2013 Team Tourney

Post  Roland on Sat Nov 24, 2012 11:33 am

January 2013 1500 POINT TEAM TOURNAMENT

OVERVIEW
• Over the course of the day your team will play a total of 6 games, over three rounds. Each round you will pair up with a different teammate to take on another teams pairing. You may not play with the same teammate twice. You are free to decide which pairings play together in a given round, but keep in mind that pair cannot play together again.
• Ex. Andy, Bob, Chuck and Dave form a team. In the first round Andy and Chuck form one team and Bob and Dave play another. In round two they see they are playing against a tough opponent in one game and have Dave and Chuck (their best two players) play that game, while Andy and Bob play the other. In the last round Andy and Dave must pair up and Bob and Chuck must as well.
• Teams will follow the rules for allies in all games. (So if you want to play Tyranids, your whole team is Tyranids.) will be treated as allies of convience in all cases.
• For purposes of declaring attacks, assaults, etc. a TEAM as a whole should declare assaults, shooting attacks, and the like, as if they were a single player. (For example, both players must declare all assaults before actually resolving any; IG players must issue orders before their teammate shoots, etc.)

MODELS/PAINTING
• All models should be WYSIWYG, and be painted to tournament standard (3 colour minimum and (at minimum) a painted base.
• “Counts-as” armies are fine, as long as units are readily identifiable as the unit they are intended to represent.
• Each team should also bring six (6) objective markers

RULES
• The tournament will begin on Saturday, January 26th at 10:00 AM at Dragon’s Den.
• Teams will consist of 4 players, each with a separate army. Teams should submit their team name, members and an army list for each army at least two week before the tournament. $40/team.
• Armies will consist of 750 points using the following force organization chart
o 1 Headquarters
o 2-3 Troops
o 0-1 Elite
o 0-1 Fast Attack
o 0-1 Heavy Support
o Fortifications are split between teams. Each player pays half the cost (rounding up), and it is used in all games. Ex. You take an Aegis line w/ Quad gun. Each player pays 50 pts and your team will have the Aegis line in each game.
o Any choices that don’t take up a place in the Force Organization chart are to be used as per their rules in their respective codices, and are not affected by the restrictions stated above for other types of choice (Space Marine Command Squads, CSM Chaos Spawn and Summoned Daemons etc.)
• Forge World/Imperial Armour units and rules may be used (so you can play a Renegades and Heretics army, or use a Repressor in your SoB, for example), provided an appropriate models is used (i.e. either an actual FW model, or a suitable conversion). NO EXPERIMENTAL OR HORUS HERESY UNITS.
• All GW FAQ’s apply.
• Special/Unique/Named characters may be used, provided their rules allow them to be used in armies of 1500 points or less.
• Each round you will play a different team and pair up with a different team member randomly determined by the tournament organizer. Each player will have a warlord.
• Please try to provide your own rulebook, codex, dice, templates, pen/pencil, calculator, laptop, alter to the Dark Gods, or whatever you feel you need during the course of play. Spares may or may not be available, and are not guaranteed to NOT be cursed.
• Please provide an army list to the judges beforehand (at least a week prior to the tournament). You are responsible for providing 2 printed copies of your army list, one for your use, and one for your opponents use.
• In order for the tournament to keep on schedule, all players should drop their dice and stop playing when time is called- no exceptions. Please be aware of the time you have left and do not start a round you cannot finish. A warning will be provided at 15 and 5 minutes remaining.

I am up for it.

Maybe some other bug players wanna get in on it, or an evil *finger pointing at mouth* alliance.

Scott, I think nids actual have an advantage here. They will by default be an extra primary detachment, meaning they they grant synapse to each other, etc.

why not just make it so all armies are allies of convenience? it would let more people play what they want otherwise its rather restrictive and it evens the playing field between codex's who don't have a bromance with everyone (here's looking at you space marines...).

dude. this popped up on flickr. this would me something pretty kickass to display which team wins each team tournament. could have the overall winner team's name added each team tourney.

dude said it's basecoated black, then wet brushed tin bitz, followed by a drybrush of brass scorpion.

i think you could make a nice one with the 25th anniversary crimson fist guy with a ring of dead orks around him. that would be a pretty nice "we're number 1!" kinda trophy.

if someone else can take care of finding where we could get a nice plinth, and the descriptive plaque etching thingy, i'd volunteer to make the display that goes on top. though i think paz has the best skills out of all of us in conversion work and could do a better job.

How the hell are you supposed to "forge a narrative" with craziness like that?

My thought is fun vs narrative. It would be cool if everyone brought armies that worked together, but not everyone has that... Say someone wants to play tyranids but no one else does. With the narritive setup it sucks to be them. I'm just voicing a concern that's all.

Our possible team from Regina is definitely boned if we have to use the allies chart. I only own a Tyranid army and a Forgeworld World Eaters army now while my other team mates only own loyalist marines. I dont see Grey Knights and Space Wolves suddenly deciding that the boys in red and brass are welcome back into the Imperium nor do I think my Berzerkers would pass up that opportunity to make Khorne happy narrative wise. But it would still be fun to play as a team!

okay, RULES CHANGE:

All teammates are treated as ALLIES OF CONVIENCE. Any 2 armies may ally.

Note this mean even if you have 2 armies from the same codex, their abilities will have no effect on each other.
