Hey everyone for those who live out in the Northwest suburbs or around theres a local game shop called Tyton Games in Villa Park. They have between 5-6 tables and have various events going on every moment.


I myself will be hosting an event every month with a different spin on it.


The next event we will be doing is on Feb 25th,


We will be doing a 750pt Troop Tournament.

Gameplay Rules
1. The tournament will be based off of 3 rounds. Each round will be a different objective based mission (no tactical objectives will be used) and in each round everyone will be playing the same mission.
2. Games will be played on a 4x4 table
3. Winner of each mission will get 5 points, tie will give 3 points to each, and a loss gives 1. On top of this you gain the amount of victory points scored in game divided by half and rounded down. (I.e. I scored 5VP in game and won, so I get 5 for winning and 2 VP for what I scored in game.
4. We will also be giving 3pt bonus (1pt per round) for any army that is fully painted and based to tabletop standards. (At least 3 colors, can't just prime your army and call it painted...)
5. *Pending rule* Need to ask Ty if he's willing to do this but anyone who writes a bio on their troop force and what it's doing there will have a chance to win 2pts if Ty chooses it as the best.

Rules for Armies
1. Army can consist of only Troop Choices. Anything that would be legal for a troop choice to take is fine (I.e. Heavy weapons, Transports, etc...) 1-6 Troop choices, nothing from the HQ, Fast Attack, Elite, Heavy, LOW, Fortifications data sheets.
2. No Formations, Detachments, Forgeworld.
3. Army must come from one codex.
4. Max 6 troop choices.

There will be a $5 entry fee with a standard prize pool
1st place: 50%
2nd place: 25%
3rd place: 15%
Best Painted Army: 10%


If your interested let me know or go on it! It's a great store run by some pretty cool people.

Just moved to Chicago, living just a little north of downtown. Anybody trying to meet up for a game, or know of any good groups?

Fairly new to the city myself, living up toward the Lakeview area. Haven't encountered any games or groups yet, but certainly open to getting in some games of 8th.
