masters season 5 round 1 (Formerly round four, now round five.)

Post  Carson on Sun Dec 14, 2014 4:24 pm

I'm happy to announce the start of another masters season.
For those new to the league I'll give a brief run down of what the masters are. Basically it is a series of 4 linked tournaments where players accumulate "masters" points for each tournament. At the end of the season the player with the highest masters score wins a great trophy and a gift certificate for 160$

Masters points are accumulated by

1 point for each tournament game played
1 point for each tournament game win
2 points for each title, ie overall, beast painted etc.

past winners are
Geoff Klassen 2010
Zach 2011
Carson gallant 2012
Nathan Rinholm 2013

and now to round 1

Jan.17 Dragons Den
2500pts, 3 rounds
30$ entry fee
9am start
scenarios are battle line. meeting engagement, blood and glory

****end times army lists are welcome but special characters from those lists are prohibited*****

prizes awarded for overall champion, best general, best painted

now to scoring
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 triples of any unit.
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 missle units

Please sign up here with your name and intended army.

I'll do some Orc action. Don't think I'll worry too much about army comp and stuff. Looking forward to getting the stuff for my nurgle army at least in my hands so I can play them.

How do you score metal movement trays for this category? Do they need to be painted to get the points?

My High Elf army maxes out the composition score and depending on your answer to the above question I think I'm sitting with a 12 for painting as long as you're feeling generous with the "extra work has gone into..." category Smile. If I can manage a display board between now and then I might be able to max out both categories!

If any out-of-towners feel like driving up on the Friday I can provide beds for 3 and a couch for a 4th.

I'd say that if you can see the metal then it should be painted. If its flush with the bases then its cool.

No, you can play in any of them and your scores will count, of course the more you play in the better your chances.

Less than a week until the tournament, can't wait for it. There are four spots left so get your sign-ups in quick.

Ok so i am not sure if i can make 2500 points and most of my army is only primed i will definitely need to substitute something fo a couple. Trebuchets. My men at arms dont have there shield arms affixed. I am still trying to get movment trays. But i will. Show up and you can decide if i get to play it would be my very first game. I got everything just before Christmas and i have been working tirelessly on my bretonnians. I am not going to win any categories i just wanted to have fun i will bring what I have got and if need be just observe and hopefully make some friends. Mabie i will bring my chessboard too. I won't lie i am hopeful but also realistic. See you on the 17th

I should mention that there's a planned Sabarosa supper after the event. Anyone else interested, let me know so I can head count a reservation.

ALSO, Frank is coming to the event and needs 12 Flamers if anyone has any laying around (or for sale).
