Hey everyone, just over two weeks to go!

We've equalled the largest ANUCON to date (28 people) with registrations so far - you can still register up to and including on the day though (although it's easier for me if you email beforehand), so there's time for newcomers.

Please be aware that early payments close this Sunday 30 September, so if you haven't paid yet and would like to receive the $5 discount (and pay $35 instead of $40), drop by ANU Wargaming on Sunday and say hi.

Also: Trophies!

Hope to see lots of you at the tournament!

ANUCON2012 is now the biggest ANUCON ever, with 30 registered attendees! There's still room for more though, so let me know if you're interested in attending!

Reshy> sad.gif Hope you get better soon!

AEON> thanks smile.gif

Loriness> I made them smile.gif They're painted MDF. They're pretty big - those bases are 10cm x 10cm squares.

In other news, I have finalised sponsorship for ANUCON, so this year's prizes have been kindly provided by Good Games Canberra. I'll be updating the player's pack shortly.

I've gone for a slightly broader prize pool for this year (so there's a few extra prizes compared to the list in the current player's pack):

1st, 2nd, 3rd Overall
Best Sport, Good Sport (1st and 2nd Sports)
Best General
Best Painted Army
Best Themed Army
Max Wallace Award (Wooden Spoon)

That's 9 prizes!

The trophies are for 1st Overall, Best Sport, and Best General.

To remind everyone again - early payments close today, so if you'd like the $5 discount drop by ANU Wargaming tonight. Otherwise, I'll take registrations up to and including on the day (although, earlier is better - particularly for the included BBQ - and army lists are still subject to approval and are due October 5th), so if you're still keen on attending please let me know!

See everyone at the tournament!

Luke

Hey everyone,

Minor update to the player's pack, updating the prize details and making explicit that the new CSM codex won't be allowed (sorry to all you CSM players sad.gif ).

Player's pack still is at: http://lnh.id.au/files/ANUCON2012PlayersPack.pdf

Early payments have now closed, but you can still register by email and pay on the day!

Please also remember that army lists are due this Friday October 5th.

Cheers, and see you all at the tournament!

Luke

For those of you who see this (I'll be sending an email out to everyone who's registered later tonight as well, but for now since I'm posting here anyway):

REMINDER: Army lists are due on this Friday October 5th. Army lists are subject to approval, but as long as you're not taking a completely OP list you should be fine. Forgeworld is permitted subject to approval. If you're in any doubt as to whether your list is acceptable or not, earlier is better. I will try to get back to people ASAP as they submit lists.

Please make sure your army list includes: Warlord, including which type of Warlord Trait; Psychic Disciplines (if any), Power Weapon Types (if any), and a 1000pt sublist for the paired game in round 3.

Sorry for anyone who's submitted lists over the past few days that I still haven't replied to - I just keep having other things heaped onto my todo list, and the unread emails just keep piling up. I'll be sorting through my emails tonight, and I'll get back to everyone who's submitted in the past few days.

Zidi> no worries, payment on the day is fine smile.gif

Darth Eddie> I see that list of painting awards, and I'm glad that I have two "best army" (one for painting, one for theme) awards this year biggrin.gif Send me an email if you end up deciding to attend please!

MarineLizard> See you at the tournament!

31 registrations so far - so it's the biggest ANUCON ever! That means a record amount of food and drink to buy for the weekend as well biggrin.gif

- Luke

Just looking through 6th missions (i'm going to be an absolute noob on the rules)

Is it possible to have the vanguard deployment bits marked on the edges of the tables before the tournament? Might speed things ip, i've tried it before and it was annoying and took a bit longer then needed.

Bring a piece of string; I have one in my gaming satchel most useful as both 40k & Fantasy have the same deployment styles

Hrm, good ideas Zidi and Aeon - I'll add string to the shopping list to make things easier.

32 people! Wow!

Remember, lists are due TOMORROW (Friday October 5th). I'll be checking and marking lists over the weekend, so please get them in tomorrow at the latest.

You can still register though - email me (see the player's pack for details: http://lnh.id.au/files/ANUCON2012PlayersPack.pdf ) and let me know you're attending! If you don't do so before next Friday (when I'm doing the shopping run), I might not have enough food and drinks for everyone, and you might miss out on lunch!

Three more sleeps to go!

I'm buying food and drink for the tournament on Friday, so if you're planning on attending and haven't emailed me (as per the player's pack: http://lnh.id.au/files/ANUCON2012PlayersPack.pdf ) yet please do so, otherwise I can't guarantee there will be enough food/drink for you!

We are setting up terrain on this Friday night starting at 7pm (October 12th) at the venue - if you'd like to lend a hand, have some terrain to loan us (more is always better!), or just want to get a sneak preview at the tables, feel free to drop by.

Otherwise, I'll see everyone at 8:30 on Saturday morning at the tournament!

Luke
