I think you will find that Saturday morning starts at 11am.
The clocks go: 10pm Friday, 11pm Friday, 11:30 Friday.
5 magical hours which there are no names for and are neither in Friday or Saturday.
11 am Saturday.

you're fine to turn up 11am on Saturday, i'm sure whoever you were down to play in game 2 will be fine with their 32-0 win :P

With 10 players this year I'll be running the first two games as seeded random games. Seeding based on last year's championship standings. This will hopefully stop first playing last round 6!

Probably means more either top plays bottom and middle plays middle, or alternately 1 plays 6, 2 plays 7 etc.

Thanks Richard but I was only going if there would then be even numbers (through a last minute additional player or someone dropping out) but this hasn't happened so almost definite I won't be going this year.

I'll see you guy at the Minigeddon tournament next month instead. Have fun!

I'm bringing vanilla guard this year, it's been years since i've used them at 4k so decided it was time for them to hit the table again. Plus, i have zero desire to bring anything with air assaults in a field where i'm pretty much guaranteed to play John's feral orks at some point. Stupid Macro AA...

What's everyone else going for this year?

Oh, and Dave - i'm assuming that was 10 players not including Glynn? or are we now at 9?

Interesting, a good mix at least :) Most are pretty obvious who's playing them, although we seem to have a mystery player going by numbers and who's posted here. I'm looking forward to seeing how Tim's Titanicus list gets on especially! 4k can be rough for titans with all of the TK weapons that tend to abound afterall

I suspect that it will be difficult for the AT list.

Guys, not sure if you saw from the whatsapp group, but I'm going to have to bail. Whole family has a particularly unpleasant stomach bug, leaving the house not really an option. Plus biological warfare is not an honourable way to try and win at epic. Sorry to cancel at late notice.

Glynn - do yo want my ticket? I also have a hotel booked that's non-refundable. Yours for free if you can make it. First come first serve.
