  • Hey there everyone, the time has come to meet in glorious battle. We will be doing a small tournament at Games People Play in Downtown Halifax, the address is 5217 Blowers Street.


    This will be a three game Round Robin, 2500 Points using the basic scenarios from the main rulebook. We will be scoring the games based off a 17-3 system with the objectives worth +/- 3.


    This is an open list event with submissions required before the 20th of July, you can send those to peter.doane123@gmail.com or post them to the group. Once submitted there will be no revisions.


    You should have a print out of your armybook and 5 copies of your list, 1 for the T/O, 1 for yourself and 1 for each opponent.
    Your army needs to be reasonably WYSIWYG, enough so that your opponent knows which units are which. (The T/O will look over the armies prior to playing.)


    Each round will be 2.5 Hrs with fifteen minutes between each game to tally up your totals and move your miniatures. The Schedule is as follows.


    11:00 AM to 12:00 PM, Setting up models and getting organised. Use this time at your discretion Round 1 begins at noon sharp.


    12:00 PM - 2:30 PM (Round #1)

    This will be an all day event if you wish you can bring snacks.


    *There will be no exceptions for going overtime we will start a turn clock 15 minutes before the rounds completion.


    There will be Four Awards,


    Best Overall, Based on Games, Paint and Sportsmanship.
    Best General, Based on Games and Sportsmanship

    We have 10 Available slots for participants, I will keep this updated. There will be an extrance fee of 10$ to help cover the cost of dice and thank the guys at Games People Play for letting us use their space.


    The entrance fee will be required the day of the tournament.


    There will be a T/O onsite with a full rulebook if you have any rule disputes please call him over for a clarification. His word is law.


    10/10 Slots Available


    If you wish to participate and require an army to play please let me know in advance so I can set something up for you.

      Let us know what army you play- between all of us, we can scrape together some extra models if you need :)

      Damn, that's crazy generous, if I was to go it'd probably be with a good buddy honestly, we're just re-starting the hobby up after a year hiatus, mostly because of ninth, though I wouldn't ask you guys to sub figs.

    • SkargitCrookfang -

      Its really not a problem. Between all of us we have every army at least twice over. Even if your friend wants to come all good.

      Otherwise if you ever want to come meet us for a game find us at bluenose beatdown on Facebook. Super friendly community
