Episode 19: Spring (Assault) Is In The Air

What a day, what a day.  Saturday, that is, April the 21st of twenty twelve.  Berks Spring Assault 3 day.  That’s right of course we’re back to talk about all the details revolving around this yearly event that holds a special place in Turn 8’s collective heart.  Opy, Andy and Mike are here to break the day down (with my help of course), the good, the bad and the … rainbows.  And as if that wasn’t enough, Bill finally reveals all the details on the “super secret” project he’s been working on.

    I would have loved to play against the imperial guard player Opy played in round one…. Turn 1 = 4 Monoscythe Missles 🙂

    and it was a Death Wing Terminator Apothecary for my Warrior (helped out taking his feel no pain from his unit too)

    Ah, yes! Death Wing Terminator, I knew it was something big.

    Hey there guys, great reivew and very good suggestions. I had fun running the tournament, but as you have seen first hand, it was quite an undertaking and didn’t exactly go as smoothly as I had hoped.

    All that said, there were some errors in the rules packets I did not detect until they were printed, so I just rolled with it. Armies on Parade was a huge hit and many folks commented how much they missed it, so it will be back for certain.

    We will also make sure that any more “special” missions undergo more play-testing before we spring them on people. Safe to say the swapping/traitor mission will NOT be featured next year. LOL.

    We will be hosting BSA4 in the same venue, that worked out very well, and we’ve learned some crucial lessons this year that should cut time down by at least 2 hours if not more. I’m also looking to add 15 minutes of set up time, thus giving 15 minutes to set up and 90 minutes to play for a total of 1hr, 45 min for rounds, which will buy the admin time but not distract from the overall event hopefully, balancing out our time issues.

    The biggest thing for us is to see what happens in 6th edition and we will give some of our changes a trail run December 8, 2012 at the Berks Four Diamonds Winter Blast, a fund raiser for Pediatric Cancer, 40K style.

    Oh and one more comment, as for the table awards, our judges voted on what table/theme they liked the best. Berks-owned/operated tables were exempt from this competition, or one of them would have won over “candy land”. We wanted to offer the award as a ‘thank you’ for each club, and each of those club members also received bonus raffle tickets just for helping us out.
