  1. Its been a while but since Dwars is starting to rev back up again I'm pleased to announce that I'll be hosting Hard Pounding 11 on the 24th June at Outpost wargames in Sheffield. Here is the rules pack: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B5yUOt_M-5zMRUtQSWRlWTBrQVE/view?usp=sharing Basic highlights it's three rounds one 1000pt, one 1250 and one 1500 so everybody gets a good full fat game of Dwars in the final round but we all actually get to go home at a reasonable hour! You use the same 1k list but can add on 250 in round 2 and 500 in round 3. The missions are all in the link above from Ironclad, a rules pack that we've run umpteen events on has been play tested to death and has been translated into other languages! Thread is pinned in general discussion. Tickets are £16 including lunch and some generous prize support and are available here: http://the-outpost.co.uk/our-products/tickets/Ticket-Hard-Pounding-XI Any questions or discussion you can drip by here but I tend to be a bit lax checking these days or if you use facebook like 2,000,000,000 other people there is an event page here that I'll answer too pretty quick sharpish : https://www.facebook.com/events/439792163055528/?ti=as Hopefully see you soon Drach.

  8. So after the challenge (and fun) of building a 3500 point Directorate list, I thought it was worth posting something up for the Aquans. The challenge here is that the Directorate are around about the second cheapest faction (in points) compared to the Aquans, so you do get noticeably less on the table with the Aquans. I dont think that this makes them inherently bad, but it does make list building entertaining. Our club is hosting a tournament at 3500 points in the next few weeks, and we have found that 3500 points is a nice point size to play through with time to spare in a 3 hour club night. We hope that the more games everyone gets under their belts the faster we will get to 4,000 point games in those same three hours. Anyway, enough rambling, 3500 points.... Core: Sedna x 2 Lamana x 3 Lamana x 3 Stingray x 2 Stingray x 2 Imzani x 3 Imzani x 3 Khitari x 3, Gun Team x 3 SirSir (attached to a Lamana Squadron) Aerial: Kalari x 2 Recon: Marana x 4 Khitari x 6, Sweeper Team x 3 Larata x 1 Khitari x 3, Gun Teams x 3 Larata x 1 Unlike my Directorate force, this guys rock around with a fair amount of Interceptor units (Stingrays, Marana's), and also has some nice Dice pools from the rest of my force. Take and Hold I am running around with six units capable of taking the Objectives which gives lots of redundancy, well two units of redundancy given the four objectives on the table top. I could have reduced my core to save points for extra things outwith it (like a Haumea & Locatu's) but actually really like the size of the Core Helix where it is, and think this is the go to list for me, at least until the Assault Helixes get here and I get my hands on those models... mwhahahahaha. Anyway, any thoughts?
  9. "PLANETFALL IN TWENTY!" Overview this is a 2000 point entry level tournament for Firestorm Planertfall to be held on the 21stFebruary at Outpost Wargames in Sheffield. Organisation: The event will encompass five rounds over the day, each round lasting an hour, a referee will be present throughout the day to help ease things along and to resolve any questions or disputes. Timetable: 09:00-09:45 Registration 09:45-10:00 H&S announcements and pairings 10:00-11:00 First round 11:15-12:15 Second round 12:15-13:15 Lunch 13:15-14:15 Third round 14:30-15:30 Fourth round 15:45-16:45 Fifth round 17:00 Prizes and announcements Winning the tournament Each round a player receives tournament points (TP) at the end of the tournament final standings are determined on the highest number of TP. 0 points are awarded for a major loss 1 Point is awarded for a minor loss 2 Points are awarded for a draw 3 Points are awarded for a minor win 4 Points are awarded for a major win If at the end players are tied on TP then ties are broken first by the lowest total Zero Hour Tracker value (TV) and then by the total difference between TV scored and TV conceded. In the unlikely event that players are still tied, gladiatorial combat will be fought conforming to Queensbury rules. It is worth noting that even in scenarios which do not rely on TV for their victory conditions it is still tracked for final totals. Terrain: All wood in this event woods classify as being occupiable. Scenarios: Round 1: Annihilation. Briefing: The area has no objectives of value there are however enemy forces to be dealt with. Deployment: Standard Victory conditions: TV is reduced by destroying enemy units, two bonus tracker points are awarded for wiping out enemy command elements (not awarded if they leave the table). The standard game end conditions apply, or the game times out after four turns. TP are scored according to the margin of victory. Round 2: Planetfall standard mission. As per the planetfall rulebook, but times out after four turns. Round 3: Sector domination Briefing: The area needs to be secured sector by sector for deployment of invasion critical assets Deployment: the centreline of the board is drawn diagonally from corner to corner, deployment zones are at least 16” from the line in each direction. The player who wins the roll for deployment picks which side of the line they wish to deploy on but the player who loses the roll chooses which corners the centreline is drawn between. Objective: At the end of each turn players score scenario points (SP) for quarters of the board (sector) that they control: apply the highest for each sector 1 SP for having a unit in a sector with no enemy units. 1 SP for having a unit with take and hold in a sector where the enemy have no take and hold units. 2 SP for having a unit with take and hold in a sector with no enemy units. Flying class units cannot claim to hold a sector but do count as an enemy unit present in the sector for your opponent. A unit can only hold or contest a single sector at a time At the end of turn 4 the player with the most SP scores a Major victory if they have a lower TV than their opponent, or a minor victory if they have the same or higher TV than their opponent. If both players have the same SP the game is a draw. Round 4: Asset retrieval. Briefing: Tech/agents/delicious plankton/interesting-things-to-spiders have been stashed across the area, it is mission critical that these assets be retrieved and denied to the enemy. Setup: Before deployment place five asset markers in the same way alternately between players (a roll off for the placement of the first marker is required), these markers cannot be placed within 12” of each other and may be placed within occupiable terrain features. Objective: Assets markers may be collected by units which pass over them (or take and hold units which move into contact with an occupiable feature containing one). Placing a break marker on a unit carrying a marker, wiping it out or completing a sucessful storm action against a unit forces the to drop the marker in contact with the closest member of the unit to the direction of the attack. Victory conditions: At the end of turn four the player with the most asset markers scores a major victory if they have a lower TV than their opponent, or a minor victory if they have a higher TV than their opponent. If both players have the same number of assets the game is a draw. Round 5: Space elevator. Briefing: This world has a space elevator if it can be captured it would be of significant advantage. Setup: Before deployment a terrain feature designated as the space elevator is placed in the centre of the table, rather than elevated height it is also considered to be occupying the flying height band (thus blocking movement and LOS to flyers). Another two buildings are placed 12” to either side on the centreline as control centres. Before deploying the first helixes each player places an access point in their board half. Special rules: No skydrop markers can be placed within 12” of the space elevator (too dangerous to drop in it's proximity). The control centres count as being connected to the access points, each other and the space elevator via mass transit tubes which allow infantry to move between them as a movement action (if the target is occupied it counts as storming) additionally access points are designed for rapid access, so an infantry unit may enter an access point for free it they end their movement in contact with it (specifically after a disembark order) Victory conditions: The game lasts for four turns, at the end of turn four score as below: 1 SP for holding the space elevator with take and hold units. 1 SP for holding both control centres with take and hold units. 1 SP for having the only infantry occupying the transport network (i.e. the only player with infantry in access points, control centres or space elevator. If at the end of the game one player has 2 SP they score a major victory, if 1 SP and the other doesn't they score a minor victory. If both players have the same SP the game is a draw.
