Ganesha Games, in association with Wee Gamers, presents:

The Cú Chulainn Cup

The 3rd Northern Irish Song of Blades and Heroes Competition

When? Sunday 31st July 2016, 10.00 for a 10.30am kickoff.

Where? Whitehead Primary School, 3 Islandmagee Road, Whitehead, Co. Antrim BT38 9NE.

The competition, consisting of five rounds, will be run over a single day.

Each round will be completed in 45 minutes plus the current turn. Victory points will still be awarded for uncompleted games, but neither player will be awarded the win.

Players will be ranked during and at the end of the competition by their number of wins. In the event of tied results, the cumulative number of victory points will be used to decide ranking.

Players will be matched in each round according to a modified Swiss system. After the first round, players will be paired according to ranking – i.e. the two highest ranked players will meet, as will the two lowest ranked players etc. Special consideration will be taken to ensure no two players meet more than once in the day.

Tables will be provided to each pair with predetermined terrain and victory conditions. If possible, no player will fight on the same table twice.

Players must use the same painted 25-28mm scale warbands in each round – a player's warband roster should be submitted to the organisers at least one week before the competition (24th July) and may not be changed thereafter. Email warband rosters to

Warbands may be no larger than 300 points and must be legal – i.e. no more than 33.3% of the points value of the warband may be spent on models with special rules which define them as ‘personalities'.
Profiles for warband members may be taken the rosters within the Song of Blades and Heroes core rule book or any or its official supplements, or may be customised using the online warband builder software found on the Ganesha Games website.
Special rules from any of the following Ganesha Games rules are permitted: Song of Blades and Heroes, Song of Wind and Water, Song of Gold and Darkness, Song of Deeds and Glory, Song of Arthur and Merlin, Song of Splintered Lands.
Note that only the following forms of the Lethal special rule will be permitted: Lethal against Animals, Lethal against Artificial, Lethal against Magic Users (all varieties), Lethal against Undead or Lethal against a specified race (other than humans).
Characters with the Assassin special rule may only be used if their combat factor is 3 or less.
Entry will cost £5.00 GBP.

Various prizes will be provided by Ganesha Games and will be awarded to the Cú Chulainn Cup Champion, the most sporting player and the ‘best' warband.

The last two years have seen some fantastic fun on the tabletops of Whitehead with a diverse warbands as woodland creatures, pirates, zombie pirates, Lilliputians, as well as your more conventional ratmen, orcs and adventurers. We are always really well supported by Wee Gamers with low entry costs, and by Ganesha Games for the Prizes. I'd urge anyone who is able to get across to Co. Antrim to come and join in the craic.
