Ok some of you will know, but i execpt most will not, that there is a European Team Tournament been organised as we speak.

The UK is currently sending 1 team (there may/may not be more if the UK "splits into team scotland, wales etc) of 8 to poland in August for 3 days of 0k madness. Countries from around europe are sending thie best, and i mean the best (i know the german team is been capt by Simon Oerding aka Kaiser Cheese. This guy is probably the best player in the world!).

One of my Flame On mates (anathema) is the UK organiser and Capt (which means he automatically gets a place on the team btw). He is looking to have a qaulifing event organised in the not so distant future to allow hopefuls to compete to win a place on the team that flys out to Poland to represent to UK.

To say it wil be one of the best and most prestigious things you can do as a wargamer probably goes without saying (but i said it anyway :lol: ).

The basic set up will be 6/7 games of 40k played at a slightly altered Gamma level, at 1850pts an army using all the current codex armies and a few CA ones (like kroot mercs i believe).

The criteria to been able to go (so basically been able to go to the qualifiers) is:

FULLY painted, modeled and bases 40k army at 1850pts.
The money and the commitment to be able to pay your own way over to poland - thats gonna ge about £200 or so i recon. Maybe more.
You must be 18 years or older - sorry young uns can't come due to the involved responsibility no-one is prepared to take on.
You must want to have a good time, lots of fun and represent the UK in the best possbile manner.
You also must be able to drink and be prepared to do silly things and maybe even wear a ridiculous team uniform.... TBA.

For those who are interested let me no here or via PM. When i get hold of a rules pack for the ETT and the qualifier i will let you all know.

The date is a week before my TPS exams - the hardest financial exams you can do. Otherwise i'd be well in there for beer, silliness and kickin some euro ass. unfortunately, while passing means a hideously good pay rise, the flipside is that if i fail one i get the sack.

next year fer shure.

Just to add to what Skcuzzlebumm said, there is also a Welsh team and I believe a Scottish team that are looking for players. If anyone is interested in joining the Welsh team could you please PM me and I will put forward your name to the team captain.

Thanks

Well i'm back to thinking that taking my nids will be the best option as there are enough marine players wanting to be in the team.
This is the list i'm thinking of taking:

tyrant: wings, +1WS, +1I, +1S, Implant, Scything Talons, twin devourer and flesh hooks [182]

4 warriors: leaping, carapace, I5, scything, rending [152]

Lictor [80]

14 Hormaguants: +1S [168]
14 Hormaguants: +1S [168]
14 Hormaguants: +1S [168]
12 Termaguants [72]
12 Termaguants [72]
8 Ripper Swarms: Leaping, +1BS, Spinefists [128]

Ravener [40]
Ravener [40]

Fex: VC and Strangler, +1BS [148]
Fex: VC and Strangler, +1BS [148]
2 Zoanthropes: Warpblast and Synapse [130]

total = 1848

Its basically an evolution of my horde list but i've decided to include some TMC's in there (i aint painted any yet so will give me something new to do).
The Flytyrant is a subsitute for the Broodlord and his retinue. Ok doesn't dish out as much as they do but is more mobile and has the flexibility of the 6 devourer shots to help bring down spesky speeders and soften the ranks.
The Fex's give me some reach against opposing armour which there will no doubt be more in the higher points value.
The Rippers are a little wild card, i have 100 ripper models at home from all the various nid sprues i have bought over the years. Wanna make use of them bascially. Lepaing gives them much needed reach to get into CC and pump out thier 4 attacks per base (so 32 in all), while the spinefists let them soften the enemy before the attack (24 S3 Twinlinked shots, not great but its a dead marine which is what the upgrade costs).
All in all its bascially a balance between guant horde and TMC big boys.

However the Scottish team is still open to people wanting to go! So if there are any able bodied Scotsmen part of this forum who are willing to commit to going to Poland to give old Johnny foreigner a damn good thrashing, just let me know.
