About The Event

As you have now heard the UKGT torch has been handed over to us here at 40KUK, Hurah!!! We are both honoured and overjoyed to be involved with the evolution of this prestigious tournament.

The 40KUK GT will be going ahead on the 24th and 25th March 2012

The UKGT was arguably one of the most professional and well run tournaments in this year’s calendar and we aim to keep that high standard; continuing to make this a great tournament; for the most part a lot of the same faces will be there helping us in the background, so little will change in that respect.

What will change, and what we are very excited about, is that the build up to the 40KUK GT will be much more interactive and there will be regular spots on our podcast about the tournament in the coming months. (Check out Episode 19 for more in depth information). We hope that with the 40KUK GT’s main public face, it being here and through the podcast we will provide a central site for anyone to contact us regarding the GT, with ideas, queries and all those little things you need to ask before an event. This will also be supported, as usual with regular updates on many of the communities favourite forum sites such as Warhammer Forum, Warseer etc as well as our own Face Book page which will have the most regular updates.

For all those as excited as we are, the rules pack is currently having the final finishing touches added to it and will be available to download towards the end of the month (exact date to be released soon).

We have a Facebook Events Page for all those interested, so come and Join Us On Facebook.

We believe we can make the 40KUK GT even better this year with all the hard work Neil Kerr and the guys have put in to establishing this tournament before us (and still will be if we have any say in it!!)

Don’t hesitate to contact us though should you have any questions and queries (or would just like to be involved) at UK40KGT@40KUK.com

    Hey guys

    Is it possible for one person to make a ‘block booking’ and get, say 8 tickets for their club? Or are you going to put a max on it (say 4)

    • 40KUK September 13, 2011 at 20:24 #

      Yep buddy, block booking is very possible and there will be no limit. The only thing that we will ask for on the paypal booking is the names of the people attending.

    Super duper!

    Expect a big showing from the OGC. Reliably the 4th or 5th top rated club in Oxford!

    • 40KUK September 23, 2011 at 18:08 #

      Yes sir, the more the merrier and there will be loads on the social side for everyone too on both Friday and Saturday.

        So compagnons do not have to buy a ticket ?? how about the food during the event, can they eat a long and pay a certain price or so ??

        Hi D,

        Sure – is it a webstore or a paypal address? Just dont want to miss out 🙂


      • 40KUK September 30, 2011 at 22:07 #

        It is a Paypal business account and can take paypal payments along with any Credit/ Debit Card.

    Is there a minimum age limit? Could both my 11 year old son and myself play?

    • 40KUK September 30, 2011 at 22:12 #

      Hi Mark,

      As much as we would love to include your son, this is a competitive gaming event and in the main will be a very adult environment, not really suitable for an eleven year old. We would really look for a young person to be 16 years of age.


  6. Mark Blackburn September 30, 2011 at 22:20 #

    Thanks Dave, can I suggest that you include that fact in the rules pack so people don’t buy tickets for under age participants only to find out too late.

    Good luck with the GT, and keep up the good work with the podcast it’s a cracking good listen every week.

    • 40KUK September 30, 2011 at 23:30 #

      Yep Mark, fully understood. I’m sorry we haven’t added that to the rulespack, though I will make that explicit on our webpage as tickets go up. As an addition I do think the GT would be a very good experience for your son to see in the day and have a look around. If you are not too far away I would be very happy to even show your son around myself in the day and maybe even have a side game with him if he wants.

    Tickets bought, hopefully 🙂
