You Can Kickstart Rising Sun Through BKG!

Yes, you read that right, you can actually Kickstart the amazing Rising Sun game by CMON, Guillotine Games, and Studio McVey through Black Knight Games!  We have officially partnered with CMON to offer our customers CMON Kickstarters right through our shop!

Why Would I Do That?

If you are interested in the Rising Sun game, you can Kickstart it now.  However, by pledging through Black Knight Games instead you get several benefits:

  1. You don’t need to pay shipping!  Normally you would need to pay a separate shipping fee when the item ships, this can often be as much as $50+ Canadian!  Pledging through us means you don’t pay that, nor do you need to remember to check your email to make the payment – or risk missing out!
  2. Support your FLGS!  One hang up for many people when using Kickstarter is that you are bypassing your Friendly Local Game Store.  By cutting out the FLGSs you aren’t doing anything to keep their doors open to you and the other members of the local gaming community.  But, through this Kickstarter you DO support your FLGS – AND – you support the game you are excited about!
  3. Get the game early, just like if you had Kickstarted it on your own!
  4. Get any of the add-ons you want, just like if you had Kickstarted it on your own!
  5. Gain the flexibility of making a pledge, changes to a pledge, or additions up to a month after the Kickstarter!  As a partner store we are able to modify our order as long as their pledge manager remains open, so pledging with us allows you all kinds of flexibility – even the ability to pledge late!
  6. Do it all for no added cost!  Our agreement with CMON requires us to sell you all pledges and add-ons at exactly the same price as the Kickstarter.  So, you will pay $100 USD (based on that days exchange rate) for any Daimyo Pledge, and the equivalent for any add-ons!

How Do I Pledge?

Simply come in to BKG, or give us a call, and we will sell you the pledge just like any customer order!

But, I Already Pledged Online – I Didn’t Know This Was An Option!

Kickstarter allows you to cancel Pledges before the cut off date, and CMON is really good about that kind of thing too.  Simply cancel and re-pledge with us!  Either way they’re getting the sale, and this way you gain all the above benefits!  If it’s after the cut off you can message them, explain you want to pledge with a participating partner retailer, and they shouldn’t have an issue with cancelling the pledge.

So get this amazing game, and help out your FLGS in the process!

Age of Sigmar: April Tournament

Join us for a Warhammer Age of Sigmar tournament using the points from the General’s Handbook!

When: Saturday, April 1, 11:00am (Registration begins at 10:30am)

Entry Fee: $20.00 ($16.00 for Stronghold Members) – Includes Pizza lunch

Rounds: 3 Rounds, 2 Hours & 20mins/Round. Scenarios: Three Places of Power (p.114), Blood & Glory (p.111), and Border War (p.113) – All scenarios from the General’s Handbook.

Bring: Your army, your rules, dice, two copies of your army list.

Armies & Guidelines:
Forces will be ‘Vanguard’ forces to 1500 points, using the ‘Pitched Battle’ rules on p. 106 in the General’s Handbook. Forces must follow the minimums for a Vanguard force (1-4 Leaders, 2+ Battleline units, 0-2 Artillery, 0-2 Behemoths).

Players may set aside any amount of points as ‘Reinforcement Points’ (p. 108 Generals Handbook). It is from their Reinforcement Points that players may summon, or otherwise add units to the game – units added in this way DO NOT need to be decided beforehand, so players can draw from any legal miniatures they have on hand – and may even use miniatures that had died earlier in the game.

Forces must be composed exclusively from models from one of the four Grand Alliances (Order, Chaos, Death, & Destruction), and may either take Alliance Abilities from their Grand Alliance, or from their Battletome.

Warscroll Detachments may be taken, however you must pay the additional points for them from the Points section in the General’s Handbook.

Prizes: We will provide prizes for the top 3 players overall, as well as bonus prizes for ‘Best Presentation’ and ‘Best Sport’ (as voted on by the participants), prizes take the form of store credit (based on attendance).
