Ok actual rule questions. So in mission 1 can I summon the rest of army on turn 1 because your rules are about walking on reserves. Alternatively can I just take 3 turns to head over to the exit point with 259 points of dudes and summon everyone at the exit point?

As long as you play within the rules given, yes all sorts of strategies and tactics could be used. Teleporters, summoned, flying, hovering, burrowing, etc.. would not be forced to use the skiffs if they did not want to.

The rules for All Ashore do not force you to bring models into the deployment area in subsequent turns. In the case of the Demonic Conclave, you are always free to wait as long as you want to bring any unsummoned models to the table. So the short answers to both questions are "yes".

 

EDIT: Aaaaand, Jason slides the answer in just before me, ::P:

I bought my ticket online and signed up for two classes at this year's RCon. One is 2-4pm Friday the other is 2-4pm Saturday. :down:

 

But I would really like to try playing in the Warlord Tournament this year. Could you sign me up for Friday?

 

When I register on Thursday maybe I can swap the class ticket for a different class from those available at the door or something.

ReaperCon 2012 Warlord Tournament: Isla del Tesoro

 

War may be hell, but it is also expensive. As hostilities never seem to stop in Taltos, every faction is always in need of funds for their coffers to feed the machine of War. Taxation and the spoils of battle are never enough, and that makes an opportunity like this one too tempting.

 

It has long been rumored that there is an island where generations of pirates buried their plunder. The stories tell that the legendary pirate king Caine the Crimson was the last pirate to know the location of the island. He and the crew of his ship, the Dark Phoenix, disappeared some 50 years ago, and some say the island was there destination. They were never seen or heard from again… that is, until Caine’s charts showed up in Port Gangrel. News of the charts spread like wildfire, and it wasn’t long before a ship was under way to find the island. All of the factions of Taltos set out in pursuit, each with the same goal: to find and seize the gold from La Isla del Tesoro!

 

The tournament is a story arc, although unfortunately not all participants will be able to play the three scenarios in order due to logistical issues. The terrain for the tournament is composed of 3 islands. Each island is broken down into 3 connected tables of terrain: a beachhead at the western end, an elevated ruins section in the middle, and a rocky cove at the eastern end. Each scenario is keyed to a specific part of the island’s terrain, and each section has special rules that apply to it.

 

In the first of the three scenarios, All Ashore, the players will compete to rendezvous with their shore party while attempting to prevent their opponent from doing the same. This scenario takes place on the beachhead on the western end of the island. In the second scenario, Pieces of Eight, the players will compete to find the most buried treasure. This scenario will take place on the elevated ruins of the middle section of the fractured island. In the third scenario, The Phoenix Rises, the players will race to seize control of the legendary pirate ship, the Dark Phoenix, and sail away with their booty.

 

Tournament specific rules for the ReaperCon 2012 Warlord Tournament:

  • 1) All models using the Swift Attack ability must have space to make base to base contact with the enemy model they wish to attack on their action.
  • 2) When using the Summoned (Demon) SA granted by the Gate ability of the Demonic Conclave doctrine for the Darkspawn faction, demons summoned in this manner must be of equal or lesser point value than the summoning model.
  • 3) Sir Broderick, Justicar is allowed to lead Justicar soldiers.
  • 4) The spells Flaming Arrows and Barrage do not stack. If a model has both cast on it, the player must chose which spell is in effect for each Shoot Action.
  • 5) The abilities gained by the Howl portion of the Koborlas "Call of the Wild" Doctrine can be used as a free action once per game turn.

It will be similar to 2011, where the tourney will be run across both Friday and Saturday. So, you can play on either day (one or the other). A maximum of 18 people can register per day on a first come first served basis for the tourney for a total of 36 available slots. This is to try and help all people to take classes and still participate in the tourney.

 

The tourney itself will be a 3 round tourney, with each round lasting approx 90 minutes. Each player will bring a single 1000 point army list and play that same army list for all three rounds. Players will be allowed to choose faction doctrines to be in affect before the start of each round. the actual round times are still to be determined, but I imagine it to be similar to last year where we had one late morning round, a break for lunch, and then two after noon rounds. (ex.11am, 2pm, 4pm).

TGP - I will try my best to help facilitate this class swap. Please come find me as soon as you are able so that It doesn't get forgotten.

It is Monday "after" afternoon and I am just now starting to get caught up in the office enough to try posting here.

 

THANK YOU ALL for an awesome tourney. I was very pleased with how it went.

 

I will get all of the specifics posted up later but here are the highlight items:

 

Of the 19 official factions available, 14 were represented in the tourney!

 

We had a tie for 1st. We also had a tie for 2nd. (For $250 worth of total prizes handed out)

 

We had armies win $125 worth of prizes for paint jobs.

 

I hope that everyone that participated posts at least one EPIC high or low they experienced in the tourney. That is where the memories are!

 

Again all the specific details on who got the prizes will get posted tonight...

Stubbdog, once again, thanks so very much for all of your effort in running the tourney, assembling the gaming boards, and also just in making a newcomer feel welcome! I had an awesome time at the tourney and at the convention as a whole!

 

My highlight of the tourney was in the last round of my game against MinniCannuck. With all of his companions dead, my dwarf king alone faced off against both a wounded Frost Giant Warrior from in front and a wounded Frost Wyrm from the rear. And he somehow managed to smite both of them while only taking one hit in return! The picture is the best way to show how lop-sided that battle looked.

My low of the tourney was when my entire army managed to plod their way up the beach in the first senario only to find psyberwolfe1's entire army awaiting them all the way across the map in their "leave the board zone."

... I hate dwarves.

 

Actually, I don't really hate anything. I normally don't play any sort of tournaments since I just field armies of figures I want to paint rather than tactics (I try my best though). Stubbdog did an amazing job at keeping this fun to the point that I'm already thinking about my army for next year.

 

Thank you to all my opponents - I had a great time and learned a lot more about the game.

 

I will post my list from this tournament in a couple of days once I recover from my trip home. I was supposed to be back home at 7:10 last night but due to travel issues (weather, flight challenges), I didn't get home till 5:30 this morning.

 

... finishing up the paperwork I need done at the office then going to sleep.

 

night night, eh?
