About this event

++Please note these dates may be subject to change++

Traitor walls drown in the blood of the loyal.

With some forces engaged in dealing with the threat posed onboard the Fidelitas Ego, commanders, both loyalist and traitor, have turned their attention to the world of Xiloci II in the Ny’Drinah sub-sector.

The traitors have secured significant victories providing their forces with time enough to fortify their positions upon the worlds within the Xiloci’ny system, entrenching troops, building fortifications and raising earthworks. The traitors are prepared as the loyalists arrive to punish their former brethren.

Loyalist commanders know that after pushing forward they will require fortifications of their own to break the enemy against. Specialist legion consuls have been deployed to oversee the construction and conflict on Xiloci II, with the hope that larger forces are inbound to support the now bloodied loyalists across the Belt of Iron as a whole for their sacrifice must be avenged.

Players need a 3000pt list for the event which must include a special siege detachment consisting of a Siege Breaker Consul and at least one Fortification type. This detachment can be up to 1000pts of the total army (see players pack for more details).

The site car park is a short walk from the venue (there is no parking outside the hall itself) the cost of this in approx. £2.50 for a day, there are two machines for payment on the site, both accept contactless payment, one is situated in the car park and the other outside the coffee shop. The coffee shop is seasonal and may or may not be open during the event – they carry a small selection of snacks and drinks when open.

Players will need to park in the carpark and walk to the venue – however if you do require the facility to ‘drop off’ any items this can be arranged on the day if required. Please let us know.

As the closest shop/off license is a short drive away we would recommend that players bring with them anything they would want during the event such as refreshments and snacks.

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 choose which opponent you play against with the event map system in place.

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, Super Heavy detachments and Relics are fine - within the normal restrictions of the FOC (but bear in mind that your opponents will be grading your army list selection based on how much fun it is to play against).

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 (and is a continuation from previous Cataclysm of Iron events). 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 gaming 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 investment in the wider hobby has much more of an influence on whether you are declared champion than simply winning games.

The event will use a unique character development system devised for King Fluff events (see player pack for more details).

SIEGE MASTERS OF XILOCI II

This event is part of a much wider campaign which will ultimately pit Imperium, Traitor and Xenos forces against each other in the cauldron of war, however for this battle there must be warriors who stand on the shoulders of giants.

We will be using a scoring system which will reward the brave and the bold with points in order to hopefully be crowned as a Siege Master of Xiloci II.

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 armies, which are based, it is worth putting in extra effort to gain more points at the event.
