August Warmachine and Hordes Event Schedule

ALL MONTH LEAGUE: GRYMKIN – ROTTEN BOUNTY! (FREE)
We understand that not everyone can play Saturdays, so to embrace this we have opened up the League Play to any day during the month of August. Make sure to check in with a staff member when you play your league games!

In addition, there have been some changes to the leagues. Each league will be its own standalone event lasting for one month. This new approach to league play allows players to jump into any narrative league with a fresh start and to participate in all the fun within a single month. Rotten Bounty introduces new mechanics involving unique game cards that all players will receive just for signing up. Additionally, all players who participate in the league until completion will receive a Grymkin gremlin conversion model that can be added to the base of any of their existing models as a fun decoration!
