Players across the Metroplex are invited to build a 6th edition Warhammer 40,000 army via the North Texas Summer Escalation League!
League Organizer Edward McDaniel invites interested hobbyists to join by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org with their name, army (plus allies) and preferred play location. Participants will be tracked via the League dedicated Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/groups/322315597863267/ with details also maintained through Adeptus North Texas and it's emailing list http://www.adeptusnorthtexas.com.
Play will begin at 500 points using Combat Patrol Force Org May 18 through the end of May. June 1 armies increase to 750 points and Standard Force Org. June 15 the army points increase to 1000; June 29 to 1250 points; July 13 to 1500 points; July 27 to 1750 points; and August 10 thru the end of the summer 2000 points.
A climactic 2000 point Tournament will conclude the Escalation League the weekend of August 24 & 25, which will include voting by participants for such things as Best Painted Army and Best Model (converted and painted). Details regarding the culminating event will be posted separately once the League is underway.
Each player will attempt to record 2 battles at each army points level. The games must be against 2 different opponents to count. A win is worth 4 League points, a Draw 3, and a Loss 2. Play with unfinished/unpainted armies IS legal (opponent willing), but playing with an unfinished army subtracts -1 League point from that player's total. Players who do not get both games in at a League point level can make those games up in subsequent weeks (to accommodate vacations and other unforeseen absences without discouraging players from continuing to participate).
ANY published Games Workshop army list is allowed, including Forge World book variants and White Dwarf article lists, so long as the list and it's units are updated to 6th edition (Apocalypse/super-heavy units are not legal except for League-related Apocalypse special events).
Games may be played at any location--a participating North Texas retailer or your own or a buddy's home--but results must be reported to League Organizer McDaniel to be verified and count.
Battle Reports to the League Organizer should include:
-Both Player Names
-Mission and Deployment
-Army Lists used
All models must be WYSIWYG, especially in the case of conversions, but are not restricted by manufacturer beyond that.
Each player should have their published army list source readily available, a printed, accurate and legible army list (and preferably one for their opponent).
Rulebook page 118 should be referred to for Missions, Terrain and Deployment.
The opening Combat Patrol Rules will not be the standard Adeptus North Texas variant but rather a modified Adepticon version; contact League Organizer for details.
The League will utilize Adeptus North Texas, it's emailing list, and it's Facebook page to develop and recognize other aspects of the Hobby, like the creation of interesting continuing characters to lead players' armies and the composing of fiction to add depth and colour to the stories played out in League games; and there will be several events throughout the summer of extra added value to League participants.
Best of all--playing in the League costs nothing beyond enthusiasm and good sportsmanship!
Email League Organizer McDaniel today, and muster your forces--a new army awaits you by the end of summer 2013, through participation in the Warhammer 40,000 North Texas Summer Eacalation League!
