On a pristine Maiden World the Eldar scramble for webway portals as the Dark Eldar descend. Finished up my battle report with Dave today and it’s a real nail-biter. Look for part two on our Youtube channel tomorrow. This battle report is played at 1500 points, a little less than a typical tournament level. We used the BTP studio Water Temple terrain with a twist- in a forested setting to evoke the natural beauty of a Maiden World. The terrain is very open to allow for a brutal firefight to break out!

Summer Valhalla is coming. Valhalla is a six day wargaming convention paradise (August 26-31) set in the scenic mountains of Utah, hosted by Blue Table Painting. You pick up your ticket and we take care of the rest.
On top of the regular day and night mini wargaming and food, this August we are featuring the following guests and activities:
• We will have boardgame give-aways from Coolmini as well as demos of their popular games, painted up by BTP.
• Corvus Belli, the makers of Infinity, will be out with swag models, demos, and specialty scenarios.
• Nathan McDyer, a producer from Bethesda, the makers of Skyrim, will be out with give-aways and a mini-seminar on how to break into the video game industry.
• Battlefoam will represent with swag and demos of their new game Wild West Exodus.
• We will be holding a painting clinic with BTP’s own Ben and Karen as well as a guest Golden Daemon winner (TBA).
We have a special running: a two room deluxe suite kitted out for a gaming group of six friends at a special rate.
We are going to be giving away a ticket to our May Valhalla. A drop pod pass. The ticket has about a 950$ Value.
You can get one entry by writing “Entered” in the comments on our Facebook album HERE
You can also get an additional entry by sending us an email titled: “Why I want to go to Valhalla.” The details of the email would need to include why you want to go to Valhalla, and you must understand that the emails may be used for promotional purposes.
Entrants are responsible for reserving and paying for their own plane tickets to Salt Lake City. Once there we will pick them up for the event and they will be taken care of until they are returned to the airport at the end of the event.
This ends Monday, the winner will be announced either late Tuesday or Wednesday.
You don’t have to have to have an army, we can usually provide a studio army, or create a special commission for you- available for pickup at the event.
Book your air travel into the Salt Lake City airport (SLC) or Provo airport for Frontier Airlines. The local train station is Provo.
Tickets available on our webstore. You can also make special payment arrangements or ask any questions at firstname.lastname@example.org
A ticket gets you the room for the six days (five nights), as much food as you can eat, event, and some limited transportation. We make a few airport runs the start day and the end day so you don’t usually need a rental car.
Find your own lodging, but eat and play with us. All events, meals and on-site amenities are included.
This gets you a single or larger bed, probably in a two or four-bed room with one, two or three other gamers. We put you in the best place that’s open.
Captain or Master
Single or Double-occupancy, 1 Queen or King bed, luxury accommodations. This includes food and lodging for up to two people.
There will be plenty of wargaming tables all set with lavish terrain. There is also a game room with a billiards table, or similar games. Goodies to be had at any time you like. Want to come out at 3am and make a plate stacked with delectables? Go on ahead! (just be sure to have your robe on!).
Tickets do not include airfare. Some transportation is provided gratis; we’re making a few pickups at the airport and train station and may be running shuttles from the lodge to Park City.
Food is an important part of Valhalla. We serve three meals a day plus extras and snacks. You don’t have to purchase this, it’s part of the ticket.
Over the four days we offer a variety of custom terrain to play on, rotated in according to the needs of the guests. We are emphasizing friendly play. The boards will be world-class and with plenty of space to move around.
Painted armies only. You don’t need to have an army, you can use a house army if you want. We bring up a variety of armies.
We will have other games available such as Space Hulk, Necromunda, Game of Thrones (for example). All painted up of course. While initial events are geared to 40K or Fantasy, there is no reason not to play some of the others as well. We will have studio armies available for use (no charge of course) for casual play. The plan is to have all sorts of games up there. A lot.
We are interested in doing something different than a typical tournament where a small handful of people come out on top. We would prefer to do a spectacle with an element of storytelling. The various table represent key battlefields on a particular planet.
Bring your own army to the event if you’d like. (That will be the normal thing.) Also, you can have your army created by BTP in advance and ready for you to use at the tournament. We have studio armies as well, limited quantity, for common use.
