I have a couple lists I'm testing but 42 points is hard. You can't just add 7 points to 35, or subtract 8 from 50.

My goal was to have 2 35 point lists finally fully painted for PAX (I just started Trolls around xmas) but there's almost no way I'm going to have everything painted in time for this, since I'm pretty much using different lists entirely. There's some overlap, but I don't want to rush the Party Wagon.

There is no need to rush with painting. While it's encourage, it's not required and we would all agree, it's better to wait for a badass paint job than one the painter is not satisfied with.

definitely don't rush.  Once things are "done" they very often are done.

OK guys...  how would it be for me to show up to this, not knowing how to play very well yet?  I can't make the event on the 23rd so I'm mulling showing up to this instead just to get my day of gaming in.  I'm fine with the losing... but... would it be disruptive to have a player who maybe isn't rock solid on the rules yet?

The only downside is that often rules will need to be explained to you, which means the clock is going to have to be stopped or flipped over to your time while it is being explained to you.  This can often result in you losing significant time(depending on how much you need explained).  So you might get clocked more often than an average player, or might feel rushed due to this.  But if you are ok with it, I doubt any of the regulars would have a huge issue with it.

Or maybe you'll just get beat really fast and the clock won't be an issue!

As long as you dont think you'll be upset about losing to the clock, you should be fine.

You don't need to, but shooting me an email can't hurt.

This event is shaping up to have a pretty solid turnout.

Hoping I can make this, may only have one list though.

Yeah! It's great to see considering how much work the community has put in to building tables, terrain, organizing, promotion... Seeing people excited and getting to meet new players makes all of that extra worth it.

How often are tournaments planned at the store? Also, any change of getting 50 point events?
