Re: Dallas Area "Official" Tournament structure

Doesn't sound like there's many strong opinions so I'm going to run the "Reverse the Whip" scenario I mentioned earlier.

4-round format.

You play your own army for Round 1 and Round 4. You play your opponent's army for Rounds 2 and 3.

Armies are 415 points. You may apply bonus points to your army as follows:
  • +5 points: No army cards have any bonding ability.
  • +10 points: All army cards are of the same General. (Valkrill = Utgar)
  • +10 points: No army card is repeated more than twice in your army.
  • +15 points: No army cards have a base Range greater than 1 or a Special Attack whose range is greater than 1.

Maps and glyphs TBD but since it's a wacky tournament, expect something wacky.

My new FLGS in Grapevine is set up for big 30-man warhammer tournies so I'll talk to them this week about hosting. If that falls through I'll check with Madness.

I'll post a new thread once I have the date and location locked down. Looking at early June.

So given these parameters, these armies could be fielded:

2x Fen Hydra
2x Deathreavers
Ornak
Marcu Esenwein
Isamu
450pts

No bonding (Red Flag of Fury does not use the term "Bonding" in its name or description); all Utgar; no more than 2 cards of same type; all base range 1 with no special attack = 455 pts (5 pts to spare)

2x 4th Mass
2x Sentinels
Concan
440 pts

No bonding; all Jandar ; no more than 2 army cards of same type = 440 pts.

Not that the above armies are totally awesome or anything; just clarifying the bonuses with examples.

A must read for all 'Scapers!

It's been nearly 2 months since we've heard anything about this. Is it still happening?

Any news on this front, Velenne. I've missed the last few tourneys around here, and I'm jonesing to play in a tournament environment, and soon.

So, get on the ball, man!

Sure, rym. You'll just have a marathon or a student teacher ice cream social that'll take precedence.

And we'll all pretend to "understand"

How did you know? So long as a tournament is not scheduled for this Thursday, we should be golden. And June sounds good to me.

Re: Dallas Area "Official" Tournament structure

We are a go for a summer tourney, June 25th, noon-til-it's-over, at Area 51 Games in Grapevine. We'll use the format below barring any gamebreaking objections. Food and prize support included, $10 per person. I'll post the thread when I'm not on my phone.
