Runes and Rifles Upcoming Events - December

December
Christmas Events:
The Grinch Who Stole Christmas

Rules: WFB 500pts per person (can bring back destroyed troops as reinforcements) – Special rules for The Grinch

Objective: Defeat the Grinch and his army of goblin “Helpers”

Story: As the folk of the world awoke on Christmas day cries of dismay and disappointment echo from town to town. No presents for anyone this year and each stocking hangs empty above the fireplaces. News is spreading quickly from the north of a large band of goblin raiders headed by a tall green figure who seems to be riding on Santa’s sleigh. Peasants and soldiers alike from all races gather to ride forth and catch this green menace before Christmas is completely lost.

Santa’s Sleigh Racing
Rules: WFB chariot race using made-to-measure rule set
Objective: Earn points from damaging Santa’s and other’s chariots as well as winning the race

Call to Arms War Torn Fronts Results

After much delay I am proud to announce the results of the most recent Hordes/Warmachine League.

New player Matt Crane captured the Relentless Medal.

Jon Sirico whupped up on the greatest variety of opponents snagging him the Eliminator Medal.

Prone to running beast heavy lists anyway, Dan Paddock will be taking home the Strategist Medal.

And finally, Jorrie Laughman racked up the greatest number of league points and will be named Warlord.

Thanks to everyone who participated. Winners can pick up their medals at CSW during regular business hours.

  • Move terrain before the game starts.

Rise of December Malifaux Tournament

What: 30 Stone Scrap tournament, and a Wyrd single figure painting competition. There will be a $5 entry fee for the tournament. This helps cover prize support.
 
When: December 19th 2009.  Registration starts at 11:00. 1st round for the tournament starts at high noon. Painting will be judged after the second round.

Where: The Comic Store West

Tournament Details:
The tournament will consist of 3 rounds of 30 stone scraps. The strategies will be Holiday themed, and there is the possibility of special Holiday schemes. Players may bring 2 crews/lists for their chosen faction. When it is time to hire crews, players can choose whichever crew they'd like for that round. Each round will have a 90 minute time limit. Prizes are at this time to be announced, but willl be determined by participation level.

Painting Competition:
The painting competition will be for any single Wyrd miniature. The judging will be based on the criteria used for the Single Figure category at Gen Con. If you have entered the same model for this year's Rotten Harvest contest, it will not be eligible for this competition. Wyrd has also agreed to provide some generous prize support for this competition, and the competition entries will be photographed and sent to Wyrd. They might even end up in the next issue of the Wyrd Chronicles. There will be prizes for the top 3 models.
