GenCon Oz

Gen Con Oz is taking place in a little over 24 days from now in Brisbane, Queensland.
Announced on the discussion forums is the tournament for 40k -- based on the old Grand Tournament system. Some interesting snippets that I garnered from reading through the rules:

40 per cent of the tournament result is on battle outcomes
20 per cent on sportsmanship
20 per cent on force composition
20 per cent on painting

There's also a handicap system that's going to be used as well! Sounds like it pays to not go in for an over the top force under those rules.

The missions have also been posted in advance as well. That's fore-planning!

Wow. I'm really tempted by this tournament! It could be a good deal of fun! Mixed Daemons, or Death Guard...?

Chances are that taking Plague Marines will actually hurt your Comp Scores, depending on what they are and who gets to score them. They're just dead 'ard choices, that's all there is to hit.

I would read the handicap system, just to see how they're going to fly that. That could be a nasty surprise if you're not prepared.

That aside, it could very well be interesting. Just figured I'd offer a warning.

Excellent points. I'm edging toward taking a mixed daemons army now -- just for fun / and to show off some of my painting!
