I have 15 people now. So 1 more spot open! and I am hoping to have it run over a few days, if there are problems with schedules I'll hopefully sort them out without hassle. So for example Handbag, I'll message you, and say are you free on wed? and message KD as well (assuming she's your matchup) if your both free, there you go. Game on.

I smashed that fucker with a crappy gunline guard army (40 inch conscript squad lined along the back stopped his scouts coming on, then crammed in dozens of las and rough riders... pods flopped in... and flopped, scouts had no options - game over) he quit on turn 2. All hype and no ability.

Then I played 20 odd games with nidzilla (old codex) and won them all. The standard on Vassal was so shit back then it was hardly worth considering victories.

He went by Lemartes I think.

Well, to a GT player... I had some good games there. Won more than I lost. I remember playing against an Ork army with the PDF Blood Angel Codex. My army was basically entirely Assault Marines with a single squad of Devastators. The Orks were basically nothing but Boyz and Big Guns plus Ghaz. I don't know how I pulled it off.

Iain, how many rounds will this tourney be? Since every one plays every one else only once. Wouldn't that mean there is only one round. With that said, and missions will be determined on a round by round basis. Will that mean that there will only be 1 mission for the entire tourney?

I regularly get the crapped kicked out of me on Vassal :p

But I suppose that tends to happen when you run a Thousand son/Bike heavy CSM list

Can people post the results up here? I'd be interested in the bat reps from this.

I should throw together an Heresy Vassal ELO ladder.

You might wanna expand on that, its a legitimate question. In fact you might wanna lay out in more detail how this is gonna go down, including estimated at worst specific at best dates and time limits as to the rounds.

If you need any help organizing this I'm sure not just me but many others (ahem K to the D) with experience in running campaigns can aid you. It might be a bit optimistic to think that nothing will go wrong because something always does with any organized events. The main one on my mind is people who've signed up simply not being on for the next week, giving 'em a PM the day before they need to be doing their match will maximize the chances of no shows. With a 16 player tournament this is a real issue.

Holla if you need us.

Yeah a PM the day before will mean you get no shows for probably half or more of the matches from one or both of the players. Thats just a estimate based on doing this kinda thing before.
