Dear All,


Registration is now open for the Cambridge Doubles Event on Saturday 28th September at Trumpington Village Hall - doors open at 9:15am, Game 1 starts at 9:45am.

Tickets will cost £10 (please send payment to: mintroll-paypal@2-72.co.uk). Lunch not included, but there's a pub next door and Waitrose nearby.


The event will consist of two 4000pt games. Each player will bring a 2000pt army that will be paired up with another player at random (everyone enters as an individual).

Thanks to many peoples comments and suggestions we have written some rules to cover doubles play - they aren't perfect and look more complicated than they are, but we'll run through the details on the day.
Important points for army selection:
  • Two spacecraft can be activated each turn - so spacecraft aren't as risky to include
  • Your 2000pt army can be one of two formats
    1. A standard legal 2000pt list (max 666pt air+titan)
    2. One titan costing 850 or more points, and (2000-titan cost)pts with no other air or titans



We hope you'll join us in Cambridge for some Epic Doubles.


Entrants:

  1. Simon W [mintroll] (Org)
  2. Rich B (Org)
  3. Andy J [Kyrt] (paid)
  4. Jon H [Bob The Terrible]
  5. Rich L [RichardL] (paid)
  6. Simon P [PAR]
  7. Rob H
  8. Console Avenging Angel
  9. Tim H [Tiny-Tim] (paid)
  10. Mike T
  11. kyussinchains
  12. Gavin M [Ginger]

Looks a good fun format, I'm a bit gutted I won't be able to make it.

Might try and get a game in using this approach down here for a bit of fun...

Good luck mate!

Afternoon,

Just to say, the Cambridge Doubles Event is definitely going ahead.



I won't lie, it would be great to get at least two more attendees...
We're running a very informal event, so turning up on the day is fine.

19 days to go.


Simon

I managed to arrange an intro day at Tanelorn for the Sunday after this.

Bad timing on my part Mintroll, but hope to have at least 6 newbies trying minigeddon so grist the mill I hope :)

Afternoon all,

Some people have messaged me about army list submission. Because this is a friendly tournament and a bit unusual, I'm not being strict on submitting lists before the day. Feel free to post/email me your lists to check they are alright (that is, conform to the acceptable list format).

I will be bringing the following list:

World Eaters
Retinue + Warlord 350
Terminators + Daemon Prince + Icon Bearer 475
Daemon Engines (x6) 425
Daemon Engines (x5) 350
Lord of Battles 400

For reference, if there are uneven numbers on the day a selection of the following 'dummy' lists will be used:

Codex Marine
Land Raider 350
Land Raider 350
Whirlwind 300
Vindicator 250
Vindicator 250
Predator (2,2) 250
Predator (2,2) 250

Codex Marine
Terminator+SC 450
Terminator+Chap 400
Tactical 300
Tactical 300
Tactical 300
Devastator 250

Ork
Great Gargant 850
Stompa (x5) 375
Stompa (x5) 375
KoS (8bike) 200
KoS (8buggy) 200
