Bugeater 2018 Announcement Coming Soon!

We are excited to begin sharing information about the 2018 Bugeater!  The event will be held on June 1st-3rd, 2018 at Millard West High School.  Due to the growth that we had this past year, we were able to secure even more space at the school compared to previous events.  That’s good news, because we are expanding the games that we are offering for next year’s Bugeater.  We will begin posting specific event details and the basic schedule of events later this week, but we want you to mark your calendars now for the biggest Bugeater yet!  More details to come, but the big things you’ll want to know now:

All of your favorite events are back! Warhammer 40k, Bolt Action, Horus Heresy, Warmachine & Hordes, Kings of War, Infinity, Dropzone and Dropfleet Commander, and Infinity are back.  They’ll be joined by several new events.  We have added these new events based on player request, and seeking out and finding tournament staff who are experienced with those games that can run a high quality event for you.  So if you play any of these games – get ready!  New to the 2018 Bugeater will be Age of Sigmar, Batman, Malifaux, Star Wars: Armada, and more!

With 8th edition on the scene for 40k, we are looking to make our largest, longest running event even bigger and better next year.  So in a month, if you’re in the area, come to the Khornehusker RTT held here in Omaha, Nebraska.  We will be testing some things for next year’s Bugeater, and the winner gets a free ticket to the 40k GT at the Bugeater!  Check our facebook page for more information.

Thank you!

Everyone – thank you SO MUCH for attending the 7th Bugeater this past weekend. We raised a little over $3800 for the debate programs. We will start with the results from our largest event – the 40k GT.

We report results in two ways – overall results that factor in battle record, painting, and sportsmanship; and battle results that only look at win/loss/draw and battle points.

The Overall Results can be found here: http://gt.bugeatergames.com/…/2017/06/40kResults_Overall.pdf

The Battle Results can be found here:
http://gt.bugeatergames.com/…/uploads/2017/06/40kResults_Ba…

For purposes of the ITC we submit the *battle* results. So the rankings you see on the battle results pdf are what we turn in. We will submit scores to the ITC in *TWO* days. Please make sure your name and club are correct so you get credit for your results.

Once 8th edition has had some time we will send out a survey to get player input on what you would like to see. In the meantime, thanks again for coming to Bugeater #7. We hope to see you again at Bugeater #8!

Day 2 Starts Tomorrow!

We had a great first day at the Bugeater!
 
Remember that tomorrow and Sunday you enter through the main doors at Millard North. Go up the stairs and hang a right – you’ll see the hallway towards the event. There will be a giant 9 foot primaris marine cardboard cutout greeting you!
 
Times for events tomorrow:
 
40k Check In begins at 7 am. Round 1 begins at 8 am
Kings of War – Check in at 8 am. Round 1 begins at 9 am
Bolt Action – Check in starts at 8 am
Dropzone Commander, Horus Heresy, Infinity, and Warmahordes all have report times of 9 am
 
IMPORTANT FOR 40k PLAYERS:
 
We could not start set up tonight for 40k until 4 hours after our intended time because the room was double booked. We got most terrain set up done, but we had to leave before the last 4 or 5 tables were finished (as in they were arming the security system). So please be patient tomorrow as we finish terrain set up.
 
We had a surge of last minute registrations, so we have two events in the main walk way area – Warmahordes and Horus Heresy. As a result, we will be doing all set up and entry for the Golden Gobbo SUNDAY (we have fewer events on Sunday, so more room).
 
Thanks again to everyone attending, and we are excited for day 2 to start tomorrow!
IMPORTANT FOR ALL PLAYERS: We will post all updates on our facebook page.  Please check there until the weekend as done, at which point we will upload results to this page!

The countdown is here! It is Bugeater week!

Two things for today!

First, if you want an easy way to move around the tournament with your army this weekend, consider renting an army tray from Hammerhead Games. For $10 you’ll get a tray to use, with the money going to help the debate programs! If you really like the tray, the $10 can go towards purchasing the tray itself!

Second, remember that we have our painting and modeling competition running this weekend, the Golden Gobbo! We have categories for historical miniatures, fantasy miniatures, and sci fi miniatures. Have a really awesome display you want to enter? We have a category for that! You can enter models whether you’re using them in competitive play or not! We judge all entries on Sunday. If you entered into a 2 or 3 day event, you get one entry free of charge. Additional entries are $5!

One month until the Bugeater!

We are excited to see everyone at Millard North (NOT West – remember that! West is closed for construction this year!) in a month!

Tickets are still on sale, so make sure you get yours before coming!  Everyone attending a multiday event will be getting a Bugeater swag bag and a free entry into the Golden Gobbo painting competition.  Everyone getting a bag will receive the Bugeater GT 2017 patch and the Bugeater 2017 custom dice, plus at least one other item unique for their game system.

We have some exciting announcements over the next few days to get you hyped, along with some important information about specific events.  Keep an eye here and on our facebook page!

Tickets are on sale!

Folks tickets are on sale for almost all of our events (X-Wing coming soon!) so grab your tickets today before events sell out.  We are excited to have another full slate of events this year, including the inaugural year for Horus Heresy and X-Wing.

Horus Heresy

We are excited to be adding Horus Heresy to the Bugeater!  We are having several one day events that all tie together as part of a 3 day narrative campaign: the Conquest of Marnex IV.

  • Friday players can participate in EITHER a Battlefleet Gothic mega battle representing the two fleets engaging above the planet OR they can participate in a Horus Heresy mega battle representing the initial contact between the two sides (both events happen concurrently and influence once another)
  • Saturday players can participate in a 3 round, 2500 point friendly tournament.
  • Sunday players can participate in EITHER several missions or Zone Mortalis OR they can participate in two multiplayer battles representing the final war zones of the campaign (both events happen concurrently and influence one another).
