What do I need to bring?
Your army, up to 2000 points chosen according to the Kings of War Second edition rulebook and additional Clash of Kings restrictions (see comp section below)

At least three copies of your army list is recommended

All dice, tape-measures, rule-books, damage markers, pencils and other gaming accessories you will need. Please bring dice that are clear to read for both you and your opponents. You must be willing to let your opponent use your dice if they so wish

Units must be mounted on appropriately sized multibases or movement trays – if you insist on individually moving all the models in a Zombie Legion, you’ll soon run out of time!

Having a large tray to carry your army between games is a great way of keeping the tournament moving smoothly and in a timely fashion. An army display board may earn you additional painting points

Unit footprints must conform to the appropriate size

Glue is recommended in case something breaks during the day

Non-perishable food donations

What armies can I choose from?
You may use any army list found in the Kings of War rulebook, the Uncharted Empires book or the Twilight Kin temporary army list available on the Mantic website. Fan made lists are not permitted.

The Walking Dead is coming to Phoenix

Phoenix G&H did the Walking Dead: All out war kickstarter from Mantic Games, and we’re getting in 10 copies in the middle of October, about one month before any other store…I was just wondering how many people would be interested in reserving a starter box ($70).

Jam packed with 18 highly detailed miniatures, rulebook, as well as all the items needed to play the game, it’s value is un-paralleled.

Additionally, my rep from Mantic Joe Neet mentioned to me that since Phoenix G&H is a KS supporter our starter games will of course come with the exclusive models funded during the campaign.
