Triumph! at Historicon 2021 November 10-14

Post by David Schlanger » Tue Sep 21, 2021 1:53 pm

Here is the list of events for Historicon from the PEL. The Epic Conflicts event are meant to be teaching events, so these are great for bringing a friend who may be new to Triumph and introducing them to the game. These are walk up and play.
The head to head tournaments are listed as 12 players for tickets, but in reality if you are bringing your own army then they you can play and you do not need to pre-reg. If you need a loaner please do pre-reg. We plan to have an area for open gaming setup all weekend with Triumph armies out for people to play with our armies or their own in 15mm and 28mm so we welcome all interested Triumph players to hang out with us in the Laurel Ballroom. We have three great Grand Triumph games planned all in 28mm with 6 players, Marathon, Hydaspes, and The Battle of Five Armies. These will be GM moderated events using the Grand Triumph Rules for victory.
