Josh’s new branding for 40k tournaments, Gladiator Gaming, has launched enabling a scheduled system of independent events to be run with consistent support with terrain and sponsors. Together with Erik, they launch the first of the events; Gladiator Gaming Team Tournament!

On this episode, we talk about the format of 4 man team events, how they operate and the different opinions we all have on team events compared to solo events. We then move on to talk about the spread of factions appearing at the team event, and give our opinions on why it’s different to solo events. Along with this, the event will be streamed in a new format, one more professional, with the help of Art of War. Geeze, 2021 never looked so good for events Down Under!
