Siegeworld Productions and the Gateway Gamers Club have joined forces to bring you Siegeworld 2016! This event will be will be held the weekend of Aug 27th and 28th at the North County Recreational
Center (2577 Redman Ave, St. Louis, MO 63136).
We are looking to grow Siegeworld so starting in 2016 in addition to the Apocalypse battle there will be a 40K ITC Tournament and potentially other events (i.e. a WH Fantasy tourney).
Siegeworld 2016 will be a 2 day event. Players have the option of participating in Siegeworld for 2 days or they can participate in the 40K GT and have the option of joining Siegeworld on day 2. In this post I will talk mainly players participating in Siegeworld for both days. (For information on other events as it becomes available please visit www.gateway-gamers.com).
In the past Siegeworld has been known for massive games of floorhammer. Now Siegeworld is coming up to the tables! Yes, the battlefields of Siegeworld will be played on table tops. Siegeworld 2016 will be broken up into 2 to 3 battle fields. There will be the main battle table and 1-2 satellite battle tables. The main battle table will host the central battle. Here is where Battalions of Tanks, whole Chapters of Marines, and numerous Titans will clash for supremacy. The 1-2 satellite battle tables will play host to smaller engagements to gain control of either a long range artillery installation or an orbital defense relay.
Players with larger armies will deploy on the main battle table. Players with smaller armies (2000 to 3000 points with no Super Heavies or Gargantuan Creatures) may deploy on either the main battle table or one of the satellite tables (player’s choice). Extra Titans and Super Heavies may be available for players with smaller armies to use on the main battle table.
As I mentioned above, for the diehard Siegewoprld players we are making this a 2 day event. Tentatively Day 1 will be played exclusively on the main battle table in and will be at least 3 full turns. Depending on the number of smaller armies that show we may use the satellite table(s). Our hope is to not time these turns in order for players to engage with their entire armies.
Day 2 will begin with a special re-enforcement. Players from the ITC tournament have the option of joining the Apocalypse on either the main table or the satellite table(s) and players from Day 1 will receive special recycle cards to bring back certain destroyed units and/or be allowed to re-deploy certain units on the battle field. Day 2 will comprise of timed turns and we will target getting 5 turns in (more if time allows).
A couple of notes on models: All models must be painted to a 3-color minimum standard. This means that an honest attempt to paint all models must be exhibited and that 3 colors have not been simply applied to circumvent this policy. Also, units must always be represented by appropriate models. The 'What You See Is What You Get' (WYSIWYG) rule is in effect. That means all models (including scratch builds) must be easily identifiable as the particular choice they represent and that any and all weapons/options taken for the model MUST be clearly represented on the model(s).
The full logistics, rules, order of battle, etc. are still in work and will be both posted here as well as on www.gateway-gamers.com. So in the mean time, prepare your armies! And post or PM any questions you may have. You have a little over 8 Months!
