Fantasy Thursdays: Sneaky GW (NAWT Round 1)

It seems that GW decided to make a change to the rules for the North American Warhammer Tournament. I agree with the change in spirit, but wish they would have made a more public announcement about it instead of just slipping it in. Below is the announcement as it now appears on the GW site. Compare it to the original announcement that was made by GW in late November (link).

The big change is that fully painted armies are now required. Again, I agree with the change, but wish they would have made the change more public. Along the same lines, I have been to a few of the GW stores listed for the event, and so far, each store manager has no clue about this event. This does not bode well for the event in my opinion and makes me want to consider whether or not I want to attend it.

All North American Hobby Centers
February 27th or 28th
Warhammer - 2,500 points

Starting in February, we will be running a
Warhammer Tournament in all of our North American Hobby Centers over three
months. You will be required to play one game a month on a particular weekend to
take part. Check back for the date of Round 2.
Armies must be chosen from
one of the current printed Warhammer Army Books only and from the main army list
entry. Your army must have at least 4 Core Troop choices, and you may only have
1 Dispel Scroll in your list. All models must be fully painted and based.

Bring in the 2,500 points of your favorite Warhammer Army and play a
single game of Warhammer against an opponent of your choice. The game must be
played in a GW Hobby Center at any time on either the 27th or 28th of February.
Fill out a score sheet and hand it to the staff.

These score sheets will
be sent to our HQ to be verified and tracked. The highest scoring individual in
each GW Hobby Center after all three rounds have been completed will receive an
award. The three highest scoring individuals across the whole of North America
after all three rounds have been completed will receive an amazing prize, which
will be announced at a later date.
