  1. Historical wargaming uses measuring sticks a lot and with the proliferation of auras in AoS this market is quite light. Screwed or snap together magnetic 1" lengths would be a great idea. https://productsforwargamers.com/product-category/measuring-sticks/

    AoS 2 - Beasts of Chaos Discussion

    My plan is to run a 3 drop 19 unit list to basically get up early with rapid centigors and chariots, force the opponent into killing them - accruing hopefully 7 Blood Tithe points then activating Relentless Fury to explode Bestigors all over the table backed up by a duo of Bloodsecrators. Have you played it much?

    AoS 2 - Beasts of Chaos Discussion

    Has anyone played Brass Despoilers in a Khorne allegiance army? I'm one converted unit of Centigors away from having my army built but as I've done it during a busy time it's power is all based on supposition and 'feelings' ha ha.
  4. Good idea in general Ben. Aligning it to GBH release is a good idea, moving the 'seasons' summer-summer. I'm not personally a fan of watching warhammer but I know people are, and as long as players are miked, the commentators are on the ball and viewers can see and know what's going on you may convince me! If I was playing in the GT I probably wouldn't want someone parachuted in day two. Better to do the masters on the friday night as others have suggested, or like @Countmoores excellent idea above. The rankings site would need an overhaul to match the professionalism forecast; auto-submission of results, correct allegiance banding etc. Look again at weighting so that sub 2000 point events don't get equal merit. Exciting times.

    Team Event rules pack discussion.

    There's a link to the Blood Tithe pack here https://www.dropbox.com/s/c7hp4od5rbvwxhm/Blood_Tithe_2019_v1.1.docx?dl=0 The goal was to produce a setting in which all members of a team could feel they can contribute, whilst the elimination of kill points ensures punitive play is kept to a minimum. I wanted to reduce duplication without dictating hobby so this was my criteria 'Only Warscrolls with a points profile in The Generals Handbook 2018 current Battletomes up to and inc Feb 16th 2019, Season of War: Firestorm, or units with a Forgeworld points value are valid. Compendium Warscrolls will not be used. Each player must play their own list for all games. No two armies on the same team may have a duplicate warscroll, nor a duplicate allegiance, nor any duplicate artefacts. This includes Endless Spells. Summoned units are not subject to duplication restrictions.' I think capping is crucial to team events and my scoring is as follows: Major Win: 30 Minor Win: 20 Draw: 15 Minor Loss: 10 Major Loss: 5 Secret Mission 5 (per mission) Individual player points will be capped at 30 points per round. Total team points per round will be capped at 100/50. Secret Missions - a precursor to GW Secondaries were very popular. 4 between each team per round, with each player being able to use between 0-2. This meant frequently that the player with the worst draw had maybe 1 or even 2 shots at redemption and contribution to a teams score. I have to add that I think my Secret Missions are better and more suited to team play than GWs own, as they don't depend so much on doing well in the battleplan. I feel GWs reward the winner (anyway) as most are 'end of game'. I tried to formulate mine in a way that they are achievable in early turns and so give an alternative objective to the wielders. Secret Mission 1: Incalculable numbers Destroy any three enemy Battleline units. Secret Mission 2: Precision Strike Destroy the enemy General and / or two enemy Leader warscrolls by the end of battleround two. Secret Mission 3: Bring down the beast Destroy an enemy Behemoth with a Battleline unit in the Combat Phase. Secret Mission 4: Sustained Attack Destroy any two enemy units during your own turn – either by killing them or causing them to flee to battleshock. You must reveal this card in the turn in which you attempt it, at the beginning of the hero phase, before any other actions are taken. I chose 5 Batteplans which I thought would encourage the most diverse armies, and also those that promote Minor Wins, and avoid random scoring. Game 1 : Focal Points (GHB2018) Game 2 : Total Commitment (GHB2018) Game 3 : Take and Hold (Core Rulebook) Gift from the Heavens Game 4 : Places of Arcane Power (GHB2018) Game 5 : Blood and Glory (Core Rulebook) Overall this pack was very popular last year with no suggestions for revision - so I didn't!

    England Team Selection Criteria / Debate

    The people attempting to organise ETC in 2018 posted a thread in the events section of this forum and garnered zero responses (you can search for it). Four teams attended it last year (France, Poland, Russia, Croatia.... I think?) - none from the UK. AFAIK the organisers subsequently reached out to people they knew from other editions of Warhammer to generate some traction, which they managed, culminating in Toms posting in the very same forum, along with Twitter - canvassing for applications. I don't recall a lot of interest or attention at the time - digs about tuna cans and bucket of bug armies notwithstanding - and practically zero interest in it until the team announcement the other day. The requesting of applications via Twitter and TGA garnered 12 applications. One of them was me - I didn't make the grade 😭 My takeaway from this preamble is that no one cared much for ETC prior to Tom taking up the mantle, and very, very few people showed an interest until the team announcement. At which every second person in the 'Aos Community' claimed to have a dog in the fight, moral outrage ensured, and people lost their minds - on all sides of the argument. As far as selection criteria goes I can't argue against what's already been put into place. It seems pretty robust and Jack has done great work to break it down. There's a high emphasis on ability with a lot of contributing factors. For sure Ben can count himself unlucky this time around, but the competition was pretty stiff from 'new' faces Jack and Darren, given that the other guys comprising the team won the 6 nations last summer, ergo underpinning their 'have models will travel' credentials. To the questions about where to garner this Team / International experience - there are many team events now, not least Bloodtithe (my own) which to some degree overlapped ETC AoS. Doing well in these will no doubt hold people in good stead and will also tick the 'International opponents' box. Not for nothing were a French team from last years Bloodtithe noted to have their own 'French Meta'. This was evidence of what Jack says above. There are plenty of overseas tournaments and returning victorious from one of those will surely bolster anyone's credentials. It sits ill at ease with me, this 'demand for representation without input', and the entitled tweets about public votes amongst the Warhammer community. Books have been written about what constitutes a community and no one can reasonably cover that here. What is known is that an entity exists and is openly accessible to all; run, supported and peopled by people from the 'community' who are already in varied ways net contributors to that 'community'. If people say 'oh it's an old boys club, they only pick their mates' well then - you're never going to be part of anything better... better than a snarky tweet, or comment on Discord. It's good this is being discussed in plain site. I don't think their is to much wrong with in general, engagement, criteria or composition. Everything can be improved, but I really think this is a case of minor tweaks not major surgery.

    Great Idea Rob - I'm a big fan of fantasy football and this is right up my street. I'm sorry to say I won't be picking you... nor myself!

    London Grand Tournament - September 2019

    Thanks yes - it should be a good one coming soon after what we would expect to be GHB2019, plus lots of emphasis on getting a great spread of armies.

    Objective grabbers needed!

    @Ben you can't look further than 2 x 3 Enlightened on disc. They require no synergy or buffs, are lightning fast flyers, have a small foot print, and dish out enough attacks to wipe off the opposition objective holders. This thread is now closed
  12. Looks great, it may have been you I was chatting to on Facebook. A contingent of South London Legion are coming down next monday for a day-long play date. Those Angel guys might beg, fruitlessly, to differ, but we're the true AoS Kings of London Can't wait!
  13. What is it? A year-long regional Age of Sigmar 2000 point, matched play competition comprising of two group stages culminating in a knockout competition. Games are first played within your immediate club or group before breaking out into a wider competition for later stages. This is a light-touch, non-commercial, non-affiliated, community competition with original foundations in our club whatsapp chat! It’s free and you can play how it best suits your group within loose parameters. How will it work? Players will be drawn into 5 person groups, comprised of players within their club, group or area. After these four games are played the top three will qualify for ‘The Cup’ group stage, the bottom two for ‘The Plate’ group stage. New players joining after the season begins may enter ‘The Plate’ at this stage. The top three players from each of these groups will then go into the separate knockout competitions for ‘The Cup’ and ‘The Plate’ What about my list? Lists will be locked upon submission but a player will be permitted to change their list before the second group stage, and before the knockout stage. A swiftly reticent player may also ‘burn’ their list after 1 game in either group stage by sacrificing points. Lists are open and public. What are the dates? Dec 31st – List submission deadline Jan 15th – Apr 15th First Group stage (4 or 5 games) May 1st – July 31st Second Group stage (3 or 4 games) – New players may enter at this point August 15th – December 1st Knockout Stages (Post GHB 2019?) Where can games be held? Anywhere, anytime – within the windows. Your club, another club, at home, in-store, an impromptu one-dayer event to fulfil fixtures or even meet up as a grudge at a major tournament. It’s up to you. Where can I see / enter results? Players will be able to self-submit to our competition in Tabletop.to where all the scores, tables, fixtures, lists and stats will be held. Use the hashtag #aossuperleague to follow what’s going on. Is there a charge? It’s free, although you may want to donate a £1 or 2 to tabletop.to who’s platform this will be based on. You’ll find a button on there. Rankings? It’ll be submitted to Baddice rankings at the end of the season, probably merged & collated across all players. More info? BETA 'pack' here. aossuperleague@gmail.com @WarbossWilson Marc Wilson (TGA)
