War Kings GT 2019

Welcome to the War Kings GT 2019.  This is the largest and longest running Kings of War Grand Tournament in Ohio.

This year we are again holding it at the Wingate Hotel in Fairborn over March 9th & 10th, 2019.
This year we are moving to the huge gaming space at Epic Loot's Springfield store on May 25th and 26th, 2019.

Cost is $50.  Please paypal your payment (please include your name, army and gaming club) to ohiowarkings@gmail.com (please use the friends and family option).  The entry fees go towards prizes, terrain, mats, supplies and other expenses the come with large events.  In addition, every participant will receive $15 in store credit on the day of the event as well.

Cutoff date for refunds is May 19th, 2019 - after that date we will not be able to refund anyone that has to cancel (sorry, but we have to make commitments based on numbers).

Players who submit their lists by May 19th (midnight EDT)  (send to ohiowarkings@gmail.com ) will receive 10 bonus sportsmanship points.  Late list submitted after then but before the event will receive 5 bonus points, and lists not submitted until the day of the event receive no bonus points.

There will be five games (3 on Saturday, 2 on Sunday) - all games will be 2250 points.  We will be using the CoK 2019 rules.

Since we are at a game store, unfortunately we do not have any deals with hotels.

More details and information on our sponsors as soon as we have them.

War King

  • A custom Living Legend hero will lead each player's forces as the War King. This unique character may be used in every game played in addition to the regular force chosen by the player and does not need to be unlocked. 
  • Your War King should be named. 
  • Rules for creating your War King are as follows:
    • Choose a normal hero (not a current Living Legend) allowed by your main force. You MAY NOT choose a hero of type Hero(Mon) - sorry, no upgraded dragons!
    • A unique artifact may be created by choosing up to three legal artifacts. The rules for those three artifacts are combined into a single artifact which is given a new name for the Living Legend. The total cost of the artifacts chosen are added to the cost of the hero. This does not restrict the use of those individual artifacts by other units in the main army force. 
    • Any upgrades normally allowed by the basic hero chosen may also be chosen by this Living Legend. 
    • The Living Legend is given a single stat line improvement of 1 point to any stat of their choosing. The maximum Defense may NOT be increased above 5+ (however if the hero already has a 6+ defense then they keep it). The maximum Range or Melee stat is 2+. If Nerve is chosen, both the Waiver and Route values are raised by 1. This adjustment does not increase the point value calculating the value of this character. 
    • This hero DOES NOT need to be unlocked via a regiment/horde/legion.  Everyone MUST take one, regardless of any other heroes they take in the army.
    • The maximum total point value allowed for this Living Legend is 250 points.

Tournament Pack is now available here.

Appearance Scoring: We will be using the same scoring as we have for our other events.  You can download a copy here

Membershp

Just a place to put information and updates for the Ohio War Kings gaming club.

The Ohio War Kings is a wargaming club based out of Dayton Ohio.  Currently we meet on Friday evenings at 6:00 pm either at Epic Loot in Centerville (9130 Dayton-Lebanon Pike 
Centerville, OH 45458).  We have a Facebook group as well.

We have formalized our membership.  Membership is available at the following levels:
  • Membership in the Facebook group is free for getting information or ordering merchandise.
  • Minion Level is $25 for the first year, and $10 renewal each year after that.  Minion level gets you listed on the roster as a member of the club for Origins, which entitles you to a discount for a 4 day badge.  The $10 renewal can be waved each year if you work an event (such as Origins, the War Kings GT, or Gem City Massacre).
  • The War Kings Council (formerly the Horde Level) is $50, and gets you the same benefits as the Minion level, but also allows you to join in the secret chats to make decisions (and bear responsibility) for what we do as a club.  A head minion will be chosen from this group to be listed on the Origins Club Membership as a secondary contact.
  • Finally, there the the Chief Buck Stopper - which is currently assumed for life.  If current Chief Buck Stopper (because the buck stops with him) ever abdicates, then either the club will fold or some other method will be used to determine another one.
Dues go toward things like terrain, game mats, event prize support and other expenses for running events at Origins and tournaments (currently War Kings GT and Gem City Massacre).  In addition, we welcome donations of terrain or prize support for our events (so if you have that regiment box sitting on a shelf you never plan to use we can give ti to someone as a prize).

With the changes in membership levels, all paid members from 2018 are grandfathered in as members for 2019.  The new levels and renewals will start AFTER Origins 2019.  In addition, anyone who paid for membership in 2019 will automatically be renewed for 2020.

Membership year is from Origins to Origins.  The list of club members is due to Origins by May 1st, so membership must be paid up by April 29th 2019 for a discount to Origins 2019. 

You can pay your dues either in person or via PayPal .

We now also have Ohio War Kings dice.  These are $1.00 each, or 6 for $5.00.  (or you can lose one of my tournaments to get a set of 12 :-) ).


The Ohio War Kings messenger bags ($20.00 each) are currently available, and we do have both polo and button down shirts as well for $25.00 each.

War Kings GT

Welcome to the War Kings GT 2018.  This is the first annual Kings of War Grand Tournament in the Dayton, Ohio area.

This year we are holding it at the Wingate Hotel in Fairborn over April 21st & 22nd 2018.

Cost is $60 before March 1st 2018, $65 after.  You can paypal your payment (please include your name, army and gaming club) to ohiowarkings@gmail.com (please use the friends and family option).  You can use the handy button below, but it will add $2.17 to cover the pay pal fees.  (In order to properly cover the fees, you can only do one registration at a time via the button).

Cutoff date for refunds is April 1st, 2018 - after that date we will not be able to refund anyone that has to cancel (sorry, but we have to make commitments based on numbers).

Players who submit their lists by April 15th (send to ohiowarkings@gmail.com ) will receive 10 bonus sportsmanship points.  Late list submitted after April 15th but before the event will receive 5 bonus points, and lists not submitted until the day of the even receive none.

We have a group rate at the hotel of $119 / night - just use the group name "War Kings" (unfortunately there is a Winter Guard International competition in town the same weekend, so hotels are a little mor expensive than normal).  And yes, the hotel does have free breakfast!
