Battle of the Beasts (MAR 15)

Post  Galadros on Mon Feb 10, 2014 11:35 am

Just finished playing in the Cadet Fundraiser Tournament in Edmonton, so I have another to annnounce for you fellows (and/or ladies).

https://www.facebook.com/?ref=logo#!/events/381428778661232/?fref=ts

When:
March 15/2014
Open and Registration: 8:30
First Game: 9:30-12:00
Lunch Break (Provided)
*Mini-Game during Lunch*
Second Game: 1:00-3:30
Third Game: 4:00-6:30
Awards and cleaned up: 7:00

Where:
Strathearn United Church (8510 95 ave. Edmonton, Alberta.)

General Rules:
-Armies must be GW supported (this includes Chaos Dwarfs).
-Armies are to be no larger than 3000 points.
-Armies need to be fully painted, meaning 3 colors and based.
-All models must be WYSIWYG
-Special characters are allowed.
-The tournament organizers reserve the right to kick out anyone who is acting inappropriately.

Best Rule:
Monsters may be taken from any GW supported book (see above) and taken as a mount for a lord. Just pay the points and stay within section percentage requirements.
If you mix undead and living components then if you lose combat you apply the crumbling first and then apply any remaining combat res difference to the break test. Example: A goblin warboss on a zombie dragon with 3 wounds losses combat by 4. The zombie dragon crumbles and then the goblin warboss takes a break test at -1.

What to Bring:
-Army, rule book, army book, dice, templates, measuring tape,
2 objective markers, pen or pencil, and a calculator.

Awards and Prizes:
-A trophy for Best General will be awarded to the player with the most victory points,
as well as an invitation to the Alberta GT.
-A trophy for Best Painted is awarded to the player with the best painted army
as voted on by the players.
-A trophy for Best Sportsman will be awarded to a player as voted on by the players.
-Plus extra prizes, but these are mysterious and secret…

How to Register:
There are only 29 spots available (1 was already awarded at Cry Havoc)
so you need to sign up early in order to ensure a spot.
To sign up simply send $35 to Malorian99@hotmail.com via Interac etransfer, and email your list and any dietary allergies or condition to malorian99@hotmail.com

It should also be noted that there will be draws for extra prizes and the number of entries for this draw is based off how soon you register: First to sign up getting 30 tickets and the last to sign up getting 1.

So, if I am reading this right, and I hope I am, I could take a Daemon Prince riding a Daemon Prince, provided I keep it under 750 points?



Quit giving me excuses to build more daemon princes!

That is correct. Last year we saw such things as Dwarf Lords on dragon, Karl Franz on a Hellpit Abomination, Tomb king on Kholek Suneater, Goblin warboss on Zombie Dragon, etc. It's hilariously fun, and a great opportunity to play with your rarely used toys! Some of you may think that this can become grossly broken, but it doesn't really end up that way. Because it hits grand army composition, you tend either get in on the big monster party, or take advantage of the ability to field  a stupid amount of war machines.

Nope, that is not allowed. Although Storm of Magic and Monstrous Arcanum creatures are permitted, you'd have to strap an elf onto it.

Ah that's okay, I can easily still fit in at least two of what I have in mind at 3000

So, I'm going to play the Ogre Kingdoms for this event. That means I can choose either a slaughtermaster or tyrant to ride a beasty into battle. At my disposal, I have a few monsters that are candidates to be ridden, and I'm looking to you to advise which combo I should take and why.

1-Dragon
2-Frost Phoenix
3-Wyvern
4-Giant
5-Flamespyre phoenix
6-Hellpit Abomination
7-Necrolith Colossus
8-Treeman
9-Griffon

Have at it!

Giant, purely for the comedic value of modelling a tyrant piggy-backing a giant. A hell put abomination would also look very cool and would probably do well gamewise as we'll.

If you're careful with magnetization and pegging, you could still them as all the constituent models, as well.

I'm really torn between the traditional slaan on a stegadon or the sure to be awesome oldblood on a phoenix.
