Worlds Gaming Day Update

Next Sunday is the Worlds Gaming Day, which is approaching at a fast rate of knots.  First up, is that tickets are no longer available for this event.  With an average of 18 players in all three tournaments, it’s going to be a busy day.

Another thing that is still ongoing, is prize support/donations to the event; which we have just had another fantastic donation from KR Multicase.  I can attest to the quality of these cases, having had an Aquila one for nearly 2 years.  It was my main WM/H for a long while, until the models acquired outgrew the case itself.  That isn’t to say it is sitting gathering dust though, it is still being used weekly, to transport primed/semi painted minis to the shop or the club.  With the softer foam, it doesn’t rub off the paint; so I don’t need to keep retouching the paint.

So with support from Worlds at WarFlorian Stitz and Privateer Press, this event is shaping up to be a great day for everyone.

Upcoming Events

26th August – Intrepidations, Perth 35pts SR2012 – Once again up to blustery Perth for a tournament. Hoping to have Gapsy3 ready by then, but if not I’ll fall back to my trusted Morty and A N Other caster.

8th Sept – ELG, Edinburgh 35pt SR2012. This will be part of a slow grow league that ELG are running just now. While they are trying to keep it within the club, they have opened it up to non-members. If your interested, visit the site – Edinburgh League of Gamers

9th Sept – Worlds at War, Livingston – 50pt SR2012 (2 list, D&C & Chess Clock) This will be the first time I have run this format, but it looked really interesting when I saw it at the ETC’s.

Buses

Ok, you’re probably thinking I have finally lost it.  What has buses got to do with WM/H?  Well it’s all to do with the old say “If you wait long enough, three will come along”, or at least something like that anyway.

Having just finished the April Annihilation event, I am now working feverishly on the Worlds Gaming Day event.  As this is a charity event, I have started to look for donations for a raffle or something similar; so we can raise even more money for the chosen charity of the British Legion.  Only just started today, but already we have a donation offer from someone; who we will reveal shortly.

There is still time to get tickets for this event, no matter what system you play; as there is going to be Flames of War, Warmachine/Hordes and WH 40K.  Just head over to the Worlds at War website for more details.

Warmahorde Worlds Event

Frank, our local mad gaming store owner (has to mad, he lets me in the shop); asked me about the possibility of running a combined event with Flames of War.  Now while the prospect of a Deathjack mauling a Tiger tank, has certain appeal; this wasn’t what he meant.

So over the last month or so, we have been hunting out locations and working on ideas for the event.  Today we revealed our madness to the light of day.  On 20th May 2012, Worlds Gaming Day will be born.  Running at the same time, it will be a 24 player Flames of War tournament and a 36 player tournament.  It will be a charity event, with monies raised going to the British Legion.

For the Warmahorde Worlds side of things, I wanted something completely different.  Using SR2012, the following format will be used.

If there is less than 16 players – 4 rounds, more than 16 players – 5 rounds.

First 3 or 4 rounds (depending on numbers) will be 35 pts, character restricted; with two army lists.  The final round (round 4 or 5), will be ONE (1) 50pt,  non-character restricted list.  This means players can use anything they like, in an All or Nothing last game.  This will be a big step up for me, but I am already looking forward to it.
