Some of you will listen to various Warhammer podcasts and may be aware of an event run in the UK last year called, Warhammer Achievements. This was put on by Steve Wren and the Dragonslayers Club at Maelstrom's venue in Mansfield. Steve is running it again this year, building on the success of last year.
Warhammer Achievements is a different kind of event, one where the hobby aspects are the prime determinant of success. There is a checklist of almost 100 achievements to be attained and the winner is the person who "achieves" the most. These achievements are split between gaming, painting and sports.
I have been in touch with Steve and have received his permission to run "Warhammer Achievements" here in New Zealand. On that basis I am pleased to announce a new one day event to be held on June 23 at Khandallah in Wellington.
You can download the Players Pack here
The event is themed around those loveable rogues (and everybody's favourite race) the Skaven. There will be three themed battles over the course of the day where you will get points for certain achievements. The winner of the event is not necessarily the winner on the table rather the person who "achieves" the most.
This will be a very different kind of event - I can guarantee you that it will be the year's most fun - and may require a different mindset from the norm. It gives an opportunity to bring out those models that never see the light of day - Dwarfs with Hand Weapon and Shield, High Elf Silver Helms, Skaven Rat Ogres, Daemonic Screamers, Ogre Mournfang - and have some fun.
Details are as follows:
Cashmere Avenue School Hall, Khandallah, Wellington
If you only play one Fantasy event this year, make sure it is "Warhammer Achievements".
A big thanks to Steve for letting me use his concept, Players Pack and scenarios.
