Fresh Coast Foodhammer: Gaming For Charity - November 3rd, 2012


Today I have the privilege of formally announcing the details for our 2012 charity event Foodhammer. This year we have MANY more sponsors than last year and we have a ton of prizes to give away. The basic details:         


Foodhammer is an annual Warhammer charity event benefiting the Food Bank of Eastern Michigan. 100% of the proceeds from the event are donated. Last year, Fresh Coast 40k raised $1,070 dollars in cash and $1,500 worth of non-perishable food items for the less fortunate in the Mid-Michigan area, which provided hundreds of meals to local families.                 

Date: November 3rd 
Time: 11am - 8pm Doors @ 10am 
EVENT LOCATION - Gamers Sanctuary: G4290 Miller Rd. Flint MI 48507 p:810.720.8280                                  

Foodhammer 2012 will be hosted by Fresh Coast 40k at Flint’s very own Gamers Sanctuary, the place to play in mid-Michigan.

What time does Foodhammer start? Doors open at 10am, event orientation at 1030am, and the first game is set to start promptly at 11am.                 

How many rounds will be played? Foodhammer 2012 will encourage participants to play as many 1500+ point games as possible throughout the day.       

So, then what are all the unique rules for this event? Foodhammer is all about having a good time!  You can download the official rules here.  Now with Fantasy AND 40k.                 

How many tables will there be? There will be at least 20 gaming tables set up for Foodhammer 2012, enough room to accommodate up to 40 players. We are looking at expanding to more if necessary.                 

What kind of food is available at Foodhammer 2012? Fresh Coast 40k will provide food right from the on-site BBQ grill for everyone participating in the event throughout the day, all included with the $10 price of admission.  Additionally, Gamers Sanctuary has various sodas, chips, candy, and other snacks available at the store.                 

Will I be able to pay for food/products from Gamers Sanctuary with a credit/debit card? Yes.  However, all event-related donations will be cash and/or check only.

The Fresh Coast 40k team would like to thank the following sponsors. They stepped up big to support Foodhammer 2012 and the prizes they’ve donated are awesome!  Please check out what they have to offer and consider a purchase the next time you’re in the market for gaming goodies.

  1. I'm looking forward to this! I haven't played a (real) 6th edition game yet and this will be a good learning experience. I'm diligently painting my models so as to give a good representation of GS's gamers.

  2. Will our armies have to be completely painted? I have about 95% of my IG army painted. The rest of them are completely finished

    1. The only way they have to be completely painted is if you want the Golden Daemon limited trophy points. Otherwise you can play with whatever you want.

    2. I will paint everything then!

    3. 2v2 or 2v1 team games are also encouraged and earn you bonus points if you play in one.

  3. Do we have to play the same Army/army list for each game?

    1. I'm bringing Daemons, Dark Eldar, and Space Marines and in case I get to play, I hope to get in one game with each.

    4. I will most likely only bring my Flesh Tearers, but will have multiple lists and looking to get into a multi-player throw down. I might bring my Fire Hawks as well. I would bring my Chaos but I'm too broke to get the new codex and get an army pointed up and painted.
