Hero for a Day tickets now available!

Greetings all,

I am pleased to announce that tickets for the Hero for a Day 24-hour charity wargaming marathon on the 20th August 2016 are now available!

After the pre-sale to those already having registered their interest, there are 15 tickets still available, priced at £10 each. If you want to reserve a ticket, email me at theburningeyeblog@gmail.com with your name and the army you'd like to bring and I will provide you with details of how to arrange payment.

The ticket price covers the cost of breakfast and dinner, as well as snacks throughout the day and entry into the prize raffle (prizes include a event exclusive hoodie, a classic GW miniature painted in event colours by me, a prize being painted by Evil Space Elves of The Dark City forum, and a forgeworld knight (I believe it's the Castigator) donated by Rob Hill of 30kplus40kequalsinfinity.blogspot.co.uk).

So what is it?

Hero for a Day is a 24-hour tabletop wargaming marathon set in the warhammer 40k universe. It will see 20 players coming together and battling in teams across 8 missions for control of the planet Hormung Prime. The missions will incorporate single-player matches, doubles games, handicap matches and kill team skirmishes representing the varied conflicts that rage across the planet's surface. The outcome of each mission will affect the objectives of the next game, with the final match of the day sealing the fate of the planet.

The main aim of the day is to raise money for CCLG - The Childrens Cancer and Leukaemia Group. Tickets have been kept to a minimum price to ensure that as much sponsorship as possible can be raised for the charity by the players. There will be a raffle on the day with tickets available prior to that via paypal for those who are unable to attend in person (postage payable dependent on the prize for those who win).


If you want/need any more details please email me at the address provided above - there is also a forum for the event that can be found at http://heroforaday.proboards.com/ where you can register to see who else is coming and chat to other participants prior to the day to talk tactics and help each other with building lists etc.
