Yep. And if you do it like that you could probably play one game a day and leave the rest of the weekend free.

Norse wrote:One idea:

Everyone has 3 lists - one at 500, one at 750 one at 1000 - as per Paul's idea. Figures can obviously be reused between different lists. Each player also has 3 mission cards and 3 strategy cards (either ones from 2nd edition itself or new ones that we generate that allow for underdog armies to still achieve a specific objective) and assigns one of each to each of their 3 forces.

You play one game with each of your 3 forces. Player who accumulates the most victory points wins.


I like this idea a lot!

Re: WH40k Second Edition Tournament

I would definitely be interested in joining in! I would probably bring either Chaos or Orks, unless I paint an uncharacteristic number of Marines over the next few months.

We always need more xenos or heretics. :)

Re: WH40k Second Edition Tournament

I might be coming to BOYL2019, and I have plenty of Guard, but I never played 2nd Ed. My only experience is 1st and 8th, as there was a bit of a gap. I have plenty of Guard, Marines, Eldar and drible of Orks.

That’s fine mate! We’ll teach you. The one thing I would say is to try and get onto eBay and grab a copy of the old Guard Codex and rule book. They are usually cheap as chips but it will give you a steer!

Re: WH40k Second Edition Tournament

So I think I’m going to go for a Sisters of Battle Force for this tournament as it is one of my favourite second edition codices!!

I have a 'battletome' version, so I can get the reference and points right, but I'll have a look and see if I can acquire and original.
