  1. I am going to run a meeting engagement tournament and I am proposing to set a points limit for individual units to 350 or 400. I feel like running up against Gotrek or the like on a tiny board would be quite a negative play experience. Is this the right thing to do or am I overreacting? I am intending for the tournament to be encouraging for young and new players.
  2. I am going to be running a small meeting engagement tournament in Bristol (Ingaland) in March. I was wondering if there were any common rules queries I should cover in the tournament pack as the format is not well played? The two things that I can think of are: The bone tithe nexus will be treated like any other piece of faction terrain. If there is no space, there is no space. "Deepstriking" units are to be declared before deployment commences and deployed with the relevant contingent. Anything else I should add?
  3. Hy fellow sigmarites, As a Cities Player whose meta heavily focusses on ME I thougt about starting a topic to talk about lists and strategies for ME. A lot of people talk about strategies and lists for games with 2000 pts. for each of their cities in the city threads, but ME has a completely different approach since some of the new tactics relying on the AA (e.g. living city deepstrike or tempest eye movement and saves buff) as well as some of the stronger units in the new book (e.g. shadow warriors) simply do not work as good in ME as in a "normal" 2000 pts. pitched battles list, while other combinations of MSU or hammerhal-focused lists could be a better fit for such small games. To start I want to discuss a tempest eye list: Allegiance: Cities of Sigmar- City: Tempest's EyeMortal Realm: AqshySpearhead3 x Demigryph Knights (180)- Lance and SwordMain BodyFreeguild General (100)- General- Trait: Hawk-eyed- Artefact: Patrician's HelmBattlemage (90)- Spell: Lore of Eagles - Aura of Glory (Tempest's Eye Wizard)- City Role: General's Adjutant (Must be 6 wounds or less)- Mortal Realm: Hysh20 x Freeguild Crossbowmen (200)20 x Freeguild Greatswords (320)- City Role: Honoured Retinue (Must be 5-20 models)Rearguard5 x Freeguild Pistoliers (100)Total: 990 / 1000Extra Command Points: 0Wounds: 72 The idea is pretty simple: a fast and hard hitting unit in the spearhead for possible first round objective grab while also ready for some fighting. Strong main body fighting unit for hoding an objective with possible buffs from the heroes who generate CP whilst being supported from long range shooting. Small and fast unit of pistoliers in the rearguard for late game objective grabbing or some shooting and fighting with a few bodies if another objective is in imminent danger. But there are some things I am not quite happy: I would prefer shadow warriors instead of pistoliers for late game objective grabbing but the variability of deployment in the different scenarios in combination with the shadow warriors deployment makes it quite hard to use them efficiently. I am also not quite sure about the city itself - the tempest Eye buff on saves and movement in the first round does not really help in ME, but the general-AA buff on movement could be viable. Same goes for the General's abilities - hawk eyed is nice, but when the crossbows stand still and get the hold-the-line it is pretty useless ^^ maybe hammerhal would be the better option. How are your experiences with ME in with the new book? Which city offers the best AA for small games? Thanks for the discussion and sorry for bad english 😉
  4. Dear fellow Age of Sigmar players, I would like to organise a small Meeting engagement event at my local geedub before the end of the year. I want to organise that for several reasons: After my first tournament ever this week end (Bloodshed in the shires 2019 which saw me going from 8 games ever played to 12!!! ), I am really motivated to play more Even if I did not have the chance to play it, I am convinced that ME is fun after watching a couple of ME battle reports on the interweb. In addition, I don't have any friends to play with (my only toy soldiers friend is living overseas), only the usual bunch at my local geedub. My local geedub's (bi-) monthly events are usually from 13h to 18h (5 hours), on 4*4 tables (because unfortunately they don't have much place), and I have been a little frustrated to never finish 1 game properly there since I started playing, because the time allowed to play is too short even for 1.5k points games. So my goal here is to experience with this format at least once and ensure that all player can play 2 games in this narrow 5 hours slot. But because I don't think it makes sense to bring something like Archaon, Morathi or Nagash (whom I don't think you can anyway), I thought that a point limitation could be relevant. My rule of thumb would be to restrict any unit that is over 1/3 of the 1000 points ME limit, because it feels that those units are not designed for less than 1.5k if not 2k games. So I started a small survey on twitter (check below), but you are welcome to comment here, and not on the relevance of Meeting engagement. I don't want to start a never-ending discussion à la "is zero a number?" Points limitation on this survey are 300, 350, 450 and no point limitation, to stick around the "inferior to 1/3 of 1000 points, because I want to keep hte restriction as simple as I can. Also, concerning the time frame, it seems that I could guaranty 2 * 1h15min games for up to 8 people in 5 hours: For 8 players (tight schedule) First round 13h -> 14h15, players 1 to 4 Second round 14h20 -> 15h35, players 5 to 8 Third round 15h40 -> 16h55, players: 1, 3, 5 and 7 Fourth round 14h -> 18h15, players: 2, 4, 6 and 8 For 6 players (either with a 4th round for 4 of the 6 players or with 90 minutes games) First round 13h -> 14h15, players 1 to 4 Second round 14h20 -> 15h35, players: 5, 6, 1 and 3 Third round 15h40 -> 16h55, players: 5, 6, 2 and 4 What do you experienced warmongers think? https://twitter.com/pseudorythme/status/1188855811390484480?s=20
  5. Hi everybody, I'll play a 1000 points tournament (meeting engagement) in october. I've two ideas: Clan: Drakkfoot Savage big boss 100 Burnin' Tattoo Wardokk 80 Breath of gorkamorka Wardokk 80 Brutal Beast spirit Maniak weirdnob 120 Mork's Boney Bitz 20 arrowboyz 240 20 arrowboyz 240 Kunnin' rukk 140 Tot 1000pt I want to use arrowboyz to stab* enemies from big distances**. I noticed that in ME Melee figths works well... I thought that maybe if i can't kill them in Melee i maybe kill them from distance.... * Orruks don't shoot: they stab from distance * For an orruk Or: Clan: Bonegrinz Savage big boss 100 Wardokk 80 Breath of gorkamorka Aeterquarz Brooch Maniak weirdnob 120 30 Savage orruks 300 8 Savage big stabbas 400 Tot 1000 This is the more resistent of the two and the stronger, becouse i can arrive in Melee at the first turn. I also need a help to split the units in Vanguard, main body and rearguard. Thanks
  6. Hi Guys, My name is Harry, I am brand new to AOS based around South West London and am going to be getting Soul Wars in the next few weeks to start my Hobby journey. My only issue is that, I dont know anyone else that plays! I would love to meet and chat to people on here to play, ( help me learn the rules!) paint and Hobby with! Looking forward to getting started! See you all out there
  7. Hello everyone and thank you in advance! When building a list on the Azyr app, if you build a list that contains 3 of the same unit from a warscroll and a battalion that needs all 3 units from that warscroll. It says that its invalid, is this an error on there end? The GHB says "Your army cannot include more than 2 units chosen from the same warscroll, unless those units are part of a warscroll battalion in your army." When I read this I feel like it means you can have more than 2 units from the same warscroll as long as you take a battalion that allows you to do so. Thanks again!
  8. Hi everyone, I wanted to ask a question. After the release of the GHB2019 there was a lot of talk about Meeting Engagements and what a cool new format this is for Age of Sigmar. Directly before and after the release there were a lot of posts and videos about Meeting Engagements. I for myself am not a fan of huge 2000-3000 points battles and most of the time I have not enough space to fight a battle on such a huge table with my gaming group. This is why I really like the Meeting Engagements format and that GW decided to push smaller points games more. But now, as some time has passed, I have the feeling that "Meeting Engagements" was just some initial hype. Some YouTube Channels have gone back to posting only about 2000 points games and also most of the posts in forums or on reddit have also gone back to 2000 point games. The last time something was posted in the "Meeting Engagements" - Thread on TGA was July 12. Normally if a format is relevant there are frequent posts about it. Maybe this is just a personal feeling based on my limited perception and maybe my opinion is totally subjective, but this is why I wanted to post about this. Was "Meeting Engagements" just an initial hype and people will push 2000 points battles more and more or is this just my subjective opinion? Me and my gaming group really like this format, because you don't need such a huge collection for Meeting Engagements and it helped me to pull some new people into the hobby, because the games were fast and there was not so much going on. I would find it sad if the rest of the community pushes this format aside and goes back to mainly 2000 points battles. Don't get me wrong. I also like to play 2000 point battles, but I find "Meeting Engagements" to be easier. I also had hopes that this might be new competitive format, which will be played often. But I have the feeling that the community was only interested initially and now starts to go back to 2000 point battles. I would be interested in more discussions and battle reports about Meeting Engagements online, because it is such an accessible format. I think initially Age of Sigmar was more accessible and I often have the feeling that the existing community often pushes formats, which are very hard to get into for new players. Maybe because many people were collecting miniatures since Warhammer Fantasy and because of that many engaged players already possess 2000 - 3000 points armies. But everytime I search for some inspiration for my local group etc. I find that 2000 points-games dominate most of AoS discussions. This could be a reason why a format like "Meeting Engagements" is pushed aside. But as I said before, this might just be totally subjective. This is why I wanted to ask you all about this. I wanted to discuss if my subjective feeling is indeed correct or if I am just imagining things and in the end "Meetings Engagement" will totally turn out to be a viable matched play format.
  9. How do reserve units work in Meeting Engagements? Let's say I have a unit of NH Reapers I want to jump in as part of my main contingent. The main contingent in the scenario enters end turn 1. Questions: (1) Will this mean they are setup at the end of turn 2, as per normal NH Faction abilities? (2) At what stage can I declare them to be reserves / using the NH ability? At the start of the battle when declaring the armies and contingents OR or when the contingent is setup to enter battle? (Related bonus question - let's say the contingent only contains 1 unit - can it be setup in reserve?) (3) My understanding is that it is only a unit that for instance has to be setup prior to the contingent arriving that will be lost? (That you cannot use that part of the rules to for argue the same Reapers are lost because they cannot enter end of turn 1 since their rules only allow them to be setup at the end of a movement phase. This would basically turn-off all reserve abilities since most work in the movement phase and contingents enter end of turn)
