Dan over at Rollin 2D6 Deep has the schedule of events and some thoughts on this year's Nagoyahammer. This looks to be a great event.
Original Post by Dan Stern Here. Full article after the Jump.
Things have been really busy this year and I've only recently been able to squeeze hobbying back into my schedule, but rather than harp on that let's talk about NagoyaHammer 2014 and how much it will suck if you miss out on the awesomeness. NagoyaHammer is the big Nagoya event hosted every year during Golden Week by the ever-vigilant, stalwart shield of the Imperium of Man, Primarch (who runs the NagoyaHammer forums that you should be signed up for, by the way). Last year was absolutely fantastic. We had beautiful tables all around and a ton of really cool people with gorgeous armies. It was a great weekend and this year is sure to be awesome as well.
There is always a variety of games played at NagoyaHammer, but 40k remains the central event. This year there will be Bolt Action and tables set up for pick-up 40k on the first day. The second day is a 40k campaign-like set-up with four factions battling it out, defending and assaulting tables.
Below, I'll post the essential details and the links to the original posts. There is still a lot of time before the event, more than enough to sign up and get your army ready to go.

The 40k event, the details of which can be found here, calls for 3-5 lists. For doubles games you need a 500, a 750 and a 1k list. For singles (which might not be necessary), you need a 1500 and a 2k (and I would think a 1k too, but that isn't listed on the site). The teams have the codices and FW lists split up into the four different factions. You can find individual threads for each faction here.
If you have any questions or comments, contact me here or sign up with the NagoyaHammer forumsand talk to Primarch there. Hope to see you in Nagoya!
