I'm running a 40k GT

There will be a 40k tournament this year at Dexcon, it will be the first year this convention is holding a 40k GT. Here is the link to the convention's website,

The GT will be a 2 day, 6 round 2000 point 40k tournament. It will be run as a Nova Open Prep event, and will be using the Nova Open format and scenarios. It will take place on July 7th and 8th, (4 rounds Saturday and 2 Sunday). Fully painted armies are required. (That means at least 3 colors) Standard force organization will be used and no imperial armor or forge world units will be allowed.

The tournament will use 5th edition rules of warhammer 40k regardless of the releases of warhammer 40k 6th edition.

There are 64 available spots for the tournament, and although it's the gt's first year we are expecting a full house.

As the event is part of the convention you will need to purchase a convention pass and input a specific code when you pay to let them know you plan on playing in the GT. As a tournament attendee you will have 2 options of payment. The first is purchasing a full convention pass at a $10.00 discount. The normal cost for the convention pass is $55.00, however if you enter the access code indicating you are playing in the 40k GT you will only have to pay $45.00. This will allow complete access to the convention from July 4th through July 8th. The second method of payment is purchasing a weekend pass which will also feature a $10.00 discount. The normal weekend pass costs $45.00, but if you enter the code indicating you are playing in the 40k GT then you will only have to pay $35.00. The weekend pass will give access to the whole convention from Friday at 8pm, July 6th through the remainder of the weekend.

If you plan on attending the GT, then be sure to input this code when buying your ticket: 40KGT151

As far as prize support goes there will be prizes for ren man (best overall) general (the single undefeated player) paint (best appearance) and sports. There will also be prizes for 2nd and 3rd in each category. We're looking to have $1000+ in prize support for the tournament in addition to trophies and plaques.

The convention is in Morristown New Jersey at the Morristown Hyatt and Confrence center in New Jersey.
