Good call.

I know people are excited about potential new rules coming through CiD for their factions, but we need to remember that CiD is a development platform, which means the rules in it are not complete. One of the bigger advantages of WM over other systems is the tight, well-tested ruleset so we really shouldn't be using beta-release rules.

Yea pretty much, those rules are not final, for me they were never intended for tournament use.

Looking forward to this. Hoping to try out a new list. Should be fun.

I'm essentially playing a new faction.

Should be great fun.

I really really hope we can run on time.
I have something in the evening (just came up) that I would like to attend.

Will be strict on timings. The Eli does not like running late

One thing that always seems to happen is that because we use Death Clock people seem to think that is the official timer. It is only the official timer if you start on time. Deploy on the clock and don't pause for rules queries. Otherwise the official round end is still the scheduled round end.

This means you should have your armies unpacked and on a tray. Be at your table ready to go at round start and be ready to start deploying at round start. That means you already know who is going first and the scenario is already set up.

This is probably why I don't run tournaments anymore :) At least my tournaments were ALWAYS on time.

Yup that is correct. There will be 15 minutes between rounds and the expectation is that you will be ready to go on time. At the end of the round its dice down if your deathclock is up or not.

Please cna everyone try and be there at 8:30 for registration, games will start at 9
