Rules: TRIUMPH! 15mm, 4+ rounds, 18 total players

It is 846AD, and scattered Viking raiding has become a flood of pagans; the North Sea is a highway for Viking Fury as raiders contest to see who can bring home the most loot, slaughter the most priests, defile the holiest places, or conquer the most English, Scots, Picts, Irish, Welsh, Frisians, or Franks! It's a great time to have a bushy beard, long braids, and an axe! For everyone else, of course, things are turning to crap. 8 loaner armies available for players with PEL tickets, those PEL slots are intended for newbies.

Otherwise, please pre-register online on the TRIUMPH forum where specific army lists for the campaign are listed: forum.wgcwar.com
to have us hold your space (18 players total between PEL tickets and advance signups).

Sunday extravaganza, the Pelennor Field in glorious 28mm Scale

Sunday, 9:00:00 AM, 4 hrs
Players: 8
GM: David Kuijt
Period: Fantasy
Scale: 28mm
Rules: TRIUMPH! Fast Play Rules for Ancient and Medieval Battles
The Gate of Minas Tirith was broken; in rode the Witch King of Angmar. None could stand against him; none save Gandalf the White, who alone barred his way. The Black Rider lifted high his sword and flames ran up the blade. And at that moment, far away, sounded horns, horns wildly blowing. Rohan had come at last. The battle of Pelennor Field had begun. Take an army of Mordor, huge beyond counting, or one of the West, fighting beyond hope with spears shining in the morning. New players are encouraged to attend one of our Epic Conflicts walk-up teaching sessions running 9-11 and 11-1 both Friday and Saturday to learn the rules.


Plenty of fun events and we look forward to seeing everyone there.
