The Indy Open and I are supporting this Grand Tournament event from The Custodes Imperialis gaming group located in Lafayette, IN just a short drive from Indianapolis.
The name of the event is Tippcon and this is the third year of the event but the 1st year they are running a grand tournament event. There are a ton of prizes and events to choose from....
You can check out the Tippcon site here. They have everything from the 40K GT event to Dystopian Wars, Uncharted Seas, Warmachine, X-wing, Warhammer Fantasy, open gaming, and more!
I attended last year and had a blast. They have upgraded to a bigger and better location to hold a ton of different gaming events and run a full fledged 64 man 40K grand tournament.
The prize support is huge from what I am told with over $1000 in prizes. A sneak peek into some of the prizes is below:
Renaissance Man: $100
Best General: $200
Second In Command: Battle Force of Choice
Best Appearance: Massive Paint, brush, conversion, basing kit
Best Sportsman: Dark Vengeance Set
Multiple Best Showings for factions Lots of prizes
Players Choice Award
