AoS Shorts: Your Essential Guide to Age of Sigmar

CanCon 2019 – Results and Awards

Hey all, this weekend has been an amazing weekend of Age of Sigmar at CanCon 2019, the world’s (joint) biggest Age of Sigmar tournament ever. In a supreme weekend for Warhammer with CanCon, the UK Masters and Waaaaghpaca, this has easily been the best event I’ve ever attended. Almost 200 wargamers from Australia, New Zealand and the US going hammer and tongs over 6 games.

Be sure to check out all the coverage and live streaming over on the Honest Wargamer and the Heralds of War Facebook page. The Heralds guys, and Clint Mallet the TO in particular, have put on a great event in the 40 degree heat of the Australian summer. There is a hall full of happy gamers as a result of the efforts of Clint and his team.

CanCon 2019 Awards

CanCon 2019 was taken out by the man, the champ, Matt Campbell with his Gore Pilgrims list. The only man to take 6 major victories across the weekend and he smashed the secondary objectives as well. The fact that his Gore Pilgrims list with two Bloodthirsters succeeded against a Barak Zilfin Kharadron Overlords list with all the shooting in the world is a testament to Matt’s skill with the army.

Honourable mentions must go to Alex Krohn with his Kharadron Overlords, which won 5 major wins (shooting is back!), as well as the Warherds, Swifthawk Agents, Mixed Destruction, and Scourge Privateer lists which surprised all over the weekend. The Australian scene has a truly unique perspective that sees army stats as a challenge rather than gospel.
