Betrayal at Incunabula
21 July @ 9:00 am - 22 July @ 6:00 pm
As the flames of war still burn brightly through out the Taras system, the tide of war sweeps towards Incunabula. The system was once held in accordance to the tithes owed to the centre of the Mechanicum empire but now dissent has reached the worlds of Incunabula. Tasked with seeking out and eliminating traitorous forces, the loyalists engaged at Taras are redeployed under new tactical command. The traitors seek to make new pacts as their supply lines are compromised and their legion command structure is subverted. The war for the Belt of Iron has only just begun. War has come to Incunabula – a war which will unlock an even greater schism within the Mechanicum and their allies.
The weekend will consist of five games of Age of Darkness, each of which, you will have two and a half hours to play that round.
Games will be played on a 6’x4’ board and you will be matched against a random player to play against (in the unlikely event of a repeat match up please let the organiser know as quickly as possible so that we can sort out a replacement player for you where possible).
Each game will be played using the Age of Darkness Missions found in the Forge World Horus Heresy Age of Darkness rule book. Optional Force Organisation Charts are allowed as is the use of Super Heavy detachments and Relics (but bear in mind that your opponent will be grading your army list selection based on how much fun it is to play against).
Games 1 & 2 will be single games using a 3000pt army list, game 3 will be a randomly matched doubles game of 1500pts per player (it maybe possible that during this game you may face an opponent you have battled before).
Games 4 & 5 will be single games using a 3000pt list.
As part of the weekends games you will be presented with a custom character progression system – which will be in play across all five games of the weekend. This gives you the opportunity to take a non-unique/un-named model with the ‘independent character’ special rule and create evocative stories through both their successes and their failures.
This is a FUN narrative gamng weekend, where you are encouraged to leave tournament lists at home and instead focus on the game as telling a story rather than checking off another victory. The games will be objective based and have an impact on who is crowned champion – however you’re investement in the wider hobby has much more of an influence on whether you are declared champion than simply winning games.
Your ticket to this event covers entry for you to the Betrayal at Incunabula event. At the heart of the event are five games of Horus Heresy Age of Darkness. These Five games will see you play against like minded players. There are lots of fun things to aim for, from painting competitions to gaming awards and of course the heroic tales of your character as they climb the ladder of infamy.
You will be greeted with coffee and doughnuts on Saturday morning and served a tasty hot lunch on Saturday and Sunday, if you have any particular dietary requirements please contact King Fluff via email on King_Fluff@hotmail.co.uk (when purchasing your ticket).

CHAMPION OF INCUNABULA
This event is the begining of a much wider campaign which will pit Imperium, Traitor and Xenos forces against each other in the cauldron of war, however for this battle there must be a champion.
We will be using a scoring system which will reward the brave and the bold with points in order to hopefully be crowned Champion of Incunabula.
After each game, each player will grade their opponent based on a set of criteria. This figure will then be multiplied by the number of victory points scored by the player. The criteria will cover sportsmanship, army composition, quality of painting etc. So it is important to note that even though we are asking for fully painted and based armies, it is worth putting in extra effort to gain more points at the event.
