It's that time again! Time for another WAAAGH! UK!
(Copy/Paste for the win!)


Just what is Waaagh! UK?

Waaagh! UK is an opportunity for members of the Waaagh forum from Britain and Europe (and anywhere else for that matter) to meet up in Warhammer World for two days of orkiness. Looking at pictures of models and reading people's tactics is all very well and good, but it doesn't quite compare to meeting them in the flesh and seeing their models first hand.


When and where?

Saturday the 28nth of October  and Sunday the 29th of October.

It will be held as always at warhammer world in Nottingham,20 Lenton Ln, Nottingham NG7 2NR, UK

What goes on?

The main event of the meets thus far has been the ork mega battle, which takes place on the first day of the meet (Saturday) due to WHW being open for longer. The battle has a "finished models only" policy, because big games are so much more awesome when everything's painted!


The second day is much more relaxed - mega battles are awesome, but they can be quite tiring! Sunday is a great opportunity to chat to the other members, get a close look at that model you've always loved, play normal sized games against scumgrods and the like. There should be some fun mini games to play, too.

 

Previous meets have had mini killteam tournaments played, if you want to play a specialist game or have ideas for one feel free to throw your hat in the ring to get a game going.

Around lunchtime on the Sunday will be the much coveted Golden Grot painting competition and Styrene Spanna conversion competition!
In recent meets this has fallen on the wayside, so it would be nice to get going again.



Who's organising?

No-one in particular. However, Dribble Joy, Dim Reaper and Skarnir usually act as if they run things. If you've questions then feel free to post them in the thread so others can add input.


Where can I stay?

Nottingham's a big city with plenty of accommodation; personally I can recommend the Castle Marina Premier Inn or the nearby Holiday Inn Nottingam, both of which aren't too far from Warhammer World. Anyone with details of other accommodation, get in touch (especially if you have a big house to crash at!).

Note: The Holiday Inn is a US chain and operates unlike the budget hotels like Travelodge and Premiere Inn. They will ask for a credit test when you check in so they know you can cover any small charges to your room. From memory this is £50, which is charged to a card and then reimbursed. Cash is not acceptable.


How much does it cost?

Nothing! That is; the event itself is completely free, although you will need to buy yourself food and pay for some accommodation over the weekend. You can also get forge world stuff from the warhammer world store, so if you're after that kind of thing then don't forget the money for it.
From personal experience you'll need about £20 - 30 a day for food/drink (depending on how much you eat/drink).


So what do I bring?

Yourself, your models, food/money for it and, if possible, a name badge. You're welcome to bring as much of your miniature collection as you'd like; you can only use painted stuff on the Saturday, how big the game will be will be discussed in this thread.

 

(I would remind players to bring dice,Tape Measure, rule book, templates and any rules needed to field their army.

If you are in need of rules reference for the more exotic units feel free to contact myself Dim or Dj. cheers skarnir)

For Sunday things are a little looser, with the competitions, games run by others or general gaming. Again, keep an eye on this thread for what you might need.


I'm a minor, can I come?

Those under 16 must be accompanied by an adult. I don't mean dropped off by your parents and/or handed over to us, I mean there all day.
We've had problems in the past. It sounds harsh, but WE are not responsible for you.


Something else?

Have I missed something? Have you asked a question in the thread and I've not noticed?, if so PM me, Dim or Dribblejoy.


New this year?

In the past new people have worn name badges with their forum name and their real life name on them.


Other wise simply find the table which has been reserved by a waaagh member we'll ask the staff to put the UK waaagh  on the card as well to make things easier

 

We have booked J'maigen Bridge for the Saturday and 4 tables for Sunday.
Alternatively, just look for a bunch of people standing around with an inordinate amount of ork models and being loud.

 

Having gotten in contact with warhammer world boardgames associated with warhammer may be played in the venue, most likely in bugmans as the rest of the tables are booked out.

 

Gits wat is going

I have a question,

 

Can we bring modified vehicles to Warhammer World, like ones made from bits and plasti-card etc...

 

I mean how far does the rule "its got to be 100% GW product" go?

 

If I can get the weekend off and a suitable amount of stuff painted I'll be interested in attending too

 

Cheers

They haven't had any issue's with Badfang's stuff, Da Krawla or anything else in the past. We certainly don't have a problem, if anything we encourage it (so long as it's clearly 'Orky').

Talking about kustom vehicles what is our official position on the stuff we lost in the 8th? I'm talking about things like Kustom Battle Fortresses, forgeworld planes, kustom stompas that lost their gear (deff arsenal for one), junkas, etc?

Hopefully FW will have the rules for missing stuff out by then.
If not, I'm sure we can come up with some rules.

Speaking of which, Da Kreawla's rules are nearly done, then we can talk about Smoggy and/or Orkzilla.

I'll be bringing the DeffSkulzz and SunBurnz to this one, want to try out my new mostly GW/FW nobzbikerz, let Si see my entry for his build a buggy contest and I might have a couple more walkers if I can get at my workbench >:

Looking at GW's roolz for stompas in Xenos 2 I'm not really seeing anything that looks like Smoggy - what they have got looks VERY fragile - only twice as tough as an ork boy :? Still, haven't actually bothered reading the game rules yet so I can't say too much - the only bits that they haven't got stats for is Da Glare ov Gork (a recycled video camera) and the Deff Arsenal (old hydraulic solenoid valve, electrical solenoid, hydraulic hose fitting, welded steel frame to support the weight - not a huge amount of GW in it, or the rest of the stompa either, GW's staff never seemed to have a problem with it or any of the other recycled scrap been tinz & Milliput I usually turn up with).

Or we could always wing it for a change :biggrin

Hopefully we will have a rules for units no longer catered for in the event pack(plus krawla builda rulez).

I hope to have the event pack done by the start of October, until then tells us what units you want to bring to the game and we can convert it to 8th ed for the mega battle.

Expect the game to be more structured with time limits per turn and such, I dont think we will run into any problems in regards to time as long as we get a decent start to the day.

 

more to be posted soon.

Thanks for the answers, I'm building a Meka Dread ATM but theres rules already for that in the Imperial Armour index. My stuff is very conservative by the sounds of it then :)

Da Glare ov Gork ... and the Deff Arsenal


The Gaze of Mork is in the kustom stompa rules from the FW book - it's brutal if it hits. If FW doesn't release the Deff Arsenal rules they shouldn't be too hard to export from 7th. Heavy 2D6, Str 9, -2 AP, Dmg 1?

Should have thought earlier but here's an example of the sort of stuff we bring to the table

I think 8th Ed. has prompted the purchase of many a d20 ;).

Though a kustom kownta would be cool to see.

Just out of interest, the only thing left for me to do for the vlog from the last meet is finishing the intro.
I'll explain more when everything is released.


Also; Anyone heard from or can get in contact with Cookie, r_squared, El Presedente, Gobsmasha and others?
