Are we using all the rules for regiments of renown or just the ones you have listed?

Either way, I'm in with Bretonnians. I am getting my eyes lasered on the Monday of that week and theres supposed to be a fairly long recovery time for the type of surgery that I'm having so I may not be able to see too much. Maybe I'll bring some comically oversized dice.

Color me confounded. At only 100 pts per regiment really limits ogre type players and are we still playing 2500pts? Need some clarifying on points please

It is basically a skirmish game with only 100 points total. Your models act as individuals and are not combined into units. For example, my bretonnian force is:

A questing knight, 2 knights errant, a mounted yeoman and 3 men at arms for a total of 99 points.

Dwarfs can make some pretty effective lists too if you are finding ogres too restrictive.

Don't worry Nathan, I'll tell you what you rolled. Wink

And Andre, where the heck have you been?

April 20th? I should be free from that as I'm out of exams. I'll likely be bringing orcs.

BTW, for anyone who wants a bit more context, the rules are posted on the Warhammer World facebook page. There's also a copy on the GW site somewhere, but the Warhammer World ones were updated to remove magic from the game (otherwise including 3-4 horrors is ridiculous).

Here's the link:

Exactly, thanks for linking the new rules. I agree magic will unbalance things too far. So please follow the rules in teh book, and find three example armies in teh back of the handout. If you cant get a copy message me and I will print one out for you. I will also leave a copy at the den.

Here's a question that I have, in my regiment I want to give a knight errant the regimental musician veteran kit. Can I use the questing knight musician (the guy with the guitar) to represent this? I love the character that the model has but if it is going to cause confusion then I'll use a standard knight errant model.

I have no objection to that idea, it works great for me.

Ogres have only 5 different "armies" they can build:
3 Ogres, 1 Gnoblar
1 Irongut, 1 Ogre, 1 Sabretusk, 1 Gnoblar
2 Ogres, 1 Sabretusk, 1 Gnoblar
1 Irongut, 2 Sabretusks, 1 Gnoblar
1 Ogre, 2 Sabretusks, 1 Gnoblar

They can get a leadbelcher in there can't they? It probably wouldn't be a very effective build but it should be possible. Unless there's something I'm missing.

You are missing the following:
A maximum of 25% the models in your Regiment may be armed with ranged weapons of any kind (round all fractions down). So a
Regiment of eight models can have up to two models with ranged weapons and a Regiment of 9 models can have up to two models with
ranged weapons.

So you need 4 models total before you can take a single model armed with a missile weapon.

Gnoblars throw "sharp stuff," so they can't be used to fill out your numbers.

Those are literally the only 5 Ogre combinations.

Oh, I didn't realize gnoblars had a shooting attack, that's too bad. Still, all those combinations seem pretty solid.

Hmm. That's a pain that the Masters is the same day as GROTS-Con.

It is too bad but I know I can't justify driving to Red Deer for a one-day tournament and re-reading the GROTS-Con thread it seems as though the dates have changed multiple times so its kinda difficult to plan around that anyway.

Hey Geoff, how many games are we going to get in this tourney? Seems as though games will be pretty quick, like under an hour.

So my thoughts on this regiments game now that I read through the rules has drastically changed. We are going to have a bunch of solitary figs running around the table taking away the balance of warhammer, and the fundamental tactics of why we play the game. As a conversational piece or for fun to see what my solitary fig against yours would do or a friday night throwdown sure but as a tournament and a masters series yet on an untested (in our league) game type? I am formally protesting this event but all who are going enjoy the game.

Seriously? You're entitled to your opinion Andre but I think it will be a fun change of pace. I've always been interested in Killteam for 40K and this seems like it is as close as you can get with Warhammer Fantasy. It uses the same rules that we all know and since it uses 3-20 models it is incredibly accessible for new players to pick up and learn some of the fundamentals of warhammer. I think that this tournament will be an incredible opportunity to gain interest and potentially add some new people to the league. Also, since the games go so quick (like 30 minutes) casual observers will see more than just part of 1 phase of a 6-turn game. They'll be able to see an entire turn or two which will make the game more appealing than watching someone move his units for 5 minutes.

I don't see Regiments of Renown games becoming too commonplace in our league but I think this tournament will be fun AND its an excellent opportunity to really dig into the creative side of the hobby and create some interesting conversions and characterful minis that you probably wouldn't otherwise. I can see your dwarf regiment with all your amusingly-named characters now! I hope you reconsider, a tournament just isn't the same without you.

Hm, I actually share Andre's thoughts. I'm such a baby when it comes to traditional Warhammer.

I don't feel strongly enough to protest or not go, as I'm sure it'll be fun, but I DID think to myself. "Why not just play games of Warhammer?"

I still feel we should go forward with it as my tune might change, and my eyes may open to a larger world. C'mon Andre, you're missing too much as it is. The council may have a meeting and talk about your membership status. Wink

Well, I'm going to be looking to play a game or two of it this weekend. Hopefully there will be some like-minded people at Carson's who also want to give the system a shot.

On the bright side, the games should go quick so they'll be ideal for those idle times between games of actual warhammer.
