Cheers guys... all sounding good so far.

Also a friend is interested in joining but isn't on this forum - I can get him to sign up if that makes the logistics easier (let me know) but for now it's:
Imperial guard
points: 4000 at least. They are modern models, not oldskool ones - I have assumed this will be ok? They are all really well painted.
2e exp: likewise a game we managed last year and before that, the 90s, but lots of other wargaming experience besides that.
Rules: he has the rules, DM, and all the codices

What sort of houseruling are you thinking of? CC went OK in my (extremely limited!) experience, contrary to expectations it wasn't too clunky. Our game also went pretty quickly since we just used the suggested 4-turn game length, which I never used to as a kid... it was annihilation or nothing back then!

Really looking forward to this everyone! :D


It’s definitely worth getting him to sign up just for ease of communication. Any models welcome!!

Close combat does work okay... however it can take ages when facing horde armies (whiskey priest and I played a game a few BOYL ago and his hordes of tyranids took a while to work through). Usually not an issue but if we want to squeeze more games in the tourney I would suggest resurrecting the old RT melee Rules.

Re: WH40k Second Edition Tournament

Army/Faction being used Death Guard
Total points size of force 1000 points of Death Guard isn't very much so I could probably field 3k. I thought we were doing 1000, 750 and 500?
Experience of Second Edition Not much. Played alot of Necromunda. Played all the other versions of 40k, read the rules recently.
Confirm possession of rules, wargear list and Codex....I have none! I will bring play-pack-reference sheet of my army and special rules.

Re: WH40k Second Edition Tournament

Hi chaps

I'm just looking at the various game threads vs. bookings and I'm not seeing any tables booked for anything that correlates to the games planned here. There are still a few slots for the 6x4s, but they are running out fast. Likewise, there are some 6x6s, but again, they're going quickly. Could I ask that you get your bookings in?

Thanks
Regards

Gaj

Curtis - I’m thinking of two tables, what are your thoughts?

Can all those that are still playing post below with the following:

Army/Faction being used
Total points size of force
Experience of Second Edition
Confirm possession of rules, wargear list and Codex....

I’m thinking about introducing some house rules, just to bottom out issues... particularly around close combat. Anyone got any issues?


I will be playing Orks. I will bring 500/750/1000 lists, although I could probably field a wee bit more, particularly if I get my painting done this summer. I played 2nd all the time back in the 90s, but haven't lately. I have the rulebooks and codex, but no physical wargear cards.

Re: WH40k Second Edition Tournament

Hi, I am planning my first visit to Boyl this year and would like to participate at the 40k tournament. I played 2nd Edition many years ago, but collect and paint the 2nd edition models. Nobody here willing to play 2nd...
i would bring my Space Wolves, as I travel from Germany I don’t have space for Tyranids:(
How are the games planned, is there a special day for all 3 games or do we have to Organise the games ourselves?

Re: WH40k Second Edition Tournament

Just use the standard csm list and use Nurgle models. Then you can field more models...

Re: WH40k Second Edition Tournament

Hello, Iwould like to get in on this please. I just aquired the 2nd edition rules so I will try to put together an army for this. I hope to get chaos renegades painted in time but failing that i could use the genestealers.

Re: WH40k Second Edition Tournament

Hello everyone I’m new. I’m interested in playing imperial guard at your event. Does it matter that the models are the plastic Cadians? I started playing 40k during 2nd and have just started replaying it again with the ork player on this thread.
