Update your calendar!!

Epic war gamers, grab a pen and paper and write this stuff down. The dates for this year’s Epic Armageddon tournaments all across Australia!

With CANCON 2016 over, the rest of the Epic Armageddon line up looks like this:

“the emperor’s legions” – 01 May 16 – The guys in SEQLD have scheduled a single day tournament to help increase the Epic Armageddon / epic30k player base. The new addition to our gaming calendar is focused on developing new players and introducing them to both the Net Epic Armageddon rules and the Horus Heresy Supplement. The tournament will be nestled within the BRISCON and looks set to be a fun, friendly day of heresy.

“There is Only War” – 19 Jun or 12 Jul 16 – Our western cousins are set to hold their annual tournament in WA some time either in June or July with confirmation closer to the middle of the year. Producing some of the most competitive players in the country, There is Only War is a great event for new and experienced players alike.

“Heavy Bolter” – 25 & 26 Jun 16 – Our big friendly giant, JB will be hosting this year’s Net Epic Armageddon Heavy Bolter tournament over two days. This year will see another “wet” event with alcohol being served throughout the tournament.

“AUS30k presents Epic30k” – 6 & 7 Aug 16. Our brothers over at the Eye of Horus Podcast will be running a parallel epic30k tournament to their 28mm Heresy event for the AUS30k Heresy Campaign.

“epic @ Castle Assault Sci-Fi” – 20 & 21 Aug 16 – Touted as one of the most social events, Castle Assault Sci-Fi features both Warhammer 40,000 and it’s fast growing Net Epic Armageddon player base. Hosted in Newcastle at the Gallipoli Legions Club, I can honestly say, is one of the best war gaming tournaments going around.

Stay tuned for more details and make sure you secure yourself a spot at one, some or all of these great events.

World Eaters, Angron, Epic.. ohh my!

John over at The Painting Bunker has recently posted an article about his step into Net Epic Armageddon. I encourage you to take the time to check it out and the rest of his site. John has done a fantastic job painting with weathering effects that create a gritty look and feel that conveys an army that has endured throughout the Great Crusade

The blog also offers up some great displays of John’s painting in 6mm and those other scales. You can check out the article here.

With only 5 days left, Neil Collins in the UK will successfully fund his Indiegogo campaign. Neil is set to create a fantastic range of city wall’s for war in the 41st millenium. The campaign offers resin wall components that allow players to create the towering walls protecting the massive hive cities found in Game Workshop’s Warhammer 40,000 universe. If you like what you see, the details can be found at the Indiegogo campaign were you can back his project and score some great terrain.

Though somewhat expensive, 150 GBP will net you a City Wall set consisting of ten components to create your defenses. The walls even feature sufficient space for standard strip bases to provide your troops a great vantage point to garrison from.
