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.
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.
- Loyalists and Traitors are both trying to conquer a Forgeworld that has declared its independence in the midst of the Heresy – 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).
Mark your calendars for our 7th Bugeater GT! It will be held on June 2nd-4th, 2017 in Omaha. We are finalizing our full event list, but for sure you can count on seeing:
Warhammer 40k Friendly Doubles Tournament

Ladies and Gents ~
Please check out tournament information for updates this week. Warhammer 40k updated pack is already posted, and includes the actual missions for rounds 1 and 2 of the tournament for you to practice on. Event pages have been updated with specific schedule information as well.
We will be having advanced check in on Friday (specific times TBD) for at least Warahmmer 40k and Kings of War. We will have a large room that we lock up for people wishing to store their armies and display boards to avoid having to bring them up to the school the day of.
Ladies and Gents we are just about a month away from the Bugeater!
First – excited news – we will have ModCube as one of our sponsors of the event, providing objective markers for our 40k players!
Speaking of 40k, two important items. Our official rules pack will be updated shortly to reflect this:
*We will not be using the new Death from the Skies rules. It adds an additional phase to the game when we’re worried about time, and we have not seen a forgeworld update
*We will not be using the new GW FAQ. There are three primary reasons for this. First, there are some rules changes that are new and significant. These changes would have impacted several players’ lists (I know, we got your emails!). With only a few weeks until go time, this was a significant issue for us. Second, some rulings conflicted with rulings in the ITC FAQ. We did not want to have to resolve all of those discrepancies, mainly because of our third reason. GW made it clear that what they posted was the draft, subject to final modifications. Those modifications would potentially come after the cutoff we set for new rules. Because the document was a work in progress, we decided to go with what we knew.
The hotel block is up – if you call or use the online website the code for our block is MWB. The rooms are 2 queen beds at $99 a night. We have a limited number so grab them quick if you know you plan on staying there! Rooms are available for Friday and Saturday night (covering the full length of the Friday through Sunday stay).
Also 40k players – we are aware that some of the new Space Marine powers are ….. going to require some rulings. We will make some decisons on those ASAP.
Hello folks! Some important updates!
First, our Infinity details are up! Thanks to Chris and Rob for all their work getting Infinity off the ground. We are excited to be added this to the Bugeater this year!
Second – exciting Kings of War news! The Bugeater has been selected as a Clash of Kings Qualifier. That means that the winner of the Bugeater will get a free entry to the Finals for Clash of Kings at Adepticon 2017!
Third – and finally hotel update. We had a major issue with hotel this year so we went back to the hotel we have used in the past. I’m finalizing the paperwork as we speak, but the group rate will be at the Hilton Garden Inn found here: http://hiltongardeninn3.hilton.com/en/hotels/nebraska/hilton-garden-inn-omaha-west-OMAWEGI/index.html
The second the group rate is up we’ll let you know!
After looking over player feedback concerning the use of the ITC FAQ, we determined that for the purposes of the Bugeater we will use the document in its entirety. The overwhelming feedback we received was to use the FAQ unchanged OR identifying “must have” rulings from the FAQ and not identifying anything they’d like to see us rule differently. There were a few suggestions for modification, but they were unique (so no one suggested the same change twice) and either we concurred with the ITC’s ruling OR we were fine either way, but preferred to remain consistent with other events for the sake of simplicity.
Two things will be put into the pack to avoid any confusion:
*Yes, super heavy fliers/creatures are allowed. You just have to be under the points cap specified.
*Yes, we will be allowing the Dread Mob Army List, but make sure you have a copy of the update from Forgeworld: https://www.forgeworld.co.uk/resources/fw_site/fw_pdfs/Warhammer_40000/Ork_Dread_Mob_Army_List_Update.pdf
We were hoping to have hotel info but we are a little behind on that. We should get it posted ASAP. We’ll also start posting about prize support for our various events. Stay tuned for that! If you’re going to Adepticon, many of our staff will be there – look for us and say hello!
Finally, if you’re itching to get your tournament on in a month’s time, you should seriously consider the Flying Monkey GT going on a month from now in Wichita. Help make this great event a success – they have several games there and we really want to support and grow more events in this region! Please consider them, there’s a ticket to the Bugeater GT available there! Their website is here: http://www.flyingmonkeygt.com/
