Awesome cheers mate, be good to have you and your lot down for it!

I might have to run your "tape measure" past Firestorm for approval haha ;) 

I'll update the entrants list after the weekend.

Please add me to the list of entrants (Nicholas Ruesink-Brown). I've just paid. Hoping to lead a decent crew across from the South London Legion.

Morning guys,

I'll get the list updated this week for sure as there have been a few more payments come through. Don't panic if you've paid and are not on the list yet though, I'm just doing it periodically is all :) 

@Kaseliegth - Mark, just to confirm that the entrants list is a paid list only. Still plenty of space left, but get your payment over to avoid disappointment. Would be great to have you there.

Hey Chris, thanks for setting this up. Gonna be my first tournament so I'm super excited!

 

Can we just confirm that this is going to be a 2,000 point tournament? I'm building and painting like crazy to meet the deadline but I want to make sure I'm working on the right units. Thanks!

Hey @Siorra,

That's so awesome it's going to be your first tournament, super exciting! You'll have a blast I'm sure. Are you travelling down with a group or flying solo? Let me know if it's the latter and we'll sort you out with some introductions etc :) 

The Tournament will be 2,000 points for sure. However the General's Handbook 2 is widely rumoured to drop this summer, so we'd be using the points costs listed in there (which could vary slightly from what we have now). But yeh, I suspect you can't go far wrong working on a current 2,000 point list, that's definitely what I'd be doing (and indeed am for some other events this summer).

It's me and 3 others, 2 of which live locally so I should be fine. Looking forward to it!

Afternoon all,

Entrants updated. Currently up to a whopping 76 players! Keep your payments coming.

To confirm there will be no specific day time activities (although of course Firestorm Games will be open if you want to play etc), however in the late afternoon / evening there will be a matched play Skirmish tournament taking place. I will be coordinating on this with @bottle and details will follow.

Cheers,
Chris

Afternoon all,

Just to advise that I will update the entrants list this week.

Will probably look at capping attendance at the start of August, so if you're holding off buying your ticket, please get involved ASAP.

Hey Chris,

Ticket bought, just need to learn how to play AoS now!

Might have missed it but do you have a timetable for the weekend? Just looking at what the start time on the Saturday is likely to be?

Great news @edd-h, be cool to have you along. Seems like forever!!

No timetable as of yet I'm afraid. I suspect you'll need to be there for around 9 at the latest?

Will starting tightening up all the info in the coming weeks. Could really do with that GH2017 dropping sooner rather than later!!

Morning,

I'm aware that I am overdue updating the entrants list so will get this done when I can. If you've sent payment though you don't need to worry.

Hi @robertxtrem - All models need to be fully painted and based. That is, every part of the model appropriately painted (I am loathe to use the frankly antiquated and open to abuse "3 colours" term!!). There will be full details on paint scoring in the pack which I will release at the end of the month. Hanging on as long as possible for GH2017 at present!!

If you have any queries or concerns before then, please feel free to DM me with photos etc.

Now that ghb2 has been announced for August, will this event still be using it regardless of how close the release is to the event? 

I'm just thinking that if the changes mean lists are illegal /don't work then 2 or 3 weeks isn't a long time to sort it out.

People could convert their Skyfires' bows into tiny violins.

It would be a shame if the points came out and then something which is grossly undercosted in old points romps to victory anyway.

Thanks, and I appreciate your point but it would also be a shame if people who have spent months preparing an army for a tournament suddenly find it is unusable or hugely uncompetitive 2 or 3 weeks before the event. 

So either way round I don't think it's an unreasonable question.
