We've also decided that September 8th is going to be the next date for our Warhammer 40k tournament. I'll be making an event post soon but there were a couple issues and suggestions that came up in the last tournament that I wanted to address. First, round time and start time. I think that there aren't enough players making it much past turn 2 and too many times that we've gotten out incredibly late that we want to try starting at 12 and having 2 hours per round with the 15 minutes built into the end but also an additional 15 minutes prior to when we start the timer to get everything set up and deployed.

The second thing is confusion about our stance on whether we're strict on models being WYSIWYG, or "What You See Is What You Get." Essentially, we're fine with proxying weapons and gear as long as it doesn't obstruct your opponent from understanding what's going on in your army. This is an incredibly subjective way to go about it but there are already quite a few models/units in the game that have items that aren't modelled that one has to remember anyway. We're going to be more strict on proxying the actual model than just a weapon, though. Ex: if you're using an ork boy as a warboss it should be based differently and/or have a lot of flair to it that easily identifies it as not a normal boy.

To this end we're going to make Xander a moderator/judge during the next couple of tournaments to assist with pairings, deployment setup (if it's a wonky one), mission understanding and checking peoples' armies over for legality and if anyone has any proxies checking them over to make sure that they're as clear as possible.

Let us know what you think about this in the comments below and give us any general or specific questions about proxies that you have and we'll try to give you an idea of where we stand.
