Events UK: BLACKOUT - 02-03/09/17 - Firestorm Games - PDF pack

Yeah loved that formation used it a lot last year.  Weirdly the Elf-Aelf is covered in an FAQ so is fine.  The problem with it is the Har Geth Executioners which no longer exist.  Another part of the FAQ specifically disallows formations with that issue :(  Hopefully Saturday they might update and fix that one

Oh I hadn't realised that, thanks for the info! Fingers crossed then but I won't hold my breath, not expecting anything bar a pdf with points..

Would need new underwear if they renewed the Black Orc Big mob. 

 

Bojangles the Gargant has seen the light of day for just over a year now.....

Command Traits and Artefacts must be listed and will not change for the duration of the event.

How about Prays and spells , do these also have to be fixed like the Traits and Artefacts for the weekend?

All are normally decided before the game or on deployment.

Hey,

Just in case anyone is in need of sorting some last minute accommodation I have a bed going spare at Travelodge Central. £63 for the weekend - sharing with Donal Taylor and myself.

Quick question for @Chris Tomlin -

I've just discovered that Pink Horrors should be on 32mm bases. Mine must have been old kits, because they came with 25mm rounds. I'm a pretty casual player so I'd never noticed.

I've got a to-do list ahead of Saturday as it is, so would it be acceptable for me to use some 25mm-to-32mm adapters? If not, I'll scramble to get the models rebased.

Hey guys,

Whilst all the info is available in this thread (and collected in the first post), I thought it best to still put it together as a PDF for anyone wanting to download to their phones etc;

http://traffic.libsyn.com/theblacksun/BLACKOUT_2017.pdf

I haven't had a chance to read this thread or any new posts within it (I do not visit TGA on the weekends), but will do so tomorrow morning and will reply then. If urgent please Tweet me (@the_black_sun).

Cheers guys, can't wait to see you all very soon!!!

Chris

James Eveleigh, eh? Be gentle, it's my first time!

James is a perfect first tournament opponent tbh, he's one of my local guys who only started tournaments himself a year or so ago and has really enjoyed them even as more of a casual player beforehand. Plonk a cider in front of him and you'll have an instant friend!

This is a great price! If anyone wants to grab the room and jump into the event last minute I will accept a late entry.

Adapters are fine mate. Appreciate you acknowledging and addressing the size difference.

Pop them on your list please Dan. Just saves a bit of time from game to game...there will be plenty of new stuff to discuss pre game as it is.

Can alternate non gw models be used? If they are appropriate size / look etc?

Yeh mate, totally fine. If unsure drop me a message with a pic please.

Hi Chris, looking forward to the weekend!

I have seen it said on the site that Sylvaneth special character Drycha can choose her missile weapon before each game, Flitterfuries or Squirmlings because, I think, the Warscrolls allows you to use either.  Do you think this is OK for Blackout? Sounds great to a Sylvaneth player like me tbh, so worth checking out. 

Fun will be had whatever!

Hi @Ian R,

Thanks for your question.

Having looked at the scroll I think this would be a fixed option for the event unfortunately. I appreciate this may be up for debate, but at BLACKOUT if you could select and stick to one option that'd be great thanks. Sorry it's not the answer you would've been looking for...she's great regardless though (I'm sure you've seen her FAQ) :) 

Cheers,
Chris

Thanks, I'll let you know :)
Timing permitting, I'll make some custom ones on 32mm bases, but if I run out of time, I'll take you up on your kind offer!

Just checking in - packing for the event now. Do you need those spare objective markers? I've got them if so!

Got mine built in time in the end, but thanks so much! See you tomorrow!
