Trollcon 2017 WMH tournament 14 Oct 2017

Postby Dark Angel » Thu Aug 17, 2017 2:26 pm

Trollcon will take place at the Roosevelt Park bowls club, Milner ave, Randburg on Saturday he 14th of October 2017. Ample secure parking will be available and food and drink will be available at the venue

75 point Steamroller 2017 will be used with 2 exception, firstly ADR is allowed and secondly players will be classed as either tournament regular or not by the TO (no arguments will be entertained), games are as normal except when at tournament regular faces a non-regular. When that happens the non-regular will pick which list he wants to face and should the regular be playing with specialists they cannot be used.

Painting: Models do not need to be painted however front arcs must be painted on all models

Rounds: Baseline

Victory conditions: Baseline

Schedule:
Registration will take place between 8:30 and 9. Time will be strictly adhered to, if you are late you can start with the second round. Target will to be done by 5 but that is dependent on the number of players and the resulting number of rounds

Entrance fee and prizes:
Tournament fee is R100 per player, there will be prizes sponsored by Pandemonium Games (go buy your plasticrack there, they rock)

That is all.

Wow, looks like I'm the only non tournament regular. Should be fun :)

I understand the spirit of the tournament and so on but how do you exactly get to play specialists in a baseline steamroller?

ADR is allowed in a standard steamroller tournament which in turn given you access to specialists

Also as an aside, if anyone is thinking of playing but does not really have the collection, I am happy to loan models as are a number of other people.

Seriously? But it's a home rule or a "hard" rule?

The baseline variant says so:

BASELINE – Second list optional. If a player brings two lists, each
must be led by warcasters or warlocks from the same Faction.
Players cannot include the same version of a warcaster or warlock
in more than one list.

Doesn't mention ADR or such. Then there is the specialist variant where you can include your specialists, but that paragraph do not mention ADR (it applies to every list).

I'm guessing Eli didn't realize you needed to be a masters tournament to have ADR or just add in an addendum for Steam Roller. I will clarify with him.

Yea I assumed ADR was standard. It will be allowed for this tournament. Post amended.

Good to know, I assumed I completely misread the tournament pack and I was worried for warcon.

Certainty was reinstated.

I can't make any commitment unfortunately if I don't know which shift I will be working on that day.

Working shifts kinda sucks, last time I wanted to attend a tourney at D20, then they changed the date and I could not attend anymore.

I can attend/run events at warzone because they're usually tailored on my availability. Attending events in other venues, is kinda problematic (with all the goodwill of the world).

Is CID allowed? For instance will I be able to play the new mercs irregulars theme force?

No. Nothing still in CID. If it makes it through and is on Warroom then yes.
