#RunewarsMinis

It had the shape of a tall and powerfully built man encased in heavy, ornate steel, with branching antlers sweeping back proudly from its head. Within the shadows of its helm burned two embers of purple light, like enormous amethysts buried in its skull.

The Terrinoth of Runewars Miniatures Game is a fantastical place—full of noble lords, powerful magic, terrible evils, and ancient animosities. It is a place populated by Humans, Elves, and Dwarves—as well as Waiqar's undead legions, carrion worms, dragons, the Uthuk Y'llan, and their Ynfernael allies. Battles rage, heroes arise, and the victors claim the spoils.

Soon, heroes, mages, villains, and necromancers of all stripes will charge to battle at one of Terrinoth's greatest battlefields—Gen Con Indy. There, they'll wage the battles of the 2018 Runewars Miniatures Game North American Championships, fighting for each city, each village, each forest, and each sliver of land.

The attendees of this event will send their footmen and their heroes into the thick of battle to protect their friends and families, to seize greater power, and to simply survive. And as the battles draw toward a close, they'll command their forces with an eye toward the fantastic prizes at stake—extended art cards, custom tokens, medallions, trophies, and a chance for glory at the 2018 Runewars Miniatures Game World Championships!

Participation

You can't go to war without an army, and no army's complete without some manner of tough, heavy-hitting, engine of destruction. To get you started on the right foot, each participant in the 2018 Runewars Miniatures Game North American Championships will receive a double-sided deployment card.

On this card, you'll find both Rune Golems and Carrion Lancers brought to life with epic, full-bleed art treatments.

Day 2

Each North American Championship tournament participant making the Day 2 cut—whether or not the tournament features a second day—will receive a set of five objective tokens. Printed gold on a white acrylic base, these tokens offer a clear and compelling reminder to pursue your objectives.

Top 64

Stand fast against the onrushing hordes. Hold your ground. There's more waiting for those who make the Top 64—starting with a spot-glossed plastic version of the event's participation card.

The Rune Golems are even more resilient atop a plastic card, and the Carrion Lancers's spot-glossing will ensure they draw even more of your opponent's attention away from your most strategically valuable units!

Top 32

Inspire your troops to fight with unprecedented valor. Draw upon the strength of your Ynfernael allies. Raise your opponent's fallen foes, and add them to your army. If you can work your way into the Top 32, you'll receive a commemorative binder that will stand testament to your performance, even as it helps you sort and store all the other prizes you've received.

Proudly displaying either the North American Championship logo atop a blue background layered with the appropriate flags, this binder holds nine standard-sized cards per page and up to 360 cards total. An elastic fastener wraps over the back to keep it shut securely.

Top 16

The Top 16 participants at the Runewars Miniatures Game North American Championship will receive a medallion bearing the event's logo.

Top 8

As a miniatures game of rank-and-file battles in the world of Terrinoth, Runewars Miniatures Game encourages and rewards both carefully measured maneuvers and daring tactics. You'll be able to facilitate both with the set of acrylic maneuver templates awarded to the Top 8 participants at the North American Championships.

Top 4

You have to be a tremendous leader to rally your troops and command them all the way to the North American Championships Top 4. Accordingly, we'll want to see you competing for the game's top honors at the 2018 Runewars Miniatures Game World Championships!

For their efforts, each of the Top 4 players at the 2018 Runewars Miniatures Game North American Championships will earn a free event ticket for the 2018 Runewars Miniatures Game World Championships.

Runner-Up

The North American Championship Runner-Up earns a first-round bye in addition to the reserved seat and free event entry. More than this, the Runner-Up also walks away with a plaque commemorating his or her placement.

Champion

What scene will we witness at the end of the 2018 Runewars Miniatures Game North American Championships?

Will we find the battlefields strewn with dead bodies—only to witness those bodies jerk upright under the influence of Waiqar the Undying's foul necromancy? Will we hear the whoops and howls of the victorious Uthuk Y'llan? Will we find the Latari slipping quietly back into the shadows of their forest home?

No matter which army proves victorious, it will find no more battles at Gen Con Indy 2018. Instead, that army—and its commander—will need to look for another battlefield. A larger battlefield. One that could shape the fate of Terrinoth.

In addition to a stunning trophy and all the other prizes he or she will have won, the 2018 Runewars Miniatures Game North American Champions will receive a free flight and lodging for the 2018 Runewars Miniatures Game World Championships!

Moreover, because—if you win—you will have come fresh from one of the greatest battles in all of Terrinoth, you won't need to concern yourself with the smaller battles at the outset of the World Championships. If you wish, you'll be able to lead your troops straight into the second round, fresh and rested on the strength of a first-round Prize Bye.

Additionally, as the North American Champion, you will be able to invite a single guest to join you for the 2018 Runewars Miniatures Game World Championships. The North American Champion will be able to invite a single guest who will receive free entry to the event.
