Warhammer 40,000 Beginner's Event

Snake Eyes Gaming will be holding a Beginner's Event for Warhammer 40,000. The Beginner's Event is an opportunity for people to learn to play Warhammer 40,000 alongside other new players and crafty veterans.

Each player brings a 500 point force (consisting of 1HQ, 1+ Troop, 0-2 Elite, 0-2 Fast Attack, and 0-2 Heavy Support) selected from a current Warhammer 40,000 Codex and plays four missions that are designed to guide new players through learning the basic rules. Veterans players are encouraged to attend and help players that are new to the community learn the rules. We will have pre-built armies on hand for those of you that do not have your own Warhammer 40,000 army.

There is no time for peace.  No respite.  No forgiveness.  There is only WAR.
