Dayton, OH Tournament - March 28

Next tournament: http://www.heroscapers.com/community...d.php?p=784148
Previous tournament: http://www.heroscapers.com/community...ad.php?t=21847

When:
March 28th, 12:00pm; the store (and sign-in) opens at 11:00, sign in early and browse!

I am anticipating that rounds will take a full hour each under this army format, with about 10 minutes in between rounds. So with prize distribution, the tournament should be over by about 6:20pm.

Where:
Bookery Fantasy-Games & Toys
13 West Main
Fairborn, OH 45324-4712
www.bookeryfantasy.com
MapQuest here: http://www.mapquest.com/maps?city=Fa...Games+%26+Toys

Cost:
There will be no entry fee. Bring a prize for the prize table if you can (HeroScape-related preferred but not necessary), but don't let the lack of a prize keep you away.

Prizes:
Players will get to pick a single prize from the prize table in order of their ranking (highest first, lowest last).

Some prizes known:
A map pick for the next tournament (subject to my approval)
Ornak, the Utgar Flagbearer
Gladiators and Agents expansion pack

Armies:
500 points apiece. No customs, no Marvelscape units - repainted versions of exclusive figures are fine. No hero costing less than 90 points can be used, and no more than two squads of any type can be in your army. For example, you could not have the Krav Maga Agents, Nakita Agents and a squad of Deathreavers since that would be three squads altogether. There will be 24 starting zone hexes - any figures in excess of 24 cannot be used.

Tournament Scoring:
The tournament will have five rounds of one-on-one games. All players will have a winning/losing score calculated by adding the points they destroyed to their points remaining, if any. Partial scoring (per wound for heroes and per figure for squads) will be used.

OVAH Bonus Points:
The OVAH allows up to 40 bonus points for OVAH Cup standings. Each match you can earn 10 bonus points by being the first to kill a hero, capped at a maximum of 40 points.

Glyphs:
Glyphs will be placed face-down at the beginning of a match, chosen randomly from the following list:
Astrid (+1 attack)
Dagmar (+8 initiative)
Erland (Summoning - limited to your own units only)
Gerda (+1 defense)
Valda (+2 move)

I'm limiting Erland because I'd rather see people bringing up their own fighters than kidnapping weaklings that the opponent needs to protect (Taelord, for example). You're just going to have to work for it. It also makes the victory a trifle less random - a person's whole army can sometimes be destroyed by having one key figure plucked out.

What else:
I will provide dice as well as wound and order markers - feel free to bring your own Valkyrie dice, of course. If you need master set (RotV only) figures to complete your army (for instance, two people normally play with one master set and want to include the same figure), there should be plenty available.

Who:
Definate:
Marduk - of course
Utgarsrage
outforblood + 3
FatherOfJulian + 2
StealthSuitStanley + 3 or 4
Brewster
Shadow Cat

Maybe:
Onion Knight
GreatWhiteWolf
KCU Master 2007
Luckyfingers
southwest ninja + 1
Richard
Tony Arnold
bbearz

Maps
There will be 24 boards (two copies of each map), plus one to be determined by Utgarsrage as a prize from the last tournament.

Re: Dayton, OH Tournament - March 28

Put me down as maybe. I need another tournament to qualify for the OVAH cup.

BTW: These restrictions sound like fun. I'm looking forward to it, thanks for throwing another tournament, Marduk.

Re: Dayton, OH Tournament - March 28

Working this date into my schedule...

Cough_drops and I should be able to attend. The restrictions are interesting. Marduk, twelve map styles should be fine, judging from the last tournament you must invest a lot of time to make this happen. Thanks.

Re: Dayton, OH Tournament - March 28

I'm not available that weekend. Bummer, it likely would've bumped me up from 11th place if I did reasonably well...

Re: Dayton, OH Tournament - March 28

I'm so excited! These restrictions are pretty tricky, though. Hardly any filler units are allowed/practical.

EDIT: Despite this, I've already developed at least two decent armies, and one that's excellent, imho.

Not as much as I'd like to - lots of surprises always seems to crop up as the tournament approaches. Still, I try to make sure I've got a fair amount done a week before the tournament date, and that's been barely enough so far.

Hey, you haven't done so well the last couple - you're going to have to earn the right to face him!

That's partly the point - few if any of the armies you see here will be cookie-cutter copies of what's supposed to be 'the best' at the time. As for the lack of filler units... if you think you can get away with 450 points because the ones you've picked are the best you've got, more power to you. But I suspect the squads will be chosen to act as filler points for most people.
