I just want to give a little shout out to the Freebootaz Open being held at Maelstrom on Nov 27th and 28th. Keith Buck is doing a great job securing sponsors and prize support and the venue is fantastic. For those of you who haven't been before it's well worth the trip up to Mansfield, apart from the fantastic gaming facilities (tables and terrain easily on par with Warhammer World ... if not better), the shop is stocked with all things Privateer Press, Wyrd Minatures, Battlefront and more besides and the staff are friendly, non-pushy and very knowledgeable.
Back to the tournament itself, Saturday is a non-comped 1750pt 40k Singles Tournament played over 4 rounds with custom missions and Sunday is a 1500pt 40k Doubles Tournament (750pts per player) again played over 4 rounds but this time with a mix of 4th and 5th edition, objective based missions.
Anyway it looks like it's going to be a great event and if you want some more info click here.
