  1. IMO yes that would be acceptable and is definitely almost always part of a wargame of this complexity but it's also certainly more complicated then just three options per se.
  2. @TheNotebookGMI don't know for sure but I bet Dwarves/ Duardin will stay around in some fashion. Interestingly I was just playing around with dwarf list ideas. I think dropping 200 wounds worth of dwarfs on objectives backed by some characters might be pretty effective. I recommend looking at The Army Painter product line they have some products that make painting much faster and require very little skill to use. Where are you coming from? If upstate NY also check out Crossroads.
  3. Wonderful. Draft rules are being shared with some colleagues for feedback but I plan on having them up in the next month. Registration usually opens in July. Gary
  4. We also had one go I think either 3-2 or 4-1 at Da Boyz. Jon Green from the Canhammer podcast. Whole army cost him $25 Canadian to buy
  5. Event Title: Crossroad Grand Tournament - New York USA Event Author: gjnoronh Calendar: Events USA Event Date: 09/28/2019 09:00 AM to 09/29/2019 12:00 AM Crossroads 2019 registration is open! http://www.crossroads-gt.com/home.html The oldest of the northeast USA Warhammer events. Age of Sigmar Grand Tournament also Kings of War, Blood Bowl tournaments. Come for the awesome gaming make memories over the best margaritas you've had at at GT. Tons of fun every year. My favorite event to attend every year I've gone. Rules to be posted but expect it to essentially match the Da Boyz rules set. Straight matched play with Realm rules and secondary objectives per GW's August 2018 suggestions is very likely. I run the Blood Bowl event at this event but will be there as always.

  7. Regarding the OP's point I agree entirely I used to try and figure out 'what I learned' from each tournament game when writing it up. Goes back editions but this is what it looked like for me back in the day: https://www.tapatalk.com/groups/wyrmlingx/big-show-gt-report-t6419.html
  8. I have been watching this very good speed painting series for Blackstone Fortress I highly recommend watching as it's given me techniques to use in other projects. The two of them go through every model in the box. Really efficient. I wish there was a similar series for WH Q silver tower
  9. For what it's worth there was quite a long discussion about balance a few months back here worth a read: Also highly recommend reading the White Dwarf article from Jervis Johnson I linked to at the end of the thread.
  10. Summoning @Sleboda to see if he has advice.
  11. The NEO network (narrative event organizer) has moved to EO's But then what do you call competitive event organizers (CEO's?)
  12. This year we did submit overall rankings and did calculate win streak bonus points. I had to go through each player round by round to determine win streak - multiple hours. There is an alternate system in the US created by Masterpiece Miniatures team that uses the more meaningful (IMO) ELO system that chess uses to reflect difficulty of win vs a given opponent given their skill level ( and at least in other gaming systems where it;s used also the armies involved.) They launched it in the last four months. Individual players have to register to submit their results http://elo.masterpieceminiatures.com/ Overall tends to be a larger award then Battle, Paint, or Sports at most events - because it's a tougher hill to climb all three hills. But some events do 4 coequal awards or all sorts of other mixes. What's right for that TO is up to them.
  13. I think we can certainly agree on the former! See my previous post which you quoted a portion of. There is a lot of variance in how much of what I'd consider to be key features of AoS (Realms of Battle, Malign Sorcery, Mysterious Terrain, Terrain Warscrolls) that tournaments that appear to be matched play actually use. That's without imposing any house rules at all and as you noted there are various add ons to the core rules that GW has suggested for events to use. As you note GW has provided some guidance and it's interesting how much I'd consider to be pretty central to good competitive AoS (Realms of Battle) is optional see the list at the bottom. https://www.warhammer-community.com/2018/08/01/1st-aug-pitched-battles-in-the-mortal-realmsgw-homepage-post-2/ I also think this is worth noting. Because of this, we’d recommend that tournament organisers announce which battleplan, realm and realmscape features will be used in all of the battles in a round, either for all rounds when the players arrive at the event, or about 15 minutes or so before each round is due to begin. It seems fairly rare to me to have events do that. Most post battleplans and realms and realmscape feature pre event which seems contrary to GW's recommendations. I know I surprised some this year by only announcing Battleplans 15 minutes before each round. (I think it's great for encouraging people to think on their feet and bring a 'balanced' list.) Of course as I think about this what makes this discussion pretty amusing is it was launched by discussion on house rules on how to handle concessions. The rules (as far as I know) are silent on how competitive events should handle concessions. We've seen some good examples of house rules on how to handle it in this thread - but they certainly aren't core rules of AoS they are a TO determined add on that some are quite happy with and others aren't.
  14. Hi appreciate your feedback. Yes I run Da Boyz GT. The event sold out the last two years and had a waiting list of roughly 20 when we closed registration so I seem to be doing okay on growth. It's also the largest event in the Northeast US every year since the launch of AoS. In terms of feedback prior to anyone deciding to attend I actually have a number of items (scenarios, house rules etc the specific of what items vary from year to year) that I invite registrants and potential registrants to comment on prior to the event and tweak based on feedback. Some things (sports and painting) that i suspect your club doesn't like (based on our past discussions on this forum) haven't been open to feedback. While the TO team and our local player base provides feedback on the rules pack the majority of the feedback is from the wider player base. My events attendees are less then 10% local players each year. In addition post event there is a formal feedback system built into the players pack and I get informal feedback every year from conversations with attendees, emails post event as well as in various podcasts and youtube channels of attendees. You can't make everyone happy and I don't attempt to. Just as many as possible while hosting the kind of event my team wants to have. Doesn't matter what the rules pack is - it's going to fit for some and not all. If the event isn't the right fit for someone it's probably to both the player and TO's benefit for them not to attend. I'd suggest your criticism about the inadequacy of my approach of asking for feedback pre and post event is probably true for all events. Or do you know of an event where people outside of the region, who aren't associated with the TO team or the local community, and haven't ever attended the event are providing substantive feedback on the rules pack? It seems like you think there is a better way to get that input then what I've got - do you have thoughts on how it's been handled elsewhere that better takes the pulse of their player base?
