750? One day? Hardcore! I've long wanted to do one of those...

More seriously, I'd be interested in coming along regardless of points (or cost, out of those listed) if only I can get to Daventry somehow. Will work on that.

1st prize - PP coin and certificate, gold card redemption, £15 TGV voucher
2nd prize - PP coin and certificate, £10 TGV voucher
3rd prize - PP coin and certificate, £5 TGV voucher
Best Painted - £10 TGV voucher (disqualified if I know you paid to get it painted somewhere else :) )

Come one you know you want to :D

To give everyone a heads up, the current entry price is £10 but if we get enough people we might be able to drop that down to £7.50. Similarly the points you play will depend on a) the number of players and b) how late we can keep the 'Vault open. To give you an idea 10 players at 750 points will mean us finishing about 1830 working on 25 mins between rounds. Thanks for the support guys :)

Play what you like :) You can bring 2 lists if you want, or just bring one army and play it all day. Will make the final call on the points to be played Wed next week once I know who is confirmed to come.

Sorry Richard, the two lists must both be of the same faction.

Hello there, I will be coming along to this aswell (with Jere - CapusMente), so put me (and him) on the list please. ^_^

Just to clarify tho: 750 points, 2 lists (show opponents, choose one, blah blah), 2 Hrs per game? It is okey that the vast majority of my stuff (think 98%) still isn't painted? £10 entry fee?

OK guys the final setup for the tournament on Saturday is a 500 point Steamroller costing £7.50 a head.

You need to bring with you:

  • Your armies :) Fully painted armies are eligible for the best painted prize but painted models are not required to play in the tournament.
  • 2 army lists (printed/written legibly so that I can check them) if you want to bring more than one list - they must both be the same faction though.
  • Dice
  • Measuring implement
  • Fury/Focus etc markers

I need people to try to get to the shop for as close to 0900 as they can so that I can check lists and assign tables for the first round before we start play at 0930.

The basic rules for the tournament are:

  • Each round will last 85 minutes + 2xD6 with a 25 minute changeover between the end of the longest running game in that round and the beginning of the next round.
  • Turns are 10 minutes each but I only intend to start timing people if complaints are made about people stalling.
  • Once per game you may declare that you are taking a longer than usual turn of up to 15 minutes.
  • A 15 minute warning will be given before the end of a round if people are still playing.
  • "Dice down" will be called at the end of the time. Any player in the middle of an action may finish that action but may not finish their turn.

I'll run over how everything will happen on the day with a few other "housekeeping" notices but I look forward to seeing you all there. Any questions in the meantime PM me or post here.

Thanks for all your support for this guys.

Helen can this not be 750 as i have been play testing a 750 point army, Richard has spent the last week painting his 750 so he can impress everyone and i was really looking forward to breaking in a epic warcaster which i bought for this event.

Guys the reason for 500 points is time.

Put it this way, IF everything ran to time and IF there were no problems playing a 750 tournament with 12 guys starting at 0930 we'd be lucky to finish by 1900! Put another way, when Cerberus (the guys who do all the big tournaments at things like the Games Expo) ran the one up in Manchester I helped out with we had I think it was 10 guys playing 500point games and that was scheduled over 2 days with 5 of us running it :shock: I guess what I'm trying to say is that its going to be a struggle to get it in at 500 points never mind trying to manage it at 750.

Sorry to disappoint you guys but we did say from the start that the points would depend on the number of players.
