hardest part is picking a faction/legion and a paint scheme!
 
The Narrative Games will focus almost entirely on the Traitor vs Loyalist dynamic, with perhaps Mechanicum/Solar Auxillia potentially playing for the opposite side to balance out number of players. More information on this narrative is coming soon...
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Legions
As this escalation league is based on the Horus Heresy, the choice for legions is very specific (as the legions have yet to be broken apart). 
 
 
What this means is that the legion you pick MUST be on of the original 18.
 
Shattered legions will be allowed, but only after Phase 2, not before. 
 
Black shields lists are allowed, and they can decide what side of the war they are going to fight on. 
 
Unbound armies are not made for the Horus Heresy game, they are not allowed.
 
Victory
Points for the league will be determined at the end of each phase of the league. There will be points rewarded for games won, painting, etc.
 
The side with the most points at the end of the league, wins.  
 
 
 
 
 
 
The Escalation Phases:
As mentioned earlier, the Escalation League will take place over several phases. There are certain restrictions in each phase which may preclude you from including certain models. So please read the below carefully when deciding which models you want to work on first.
 
Phase One: (Infiltration)
Points Value: 750 Points; Must be completed by _____________________  
Missions: Standard 30k Games (Smaller table)
Restrictions: No Primarchs, No Super Heavies, No Vehicles
 
Phase Two: (Invasion) 
Points Value: 1000 Points; Must be completed by __________________
Missions: Standard 30k Games (Smaller Table), Team Games
Restrictions: No Primarchs, No Super Heavies, No Vehicles
 
Phase Three: (Beachhead)
Points Value: 1500 Points; Must be completed by _________________ 
Missions: Standard 30k Games, Team Games
Restrictions: No Primarchs, No Super Heavies 
 
Phase Four: (Direct Action)
Points Value: 2000 Points; Must be complete by ___________________ 
Missions: Standard 30k Games, Team Games
Restrictions: No Super Heavies
 
Phase Five: (Seize the Prize)
Points Value: 2500 Points; Must be completed by __________________
Missions: Standard 30k Games, Team Games
Restrictions: None
 
Bonus Phase: (Apocalypse!)
Points Value: 3500 Points
Missions: Standard 30k Games, Team Games, Apocalypse sized Team Game.
Restrictions: None! This is what the Heresy is all about!!
