Clash for a Cure, the brainchild of Richard Courtney, will be coming to Kileen, Texas this September 12th-14th. The event was started back in 2010 as a way to raise money for the American Cancer Society and enjoy wargaming at the same time. The event uses Warmachine and Hordes, one of our most favored wargames published by Privateer Press, as the game format for an amazing tournament and a way for miniature painters to show off their skills. In 2011 Malifaux, another favorite of ours, was added, along with Jimmy Gollihar as a co-organizer.
This will be the fourth year for the event, and since its inauguration it’s built up a lot of steam. Following the steampunk aesthetic (as both games involved very much do), it attracts all sorts of players and fans of both the games and the genre. The Clash for a Cure 2014 will serve as an official qualifier for Warmachine Weekend, and there will be all sorts of things to do at the event. You can take part in the Iron Arena, the COG, and even attend a charity auction for expertly-painted models by some of the best in the business.
A three-day pass will cost you $55, and with it you’ll be able to get your wargame on all weekend. The event’s official website has all the information you need, such as a schedule, directions, and more. If you’re in the Texas area this September, this may be something you want to check out. Not only is it an amazing tournament for two of the best games out there, but it’s a way to support the American Cancer Society!
