idea for an event to kick off a new league

Post  Carson on Sun Jan 08, 2017 2:14 pm

The current league is ending on Jan.15, I thought it might be a good idea to have an event to kick off the new league and showcase the game to those interested.....maybe drum up some new players?

We haven't had a mega battle in ages and I thought that this would be a great spectacle. If our community thinks this is a good idea we would need to pick a date, armies involved (I know there was some talk of Dwarfs against O&G), and format.

I thought we could have Darren advertise well in advance to maybe get some interest.

thoughts?

Sounds like a great idea.

I could lend lots of orcs & goblins to the fight if we opt for O&G vs Dwarfs.

One suggestion I have is since this might end up being a showcase type game, I think we should try for painted models only. I'm sure we can gather enough for lots of points even with this restriction, and it really helps the allure of the game when all the minis are painted and based.

Yeah, that's what we'll plan for. I'm sure we have enough toys to spread them around to those involved so we can only field painted army's.

I guess we'll consider anyone who joins in this thread to be "signed" up. Once we pick a date, and teams, we'll get further into the planning.

I'm in but don't have O&G nor Dwarves so might need a loaner army.

What's the timeline on this? I could maybe work on some terrain for it if there's time. I've got some styrofoam insulation and the rest of that fortress set that I got from Carson. I could make some kind of Dwarfish terrain to go along with that stuff that's at the den from the last megabattle we had.

I am going to be busy for most of February, taking a vacation and have lots of school stuff. Sometime in March, maybe early march would work for me best.

So, how does this work?

How many points per side?

we will get more concrete in terms of format once we have a date nailed down.

Right now I'm figuring 5000pts per player, the combined army general will be a "special character" with some added benefit/stats. We have 8 signed up in this thread so far.

I have a painted Thorgrim Grudgebearer on the throne if we want to use that for the dwarf king.

Ok, because my only thought is Painted stuff. So we might need to pin down points before we pin down participants, i probably have like 2000 points of mostly painted O&G stuff and maybe the same in Dwarves. So yes i'm signing up. untill the point value is set to 5000 each, then i am un signing up as i do not have 5000 points of painted... understand what i mean? (and yes i understand "the event is far away Sean you have lots of time to paint" Fuck off i'm working on it lol) Totally agreeing that things should be painted for this, but i think we just need a tally of how much for each side we have painted.

Minis in a mega battle have to be painted. If you don't have 5000 points it's not a big deal. Since each side is coming from the same book we could make one big army and use the grand army rules for each. Each side could see what models they have to choose from and make an army list together and then divide up the units or table sections as needed.

Thinking on table space and time constraints, lets set the point values at 20,000 per side using the grand army rules plus a free grand army general......so the number of players per side does not matter.

OK... So largest point per side is team captain. Make new threads post what you have painted and make a list as a group, each side on their own in their own thread? Maybe?
