I work until 5, so I won't be able to attend the meeting. But if you guys are going to be there, does anyone want to get a few practice games in, and fill me in on what was said in the meeting? Doesn't necessarily need to be our 500 point list. I can be there around 6pm.

I also plan on taking pictures of each player and I will be making up a spread sheet to keep score for each player that will accompany each picture. This way every one knowes who every one else is and knowes what they look like

I'm hoping to get there by 5:30 depending on traffic. Hopefully I don't miss you.

Not going to make it this Friday, but I do have questions about the league that maybe people can discuss during the meeting:

Can we play a league game before we finish painting the models for whatever point level we're at?

If I come up with a list for the 500pt level, are those models/units locked in when we move onto the next point's level?

This is what Steve posted from the other thread on this :


"Starting Jan 1st you have 1 month to paint 500 points. From the last day of Jan to the last day of the first week in feb players will have the opritunity to play games for an optimal game score and have armies painted for the late paint score.

Armies must be painted no latter than Feb 3rd for a full paint score. Any army not fully painted by Feb 10th will be considered not done and no points will be awarded."

So, it looks like we can start playing games that count towards our score between Jan 31st and Feb 11th. Although like it says above, for a full paint score armies must be fully painted by Feb 3rd. So it sounds like you could play games between Jan 31st and Feb 2nd with a partially painted army and still potentially receive full points for the game if you win, but your paint score will begin being assessed on the 3rd.

And that's a real good question about our 500pts being locked in after the first round. Can anyone shed some light on this?

Thanks dude, I missed that part of his post.

And another question: Can we dig up some special missions for the league? Doing a special 2v2 matchup would also be pretty fun.

while I dont see a problem with playing before your army is painted its strongly encouraged for you to only play on the last week so that you play with a fully painted army. The fear I have is that if you play with out paint you may become discuraged from keep painting your army by the deadline.

while it is recomended you keep the current 500 points you start with I dont see any reason why you can not change it up. You WILL need to fully paint what ever it is you change by the deadline.

As for special missions if any one cares to find some we can discuss it at the first meeting Friday. If you can not attend dont worry ill post what was discussed

You know what might be a great idea? Battle Reports! with Pictures! How about giving a bonus "effort" point for writing and posting a WELL WRITTEN battle report of your match (pictures would be awesome too!)? A point could be given to both the person writing it and that person's opponent.
