We’ve released the Scoring rubric for the upcoming Open War! event at JimCon 7 on Saturday, November 18th.

As primarily a narrative event, we wanted to ensure that all aspects of the hobby were well represented – and thanks to player feedback from previous events we’ve posted scoring guidlines for our attendees to ensure all participating are able to score their opponents accurately.

We’re looking forward to a great day of 40k and hope you can join in on the fun!

We’re excited to formally announce our upcoming event Astronomi-con: Open War!

This will be a one-day three-game narrative style event, taking place Saturday November 18th as part of Winnipeg’s JimCon 7 tabletop gaming convention.

Registration is only $10.00 plus your JimCon membership fee.  We encourage those planning on attending to go for the JimCon Weekend pass (Fri-Sun) and to experience even more of what JimCon has to offer!

Space for this event is extremely limited, so we encourage you to register as soon as possible to secure your spot at what we hope will be a fun-filled day of narrative-style 40k gaming!

Thanks to everyone that participated and supported this year’s event!  It was a great weekend of enjoying our great hobby.

Special thanks go to Nick Itsou for all of his assistance in coordinating the setup and tear-down of the venue.

Additional thanks go to all that sponsored terrain tables.  Sharing your personal terrain collection in support of the event is most appreciated.  This year’s event had the most Best Terrain entries in the history of Astronomi-con.  We expect that this trend will continue and look forward to seeing what you all come up with in the future!

A big thank you also to Dominic Manchisi for housing our terrain depot collection.

Phoenix Games was once again a great supporter of this year’s event, offering up terrain and table toppers.  We thank Bill for his ongoing generous support of our event, and hope you get a chance to visit his store in Kitchener and mention the event.

As we conclude this event we look forward to a new edition this summer, with an eye on updating Astronomi-con and looking to bring you new and exciting narrative battles in the 41st Millennium!

 

Full results for Toronto can be found on the Results page.

Astronomi-con FAQ Update

Tags: , , ,

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.
