upcoming Tournament?

Post  Carson on Fri Jun 18, 2010 1:20 pm

Hey all, just listened to a 2 and 1/2 hour podcast on the new 8th edition rules.........awesomness. The game is going to be the best version yet.

So, on a related note how does a tournament in July sound. I'm thinking towards the end of July so that everyone can have a chance to get up to speed on the new rules.

Also, remember that the league will end on July 9. Playoffs to start on the 10th when everyone can grab thier new books.

I'd be down for a tournament in July. Middle to the end of July would be perfect.

I had a look at the rulebook last night and I was pretty impressed. I'm not a big fan of what they did to skirmishers though. No 360 line of sight and fixed formation is the worst idea I've ever heard. Now there is very little advantage to skirmish. I'm going to have to field my dryads and wardancers in much bigger units or not at all. The best rule change in my opinion is for characters riding monstrous cavalry such as pegasi, unicorns and stags. The merged profile will mean that those mounts are actually a bonus and not a liability for the character.

Hee Hee, that's a great idea although I'm sure we'd see a sour face behind the counter.

I'm in for the tourny. First prize should be the rulebook.

If it's an 8th ed tourny I might try to dust off the old boyz for a tussle. I am also booked on July 24th though. I am getting super smashed brothers with my Bro for his Birthday.

I like anything they do to reduce skirmishers. I HATED the conept of massive blocks of infantry being led around by 5-6 guys who really did SFA. I'd like to see them get treated more like they were in the Napoleonic era. More of a nuisance or even something that augmented a unit they were near but that's all. BUt I guess I don't have long to see!
