What is the Breast Cancer Brawl?
The Breast Cancer Brawl is an effort to raise money for breast cancer research, advocacy, education, and support organizations. The event is a fantasy table-top miniatures tournament and… painting competition using the popular WARMACHINE and HORDES game systems.

Entry fees to the event are donated to the breast cancer organization being sponsored. In addition, a unique tournament format is used to encourage additional donations throughout the tournament so that friendly competition can benefit a good cause. Privateer Press, the creators of the WARMACHINE and HORDES game systems and miniature lines, provides prize support for the event including special prizes for the tournament winner and the most generous donor.

The Breast Cancer Brawl is global in scope with charity tournaments happening around the world annually from September to December. With enough events, we all hope to do our part to help “knock out breast cancer”.

What is a fantasy table-top miniatures game?

A fantasy table-top miniatures game is a game that pits two players in a simulated battle using metal miniatures to represent various fantastic creatures, heroic soldiers and powerful machines of war. The game is played on a table with three dimensional scale scenery that represents hills, trees and other battlefield features. Dice are used to determine the success or failure of actions upon the table-top battlefield. During the Breast Cancer Brawl, participants will play in a series of games against opponents in a bracketed format where winners play winners until one player emerges undefeated at the end of the day. A typical game lasts about an hour and a half. Fantasy table-top miniature games also include a hobby aspect as players must assemble and paint their miniatures for use in the game. Warmachine and Hordes are award-winning and compatible fantasy table-top miniatures games by Privateer Press.

About the Breast Cancer Brawl Team
The idea for this project began in 2007 with a tribute project – one member of the Breast Cancer Brawl team wanted to paint one of his collected miniatures armies in pink in remembrance of his mother who had passed away from breast cancer. From there, it
quickly gathered volunteers to the idea and grew to a global effort. The Breast Cancer Brawl Team is a group of dedicated
Privateer Press fans that have volunteered to organize and administrate the global Breast Cancer Brawl events. Many of us have been personally touched by breast cancer in one way or another in our personal lives and this is just one way we are helping to raise awareness and fight the disease.
