UPDATE 16th April
Since we last updated you, we have made a few changes to the GM Document so please re-download it. In summary though:
DARK AGES ONLY - We have changed the factions you can use to exclude those in the Crescent & Cross. This is because of the delays in the production of the book which mean that people will not have had sufficient time to play with, or against, the new factions.
LATER START TIME ON SATURDAY - We have decided to kick off on Saturday at 10:30 to give people who are travelling to the event in the morning an extra hour in bed!
PRICE DROP!! - As a result of some clever re-jigging, we have been able to drop the entry price to £30 for two-day tickets (£15 for one day tickets) while still offering a bumper stash of prizes and providing goody bags and quality food.
EVENING SESSION - We will running some extra informal games on Saturday evening for people who want to play C&C along with JUGULA and Muskets & Tomahawk games. And the bar will be open late!
All ticket holders will recieve a FREE GOODY BAG!
Inside, you will find:
An EXCLUSIVE GM Standard Bearer figure that will not be available elsewhere. He will come with a detachable SAGA GM 2014 base so you can either display him on his stand or base him up for use in your warbands.
An EXCLUSIVE SAGA GM 2014 LBMS Banner and shield transfer for use with the GM Standard Bearer.
A set of EXCLUSIVE SAGA GM 2014 Fatigue markers (by 4Ground)
A discount voucher for SAGA purchases on the day (Full Trade Stand in attendance.)
Prices for the event have now been reduced to £30 for both days, and £15 for 1 day
EDIT - 8th May -
Gripping Beast have confirmed that the Grand Melee will definitely go ahead as planned despite the lower then expected ticket sales
Steppe Tribes will now be allowed in the Event and have now been promoted to an 'Offical' faction
EDIT - 3rd June -
