Cancon 2013

It’s getting near that time. The Canberra Games Society Inc is presenting Cancon 2013 which comes up in 11 weeks time. First Christmas, then Cancon. This year many of the Cancon events, like the DBA event, will be part of the Worlds. Good chance to come to Oz, enjoy the warmth of a Canberra summer (not to mention the sweet sounds of the crickets chirruping and the bogans flapping ((the moths, not the rev-heads)). It is also the centenary year for Canberra so another good reason to visit the Australian national capital.

As it is the World’s for DBA, then it is a great time for players from around Asia to trek off to Canberra and compete and maybe be crowned World Champion. I guess I am competing as team Singapore (now where did I put my white t-shirt and red shorts)?

Details can be found at

Now I just need to work out two DBA Armies – one from books 1 or 2, the other from books 3 or 4 and then paint and base them ready for the competition.

    Or you could help get the DBMM accredited as the Worlds… 😉 The choice is yours, and as I will be playing DBMM, it wont look so much like you are scared of playing me …

    You are welcome to come play DBA but hey, if you want to stay playing that quaint little Aussies only game and not play with the real men, well, you know where to find me. 😛

    Looking at visiting 17th of November if you are there? Also need to decide two armies for DBA and paint them!

      17th should be good, I am in the Blue Mountains that week but should be back Thursday. And it wont just be Aussies playing!

        Ah, but Kiwis are just damp Aussies mate! Not like REAL international folks 😉

        This one’s a Pom, no Kiwis so far.. just as well, they have a bad habit of coming over and nicking our wargames silver…

    Hi Ian,

    Thanks for the plug for DBA at CANCON.

      Pleasure Greg – I am looking forward to it. Just started the planning session last night but need to get back to Oz to see what DBA armies are in stock to bring back here and paint.
