2017 Garagecon

Post  Mhael on Wed Apr 05, 2017 11:26 am

<<UPDATED>>

Garagecon will be held June 9th to 11th. 218 Coppermine cres. Friday open at 7pm. Saturday 9am to 3am. Sunday 9am to 5pm...ish. normal game pts 5000

Friday night sched
Lord of the Night tourny
3 games 2500pts
$20 entry fee
Each game 1 1/2 hour time limit starts at 730
Special scenarios

Game 1                                                                              Frontline battle with hold the ground secondary
The Mad Mage- the center objective is held by a mad mage whose name has been lost over the ages to his own insanity. Long corrupted this mage wandered the worlds searching for an artifact of great power...and has now found it. The Mad Mage has retreated to his tower to study this artifact that will certainly bring great ruin to the world. You cannot allow this madness to fall in the wrong hands.

The Mad Mage
M 4  WS 3  BS 3  S 4  T 4  W 3  I 3  A 2  LD 10

The mage casts Lightning Defences each magic phase at all units within 10" on a 3+ the spell is autocasted at a power level of 8 and can be dispelled by either the active or reactive player. This spell does 2d6 hits at d3+1 strength. The mad mage's tower grants him a 2+ ward. The Mad Mage is worth 3 victory points.

Game 2

Refused Flank with breakthrough secondary
A Call to Monsters- starting turn 3 before the movement phase the active player rolls for ambushers and deploys a unit from their opponents table edge. Possible monsters will be generated by the moderator ( meaning me and based on what i have available at the time so possiblely kineater, giant, troll or similar nefarious beasts drawn to blood). Max of four monsters per table
Monsters will move random 3d6 counting as a charge if they make contact with a unit. The smell of blood goads their primal instincts, when a monster gets within 8" of a unit it loses its random movement instead honing in on its closest victim. If destroyed the player that kills it will recieve 1 victory point. If 2 monsters hit each other roll off to see which is the baddest monster (in this case neither player would gain victory point for the killed monster)

Game 3

Encircle with secure the targets secondary.
Hired swords- at the start of the game each player will secretly bid victory points on an additional unit (provided by me) to use in their game. You will have to decide how many victory points you are willing to cede to gain this unit. Here are the Mercenary choices....

312pts 3 Ogre merc vets with great weapons and only 1 ability you get to choose

295pts 4 ogre bombardiers

308pts 12 Dwarf Rangers throwing weapons, shields

294pts 14 Dwarf Marksmen handguns

300pts 2 skirmishing attack coptors

300 pts 10 orc boar riders shields

300pts 14 goblin wolf raiders shield, light lance

300pts 14 goblin spider raiders shield light lance


This is meant to be a light hearted tourny to kickoff the weekend. Prizes will be awarded.

Saturday/Sunday will be free gaming come and go with an area set up for painting/modeling.
I will provide bbq hamburgers/hot dogs for saturday and snacks during the day.
All points must be marked on the big white board to award overall weekend Garagecon prizes.

If you're having eight players, I might suggest 2 pools of 4. Round robin would be 3 games to cut down to the top 2 from each pool. Then crossover 1A vs 2B and 1B vs 2A for the semi-final. The final 2 play for the championship while the rest of the guys either play consolation games or get their cheerleader outfits on.

The point system works well. It's exactly what we use for our beer darts tournament.

8 spots might fill up fast, no room for more? Garagecons are becoming popular, so realistically, how many 4X6 can you fit in your garage?

5 is easy and 6 max but will be tight if the weather doesnt comply. The reason for running a tourny this year instead of casual games is friday i play late and saturday seems to wrap up by supper with everyone having played out. Trying to get back to the WEEKEND of Warhammering

5 tables you mean?

That's the point I was trying to make about 5 games, instead of 6. 3 Saturday, 2 Sunday kinda thing. These are just words.

Again, just to be clear - you only have 5 tables, or only have room for 5 tables? Could we squeeze 6? I have a few tables I could bring.
