OFFICIAL Gen Con HeroScape Events 2012

Well, I'm tired of waiting. I really wanted to wait until the events were approved before I posted them here, but you guys have waited way longer than I think you should have, so I apologize for that. My understanding is they are behind this year for some reason (not sure why). Please understand these are all tentative as they have not yet been approved. Also remember that I am not looking for ways to change these for this year. I will have a thread up after Gen Con asking for opinions and such then on the events. Anyway here they are -

Re: TENTATIVE Gen Con HeroScape Events 2012

Sweet! Thanks for getting this up!

I need to get Hail and Brimstone Morazz v4 done so it may be included in the map pool.

EDIT: I also need to find a teammate for the Team Tournament. Could you explain a little bit better how turns will work? Will we each control part of the 550 point army, or just take turns with which of the 550 point army we want?

It's Texas style.

You and your teammate will have 550 points total. You cannot have more or less than 50 points than your teammate has - for example - You - 300, he 250 is OK. You 400, he 150 is not OK.

You will in essence have 2 armies in the 550 point army. Each with their own OMs.

Re: TENTATIVE Gen Con HeroScape Events 2012

Thanks MM. Looks like a ton of fun. Kudos to you and your crew. For the team match I assume that 'cannot have the same figures' extends to commons, so both teammates can not run Stingers. Thanks again. Kids event is brilliant! Catch the fever while you are young. Fog of War is also very cool.

Re: TENTATIVE Gen Con HeroScape Events 2012

Nice mix. Good work Matthias, et al. I like the rules tweaks on Monster Mash and Heat of Battle.

I assume "pick your poison" means your opponent picks which of the 4 armies of yours you get to use? Would this be double blind (e.g. both people reveal an OM for the other player's army, with X=4)?

It would be awesome if somebody has to drop the Kid's Tournament because they made day 2.
