The Old World Cometh Again !!! / Re: Tournament composition

The more you comp, the better it is to just rewrite the rules entirely.

Indirect shooting is good.
Blast templates might scatter but they scatter into other units.
Mortar is cheaper.

Sounds like you guys play with low points so there isn't enough units on table to block line of sight or scatter into.

These particular comp rules seem pretty inoffensive, honestly, and wouldn't really negatively impact any empire list I'd consider running in any case.

The Old World Cometh Again !!! / Re: Getting started with TOW 1000pts

So with TOW, your hitty infantry (both halberds and greatswords) make sense to be wider than deep.
So consider making the halberds 7 wide - think a unit of 28.
Greatswords donít need to be 4 ranks deep, but 7 wide is still good for them too. Consider taking them as a unit of 14.

That should spare you some points for knights or outriders.

Make the crossbows a detachments so they can support stand and shoot if the situation comes up.
Make the archers scouts for some interesting deployment options.

Donít but a lance if you have a magic weapon. You have to use the magic weapon, so you are wasting points. Also, no shield? Consider Charmed Shield for a single use 5+ ward save.

Otherwise, this is a solid list IMO. Welcome, and Good luck!

Likewise I do want to stress that I fully support organizers to do what they want but I also think that they need to worry less about being accused if bias. Its not like the blanket restrictions are protecting them fron the charge of bias.

But then you run the risk of being accused of biasing the game towards or away from a particular army.

But tournament organisers can and will put in the comp rules they think are fair - I can disagree and not go to future tournaments (assuming I find out they are on early enough) and deprive myself of an opportunity to play, or I can comply.

Australia doesn't have so many events that players can refuse to play without losing out.

They haven't said yet. IF its like the last big celebration Gotrek they did however, it will come with two bases. A "normal" gaming base, and that bigger display one. IF its the same.

Age of Sigmar / Re: Rumours and what's new to be expected of WAoS

Yes, yes, definitely the reason they aren't showing up in full via The Old World, GW's current business structure doesn't allow for it.
