AoS Shorts: Your Essential Guide to Age of Sigmar

Mile High Massacre: Age of Sigmar tournament

Hey there everyone!  The Mile High Massacre was run and won over the weekend of 3/4 March 2018 in Castle Rock, Colorado, USA.  In this post, you’ll find the tournament lists, results and all the details of the tournament pack.

Congratulations to Chad Graham for hosting a great event, Andrew Standiferd for taking out Best Overall and Elric Edge for taking out Best Tactician.   Check out their Twitter feeds for great photos and coverage of the event.

Finally, I’ve been compiling an international Age of Sigmar tournament pack and list archive to be a resource for Age of Sigmar players and tournament organisers.  If you are running an event, I’d love for you to get in touch, either through this site or Twitter, so I can share your event, pack and lists.

Mile High Massacre: Age of Sigmar tournament pack

Mile High Massacre was a 2000 points, five round tournament using the following scenarios:

  • Three Places of Power – Original GHB
  • Battle for the Pass – GHB 2017
  • Starstrike – GHB 2017
  • Dark Omens – Malign Portents
  • Heralds of Woe – Malign Portents

As well as the great mix of scenarios, it had a really interesting pack.  You could earn a maximum of 200 battlepoints over the five games (100 scenario points, 50 kill points, and 50 mission points).

  • Scenario points were awarded on a 20/0 (Major Victory), 14/6 (Minor Victory) and 10/10 (Draw) basis;
  • Kill points were awarded on a bracket system depending on the difference in points killed; and
  • Mission points were awarded for completing a mission which you would randomly select from either the easy, moderate or difficult objective piles.

The pack also contained a great painting checklist if you are looking for inspiration for a tournament you wish to run.
