We are proud to announce that in 2019 we're running Epic Armageddon again as part of Castle Assault.
This year the Epic event will be running along side both an Batman Miniature game event and a Warhammer 40K event. Already initial interest for this event has pegged it as possibly the largest Epic tournament in Australia to date. We again have some great support from our sponsors which I will talk more about at the event Castle Assault has an established reputation of being a fun, friendly weekend, with easy going, yet competitive games, with the option of having a couple of drinks during play. Once games are finished on the Saturday afternoon, we encourage everyone to get together for a few beers afterwards and hang out socially to help start new, or strengthen existing friendships. Chances of some Karaoke are quite high as well!
The event itself is held at the Gallipoli Legions Club in Hamilton, which fits in many gamers and tables comfortably and is fully licensed, with air conditioning. The Club is well positioned right next to Hamilton Train station and on Beaumont street with an abundance of pubs, grub and accommodation options.

This year we will also be running the Gauntlets of Ultramar Challenge - anyone participating with a Adeptus Astartes Army list (Read: Space Marines), will automatically be entered into an additional prize pool.

This was an awesome weekend last year and it will be an awesome
weekend again this year. I hope to see you there...please follow below links for further info and to register

Mick, our last update was July 25th. How many have sugned up now? 1 week to go and opponents army lists will be out.

Still that never seems to help me. Praying. to the dice gods, and making the correct sacrafices (destroyed bad rolling dice) once worked, but my luck ran dry first day of CanCon this year. maybe I'll come last again. Maybe not, I am taking orks though.

I hope we get more than a dozen people.

Mick, considering how most people though my list a bit broken, I have rethought of a weaker feral orks list that most people will think is not broken. No MW, no War engines, no TK, no WeirdBoyz AA. It MIGHT be accepted by most as a fairer list, but there are always those who complain.

Oh, Yes I do think the Orkeosaurus is to cheap for it stats, especially with a Wyrd boy added to it.

2995 point list is:
(460)Large Warband 5 Nobz, Warlord, 12 Boyz, 4 Grotz, 3 Squg Catapults - 460 points [BTS]
(200) Warband 2 Nobz, 6 Boyz, 2 Grotz - 200 points
(500) 4 formations of Wild Boyz Mobs with 2 Nobz, 6 Boyz - 125 points each
(600) 6 formations of Boarboyz mobs with 5 boarboyz in each 150 points each
(370) 2 Trappas mobz with Nobz, 6 wildboyz (scouts) - 185 points each
(190) 1 Madboyz mob with 12 madboyz (fearless but crap stats) - 190 points
(675) 3 Junka Trukk Brigades with 1 Nobz, 6 Boyz, 7 Trukks - 225 points each

17 really weak, easily broken and just as easily destroyed formations, that will need 5's or 6's in order to rally. 1 larger BTS formation that will be picked on where ever possible. When it is broken/destroyed, my warlord re-roll is lost as well. WIth no range except for the squig catapults 45cm, I have range 30 all over with no TK or MW, except for the warlords EA+1 MW attack.

Is this a fairer list?

I had thought about a list for standard Imperial guard, with 1 company command platoon, and nothing but basic infantry platoons with no upgrades. The list owuld have 45cm range, no artillery, no decent AT, a small amount of inspiring throughout, and a smattering of EA+1 CC weapons, although, all the formations are easily broken, and failrly hard to rally.

Either list would be fairer. It would be fun to test these nerfed lists out and see if they are as bad as I think they are.

Fairer doesn't mean you need to go all out to build a crap list, just more balanced.
I don't know why you'd take the IG list anywhere but a home game, and the Ork list looks pretty pants too. It's about making sure *both* players get to participate in the game, and it looks like all you'd be doing with those is taking stuff off and wondering why you were there.

Maybe try aiming for somewhere between the ork list above, and the one you brought to CA..
