We are excited to announce that Astronomi-con will return to Toronto in 2017, on April 29th and 30th!

We will once again return to the Best Western Plus Milton, the home of Astronomi-con Toronto for the past few years.

Registration for our signature event is now open! Please visit the Registration Page to sign up.

For those that had registered for The Imperium Besieged and have not yet asked for a refund, your registration fees have been transferred towards this event.
We will be contacting everyone on this list to confirm their registration status.

We look forward to putting on another great event for you all!

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.

Once again we’d like to thank everyone that attended and we look forward to coming back to Toronto later this year for a new event that we are working on.  More details on that coming soon!

Astronomi-con Toronto – Filling Fast!

It has been less than two weeks since we opened registration for Toronto, and our projected 60 player capacity is already half filled!

We encourage players that are planning on attending to register soon to avoid disappointment.  Players that are planning on providing terrain for the event should contact the organizers.  Players that bring one or more tables worth of terrain are eligible to win the Best Terrain trophy.

As we are not local to Toronto, there is a limit to how much terrain we ourselves can bring with us, so we have relied on the local community to work with us to secure enough terrain for the event.

We are also looking for additional sponsors for prize support and to help promote this and future events!  If your organization or one that you know would be interested in supporting us and what we do, please contact us! 

UPDATE: Venue information has been posted!  We’re excited to bring this year’s event to the Best Western Plus in Milton ON.

Spaces for Toronto are always highly prized so we encourage you to register as soon as you can to secure your spot at this year’s event!

For those players planning on bringing terrain to help with the event and/or wanting to enter in this year’s Best Terrain competition, please contact the Organizers so we can plan accordingly!

More details with regards to the venue and accommodations will be up later this week.

We look forward to another fantastic event in Toronto and hope to see you there!

Baneblade Spotted!

With the latest Apocalypse release, we’re excited to incorporate these new rules into one of our flagship scenarios:

Sink The Baneblade!

This Scenario has evolved over the years from the original 3rd edition scenario which made its debut at the very first Astronomi-con event in 2001, but the story is the still the same:  Two forces are moving into position to engage in battle, when a runaway Baneblade shows up to make the situation even more desperate.   Both players will need to take on the enemy as well as the Baneblade to prevail.

Here’s a blast from the past!  The original v3 scenario from 2001:  Sink The Baneblade 2001 PDF

And the new v6 scenario which will be used at Astronomi-con Toronto:  Sink The Baneblade v6.0.0.0.pdf

Things have certainly changed over the years!

Nicholas Wansbutter host of Swords and Space radio, had the organizers of Astronomi-con on his most recent show.

We spent over an hour discussing the Warhammer 40,000 game, including its background, races, and what makes this hobby so special for us and the greater community.

Toronto Update – Almost Full!

Once again we’ve had a great response from our Toronto community and we’re excited to announce that the event is nearing capacity!

YYZ2013link

We still have some room left, and the ability to overflow somewhat, so for those still waiting to register, it would be in your best interest to do so this weekend!

For those that are planning on bringing terrain to help with the event, or for those that are planning on bringing terrain for a Best Terrain entry, please contact us so that we can plan accordingly!  We would appreciate the terrain support as it means we have less terrain to ship across the country!

 

Army Lists are due two weeks prior to the event.   Please send those to:  armylist@astronomi-con.com so that we can record your Composition score.

 

IMPORTANT NOTE:  Players are seeded by Composition score for their first game, and failure to submit your army list will mean that you will be seeded for the first game as if you had scored a zero for Composition until such time that we are able to get your army scored for Composition.

 

We are once again looking at arranging for lunch on-site – more info on that soon!

We are also looking for additional sponsors for prizes as well.   If you know of gaming stores in the GTA which would be interested in supporting the event, do let us know!
