40k Slow Grow Campaign

Have you always wanted to play Warhammer 40,000, but the prospect of painting up a 2,000 point army seems daunting and unmanageable? Welcome to the 2018 NYC slow grow campaign. If you participate you'll start from nothing, and end up with a playable, legal, 2,000 point army in just six months!

Following the massive success of our first Slow Grow Campaign, this campaign will start as a casual narrative campaign, eventually shifting into Matched Play, with one tournament a month to show off progress and try out your new forces against other participants. We will do our best to create a compelling narrative that creates a story around the participating forces. Prizes will be awarded, with actual prizes based on attendance. All participants will receive some prize support, regardless of tournament performance.
