The ground trembles – Titans 2015

With just under an hour until kick off, the first Titans Epic Armageddon tournament is set to be fast paced and brutal. The tournament organiser, JimXII has opened the field to a range of developmental and experimental lists. This offers players a lot of diversity when it comes to available factions and how to compose your army.

The draw includes over 15 players from across NSW and will see Adeptus Mechanicus armies, Space Marines, Necrons, three Ork variations (including a Gargant Bigmob!), Tau, Eldar, Vraksian Renegades, two Imperial Guard variations and a Chaos Titan Cult battle it out in South Coogee.

For the finer details, check out the Wargamer.AU forums.

CANCON 2016

Its that time again. CGS have added Epic Armageddon once again to the list of tournaments to be held at CANCON over the Australia Day long weekend. We have enough slots for 30 players, and would like to get past the 26 player mark to knock over the previous largest attendance at an Epic Tournament. This tournament has been touted in the past as the Australian Nationals of Epic Armageddon. Its got a great feel with players coming from as far as WA and North Qld to get their hands on the myriad of prizes on offer. WA has had a strangle hold on the Tournament Champion for the past two years with Matt holding court over all comers.

CANCON is held at the Exhibition Park in Canberra (EPIC) over the Australia Day Long weekend and concludes on the Monday. You can register to play either, one, two or three days. One day refers to the Big Bash day only, two days refers to the tournament only and three days is the whole thing.

 

The format will be the same as 2015. Day one and two will be dedicated to the tournament. Playing six games over the two days to determine the tournament champion. Day three will be the ‘Big Bash’. For those that haven’t joined us before at CANCON, the Big Bash is a massed game between the entrants at the tournament. We generally set the list size at 4000 points. Teams are decided, overall generals for both sides are selected and players then have at it. The aim of the Big Bash event is to showcase Epic to other players at CANCON and to enjoy a massive game that many would not attempt.  As yet a theme for the day has not been decided. Watch this space as we launch a poll to help gauge interest. Some possible contenders at this stage are Horus Heresy, Engine War or Imperial vs Chaos.

 

Registration for the event is through the CGS website and is linked below. The registration function is a little unusual this year in that you have to select two options from the list. At the top you have the one, two or three day choices. Select one of these appropriate to your attendance. You then need to scroll down and find the corresponding Epic Armageddon days and select that. Eg, Two Day Entry $45.00 plus Sat & Sun CANCON 2016 Epic Armageddon Tournament $10.00.

CANCON Registration

I look forward to seeing the usual suspects at EPIC again in 2016. For those toying with the idea of coming along, its well worth it. The EA community in Australia is a great bunch. The tournament provides an opportunity for people to meet the faces behind the screens, learn a lot about variant gaming styles and make some long bonds of friendship. Keep watching this space and I will have the tournament pack loaded for all. Additional information about the tournament, rules and list constraints will be found in the pack.

Cheers
