A Song of Ice & Fire: Tabletop Miniatures Game is a competitive miniatures game for two or more players. Each player controls one of the Great Houses of Westeros, commanding battlefield units, recruiting legendary Heroes, and manipulating the political stage, in the attempt to claim the greatest prize of all: The Iron Throne. All-new sculpts are based off original art created for the game by our crew under the direct supervision of George R.R. Martin and Dark Sword Miniatures, to ensure that the game delivers what fans have been envisioning for years.   With accessible and streamlined gameplay designed by Eric M. Lang and Michael Shinall.

After the death of King Robert Baratheon, the realm is in turmoil with 5 men claiming to be King and their great houses of Westeros are at war to claim the Iron Throne while the last remaining heir to the King dethroned by King Robert is building her power across the narrow sea.  Can you lead your house to victory and claim the Iron Thorne?

The Iron Throne will be the first national event sponsored by CMON following full tournament rules in Australia.  With 2 single-day events, players can fight for the honor of their houses in 4 games each day playing set missions which will be announced closer to the event.  Players will submit up to 2 different 35 point lists they can play during the event but must be of the same faction. A variety of prizes will be available including best sport and best painted.

List submissions to asoiafcancon@gmail.com by 20th January.  Only models released officially by this date in general retail will be able to be used.  No Kickstarter exclusives can be used.

Les Cent Jours: The Hundred Days

The Hundred Days marked the period between Napoleon’s return from exile on the island of Elba to Paris on 20 March 1815, and the second restoration of King Louis XVIII on 8 July 1815 (a period of 111 days). This period saw the War of the Seventh Coalition, and includes the Waterloo Campaign, the Neapolitan War as well as several other minor campaigns. The phrase les Cent Jours (the hundred days) was first used by the Prefect of Paris, Gaspard comte de Chabrol, in his speech welcoming the king back to Paris on 8 July.

The Campaign at Cancon 2020

Using the 100 Days Campaign Manual, players will play as either commanders in the Allied or French Armies. The campaign will be played over three days at Cancon and the timescale represents a period of less than two weeks. It is based upon the Scharnhorst campaign system found in Chapter 13 of the Blucher rulebook (all players are urged to read and be familiar with this system). There are several special rules that will be played which are found in the 100 Days Campaign Manual.

100 Days Campaign Manual can be downloaded from the Honour website or by clicking on https://jmp.sh/V2KH6Jo

Admin

  • Rules: Blucher Rulebook.
  • Miniature’s and Scale: 6mm (on 90mm x 60mm bases). All armies should be recognisable as troops taken in that era.
  • Terrain: To be advised (Where battles are fought in historical locations, maximum effort will be afforded to correct terrain pieces available)
  • Player Pack: To be issued
  • Armies: Players are encouraged to contact the TO and advise specific nationalities and corps they wish to play for this event. Players should note that due to the campaign nature of this event, that some formations may be intermixed with others at discretion of C-in-C’s.
  • Army Cards: Players do not need to supply own unit cards – these will be issued centrally.
  • C-in-Cs: Any player wishing to take on the role of Wellington or Napoleon should contact the TO; otherwise these appointments will be decided at Cancon prior to battle commencing.

The Theme for this year’s Chain of Command is Early War Europe. Focusing on the invasion of France and the Low Countries. This is a new period for us and will allow most of you to field new armies but in familiar terrain.

We will be using the Blitzkrieg 1940 Handbook with its Lists, Special Rules and Scenario suggestions.

If this style of games does not suit you or perhaps you are new to the rules, then perhaps the CoC Boot Camp will be for you?

Event Outline

There will be 5 games, two on Saturday, two on Sunday and 1 on Monday. Each game will be a minimum of three hours with our now traditional Big CoC on Monday for all those who are still standing.

This will be a 28mm Event. All troops will be regular (unless specifically approved). Your Platoon must come from the Blitzkrieg 1940 Handbook (unless specifically approved) Each scenario will have a set level of support and Force Morale will also be set at the beginning.

You will have a chance to play on a variety of tables, in a variety of terrain vs a number of opponents.

We will follow on from previous successful CANCON Chain of Command events. There will be no “Tournament Winner” though a number of prizes for good game play will be awarded. The event is open to ALL players of ANY experience level.

CoC Boot Camp

If you are unable to commit to 5 Event games OR you are new to Chain of Command, there will a “Boot Camp” this year. This will be a series of one-off games organised by Scott Driscoll, who is one of our most experienced gamers. There will be a number of dedicated tables made available. Terrain and Armies will be provided OR bring your own if you have a favourite.

The focus will be a series of one on one games where you can get the chance for more experience in Chain of Command. During the games Scott will take some time to run players through the basics of Chain of Command. Showing players how to get the most from their forces and how to maximise the rolls the “Dice Gods” hand down to you. It will be open to all comers of any experience level.

Organisation Details

If you want to play in the full “Blitzkrieg Begins” Event please enter for Saturday and Sunday plus Monday if you have the time. If you want to join in the “Boot Camp” just enter for the days you can come.

All players should be ready for a pre-event briefing at 9.00am on Saturday. The first game will kick off at 9.30am. On Sunday and Monday games will start at 9.00am sharp.

A Player’s Pack will be issued with all the Event guidelines and special rules. This will made be available to all players by the organiser.

Any questions on lists, terrain or the event can be addressed to the organiser Steve McGuigan : steve.mcguigan.home@gmail.com

Flames of War – WW2 Historical Wargaming

This year you will command a company level force in Europe in the later stages of the war, whether it’s the Bocage of Normandy, the Hills of Italy, or the Steppes of Russia, the fighting will be tough and deadly.

This year we will be playing with the new LATE WAR Forces.

Lists are to be up to 100 point lists.

We will be playing for the 3 days.

Saturday – 3 Games

Lists are to be submitted as PDF or Word documents to my email address – fingon1980@hotmail.com. Please state your name and book you are basing your formation/s off.

Ideally if you can, use the V4 forces list builder – https://forces.flamesofwar.com/ But it is not mandatory. Lists must be submitted before the 3rd Jan 2020.

We will be using the new More Missions, with 15 Different Missions to choose from. https://www.flamesofwar.com/Portals/0/Documents/FOWMissions.pdf

Also anyone able to provide terrain for the event will be greatly appreciated.

To register to play you must have both contacted me via email, and bought your ticket from the CANCON page. https://cgs.asn.au/cancon/register-now/

Guild Ball is a dynamic and fast-paced game of mob football.

Set against the backdrop of the Empire of the Free Cities, a cutthroat land ruled by powerful mercantile guilds.

Guild Ball is a game of high stakes and careful strategy which rewards those ready to take a risk. But be wary. There are always other new coaches, young bloods just like you, ready to take to the field and show no mercy.

The 5th Capital Cup has been a mainstay at CanCon since the Guild Ball Kickstarter campaign, and we have grown year after year.

Help us continue that growth and come and play in one of the biggest Australian GB tournaments of the year!

Whether you are a veteran of the game or fresh meat with no games played, the community is very welcoming and ready to show you the ropes!

We will play on Saturday 25th January 2020 using the Region Cup format found on the Steamforged Games website (link below).

Any releases, FAQ and errata up until this weekend will be used.

https://steamforged.com/s/GB-S4-RegionalCup-Rules-190812.pdf

 

As the event can attract more than 16 players, there is a possibility of running for 5 rounds hence the two-day schedule. If there is a 5th round, it will be on Sunday morning and optional for all players, decided at the end of Saturday.

If you expect to play Sunday, please select both days when purchasing tickets.
We will have the space depending on the tickets sold on Sunday so casual games will be available.

Schedule for the weekend:
Saturday 25th January
9am-11am: Round 1
11am-1pm: Round 2
1-1.30pm: Lunch
1.30pm-3.30pm: Round 3

This event will be an introduction to the excellent Sharp Practice 2nd Edition Rules by the Too Fat Lardies. The rules are described as:

The ultimate set of wargames rules for large scale skirmished in the black powder era, Sharp Practice is designed to allow the gamer to launch himself into the world of his literary heroes, be they Hornblower, Sharpe, Brigadier Gerard or Harry Flashman. Fun and fast play, whilst maintaining historical credibility, the rules are card driven for a tense and exciting game that is packed with period colour and larger than life characters.

This event is designed to introduce players to the game in a series of small but sharp actions for glory and above all fun.

Set nominally in the Napoleonic Peninsular Campaign, although other nations will be welcomed, each force will be set at 40 points using the official Sharpulator calculations – ( http://toofatlardies.co.uk/blog/wp-content/uploads/2016/05/Sharpulator.pdf)

Typically a basic force will consist of roughly 3 groups of 8 Musketeers with a Level III Leader and 1 Group of 6 Skirmishers with a Level II Leader. Variations are encouraged to enable diversity of play.

Lists are to be submitted as PDF or Word documents to my email address – fingon1980@hotmail.com. Please state your name and book you are basing your formation/s off.

WarGods – Persephonie Lost

Persephonie is missing. Again. Demeter rages and laments her misbehaving daughter. Winter comes early, crops fail and the Hellenes look towards a lean and hungry future.

 Priests call out to Hades to return Persephonie, and to Demeter to re-balance the natural cycle. The city-states call out for great heroes to find and return Persephonie.

 You gather your warband, seek the blessing of your city-states priests, and the wisdom of sages and the learned. You have a long journey before you. First  you must find your way to the Underworld, then you must enter, seek out Persephonie, and return her to her mother.

 If you succeed your name will be known in all the city-states – for stealing away Hades bride is a heroic feat indeed. If you fail, you will never be heard from again … except by the other tortured, screaming souls in the depth of Tartarus.

 

Overview

This is a 2 day, 6 game, WarGods of Ægyptus tournament on Saturday 25 and Sunday 26 January 2020 (Day 1 and Day 2 of CanCon 2020).

 

Awards and Prizes

Certificates will be awarded for 1st and 2nd overall, best sports and best painted. There will also be a 1st place trophy provided by Flying Goat Creations. In order to minimise cost to players, there will not be any CanCon Dragon Trophies, or formal prizes.

 

Warband Composition

The following Warband compositions restrictions will apply.

  • 1750 point Warband.
  • Harbinger/Demigod/Overlord/Ice Witch may start at up to Ka 2 (paying the appropriate point cost).
  • Warbands may be selected from any Crocodile Games publication released before 1 January 2020. This includes the WarGods of Ægyptus rulebook, Wendigo Warband Guide, Croc Tales, WarGods of Olympus rulebook (if released), WarGods of Olympus draft rulebook (any draft or trial Olympian rules cannot be used if the final Olympian rulebook has been released).
  • Models must be WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get) with the following exceptions.
    • Non Crocodile Games models are acceptable as long as they are clearly identifiable, and appropriate to the theme of the Warband and WarGods in general.
    • No models may be equipped with both heavy armour and a shield (of any type).
    • Javelins and throwing clubs do not have to be represented on models.
    • Armour may represent one class of armour up or down form what is represented on the model (paying the appropriate points cost. For example, a model in light armour can be used to represent no armour, light armour or medium armour; a model with no armour could represent no armour or light armour.
    • Shields carried by models can represent normal or large shields (paying the appropriate points cost).
    • Olympian Battle Honours do not need to represented on models as set out in the Olympian (currently trial) rules. However, any unit with Battle Honours must be clearly identifiable and different from other similar units, to both the owning player and their opponent. Tokens are an acceptable way to represent Battle Honours.
  • Starting Spells and Powers will be rolled by the Tournament Organiser. These Spells/Powers will be used for all games in the Tournament (not re-rolled before each game).
    • Powers gained during the game should be rolled at the end of the game and witnessed by your opponent or the Tournament Organiser;.
    • If you do not have an appropriate models for a rolled Power, or already have that Power, take lowest numbered Power not yet gained instead.
  • Warbands must declare whether their leader is Famous or Infamous.  Eater of the Dead, Wendigo and Titan Warbands are always Infamous.  This must be listed when you submit your list and cannot be changed during the Tournament.  Path may be important for Olympian Warbands using a War Altar.

 

All Warbands are welcome – Ægyptian (including Eater of the Dead), Olympian (including Titans) and Wendigo. While the theme is Olympian, all Warbands are able to participate.

 

List s must be submitted by Friday 10 January 2020. Lists can be submitted in 2 parts.

  • Firstly, you may submit the faction and deity of your Warband’s leader, along with any models that have random elements. You do not need to state what equipment they will have.
    • The TO will then give you all the random powers or items for those models. You may then build the rest of your list given regard to the powers/items you already have.
  • You then submit your final list at a later date. Your final list must included the models in your original submission.
  • This approach allows the players to have a little bit more control over their list building. You will be able to build your warband, already knowing what powers and spells models will have.
    • Once you have been given your random powers, it is not acceptable to then decide to take a different list that does not include those models.

Renaissance at War

De Bellis Renationis (DBR)

A very baroque welcome to players of the 2020 15mm Australian National DBR Tournament and stalwart defenders of the South Pacific Championship Shield embracing the early modern period.

The usual six games over 3 days, Saturday 25th to Monday 27th, with the traditional Renaissance Dinner on Saturday night.

Players who complete all six games (including byes) qualify for prizes.

Armies: Players choose an army from any listed in the three WRG army list books provided the army selected is dated from 1601.

Players may submit up to two lists but each must be the same date and location with the same or no ally.

To avoid any misunderstanding or, quele horreur, an embarrassing penalty please submit lists to check.army.list@gmail.com no later than Sunday January 19, 2020.

All figures must be historically depicted, suitably painted and correctly based.

Terrain: All tables are pre-set and based or themed on historical battles.

Defending armies that find they have no compulsory or home terrain on a pre-set battlefield may, at the organisers’ discretion, request one FE of compulsory or home terrain added to the table or replace an existing terrain piece.     Note that Difficult Going (DGo) will not be placed within the 300p centre “Gentlemen’s Fighting Zone” of the battlefield [see also Rules a) below].

Rules: WRG DBR v2 with internationally accepted amendments and guidelines, except:

a)     most enclosed fields (E) will be treated as Rough Going (RGo), and

b)    if time and weather rules are agreed by both players the earliest battles can start is Dawn.

Special Tournament Rules in addition to the standard rule book include:

I.             Split of Shot (Sh) into Musket (Msk) [cost as per Sh classification] and Arquebus (Arq) [where listed most classified (O) @ 5 AP except Spanish/Russian Streltsy (S) @ 7 AP and Ottoman Janissaries (F) @ 5 AP].  (detailed Amended Army Lists available on request)

II.         Distributed baggage – costed by command but loss only affects army break point. Non-allied baggage may be deployed together in any command’s deployment area and if mobile moved by C-in-C’s PIP, but allied baggage must be deployed within the Allied Command rectangle.

III.        Victory and Defeat points are 0 – 20 (10 as per the rule book + 10 based on casualties).

Details of Tournament Rules and other instructions and guidelines, including photos of the battlefield tables, will be emailed to players after registration closes and included with the Players’ Guide issued on day 1.

Please contact Phil for information or clarification on tournament rules.
