Equinox 2019 - Warhammer 40k results.

What a fantastic weekend of gaming for the IX th edition of the Equinox tournament. I have not seen a gathering of such spectacular painted armies in a while. Played in good spirit the tournament was relaxed and very enjoyable from the feedback got among the competitors and the Umpiring team.

With the W40k scene growing exponentially here in Auckland and around the country. We will definitely make sure that we have more space at our next few events. Tournaments we hold are there to develop and grow the community. If you get a chance, do come and enjoy a weekend of fun with like minded fellow Wargamers.

We had a very good variety of different codex armies, and that made for some very good competitive matches played throughout the event. It was also encouraging to see a Ork army leading into Day 2 of the competition and bar the final game that army would have been the Champion. So here is the results and congrats to the Victor and also the whole entire field for showing off our hobby to all those spectators in such a good light!

MonsterCon 2018 - W40k doubles

Doubles is just the right mix of hobby and enjoying the experience with a mate as you negotiate the Grim Dark of W40k combat. GW's 8th edition has given us a great opportunity to hold events that have seen good numbers of hobbyists throughout. Enjoying your hobby is key and doubles gets better and better. The smaller points makes sure you get close to/or completing your game at every encounter and leaving you wanting more. In designing the event, that's exactly what we were aiming for.

MonsterCon this year saw 48 competitors (24 teams) compete in the W40k competition. This fitted perfectly in our regular venue at the Hotel. With catered food and a bar it was the perfect place to host some doubles Warhammer. Big thanks goes to all those who came and competed in the right spirit. Good to also see so many new faces that are either attending tournaments more regularly or starting their hobby adventure with W40k.

Well played to all who competed and grats to the winners.

Arch Enemy 2018 - Warhammer 40K Doubles

Arch Enemy held this year was W40K doubles format. It was a great opportunity to test a few ideas and also to fine tune the System that we plan to have in place with GuardCon in September. It attracted a good crowd as 40K doubles really does encourage some friendly banter and fun times. With four players to a table, it creates some memorable moments that you and your mate can celebrate or lament together.

With a good spread of twenty teams we got some great C&C over the weekend. Some spectacular games were witnessed and great fun was had. From the experience we can say that a much easier and neater scoring system will be used in our next event which will fix almost all the issues we encountered. Also smaller Army points allowance for each team will speed up games, making sure each team still has enough points so they can field an effective force whichever faction they choose. Expect a up to date players pack at our next event 'International Tabletop Day' in April.

Congratulations to the winners and a big thank you to the competitors. Continue to support your local events and lets build on the great game we have community!
