Astronomi-con FAQ Update

Some updates to the FAQ for Astronomi-con:

  • Lifted restrictions on Independent Characters joining units during deployment.   The current GW Rulebook FAQ has addressed the most pressing issues and having additional restrictions seemed unnecessary.
  • Added information on how the Death From The Skies supplement will be used at Astronomi-con.
  • Added Captain Centos as an allowed special character.
  • Clarified how Formations composed of a single unit composed of multiple battlefield roles is to be handled.  (E.g. Deathwatch Kill Teams, Inquisitorial Henchman Warbands)

The Imperium Besieged – Update

Posted: November 14, 2016 by The Master of the Adeptus Administratum in Events, News

Due to a number of participants withdrawing from the event due to scheduling conflicts, we have been put in a tough position where the event is no longer sufficiently funded to proceed.

We are at this time working to reschedule the event for early in the new year.

We sincerely apologize for this inconvenience.

Scoring Update

Posted: October 13, 2016 by The Master of the Adeptus Administratum in Uncategorized

TheImperiumBesieged

We have updated our Scoring page for The Imperium Besieged to include a scoring reference for each of the four categories:  Gameplay, Sportsmanship, Appearance, and Theme.

This should assist players when scoring their opponents each round.  This is something that many attendees have asked for us to return to our events, so we hope this will be a welcome addition.

TheImperiumBesieged

As part of The Imperium Besieged, players will be required to bring two objective markers which will be used in all of the scenarios.

These objective markers should be on bases between 40mm and 60mm in size.  Players are encouraged to create objectives which are thematic in nature and suit the army being played.

We hope to offer an award for Best Objectives at the event, which would be voted on by the players.

TheImperiumBesiegedRegistration for our upcoming event: The Imperium Besieged will open on Tuesday, June 7th at noon Eastern time.

The registration fee will be $100.00 CAD per player.

To ensure a balance between Imperium and non-Imperium players, the Imperium Faction will initially be capped at 25 players.

Players will include their Faction information at the time of registration.   They will also have the option to provide an Alternate Faction, should they be willing to switch to another Faction at a later time due to Faction registration imbalances.

Astronomi-con Rivals

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!
