Registration for this year’s Astronomi-con Toronto event is now open!

We have been debating the exact format of this year’s tournament for the past couple of weeks and have decided to go with a more traditional format which excludes Lords of War.

There are a few updates to the website which are still underway, so expect a few changes over the next little while, but we wanted to get registration open to allow everyone to get signed up and allow us to prepare for the event.

We would like to add some more sponsors to support this year’s event, by providing terrain, prizes, or both.  If you or your organization are interested in being a sponsor, please contact the organizers.

We look forward to seeing you this summer!

Starting with this summer’s Astronomi-con Toronto three codices will be making their Astronomi-con debut.

Codex: Tau Empire, Codex Eldar, and the Iyanden supplement for Codex: Eldar will all be available for players to select.

Will these codices have a big splash at Astronomi-con this year?  What kind of army lists will we see at 1500 points?

Astronomi-con promotes a balanced army approach to army selection, formally with its Composition scoring and more subtly with the widely diverse scenarios.  With a 1500 point limit, generals are challenged to get even more out of their selections.  We are looking forward to seeing what kind of impact these new codices will have on Astronomi-con as a whole as well.

What are your thoughts on these codices entering the Astronomi-con tournament setting?
