9th Age in Edmonton

Post  Galadros on Wed Aug 17, 2016 1:09 pm

The 9th Age has gotten a foothold in Edmonton with several new folk porting over from other hobbies. A local club (Great White North Gaming) is going to attempt an event every 2 months for T9A. Did one at the end of July, and here is the second, on August 27th.

Come join us if you can.

Awesome to hear 9th is growing. I will definitely try and make some events but August is to soon for me.

How many entries is there so far?

Also, Ward Kapach, of the Onslaught Edmonton fame contacted me to gauge interest in the 9th environment. He has expressed in possibly adding a 9th event back to the Annual Onslaught - depending on what we can muster for attendance. Who would honestly consider a 9th event?

I for one, will attend if it's added.

Possibly. That 'possibly' is a whole lot more probable than if they only offered Age of Sigmar though.

Age of Sigmar is popular in Edmonton, but Ward is getting some pressure to add a 9th event.

What he says is true. I just got a message from Ward, so I said I'd get a head count as best I could and get back to him.

I'm in for Onslaught!

Definitely painted armies. No borrowing, anyone worth their salt can paint up an army in a couple months. Wink

What would the plan look like? Drive down Saturday afternoon, stay in a hotel Saturday night then drive home Sunday night after the tourney?

We should make some team tshirts so we can be as cool as everyone else.

Also, put your brush where your mouth is Don, I want to see your daemon army painted for the event!

Yes, the shirts should say "The next, NEXT evolution of gaming". Anyone who gets that receives a cookie.

The event is 3 each 9th games on Sunday, finishing at 6:15. After wrap up (we're staying because we're all winning prizes) that would put me back in Moose Jaw around 2-3 AM best case. Sad It's possible I may stay Sunday night for the casual drive back Monday after breakfast, I don't want to get dead 30 mins away from M.J. Smile

Hey, after all these years if anyone doesn't have at least one fully painted army - you're not a hobbyist in my books. Wink There's literally 2 months to finish an army - Get painting.

And as for me; Since I've already taken my TK and High Elves, I can't decide between Daemons, Tzeentch Warriors, Empire or Chaostonnians.

Anyone else going to try for a new army for the event?

You'd be welcome to stay at my place Sunday night.  I'd even give you breakfast Monday morning.

I'll be bringing bretonnians.

Me
Nathan. R.
Andre.
Carson.
Sean.
Dwayne.

Anyone else?  There are 16 spots, so I want to get a head count. Send $40 to ward.kapach@gmail.com and say it's for the 9th event to claim a spot!

 Also, and more importantly, the more entries we have the more we grow the community and turn Onslaught and other events into the Warhammer-centric events they were meant to be.  Let's make a good showing!
