What

Coasthammer is a one day tournament for Warhammer Fantasy Battles (WFB).

The tournament is designed to allow players to come together with other gamers and have fun playing against opponents and armies that they wouldn’t normally play. It will consist of 3 rounds of 2000 points games. There will be 2 hrs 15 minutes allowed for each game, including filling out the score sheets at the end of the game.


A Weekend of Gaming

The Tuggerah Community Hall will see a weekend of gaming on the weekend of 5th/6th March. Saturday will be the popular Gosford Shield Warhammer 40K tournament with 36 players expected. Sunday will be three separate tournaments: Warhammer Fantasy, Malifaux and Infinity.


When

The Coasthammer tournament will be held on Sunday March 6th, with set up, sign in and briefing from 9:00am and gaming starting at 9:15am. Gaming should finish by 5:00pm with awards and prizes handed out by 5:30pm.

Army lists should be submitted by midnight Saturday 26th February.


Tournament Special Rules

Line of sight special rules will be in place (eg "Hills are big" and "Forests are dense"). Refer to Players Pack for details.

Magic has a maximum limit of 12 power dice per phase. In addition there is a chance that if you get a spell off with Irrestible Force that you may not be able to use that spell again in the following turn. Refer to Players Pack for details.

Victory Points awarded for fleeing units and monsters that have been killed. Units at half strength or monsters or characters at half wounds give up half victory points.


Players Pack

The draft players pack is attached. I only expect to fix typos and clarify confusing passages.

Note that the Players Pack attached to the original post has been updated to v0.2.

The changes were to fix a typo in the Battle Points table and update Game 3 to the following
QUOTE

Game 3: Blood and Glory (Modified)

As per page 148 of the rule book, with the following modifications.

Game Length: The game ends at the end of the sixth turn, or at the end of the phase that an army
breaks.

Victory Conditions: The first army to break the enemy earns a bonus +600 victory points. If
neither army has broken by the end of the game, or both have broken in the same phase, then
neither army gets this bonus.

Breaking Point: Most armies will have a breaking point of two. The exception to this is some
Wood Elves armies.

Wood Elves armies that consist entirely of units with the Forest Spirit special rule and Great Eagles,
have a breaking point of zero. Wood Elves armies that contain a single unit that does not have the
Forest Spirit special rule (with the exception of Great Eagles) have a breaking point of one. Wood
Elves armies that contain two or more units without the Forest Spirit special rule (with the
exception of Great Eagles) have a breaking point of two.

The reason for the above change is that an army of trees can't take any standards which is a problem for players wanting to field a forest spirit army.

Question on line of sight: Can you see through models of friends and foe alike?

Question on line of sight: Can you see through models of friends and foe alike?

It doesn't matter if the models are your friends or foes.

The ruling on two ranks blocking line of sight is just to avoid argments and bad backs. I wanted to avoid "gamey" situations like units shuffling sideways half a base so that they can look between the shoulder blades of a unit in front of them to shoot an opponent.

If you actually checked, different models with different shields or from different manufacturers might or might not block line of sight. I'm happy that we check actual line of sight if the intervening unit is only 1 rank. Any more than that and I think we should just assume that "real" soldiers aren't from a set of 3 or 4 poses carefully glued onto square bases.

However, you can still have situations like cavalry models can see (and be seen) over the heads of infantry models even if the infantry unit is multiple ranks. Also hills and buildings could elevate the model's eye view so that they could see over an intervening unit. The line of sight ruling in only meant to apply to peering through units.

Sorry to hear that you won't be able to make it.

Hopefully there will be a Coasthammer III about 6 months after this one (I'm thinking of running one small WFB every 6 months or so should be reasonable).

I have done an email out to past attendees, and also posted in the main WFB forums to advertise the event.

If players are thinking of attending this event please contact me either via PM, email to mark @ gosfordgamers.net or SMS 0414 981 694.

The event is scheduled for Sunday week but it is looking like we are at risk of not having enough players to make a tournament viable.

Regards

I would play but unfortunately I don't have a 2000pt army to use and I'm not too familiar with the new edition rules. I will however be starting up fantasy again (3rd time lucky maybe) so I'll be in for tournaments in the future.

I have spoken to the Good Games Gosford store this evening.

Although only 4 - 5 people so far have indicated they are coming, the event will still be run. The hall hire has already been paid for the weekend from the ticket sales for the 40K event on the Saturday. The cost of the tickets has been reduced / reset to $20 and all ticket costs will go back to the players in terms of prizes / trophies.

Regards

I'll try to organise with Nox to borrow his knights if they are at 2000pts. But incase this falls through, anyone else got a 2000pt army hanging around the shop that I can borrow?
