What is an Escalation League?

Our Escalation League is a 16 week event designed for players of all skill levels to come together and play some casual games of Warhammer 40,000 . Games throughout the league will be played at ascending points values (size of armies) to familiarize themselves with their forces while developing an army large enough for local events. The goal of the league is to serve as an introduction to new players, train existing players and most importantly, Have Fun!

Frequently Asked Questions:

Do I need to keep the same list throughout an entire points bracket?

  • No. Players are encouraged to change up their list between games and experiment with their different units. Keep in mind that your Primary Force must remain the same throughout the league. Refer to the League Rules Doc for further explanation.

I haven't had time to paint my new models yet, can I still use them?

  • Yes. While bringing painted models is encouraged and can help with the emersion of the play experience, we understand that painting can be a long process and the league's primary goal is to play games and have fun.

Can I bring my own terrain?

  • Yes. As long as both players agree to the table setup before the match, feel free to show off your own terrain.
