Hmm i could probably do with learning how to play with eldar. After playing 4 years of marines, ive played approximately 10 games with eldar and only two of them have been using falcons and wave serpents, the rest have been mass aspect rush. Guess im doing the opposite of last year and not learning how to use my army well before hand!! Go me!!

Ticket bought for heat one. I will be taking my space marines - Swords of Retribution.

lonepilgrim
09-07-2006, 16:32
I just bought tickets for Heat 2 (the other two heats clashed with Newcastle home games!). I will be taking my Black Legion. I will probably post in the projects section to track the army's progress toward the GT.

Since this is my first GT I wonder if anyone has any tips on accomodation? Anyone know which hotels are good or bad? Which ones are handy for Warhammer World and/or the train station? Any advice would be appreciated!

Prophaniti
09-07-2006, 17:31
For Warhammer World you've got the P&J, the Castle marina Hotels and Travelodge Riverside.

For the Station there's Bentink & Gresham (Cheap and Cheerful, apparently)

There's also City Centre hotels as WW is about 30 mins walk/ £5 taxi from the centre.

Sat, Bugman bar open until 11pm. For Fri, I would think they close same time as Warhammer World. But again Sat there open until 11pm, though not a lot people hang around until then.

Also you get free lunch on both Sat & Sun, as well as dinner on Sat, but to get that, make sure you have your GT ticket by you. Also free bottle of water are handed out.

Can't wait, should be great fun.

Insane Psychopath

As long as my friends hang around, I'll hang around. So most like to stay there until 11pm. But plan would be after dinner, maybe head back to hotel & leave armies in there & come back to Bungman bar. Just mean nothing to really carry & in the event me (the none drinker) has to help my drunk friends... the memories of last year :rolleyes:

I'm also not going to drink as much Coka Cola eather.. on the Sat night.

Still got a couple of holidays to go to before I can start painting, but they're all built ready for spraying. Any news on the GT FAQ btw? I've been out of the system for a while and I might have missed something?

As for meeting up Fri, it kind depend after coming right out a 5 hour drive & if wounderdog can rememeber his way back to the hotel. Or like last year, I'll fall somwhere & not get back up until Sat morining. But no army will be brought until the Sat morning :evilgrin:

If i cant get day off it will be about seven and i'll prob only be up for the meet and greet. But thanks for the invite, i'll be apprciative of the army critique from a fellow AL player.....

About the special character thing, I personally want to find a Mr M Calgar and batter him for legion pride and a Eldrad so i can laugh " wheres your precious seer council now hahahahahahaha, dakka dakkadakka"............ ehem..

14-07-2006, 19:25
I'm up for a warmup game (or three) on the friday, and a subsequent beer (or seven) providing bugmans isnt shutting at some embarassingly early hour.

My flight gets in at 10 in the morning friday, so I'll have loads of time to kill until IP arrives (>7pm) to check into the hotel etc.

I shall have to wear something with my name on then. And for those of you who cant read, I'll be the guy surrounded by weeping Iron warriors players.

I remember that challenge last year- I think I was the only one who faced a Special Character (Nightbringer). It was either win the game or feed my army to the meatgrinder to kill him- tough choice, lol.

I hope they do a Tourney FAQ on that Farsight is not an IC rubbish. Also, is there already an 'official' FAQ out with stuff like Deep Striking Speeder count as moving over 12", etc or is that just Marine-hater's wet dreams.

For those who are wanting to know about the FAQ


Weíre in the process of collating the last of the asked questions and we expect the FAQ to be up some time in the next couple of weeks. It would be sooner, but it seems GW are having difficulties with their web servers which is causing delays in the upload of page updates. In the mean time Iíll try and get a copy emailed to you as soon itís available.

Hope that helps a little

Good news chaps! The GT ticket is all sorted and ordered and everything! Should be shuffling it's way to me by snail mail as I type. Wooo! So anyone going to Heat 3, look out for me and my all conquering chaos army of doom (by which I mean "untested, just about painted chaos army of meh")

Hmmmm.... I should probebly beter get on with the army. The problem being, of course, that we're having a rare heat-wave here in manchester at the mo (as I assume you are in the rest of the UK) and I really cant be bothered moving, let alone setling down to some hardcore mould-line removing. I'll keep y'all posted on my progress though. I've made 2 models so far. Out of 60. I'm sure you're all very proud.

Also rememeber that Lascannon turret :D e-mail me when your coming into GW.

I have actually managed to survive the heat and paint!!! Nearly got a platoon done.

That is pretty insane, but hot as hell today. But like a Guards men you push on :D

My mail order for updated HQ should be here tomorrow & then got to wait on wounderdog to give me a turret for my Pred. Got to re-fix the list & test game it tomorrow.

Hi everon

Just got a update for you lot


The current version of the FAQ should go up next week on the web.

Here’s the .pdf for your information

Brian Aderson


Yep I got my own copy :D

If anyone wise a copy who are entering the GT, e-mail me & I'll send a copy.

edit+ My new version of my HQ, been fully built & painted, just waiting on that Turret from Wounder Dog.

Find that little unfair if people not read it yet.

As for FAQ, there some part you will like, other you will not. Who know, come down to how you like gaming.

For exsample, Daemon Prince (may read it wrong) with Statur get 3d6 for Difficlu terrain test & can re-roll. May not be big, but for someone like me who roll poor for DT test, well it great :D Though I am not useing a Daemon Prince this year :rolleyes:

Your friend Fallen Angle got a copy (I sent it).

Also FoA for Marines see you do not need line of sight as said in the codex.

Apologies for that, having tanks or Infantry sat on hills making them level 6/5 respectively sort of ruins a LOT of armies and there specific tactics (Tau no longer hidden for one!). :eek:
Looking at the FAQ the repetiveness of some of the points and the mispelling sort of makes me wonder to be honest with you whether Its valid or not.
There just seems to be too many contradictions against the rulebook really to make me believe It's valid.
Could be wrong though :rolleyes:

I know what you mean. I am not p*** off, but it annoy me how, Pete H who made the codex say Daemonic Speed "can" set up in Omega, well turn out they can't, well add to the challege :D

As said it should be ready by download next week.

Check out page 4, qustion 5 from the top. I though it was said, it'll work eather or & I though in the updated Chaos codex (version 3) it dose say shooting or assult????

I'm hopin to get round to browsing through the FAQ a little later on, but from what I've read there do seem to be a few...odd things goin on. But like I say I aint read it properly yet.

As for the army, I'm currently on 3 minor injuries (2 knife slices on my thumb removing mould lines, 1 pin vice wound by drilling all the way through a piece of plactic when pinning it), but I do have a fairly nice pile of cleaned up bits now. My current plan is to get ALL of the mould lines off all the infantry bitz before I start assembling anything. That way I can just convert/glue em all in one go. That way I get the tedious boring bits out the way now and then have all the cool stuff in one go. It's an odd plan but it'll work. I think.

Ticket arrived yeaterday too. #22. My mate who ordered right after me (on the same phone) got #69. We assume, therefore, that it's random as opposed to "next number allocation", otherwise they sold 40 odd tickets in 2 minutes...

Just started painting my army; my Defiler's coming on nicely though I'm rushed for time, so it hasn't been done to the best of my abilities - I might post some pictures up later.

Are we all gonna meet up and get a group photo? I seem to recall it was tried before, but it wasn't pulled off.

But photos of my army are more then welcome :D

On other note, seem I will be painting Death Guard force since my IWs are full painted. Plan to use them right after Heat 1, being a student & college not starting any time soon, I got lot time, just mean another 1500pts army full painted :angel:

Fair enough, but I want to get pictures of everyone's armies. I go to every tournament, take pictures for the first two rounds or so, and forget to do same after that. Well, maybe not everyone's armies, considering there's like 140 people going now I'd guess, but everyone I know of WarSeer if I can manage.

Necrons aren't bad - they're not likely to win the tournament, but most Necron players can get into the top fifty. My Da'll be taking Neccies as well, so you're not on your own!

In fact, didn't someone come 5th or something last year in a Heat with them?


avoid me lol
I thought you were only taking six! :eek:

Anyway, I prmosed some pics (though they are very bad) of my Defiler.

I've knocked it up in about 3-4 hour's of work effectively so I'm pleased with how it's come out even though I know I could have done better. The photos don't do it justice to be honest, the gold's a lot more well defined, but meh, you know what sort of thing to look out for. Now the rest of the army to paint!

The long-awaited Defiler (http://s8.photobucket.com/albums/a46/Harliez/Iron%20Warriors/?action=view&current=Frontal.jpg&refPage=&imgAnch=imgAnch2)

That ok. I'll be doing the same, but I'll be taken them though out the event. Once I really like the look of & maybe steal there idear for future armies (but with changies of course) I will take more off. All I can say it, thank ******* my camera can hold a total of 155 photos lol.

Yep GH the Deflier dose look cool. Now get the rest of the force done :p

For Necron part, they can do alright & are a pretty cool army. I'm ex-necron player, really like there models. Thinking of ordering a spure for loot counters. Really miss my Necron army thinking about it.

Anyway, a guy call Jonathen Crop??? He dose well with a Necron force in the past few GT he went to.

Also Alex F & his famouse Pink Necron came second in the UK GT heat 1 2004.

@ dave is the best: age for the GT? you have to be 16 to enter, and if you're young I'd suggest you go down with a group of mates coz you'll have to find accommodation and so on...

As for my chances of getting through to the final... erm, I dunno. I've qualified twice in the last 3 years, including last year when I tried a totally untested army (I used marines for the first time in 6 years, having previously used a pure combat orky force. It was a fun learning curve on the first day). This year, however, I've chosen my army based off the "if it looks damn cool" rule. So that means I'm using chosen. So I'm not as confident as I might be.

Whatever happens I'll be having a laugh anyway. Alot of people get hung up about qualifying for the finals, whereas I'm just hoping for a few good opponents, a few good games and (more than) a few good pints.

TO HEAT 3! Join me. You know you wanna.....

Back on topic.

GT heat 1, there are but 8 ticket left for this event, I could see them gone before the end of Aug.

So yep number wise, there will be 142 people over all & Heat 3 pretty much look the same (but unsure the numbers).

It should be a great weekend & I look forward to the battles as well as just spending time that Warhammer World.

So have anyone finish there armies yet??? My army been finish for a while, just chosen to re-do a few loot counters & to fill the time, I have a new 1500pts army to get painted. So they can be ready for after the GT as a sort of "take a break army".

But all is set for thew Grand Tournament :D

I've just finished repainting my Imperial Guard army - it only took two and a half weeks (nearly striaght) and a couple of 2 am finishes but I've finally done it. All I need now is to get a seriuous number of games under my belt with as many different opponents as possible (but marines will do...:wtf: )

Looks like an ok mix of armies so far so should be good fun. Anyone got some advice on how they practice? Our local GW usually only allows 1000pt match ups so that will be my staple but I'll play full 1500's with my mates + a few little practice sessions with just 500pts just to get the feel of it all ;)

Anyone in the southampton area need some practice? We could arrange to meet up for a game at GW soton...? Just an idea.

Hope everyone else is making progress with their armies.... ;)

By the way is it required to take loot counters cos I think I missed that bit in the rules pack!? If so I better get the paints out again! ;)

There is a mission, No2 I belive called Secure & Control page 82 of the rule book. Thing is, you do & you don't need to make loot counters, What I mean you need object, 5 max. Could be anything, money, food (my friend give oppent Scottish Biscuits, another give Choc coins) or you can theme stuff to your army.

For myself, I make 5x Destroyed Necrons to fit with my IWs background (some new stuff during Medusa V)

But just anything for that mission, even oil drum from the W40k sprue.

Just anything (with in reason) to count as onject for just that mission.

I'm pondering what to take as well. Last year I used a few spare squigs I had lurking at the bottom of my case (not really themed to the Dark Angels army I took...) so this year I'm trying to theme em in. Dunno what I'll do yet. Maybe fallen banners or something. Or something more sinister and chaos-y....
