Getting stoked for a new year of Warhammer tournaments, especially with Shiloh selling out and BitS just opened up registration and having <30 spots left, not to mention LoneWolfGT is happening again. Then with all the great tournaments happening the US Warhammer community has gotten together and are putting together a US Masters touranment, www.wargamersusa.com for more information. Keep an eye out for exactly how the Southern Region will be selecting its 10 representatives for 2015, we will have it posted before Shiloh and will definitely be talking about it more there.
As for RockWars I am deciding between Sweedish and SCGT comp but heavily leaning towards Swedish just because I’d love to play under that system at least once, I’ll probably have to just settle for what filth you guys come up with.
Cheers, and I’ll see some of you at Shiloh!
If you are just now finding out or checking out the page for information I’m sorry to say I had to Cancel Rock Wars 2013 due to work issues for me. However it will be back in 2014 bigger and better than ever. Go ahead and mark the 3rd weekend of September down on your calendars because you won’t want to miss it.
Also I’ve updated a few things on the page, plus the Appearance Scoring won’t change so no BS about not having enough time to get an army ready.
Just a heads up for everyone. There may be a slight delay in updates to the site as someone broke into my house yesterday and stole my laptop. Until I get a replacement I won’t be able to work on much.
Shouldn’t be more than a week or so.
Spending some time this morning working on scenarios, and adjusting them to fit the 20-nil/Swedish system we are using. Wanted to give you all a heads up that you will need to be aware of Fortitude in your army this year. Any Board Quarters or Objectives that need to be controlled will only be able to be controlled by a unit that generates/has fortitude. In addition there will be at least one Blood and Glory scenario where breaking your opponent’s fortitude will give you bonus VP’s (breaking your opponents fortitude will never instantly end the game).
I will have some more info out as the week progresses on other things involving the tournament and registration will officially open on March 1! We fully expect to sell out this year and I encourage you all to get tickets early, not to mention there will be a discount for Paying Early this year!
The rubric has been posted in it’s appropriate section. Hope you guys like it, if you don’t you can tell me AFTER the tournament! Already can’t wait to see all the armies set up this year.
You’ll also notice we are going to be Judging paint in a better way this year, check out the page for more details.
Been getting loads of questions about Swedish Comp and I have to say I love it. The lists are so different and its great to see them all. If you have any questions about how a list will stat up please just ask and I’ll be happy to help out.
The painting rubric is done just getting the formatting right then I’ll post it, hopefully tomorrow.
Edit: check out this link for a PDF of the UK masters lists all made in Swedish comp
Well planning for Rock Wars III has officially begun (#RW3 for those of you on twitter). Currently the Dates are not 100% but it will be September 14-15 or 21-22, we are currently looking for a new venue, but will have it all nailed down in the next few weeks. Take a look at the rules section, the Composition we will be using this year has been posted and if you aren’t familiar with Swedish Comp you will need to take a minute to familiarize yourself and figure out how it will affect your current army setup.
I will be posting more in the next few weeks as we finalize everything and bring to you guys the best tournament we can.
Just wanted to let everyone know that we have started planning for next year. Currently looking for a new venue, evaluating and changing scenarios, readdressing our scoring in areas we feel it needed, reading all of your great feedback forms, and figuring out how we can make RW3 the best RW yet.
I am currently directing most of my focus to looking at different Comp systems and figuring out what we are going to do. If you have suggestions please let me know, the big one I’m considering is South Coast GT comp from last year, it is fairly heavy comp coming from the Texas/Arkansas GT scene, but fairly light for Europe. Would be different and that is the one thing I will always strive to do, make people bring lists that are different from the ones they would take to other GT’s in our area.
Now off to the races.
Spoke with John Corbett of the WAR group up in North East Arkansas and they want to sponsor two new awards next year as well as sponsor some door prizes. Can’t thank them enough and it’s awesome that people are already looking forward to next year.
Results have been posted to RankingsHQ, and surveys for feed back have been emailed out. Please fill out and return these, can’t make it better without your feedback. Already it will take me several weeks to compile and digest all of the feedback we have gotten so far, but there are definite trends as to what direction people would like things to head.
I will say this, the jury is still out on open-vs-closed lists. Some of you hate closed and love open, some of you are ok with open but love closed and some of you liked having both, so I simply don’t know.
Hoping to have something big to tell you guys about by the new year, just now starting to piece ideas together but I think it would be awesome.
Thanks for another great year,
