Adler Hobby’s Summer 2018 Scourge Campaign League
The goal of this short summer league it to allow players to gradually build up forces for a GoA Tournament to be held Saturday Sept 1st. It runs from July to September 2018. The escalation format means new players and existing players starting a new force can start off small and gradually expand their force, using the painted forces as soon as they can – no waiting for a full-sized army! By the end of the tournament, large armies can be fielded and everyone should be able to field the new, fun toys (flying tanks YES(!), like the Boromite Hauler, the Concord & Freeborn Heavy Combat Drones and Algoryn Heavy Combat Skimmers).
All against the backdrop of the new faction, The Virai Dronescourge from the equally new supplement, The Dronescourge Returns.
Final Date/Time: Saturday September 1st, 2018, starting at 10am sharp (get there beforehand to set up)
Where: Adler Hobby’s Board Game Cafe, 138 Wayne St, Manchester, NH, 03102-3739, USA.
Format: Three months prior to the event are escalating 750, 1000 and 1250 point games. The final day’s tournament is a two-round tournament at 1300 points using random mission cards.
