Info pack now available. Note that the proper Players Pack showing tables and scenarios (on some games) will be out early September. Cheers



EDIT: Sunday 6 September. Revised General Information pdf now has extended Early Bird timings. Otherwise, everything in the original General Information pack is the same. Cheers.

List updated.

Players have the option of bringing their own terrain for Day 1's games. It's not a biggie if you don't as there will be enough terrain to cover both days. Cheers.

The prize support (minus the vouchers). I've neglected to add the customized dice: some say they're accursed (based on their performance in the last HistorX event). However so, they free to all paid up entrants to this event.

Update information: the early bird registration is now extended beyond Sep 15 to two weeks before the event proper when the cost rises to the $45, as stipulated in the Information pack. If you have the Information pack, please take note of this current change. Thanks.

The Table and Secnario Pack will be due out some time within the next two weeks. This will include all scenarios and table layouts for both days (with a couple of optional scenarios that may or may not be utilized on either days). Cheers.

Worth over AUD300 retail...nice prize

Will run the bye buster - Austrians.

Looking at what people are bringing, it's nice to see a variety of reformed and unreformed. Actually looking to using unreformed against reformed.

It's October folks. Time to start shining your bayonets and straighten your shakos. Will be playtesting a few of the scenarios up until the event. Vorenburg later today; report to follow.

I can confirm that winner for this event earns paid entry to CANCON 2016 (3 days). This will also include paid entry to the Australian Championships for FoGN (3 days). That's a $70 prize!!!

CANCON 2016 will be held from Sat 23 Jan through to Mon 26 Jan in Canberra.

Of course, should I somehow win my own event, I will graciously refuse the prize and it will pass onto the next placed winner. tongue.gif Cheers.

Latest updated General Info pack and Map Scenarios. These supersede previous editions. No further major changes to the Map Scenarios will occur between now and the date of the event.

Just a reminder that the early bird ends on the 9th October. Thereafter, it goes up. See Info pack for price.

Also, lists need to be submitted by 11 October; this is a hurry up to those committed to attending! Again, refer to the Info pack for details. Cheers.

What time are we starting?

I would like to ask to start early, if opponents will allow.

Also if other players finish their game early and mine finishes early, I we get cracking early?

10.5 hours on the first day is a long time, if I can punch through them and get home around 4pm, it'll keep the home life happier smile.gif
It will mean 5 tables set up.

As per the general info pack, start showing up around 8. First game kicks off at 8.30. If you want an earlier second time, clear it with your opponent. The second game finishes at 4pm. You don't need to hang around after your game finishes.

This might be a really dumb question, but where do I find the players pack?
