I have a very slight chance of being able to attend and if a miricle happens and I can actually play you will be the first to know. A one day event is alot easier for me to attend.

Cancon will be out next year as it is the second eldests 18th on that weekend. And if leviathan falls on the 17th April Im screwed for that one too as it is my wifes birthday.

So that leaves me with Hazpak's idea of a Novacon or mini game day which I would have a better chance of attending depending on the day. So Haz (Shane) start planning If you plan it we will come I can gather the ranks possible 4 but definately 3 to play depending on the timing

I can now confirm that barring unexpected emergencies I will be available for MOAB this year, despite my earlier post I have been able to arrange things so that I can attend that weekend.

Finally got a blurb I'm happy with...

Heb Sed : The Jubilee

Every thirty years, Pharaoh demonstrated his strength and his right to rule through the Heb Sed festival.

The festival renewed the Pharaoh and renewed the land, for the land and the Pharaoh are one.

But the pharaoh is dead and the land is divided. Many contenders vie for the throne of the Great House and the land suffers.

The priests have conclaved and decided that even without a pharaoh, the festival must be performed.

As representatives of both the gods and their children, Harbingers have been selected by their temples to compete in these trials and prove their strength.

Each will compete to try and renew the land and maybe, somehow, bring a measure of peace.

A one day Wargods of Aegyptus Tournament.

Saturday 1st October 2011.

Contact Barry by email: wargods@mail.com

Warband lists must be submitted to the organiser prior to the event either via PM on the crocodile forum http://www.crocodilegames.com/ or email : (wargods@mail.com).

Tournament details:

• Warbands can be up to, but not exceeding 1500pts (following all the restrictions as per the Rulebook).

• Your Harbinger or equivalent may be Ka 1 or Ka 2 at normal cost.

• Warbands may be designed using rules as published up to one week before the convention.

• Equipment should be close to What You See Is What You Get (Armour may be one grade higher than appears on the mini, any shield may be called Large by paying the points, all weapons should be correctly represented except Javelins & Throwing-clubs).

• Miniatures do not have to be fully painted but at least assembled, undercoated and securely based (movement trays are advised).

• Warband lists must be submitted to the organiser prior to the event. Random elements (such as Spells, Artifex items, Abomination mutations & Crypt Lord powers) will be generated by the organiser on submission of the list and be the same across the tournament.

• Heavy armour may not be taken in combination with a shield.

• Ka levels may be acquired throughout the tournament via victory in Provocation (as per the Rulebook). Acquired Ka powers will be determined randomly by the organiser. Where the player does not bring the miniature(s) for particular powers (ie Guardian Shadows, Favoured of Bast, Aspect of Horus - Defender/Avenger, Call Phantom Warriors, Create Beasts, The Stone Colossus, Aspect of Set - Hunter) they will get the lowest numbered power they do not already have.

• Earth's Farewell (or the Thoth Ka power 8 : Flight or similar) cannot be used to enter melee. It can only be used to make passing attacks. You must end of your move at least 1" away from all enemy or neutral models.

• Additional information will be posted to the Crocodile Games forums at http://www.crocodilegames.com/

• I have several Loan armies I can make available if requested including Asar, Eater of the Dead, Sebeki, ToTanem, Basti/Isis and Anubi.

• Depending on numbers, Prizes will be awarded for: o Champion of Ra : awarded to the player with the highest combination of final Ka rating, "battle" score, "sportsmanship" score & "aesthetic" score. o Champion of Horus : awarded to the player with the highest "battle" score. o Champion of Bast : this will cover overall aesthetics from the perspective of painting, conversions and theme. To be eligible for this prize, 90% of the mini's must be painted with more than 3 colours (black, white & grey primer do not count) and at least 75% of the mini's must be Crocodile Games miniatures. o A player will be eligible to win one prize only.

===============================================================================

Raiders of the Lost Ark!

A one day skirmish extravaganza including Jungle! Pyramids! Zombie Pygmies! Crocodiles! Hippos! An Underground labyrinth and an elephant named Stampy! (BYO cream buns.)

Vile, wretched Nekharu and their stygian masters have stolen an ark containing valuable and magically powerful ritual items from the great temple of Ra.

The High Priest of your god has summoned you and ordered its recovery.

After many quests, hard fighting and harder marching, the trail leading ever southwards past the cataracts and into the jungles beyond Nubia, you are within sight of your goal.

Your warband has been reduced to a shadow of its former strength but you have almost reached the resting place of the Ark.

Great will be the glory for the one who recovers the Lost Ark!

Create a legal 1500 point Wargods army with a Ka 1 or Ka 2 harbinger and from that list select 500 points of warriors, heros, beasts and monsters to accompany your harbinger in this quest.

Note : Chariots and jungle don't mix. Leave them at home.

Also note : Just to be absolutely clear here : The 500 points of your skirmish list does include the cost of your harbinger and equipment.

There will be a prize for the one who recovers the ark. It may include cake.

Outstanding work, Barry.

But when both days are being run & won, I'll be seeing the leaping salties of Arnhem Land being fed.

(It's the True Sebeki thang to do.)

(Unless my beloved changes her mind about where & when we're going on our annual vacation for the 22nd time.)

I would dearly love to come, but I'll be in Geelong that weekend.

Hopefully witnessing & then wildly celebrating yet another AFL premiership for the almighty Cats!

I'd also note I only have one (1) paid entry... If anyone does intend attending for either day, please let me know so I can tell the organisers.

I've received an email this morning from the MOAB people, unless we get some more entries by next monday, the organisers will be cancelling Wargods.

I know Darryl is pretty keen but even a two person comp is a bit of a farce.

Three is do-able with me playing the fourth.

If you are interested, please put your entries in, or at least give me a firm commitment so I can go back to the organisers.

This is Make or Break time guys.

Sorry guys, there's not enough entries by the cutoff and the organisers have pulled the plug.

No Wargods at MOAB this year. :(

We'll see what happens at Leviathan, and if people want to organise something (Novacon or a games day at Newcastle or wherever) I will come along with minis and terrain (given sufficient warning...I have a 'life' outside gaming as well)

Didn't actually see it until I looked just now. The system doesn't seem to flag when you've got one like the old forum. I've been checking emails (including the .mail one) but not that.

Oh well, such is life.
