Battleground: Fantasy Warfare & Battleground: Historical Warfare events at Council of Five Nations

Council of Five Nations XXXVII

October 10-12, 2014

Special Event Track

Battleground: Fantasy & Historical Warfare

Weekend Tournament


Battleground: F/HW is an excellent miniatures game, disguised as a card game.  There are no figures to buy or paint; you can fit a whole army in your pocket.  This is NOT a “collectible card game”, where you buy many packs to get a bunch of rare cards to pump up your hand. These events have grown in popularity each year at Council, and we’re developing a reputation for one of the biggest and best Battleground cons. We’ve even got guys driving in from all over the Northeast to play at Council weekend.  Please stop by the Battleground table any time during the weekend to play a demo game.  Or, try one of these more formal events.



Battleground Battle Royale * Battleground: Fantasy Warfare
C-Minis-5 * $ 2
Game Master: Marcus Giegerich * 12 Players * E10
This will be a multi-player per side event where the game will be at least double the size of a typical Battleground game for maximum carnage! Players of all skill & experience levels welcome.

PLEASE NOTE: If you have a $5 ticket for the Battleground weekend campaign, Conquest of the Badlands, then you do not need a separate ticket for this event. Beginners encouraged.

Conquest of the Badlands (Weekend Campaign) * Battleground: Fantasy Warfare
D-Minis-6 * $ 5
Game Master: Marcus Giegerich & Kevin Block-Schwenk * 24 Players * E10
Council hosts one of the largest gatherings of BFW players in the country each year. We will continue that tradition in 2014 with a continuation of last year’s campaign that will span all of Saturday and Sunday (slots D,E,F,G,H): "Conquest of the Badlands". All players will represent either the Order Hegemony or the Chaos Convergence. You will play in smaller individual skirmishes and fight in the huge multi-player Giant Rumble in the Saturday 7pm session.

Players of all skill level are welcome. Bring your own army deck or use one provided by the GMs.

The first game is free to all players. If you want to play in multiple sessions of the campaign, a single $5 ticket will cover all your games (including the Friday 7pm Giant Rumble). You can play as many or as few sessions of the campaign as you’d like.

Prizes and sponsorship provided by Your Move Games.

Beginners encouraged.
