So on Thursday, there are two Warhammer: Age of Sigmar Vanguard Tournament items, one from 8-2 and one from 2-8. Is it possible to be in both of those? I would worry about them running long and overlapping, but I kind of want to do both.

I think they are run by the same people, and in he same place. So I definitely think it would be possible. I will see you for the 2-8 one.

Regarding hotel rooms, I'm looking for a trustworthy person for a roomate, since it turns out my family isn't coming out this time.

I'm reserved at the main hotel Wed-Sun nights, but willing to consider someone only staying 4 nights. PM me if you're looking or know someone who might be, please

Edit - Roomate found! Cheers

Yes you can do both of them. As long as the times don't overlap the sign up system will let you sign up for both of those events. Just one of those things you have to make arrangements with some buddies or pack some food since you will be playing all day, and might not get a lot of chances to get food during any breaks that you will have.

I would like to know when the organisation plans to answer questions about the W40k TT, W40k Championship and model conversion? I sent those in November, early December and I still didin't get any answer. With some of the new changes (2 detachments, very limited use of the FW units) it means my team and I need to rework ours lists and that is some painting time we need to plan.

thx

Any word on when some of these events are going to get their final rules?

Long War Doubles has no indication of what is and isn't allowed in lists, if team mates pull from the same pool or effect eachother's units, any of that. It has said "keep an eye here for details" since it was posted.

Adepticon Titanicus has the rules for Warhound and Reaver, but no xenos titans or the Warlord.

I kinda hope they change the AoS events to be picking traits/artifacts instead of rolling for them. Being able to plan for that is a big deal in some armies.

Yeah, and it makes them pretty broken too. I would always take Bellowing Tyrant/Battle Brew for my Ironjawz, I would love my Megaboss making six attacks hitting on 1+, wounding on 1+, -1 rend, two damage and then his two big attacks: hitting on 2+, wounding on 1+, rend -2 and d3 damage. And making a Waagh! every turn adding more attacks as well.

There are just obvious and must take choices for each army if you were able to choose your command ability and artifacts every turn. Your strategy for this tournament would be to plan for the worst Command and Artifact combo your army can get, and the best one your opponent can get.

Meh, they choose during army building in the UK and it seems fine. Personally I think you should be able to choose. But I'm good with either way. I just won't really care about the traits/artifacts unless I get a cool one

Everyone getting the choice balances it out some, though. It sucks when you get Bellowing Tyrant/Battle Brew on a roll and I get shooty melee abilities on my shooty Knight-Venator. I'd rather have us both pick and get things we want rather than random silliness happening that can change the game by a huge margin.

I've heard from a few sources that 40k Champs is going to go with a 3 source format, based on discussion and the new FAQs that were released. Is this true?

I know a lot of people will be very happy (myself included) with the move back to 3 sources instead of 2.

Requizen,

Per the AoS Championship rules packet here:
New rules and units that are released by February 23rd, 2017 will be allowed in this event.
Any new rules or units released after this date WILL NOT be allowed in this event.

Any body else in Combat Patrol and wondering when the rules will be out. Seems Combat Patrol and Kill Team are the only two without rules.

40k doubles is also pretty much without any useful rules. Adepticon titanicus only has rules for 2 imperial titans. No chaos, xenos, or warlord.

We are going to update to 3 sources officially, just a few things left to finalize before the next publish.

The Imperial Space Marine is not expressly allowed as it is not printed in a codex.

We will update the expressly forbidden language in the next update.

Will these new Gathering Storm units and/or detachments dominate the championship top tables? Will 2016 armies stand a chance?

Pretty certain Adepticon does not run ITC.

On another note, I seriously cannot wait for Adepticon. It's the best 4-5 days of hanging out with nerds ever.

Looking at the championship rule, it does not make much sense that an elder player can potentially field 2 wraithknights while keeping them under a total cost of 700 points, while an ork player is denied the use of a stompa. For the latter, higher points do not mean that it is more powerful. If the original idea is to control OP combination, it surely helps those units that are cost-effective.

Adepticon does not use ITC missions, army composition, or FAQ. But they DO submit player scores to the ITC, so yes it's an ITC major event and you'll get ITC points for it.
