BLOOD Angels, Imperial Guardsmen
and Space Marines will be infiltrating
and conducting deep strikes during the
ADF Wargaming Championships in
Townsville on December 10-11.
As part of the Soldiers Opportunities
for Recreation and Development
(SORD) initiative started by 3 Bde,
Defence personnel will represent their
units by competing in tabletop war
games and fundraising for Legacy
The Warhammer 40,000 tournament
at Lavarack Barracks will include the
application of tactics and celebrate the
skills of exceptional hobbyists, reward-
ing players who embody good sporting
behaviour and gaming etiquette.
Cpl Tyron Casey, 1RAR, is the
tournament organiser and said one of
the ADF Wargaming Association's
(ADFWGA) aims was to promote table-
top Wargaming as an alternative recrea-
tional activity within Defence.
"The principle of the hobby is about
having two opposing armies on a battle-
field fighting to a scenario or mission to
win the conflict," Cpl Casey said.
"We make all the models, buildings
and terrain from scratch, which is one of
the categories judged as well as the com-
petitors' success on the tabletop."
The game systems being run for the
tournament are Warhammer 40,000,
which is a science fiction war game,
and Warmachine, which is inspired by
fantasy steampunk -- a science fiction
Serving ADF and APS members are
eligible to enter the event, with entries
for this year closing on December 1.

Set to deploy
By Capts Sean Childs
and Felicity Hamblin
VICTORIAN-based troops from
4 Bde have been working hard to
prepare for a deployment to East
Timor next year.
Pre-deployment preparation for
Timor-Leste Task Group 4 is an
intensive skill-building process to
ensure the team is fully ready.
Exercise Talisman Sabre was
an opportunity for 4 Bde to put its
reservists through their paces along-
side ARA personnel.
Pte Cameron Dudgeon, 5/6RVR,
said working alongside full-time sol-
diers for the exercise demonstrated
the flexibility and depth of reservist
"By integrating with full-time
colleagues and successfully carrying
out complex and demanding tasks
over a two-week period, all of us
proved we are a valuable resource,"
More than 200 4 Bde personnel
are training for next year's eight-
month deployment to East Timor.
All soldiers are members of the
High Readiness Reserve, having
completed additional training and
committed to deploy at short notice.
Be prepared: Commander 4 Bde Brig Robert Marsh briefs troops deployed to Shoalwater Bay during Ex
