How many teams are we looking at? Would it be hugely boring to have a second team of 'Zons in the lineup? I've got the awesome Willy Miniatures Amazon team awaiting assembly and a lick of paint, so I'd love to use them.

(Alternatively I also have the Willy Miniatures Chaos Team, which are also seriously cool. But Chaos feel a bit awkward for a short weekend league.)

Who sculpts the Willy Miniatures stuff? Some of it's very nice.

No idea I'm afraid. Their style seems to have really taken off in the last couple of years - a lot of the pre-Chaos team project minis are a bit cartoonish in my opinion, but the beastmen in particular from that project are some of the nicest minis I've ever seen. The Chaos Warriors are great too, but they are huge, like, almost as big as WH Fantasy Ogres.

That raises a good point though actually - all the Willy stuff seems to be a bit on the large side. The 'Zons are all about half a head taller than standard GW 28mm heroic minis.

Seems somewhere around 8 teams would be my max to stop it becoming too large and Chaotic.

As for a second Zon team use whatever you want, as for Chaos that's the team I'm running with with no skills it's a hard slog but should be a good laugh at least.

You can see a Willy Miniature with a chainsaw in that pic, and aye they are fecking big fellas. 32mm Heroics.

Edit: It's not a league, so no levelling up for those unsure.

Aye It's not a League but rather a ''Swiss'' event of stand alone one on one games, with games won /Cas Scored/TD's to work out the winner. Plus best looking teams and most sportmanship award is equal to the champion reward so it's not about winning more about having fun.

Oh and I'm using Chaos for the event, real men can run them without problems hehe ;)

I imagine my mate Jimbo will be in. He's well into his BB, and has some painted teams ready to go. He's also been the keenest from LAGGNOG to attend BOYL 2015.

Are Dwarves banned or are we just grumbling loudly at any Dwarf players? (Much like they should be if they are getting into character.)

Quick question:

Are we using starting teams? (I.e. 1 000 000 gc) or slightly more generous starting funds? (Say an extra 100 000)

Just asking as without skills, it may allow for a few positionals.
