Conclave & Brocon in Limerick, Ireland

Well with Limerick no longer being the murder capital of Europe it seems the locals have decided to hold a tournament in a bid to attract visitors. Ok, two of them. They must be making up for lost time. They're holding the events in the nicest part of the city - out by the University so no fear there.

There's two events on in July. The first is a one day 40k event on the 10th called Conclave out in the Castletroy Park Hotel and this should have all the details.

The second is Brocon but that may be booked out, partly because they have some Cosplayer or pornstar or whatever...all I know is there's some savage model has a site and likes to play dress-up and dress-down on it. Brocon's site should explain a bit more. It's on the 18th of July but word reaches me that it may be sold out already.

Both are 1750 points and ranked events for the Irish ETC team. That doesn't mean anything if you aren't going for the ETC team so don't worry, there won't be any weird rules additions. It's just the Rulebook plus Codices plus FAQ's (not Adepticon's though).

Hopefully we'll get a decent turn out for both as there's already a big contingent from the Real Capital heading up to both.

For Conclave this Saturday there are places left. :) For Brocon there aren't, it's fully booked and the army lists have been submitted already.

Conclave 40k is having registration from 9.30 am til 10.30 am and games are expected to begin at 11 am. That's out in the Castletroy Park Hotel and there'll be a pile of Cork lads in the lobby at about half 10.

Its 1750 points games by the way. If there's any questions that haven't already been answered then send me a PM.
Just finishing off my baal turret. Do you know if extra armour has to be modelled on??

There's going to be lots more confusing stuff there so I hardly think EA on a tank is going to be the biggest of their worries.

I've just about got 3 colours on all of my fellas now. The tanks haven't been repainted either but I'll simply bring what I can.
Nice one. I might just do it for the craic anyway. Nobody said the 3 colours have to match sure so half your army could be different

Oh they will be. If all of them have yellow shoulder pads and squad indicators I'll be delighted. Everything else will be an homogenous blob. :oops:
I'll be seeing a couple of people from here up in Limerick tomorrow morning. There's one or two lads on the forum are travelling up with me and if I remember the camera I'll do a fancy batrep. I didn't manage to get everything finished (fuck all basing done) but everything has 3 colours and weapons are wysiwyg so I'm happy with it until Brocon next week.
after all that worrying about the painting and basing half the armies didn't even have the 3 colours rules and very few were based. all that worry for nout haha
I know. Most of us (Cork lads) made a big push to have our stuff painted and/or based in the last few days and we managed to get it done (I'd no basing though). One of the lads here made a few comments about wanting that to be enforced strictly but that was a minor gripe.

Meant to say that there might be space for Brocon if you're interested. The organisers managed to get a few more tables so there should be space and most of the Irish ETC team are practicing their lists there and there are rumoured to be spot prizes for anyone that beats one of the team...

I'm hoping to get the final colours and basing on the stuff done this week. Happy with how I ended up, especially as I lost my first game badly when I should have done better. Live and learn.

How did your buddies do?
friends did pretty well. better than me on both accounts but on was under 15, I think they got extra points or easier vps for that. I messed up my games by playing almost too defensively. My list is pretty aggressive and I was so I need to move it in your face style.

Brocon I might try and get a ticket. I'll see how I'm going with everything else, work, study all that jazz
Study? You repeating exams or something?

Brocon is this weekend (July 18th) in UL so back to Limerick for you. I've managed to get the TO to hold a few places so if you're interested then let me know as there's approx 50 have their names down already so should be savage (with better prizes than Conclave too).

You do need to pre-submit your list but I can pass you on a guy's to email if you want. The only thing is you'd need to act fast as its proving fucktardedly popular.
this weekend can't sorry. Work. yeah I have a few from last semester to repeat. thanks for the heads up though
Pity, there's a veritable horde of people heading up to it.

The results should be up on Rankings HQ in the next few days aswell so keep your eyes peeled for it. The lads didn't write down who was playing what army but the names and points should all be there anyway.

Got to go and paint some more stuff. There's no rest for the wicked. Good luck with the repeats.
