The Hutt Miniature Wargames Club (http://huttclub.co.nz) is hosting its first Malifaux Tournament on the 23rd of June. You can find out all the information about it on this page here (http://huttclub.co.nz/home/conventions/malifauxjune2012/). In a nutshell it's a one day, three round (25, 30 & 35 SS) tournament with a 55 SS fixed pool.
Tournament kicks off at 9.30am, our club meets at St. Brendan's School Hall, 59 Palmer Crescent, Heretaunga. No fee, just turn up and enter on the day - though emailing the TO (firstname.lastname@example.org) would be appreciated beforehand. We're not going to be strict about non-painted miniatures, after all we are trying to get as many new players into it as possible.
No entry fee, no prizes bar the everlasting fame, glory and admiration of your peers.
We'd love to see you there!

The tournament was held yesterday and was a great success! A dozen players attended to decide who would take the title of Wellington's most ruthless Malifaux denizen. We had a few players quite new to the game and from all accounts they had a lot of fun and were scattered through the final results. High points: Perdita one-shotting Sonia while on the cusp of Avatarhood; SnowStorm reaping a bloody harvest through the tournament (did he even die once?); Seamus drawing four ones in a row (yep, his deck had been shuffled); Nino, the only Ortega left on the board, making a suicide dash to deliver the message to the ice queen; and the titanic top-of-the-table clash on the last round featuring the struggle between the Avatar of Dread and the Executioner - Seamus survived only by flipping a Severe on the last damage reduction flip. Phew!
Interestingly we had no Neverborn or Outcasts - and three Mad Hatters! (Two of whom came first and second.) Guild was a very popular choice, and we saw nearly every flavour of Arcanist make an appearance - only the mighty Marcus stayed at home. Also it was good to see a few avatars come out to play, by the end of tournament we saw Invention, Conflagration and Dread represented.
Thanks to everyone to coming to make it a great day, thanks to those that brought terrain to have something to fight over, and thanks to Pukeko Games (http://pukekogames.co.nz) for sponsoring the tournament.
