A question from the Tourney

Post  Planes on Sun Jun 24, 2012 12:04 pm

Does anyone know where to find the entry in the IG codex or general rules for the Str 8 melee grenades? They kinda ate up some of my scarabs, and I just wanted to take a closer look at it, as I didn't realize IG got that. I didn't ask to look in the tourney, as the match was already dragging and I didn't want to be making it go any slower myself.

WTF? Did Dom use melta-bombs on your Scarabs.

Dom, we're going to have to make you get 10/10 on a rules quiz before you signup for future tournaments.

It was something Str 8 AP --, Beau came over to check it out when he was asking about it. It likely wouldn't have made a difference in the long run, as after melee my scarabs were clustered and were on the wrong end of an ordinance barrage. In all truth, I really should have charged the Vendetta instead, as that flaming hulk is what sent us to the first tie breaker.

There is no such thing as str 8 melee grenades.. No idea whats happening there.

You can only use meltas against vehicles.. Like marknsaid maybe he was using these?

Guard cant even get a str 8 fist

This is kinda why I am asking where to find said entry. Kinda miffed we weren't able to go the full game, turn 4 would have been juicy, my warriors were going to charge his Penal Conscripts.

He was usimg krak grenades. They were Str 6, vs your T3 so wound on 2+, insta-kill.

I let him use them (like you would against a Walker) for pretty much the same reason you gave. (I was trying to keep the game moving, also the reason I made the call with the "I have Line of Sight" arguement.)

Rereading things last night, I should've disallowed it.


Side note: I think Dom did well (he keep things moving decently the first 2 games.) I have a nephew with Asperger's and ADHD, so I can sympathize with where Dom's at.

That said, his behavior in the 3rd round was atrocious. Between the stalling, the near temper tantrum when things did not go well in the first round, and near constant arguing of rules.... Dom, please do not sign up the next tournament I run.

Personally, I would be more sympathetic to the Asperger's argument if I were not also within it's spectrum.

There's a difference there Tom, you're much more easy going and put a lot of effort into learning the rules, you're also aware of how your codex works. As a community, we have a lot of patience, and we're willing to help Dom learn the game, but a tournament is a much more "serious" gaming environment, and it's not fair for people who pay-to-play to have to play Dom.

(Sorry Dom buddy, it's just how it is. Wait for 6th to come out, put some real solid effort into learning the rules, and once you've got it down we'll give you another shot).

When Tim used to run the McGuires (sp?) tournaments, he had a "rules quiz" it was 10 basic rules questions, you got one point towards your overall score for answering each question correctly. When we have our "Welcome to 6th" tournament, we'll do something like that.

I'd be very happy to run a "Welcome to 6th" Tournament sometime in November ish. That's a couple months after the box set hits and gives everyone a chance to review the rules and GW a chance to publish a FAQ.

Also a sweet chance for the new starter set to drop and everyone get it built:)
