    Based on posts from local forums, I believe there are a couple of openings for this coming weekend. I would check the website or contact the TO to find out if there are still spaces available.
  6. Let's Chat: Nighthaunt

    Kind of a question dump, so I apologize if these have been addresses or discussed already somewhere in this thread or elsewhere. 1. Since the Knight of Shrouds is not in the Legions of Nagash Battletome, how does he work with any of the new legions? It can be the general based on the Harbinger rules, but I do not believe it can use any of the artifacts or command abilities since it cannot be assigned the appropriate Legion keyword. 2. If playing a Nighthaunt faction list with the new ethereal rule, is the Cloaked in Shadow command trait (+1 general's save) useless? (Credit Neck-Romantic for asking the question first) 3. As of right now, the Knight of Shrouds does not count for the Ethereal Rulers Battle Trait. Correct?

Conversions/proxies must be recognizable for units they are representing.

Otherwise I will continue opening the scope up until someone can win this award. Best Terrain – Based on number of favorite terrain votes by players – Tiebreaker determined by event organizer Strength of Schedule – Best finish based on strength of schedule calculation Sigmar Hardmode AKA the “Special Snowflake” Award – The player and army that best embodies the Guys from Milwaukee mindset of a unique and unusual army with at least a 3-2 finish. This will be selected by a secret cabal of voters, bribery will not work, only exemplary displays of generalship with unique and unusual armies. Get to 3-2 and you have a shot. (Blood)Thirstiest – Most kill points Wooden Spoon – Last place – Also receives free entry to event in next year 1. Measure base to base, and bases should never overlap. 2. Measure vertically by measuring the volume between two models, usually from one model’s base to another’s head (but don’t measure to limbs, wings, weapons, banners, and so on). 3. Models that can’t be attacked or targeted are unable to score or contest objectives, until they can be targeted (e.g., Changeling). 4. Only one of each command model per unit (e.g., champion, standard, musician), unless the warscroll states otherwise. 5. Players may not summon a Balewind Vortex within range of an objective. If over the course of the game it comes to be in range, players must move the Balewind outside the closest objective edge (i.e., it can’t be used to claim, deny, or contest objectives). 6. Sylvaneth Wyldwoods must be the exact size of GW’s Citadel Wood bases, including the holes for trees. Players must also have trees, but may remove them temporarily to simplify measuring. 7. GW clarified models are allowed to climb up and down any type of scenery. However, to avoid awkward model placement and simplify gameplay, models cannot end their move at the top of Citadel Wood trees – they must end their move on the ground. At the same time, you can lean model bases up against the base of Citadel Wood trees, as long as the model stays upright.
  12. Brewcity Brawl has posted some new information about secondaries for the tournament: No rivals to the king: Your army’s general must be the only leader model left alive in your army at the end of the final battle round. You score 5 points if your general is the only leader model left alive from your army. You score 10 points if your general is the only leader model left alive from your army and you lost at least 3 other leader models. Your land is my land: Select a single piece of terrain outside of your deployment zone. If you control this piece of terrain at the end of the final battle round, you score 5 points. You control a terrain feature by having more models on or within 6” of the piece of terrain than your opponent. You score 10 points if instead you have at least one model on or within 6” of the piece of terrain and there are no enemy models with 12”. Cut off the head of the snake: You score 5 points if you kill your opponent’s general (it is removed from play and does not return). You score 10 points if your general personally kills your opponent’s general (it is removed from play and does not return) and survives the game themselves. Total carnage: You score 5 points if you finish with more kill points than your opponent. You score 10 points if you finish with more than twice as many kill points as your opponent. Shut it down: You score 5 points if you dispel at least 3 of your opponent’s spells during a single game. You score 10 points if you dispel 6 or more. Break their back: You score 5 points if you completely destroy all of your opponent’s Battleline units. You score 10 points instead if you destroy all of your opponent’s Battleline units and they started the game with 5 or more Battleline units. Take away their toys: You score 5 points if you destroy the enemy unit with the highest point cost. If multiple units are tied for highest point cost, you may choose one. You score 10 points if that highest point costed unit started the game with 40 or more wounds. The bigger they are, the harder they fall: You score 5 points if you kill all of your opponent’s Behemoth units or units with the MONSTER keyword. You score 10 points instead of your opponent started with 3 or more Behemoth units or units with the MONSTER keyword. Linebreaker: You score 5 points if you have more units wholly within your opponent’s deployment zone than they have at the end of the final battle round. You score 10 points if you have at least one unit wholly within your opponent’s deployment zone and they don’t have any. Running away, eh?: You score 5 points if you move at least one unit worth more than 100 points off a table edge in your opponent’s deployment zone. You score 10 points if you can move off before turn 4. Only units that were deployed on the table at the start of the game and did not leave the table over the course of the way(not in the Celestial Realm, Summoned, etc.) can complete this objective. Showing up your boss: Pick one of your Leader models that is not your general. You score 5 points if the model scores more Kill Points than your General and survives. You score 10 points instead if this models scores more than you General and your General didn’t inflict any Kill points and survives. Someone brought their brown pants: You score 5 points if you cause at least 3 different enemy units to fail a Battleshock test (i.e. lose at least 1 model due to a Battleshock roll). You score 10 points if you cause at least 6 units to fail BrewCity Secondaries.docx

  14. Any US AoS Facebook Pages out there?

    There are a ton of them. Are you looking for those based on a region of the country, a specific army or faction, competitive vs. narrative?
  15. What are your 2018 Objectives?

    When it comes to the hobby, I only have three real goals for 2018. Paint a 1000 points of AoS to a table-top standard for the Adepticon Team Tournament Make my way back to the UK and play at another AGoM Attend Lodgecon, Adepticon, BrewCity Brawl, Siegeworld, GenCon and Michigan GT in the US. I hope to continue to make progress on another army over the course of the year, but that is the goal every year, so not really specific to the next one.
