Warcon - 2 Sept - JHB- Warmachine

Postby The italian job » Tue Jul 04, 2017 7:38 pm

Hi people,

On the 2nd of September we are going to have our Warcon Warmachine tournament.

We will not be enforcing painted armies, however make sure you have painted arcs and at least base painted armies are encouraged (like if you play Cygnar, make a effort to have the jacks sprayed or based blue, nothing too time consuming, really).

Since we like to run something innovative, we are going to use the new Steamroller 2017 format.

Is now official!

You can download the SR2017 from here:

http://files.privateerpress.com/op/2017 ... 202017.pdf

Army variant: baseline
Game variant: baseline

Please note deathclock is now default in SR2017, so please come with your own chess clock/ app. Clock in warroom kinda sucks so be advised.

A couple of extra rules:

1) Take it easy. We are going to have a relaxed schedule so no need to rush. We have the venue available until midnight so we will probably have some generous breaks here and there.

2) Conversions will be allowed, even with no strictly PP models. So if you don't have a specific model but you have a GW model that will be reasonably similar (or you want to convert), it's not a issue. Just send me a photo of the model beforehand so a informed decision can be made. If you're planning to do that, please do contact me in advance so we are not going to have issues during the tournament day. Please note this rule is to have people playing and trying models they could not specifically have or own yet, not to proxy a whole army, so use it with judgement.

Registration starting at 10 AM, games starting as soon as registration is complete.

Entry Fee: 120

Venue: Jeppe Quondam Bowling club
79 Boeing Road East
Bedfordview
2008

Early registration is appreciated so I can budget in some nice prizes.

See ya there.

Oh forgot to mention. Point size 75 pts, I suppose it goes without saying.

I'm not super excited by finishing tournaments late in the evening. Just because we can finish at midnight doesn't mean its a good idea.

If generous only means 15 minutes end time for 3 rounds is 16:45 but for 4 rounds it means 19:15
Generous probably means more than 15 minutes.
More than 8 players means 4 rounds needed.
They're something terribly satisfying about personally murdering the enemy wizard-general. Wracking them is cathartic, like squeezing a great big stress ball, except you're strapping it to a massive metal religious icon and it's screaming. -cryptomancer

I count to finish around 7/8 PM (need to check the round timing), surely once in a while people are allowed to hang around with the boys.

Also we will see if it's the case to have a bit of a social event after, like we used to do in the warcon of yore, but only if there are enough people interested.

Come, it will be fun.

Tournament entry down to 120.

Estimated game time is 6 hours.

I was counting to put a 60 minutes break for lunch, but considering the max playing time is 2 hrs (60 minutes per player on the clock) we could be forced to cut it down to 30 minutes.

The idea was to have a bit of a painting competition and prize giving in that break, I will see if it's really viable.

We'll see how it goes.
