As we've been discussing Tournaments today, I thought I'd expand a little on an Idea I had on the drive to work this morning:
a Kill Team Tourney. It's a bit of an odd concept, but no more odd than team tourneys.
The idea springs a little from the desire to play some smaller games (which is why I started posting about Necromunda. Don't worry, I'll get back to Necromunda. You just can't do a Necromunda event really easy.) This would include small groups and the possibility for high quality conversions and painting, without the monetary sink of a 1500-2000pt army. I came up with this as a possibility of something to run as a tourney for GenCon next year.
Kill Team (and Necromunda) are good gateway games. There's not a lot of investment (in time, or money), and it plays like regular 40K (with a few minor adjustments)
The games are much faster (because they're 200pt games), and are on smaller boards (generally 4x4, rather than 6x4) It's a different pace, and uses a different force org. You select your force from 0-1 elite, 0-2 troop, 0-1 fast attack. You also can assign 3 USR's to 3 different models in your Kill Team (which adds a nice twist to the game)
This selection does limit some options, and does hamper some forces. One COULD still show up with 5 TH/SS termies. Someone could also show up with a Harlequin troupe, or ratlings supported by sentinels.
There are a LOT of options out there, and a lot of options for creating a unique hobby event.
I'd probably want to see prizes for:
Of course, there are a lot of subjective categories, because it's about who you think is the best at different aspects of the hobby.
I suppose the biggest question out there is:
Would you attend?
