2014 questions

Post by Prophet19 » Wed Oct 23, 2013 12:17 pm

So irronically i saw the youtube video of 2013's game. and well it got me back into 40k after 9 years. So i guess ill make this short.

So i NEED to field 14k points? or can i bring say. a 5k point army?

Does it take place in one day? or over several?

Anyone in GTA willing to give a fellow player a lift? ill pay for gas :)

Welcome! It is awesome to hear our ridiculous shenanigans got you back into the game.

For your questions:

1) You do not need 14k. Only those of us who are caught up in the Arms race tend to bring that much (or more. God, what am I doing with my life...). 5k should suffice. It also means you are more likely to have it all painted up for the event as well.

2)It is a two day event. The Friday has been arrival, bid for first turn, set up and first turn so far. Day two is the final four turns, along with a couple breaks for lunch and unwinding.

3)GTA there are a number of us (well, 3 at least in Toronto) that have gone every year. There is likely more, just not 100% positive on that one. As such, I am sure a ride is very easy to arrange, depending where people are staying.

Since a location has yet to be determined, that final point has a lot of ambiguity at the moment.

Where abouts in the GTA are you? If you are in Toronto, come on up the GW at Yonge/Lawrence on Thursdays. Good group of people, and can get you back into the game no problem.

Sorry for the late replies, I am acually in Oshawa (shudders) so as you can imagine the only really warhammer 40k players here are aparently a closed group.

Ill pop in in a week or so to see how it is a drop some money.

i should be able to make a 5k point army by then (im currently casting custom models for my army)

Sorry for the double post, I was wondering if custom models are allowed? Like i have ordered custom casted models to be used as my infantry, is this allowed? (and yes they will be clearly marked)

If it is a reasonable looking model, you should be fine. However, it is always a safe bet to fire off a quick picture of the model in question to Matt for approval.

I think it is just matt@miniwargaming.com. Otherwise, he is pretty active in here as well.

I have a few of those models for a fallout wargame I am planning. They are really nice but it might get expensive to fields a lot of them. If I remember correctly they area about $10 a model. Goog luck anways, hope to see you at there
7k TY: Hive Fleet Typhon

There will be more restrictions next year for scratch build anything. Basically it will be required that it accurately represents the model in terms of size and weaponry.

I think we all agree that with some models last year it was difficult to determine just what it was supposed to be or what weapons it was using, esp with the arms race ramping up more and more as it is (more and bigger titans being scratch built) I welcome at least some guidelines for this.

Hello!
I just joined at the gold level and hope to be an active part of the Canadian wargaming community! I have been a 40k "collector" since 1991 and have poured too many of my personal resources into this game. The reason why I am a collector versus a player is the fact that here in Chicagoland people are "FUN POLICE" and defeated the purpose of getting into the game when I did where I grew up (Iowa---where everybody is nice and just enjoys life) until I left for college (IOWA HAWKEYES!!). I admit that my enthusiasm for Games Workshop waxes and wanes with their policies I see imposed on small businesses that have done nothing but support the hobby, but I digress...
Short story long, I have recently gotten back into the hobby (@2011) and promptly enlisted a Canadian painter (Vancouver) to paint up some Flesh Tearers to Golden Demon standard to the amount of @ 8000 points thus far and planning on reaching 10k points before it is over. Just wondering if I make the trek to Hamilton if I would be "out of my league" in both points and experience. I would very much love to participate and am including some pics of my army to show someone elses quality...Let me know if I would be welcome or just unqualified to play....I appreciate honesty! Thanks and I love the culture that I always experience in Canada as well as the people!!
