Regarding Retribution 2013 TICKETS NOW ON SALE

Post by poi » Sat Aug 17, 2013 3:55 pm

Tickets now on sale for The Sad Muppet Society's annual Warhammer tourney

You will be playing 4 games of Warhammer Fantasy on Saturday 2nd November 2013.
£16 entry.

Two games at 1,000 points and two games at 2,400 points.
You will need two lists. Everything from your 1,000 points list must appear in your 2,400 points list.
You can add to units, you may not remove anything.
All the games will carry equal weight in your final tournament points.

Prizes for 1st, 2nd, 3rd, best army, most sporting and, of course, the coveted bottom of the table foam sword! (Or something else appropriately incapable of injuring anyone)

Only two kinds of mysterious scenery will be used, woods and waterways. These will be rolled for when a player first enters them. All other scenery will be ordinary, mundane, plain, without any magical effects.

30 players.

Location: The Games Shop, Aldershot. Close enough to the town centre that we will not be catering. You'll be able to get tea and coffee from the venue, but you'll have to nip into town for lunch.

The pack gives you more details. Clicky the piccy.

Questions and answers

Post by poi » Sat Aug 17, 2013 4:00 pm

Here are the questions from last year's event. They all still apply.

Q Is the Wood Elf Free Wood a normal wood (i.e. no special rules), or is it mysterious?
A The wood elf wood is normal, not mysterious.

Q Do fleeing units at end of game count as destroyed?
A Fleeing units do not count as destroyed. Only those which have fled off the table do.

Q The Beasts spell Curse of Anraheir: "the unit treats all terrain (other than impassable terrain) as dangerous terrain...." Does Open Ground count as 'Terrain' for the purposes of using this spell.
A Open terrain is still terrain.

Q Can characters have equipment given to them in the jump from 1k to 2400? For example. A vanilla bsb given a magic standard? Or mounts?
A Yes, but not without restriction. So, if you'd bought a magic banner at 1000 points, you can't swap it for a different one at 2400.
Similarly, if your Hero is on foot at 1000 points, you can buy him a mount at 2400. If your Lord is on a horse at 1000 points, you can't buy him a dragon at 2400 points.

Q How about upping the level for a wizard?
A No. Then you're getting into ditching the character and replacing him with a better one.

Q If you have a BSB in your 1000pt army must he be your BSB in the 2400pt army?
A Yes.

Q Can you swap the BSB to another character making one character cheaper and another more expensive as you go into 2400pts?
A No. You can never make anything cheaper as whilst you can add gear, you can never remove it.

Q Can you change generals?
A You can swap to a different general for the larger list, but you must still use the character from the smaller list in the larger one.

Q Can you add to a characters cost? So a L1 goblin shaman with a scroll at 1000pts becomes a L2 with a scroll at 2400pts?
A Yes, but not in the way you suggest. You can add gear, but not mage levels, unless they are granted by an extra magic item.

Q So you can add items to characters? i.e. Can I have a 90 point character in my 1000 pts list who I then add another 20 pts of magic items to in the 2400 list?
A Yes, but only add some, not remove any. So you couldn't swap a magic sword for a better one, for example.

Q Ok so basically just so I'm clear. I couldn't afford a Slann in my 1000 pt army so my BSB would have to be something else. I then can't transfer the BSB to the Slann for the full army list is that correct?
A Correct

Q Just to check - can you add a BSB to a Hero from your 1000 point army. i.e. he isn't the BSB in the first list, and becomes the BSB in the second (with all the other equipment he had when in the 1000 list of course, which would preclude you from taking anything on him in the 1000 list that was incompatible with being a BSB) ? Adding a Magic Standard to a BSB from 1000 point has been covered somewhere, but no specific confirmation that you can do this.
A Yes you can.

Q Can players swap lores between games?
A No.

First new questions for 2013

Q How will Unmodified be ruled for the purposes of Unmodified leadership at the tournament?
A As in the current rulebook FAQ.

Q Do the dice you roll to wound a wizard from feedback scroll count as rolls to wound for the purpose of hatred fetish (reroll failed to wound rolls)?
A No, as in the Beastmen FAQ.

The last ticket went. As we sold out so quickly, I've spoken to the venue and they have space for more.

The absolute max is 40, so an extra ten tickets are now available.

More FAQ

Q Can Epidemius use Tally from inside the Portalglyph?
A Yes.

Q DoC allows two magic weapons as gifts. Do their effects stack?
A This will depend on the wording for each. Bearer abilities stack with both bearer and wielder abilities, but wielder abilities, or wording like "Attacks made with..." will only stack with bearer abilities.

Bearer weapons
Wand of Whimsy
Staff of Change
The Eternal Blade

Wielder weapons
Blade of Blood
Axe of Khorne
Plague Flail
Balesword
Witstealer Sword
Lash of Despair

All rulings stand unless GW reverse them before the day.

Q Do Lizardmen supporting attacks get the benefit of Predatory Fighter?

Q Do Skull Cannons pivot in the shooting phase like a normal cannon or do they have to stay the direction they are facing in the movement phase?

A They cannot pivot during the shooting phase as they are Chariots, not War Machines. However, Skull Cannons (like all single models) can pivot as many times in their movement as they like, except when charging.
