The norm for LW is 1420 this year. This tournament was planned long before that point level was announced plus Lance can do whatever he wants as he is the tournament organizer. 1775 gives you way more toys to play with.

I am still in negotiations with this one. My wife's birthday is the Thursday before so she probably has veto rights on that weekend.

That doesnt even make sense Nathan, Price is Right Rules brah, she gets any weekend up to her birthday without going over. EVERY married guy knows that , jeez kid.

On that note, do the armies have to be painted? Because i might have the rest of my army in time. Just not painted... maybe base coated ....

RULES AND REGULATIONS

• All armies must be fully base coated. Any miniatures not base coated painted will be pulled from the table prior to starting the tournament.

• Rounds will be determined by Swiss system come ready to play all armies

• Missions will be selected randomly immediately before each round, any mission will only be played once in the tournament. Exception to this is Seize and Hold (Found in the Normandy Battles Book). Air Landing lists may Seize and Hold for all 5 missions if they pay for Gliders and Paratrooper and other Glider lists may announce the night before or at Registration that each morning mission they will do a Seize and Hold Mission.

• Players are responsible for monitoring the time and the judges will announce time intervals throughout the tournament. A true act of sportsmanship is not starting a new turn if both players will not be able to finish that turn. The game should be called if both players cannot finish their turn and the results should be calculated.

• Slow play is to be actively discouraged, repeated offenses may result in loss of points or forfeited matches.  This is a Regionals competition, if you cannot play a game to completion due to size/compliment or familiarity with your army, you might want to revisit your choice.  Most players should be able to complete their turns within 10-15 minutes.

• When time is called the game must immediately end regardless of the action taking place in the game. New turns cannot be started even if starting a new turn would award an immediate victory or cause a player to make a company morale check.

• If two fortified companies face each other then they will play the No Man's Land Mission.

• Unit histories are not necessary.

• Army lists must be submitted to cigamnogard@sasktel.net (Third Party army list creation sites (i.e., Easy Army, Army Builder) may be used as well as the generic army list excel spreadsheet located on the Flames of War website.  All lists must include the following information:
o Player's full name
o Player's email address
o Club name (if applicable)
o Army list being used (For example: Cossack)
o Book or website reference (For example: Overlord)
o Type of company (Tank, mechanized, infantry)

haha, while that is a TEMPTING offer Don, I will stay put for now. Perhaps I'll need to take you up on it sometime if a future negotiation doesn't go as well.

As for this round of negotiations, I think I managed to steer everything in the right direction and I am very happy with how everything worked out. I will be attending this tournament guilt-trip free and with my wife's blessing. I am all paid up and my list has been e-mailed along with my t-shirt size. Looking forward to it!

Carson, are you going to this? If so we should carpool down to Don's Friday afternoon/evening.

Also, Lance did you still want me to bring terrain for this? I definitely can but I won't be there for the table set-up day on Friday.

Well Lance, you pulled off another good tournament. I had a great time being in the low/middle of the pack, I enjoy myself a lot more when I'm playing with nothing on the line. Honestly, I'd 100% rather play a game that ends in a 4-3 victory or loss than a 6-1 win.

Only complaint from me is that you guys didn't stick to the timeline. If people aren't done rolling dice when time is called, too bad. Even if it's the two guys playing for the tournament win, tell them to pack it up anyway. If they lose the tournament because of it, all the better. Everyone knew they had 2 hours to play and it is their responsibility to play accordingly. My opponent and I ended my last 2 games before they were done because we were at the time limit. Then we stood around for 20 minutes to an hour while the rest of the games continued. In both cases had we continued the result of the game could have been completely different.
