Well people, this is it! Our first ever Tournament for “Beyond the Gates of Antares”. I will release a proper rules pack nearer the time with scenario rules, but for now here is what you need to know.
This will be a 1,000 point event over 3 games using the standard Faction Army lists (So no Vector formations etc…) Tournament Points will be awarded for the following:
Major Win – 4 points
Minor Win – 3 points
Draw – 2 points
Minor Loss – 1 point
An additional Tournament point will also be awarded for a prompt submission of your Army list and another for fully painted forces, so take the opportunity to get painting your dudes and thinking about what you’ll be taking. I will publish the email address for army list submissions nearer the time.
Prize support is being provided by the lovely chaps at Warlord Games (Thanks Karl!) There will be prizes for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place, together with Most Sporting and the Best painted army as voted for by the players. Rumours of a humiliating Booby prize for last place are completely unfounded and should be ignored.
The event is being held at the Southampton Sluggaz club. The address is: St Denys Community Centre, Priory Road, St Denys, Southampton, Hampshire, SO17 2JZ. There is free parking on site.
The Tournament entry fee is £10.00 (Members of the Southampton Sluggaz club get the usual discounted rate down to £7.50) which will need to be paid in advance by Paypal to secure your place. The paypal email is firstname.lastname@example.org and you need to mark it as a friend/family transaction otherwise we get charged. You also need to note your name and that it is for the Antares Tournament.
The time table is as follows:
9:30 – 10:00 Arrival and Registration
10:00 – 12:30 Game 1 (1k Points)
12:30- 1:15 Lunch
1:20 – 3:50 Game 2 (1k Points)
4:00 – 6:30 Game 3 (1k Points)
6:30 – 7:00 Awards presentation and heckling
7:00 onwards Vast quantities of beer and food in Southampton (I’m not paying for that – bring your wallets!)
You are welcome and encouraged to bring your own food and drink, thought there is a strict no alcohol on site policy. There is an awesome pub just across from the hall which is where I will personally be invading for lunch and a beer. We do sell a small selection of Drinks and chocolate snacks on site but its limited.
Hopefully I have everything covered, though if you have any questions please let me know. See you all in January!
