Remember the league starts tomorrow everyone! $10 if you have not already paid or purchased a starter or $100 of product from our sponsor Hobby Hub. Just a reminder on the scoring, each week: 1pt for playing at least 1 game, 1pt for winning a game, 1pt for painting something new that you used that week, 1 pt for playing someone you have not played before in a league game. There will be one other points that changes week by week, the first week will be 1 pt for head-butting an enemy model. Scenario for the first week is mangled metal. Kill all the opponents Warbeasts/Warjacks to win.

BTW to make the words more readable, if you still have it as a PSD file, add a single white layer between the text and background. Then adjust the opacity until you have a nice contrast between background and text.

Going into week 2 of the league, this week the mission will be Destruction from the Steamroller 2014 mission packet available here: http://privateerpress.com/organized-play/steamroller-tournamentsI will be showing up as early as possible (probably around 6:30) with copies of the mission and spare objective bases and zone for those who don't have their own yet. If you have your own please bring along two objectives and a rectangular zone. This week the bonus point will be for scoring at least 1 control point. If you feel you want more time to get to grips with the basics you are free to play mangled metal (the same mission as last week) and it will still count towards your league results.

Hooch 15
Keith 15
James S 14
Leslie 14
Tony 14
Garth 11
Steven 11
Scott 10
James G 10
Tim 10

Nathan 7
Alex 2

Week 4 we move up to 25pts! This week we will be playing scenario 3: Balance of power. The bonus point will be to come fully prepared to play, with your own flags, zone and copy of the mission. After this week it will be assumed that people are able to supply these things themselves, and I will only be bringing a couple of backup copies. Flags/objectives do no have to be painted, but if you decide to model/paint them they can count for your painting point for the week. Remember that for a unit to count for the painting point the whole unit needs to be painted. I'll also be reseting the new opponent point to "new opponent at this point level", as lots of people have been getting into the spirit of the league and playing heaps of games each week. Good work guys!

nother successful week of the league has rolled by and it's been great seeing peoples armies take shape. Next weeks bonus point will be for knocking down your opponents Warcaster/Warlock with a power attack from a Warjack/Warbeast. If your opponents Warcaster/Warlock is immune to knockdown (or already knocked down from something else) then you can get the point by performing any power attack on that Warcaster/Warlock or causing a collateral damage roll on them (either must be from a Warjack/Warbeast not a spell or ability on something).
The mission for next Thursday is scenario 5: Close quarters.

Scores for week 5:
Keith 25
Tony 24
Leslie 22
James S 21
Hooch 20
James G 19
Tim 19
Ariel 17
Steven 17
Jody 16
Scott 15
Garth 14
Paul 12
Nathan 10
Nick 9

Week 6 of the league has just finished and so has the 25pt section. Next week is 35pts which is the size of a small tournament!

Keith 30
Tony 29
Leslie 27
Hooch 24
Tim 23
James G 22
Ariel 21
James S 21
Jody 20
Steven 20
Garth 17
Scott 15
Paul 14
Nick 12
Brody 10
Nathan 10

The bonus point for week 7 will test your speed and versatility as a player, to get the point you need to complete two 35pt games at club night, each with a different Warcaster/Warlock! Anyone obviously throwing a game to speed things up won't be awarded the point, this one will rely a bit on the integrity of the players to play by the spirit of the rule but I'm confident we'll have no dramas. The scenario is #6: two fronts.

The bonus points for weeks 8 & 9 are both painting related so I'm going to spell them out now incase people need to make any last minute orders. Week 8 bonus point as described previously is to paint a full unit, 10 models for small bases, 6 for medium or 5 for large. If you have a 5 model medium based unit you want to paint you are aloud to paint a medium based solo for the 6th model.
Week 9 bonus point will be to compete in the leagues best painted vote. To do this you need to have your 35pt army fully painted and based. You need to have your game finished by 9:00pm so we can all vote together. Then you will each get a slip of paper to cast your secret vote on which persons league army you think is the best painted. The result will be announced the following week along with the rest of the league prizegiving. There will be a random participation prize, but if you're not there it will be redrawn so make sure you attend.

A note on ties: in the event of a tie in league scores going into week 9 I will be asking the tied players to play against each other in the final week. Either player may choose to decline but if they do the other player wins any resulting ties with the person who declined. Any ties after week 9 results are in will be ignored unless it's for 1st place, in which case painting votes will be first tiebreaker.

James S 21

Week 8 bonus point as described previously is to paint a full unit, 10 models for small bases, 6 for medium or 5 for large. If you have a 5 model medium based unit you want to paint you are aloud to paint a medium based solo for the 6th model.
We will be skipping ahead in the Steamroller 2014 pack this week to scenario 9: Incursion. This is an important mission that tests your ability to adapt on the fly when a flag is removed from the board.

Bonus point is to enter and vote in the best painted award. You'll need a 35pt fully painted and based army to enter. You don't need an entry to be allowed a vote. After that is prize giving, we have generous prizes from Hobby Hub for 1st, 2nd, 3rd, best painted and a random spot prize. The spot prize can only be won by someone who has played at least 5 weeks and is attending prizegiving.
Don't forget that it's your last chance to take advantage of Hobby Hubs sweet league discount, so get those orders in before the league is done!
