Seventh edition is upon us, and as with all of the previous edition changes, Astronomi-con will once again evolve.


We will be reviewing the new edition and updating our tournament format and scenarios to take advantage of all of the new options and rules.  For those that have attended our events over the years, these sorts of transitions have not had a huge impact on our players, and we expect the feel of the event to be much the same.

In the coming days, we will be reviewing the ruleset, and determining what changes to the format will be required.  As we decide on specific tournament changes, we will announce them here and on our mailing list and social media to reach as many of you as possible.

We welcome insights and opinions from our alumni regarding the new edition and encourage our alumni to share their ideas on our mailing list or social media and discuss the new edition.

Transitioning the event to a new edition is something we’ve done already three times in the past, so players should not be concerned about how a new edition might impact the tournament.

We’ll have more to share with you all very soon!

  1. I think with the toning down of D-weapons, I wouldn’t be concerned if super-heavies ended up being allowed at Astro. (Previously, D-weapons were just too insane)

    Unbound doesn’t seem very fluffy.

  3. Bruce says:

    I’m not sure where you guys are explicitly planning to go with the psychic phase, but perhaps a limit on the number of warp charges that can be produced (like magic dice in Fantasy)? Also, for demonology (malefic), perhaps simply switch the primaris out for something that isn’t a summoning spell would solve a lot of problems because that way people can’t simply default and get a a spell that can summon entire units, at least then they’d have to roll in hopes of getting it. I don’t think banning it is a solution, but making it harder to get and to cast certainly could drop the appeal. Or limit who can take it.
