Paul, I know it might seem cheeky, but is there any possibility of me only playing 1 list next week? I've just got a 15 point Reznik list and still have to put it all together. I can borrow Munson's stuff to make a second list, but don't really want to. What do you reckon?

If you can force yourself to borrow a second list I really would prefer it. Simply because it's what I've asked of all the other players and it's the norm for WM tournaments.

However, as this is a fairly informal affair, I will let you use only one list with the proviso that you will be ranked below anyone else with the same number of wins. i.e. as a negative tiebreaker with more importance than scenario points etc.

How does that sound?

Cheers Paul, that's fine. I'm sure I'll be propping up the table by game 2 anyway :lots of love: .

This will be my list:

High Executioner Servath Reznik +6
Vigilant 4
Castigator 8
Hierophant 2
Flameguard Cleansers (Leader and 5 Grunts) 5
Allegiant of the Order of the Fist 2

Hi guys... Not meaning it in a funny way at all (total newbie here! :wink: ) but what's the thinking behind taking more than one list in tournaments? Do the lists have to be from separate factions? Do you have to use different casters?

Just asking out of genuine interest! :D

There's a couple of things with the way this works in Warmachine at the moment.

1: It allows you to cover your weaknesses over two or more lists. Since you have to use all the lists you might find yourself forced to play a certain list late on in a tournament. So there is a balancing factor. It sounds cheesy, but in practice it works well, you rarely find yourself fighting a lost cause and both players' armies are suited to fighting each other rather than getting a chance one-sided mismatch.

2: 'Character restrictions' Historically you had complete freedom of choice as to what went into your lists. Now models with an army limit of 'C' (for character) can only be taken in one of your lists. Previously C was functionally the same as having an army limit of 1. This means you have to think which of your lists have certain key components.

Looks like Tom only has a single +1 so you technically have a free space!

I know Munson was expressing an interest, I shall chase him up.

Well I picked 7 lists, but I haven't played either Vayl in mkII, and Evayl is in bits so I think I'll be rocking 5 lists.

And I'll make this pledge if Proph is ok with it. I'll number my lists 1-5 and my opp can roll a dice, I'll play the list it matches unless they roll a 6 and then I get to pick :) . 15 points is a bit of crap shoot in truth anyway.

If you want to dice for it I'll say 'ask your opponent first'. I can't see a problem with it, and I can't see your opponents having a problem with it either, but best to ask.

It's all for fun anyway.
