Hello all :-)
There has been talk for some time now of running a Summer Sizzler event in Bristol (UK!) and this is me getting the dates and numbers finalised, please post expressions of interest, comments, criticisms, etc in this thread.
The Winter Warmer provides a high quality yet informal open tournament format that has thus far proved succesful and, for many people, is one of the must attend events of the year, numbers aren't capped, there is a real mix of new, irregular and experienced players and any list that people like can be used. It's also cheap and supported by a wide range of people and organisation in the Epic Community :-)
Several other events have already cropped up that allow the same freedom and the ever excellent EpicUK events calendar is more than able to cater to the tournament thirst of us all (and with new lists being released it means more oppurtunity to dust off your old and new models!). Worry not though! Winter Warmer will still be running in January 2013!
The Summer Sizzler is planned to be a different beast. Our aim is to work towards being able to provide one of the highest quality Epic Gaming Experiences that we can: deliveriny an event that is grand in scope, playability, scenery and armies and to this end we'd like to give event attendees the oppurtunity to refight...
THE FIRST WAR FOR ARMAGEDDON
An ash laden Hive World like no other! Players command their armies of Chaos Renegades, Traitors, Daemons, Infernal Machine Constructs and Warped Titans in depserate battle with the Imperiums finest: Centuria of Guardsmen allied with the Mighty Titan Legions of the Adeptus Mechanicus and Space Marine Chapters battle over specially constructed and themed scenery and boards.
We will model specific locations and objectives based upon a giant vinyl print out of the original 'Battle for Armageddon' board game that the players move their armies across as play proceeds: different compositions of forces will move at different rates and vie for control and conquer of the hive cities, ports, star ports, refineries and airfields. Meeting engagements in No Man's Land, objective based struggles to control resources and laying seige to population centres will all have an affect on up to TWO MEGA BATTLES! Will the primary Hive walls fall to the seige engines of chaos or will the brave Imperial Defenders be able to push the foul forces of Chaos back to whence they came? Only YOU can control their fate!
We will be capping this event at 14 players. Unlike the WW we need to set some limits to really make this a stand out event. The most important of these that people will need to bear in mind are:
-That the price will rise: with the amount of work planned for this event we will need to raise the price: expect anything up to £20-25 per head to cover the costs of awesome scenery making, food, vinyl map print out and venue hire (Cut and Thrust Wargaming).
-Chaos and Imperial Armies only! Self Explanatory really! These must be fully painted and preferably to a reasonably standard! the BSS team will also be supplying a large range of specially modelled units and pre made armies (an imperial and chaos titan legion, a very large PDF/Seige Force, A World Eaters Army with specially modelled seige engines, and with luck a Space Marine force) These may be loaned to players without armies, used by the organisers as forces in their own right or spread out as allies.
-That players will need to be able to attend fully on both days of the tournament! There may be the ability for us to run the a small amount of initial meeting engagements on the Friday night if people can make it. It would be ideal if people don't have to rush off on the sunday: we need to ask for commitment to make this event work! We in Bristol will be doing our best to make sure that all tables are prepared and ready and that the weekend runs smoothly: the last thing we want is to waste time.
-That we will need an even spread of Imperial and Chaos armies: this is one of the reasons we have 'studio' forces available on loan.QUESTIONS:
-Are you interested in such an event? Do you have the forces to take part? Would you like to come?!
-How does late August suit people? We need time to prepare models, scenery, campaign system our end but don't want to clash: perhaps this is an event for people wanting A) a double dose of epic goodness (Britcon and BSS) or B) those unable to attend Britcon
-If not Late August when would people suggest?
