FOR THE GREATER GOOD!!
After some debate and discussion, we have decided to ALLOW the new upcoming Tau Empire Codex for our event this year (2015). Please plan accordingly.
We will be using our own ROGT FAQ with any changes made to be announced no later than November 7th, 2015 @ 11:59 PM Central US time.
The all too long awaited – Army List Construction Rules
And the Mission Primers – Please make sure to down load a copy and play the crap out of it as there are several unique changes to mission building contained within.
Make sure that if you have feed back for our mission primer please send that to firstname.lastname@example.org
Remember that 40k Registration, Warma-Hordes Registration, and X-Wing Dogfight Registrations are open and we have extended the deadline for all discounted tickets! Space is still available but is going to fill fast. So get your tickets today!
Please note that we are proud to host on Friday Evening a Demonstration game of Star Wars: Armada.
The Renegade Open Staff is pleased to announce our third year is now open for business! This year will be 12/4 – 12/6/15 at Fantasy Flights Game Center in Roseville MN. We have increased staff, changed how we will judge our event, and even added new and exciting events to the Renegade as we continue to grow and thrive.
This year we have added Privateer Press Warmachine to our tournament. 32 spots will be available in this event, so sign up now, as they will fill up quickly. Our new staff member, Jamie Huddle, will be the main Judge for this event. He has the experience, the knowledge and the skills to do it.
Our main event will still be the Renegade Open: Three games on Saturday, followed by a fourth game for the Top 16. Once they have done battle, this will set who in the Top 8 will compete for our championship. But do not despair… there will be an RTT for everyone not in the Final event. We will be limiting this event to only 64 players, so be aware! Max Schuchard will now be the Head Judge for the the Renegade, taking over from David Arimond. David will be handing administrative duties during the event.
Finally, we will also have an X-Wing tournament on Friday. Last year we doubled our first year’s attendance… can we do that again?
Greetings, everyone. First of all, thank you for a great event. We had an immense amount of fun putting on the Renegade, and we hope in the end, that you did as well. There are many moving parts for an event of this size, and mistakes will happen. We can only learn from these and make our event better for all next year.
Second, we owe everyone an apology. One Day One, there was a mistake with our scoring software, which provided us incorrect data in choosing our Top 16. Many of you attempted to help, and we greatly appreciate your efforts. However, this was our event, and ultimately, we had to be the ones to fix the issue. Here are the actual results from Day One. They include the correct Top 16 that should have played a fourth game.

In the end, we had to make a decision in order to move the day along, and we upset several players. We take full responsibility for our actions, and will take steps to ensure that a mistake like that will not occur again.
Third, we again owe an apology for not posting our results right away! Another data issue, this one involving the computer our results were on, caused it to crash. Fortunately, we had hard copies of all results, especially for Day 2, that we were able to recreate the scores. However, we could not locate all of our Paint Scores, and rather than post some paint, we chose to not include paint in our Final Results. We know that many of you were interested in how you did, but the data was unrecoverable.
Here are the Final Results from Day Two that we announced before we closed out this year. Congratulations to all who won!

Most of us enjoy a well-painted army when we go to a tournament… and some of the armies we have seen are nothing short of amazing. But are you looking to add that something extra to your army? One of our primary sponsors, PoweredPlay Gaming, has something special in store for you. They have launched a new kickstarter, and it’s bound to be awesome!
Powered play is known for their plug and play LED kits, which most players have used for their vehicles and other larger models. Now, they are focusing on the small and medium based models! Here is what they have to say, in their own words:
“What does it take to put an LED in small scale models and miniatures? Either a whole lot of engineering, headaches and burning your fingers with soldering irons; or PoweredBases – the first plug and play kit designed for miniatures. PoweredBases bring LED effects to miniatures that sit on 40mm bases or larger, giving you the freedom to create authentic lighting design for entire armies, battle groups or historical models.
Our kits make it super simple to add the effects you want. Just drill your holes, run your wires, and plug it in. No more soldering! No more electrical engineering. Just simple lighting options to make your pieces stand out without the headache. Got something that you’ve always wanted to light, but it can only fit a watch battery? We’re building upon our past successful LED launches, and filling the gap for small vehicle and model lighting kits.”
Frankly, they sound just amazing! We can’t wait to see an entire army at our tables, lit up and ready to go!
