Re: WH40k Second Edition Tournament

I guess the best way is to just to habe some friendly games.I will be available from Friday to Sunday and will bring 1500p space wolves. Have not played 2nd since 25 years, but am used the new editions and read the rules. Would really like to play with somebody with 2nd experience.
Don’t know how the table reservations work but would like to pre arrange some games so I don’t carry all the models to the UK without gaming. Won’t be able to bring any printed material, no more space in the backpack.

I think "chainsword and sorcery" might refer to us?

Finished my 1500 points list and started packing the models. I guess security at the airport will drool about the strange things on their X-ray....

Re: WH40k Second Edition Tournament

OK, so it looks like we have a good number of tables. I think what we do when we get there is that we set up a matchmaking board. As each 2nd ed player arrives, we just jot down their name and force as well as the available tables and use that central point to arrange matches. We log wins, losses, and draws (or victory points)? And we just play and have fun. Winner gets, I dunno, bragging rights. If someone can bring a small portable whiteboard that'd be super useful.

We have a good number of tables available, and if we can't assign any at the beginning of a slot, we can turn them over to the Kill Team players, who I know will be looking for more space to play.

I will bring rulebooks and other gaming supplies, but I don't have mission cards. I'm sure there's a PDF somewhere.

The difference in numbers between 1500 points of Space Wolves and 1,000 points of Orks is instructive.

Re: WH40k Second Edition Tournament

Chirstian,

The tournament is 3 games for each player, with 3 lists. You make a 500 point list, a 750 point list and a 1000 point list. SO only bring 1000 points, Thats what we are all bringing! Then we just track how well we do in each of the 3 games, the winner being the one with the most wins, if we draw well its a draw!

Ill contact you on messenger or email too just in case you dont read this!

Tytus and James, awesome looking armies!

Re: WH40k Second Edition Tournament

Unfortunately I can't make it to BOYL anymore :( I'm very disappointed but hope to make it in 2020 instead. I really hope everyone enjoys their 2nd games and that some of them appear here as battle reports. I'll keep an eye on Facebook for photos of all the fun.
