HO HO OH NO!!

It's time again for the craziest 40k tournament of the year (and probably life), featuring fully custom nonsense missions from the deepest depths of Travis' fevered brain, drawing from a deep well of GW jank seated firmly into his consciousness from too many years' worth of inhaling primer and plastic glue fumes!

Look out for unique (and Mandatory!) warlord traits, objectives and battlefield effects full of HHHoliday Cheer, and maybe even cookies!

This tournament requres festive armies of 1850 points and will run for three merry rounds of calamity, at the end of which a winner will be declared, along with prizes for the best Sportsman, Best Army, and more!

The scenarios will be kept secret to ensure maximum "fun" on the day of the event, and suitable holiday conversions will earn you re-rolls; for example, if your Imperial Knight has a green-stuff santa hat and piles of presents at his feet, that battle cannon will become just a skosh more accurate.

This event will be reported as an ITC event, because for one, why not, and for two, if you win through this gauntlet of nonsense you deserve some points!

So deck your halls, light your candles, spread your honey, and get down here for the best slice of holiday fun the grimdark has ever seen!

So here is the link to the LVO stuff.

I suspect we are playing everything as listed there.

Probably because he is a pretty busy guy at work.

Seriously, I hope you can surpass your attendance record of last year.

Considering my attendance record last year was a whopping 2 of 12 I hope so too. When I played often I still only managed 6 of 12 a year but also sprinkled in 1 or 2 larger events. Last year I managed 2 plus the LVO


Oh, and the drop pods have more than just silver on them now

I wish I knew how to do that. Then I wouldn't have so much trouble figuring out a decal for the army

Any way Travis can hit up Reece and make this an ITC event? Since its LVO style. It would be awesome if it is. And very easy to make it happen.

The ITC is "the Independent Tournament Circuit". It is a tally of scores taken from many west coast tournaments. I know Travis is a busy man, but that would be awesome to make this an ITC event.

This is a awesome sig

It would be cool to make it an ITC event for you guys but would Travis even have enough time at this point?

It's very easy. All we gotta do is hit up Frontline Gaming and askto be added. Then turn in the results. Name of players, armies used, and total battle points for each player.

I had a great time. Good to see a lot of familiar faces after such a long tournament absence. I took a few pictures you can see in my Gallery or on Capture and Control.

Here is one from the final game with Julio, I still can't believe Khan and the Iron Hands Chapter Master took 18 Melta Shots to the face turn one and still had enough wounds to last through another 2 salvos before folding

I know Julio took a pic or two. I brought my camera, actually, but I got caught up in the fun ....

Results:
Top Spot - Jonathan C (SM & Astra M) , by a point over ....
2nd place - John. W. (Salamanders)
Best Paint - Darrell's Deldar
Sportsman - Julio R. (White Scars & Iron)

It was good to get BAO/ITC mission practice in. Very cool of Julio, Mike & Jeremy to make the long drive. Fun games, guys.

Dakka's picture quote isn't working for me ... otherwise I'd label each.

Pictures 5 and 6 are Jonathan's winning list.
The 9 drop pods are John W's.

The guy in the Brawl in the Fall t-shirt is me. Julio and I matched up Round 1. Despite a great beating I gave him, Julio beat me on the mission.

David Cutt's Imperial Knight is the last pic.

Sorry that I dunno the others.
