SO>>>> We are going back!!! With the expert guidance from Bryan Tew, The West Coast Quake will now be run by committee. Right now the members are: Bryan Tew, Russ Castronovo, Jason Azevdo, Dan Roberts and myself. anyone else wishing to help please feel free to contact me and toss me your wonderful ideas and what you can help with.

New Changes to the 2017 West Coast Quake

.... the weather is always PERFECT BLOOD BOWL WEATHER

... Casualties are from Block Dice (did you roll block dice)

.... Tie Breaker Points are awarded for Passing attempts (record 1 attempt for Quick/Short/Eating Player <yes TTM counts>, record 2 attempts for Long Pass, record 3 attempts for Long Bomb/HMP)  do not count fumbles, interceptions, or bombardier. The Doom Diver Award for most passing will be awarded.

..... PAINTING!!! we are allowing the upcoming GW Blood Bowl new release models to be unpainted because they just released and we want to see them also. YOU MUST STILL HAVE NUMBERS ON THE FRONT AND BACK OF THE BASES!!! all other models must be painted as usual.

......Special Play Cards: we will continue to use the "old" cards not the few new ones in the soon to be released box

on the rumored re/new release of Blood Bowl: We are using LRB6/Icepelt rules at this time.

I would like to announce a new award that we have going forth .....

The Mark Garcia Award for Best Painting.

Mark Garcia has won Best Painting 5 out of 7 times here at The West Coast Quake so as an ACE we decided to name the Best Painted award after him. congrats Mark!

There will not be a resin piece to add to your Grandstand this year due to me getting divorced and not taking the time to work on one...

If you need to get stadium pieces we can make arrangements. 

Money orders will be accepted for registration & great swag from past tournaments. All questions about goodies orders and special requests should be directed to As you know the cost of the event is far less than the actual cost of the goodies being given out. If you wish to buy the goodies without entering the event you may, the real cost is reflected below. The $25 fee is for Attending Players only. If you register and find that life interferes and you cannot attend we will bill you for the difference (which includes shipping)and send your Goodies packet to you

cool team builder:

At this year's West Coast Quake we will have some of our classic items for sale:

WCQ Special Play Card Decks $27 (top poker quality cards)

WCQ 2012 VERY limited ZElvis figure $10 (metal figure no player card)

WCQ 2011 Limited Beastmen Cheerleader $10 (metal sideline figure)

WCQ Patches and Range Rulers $1 ea

WCQ Dice extra dice sets $2/set (includes green Nuffle's fault)

My personal collection of NAF Blocking Dice (prices are variable based on year)


PLEASE NOTE: The registration price of $25 including the goodie pack is only available to tournament entrants who will be attending the West Coast Quake and playing the games. The goodies themselves cost far more than $25 to produce, but providing them at less than our cost to coaches in attendance is our way of saying, "Thanks for coming!" We regret to inform coaches who wish to get hold of some or all of the goodies without actually attending the Quake that they will need to wait until after Quake is done; once we've been able to tally our final costs as well as get a final count as to how many of each goodie item we have left, the goodies will be made available for sale at prices we shall try to keep affordable while still being in line with actual production costs. We appreciate your understanding.
