Warboar Games DFC Tournament 18/02/2017 (BETA Command Cards)

PostTue Jan 24, 2017 10:51 am

Warboar Games in Bromley will be hosting its first Dropfleet Commander Tournament on the 18th of February 2017.

It consists of 3 games at 1250 points taken straight from the rulebook.
Registration is 10 am until the first round at 10:30 am
Tickets are £10 and available on their site http://www.warboargames.co.uk/

This will be the first tournament that will be using a Beta test of the new Commander Cards for Dropfleet Commander. All players attending will be supplied with the relevant cards for their faction. So we advise you to take a reasonable high level of Admiral to take advantage of these.

More details about the cards will be discussed at the start of the day and we would welcome your feedback on improving them for the final retail release.

SO JEALOUS!

I can't wait to hear how the cards work out.

Any chance of getting previews or sneak-peak style teasers of a few cards? It could build a lot of hype for the cards if there were teasers between now and release...

Or any chance of having the beta cards available to the public online? We could offer all sorts of helpful feedback, useless criticism, overanalytics, catastrophizing about how the game is ruined.... maybe I didn't sell that well ;)

Possibly nearer the time and/or shortly after the event, we may release some publicly. But we will also ask for feedback from our Talons first.

who is signed up for this one? I've signed up but struggling to choose which fleet to take. I've got enough UCM painted up but there is also a pile of shaltari sitting there unpainted.

Bring your most painted fleet :) it's always nice to see fully painted models across the tables!

Although it is a tournament it isn't aimed at being super hardcore so I wouldn't worry about picking specific factions to gain advantages

i think he was more intend on faction spread beeing as equal as possible for the beta use of the cards to be representative, as in: all UCM not much testing for other cards, too few of fleet XY too few testing of the respective cardset.

I was just being indecisive :) I've actually just opted for my PHR - half the fleet is painted so a bit more feasible to complete in time.

Kitbashed corvettes will be allowed. As the official models will not be out by then. Same goes if you want to kit bash a Battlecruiser providing it is obvious what it is meant to be. Also the model must be majority hawk parts.

An enjoyable tournament. Extra fun with the surprise of some of the beta command cards.

Interesting that some of them encourage you to go bigger in your groups (Relentess Advance I'm looking at you); I tend to avoid groups of cruisers due to chain reactions but may have to go for it.
