Greetings to you all! Whether you worship the Emperor or throw your lot in with the foul denizens of the warp, I have the fantastic opportunity of bringing the war-ravaged universe of Warhammer 40,000 to you at JustPlay in a big way in the upcoming months!
For those of you who don't know, Justplay will now be open weekly on Wednesday nights! I was incredibly lucky to recently join the JustPlay team and we've agreed that Wednesday will be our dedicated Warhammer 40k night, offering campaigns, leagues, slow-grow groups and many more over the next year. For us gamers in the 40k space this is a really exciting time within the lore, with the return of several daunting primarchs, the advancement of the storyline and the likely destruction of anything that doesn't rock a 2+ invulnerable save.
The call him what you like (does anyone use his real name anyway) but its a Primarch!
Whilst we will be supporting 40k in new ways over the next year, this doesn't stop you from playing anything else that suits your fancy on Wednesday nights. Whether you're a card game player, looking to try out your new pokemon lineup or even just fancy battling for the old worlds versus some skaven we're happy to welcome you all to use the space as you see fit so come on down and join us.
It's been a long time since we've seen so much turmoil and change within the Warhammer 40k universe (it's been reported Tzeentch is joyous) and not since the Eye of Terror campaign over a decade ago have we seen such widespread destruction and chaos. This is an incredible time to be donning power armour, flying with your kabal or farmin' teef off da 'umiez. With such an exciting time we thought we'd celebrate the opening of our new night and are offering a lottery for all 40k gamers for the next four weeks. Each wednesday night any players who come down and play at least one game of Warhammer 40k will be entered into a raffle and at the end of the night the winner will receive a £20 voucher towards any 40k purchase.
For Justplay as a store this a very exciting time, but for the universe itself "the times, they are a-changing." We've seen the fall of Cadia, the wakening of the primarchs and the gathering storms broiling across the universe leaving death and destruction in their wake. This conflict will be coming to it's peak this summer with the Gathering Storm Campaign taking place very soon. The Rise of The Primarch is here and frankly, he's pissed. Cadia has fallen. Biel-Tan has fractured. Traitor Legions of Chaos march from the now-growing Eye of Terror and this summer the storm has come to Macragge...
What will come of all this? Well that's for you to decide. Come down, take part and remember, whether you're commanding titans for the imperium or running destabilising sabotage missions in the name of Alpharius; every little helps.
On that note I look forward to seeing you all and let's take a minute to remember that ancient Chinese curse:
May you live in interesting times...
