ToonCon Tournament

Post  Carson on Sun Jun 29, 2014 8:09 pm

Ok, Looks Like I volunteered to run it this year. Fantasy is scheduled for Saturday Sept.20, the ToonCon site still lists last years info but will be updated soon.

I'm going to run a very similar format as the last masters event. I'm hoping that we can fill the 16 spots allotted to us. As a side note, Al has indicated that entrance to the event is 10$. To accommodate this and still provide excellent prizes I will increase the cost of tournament entrance to 30. This will cover the 20$ entrance fee for the tournament plus the 10$ kickback to the ToonCon event.

Here are the details

Saturday Sept.20
9am start
3 rounds, 3000pts
scenarios are straight battleline scenarios from the book
prizes awarded for overall champion, Best General, Painting, and lots of door prizes

Tournament scoring
75 possible points......battle points 45, soft scores 30 (painting and army design)

battle points scoring......crushing victory  15-6, victory 11-7, tie 9-9

Soft scores
Painting is scored by a checklist that I will use to rate each army. The hope is to have it designed in a way to enable the novice painter to still score relatively high along as he has placed some basic effort into the army he brings. Additionally, as well as scoring high on the checklist, the skilled painter will have the chance to win the coveted best painter award.

army design is scored by another checklist. Players are of course free to bring whatever they want in their army.

Hopefully the following checklists are self explanatory:

Painting......
Each category worth 2 points, 1 bonus point awarded to the best painted army.

1. The army is based and at least sprayed with a base coat
2.  Movement Trays built and painted or sprayed for the army
3. All unit command models are discernible and assembled appropriately. *****This will be strictly enforced*****
4. display board built for the army
5. entire army is  painted
6. Extra work has gone into highlighting, washes, blending on the entire army
7. The army features a number of conversions

Army design.......
Each category worth 2 points, 1 bonus point for the highest scored army
1. Did the player spend no more than 250pts on magic items
2. has the player spent no more than  900 points on characters
3. do non flying characters out-number those that do ( this includes characters on flying mounts)
4. Has the player refrained from taking double monster  or unique choices.
5. are there 6 or less magic levels in the army (this includes unit magic levels)
6. are there at least 3 ranked units in the army
7. do combat units outnumber missile units

Even with the silly army design comp - I'll be there!  Wink 

Is it ok if I start my normal bitching and whining about army comp rules?

That's good to hear Andre, it's always important to find that work/life/Warhammer balance.

I had a long look through my wood elf stuff last night after everyone left and I'm not sure there is any way that I'll be able to turn it into a tournament-worthy 3000 point army in time for ToonCon. I'm going to give it a shot but if I don't succeed I'll have a backup army waiting to go. Probably High Elves, I haven't taken them for a run recently.

Carson, can you edit the thread title to include the date of the event?

That's great news. You and hippy Andre should hang out more often.

Is this just 3000 points or are we using Grand Army rules?

I like that Carson, Grand Army composition rules just lead to ridiculousness.
