    Hello everybody,

    This year I'm part of the organizing team (other members are MattBab, Dunan and Darkdoji) for the French Satellite which will happen on April 27th and 28th 2019 in Paris' suburb (in a city called Antony).

    I - The registration


    It's a two steps process.

    First you have to send an e-mail to : merovingiansatellite[at]gmail.com

    In this mail you have to write your ITS nickname, your ITS pin number (and also if you have allergy, necessary for us to prepare the food).

    Then, we will send you an e-mail with all the informations for payement (25€, covering the tournament fees, meal on saturday and sunday and prizes for every participant).

    Once you have paid, you will receive an invitation to join the tournament on the OTM.

    There are 50 spots.

    Deadline for list uploading is April 19th.

    II - The venue

    1 Avenue Léon Harmel, 92160 Antony
    https://goo.gl/maps/f58pJ6Yfka22

    Off course, the venue is accessible from Paris using line RER B (about 4€ a ticket, 40 min from the middle of Paris). It is also close to "Orly Airport" and "Massy TGV station". Line RER B begins at "Charles de Gaulles (CDG) Airport" so it is also accessible from there but it's at least a 1h train ride.

    There are a few cheap hotels nearby (at least for Paris) like this one :
    https://www.booking.com/hotel/fr/ibis-massy.fr.html

    Or this one :
    http://www.booking.com/Share-hVAsx9

    If you are planning to come from abroad contact me via private message and I shall help you arrange your trip and stay.


    III - Tournament rules

    It will be an ITS season 10 tournament, no extra (ecept the special rule below), 300 points and 6 SWC.
    There will be 5 games.
    Pairing will be random for the first game.
    Mesure will be in Cm

    Special rule for this tournament :
    Because there is a TAG mission, the following armies will be allowed to recruit Scarface and Cordelia, without the Soldiers of fortune extra and without any extra cost (no 1 cap fee)

    - Imperial Service
    - Generalist Ariadna
    - Caledonian Highlander Army
    - USAriadna Ranger Force
    - Tartary Army Corps
    - Hassassin Bahram
    - Steel Phalanx

    Just take them with "NA2-MERCS" option, and do not care about having 7 point of CAP because of Soldier of Fortune extra.


    Missions will be :

    Saturday :
    - Deadly dance
    - Highly classified
    - Acquisition

    Sunday :
    - Unmasking
    - Supplies


    NOTICE : referees will do their best to apply rules and last FAQs. But whatever the ruling, the referee answer is final and you have to respect its decision.

    Players have to bring their own material, models, printed army lists and rules.
    Arc of view has to be clearly painted on the base.

    PLANNING :

    Saturday 27 april
    Welcome : 9h00 - 9h30
    1st game : 9h30 - 11h45
    Lunch break : 11h45 - 13h
    2nd game : 13h00 - 15h15
    3rd game : 15h30 - 17h45

    Sunday 28 april

    4th game : 9h15 - 11h30
    Lunch break : 11h30 - 12h45
    5th game : 12h45 - 15h
    Result and prize annoucement : 15h15 -15h30

    Edit : Dates of the event are 100% sure. If you book a plane make sur you have some extra time to pack your things or just in case we run late. We will do our best to keep the event on time, especially on the last round so that you guys don't have any plane / train issue.


    IV - Painted armies lottery

    Furthermore, even if painting is not mandatory, we will organize a lottery between all players with entirely painted armies (meaning both lists) with prizes to win, in order to promote army painting.


    V - Painting contest

    Finally, we will organise an amateur painting contest, totally optional. The registration will occurs the saturday 27th. Each participant can propose 1 to 5 miniatures of human size (they must be coherent between them, like a team, up to the judge to decide, if your are not sure send us an E-mail), or one big miniature, or a diorama. It must be themed in the Infinity universe or a cyberpunk one. It is not mandatory to propose a miniature that you actually play in game. Actually it would be more convenient if you don't play with these miniatures.


    See you there guys.

    PS : you can already see some of the beautiful tables we will have here :

    I edited the main topic with a special rule :

    Because there is a TAG mission, the following armies will be allowed to recruit Scarface and Cordelia, without the Soldiers of fortune extra and without any extra cost (no 1 cap fee)

    - Imperial Service
    - Generalist Ariadna
    - Caledonian Highlander Army
    - USAriadna Ranger Force
    - Tartary Army Corps
    - Hassassin Bahram
    - Steel Phalanx

    Just take them with "NA2-MERCS" option, and do not care about having 7 point of CAP because of Soldier of Fortune extra.


    I also add the part IV and V about the lottery for painted armies (to promote playing fully painted armies) and the painting contest (these are two different things).

    Well we have fireworks too. That's true. If you like it feel welcome. :-)

    Unfortunately that was like a month ago.
    Next one is for July 14th (national day) I think. Now it's more like :

    Yeah, the Yellow Gilets thing is losing strength. There are still some demonstrations each week-end but they aren't as big and demonstrative as they were two months ago. I know Americans aren't used to this and something at this scale has been unseen for some decades in France but it's progressively depleting. Who knows how things will be in two months? If you want to visit Paris during the week before or after (since we'll be playing during the whole week-end), you won't have more problems the ones you can usually have.

    The results will be update on army soon (if not already). But for the lists it's up to the players to do that (but I doubt a list without insight and explanations is useful).

    So the tournament is over. It was great for us as organizers to see all of you looking happy. We hope you really had a good time.

    A big thank you to the volunteer of the association ALESIA who don't necessarily play infinity and helped us a LOT dueong the week end. Would not have been possible to provide for breakfast and meals and such a warm welcome without them.

    A big thank you to Cédric / Dunan, one of the organizer who made 9 of these great looking tables and some goodies as prizes.

    http://hced.fr/

    A big thank you also to all our generous sponsors :
    Corvus Belli, Gamemat, Micro Art Studio, legion distribution (distributor of the game in France) and uchronie (a local store).

    I will post a short video soon but already if you wanna see the table they are on Facebook :
