Blog Wars 4 - Sat 1st Dec 2012 - Tickets on Sale now!
The original date was going to be in October but happened to fall on my friends stag do and I could hardly tell him to reschedule just for me! The next date available was the same guy's wedding! This meant the only date left in 2012 was December 1st so that's what we're going with. Maelstrom's events calendar fills up pretty quickly so I've actually booked the dates for BW5 & BW6 in 2013! Here's the dates for the next three Blog Wars tournaments:
Blog Wars 4 - Saturday 1st December 2012
Blog Wars 5 - Saturday 22nd June 2013
Blog Wars 6 - Saturday 19th October 2013
Now, like me, you probably don't plan that far ahead but these dates should stay the same so I figured there was no harm in letting you guys know. I'm going to update the BW4 post accordingly. I imagine for most people it will be their last tournament of 2012 and I can't think of a better way to end the year (though I would say that!).
As I've mentioned BW4 will attemped to embrace 6th edition as much as possible. Allies, Fortifications and Flyers are all in. Whilst I may live to regret these decisions I think it's best to give them a go and then figure out any problems so that BW5 & 6 will be better. For more information on Blog Wars 4 please head over to the dedicated page here. A copy of that information can be found here whilst descriptions of the scenarios are here.
For those of you not familiar with Blog Wars it's a 3 game tournament for £15 with the only restriction being that your army MUST include a special character. The first 3 tournaments were great fun and I think I managed to achieve a friendly atmosphere with a fairly competitive tournament. If nothing else it's a great opportunity for experienced players to try out lists they wouldn't normally take and for tournament newcomers to pop their cherry in a friendly environment!
Tickets are on sale now and are staying at £15 despite increasing costs. Please use the link on the right to buy tickets and if you want multiples either faff with several transactions or email me and we can make it simpler!
I look forward to seeing you all there and I hope some of the people who couldn't make the old date can now attend!
