Looks good - are you going just for straight knockout like the Warmachine tournament?

you can put my Relthoza fleet on the list.

im really in the same boat with my fleet.

now ive been rerading the rule book, yes odd me reading one, and i see they suggest the basic fleet box as a game starting point, and double that up to 1200 for a 'good game' once you have the rules under your belt. the 1200 being the value of two box sets and 'a few other ships'...

the rule book also seems to offer rules for campaigns and the structure of fleets based on race.

Only four places left, any more Firestorm players (or potential players) out there?.

GaryB - your friend also plays a bit of Firestorm, doesn't he? Not sure if he's signed up for the forum or not.

Hi Folks,

I've just come to a deal with KWI to buy his Aquan fleet and rules book. I will probably be knocked out first round but balls to it, please sign me up.

So the rules are fleets are 500 point and must conform to the fleet construction rules for each race?

Are custom fleets allowed? If so can we insist on seeing the fleet stats before the start of the tournament?

Looking forward to this though I will no doubt go out in the first round.

I know there are a few of the participants who have yet to play a game, so if anyone requires wants a primer game before the tournament begins to familiarise themselves with the rules let me know and I will set something up. I am going to have to start earning that Firestorm Armada Coordinator title Wink

Yes

Not for this first tournament (to keep things pretty straight-forward given the number of players new to the game)

Fingers crossed! Big Grin

Sounds good, I'll arrange a game with Philip.

Thanks Gary Bingham for offering me a primer game as I'm really jumping into the deep-end (out of the airlock) with this.

I will hopefully be picking up my Mini's from KWI tomorrow.

I have sent a message to Gary, Phil and Trevor regarding a possible game and / or practice session of Firestorm Armada on Friday the 12th of Nov.

Is anyone else able to make it on this date?
