|sportsmanship, painting and comp|
Errr no thanks the minute comp and sportsmanship get involved i start to get worried about the Happiness Patrol
My last run in with Kandyman
didn't end so well.
Besides i grow tired of the fun nazis telling me how to play 40K.

Whatever hoss. Bobby and his crew run a good show. No need to make a stink about it.

Painting is good for the hobby, as long as there is a best general prize so that ppl who aren't painted can still get something. Their comp system is actually very well thought out and fair.
Anyways, I will be there for this one, probably with some Eldar.

Thank you for the positive feedback on our system.
We know there are folks who don't like painting and comp, etc. Feel free not play, no hard feelings. I often feel the same about Battle Point only tourneys. GW, with all its faults is about the hobby, thats why they come unpainted. Our philosophy is to keep it about the hobby and the gaming.
Hopefully you may give our tourney a try some time and see how our comp system works.

WYSI just doesn't like picking up a paintbrush, that's all. He's just about the beating of faces... :lol:
While I generally don't like the idea of comp myself, I'm a bit more open-minded than my brother and I'd be interested to see what your system is like.

The comp system we use is based on the following:
1 to 25 : 1 being the hardest army ever developed to 25 being a fluffy bunny.
There will be 5 scores, 1 from you judging your own army, 1 from each opponent, and 1 from the tourney judge.
We then drop the highest and lowest and average the other 3 for your final comp score.
We use this score in the overall category and in the Best Army category (which is combined with painting). We use this same system for Fantasy and 40K and have been using it for over 4 years.

Intersting system. I was worried it might be something like the Swedish Comp system, which has rigid points costs for every unit, huge penalties for the most powerful units from your book, and MASSIVE penalties for spamming units. For those who haven't heard of it, here's a link to Kriby's blog post about it.
The system you're using seems to be more along the lines of Panel Comp, although it's primarily scored by your opponents rather than an anonymous, invisible group of judges.
I do like that you drop the highest and lowest scores. Everyone is going to be more inclined to score themselves low by saying to themselves, "Well, Razorspam's not THAT broken. There are ways to beat this." Also, dropping the lowest balances out the possibility of getting a bad score from someone who got upset because your list was the exact counter to what they brought.

Wanted to say...thanks for the 12 gamers who showed up to battle it out today.
There were some terrific fights. We had an abundance of Space Marine and Grey Knight players, but in the end it was Todd Craig's Tyranids that took Best Overall.
Eddie Kraff took Best General with his Eldar. James McCoy took Best Army with his Chaos Space Marines, and Preston Jones took Best Sportsman with his Grey Knights.
Again, congrats and thanks for coming out.
