WMH: Scars of Caen – Charsaug

WMH Scars of CaenStarting Thursday, January 20th Black Knight Games will be hosting a league of divided loyalties and epic proportions.  Charsaug, Season 1 of a league that will span this year, asks players to choose a loyalty within their faction, to either the purity playing in the spirit of that faction, or the opportunistic glory of winning at all costs.  The Dragon around which this league is themed has a particular affinity for fire, so you’ll notice the league models are all described as “Charred” and many of the scenarios deal either with fire or lighting things on fire.

WhenThursdays, starting March 20th and running until Thursday, April 24th.  You’re welcome to play league games during the week, but make sure you record them and report them to your Team Captain.

CostThis league is free!

Prizes:  (Pictured right) League participants to play a minimum of five reported games will receive an awesome patch that can be attached to a Warmachine Bag or carrying case by peeling off the back sticker.  Show some nice bling when you go out to play, at a convention, another store, or just with your friends!

Top ranked players on each team (more on that in a moment) will also receive either a Purist or Opportunist medallion.  These sexy medals are also themed around the league and will reward players to earn as many hobby point and game points as possible throughout the Charsaug league.  All hobby points and game points earned are totalled at the end of the league.

Teams?  That’s right!  Team Opportunist will be headed up by local Press Ganger Tim Banky (Timtheenchanter) and Team Purist will be headed up by local Press Ganger Matt Clark (Mr. Golden Deal).  Let either of them know what team you’ll be playing for.  During games, different scenarios reward different factions, and each team has different goal to earn.

Look forward to posts on the forums and on our front page here from the Captains of each team (and maybe some of their lieutenants too!)

Call to Arms: Flames of War & Bolt Action

FoW C2A

Unique to this Call to Arms event, The Flames of War game system is being joined by Bolt Action from Warlord Games. You have two game systems to choose from!  Yes, that’s right! Introducing BOLT  ACTION!  Bolt Action (BA) is not Flames of War (FOW) on a larger scale. The game mechanics are vastly different and the rules govern battlefield actions not covered in FOW like; opportunity fire, cumulative pin markers and friendly fire.  This is an opportunity to start an army for either game system or expand the one that you already have. 

Begins: Monday, March 17th, 2014

Deadline: Sun, May 4th, 2014

Entry Fee: $100.00

You Get: $110.00 worth of miniatures for either of the armies. Just by signing up you get a deal!

Victory Conditions:  It is the goal of all participants to complete a 900 point Flames of War army or a 900 point Bolt Action army. If you finish painting your army choice by the deadline and attend a minimum of two Call to Arms Events you’ll get a percentage of the Victory Pool.  There will be five weekly Call to Arms events.

Victory Pool:  Black Knight Games will put $10 per participant into a Victory Pool.  This pool will be split evenly among the participants that complete the victory conditions by the deadline.

Armies:  If you are starting a new Army it’s composition must have the compulsory units, plus attachments if desired. If you are expanding an existing army any units will do. The miniatures used for the Call to Arms must be unpainted at the start.

Call to Arms Events: Fred, the FOW Standard Bearer, will run the Call to Arms events. These events will focus on army assembly, painting, rules discussions, terrain and game play. Each participant must attend at least two Call to Arms events before the deadline to satisfy the victory conditions, including the finale.  Call to Arms events give you a great opportunity to meet, play, and paint with other gamers at BKG.  Together we will motivate each other to get these armies done! See below for details.

Knight of the Realm: In addition to all of the benefits of the Call to Arms those players who have joined the Knights of the Realm for FOW will earn points toward their season standing. Points Available (Max 20). Join the Call to Arms league: 5pts. Complete your Victory Conditions: 10pts. Attend an Event: 2pts.
