I’ll be working this weekend to finish off the missing swag (taking a few days rest) and hope to make arrangements to get stuff out as soon as possible.

Another update to 40k and 8th edition for Wet Coast 2018

As previously posted we want to give players enough fair warning regarding the edition in play.

WE WILL BE RUNNING 8TH EDITION!

  • Currently, only the 5 GW indexes will be allowed for this event. Should ALL faction specific codexes be available by the end of June, then they will be allowed. Note that means every faction in the game must be released. It’s all or nothing!
  • Forgeworld is not allowed at this event. At this time only two forgeworld indexes are available, so in the interest of fairness we are disallowing forgeworld this time round.
  • Point level will remain at 1650
  • Armies must be battle forged, and may consist of a maximum of 3 detachments.
  • Missions will be 95% out of the book, with perhaps small flavour changes (after all it is WETcoast! ). They will be available for download here two weeks prior to the event.
  • This will be a 6 game event, adding a 4th round on Saturday so as not to mess with Sunday travel plans. Round times have been decreased to 2 hours. Im sure we will all be able to finish in that amount of time. Slow play will not be tolerated.
  • Matched, pointed, play will be in use. Rosters must be complete, including 0 cost items.
  • Terrain should be discussed with your opponent prior to the match, advanced terrain rules in effect and shall be the default.
  • Any officially published FAQs will be in play, up to and including the day of the event.
  • Further adjustments are possible, but will only be made to promote fairness and consistency through the edition change as more information becomes available. Watch this space!

Modeling and Painting

  • In order to be eligible for any prize support, all models in your army must be painted to a 3 color minimum. Primer counts as a color.
  • All models are expected to be WYSIWYG to a reasonable standard. Exceptions will be made for themed units or armies.
    • Using a proxy for a model violates our policy.
    • Using a reasonable substitute to “Counts As” another model, does not violate our policy.
    • If in doubt, send a picture in of a model to your TO in advance to ask if it is acceptable.
  • In addition, you will be asked to vote for your favorite army during day one. We use a rule of cool for amy voting, third party painted looks nice but if it’s themed cool and really seems well thought out feel free to give that army highest marks! Please leave your army on display during lunch of day one to make it easier for people to vote for you, don’t forget to leave your name out somewhere nearby!

Sportsmanship

  • Sportsmanship is handled with a Thumb’s Up, Thumbs Down format. We default games to a Thumbs Up from both players.
  • If your opponent was acting in an unsportsmanlike manner, which we define as being verbally abusive, physically aggressive, was more than 15 minutes late for a round, or knowingly cheated on a rule, you are free to give him or her a Thumbs Down on sports. This rule does not exist to express displeasure in a game because you didn’t like your opponent, your opponent’s army, or you had rules debates, etc.
  • A player that receives two or more Thumbs Down on Sportsmanship will be met with administrative action up to and including ejection from the event with no refund of the ticket cost.
  • In addition, you will be required to vote for your favourite opponents after your final game.

Update regarding edition in play for Wet Coast GT 2017

As previously posted we want to give players enough fair warning regarding the edition in play.

With all things pointing to a release of 8th edition by early June, we have chosen a “cut off” date of June 17th. That is to say, if the new edition is released by June 17th, then we will be playing that new edition.We feel three weeks is more than enough to transition to a new system, especially considering its similarities to Age of Sigmar as well as GW’s consistent preview teasers.

Here are the important things to consider if we are able to run 8th;

  • If ALL faction specific codexes are released prior to June 24th they will be allowed, otherwise only the base “generals handbook” will be in play.
  • Point level will remain at 1650
  • Armies must be battle forged.
  • Round time limit may be adjusted as the game is supposed to play substantially faster, however adequate time will be given to assure all games finish. If possible we will look to go to a 6 game event, adding a 4th round on Saturday so as not to mess with Sunday travel plans. As it is a new edition we want to make sure players are able to finish comfortably.
  • Matched, pointed, play will be in use.
  • Any officially published FAQs will be in play, up to and including the day of the event.
  • Further adjustments are possible, but will only be made to promote fairness and consistency through the edition change as more information becomes available. Watch this space!

Wet Coast 2017 Tickets on sale now!

Wet Coast 2017 is around the corner and tickets are now on sale!

The dates are July 8th and 9th at the Grand Villa Hotel & Casino in Burnaby. The Cost is $90.00 ($99 for 40k) (early bird price till June 1st) for the weekend. (Pricing will go up to $100 and $115 respectively June 1st onwards).

I know that may seem higher to those that have been to WetCoast in the past but there have been some changes this year over past years. Lunch will be catered both Saturday and Sunday and is included in the price. That makes it easier to schedule rounds as all attendees from all games sytsems will not be descending on the restaurant at the same time and causing delays starting after lunch rounds.

In Addition every player will receive a bunch of free stuff for the weekend. This free stuff varies from event to event, please check the www.wetcoastgt.com page for details for your event rules and for a run down on the free stuff. Pictures of each free package will be put up shortly.

Lets make our first tournament a Great Tournament a great turnout. Hotel Blocks are available for those who are coming in from out of town. I would love to see all of BC represented. Any person booked in the hotel block will be put in a raffle for a free Cruisehammer ticket per room night booked! More info on a free Cruisehammer ticket can be found here: http://cruisehammer.org/free-ticket-info/
More info on Cruisehammer in general can be found here:

Every event has limited spots, but spots can possibly be expanded for systems that sell out quickly!

Get your hotel room in our block!

Part of what allows us to offer food and lots of SWAG is the fact that we get reduced room rates for people booking rooms in our group.  Please use the link below when getting your hotel room.  It’s $159 a night, which is as good as you’ll get from any of the hotel discount sites.  More rooms means cheaper room rate which equals more prizes!

As an extra incentive this year, if you book a room night, regardless of what game system you’re playing in, we’ll enter you into a draw for a Cruisehammer ticket!  Each room night will get you one entry.
