Next Tournament: BoTCH

As the title says, my next tournament is the Battle of the Chumps at Maelstrom in Mansfield on 14-15 July 2012. You'll find the tournament pack here: The tournament is an interesting challenge because you play at various points levels during the weekend - specifically, two games at 1,000pts, two at 1,500pts and finally two games at 2,000pts on the second day.

Each game features a different mission and deployment, which all combines to make a rather unique challenge! The tournament also includes a few list-building restrictions, for example: - Named/unique units take up two FOC slots - No more than two of the same Elite/Fast/Heavy choice - No more than three of the same Troops choices In addition, each list at the increasing points levels must build on the former by only adding complete new units, rather than modifying existing units at all.

I intend to take my all-reserve Drop-Spore Tyranids to the tournament, as I think they may be quite competitive in a situation where the larger points armies must, by their nature, compromise many smaller units. Hopefully this will go some way to neutralising the advantage that low-unit count 'elite' armies benefit from.

My question is, what is the best way of going about building the three lists? Start with the smallest and add units, or start with the biggest and deduct units to make the smaller list? Please help!

  2. Hi Adam,

    Sorry about that - I thought it was the poster from the original BoTCH tournament!

    Where can I point the reference to?
