Re: Beat Matt Batrep Season 2 - Win up to $100 in prizes...

Matt, I was wondering if you would like to do another planetstrike game or even something else as a rematch? I am pretty busy until early December and I don't know if December is too busy for the store to be doing batt reps.

Re: Deployment Zone for 1,000,000 pt game?

Actually I think the intention was for people to be able to assault turn 1. Anything with an open topped transport or fleet can potentially make it into combat on the first turn.

Re: Deployment Zone for 1,000,000 pt game?

Randolph, while our table was squished, our deployment zone was actually 18" as you only need to be 6" back from the centerline of the table. That said, yes, if you don't move fast or deep strike, getting from one side of the table to the other can be all sorts of tough. I definitely saw a few guard...

Hey Matt, our game isn't more another week and a half or so, but I thought I might try and touch base with you about our planetstrike game. That said, would you prefer to hash out the details on here, or would you rather send me a message or e-mail of somesort?

Re: Sooo... 1,000,000 points next year?

I agree about not wanting to limit it, but this is also some sort of publicity thing for MWG, just like a beat matt batrep, and I would like it to look good. That said, maybe rather painted models being what attracts attention it is pure size.

Re: Sooo... 1,000,000 points next year?

I am not opposed to the game getting even bigger, but I would really like to see more of an emphasis on everyone having their army full painted for next year as it would make the video look that much more impressive. Now in the interest of full disclosure I will say that 3 of my super heavies were o...

Re: Beat Matt Batrep Season 2 - Win up to $100 in prizes...

Planetstrike Game, huh? I've never played it before, but I did just spend the last 20 minutes glancing at the rules. I'll let you pick the conditions. Just let me know if I am the attacker or the defender, how many objectives there will be, and if you folks have the types of buildlings the rulebook ...

Re: Beat Matt Batrep Season 2 - Win up to $100 in prizes...

Let's say the 22nd at 1pm. Do you have more than 3 Fast Attack, Elites, or Heavy Support? Ok, Thursday September 22nd at 1pm. You are entered into my calendar. Yes, I do have more than 3 of each of those. Strategy might get thrown out the window a little bit, but I could easily fill more than 3 of ...

You asked what date, anything in mid to late September should work as long as it is Wednesday-Friday. If I had to arbitrarily pick a date I would pick September 22nd.

Re: Beat Matt Batrep Season 2 - Win up to $100 in prizes...

Challenge!

Now that that is out of the way. 40k. I'd want to bring Orks. All painted would not be a problem. I can max out every force org. slot, so whatever weird restrictions you are thinking about would not cause me a problem, and 9-5 could work for me.

Re: Some ideas for 2012

At an hour and a half we would end up having to play on Sunday as well. That would be insane, and not the good kind of insane. I do, however, really like the idea someone suggested about having 3 players on 3 tables, so that you end up with a sort of mini-team. I wish I could have interacted with my...

Clarification about flyers

I will start this off by confessing that I did not even look over the rules for flyers before I showed up this weekend as my orks had none, and so I foolishly ignored the rules. My opponent had flyers, and he told me what the rules were and and we went from there. It turns out that we got them wrong...

Re: Sooo... 1,000,000 points next year?

We actually didn't meet until turn two because you blocked the table off with your two Thunderhawks Randolph. ;) But yeah, I had planned on playing the long way as well, but it happens. The best laid plans of mice and men and all. I think we both made the best of it and had a great game.

thanks to MWG & Black Knight Games

I just want to take a moment and thank Matt and Dave from MWG and the guys from BKG for taking all of the time to organize this and get the tables arranged and whatnot. It was a great time, but I'm sure it must have been a ton of work for them too. So thanks again for taking the time. It was a great...

Re: AHHH! Only 2 More Days!

ugh. I am so not going to finish everything to the standard I wanted it done to. With any luck it all should have paint on it, but base coating might be as far as it gets, and for the last tank, and some of my super heavies could use some extra love. There is never enough time!
