Alright you gitz, I need to know who is coming to the meet as I need to know who is staying where and who needs to book rooms.
I myself will be and going and I know badfang has a room booked for himself.
 
Everyone else I will need to reply to this post to confirm they are coming.

I'm planning on taking a coach down as it's only 2 hours. Probably book a room in the usual travel lodge... this is if I'm back in England (I should be back by the 1st of October so the 20th and 21st of October should be fine). It's also my Birthday a few days beforehand so I'm sure I'll get some money from family to spend (I am 24 though so not sure if people even care about my birthdays anymore ).
As for my army, I'll be bringing everything I have fully painted which will be about 1900-2k points. I have more but depends on what I get painted in the two week's prior (this might motivate me... I can probably paint up another squad of 30 boyz if I try hard enough). Also depends on codex and points changes... could become a 1k points list for all I know if GW wants me to buy more models. XD
Do you need me to bring any Beakies? I got about a 1.5k point infintry heavy army.
Also this will be my first Waaagh meet up and (after all these years)my first game against an Ork player (apart from when I play against myself :'( ) so do be gentle with me. Also my first time ever to Warhammer World so forgive me if I vanish or you get a report of me licking the diorama glass.

From my experiences at the Waaagh! Meet i have learned the following.

1. Your army isn't as big as you think it is.

2. Case space is always at a premium.

3. Doesn't matter how many ladz you bring, by the end there will only be a few shellshocked boyz staggering around the table bashing grotz hiding in shell holes.

4. Your gargantuan invincible superweapon is neither gargantuan or invincible.

5. Boyz are incredibly durable simply by virtue of the fact they are the lowest priority target on the board.

6.Things explode, oh god do things explode!

I honestly have a pretty small Ork army due to my habit of selling and buying on ebay. If I want something I just sell something. Used to have 9 old metal killa kans I sold and 2 metal deff dreads... that alone would have been 1k points. Then there are my nobz, painted boyz, etc... I like to keep it at below 3k points as i never ever play above 2k points and I'd rather have that new shiny old ebay item I want to bid on. XD

Anyway, maybe if I force myself I can get 70 boyz painted and have enough for 3 squads, XD

But yeah, want me to bring Beakies to fill in any points? They're a custom mercenary style chapter so it would be lore friendly. But I doubt we need to fill in any points from the sounds of it.

Me DeffSkullz army is pretty 'points heavy' going off how few models I was able to put on the table last Orktober so if I bring all of 'em then you and Skarnirs' mate should be able to come up with a couple of workable forces from them :?

 

This is how it looked last year

but there's another Gorkanaut, 2x nobz mobz and 2x Waaaghbanna nobz already done + 1x Waaaghkopta, 1x battlewaggon and another deffdredd can probs be added to bring it up to something stoopid like 5-6k points 'worth'.

Oh man... how big is this game going to get? XD and how does it go? Is it 1vX or XvX? Either way my small warband would be honoured to die in a glorious charge of self destruction!

I also forgot my weird boy and Waaagh banner so defo have 2k points.


Good looking army... btw.

Yeah, more like 'n v n' - hire the biggest table we can and stop putting minis down when we run out of room in our deployment zones :lol

Can't see all the table either - everything to the right of 'Zirra is missing (about half our side or so).
