Default 'Ard Boyz 2008

This is a twofold topic... the first is pretty straight forward:

Who among us is entering the 'Ard Boys tourney on Saturday, September 13th of 2008? What army will you be fielding, and where are you playing?

Myself, a Tau army, and I'll be at Gnome Games, Green Bay WI... hope to see anyone else from here there!

Secondly, and this is a big one:

I have a question concerning the 'Ard Boyz tourney itself... according to word of mouth, it will be utilizing Apocalypse rules, to justify the points; however, according to the official 'Ard Boyz rules, they are going to be using the 5th Edition rulebook; there was no mention of Apocalypse or mixed armies (a list of approved codex and chapters was provided, though).

So, by what I have been reading, this will be a 2,500 point army, non-mixed, non-Apocalyptic, correct? How would it even be possible to organize that large of an army utilizing the Force Organization charts?

Here is the link to the rules, PDF format, straight from Games Workshop:

So, if anyone has any idea on this, please let me know, so I know how to organize and set up.

Well, if it works like last year's 'Ard Boyz, it's just standard rules with lots of points. 2500 is the top end of reasonable for regular rules, but it can be done. You'll use most of your Force Org Chart entries, but at least you won't have a hard time finding points for your favorite toy.

2500pts isn't too hard depending on what army you field. I can fill an Inquisition force of 2500 in no time. in fact I play alot of 2250 games, and even then I feel like I'm under fielded when it comes to all the stuff in my box, be it space marines or Grey Knights ect...

After looking at the rules and such It would seem that they basically want you to Field As much as you can with a standard organization, the points limit seems to be set with keeping some form of Limitations for those armies that CAN field well over 2500pts with one organization.

Just my 2c...keep discussing

i wont be playing (not nuff points) but i will be there... my local hobby store in independence is hosting it ;D

but if you are having trouble getting 2500 points, take more wargear, it will probably stretch a lot of armys like that

My biggest concern, though, is the 5th Edition rules... since now only troops are allowed to hold quarters, or take objectives, it kind of puts a damper on things (like a Crisis suit heavy army).

But, I suppose, by eliminating all of the opponents troops would be just as effective...
