A Call to Arms WHFB

Calling all heroes and heroines!  Our next Escalation League is about to kick off, and this time around we are playing Warhammer Fantasy Battles (WHFB).

Have you ever wanted to command a troop of High Elves?  Or perhaps lead an army of the undead?  Would your mighty ogre’s make the ground tremble?  Now is your chance.

The league will have 4 increments/levels and run September to January.  December and January will be treated as a “bridge month” so as to work around all the holiday and student schedules.

Cost to join the league is $10.  Entries will be used to provide a closing pizza party as well as prizes for top league players, as well as a sportsmanship award and a painting award.

August: 250 points
Get your feet wet and try out some armies.  No dedicated list is needed and you can switch factions as much as you want.  This month will be unscored, so new players please try things out and experienced players may want to give something different a shot.

September: 500 points
Faction must be chosen prior to being paired.  Core units (min 2) and a single character of no more than 100 points is allowed.  For undead armies, it is presumed your focus of Necromatic power is off field.

October: 1000 points
You may drop 1 unit
You may adjust an existing unit, with no more than a 100 point difference from it’s former incarnation.
List composition rules:
Max: 25% Heroes/Lords/Characters
Max: 40% Specials
No Rares

November: 1500 points
You may drop 1 unit
You may adjust an existing unit, with no more than a 200 point difference from it’s former incarnation.
List composition per standard rules

December/January: 2000 points
You may drop 1 unit
You may adjust an existing unit, with no more than a 200 point difference from it’s former incarnation.
List composition per standard rules

The Future Is Coming

M15 Prerelease weekend is upon us, and we’ve got some exciting changes.
Register in shop or online: http://mkt.com/magelings-games/m-prerelease

First, there are no “packages” for this weekend.  Those that bought them enjoyed them, but they were not popular enough to warrant the stock levels required to make it an open option.

What are we offering you ask?

Midnight – $25, the most popular event of the weekend.  We pack the house for this one, and we will as always be giving a lot of stuff away.  4 rounds with our standard payouts.
Every player gets free entry into the 6:30pm draft July 18th!
25+ players FtV Realms
50+ players FtV Twenty
75+ players FtV Annihilation (claimable end of August when released)

Saturday
10am – $35, registration closes 10:30.  We will be running full Swiss with a top cut:
Payouts

8+ players 16+ players 32+ players 64+ players

Sunday
10am – $25, 4 rounds with our standard payouts.  VIP package available.

3pm – $25, 4 rounds with our standard payouts.  VIP package available.

Iron Man
So what does this mean for Iron Man?  You need to compete in 5 events still but you’ll note that the Saturday morning event may go quite long.  All the way up to 2HG, and that’s the idea.  If you make the top cut for Saturday morning, that will act as a whole new event for your standings.  We will count the BEST 5 events you have, with 3 points a win, 1 point a draw, and 0 for a loss.

VIP Package
This is new, and I’m pretty excited for it.  You will get personalized spacious seating as well as beverages, light food and an attendant.  All that for $25.  No taking your trash off the table, you don’t even have to get up for lands if you don’t want.  Need a fresh pack of sleeves?  Your attendant will get them for you and bring a register to your table for you.
There is limited availability for this package, so act fast.
