Re: NHSD: SoCal Slaughter! 2016

Okay, I've nailed everyone on my side down and updated the top post. Short answer is, looks like the same crew as last time: 6 of us.

We've been doing a few practice games on our side already to get ready. I have primary armies nailed down for 5 of the 6 of us, but only one backup army locked in so far. Will keep working on it throughout the weekend.

Excellent. My recollection is that you have a pretty extensive collection, right?

Yep, I'll work on that this weekend. Looks like we have 8 definite so far, and another 2 (hivelord and pop) as fairly firm. That's 5 maps minimum and safer to do six, I'd say. So I'll see what I can work out with that in mind.

Well, as I said above, we're not 100% nailed down yet, so I don't have a final final list. Here's what we brought last time--I've marked off the units that I'm pretty sure we won't see again, but it's almost definitely not complete yet. (OTOH, the ones that aren't marked off in this list are fairly definite to be showing up this year.)
Spoiler Alert!

I'll get things locked down ASAP and post a revised list once they are.

Looking forward to it! This may be the first year in a while that our number have gone up instead of down. I shall choose to view that as a major sign of optimism.

Re: NHSD: SoCal Slaughter! 2016

My collection is alright. I could make a third map if it comes to it. I think I've done four at once for a tourney before but that's streatching it very thin.

I just checked. It looks like the last NHSD I made it to was in 2011! I can't believe I've missed four in a row!! I'll be incredibly rusty next week but boy am I excited.

There's no way we'll need that many. I'll probably come up with 6 or 7 maps, which is already more than we need, and we already have 4 people volunteering to bring 2 each.

I've got the spreadsheet out and I've filled in which maps we've used for the past 3 years, which is apparently as far back as we've been recording which maps we built. Anyhow, I'm playing around with the list now to try to a) get some variety, but b) still stick with the maps we know are good and avoid those which are evil (I'm looking at you, Ember Canyon Road! ).

So I don't foresee any issues getting all the maps we need. Also, I apparently actually have a list of what terrain you own, hivelord. Also you, wnfb. @Leotheanimal87 , I don't have your stats: if you know, off the top of your head, roughly how many of what terrain you have, I'll pop you into the spreadsheet too.

I also nailed down that final primary army, so I can work on my VC list as well. Hopefully I get the backup army info I need by tomorrow.

Yeah, I noticed that too ... while I was trying to see how far back I could go with map info, I got to the 2012 thread and saw your post that you wouldn't be able to make it that year. Little did you know it would be another 4 years before you'd make it back, eh?

BTW, if you and the pop are definites, I'll go ahead and update the top post with that info. I'll also look around and see who else I can notify.

Well, perhaps I spoke too soon. Turns out my data on how many sets you guys have is from 2009. Soooo ... two questions for you, @warriorneedsfoodbadly and @hivelord :
  • Do either of you have any BftU (dungeon) sets, and, if so, how many?
  • Is it true that you, hivelord, have only 1 RotV (original) master set?

I've gone back through all the maps and picked out 7 primaries and 5 alternates that I'm pretty happy with. So, once I get the info on what you guys have, I can tell you what to bring, and we should be solid.

(Fun side note: in 2009, I have in the spreadsheet that we brought FIFTEEN maps, plus 4 duplicates in case some people had to drop out at the last minute. Total mapmakers: 10.)

Re: NHSD: SoCal Slaughter! 2016

You can go ahead and mark me and pop as confirmed.

Going completely from memory because I haven't dug my sets out of storage yet, I should have 2RotV, 2SotM, 2 BftU, 2castles, and 1 of each other terrain set. (I still regret not getting more RttFF)

I believe I have only 2 dungeon sets.
Great news, hivelord.

Wacky ... I had you down as having 3 RttFF (and 2 TT, FTM). But having 2 RotV is the main thing. And, in this crop of maps, having only 1 TJ is the major deficiency. Everybody wants to put jungle on their maps these days. But I can make it work, no worries.

As long as you have one, we're solid.

Okay, I'll crunch the numbers and just try to assign something light to Leo. I may even be able to assign duplicates in case of emergency. I'm going to try to sneak in one last game with the Smaller Animal before he's off to the mountains for most of the week, but I should have maps up by tonight at the latest. If the gaming gods are good to me, Quillon will finish nailing down backup armies at his regular gaming day today and I'll be able to post my VC list tonight as well. Cross your fingers.

Re: NHSD: SoCal Slaughter! 2016

Okay, proposed map assignments are ready. Remember: if something doesn't work for you, feel free to bring it up and let's talk about it. But silence means assent.


Here's my review of all BoV maps from year before last, which I did not update at all last year:
Spoiler Alert!


This year, I have re-reviewed all maps and come up with new opinions. Some are the same; some are different.
Spoiler Alert!


Here's what we ended up with year before last:
Spoiler Alert!


And here's what we ended up with last year:
Spoiler Alert!


Still no new BoV maps (second year in a row).


At the end of all that, here's my list of potential maps for this year, in order of my preference:
For sure:
  1. Ticalla Sunrise
  2. Draugur
  3. Invasion
  4. Hot Heights
  5. Swamp Thing
  6. Elswin Plateau
  7. Arctic Divide
Maybe:
  1. Quasatch Playground
  2. Sirocco
  3. Ice Blossom
  4. Highways and Dieways
  5. Flash Fire


After plugging all that into the spreadsheet, along with what I think you guys have in terms of terrain sets, here's what came out the other end:
  1. Ticalla Sunrise - Xotli
  2. Draugur - wnfb
  3. Invasion - Leo
  4. Hot Heights - wnfb
  5. Swamp Thing - hivelord
  6. Elswin Plateau - hivelord
  7. Arctic Divide - Leo
  8. Quasatch Playground - wnfb
  9. Sirocco - Xotli


That's 9 maps, which should be plenty even if someone can't make it at the last minute or doesn't have enough terrain or whatever. Here's total requirements for everyone:
  • @hivelord - 2 RotV, 1 SotM, 1 RttFF, 1 FotA, 1 TJ
  • @Leotheanimal87 - 1 RotV, 1 SotM 1 FotA, 1 TT, 1 TJ
  • @warriorneedsfoodbadly - 2 RotV, 1 BftU, 1 VW, 2 TT, 2 TJ
  • Xotli - 1 SotM, 2 BftU, 2 TJ
(Full disclosure: I am shamelessly using my position as the person who worked all this out to bring a) the map that is currently sitting on my dining room table, and b) one of the same maps I brought last year which is still packed up in a box in my room because I'm a lazy bastard and I never unpacked it over the past YEAR. )

So please let me know ASAP if I've overestimated anyone's collection. But I'm pretty sure about everybody but Leo, and he only needs one of everything. Leo, I know you have the SotM and the FotA from what you built 2 years ago. So you just need to verify that you have an RotV (original), a TT (tundra), and a TJ (jungle). If you don't have an RotV, I can swap some stuff around pretty easily and then you'd need 2 TTs and a TJ. If you don't have any TTs and/or a TJ ... then I need to radically rejigger.

Looking good, people! Getting excited now ...
