Re: Scenarios

"Against my will, I'm gonna knock it up another notch."



BAM!

I'll plan for 5 scenarios. I'll probably post the scenario drafts online again, because the collaborative effort last time was really worth it.

If there's one thing I know, most wargamers do not like surprises or lame scenarios. Amirite, Ard Boyz tournament? Oh, sorry. You're not here anymore. BURN.

Ahh 500 pts my arch nemesis. I suck at building small forces cause I can never get it right.

Man, it's amazing how little you can fit into 500pts.... should be fun.  I could see these games going very fast.

Yea they will be quick sometimes too quick for my brain to comprehend.  A couple bad rolls will destroy your game plan with 500 pts fielded

A 500pt force of vanilla marines is especially tough!  The two troop choices are pretty pricey, no points left for pricey gimmicks... I think the trick here is going to be co-ordination with a good teamate who can bring what you lack.  Of course, that is still tough for vanilla marines because they lack alot at 500.  

But, I bet almost 100% of the armies will be painted!

I am assuming that we are going to have to field the required HQ and 2 troops choice at a minimum

I would suspect  that it will be "half a FOC" as has been the norm in other team tournaments (of larger sizes).  What do you think Chase?  (don't mean to rush you hehe, and thanks for the sneak preview)

Quick question:  As you guys can probably tell I play a lot of Blood Angels, I have a ThunderFire Cannon but its not listed in the Codex but it is in the Codex: Space Marines am I still allowed to use it for my army as long as I use the appropriate Codex?

 That should be a requirement

I agree with you, I have been busting my hump trying to get all of my stuff primed and painted over the last two weeks.

Only if you want to be playing them as vanilla space marines.

It can be dangerous to assume.  Not bad, just potentially dangerous.

Hmm... If I'm being honest, I haven't decided yet.  The topic has been touched upon briefly but that's about it.
