Warmahordes Escalation League

Postby Errant » Fri Mar 21, 2014 12:28 pm

Quite a few of us it seems are interested in playing so as a gauge of interest who would like to participate in a WMH escalation league next year? Starting date March!

I don't intend this 'league' to be competitive, its sole purpose for me is to get newer players into WMH and bring others back. Everything below are essentially suggestions and up for negotiation. I will not enforce any of it strictly but instead hope to use my experience to make it as enjoyable as possible.

Guidelines

I'm hoping this will be a 4 month league progressing like so (you can decide which of the two game sizes you want to play):

Schedule:

March: Battlebox or 15pts
April: 15pts or 25pts
May: 25pts or 35pts
June: 35pts

Faction & lists:

Players should choose a faction and one of the battleboxes, either the standard one or the alternatives (the Journeyman League document you can get from the Privateer Press website has the alternatives).

Players can use any models they want to expand their lists as the league progresses and swap in/out units between games whenever they like.

I'd like for people to always have their chosen battlebox in all of their lists as a core. This is to keep at least a part of everyones list the same so things dont drastically change between games for newer players. If you feel like playing alternate models ensure that your opponent agrees before the game.

Newer players feel free to ask me for advice for list construction and model purchases. I will try to steer you towards models more commonly used in your faction while being 'competitive' if thats your thing. I won't comment on looks, as my elephants are the best biggrin.gif

Also please DO NOT use Colossals or Gargantuans, regardless of how cool they look/are. They really skew games at these point levels, even more so against players who are new.

I'd like the February to be focused on helping newer players to learn the mechanics. Especially if its a Hordes v Warmachine fight where people will have different core mechanics.

Scenarios:

March: Custom scenario, place a flag marker in the centre of the board. Control for 1pt, dominate for 2. First player to 3pts wins.
April: Close Quarters
May: Close Quarters or Destruction (roll for it)
June: Close Quarters, Destruction or Outflank (roll for it)

League Scoring

Game wins: 3pts
Game loss: 2pts
Also if you manage to paint all the models you used in your lists then let me know for a bonus 2pts at the end of each month.

Maximum points per month is 10.

League End

I'm up for every day except Monday as this is my regular Roleplay night. Gotta say I am loving this escalation league. I'm loosing almost every game, but I'm finding out new things every time I play. Never has an arse kicking been so much fun!
@Binty: I'll give you another game if you like. A chance for some revenge on your chickens.

I'm loving this escalation league too! :)

CJ, can we play the same opponents twice? Is that a silly question? I really want to play this week, come on people, pick a night! :D

I finally picked up some primer to prime my army but it was proper b*****d blowy out today (translation: windy) and I'd need to spray in the garden! I got a Victoria Haley commission painted instead though... can I have points for total and complete immersive obsession?

Is anyone else up for a Wednesday Bash? I've reached my full quota of 10 points but I'm dying to try out some new tactics.

Wednesday sounds good. I'll ask for two tables.

Your chicken seems to be pretty popular around here Dani :D and yes you can play the same person more than once.

I'll be there Wednesday for whoever wants a game. Hopefully my Driller and Gun Bunny Thor will arrive. If not can I proxy them?

Yeah I think we should be able to get 2 games in easily, I'm pretty sure I was the last person who's not played so games should get quicker now.

So Liam, Jake, Dani and me (CJ). Any more for any more?

P.s. Nice work on the logo Dani, has a real Club feel about it now rather than a GW one. :)

If anyone has some time later on this evening (I have a WHFB 2999 pt game in) or on Wednesday, would you mind running through with someone who hasn't played? I will watch a couple of games to not be totally clueless but a practical hands on demo would be handy.

I'm happy to do that on Wednesday, thou I'm still learning a lot of the finer points myself so if you don't mind a game where both of us check the rhulbook every so often I can play you.

I don't have any minus other than my own though at the moment.

I'll be in London this Saturday for a Hardcore tournament, I can check the Dark Sphere shop for Skarlocks or anything else that you (or anyone else) may want.

p.s. I don't mind people using proxys. At this point it might be better to experiment.
