OrgPlay Selected for Preliminary Ard Boyz Fantasy! – April 16

We’re proud to announce that we’re going to be Knoxville’s location for the Preliminaries for the Ard Boyz Warhammer Fantasy Tournament! This event – as all Ard Boyz tournaments are – will be FREE entry, with the top three finishers receiving qualifier status to Regionals, on the road to the crown of top Fantasy player in the nation! The tournament will begin at 11 a.m. on April 16, and be prepared for three rounds of Swiss play… expect this to be an all-day affair. While I don’t have detail on any other prizes other than the qualifications so far, I’ll keep you posted as I hear more about prize support.

In the meantime, here are all the details you need to know about army composition and rules for the tournament!


Warhammer 40k Escalation League Night 1 Results! (Rules Clarifications included)

OK, so our first night is complete! I hope everyone had a good time! Obviously we had a MUCH larger turnout than we expected and we’ll have more tables by the next league night on February 1st.

How the league works is each player will be paired up to play one game that counts toward the league scoring per league night. League points are only earned through your performance in the league game with the winner getting 3 points and the loser getting 1 point. Ties result in 2 points for each player.

Painting is a factor! If your army is painted with 3 colors or more on them then you will receive these bonus points(1 point per night)! This means even if you just have the basecoats on your miniatures then you’re fine.

As far as pairings go, from here on out you will be paired against someone with the same record as you (players will be paired up against someone with a different record if no one else in their bracket shows up). So if you won tonight, on the 1st you’ll be playing someone else who won until there are no more winners left and then you’ll be playing down to someone on the next tier.

Thanks for putting up with the lack of tables/team games tonight. We’re gonna be working hard to get more tables up and running for our next meeting.

Here are the standings after Night 1, after the cut:
