Age of Sigmar Call to Arms

It is an exciting time for Warhammer: Age of Sigmar.  With a new edition update coming, a couple of amazing recent new armies, and loads of cool stuff in the wings – it’s the perfect time to jump in to an Age of Sigmar army – which is why we are very pleased to announce our first Call to Arms army-building league in over a year!

What is a Call to Arms?: Call to Arms is one of our most popular event types.  It is an army-building league where everyone begins a new army, and aims to completely paint it by a deadline.  What makes it so fun is that everyone is on the same page at the same time.  Events run during the Call to Arms compliment the stages of building an army (for example an event towards the beginning might be for a single painted hero model).  At the end players all end up with matching-sized, fully painted armies, and have a similar amount of experience with them – which is a fun thing to be a part of.

Call to Arms Begins: June 1st, 2018
Call to Arms Early-Bird: You can begin working on your army early as soon as you sign up!

Call to Arms Deadline: Labour Day, Monday, September 3rd (Party at 6pm)

Call to Arms Entry: $25.00 -or- 6 Hero’s Rewards -or- $15.00 for Knights of Blackwood members.

What You Get: For your entry fee you get the following:

  • Free Entry to all Age of Sigmar events during Call to Arms
  • A Call to Arms Collector’s Card – which has up to 10 Achievements to stamp.  You can redeem the card for $5.00 store credit for each stamp (up to $50.00 in value)
  • An invitation to the Call to Arms Finale Party, where we will have pizza, gaming, and prizes!

Call to Arms Collector’s Card: One of the main benefits of joining the Call to Arms is the Collector’s Card you get.  If you complete all nine achievements (including the double-one) you can earn double your C2A entry fee in store credit!  Here are the achievements you can earn credit for:

  1. Paint a Battleline Unit  must be a fully painted legal unit that was not painted before the C2A began
  2. Paint a Leader Unit  must be fully painted legal unit that was not painted before the C2A began
  3. Paint a centerpiece model  pick a cool focus of the army, like a big miniature, impressively based unit, or something that is a focus when looking at the completed army, must be a legal unit that was not painted before the C2A began
  4. Spend $35.00+ on Hobby Supplies  In a single transaction, stock up a little on supplies like paints, glue, flocks, and brushes
  5. Spend $50.00+ on Models for the Army  Get something for the army!
  6. Play a Game in the Store  Play an Age of Sigmar game in the store, with your C2A forces, this might occur during an official AoS event, or separately
  7. Hobby in the Store  Hang out in the store and do some painting, assembly, or other hobbying in the store
  8. Finish your 2000pt Army  The ultimate goal: finish a legal AoS army.  All models in the army must not have been painted before the C2A began
  9. Finish your Army by the Deadline If you complete #8 by the Labour Day deadline you will get a bonus 2 stamps!

Note: that the only stamp that requires you to actually finish by the deadline is the final one.  You can still complete your army after the C2A ends, and redeem the card.  You do not need to complete every box to redeem the card, it’s just better for you if you do since each box is worth $5.00.  Cards must be redeemed in 2018.

Call to Arms Finale Party: We will host a Finale Party at 6pm on Labour Day, Monday September 3rd.  All C2A participants are invited, whether you finished the Collectors Card yet or not.  At the party we will have pizza, drinks, gaming, and prizes!

There has never been a better time to jump in to Age of Sigmar, and we really hope you’ll join in to the Call to Arms!

 

Age of Sigmar Tournament

We will be hosting another Age of Sigmar ITC tournament this May!

When: Saturday, May 26th, 11:00am (Registration begins at 10am)

Entry Fee: $20.00 /or/ 6 Hero’s Rewards

Lunch: A Pizza Lunch is included in your entry, including three slices, and either two pops/waters or one energy drink/juice.

Stronghold Members Get: a Hero’s Reward

Format: 1500pts, 3 Rounds, Two Hours per Round

Forces: Every army must follow an Allegience (which can be a Grand Alliance, like Chaos, or a more specific one, like Breyherd).  Forces are selected using the Matched Play rules (General’s Handbook 2017, p.70), following the ‘Battlehost’ guidelines and utilizing the Rules of One and other ‘Matched Play’ rules.

Scenarios: We will be using ITC, General’s Handbook, & Rulebook Scenarios TBD.

Event Scoring: We will be using the Best Coast Pairings app for scoring, so if you have it (or want to download it) you can do so to make reporting and tracking even easier – but you don’t need to have it as our organizers will.  Scoring follows the ITC scoring for each scenario.

Prizes: We will put $20 per participant, minus the cost of the pizza, in to a prize pool.  The top three players will all get a share of store credit.  Additionally one unlucky player will be granted a free set of dice – to change up their luck!

Since our last events we have had Magor and the Farstriders teams released – will they be a factor!?

Call to Arms Age of Sigmar Coming Soon!

We are very excited to announce that we will be running our first Call to Arms in well over a year, and it will be for Age of Sigmar.

For those who haven’t participated in a Call to Arms, it is my favorite event type that we run.  In a Call to Arms all participants register an army they intend to complete, and a deadline is set.  Participants work away, encouraging each other, and play games along the way until the deadline arrives and everyone shows off their newly-painted armies.  We host a get-together for the Call to Arms participants, have food, play games, and check out each-other’s handy work.

The reason I love Call to Arms is that it really allows a community to gel.  Everyone, be they new players or experienced veterans, are sort of on the same level at the same time – playing a brand new army.  AND everything is painted!  It’s an almost magical time in the life of a community during and after a Call to Arms, when everyone is at the same spot in their hobbying.

So, we are obviously very excited to be running this multi-month event, and if you are interested in getting in to Age of Sigmar, or growing your collection, keep your eyes out for our full announcement – coming soon!
