With the weekend here, it brings Newcastle’s annual Epic Armageddon tournament Castle Assault! The army lists were released earlier in the week with a lot of banter being generated on Facebook and personal blog sites as to the lists and players to watch out for. You can read some of the pre-game chat and discussion on Facebook here, the D6 Addiction blog here and on the WG.AU forums here. If your in or around Newcastle this weekend, I recommend you drop in to the Legions club, the tournament runs over two days and is one of the better social outings for gaming, if your interested in the opportunity to see how the game plays, you should really check it out.
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.

I am excited to announce that Sydney Titans 15 will be held on 11 October 2015 at South Coogee Bowling Club. Titans will be a one day, three round, 3000 point event. Lists will be accepted from all Epic Armageddon Approved, Developmental and Experimental lists. EpicUK lists will also be accepted on a case by case basis.
Cost will be approximately $25.
This will be an excellent opportunity to get the Sydney Epic Armageddon crowd together and meet some of the other big names in the eastern Epic scene.
There are also whispers and rumours of a large swarm descending from Newcastle Legions to flex their might and get their dice arms in for CANCON 16.
If you are new to Epic or haven’t played much, I encourage you to throw your pith helmet into the ring. Castle Assault 15 had plenty of first timers and first time Epic Tourney goers.
Sign up and check it out. There are plenty of people willing to teach newcomers in the community. I can even organise a few practice games for those who are interested.
So if you’re thinking:
I would like to but… do it!
I don’t have an army… we have heaps to spare!
I don’t know the rules… neither do I! Makes it easier to accidentally perform illegal actions
Players pack will be out shortly on epicau.com
