Tournament Name:        No Bloody Network 2018: A Canberra Deadzone Tornament

Game System:  Deadzone

Event Blurb:       From the creators of Kings of War, Mantic Games’ Deadzone is a SciFi skirmish game in which players alternate activating individual models to grab loot, hold objectives and eliminate the enemy strike team.

Like Kings of War, Deadzone is a very streamlined game, only taking about 45 minutes to an hour so you play more games!  It is very fast paced, frantic action and is always good fun.

Unlike Kings of War, which isn’t very n00b friendly, Deadzone is easy to learn for both the rules and tactics but difficult to master.

Tournament Name:        The Return From Elbe!

Game System:  Napoleon at War

Event Blurb:       Wintercon 2018 will feature Napoleon at War (18-20mm) and Blucher (6mm)

Napoleon has returned, and the final coalition is forming.

The two day even will contain 4 rounds of individual battle and one multi player scenario. The initial rounds represent the pre-positioning in Belgium (and less aggressively), in the Rhine region and even Italy. This allows players to select a force from any nation and participate, and the outcomes of the earlier battles will have an impact on the final battle(s) .

This event will allow players to learn an test two rule sets, and us to assess the demand and consider our options for CANCON 2019. The multi-player events will either be one per system, or multiple if there are sufficient players

Blucher – any 1815 (or latest available version if no 1815 list available) – 200 point list – divided into 4 columns as per Scharnhorst – be aware that the longer you take positioning a battle, the less time you will have to achieve victory!

Napoleon at War – any 1815 (or latest available version if no 1815 list available) – 1500 point list – no Cavalry Divisions – playing against a Cavalry Division is no fun – in the multi player games an option for the players is to mass their Cavalry if they wish.
