BRISCON Doubles Up

Advance to Contact, the second Epic Armageddon tournament to be held at BRISCON, was a roaring success. The tournament saw a fantastic mix of new and old players from across the country battle it out for five intense rounds. As each round was completed, players uploaded their results in real time, making for a smooth transition from round to round.

The guys at the Painting Bunker put on a great tournament, displaying some fantastic terrain and a high degree of professionalism. Each table came complete with a rules pack, dice roller, admin area and amazingly detailed terrain pieces. The tournament winner this year was Jim XII who came away with five straight wins with his Dark Eldar army.

The convention itself had doubled in size since 2016, hinting at a welcome increase in tournament gaming in Queensland. Everything from Batman, Infinity, Warhammer 9th Age and Warhammer 40,000 had tournaments at this year’s BRISCON.

For more details on the Epic Armageddon results, you can see them online at TTT.

BRISCON Army Lists

With eight players taking to the field, the inaugural BRISCON Epic Armageddon tournament will be one of the smaller events in the Australian Epic Armageddon calendar. Despite that, BRISCON will offer players a chance to meet new and old players from across the country, with players coming from Victoria and the Northern Territory to battle it out.

This year we will see the tournament has gone paperless. In the past, Epic Armageddon Tournament Organisers have had players submit hard copy tournament results at the completion of each round. The Tournament Organiser (or a suitable lackey) has then had to calculate the ladder and next round draw for each round based off these chicken scratchings.

For BRISCON, the Painting Bunker, in conjunction with the developers of the online management tool, TableTop Tournaments, have put together an Epic Armageddon module for TableTop Tournaments. The Tabletop Tournaments management tool allows organisers to register events in advance, submit and track army lists, submit game results, allow tournament organisers to vet results before publishing them, seed each round draw and check out some of the tournament’s basic statistics, in real time!

You can see the Army lists and players details for BRISCON on the TTT website here. Check it out!
