Warmachine and Hordes

Ancient rivalries have thrown the Iron Kingdoms into centuries-old war; its nations locked in a continual battle for supremacy. Commanding the forces in this struggle are elite mages, who control titanic steam-powered automatons in battle, in hopes of obtaining glory and power for their nation. Beyond the boundaries of the industrialized world, formidable factions harness the power of the wilds to vie for domination. Leading them into battle are arcane warriors who wield the power of monstrous creatures. Their spirits bound together, they are more than a match for the mightiest forces of the Iron Kingdoms.

At MuseOn Con you can command your forces against the mightiest foes from all across the nation, in hopes of winning a spot in the Warmachine Weekend Invitational!

Warmachine and Hordes Events: 

Guild Ball

Traditionally, mob football is casually played between neighbouring towns and families. Players on opposing teams clash to control a leather-wrapped inflated pig's bladder and attempt to kick it into the opponent’s goal. The powerful Guilds of the land have taken the sport to a whole new level; creating professional Guild sponsored teams and structured leagues. Games are now played out in front of vast crowds of fans, where fortunes are won or lost on the kick of a ball.

Come try out your skills on the pitch, as you captain your team towards victory in the regional qualifier at MuseOn Con.

Guild Ball Events:


Infinity recreates high-stakes missions on the battlefront or behind enemy lines, where victory or death are a trigger pull away. Players command a small group of elite soldiers, chosen for their suitability for the mission parameters at hand. Each operation requires a different skillset, and building an effective team from hand-picked members of different regiments is key to a successful mission.

Command your elite task-force through perilous operations and vie for victory in our IDOT event.

Infinity Events:


Based in an alternate Earth, Malifaux uses gothic, steampunk, and victorian horror with a dose of the wild west to inject fun and depth into the magical lawlessness of a world rife with monsters, necropunks, man-machine hybrids, gunslingers, and powerhungry politicos. Seek your fortune in this fast paced tabletop miniature skirmish game.

Assemble your crew and stake your claim at MuseOn Con.

Malifaux Events: 


Take the role of squad leader and command a group of merciless Imperial or daring Rebel pilots in furious ship-to-ship space combat.

Utilize your skills, and outmaneuver your opponent to become Top Gun at MuseOn Con.

X-Wing Events:


The Batman Miniature Game is a tabletop skirmish game featuring the powerful heroes and evil villains of the DC universe. Will you join the Dark Knight against the mobsters who terrorize Gotham, or will you join his enemies to bring chaos to the streets and take back the night?

Assemble your crew and fight for control of Gotham at MuseOn Con.
