It is always wonderful to hear tales of enthusiastic communities around the globe putting together events (from demo days to campaigns to full-blown tournaments), and it is exciting to see folks who have been championing Wrath of Kings take that all one step further.
We’ve been talking with Gareth Anderson on and off for a while now, and we are very pleased to be able to announce a great focal event that he is running in May 2017 – The Throne Wars (Wrath of Kings UK Nationals)!
Here’s a link to the event listing on Facebook:
But here are the details listed again (for convenience and for those folks who don’t use Facebook):
It is a great honour to finally announce the UK nationals event ‘The Throne Wars – Claim your Crown!‘. this event is a culmination to a lot of work behind the scenes between myself and Coolminiornot to organise and I hope to make this the biggest gathering we can and a great event.
The tournament will be held on Sunday, 28th of May at Element Game’s brilliant North West Gaming Centre in Stockport. This spacious venue has all the boards and terrain we need as well as parking, on-site bar and the Element games store itself. There is also a hotel opposite for people wishing to stay the weekend and there are many places to eat nearby.
Registration will be open from 9:30am with the 1st round starting at 10:30 prompt. We will be playing at skirmish level armies using the official ‘Conquest of Kings’ tournament system (http://wrathofkings.com/
Entry will be £10 which will include the hiring of the venue, prizes and a complimentary ‘goodie-bag’ That will contain some very special items. Prizes will be awarded for placement as well as bonus prizes for best painted, sportsmanship, best in-faction and the much sought-after wooden spoon! The prizes themselves will include promo-items, product and maybe aspecial surprise or two. I’m not looking to make any sort of profit for this so all the money after the venue will go the prize pool with it only growing with more people who attend.
Whether you are new to the game or a seasoned pro a fun day of games awaits and this can only lead to bigger things, so I hope we can get a strong turn out and make this a yearly extravaganza.
To book your place you can email me [email protected] or PM me. I am also hosting a Dark-age event on the Saturday. This is another coolmini game based on a dystopian sci-fi planet!
Thats it for now. Any questions please PM and I hope to see as many of you there as possible! Stay tuned for more updates!
