Ex-Illis intro tournament Saturday 17th September

Ex-Illis LogoOn Saturday 17th September Big Orbit Games is hosting an Ex-Illis beginners tournament, you don’t need to have played the game before and we will provide the miniatures for you to use.

Ex-Illis is a table top miniatures game combined with computer software that is used to decide the outcome of combat, magic etc.

In addition to this the Ex-Illis website keeps track of your armies progress and you can accrue experience acquire equipment much like you would in a Role-play game.

Big Orbit Games will have 3 Ex-Illis tables set up during the tournament. A game of Ex-Illis takes about 20 minutes to play so there will be little waiting around between games (if you do have a gap you can always try your hand at another of the many games we have in store :)).

In order to take part in the tournament you will need to have a 30 day trial account for Ex-Illis, it will save time if you sign-up in advance (but this isn’t essential), you can sign-up here: http://www.ex-illis.com/. Sign-up is free and you will only be asked for your name and e-mail address.

If you’ve heard about Ex-Illis and wanted to see what it is all about or if you just want to try something new come on down. Come down whenever you like between 10:30am and 5pm, but you’ll get the most out of the day if you arrive before midday.

FREE mounted Knight Baneret model for all attendees.

Pics of Ronnie from Mantic Games’ visit today

Here are some pics of Ronnie’s visit today. He was demoing Dwarf Kings Hold using a 3-up version they have. We all also got to take a look at a Warpath Ork (or Orc) sprue, it looked really nice and came with some kind of heavy weapon, a funky looking power claw and other options.

No pic of the sprue I’m afraid (one will follow soon hopefully), but here are the pics of the Dwarf Kings Hold demo.

He has left the 3-up Dwarf Kings Hold with us until midday Tuesday, so if you couldn’t make it today feel free to pop in on Monday or early Tuesday. Here’s a pic of a 3-up dwarf and his little brother… The little guy is a regular Mantic dwarf
