Warhammer 40K Tournament in Reading Berkshire - Reading Ruckus

My local gaming club has had to stop hosting Warhammer 40K events this year due to dwindling attendance so please help bring 40K back to Reading by supporting this event.

Please spread the word and I hope to see you all there :)

Spiky Club Presents...Reading Ruckus!

Important updates are below, most importantly we had to change the date of the event bringing it forward one week to the 28th and the 29th of June.
I hope you can all still make it! We also reduced the ticket price to £30.

I have added List Submission, Simplified Army Composition including the allowance of Imperial Knights.
The details below are considered fixed and will be used for this event.
Please read through the event details and leave a post here with names if you are up for this.
