The Golden Rhino is an annual Warhammer 40k Tournament hosted in Southeast Michigan by the Highland Township Library Club and Ian Pietila, typically occurring in July each year. But the Golden Rhino is much more than a tournament, it is an opportunity for players and hobbyists alike to enjoy three rounds of spirited Warhammer 40k battles. From crazy bonuses like yelling “Don’t park so close next time” when a model is slain from a vehicle explosion to buying a “Rigel’s worth” of tickets, there is plenty of fun to be had by all. For more information on The Golden Rhino and all of its crazy shannigans, feel free to check out this past year’s player packet below:
As Ian put it best in the intro, The Golden Rhino exists so that players could have fun, and boy did we! Check out the coverage of the fun we had below including BatReps of the top table as well as interviews with the tournament’s sponsors.
