  2. Hi everyone.  I want to share with you all the details for Blood and Glory 2018. THE BAD DICE GAMING CONVENTION ——BLOOD AND GLORY 2018—— THE ROUND HOUSE, DERBY, UK This is the 6th year we have ran Blood and Glory the event is being turned up to 11! Last year we had a brand new spectacular venue and will be continuing expanding to include not only Age of Sigmar, 40k and Horus Heresy but also a full range of Games Workshop game systems. If you have been a member of this community for a while you will have seen my post about how I feel about Warhammer and TGA.Community, well this is the exact feeling that we will be bringing to Blood and Glory.  This event is set to be the biggest and best Bad Dice event yet. We have an amazing new venue that can hold up to 700 players and we intend to fill it! The Age of Sigmar and 40k Matched Play GT’s are going to be huge but we also have plenty going on for players who prefer Narrative and Open play. Warhammer Achievements is a Age of Sigmar Narrative play event and we are welcoming the Imperial Truth team who are running a Horus Heresy narrative event. So if you want to test your AoS and 40k skills against the best players in the world, see amazing painted models and hang out for a weekend of gaming then grab a ticket before they sell out. Event Information Date: 2/3/4 NOVEMBER 2018 Location: THE ROUNDHOUSE, ROUNDHOUSE ROAD, PRIDE PARK, DERBY, DE24 8JE Systems: Age Of Sigmar, Warhammer 40k, Horus Heresy, Necromunda TICKETS ON SALE NOW AT BLOODANDGLORY.BADDICE.CO.UK Warhammer Age of Sigmar AoS 2 matched play 2000 Points 5 games, 2 day event. Bad Dice Rankings Event Rulespack - TBC Warhammer 40,000 New 40k Rules 5 games, 2 day event. ITC Event Horus Heresy, Warhammer Achievements, Shadespire, Necromunda, Titanicus, Bloodbowl and more details to be released soon. Seminars, specialist games, Painting Contests and lots more to be announced. More information to be revealed in the coming weeks. It’s worth underlining the Bad Dice Team’s aim for this whole event. It goes without saying that we want everyone to leave having had an amazing weekend. We also want to give players new to the tournament scene the chance to jump in without feeling total out of their depth while giving the regulars an event that they will be more than happy to recommend to their friends and can’t wait to attend again the following year. We want to celebrate all areas of the hobby but keep the competitive edge that is part of the fun of tournament gaming. My personal highlight from most of the events I have attended over the years is the social side. The events that stick in the memory are the ones that offer lots for the players to do and keeps them gathered in one place in the evenings. We will make sure that no matter your preference for a tournament evening, we should have something on offer to keep you entertained and having a great time. Between the Bad Dice team, and our huge list of advisors, helpers and contributors we have attended and organised 100’s of events, this lets us see what works well, what we like and dislike and what we want to bring to Blood & Glory. The event is taking place at the Roundhouse in Derby. A beautifully renovated listed building that is the perfect setting for a gaming event. The Bad Dice event ethos is firmly in place here, we want to see amazing armies on the best gaming tables with game mats and terrain on each board. Gamers of all levels of experience are welcome from total newcomers to the hobby right up to grizzled veterans, we have something for everyone. Here are some photos from last years event. http://roundhouse-events.co.uk Check out the video below for a better look . Questions? If you have any questions at all about this event feel free to get in touch. You can contact Ben all over the web!

  3. I have a really cool idea for something we can all get together and do as a community on these forums but I need everyones help to make it happen. Introducing the Battle of The Grand Alliance's Over the next few weeks we can all head over to our chosen subforum and crowdsource the best and most unbeatable army list imaginable for each of the 4 Grand Alliances. Chaos, Death, Destruction and Order. Once your chosen alliance has its champion, the lists can be played against each other by members of the community from all around the world and the battle reports posted back to these forums. After all the games have taken place, and the use has settled, one Alliance shall rule supreme and be rewarded with a make-over of that forum section. This will take a great effort and co-ordination but as we have lardy seen with the amazing process hosted on these forums so far, anything is possible when the community gets together. How Will It Work? I have some ideas, but essentially its up to the community. I want to take the next week to discuss and tweek how this will pan out and set up a set of rules of engagement. As a group we can post ideas in here and grow this to something that can be a lot of fun to be involved with. Building the lists What I'm hoping to see from this is some in-depth discussions around the pros and cons of various builds and why they should be selected as a champion. This will be a meaty topic for veterans to sink their teeth into and educational for newer players that want an insight into the intricacies of list building. All this will be open on the forums so spying and counter intelligence might take place! Your Alliance will have to build a list knowing that all your tactics and plans are known to all, and you will know all your opponents plans too. With a generous timeline we could even see lists being play tested and reported back on. Doing Battle. I don't yet know how to resolve a winner, 4 Armies. 6 Games. 3 points for a major win. But we could also look at having each match-up duplicated and taking the average result if it is played out multiple times around the world. The Winner The winner will be the hobby, and the community who get involved. But one Alliance will rise above and be crowned the champion. I will have a treat in store for that forum section on these boards. I have created the Alliance threads already and they are pinned and locked in each section. Next weekend we will unlock them all and kick things off. Until then lest work on the rules. thanks, Ben
  4. Cheers Gaz. Now we can contact the people who make it and let them know.

    Tournament Realm Rules

    I agree with most of what @Hot Peanut said. Realm rules them selves are not all that much of a leveller, but the unknown entity of facing anything in any realm in any battleplan is what does the levelling
  8. Great work on the lists Chris. If its any help, I use the genius scan iPhone app to do this sort of thing.

  10. lots of great ideas here. I thing Grand Alliance + Realm is a good way to go. Lets not over complicate things, or forget that we are an international community! A 2 dayer a warhammer world would be great but is not very accessible.
  11. I'm not sure on GA vs Faction. lets have some discussions in here and decide. Does anyone have good ideas. My original thinking was to keep it to Grand Alliance and its a bit more of a leveller and lets everyone take part. If you have no idea about a faction then its difficult to make a constructive contribution.
  12. @Gaz Taylor can you set this up next to the Quest and Shadespire sections please.

  17. I tend to pick and army and play it to death. Over the years i've only played a few factions. I get my fix from making small tweaks and seeing the incremental changes in the list. Some people prefer to jump from list to list, or even faction to faction.
  18. Nice work @Tom Loyn I saw on twitter that it was 2x Magma Dragons. What else was in the list? @Positivevictimcame in 2nd with MSU Khorne. It would be good to get both your thoughts on the lists and the event. Especially the game between each other.
  19. I always try to make sure I have options to react to anything and the potential to chase things around the table. Sounds vague, but generally if you have the means to move to focus on a new threat, and the means to hold up/retreat from overwhelming force you are most of the way there. Last year at SCGT I used 2 star drakes. great on paper but the biggest issue was lack of mobility when opponents split up or could move around the table freely. My Legion of Azgorh really struggle with this, so I have had to develop a particular play style when using them. In some matches it just doesn't work. But thats the dis advantage of that faction. My Daughters of Khaine on the other hand excel at this. Ran and Charge. Retreat and pile into combat with sisters. Teleport with Khalibron. They are very strong because of it. Don't for get that when you react to something you do not actually need to kill it. Just hold it up or out number it is enough
