Hello!

There have been several new club members recently, quite a few of which play fantasy, have just started or want to give it a shot. This got me thinking, how can we get everyone playing against a variety of armies whilst learning the rules and getting stuff painted.......enter the Escalation league.

The idea behind this is that the whole league moves along in stages, giving people a chance to get a grip of the basic rules etc before moving onto bigger things!

Have you just started Warhammer?
Do you want to give Warhammer a try?
Are you looking to start a new army?
Do you just want to get in a lot of games againt differnet people?

If your interested sign up on this thread or come and see me at the club on Friday!

Cheers

RULES
PHASE ONE
All armies start at 400 points
All armies must contain at least one hero
All armies must contain at least one core unit
All remaining points must be spent on core
NO SPECIAL CHARACTERS
NO LORDS DURING PHASE ONE

At this stage players may use unpainted models, but are expected to have all phase one models completed by phase two.

At this stage all games will be randomly drawn.

Scoring
Win - 3
Draw - 2
Lose - 1

Dont worry about the points for now, the aim is that most people will have at least one unit and a hero, keeping it simple for learning the core rules, but also allowing people to get bits painted if they arent already - dont worry we will soon move onto phase two!

Glad to see we have a good amount of interest already! Ill get a full sign up list at the club and we can hopefully start within the next few weeks.

@GonzoMfM - If your planning on using your Daemons I can show you how to paint plaguebearers very quickly and to a good standard if your interested?

Im going to make a thread for the army building chunk of the league, in a similar style to the TOFP on warseer, your welcome to join that, im hoping this will help everyone get stuff painted!

OR

You can sign up for the league as a whole and play when ever your in Cornwall (Sadly the rest of the time you will get an auto loss Wink)

@Syanide - You can take more than one hero, im expecting most of the horde armies to be taking at least two, at this early stage we wont be sticking to the standard army building rules.

@Awesomesteve - As soon as possible please Smiley

Cheers
Matt
