By now some of you may have heard from various sources that some of us here on WargamerAU have been working on a series of community events towards fundraising for the horrific disasters in QLD. These events are collectively called FloodWar!, and will raise money for the Queensland Premier's Flood Appeal charity.

Take a look at the current Floodwar 1.4 PDF and get rockin!

Currently supported

Warmachine & Hordes (a.k.a. "FloodMachine")
Warhammer 40k (a.k.a. "FloodHammer")
Legend of the Five Rings

Pending support

Warhammer Fantasy
Blood Bowl

Much more importantly, take a look at the event list below. Over the days and weeks to come you'll see more added to this list. If you're interested in running an event, even if it's not for the systems listed above, please reply in here and/or send me a PM, and get cracking. In a similar spirit to Breast Cancer Brawl, it's all about the charity here, so even if you're not normally a TO or your area has a small population of gamers, get stuck in - every little bit counts.

Have you got a thread we can link to? If you'd like the FloodMachine rules I'm happy to share them with TOs if you like?

Following some final proof reading I'm gunna get the doc up today if I can - it won't contain rules for every system just yet, but I want to give out what we have (WM, 40k) for the many eager TOs and clubs.

I'll update the links to events this arvo as well, and hope to have a date on the Adelaide event ASAP.

I'm getting a lot of PMs about FloodWar, great to see people getting behind it. If you want to run an event just speak up, even small groups are awesome. Its all for charity, every dollar counts.

And to paraphrase my favourite mantra - Donate Like You've Got A Pair!

Thanks to Morsla we now have a shiny PDF file ready for public consumption! We're still adding games, scenarios are yet to come for 40k, and we're working on another ability or two for Warmachine/Hordes, but please take a look at FloodWar V1.2!

We're not quite ready to announce the exact prizes, but there will indeed be a national FloodMachine Raffle - every $10 donated towards token will get 1 entry, and we have some truly massive and epic prizes up for grabs! Take note this raffle is only for Warmachine, as it's specifically related to that game, and we'd be more than happy to have one for the other games if any TO's step up to run stuff and we can solicit some donations.

Remember, if theres no FloodWar event in your area, regardless of gaming system, there could be - poke your local TO's!

Drop us a line if you need help organising an event. There are lots of veteran tournament organisers on these forums, and we should be able to help you out.

First Prize

* 6 Everblight Hex Hunters (Guts n Gears)

With more yet to come!

There are also 4 Hordes and 4 Warmachine autographed posters which will be disseminated to your local tournaments and your friendly neighborhood Pressgangers are currently in negotiations with various other companies in an attempt to make this national prize pool even more exciting!

GW games. Dont worry im actually considering running something (i have wanted to do some TOing this year). I might ask Hall of heroes/Matt if they would be interested in doing a 40K one on the same day (depending on space and warmachine players) or the week later.
