  1. Michael will be at the Asylum on Thur night at least for the time being, We really have to justify his keeping the shop open with attendance and patronage of the store.

     

    I'm taking care of the GameWyze side as a option for those folks who can't or don't want to drive out to the company store on Thursday nights.

     

    Better to have two options then none.

  2. When you guys are ready to post them to the Wolflair site let me know, I've got their direct contact info right here.

     

    And a side note to anyone attending GenCon stop by and see the Wolflair guys, they are a great bunch of guys, and on top of that they hold two seminars during the convention on how to build data sets. Both a beginner and advanced class. I got to go to the Advanced class last year and it was really really helpful!

  3. Ya scenario objectives fit in well, to any style of play.

     

    Swiss style is where the first round match ups are completely random, then you rank everyone based on their win loss points and sort the list top to bottom and pair up based on top points, and then resort after the second round. what should happen is the top players should play each other and then it should shake down the list based on skill levels.

  4. Ya I went with GameWyze for a second alternative to those folks who don't want to drive to the Asylum and for those younger folks who are dependent on a ride from their folks.

     

    between the two shops we should be able to meet every ones gaming needs!

     

    I'll be at Vista Ridge to help oversee things there, so for those of you not wanting to make the trip head on over.

  5. For a first time tourny with first time players I highly recommend a 750 point tourniment that allows folks who have only purchased a starter set to field what they currently own. then has you get more players your next few tourniments increase in points costs.

     

    best bet is to run three one hour rounds using the swiss style.

     

    I've done this quite a bit and it works really well, this gives everyone a chance to play at least three other players, and sorts out the top folks to fight each other.

  6. With the sudden closure of the Jasco store many of you have wondered "Well now what am I going to do with my Thursday nights?"

     

    I have a answer!

     

    The nice folks at GameWyze have opened their arms to us for a place to meet and play on Thursday nights or when ever we want!.

     

    I will be up there between 6:30 and 7 with some CAV ready to go, and we will have three other tables available for Warlord and CAV.

     

    If you have some small portable terrain, please bring it as our current terrain selection at their newer store is limited.

     

    So come on out and join me at Vista Ridge Mall, down stairs right out side of the entrance to Dillards starting at 6:30 or so on Thursday night.

  7. We had a small game the other night 1000 points I had Merick and 10 phalanx in a nice little block that did pretty well, and Lorenth and two zephyrs.

     

    my only disappointment was the zephyrs themselves don't have first strike. But when Lorenth and his two sidekicks caught a unlucky razig out in the open it made for a very quick exchange.

     

    I really wished we had gotten a second damage track on the phalanx to let them at least survive a blow through attack or go up against elves.

     

    an amusing tactic when testing the lock shields ability vs. razig is to lock shields until they are dumb enough to fire on you, then double move the next turn while they are reloading.

     

    I've also been running my blocks in blocks of 4 which gives you all the benefits of lock shields, with one extra to loose just in case and makes you less of a firestorm target.

  8. ok the true question is what do folks want?

     

    cav tourny

    warlord tourny

    painting demos

    sculpting demos

    panel discussions

    general gaming

     

    those are just some of the normal things that go on, a massive two day tourny has been discussed much like GW does with their grand tournies. but what do you folks want

  9. As promised a couple of shots of the days action.

     

    After a fun filled scramble for flags in the first round ice breaker the real one on one action starts at the top of round 2. With almost a packed house.

    Darren's Elves taking the field with their captured flags from round one, giving him a free standard upgrade for each troop with a flag.

    Emmel Eitch and Saint Vierzehn go head to head in round 3 it was a hard fought game for both of them.

    Darren and Gus set up for the final match up for round 4, on the dreaded snow table provided by Stubdog for the day. Everyone who saw it thought it was cool, everyone who played it cursed his name.

  10. Hey gang couple of quick reminders.

     

    Be sure to get there early, in plenty of time to check in. Be sure to please bring a nice legible Printed force list, the easier it is for myself and you to read the better it is in the long run.

     

    Please bring dice and a measuring device along with your mini's If you forget Mark has plenty for purchase.

     

    If you have not already signed up at the shop, or contacted the manager by phone or email to sign up do so ASAP, we only have a few slots left.

     

    Please be sure to write down your ReaperGames ID and bring it with you.

     

    Can't wait to see everyone tomorrow it looks to be a great day!!!
