Battle of the Bay 2017

Postby SPAWN » Thu Sep 14, 2017 6:05 pm

Hey everyone

We in PE are busy gearing up for this year's Battle of the Bay. As always, our local forges will be churning out terrain and new tables to enjoy. We've also got some great prize support from our local store.
All thats left is the venue for which we'll need an idea of interested participants.
We're aiming for an awesome and relaxed tournament with a good mix of new players as well as grizzled vets from all around SA.

Here's some basic info and preliminary dates:

Port Elizabeth

25-26 November 2017

Warhammer 40k 8th edition

2000 pts

Please let us know if you are interested. I'll be posting updates and developments quite regularly here and on our facebook page:

Hi

i have decided to join the Battle of the Bay.

However I do not want to travel to PE alone. Hence I am looking to share /offer transport if anyone in CT is interested. I am very flexible in terms of both time and mode of transport.

This will reduce my costs getting there.

Any takers? :mrgreen:

Hi guys,

Will I be allowed to play a combined army of two different factions as i don't have enough models to form a pure army of either. I'll end up playing two battalion detachments.

Thanks

As per the rules for battleforged armies their does need to be at least one faction keyword in common across your entire army.

Good day to all the generals entering botb

I was wondering if anyone would possibly have a Skarbrand that I could use during the tournament. Am getting one but Will not have it ready by botb.

If anyone could help me I would much appreciated it

King regards

Results tables for Battle of the Bay below. Congratulations to everyone who played against my bullshit army list for not physically attacking me.

Also, congrats to Marvin for winning both Best Army and Favourite Opponent.
