1500 sounds like alot of fun to me, make for a more epic feel to our wee event i reckon. I remember us trying out some house rules a while ago xelee do you think we will put some forward for this?

Hi MoriOgre - I think we want to keep things relatively uncomplicated with extra rules but there is one rule that they used at a GW event that I think helps the game heaps:

"Any Hero with at least one might point remaining may 'Will of Iron' for free."

It does help stop spellcasting from being too OTT. We could at least use that, if everyone is happy with it.

One of Martin's big concerns with points totals was to give good players (the faction, not the skill-level...) more scope to challenge some of the Evil combos via allies. It has made me more keen to play as Evil as it will be pretty cool to have a couple of monsters along with the core of my army.

Cheers

Good armies can already get allies though, right? Or are allies normally disallowed in WoTR tournies?

I'm probably missing something obvious here...

No you aren't missing anything - it is just that the 25% allies allowance is incredibly friendly to under-costed heroes (Martin pointed out his own Durbuurz - 70pts! I see a LOT of Druzhag's in people's armies and 250pts allows two Wraiths) but still prevents a lot of the more expensive heroes - Say Gandalf the White at 300pts.

So while I like smaller games, I can see the point that the points total might tie people's hands a little. I think it is a good opportunity to crack out the models we think are cool but don't take when being all efficient for 1000pts. Gandalf the White, Wraiths on Fellbeasts, my creative Gulhavar proxy.... :wink:

We should probably reserve the right to review some of the Battlehosts (Gorogorth Horde? The Mordor Royal Airforce?) but I don't think we need to restrict anything else and we can pretty much play the game as the designers intended. Or something. :lol:

Just a note, this is progressing (slowly) and I haven't just left it. :)

One additional possibility might be to slot us in as one of the regular series of games that Tim likes to run in his store. It would require the number of players to be about six (only three tables) and for us to always be able to have a fully painted matchup (at least 4 players with fully painted armies) for his board out where customers can see.

He did say it would be a good thing - and he has WOTR armies that he makes available to players for a token fee. I'd like to do it there if I can, since he has always supported events, has made the effort to maintain a decent gaming space, and even put on a small WOTR one at his old store. Numbers currently look about right for that but if we have more then it will be the SAS Club.

True, but I have a McDs very close! If your playing at the Cavs your playing on my tabletops and cloth and a fair amount of my terrain anyway.

By the way no fee for someone to borrowing an army if there is a need. I will be running a LOTR strategy (not WOTR) tourney within the next couple of weeks either way.

Cheers

Tim

Awesome, a bidding war for the rights to host the prestigious WOTR, it's like the Olympics... as much as wargaming can be like physical exercise :lol:

Thanks for your offer, Tim. It is helpful and I would like to do that if it is agreeable to everyone and we fit! If we are doing this outside an event, which seems to be the preference, then one advantage of a store is that it makes this a little bit of a weekend demo for LOTR and WOTR too.
