Calling all gaming, role players and hobby enthusiasts ; SouthCon lands this  Queens Birthday weekend and we are overjoyed to have your support. Included below for perusal at your leisure is a compendium of what to expect. The club and organisers wish you a great weekends hobby fun.


House Keeping
On arrival at SouthCon Saturday morning, please sign get yourself signed in and square any  bills that might be outstanding; in cash please as we’ll not have official eftpos facilities and the nearest ATM is a long walk.
If you have a fully paid pass this will be as simple as ticking a box and getting your gift bag.
Then follow directions to your gaming area, your umpire will have all other information for you. Please wear your security pass as it will help keep us all health and safety sound…smile..


Please check out your player pack.

Please arrive with plenty of time before your first game to orientate yourself, unpack your gaming wares, and to be ready for a good day of gaming.



The restaurant and bar are open all day.

We will be selling snacks and soft drinks, located on the gaming floor from our SouthCon canteen /commissary. We have also sourced a small supply of freshly catered Wraps and Rolls .

The SouthCon Painting Competition
The beautiful side of miniature gaming is celebrating the efforts made into making our gaming pieces look good (or evil) on the gaming surface. My personal opinion is that it is simply great to have models on display and one of my favourite things is to identify pieces used inside conversions. I would like to see models on display all weekend for people to marvel at.
Our annual painting comp reflects this part of our hobby. We have two great glass cabinets exactly for this.

 The judging will be done on Saturday evening so if you wish to enter something you are competitively playing with you may enter it after your last tournament game on Saturday, before 6:30pm and collect before gaming starts on Sunday morning.

Safety Laws
Event safety has become a lot more complicated with new laws. There will be a few ‘Safety Marshals’ in case of emergency, on the most part it will be me, but there will be others who will fill the role if I am not available or not on the premises for any reason.  If there is a state of emergency you are required to follow a Safety Marshal’s directions. The process of signing in each day and the security passes are in fact a part of this.

Friday Set-up
We’re setting up from 3pm till 9pm on Friday 1st June. If anyone is available to help shift stuff and set up, Thank you,  Ideally we can finish long before it actually hits 9pm.

The Otago Miniature Tacticians Society and SouthCon organisers will not stand for racist, sexist, or otherwise bigoted behaviour. We care about providing a healthy and competitive gaming scene for everyone. If we see or hear any abuse, the offending person will be reprimanded and if necessary expelled.

Remember to bring everything you need to play: Measuring equipment, markers, your models and a pleasant attitude.
Pencils, notepad, and fun will be provided though feel free to bring your own as well.

 Compendium of what to do…
