We here are Berks-PA Gaming Club will be hosting our second round of Berks Spring Assault. Last year was an amazing success, despite some issues on planning, as we were new to hosting tournaments. We have a bigger location, better support and lots of fun being planned this year.
Sportsmanship will be key to scoring this year, as much as last year. Details will be posted once we finalize all tournament information.
For now we can tell you this:
1,000 point Warhammer 40K armies from all standard codex and Chapter approved allowed
Games will be played on 4' x 4' tables, so expect a lot of bloody action! This is Berks Spring ASSAULT!
You will need Six (6) copies of your army list: 1 for the Tournament Ogranizer (me), 1 for you , and 1 copy for each of your opponents. If your list is not legal, you will lose points, be asked to leave, or have your scores adjusted as we see fit.
You will need a copy of the 40K rule book, your codex, all dice and templates and rules associated with your army.
We will play 2 rounds, break for lunch and play 2 more games.
Lunch will be included with your entry fee
We will have 9 prizes available: Best overall, (1, 2, 3), Best Sportsman (1, 2, 3), Best Appearance (1, 2, 3).
We will also recognize Army Domination by best in each codex with a minor prize from one of our sponsors.
We will operate on a much tighter schedule this year and NOT use the same problematic tournament program we had last year, so that things will run a lot smoother.
Last year we had 45 people show up, 38 were players. We will have the capablities to going to 50-60 players this year if needed. we are only 2 blocks away from where the tournament was held last year at the Country Inn & Suites hotel.
I got this email from MiniWarGaming and I had to laugh. It is an advertisement for shopping for Valentines Day. The best part is how it is written. I really got a chuckle out of that and enjoyed the 'thought' so much that I am copying it to my blog.
This is the email I got from them, and it is true, they are running a sale on Battleforces:
Hey, Mike. Are you looking for that perfect Valentine's gift for your significant other? Can't figure out what to get her (or him)? Forget chocolates, flowers, and perfume - all those say are "I only bought you this because it is Valentine's day!"
Instead, show her how much you care by buying something that you would really want to keep yourself. Something that says, "Let's spend more time together assembling and painting miniatures!" Something that says, "I love you." This weekend, all that is possible with our super-awesome 40k Battleforce and Fantasy Battalion 25% off Valentine's Day Sale!
All 40k Battleforces and Fantasy Battalions will be marked down to 25% off of the normal retail price.
This sale starts tomorrow, Friday, February 11th and ends on Monday, February 14th (at noon Eastern time).
I'm a 30-something gamer who's been involved in gaming for many years, in fact for over 25+ years in a variety of games, and have shifted from RPGs to mainly table top wargaming. I do still participate in an online version of GURPS RPG with friends around the USA, as well as playing some games on the computer.
Currently I am also expanding into running Warhammer 40K tournaments and playing 40K competetively, continue to expand our game club and network, and just enjoy life.
Other games I currently play are: Blood Bowl, Warhammer Fantasy Battles, Flames of War, GURPS RPG, and Battletech.
Former games I used to play inlcude: Dungeons and Dragons, Star Wars RPG (West End Games, Rolemaster RPG, Magic the Gathering CCG, Paranoia, Various board games, Star Frontiers, and Marvel Heroes.
