Have you made your plans for Anime North yet? We have. This will be our 13th Anime North, but since we just celebrated our 25th anniversary, we’re doing something different this year; something big…something awesome…something to be announced soon!
Want to know more? Stay tuned to the #TarantulaNorth to find out what’s in store!
Are you someone who’s looking to help out your friendly neighbourhood comic and gaming store with their annual appearance at Anime North? If so, we need your skills to make it all happen again!
Whether you have helped us before or this is your first time, we are looking for drivers, set-up and tear-down crew, salespeople, and everything in between for #animenorth at the end of May.
Send us an email to email@example.com, with Anime North 2017 in the subject line. Make sure to include any relevant skill or experience (like helping us out before) in the body of your email, along with your contact information and your age. While it’s great to be young, it’s the law to keep people under 18 out of dangerous areas without proper training.
Thanks and see you there!

The prizes are 15% off of any one item from Games-Workshop’s webstore, orderable through the Hairy Tarantula!

Largest army (By points value)
Best Paintjob (Voted by the players)
Coolest Conversion (Voted by the players)
First to kill a Gargantuan Creature or Super Heavy Vehicle
First to be Eliminated
WHAT TO BRING:
An army (preferably of no more than 5000 points to make sure there is enough table space for everyone), allied detachments are perfectly fine, just be careful with the allegiances of your forces, Tyranids and Grey knights are unlikely to battle together after all!
Horus Heresy models and Primarchs are perfectly fine, if you’ve got em, bring em!
Proxy models will not be permitted, assembled and unpainted is fine!
All upgrades should be visibly modeled on the miniature. What you see is what you get!
Each Warlord is worth 5 victory points when destroyed.
Each Super-Heavy is worth 1 victory point for each 3 hull points it has, scored when the vehicle is destroyed.
Each Gargantuan Creature is worth 1 victory point for every 3 wounds it has, scored when the creature is destroyed.
Each enemy unit destroyed is worth 1 victory point.
If you intend to attend the event, please post what you will be bringing here: EVENT PAGE – This will allow you to coordinate with your potential team-mates!
