As has been discussed over the past couple of weeks on our Facebook group and Yahoo! mailing list, we are excited to announce a NEW narrative event: The Imperium Besieged.
This will be a weekend of narrative battles at a scale never seen at an Astronomi-con event in the past, and players will be representing their factions on the battlefields.
While there is still plenty of work for us to do with respect to getting all of the fine details worked out, the broader workings have been refined to a state where we can begin sharing them with you all and at a date in the near future opening up registrations to be part of this event weekend!
Armies will be Battleforged and selected in three sections: a 1400 point “Main Force”, a 700 point “Offensive Sideboard” and a 700 point “Defensive Sideboard”. Lords of War are allowed and the weekend will see each participant play 5 games. Most games will feature the Main Force and one of the Sideboard forces, while there will be one game which players will get to use all three!
A great many more details will be posted to the website soon, so stay vigilant for all of the information as it gets published. Once all of the key information has been posted, we will make an announcement regarding Registration.
This is not a Tournament per se, as players will never be directly playing opponents they are in competition with. Awards will be based on your Faction – and by design you’ll only be playing games against opponents from another Faction (based on a mix of <50% Imperium Faction players).
We are very excited about this new event, and hope that players will take this opportunity to really explore the narrative side of their armies and their place in the 40k universe.
We hope to see you there!
