[WHFB] Bournemouth Brawl

Postby Warren0101 » Fri May 02, 2014 12:45 pm

Hey guys

So I've signed up for the Bournemouth brawl on Sunday and I've been drawn first round against Dan Clarke and his Ogres...

Is he the guy who plays really slow? Will I have to moan regularly at him???

Well, slow play against Lizardmen is generally the worst thing you can do, unless he has the big gutstar with the reflective banner etc. if he has then I won't tolerate slow play!

Best of luck, hopefully he's stopped being an absolute arseh*le ... but I highly doubt it.

Just be aware that he is one of the two event organisers (himself and Andy Matthews), as well as one of the referees....and they're both friends. If in doubt ask for the other one/someone impartial to rule. Likewise make sure he doesn't endlessly nudge his models forwards all game / deploy them too close together than subsequently move everything around as it doesn't fit anymore ... once most of your army is down.

At the second I'm just not able to make Tuesdays, so I've been settling for filling in with some Warmachine on Wednesdays instead.

How many BV are in Bournmouth? Remember a minimum of 4 must attend the event! I will gladly hand over the mighty Golden Samurai to a deserving combatant. Well at least for someone to hold until I win it back!

Oh and re Dan Clark. Clarify with him what the symbols on his dice represent, he has a mixed pile. He likes to roll his dice into the pile of his extra dice, then pick up a handful mumbling "X" amount of hits/wounds/armour saves -depending on what he needs at the time. This smooth action is done very quickly and, if he can manage it, behind an obstacle of some kind to obstruct your view. With ogres he shouldn't have too many units to faff around with.

He has got such a bad reputation that it would seem he is only welcome at tournaments that he is running. Good luck and I genuinely mean that.

Ahh good info with the dice!! I will ensure he rolls in clear view of me! And will ensure I understand his symbols! Seems I've got a lot to watch out for!!

Sounds like I may need I bring the stick of authority!!

Im playing HE... Again... :((( Hopefully HE with dragons, griffons, Phoenixes, etc. I asked organiser to not draw us against each other in the first battle. If Vanguardians will have to play each other in second or third battle we can swap tables if possible.

Slawek, the first draft of the draw had you against Russ for some reason... but I asked him to re-draw it as you were club mates (he didn't know all the various people were actually Vanguard)

As there isn't a Bournemouth Brawl thread, I may as well put the results list here (can't have it as an image as it is wider than the forum):

Well done Rossi!

Had a really good day, each game was a blood bath apart from the last when the dice gods failed me!

I picked up some of those bent black sun dice aswel!

Is it normal for people to enter tournaments they are organising and ref'ing? (I'm well out of touch with these sort of things)

Usually only to make up numbers (in the case of an odd number of players), or if it's just an off the cuff/small local event. In most cases you don't have enough time to do all of the data collation and play at the same time, but this is why we have minions to do the entry :mrgreen:

If it wasn't for the company of Rossi, Russ and Slawek I would have had a much worse day! Pretty sure I was still pretty steaming for the morning.... I really need to not go out before a tournament!!!

Loosing to Dan was a low in a my Warhammer career!! Lol I made a big mistake at the start because I forgot man eaters has S5 so S7 with great weapons. My dice were awful, I almost brought it back on the end but he used his hell heart when I had throne of vines up and rolled a 1... This was the turn I engaged his main unit so by not getting the toughness buff up I was I only T4 not T8... Game lost!

2nd game it was MSU dark elves with a dragon, he cleared my chaff quickly and I didn't kill enough. This is one of the lists I really struggled against at the moment.

3rd game I played Lizzie's and got a 20-0 and got my objective. This game was magic hammer, I won by a comet and a dwellers basically!

Fun day all in all though. Although this was my worst performance at a tournament to date! I definitely wasn't used to the new list and I should have worked the comp score much better, some minor changes could face made me Comp 3 not 0 which would have helped no end!!
