Hello from the Junkie,
My name is James, aka “The 40k Junkie” and on behalf of Rocky Mountain 40k, I will be hosting the doubles tournament at Feast of Blades. Duke and I have talked extensively about Feast of Blades and its direction. To make our convention a bit different, the doubles tournament will be promote a relaxed atmosphere with a goal to raise money for charity. To that fact Feast of Blades has become an official supporter of the Wounded Warrior Project.
The missions will be kept simple with deployments found in the basic rule book and modified slightly for theme. Scoring will be determined based on the battle point modifier system.
Sure it’s for charity, but that doesn’t mean we can’t give out some awesome prizes to our winners. The categories are as follows: Best Overall, Best General, Best Painted, Best Team Spirit, and Best Giver(yes you can just buy one an award, but given the cause we felt it was ok.)
There will also be prizes handed out during the rounds for accomplishments achieved during a mission. Some examples are: “Lose over 50% of your models and still win the mission, first one to explode a vehicle by rolling 6 to hit/6 to pen/6 for a result. The complete list of these accomplishments will be revealed in the events final packet.
Asset gathering/ Fund Raising:
What’s this? Have you ever wished you could reroll that critical dice at that critical time? Well now for a nominal fee you can. In the asset gathering phase your team will be able to purchase from a variety of special bonus to be used during your games. After your games you can share a cold drink with your opponents via the “Beer” asset, redeemable for one beer at the Bar. Clearly you have to be 21 to DRINK this asset, but not to buy. Why are we offering this potentially confusing new gimmick? Well, I’m glad you asked. 100% of all money raised from assets will go to increase our overall donation to the WWP. But wait are you concerned about some guy spending all that money to make his list unbeatable? well the answer is two fold. First, its for charity and the solider walking again will be grateful beyond words. Second, there are going to be offensive and defensive assets.
Each team will consist of two players with two armies. Each army will be 100% completely independent of the other. (i.e. no sharing of special rules what so ever. Debuffs with the same name do not stack between teams and opponents. More to come in the FAQ)
Each army will have the minimum of 1 HQ, 1 Troops and a max of 1,000 points to spend in the FoC. The armies will be sharing their teams’ FoC. (i.e.: 2/3/6/3/3, and yes Space Wolves players still benefit from their HQ bonus for their army only.) (again more to come in the FAQ)
We are selling tickets for $50 per team, and up to 100% of the entry fees will be added to our total donation. If you cannot participate in the event and still want to support us please visit our Wounded Warrior Donation page and send money directly to them. Follow this link to that site Follow me here.
This event has really special meaning to me and I can tell you from personal experience that this organization deserves as much support as possible. Please come by and show that support at the Con, and once again if you cannot make the event then donate online via the link above.
