Agram Arena Summer 2014 Report

July in Zagreb is always time for wargaming extravaganza. UMS "Agram" has been organizing an annual event called Agram Arena Summer for twelve years running. This year, we organized this event to stretch over two weekends.
On July 12th and 13th as the first part of Agram Arena Summer, UMS "Agram" organized two parallel competitions, an international Warhammer 40.000 tournament and Black Queen Hobby and Miniature Painting competition. Players and painters from Croatia and many neighbouring and not-so-neighbouring countries like Slovenia, Serbia, Austria, Germany, UK and Poland attended this year's competition.



Frederic "Athenys" Eysell from Germany and one of the main 40k referees on the upcoming European Team Championship (ETC 2014):
At Agram Arena Summer everyone is a winner! The amount and quality of prizes is astonishing and the fact, that this is a free tournament makes it almost unbelievable… Honestly, if someone would ask you: „Would you like to go to a free tournament? The Top 3 prizes and best painted army AND best overall have a combined worth of about 400(?)€, oh yeah…there are gonna be prizes for ALL participants as well….and free catering as well… for both days!“ This person must have a damn good reason to say no. I was happy to see a nicely mixed crowd on AAS, too. Slovenians, Serbians, Austrians, a German and Croatians in a ratio of about 50:50…really nice!


Final Results of the 40k tournament:

  • 1. Domagoj Mitrović, CRO
  • 2. Igor Uzelac, SRB
  • 3. Frederic Eysell, GER
  • Best Painted Army: Frederic Eysell, GER



While the battle in the 41st millenium raged in one part of the hall, the other was reserved for the more quiet part of the event - the painting competition. It was judged by our pannel of judges over several categories, and as usual, all of our visitors and participants could decide one of the prestigious awards - the People's Choice Award.




Final Results of the Black Queen Hobby and Miniature Painting Competition:
Single Miniature:

  • 1. Wojciech Tekielski, POL (Viruk)
  • 2. Domagoj Mitrović, CRO
  • 3. Vilim Pokupec, AUT

A week later, on July 19th and 20th, a third annual international Malifaux tournament took place. Parallel to this event, loads of demos of various tabletop wargames (like Flames of War, Warmachine/Hordes, Infinity, Warhammer 40.000) were presented as well as all of our programmes with special emphasys on our Library where visitors and competitiors could leaf through or read any and all of the books UMS "Agram" has. Also, one of the fun features this year was an "open" training of the Croatian National Team for the upcoming ETC Warhammer Fantasy Battles event.

The Malifaux tournament consisted of three 40SS and three 55SS games upon which all the scoring was summed up along with the sportsmanship and painting results. The top two players got to play in the Grand Finale on a ruined monastery board for the win of the tournament and the rest fought it out for the rest of the placings in multiplayer game with 4 players per board.





















Here's an account of the Malifaux tournament by Luka Kveštak, the youngest participant at fourteen year of age and the second place winner of the tournament:
This was my first Malifaux tournament and I loved it, mainly because I was playing with people who were really tolerant and helping me out with the rules. I also appreciated all the "hanging out" throughout the weekend with the guys, for the morning coffees, lunches and evening drinks! I managed to win 4 out of 6 games so I ended up in the Grand Finale. The player I was playing against in grand finale was afraid that he would lose against a total noob and that everyone would be mocking him but that still didn't stop him from reminding me to turn on my triggers or that when I forgot to do something. He really was the best opponent I could get and in the end a deserved winner of the event. I really liked the organisation of the event and I look forward to getting my own crew (one of the players lent me his crew) from the voucher code from Wyrd online store I received as my prize!

Final Results of the Malifaux tournament:

  • 1. Ivan Polanšćak, CRO (Edgar Ronchester)
  • 2. Luka Kveštak, CRO
  • 3. Tomislav Rac, CRO (Linus McMold)
  • Best Painted Crew: Wojciech Tekielski, POL (Viruk) 



In the end, UMS "Agram" would like to thank the sponsors of this event for all the help and providing the prizes: City of Zagreb, Zagreb's Association of Technical Culture, Ravnice Youth Hostel, Carta Magica, Micro Art Studio, Secret Weapon Miniatures, Battlefield Berlin, MDP, Figone, Escenorama, Terrible Kids Stuff, Infamy Miniatures, Phlegyas Art, Hangar 18 Miniatures, Art Zumbur, Wamp, Mr Black Publications and, of course, Figure Painter Magazine for providing media coverage of this event!

See you next year!!

Must have been a really great event. I wish I could have been there! Next year I will do my best to come in person. I feel very happy about my results in the Black Queen painting contest, especially with tough competition (winning against some of my favorite painters does feel great).
