Have at it. Although this is intended to be GT style.

ok so here it goes, ok 1st off what are the normal missions for a gt?(yes I am clueless sometimes) 2nd for the basic ideas guessing we would put no restrictions and ds and such so all lists can be used to their fullest. 3rd it could use a nifty name if someone can come up with one.

Anything Cal... although location will most likely be Sci Fi city.

There will be pre-registation too, so no use in discussing any more of that.

Bruce: All kinds of missions are used, but they are normally pretty simple. They normally use DS infiltrate etc. Occasionally they throw in escalation too.

I agree on coming up with a cool name too, and making CaG feature prominently on the posters Smile

Ard boyz scenarios aren't exactly GT style CJ. Very few missions are really GT style to be honest.

I have also talked to Eric already, so I know Sci Fi city will work for this tournament at least. Unless you have some other ideas CJ.

Perhaps the 1750 at Sci Fi and then the 2.5k somewhere else.

well it looked a little cramped in the sci-fi city place. Don't get me wrong i liked it its just it looks small for a tournament plus will they let us?

and for scenarios i will say what i have said before, take and hold and assassinations. but that doesn't have to be the only ones

Ok arb boys rules should be for 2500 point tourny this one should be more normal, also on the poster I like the idea of useing your nicely painted units for pics. On the scenerios best to keep it simple and not to complictated(ard boys did get a tad complicated on who won or not)

Yup best to keep these separate.

Cal: assassination is a very unbalanced kind of mission.

Sci Fi is a bit cramped. 4 6x4 tables normally, but with a 2 more boards brought in we already have enough for 12 players. Not too bad at all really. We can set those up ontop of the card game tables.

Wasn't including anything, just bring it up.

I have plenty of missions we can use to run this. I'll make a list later tonight that could be randomly drawn on the day... then make a large pdf of all of them.

Also a time limit is a must maybe a hour and a half, if not 2+. at 1.5 hours you can just really get the slow people going. Also being a bit cramped isnt much of a problem inbetween games we can just go out into the mall were there is more room.

True, I ment the area right outside scfi, it has plenty of room to relax or you can always make a drink/food run. But yea a rough schedule(give extra time for breaks in such
Rouge Trade? what?

Rogue Trader rules are kind of bullshit. Why limit armies when going for true competition.

Limiting certain parts of the force organization isn't going to help anyone get better as far as GT style play goes.

Bruce: Basically it is restrictions on how much of your army can come from Troops, HQ, Elites etc.

Rougue Trader Rules....this is were your army lists can only exceed to certain percentages. It will force a more 5th Edition style game in a way.....no killer Nid Zilla lists nor Mech Tau.

Meh, you can still break it just as easy. Plus this is the exact kind of things we want at this tournament. Make it as close to GT environment as possible and try get people up to speed as far as competitive play goes.

Like I said no resriactions at all, if we have to we could push it till 5th ed comes out or include some of 5th ed rules into the tourney base rules if people dont want to wait, no cj it isnt but it this points is better based off a gt tourny and such(ahhh do we have to paint our army?)
