Hi guys !!

The team is already gearing up for this year's event which will be held at the Marriott hotel at the Tampa airport. This year we are expanding the field of players to 64. There will be six rounds using a W/L format - one undefeated player at the end will be crowned the Warmaster.

Here are some pictures of the pro painted dark eldar army (2000+ points) by Next Level Painting that will be up for grabs as one of our many prizes:

This prize includes two army cases by Sabol as well.

Hi all !!

I have decided to wait until the second week of April to open registration to the general public.The reason being I am on travel all of next week and the week after that... I'll be back then for the better part of April and think that this is for the best - less potential for any hassles.

Registration will be the same as last year via PayPal. We will take the first 64 to register. You have to pick an army and stick with that choice this year so give it some serious thought. We will be collecting army lists two months prior to the event this year. Note that there will be some modifications to the existing mission format such as deployment of objective markers.

We have decided to introduce new deployment rules this year for both Seize Ground and Capture & Control:

— There are four objective markers for Seize Ground - one is placed in the center of each table quarter, or
— There are three objective markers for Seize Ground - draw a diagonal line from one table corner to the far adjacent table corner - one objective marker is placed at the middle of the table while the other two are equidistant from the center (i.e., 22" on either side of the central marker) - the diagonal line is drawn prior to rolling to choosing deployment zones (the two opposing corners are randomly determined)
— You can place your Capture and Control objective marker anytime during your initial deployment
— Capture & Control objective markers must be placed at least 9" from the Seize Ground Objective markers and be placed in the owning players' deployment zones
— All objective markers must be placed on ground level and count as impassible terrain - if there is terrain where an objective marker is to be placed then it counts as touching down to ground level - bikes and cavlary units can move into position to count as being in base contact

Note the that number of objective markers to use for Seize Ground will be stated in the rules for each mission.

These new rules have been introduced to keep the missions as competitive as possible and not give one player any advantage over another during deployment... so basically no more bunching up your objective markers. We found through frequent play testing that invariably certain types of armies (e.g., Draigowing) will cluster up the Seize Ground objective markers and place the C&C objective marker close by as well - they start the game ahead on objectives and play defensively. The new deployment rules create more exciting play and are better balanced for all armies.

Registration opens in two weeks ! Players that register early can purchase 12 packs of Beaky dice ($20 per 12 pack).
