star destroyerThe Little Shop of Magic is pleased to announce that we will be hosting both Star Wars Armada and Star Wars X-Wing Regional Championships in February 2017. This will be the first time the Little Shop of Magic has ever hosted an Armada regional and the first time we have hosted an X-Wing regional since 2013. This will also be the first X-Wing regional for the Las Vegas area since 2013.

So what's so important about a regional championship? Well, first of all, they are chance to play in a large event with people from outside Las Vegas without

having to travel yourself. Hang out with a bunch of people who share an interest in X-Wing or Armada as well as in Star Wars in general. There are also cool prizes available (yet to be announced by Fantasy Flight Games) such as limited edition dice, promo cards, and trophies. But what might be most signifcant to most people is the opportunity to win a first-round bye at a national championship event. This gives the player a major advantage when playing at the next level event and puts them that much closer to becoming a world champion.

Our fourth annual International TableTop Day is now officially behind us and, once again, a great time was had by all! Hundreds of players joined our Wizards and IELLO's very own Dr. Vargo in our shop, while hundreds more caught the action of our 13 hour celebration of tabletop games with the debut of our very own Twitch channel.

We would like to thank our friends from Atlas Games, IELLO, Petroglyph GamesRenegade Games, Steve Jackson Games, Geek and Sundry and the countless hordes of TableTop fans who helped make this year's event a memorable one. Thanks to the combined efforts of our store and our generous sponsors, we were able to give away over $4,000 in free games and Dragon's Dough cards in our raffle and 'Big Whale' bag give-aways.

Title warhammer 40k

This spring, Little Shop of Magic will be hosting a series of special events to highlight the variety of vehicles of war in the Warhammer 40,000 universe. Tank shock will give players a mix of event types so players of all types can find something they want to do.

Tank Shock will consist of a series of weekly hobby and organized play events, leading up to two main events - Parade Day & Mechanised Strike. Leading up to Parade Day, players will declare a number of unassembled Warhammer 40,000 miniatures as their ongoing project. Each player must have at least one vehicle (or large creature for those playing the Tyranids) included in their project. All other aspects of the player’s project are at their discretion, though our wizards recommend one squad of infantry in addition to their vehicle. On Parade Day, players will put their projects on display, where our wizards, customers, and friends will select a project they feel is the best looking force.

During out Mechanised Strike event, players will display their dominance on the field of battle. The winners of their events not only gets bragging rights, but will receive an embossed certificate declaring their victory, as well as a set of vehicle tokens for Warhammer 40,000.

Leading up to Parade Day, we will host two Engines of War project work days, where players are encouraged to come in and work on their projects alongside other participants. Players should feel free to swap parts and seek advice from their fellow participants.

Each player who purchases the models for their project from us will receive an exclusive deal for this event - a Dragon’s Dough card worth 20% of the cost of the miniatures bought in store for their project! The only catch is, the miniatures must be declared as part of a Tank Shock project when they are purchased, and they must be turned in for Parade Day.

The final event in the series is Mechanised Strike, where forces loyal to the Imperium will desperately battle against the renegade foundries to hold onto the forge world of Alastoris until reinforcements arrive. As the battle rages, Xenos and the vile forces of Chaos make planetfall, seizing the perceived opportunity, or forming pacts with the renegades on Alastoris.

Full details for each event can be found on our calendar of events:
