Lightspeed, Episode 4 - No ship that small has a cloaking device

Saturday October 11th

Another installment of the Lightspeed competition is upon us. This competition is running both a seniors and juniors tournament. See the Players Pack for more details.

Discussion of the event is on Wargamer AU or our Facebook page.

Companion 14: Field of Glory Ancients

I am happy to announce the Group North Companion 14 tournament. This will use the Field of Glory Ancients rules with armies up to 700 points with 15mm figures. It will run from early August to Christmas 2014, with our usual self organising round robin. Note the change in army points from last year.

Costs are $10 registration per member, $15 non members, door fees apply per attendance at the club.

The format will be similar to the Berserker 13 and 14 format. Each player (if they wish) registers two armies for the competition. Right from the start you have the choice of playing either one for each game. Immediately before a game each player selects the army they will be using before seeing the other player’s army selection. A player who registers only one army list will not be able to change during the competition.

Armies can be from any of the FoG Ancients lists. Playing area will be the standard 6' x 4'. Game time is 3 hours maximum.

Loan Armies
For those players who want variety, there are loan armies and loan figures available. Please let me know if you want help with extra figures/army.

Please contact Ross Dawe if you would like to play in the tournament.

Vlad Renaissance: Field of Glory Renaissance League

Group North is holding a Field of Glory Renaissance (FoG:R) event.

The format will be round robin and run from early August 2014 to the Group North AGM in June 2015. Armies are up to 650 points, played on 8' x 4' or 6’ x 4’ tables (depends on what tables are available). Armies can be from any FoG:R book and can be changed from game to game. Figures based on 60mm element frontage, so 25/28/30mm figure size.

As there won't be any formal trophies for 1st, 2nd and 3rd, there is no tournament entry fee. Players still need to pay the standard club door fees.

There is a small trophy the winner keeps for a year, then hands on to the next year's winner: the 'Vlad'. Points for the Vlad award are as follows:

  • 3 points for breaking the enemy army,
  • 2 points for not breaking the enemy army but inflicting at least 6 attrition points of damage on the enemy,
  • 1 point for not breaking the enemy army but causing at least 3 attrition points damage (only used if the 6 attrition points award does not apply),
  • 2 points for killing an enemy great commander,
  • 1 point for killing each other enemy commander,
  • 2 points for sacking the enemy camp.

This points system is intended to reward style and carnage!

To be eligible for the trophy, a player must play at least 3 games. The player with the highest cumulative total wins the Vlad trophy for the year.

Please email Ross Dawe or talk to him at the club if you are playing in the Vlad renaissance event.

There may be a limited number of loan figures available.
