The Battle At Cyrax Prime, UCON and Adepticon Oh MY!

Well the fall is upon us. The summer is drawing to a close. You know what that means? Its time for weekend tournaments and war game conventions! Summer is kind of a drag and outright killer of regular game nights. Yeah you still have people showing up and playing, but it seems like, at least in Michigan, once the fall hits more people end up showing up for regular nights and events.

With that in mind, and the Fact Spellduckwrong and I are now both Spartan Vanguards, we are kicking the season off with some events. In fact we have two big events that we are very excited about.

PG_Hick of our team will be running a Warmachine Weekend qualifier at the Michigan GT which is October 11th and 12th in Lansing’s south side at the best western. You can get information at the Michigan GT website. For those of you not into War Machine or 40k, I will be hosting a Firestorm Armada tournament on October 11th.

The tournament will be at Evolution games on Saturday October 11th. It is a 900 point 3 round tournament. You are allowed 2 lists. You must choose one base fleet and both lists must use that fleet as its base. For example, if you choose to run Dindrenzi both lists must use Dindrezi to satisfy the minimum tier requirements. Battle Stations will not be allowed. Registration will start at 10 A.M. and dice will roll a little after 11 A.M. The entry fee will be $10.00 and all entry will go towards prizes in the form of store credit. Evolution games is fully stocked with Firestorm products.

The big announcements are the two conventions we will be running tournaments and game demos at. Once again we will be returning to UCON at the Marriott on Eaglecrest in Ann Arbor. We will be bringing you the 2nd annual Storm Zone Brawl: The Battle At Omicron Theta. Saturday November 15th we will be throwing down with a 900 point 4 round tournament. I am encouraging all players to bring painted fleets as it will be a requirement for our other big convention event. You can pre register for the Storm Zone Brawl when registration for the convention goes live. You can get hotel and registration information at the Ucon Website. We will be posting more information as we get it and missions in the coming weeks. We have some cool prizes being cooked up for you and we once again Prize support will be provided by Spartan Games and Evolution Games of Lansing and The Waygate.

Finally we have a big surprise for you. We will be bringing you The “Schaumberg Prime Offensive” Firestorm Armada Tournament at Adpeticon! Thats right, we are at the big show in 2015. Game demos and the Tournament will be taking place at Adepticon this year in its new venue the Schaumberg Renaissance convention center. We are just in the beginning stages, but stay tuned for updates and posts about our road to Adepticon. The format will be finalized after UCON. I am very excited about this event. Dreadbeard, Spellduckwrong and myself are working hard to bring you the player the best experience we can. Hotel information and Registration information is at the Adepticon Website. I believe Registration opens in October. Stay tuned to the Adepticon site for the registration dates and times. We expect the Tournament to fill up quickly.

Well thats all for now. I wanted to start the fall off with some exciting news. As a note I am hoping the rumors of Planetfall being released in October are true. If that is the case Demonstrations will be run at both conventions at the minimum. Stay tuned.

Until next time crush the Alliance and as always....
