Wicked GT Scenario Four now available! We are only 1 Month Away!

Posted on Updated on

Scenario Four is now available for your viewing pleasure! Only one more scenario to go and it will be released within the next few days. We are getting very close to the first ever Wicked GT!

Scenario Four: The Will to Survive

We are now just 1 month away from the Wicked GT! We have started to receive donations from our sponsors, making final preparations with the gaming tables, working hard to get enough terrain done, and working on some awesome themed tables for the Top 1 and 2 tables. There’s tons going on right now and the next month will go by very quickly so if you plan on attending the Wicked make sure to get your armies primed and ready! Here’s a few notes to be aware of as we enter the last month prior to the Wicked GT:

– Because of our rule to make all buildings impassable we have decided to ban ONE ITEM from this GT, and that is Fozzrik’s Folding Fortress. Please remember this when building your army list.

– Best Western has informed me that the rates for staying there will be valid up until 2 weeks prior to the Wicked GT. So if you plan on staying at the hotel you have until about May 1 to get the special booking price. Don’t delay!

– Beer! We are going to set up our own bar for the weekend. It will likely just be available on Saturday but we are going to have a keg of beer available that all participants will be able to drink from until it lasts. We’ll also have some simple drinks that our bartender will mix up for you as well. It’s all included with your entry fee to the Wicked GT, however, don’t forget that tips are always appreciated!

– The Painting Rubric has been added to the website as well in case you wanted to look it over and see how you can score max points. You can find it by following this link.

– The cost for the Wicked GT is $65 and you can pay via paypal by sending your payment to thewickedgt@gmail.com.

April 16, 2015 (TOMORROW!): This is the last day for refunds. If something happens after this date we regret to inform that you can no longer receive a refund. This is because the money is likely already spent in order to shore things up prior to May 15th.

April 19, 2015 (4 DAYS FROM NOW!!): Army lists are due on this day! If you have to turn in your army list after April 19th then you will receive a -5 points to your overall score, to be applied at the end of the GT. Please do your best to get your lists in on time. I understand that things come up, you may want to change a unit or two, or even bring a new army entirely. I’ll work with you on this so that no negative points are applied. If you work with me then we should be fine… but if you’re blatantly not putting together a list and waiting until the last minute then it really leaves us no choice so do your best to get me a list as soon as you can!!! We just need to get army lists in as quick as possible so that we can grade them for Swedish Comp (which will be used ONLY to determine 1st round match-ups). There should be no reason anybody has to start the tournament down -5 points.

 – Golden Toto Painting Competition – One note I wanted to add for the Golden Toto Painting Competition… If you plan on participating in the competition you can pay your entry fee the day of the Wicked GT rather than send a payment through paypal. It’s only $5 (or $10 if you have multiple entries) so this money can be paid at the actual GT. If you have any questions about this please let me know. Also, make sure to get your entries painted! Can’t wait to see what comes along down the yellow brick road!

Player’s Packet: All the information for the Wicked GT can be found in this packet ranging from the sponsor list, schedule, venue information, all the way to the scoring rubrics for Appearance and Sportsmanship.

Quick End Times update for the Wicked GT.

Posted on Updated on

Hello and Happy New Year to all you Warhammer fans out there! The Wicked GT is just under 4 months at the writing of this post so make sure to get your army lists up to date and ready for submission. Also start working on your entries into the Golden Toto Painting Competition! I’m excited to see what all comes from various painters from all around. I know that the Wicked GT is going to be great and we’re looking forward to putting it on for everybody and making it a great show to follow up with next year. It’s not long now, so hurry up and get ready to go!

I wanted to make a quick post to address the End Times. As I’m sure everybody is well aware, the End Times are upon us thanks to Games Workshop and their developers… They have decided to advance the storyline of Warhammer Fantasy! With this advancement comes new units / armies / spells / etc, etc, etc… I’m sure everybody has read through the Nagash, Glottkin, Khaine, Thanquol, and soon to be Archaon End Times books (seriously if you haven’t, take the time, they are good reads…) If you have indeed read through some of these new rules then you’ll know that a lot of new things have been added. I wanted to address these items as they relate to the Wicked GT. Here’s the breakdown:

– Characters / units / lists from the End Times books currently WILL NOT be allowed. This includes any and all of the new units that are in each of the ET books. This could change between now and the start of the Wicked GT with new books set to release in the next few months. If they do, we will make sure to address it right here on our website. The main reasoning for this is that these characters / units / etc are not “official”.

– The 50% Lord / Hero percentages WILL be in effect and this has actually been updated in the Games Workshop FAQ, thus making these rules official.

– The Lore of Undeath WILL be in effect as well, having also been FAQ’d. One addition to this is that if you plan on using the Lore of Undeath in your army list please have the book and/or cards available during the tournament.

Any other changes that happen over the next few weeks we will make sure to cover it here on this website. If you have any other questions pertaining the End Times and it’s effect on the Wicked GT please don’t hesitate to get in touch with me. Not much longer now! Hope to see you guys soon!
