Wicked GT Countdown – 5 days and counting!

Posted on Updated on

We are now just 5 days from the opening night of the Wicked GT! Lots of stuff to cover so I’ll get straight to it!! The excitement is rising and the anticipation is building! This Friday can’t get here quick enough!

Here’s some quick bullet points:

Best General Categories! It seems like there’s been some confusion surrounding the Best General categories and how they came to be and also how these categories coincide with Swedish Comp grades. Let me address this right here and now and say this – THE SWEDISH COMP GRADE THAT YOUR ARMY RECEIVED HAS NOTHING AT ALL TO DO WITH ROUND 1 PAIRINGS. YOUR GRADE WAS USED SOLELY TO DETERMINE WHICH CATEGORY OF BEST GENERAL THAT YOU WOULD FIT INTO. That said, we have broken down the Best General Categories into Wicked Witches, Tin Men, and Scarecrows. Note that 1st place in EACH of these categories will receive a trophy for coming out on top of all other armies within their category. After going through each army list and giving each one a grade, the Best General Categories are broken down like this: Good luck to all the Army Generals!!!

 

Wicked Witches Tin Men Scarecrows
Alex Bade Adam Haecker Austin Murrey
Chad Moore Michael Pennington Brian Hunter
Eric Mercer Noble Diven Chris McArthur
Jason Westerhold Mike McGuire Chris Westerhold
John Pike Leland Gross Erik Wilmeth
J.T. Grachek James Valdez John Beshenich
Kenneth Eubanks Eric Rennie Kurt Armstrong
Michael Grudowski Chad Graham Rob Woodrum
Patrick Beshenich Andrew Porter Travis Shore
Randall Hill Mark Giebler
Dennis Nix

 

– Round 1 Match-ups!!! And now the moment everybody has been waiting for! Here are the Round 1 match-ups for Saturday! Keep in mind that Swedish Comp had nothing at all to do with this. These match-ups were chosen 100% at random. When you come in to set up your army you can find this list posted so make sure you set up your army on the table that you are designated. The printed out list will have the table numbers on it as well so you’ll know where to go. Please note that if we get new players between now and then they will be matched up together, unless they are from the same group. So this list could change… But for now, here it is:

Round 1:

Eric Rennie vs. Travis Shore

Randall Hill vs. Noble Diven

Mike Grudowski vs. Chad Moore

Chad Graham vs. Chris Westerhold

Patrick Beshenich vs. Erik Wilmeth

Dennis Nix vs. Michael Pennington

Kenneth Eubanks vs. Rob Woodrum

Adam Haecker vs. Jason Westerhold

J.T. Grachek vs. Austin Murrey

Alex Bade vs. Eric Mercer

Mike McGuire vs. Brian Hunter

Chris McArthur vs. Leland Gross

Andrew Porter vs. Kurt Armstrong

James Valdez vs. John Pike

John Beshenich vs. Mark Giebler

– The official Wicked GT 2015 Players Packet has been revised in some areas. You can check out the latest revision by visiting here! The changes are in red.

  Player Packets! Attached are the gems and arcs of visibility that each player will receive upon completing registration. There are 5 wound markers, 5 warpstone tokens (to be used in one of the scenarios), a blue gem that has your Player Number (for use in raffles) and a token for the Tin Man, Lion, and Scarecrow (also used in a scenario). These gems and gem bag, as well as the arc, are yours to keep after the GT. Use the wound markers for your own games in the future and if you’re a skaven player then the Warpstone tokens should come in handy too! In addition, each player will have a folder that contains the players packet, your army lists, a lores of magic reference sheet, and the sheets needed for sportsmanship and after each game. You will receive all of this when you get to the registration booth. Lastly, you’ll have your very own lanyard that comes with all your pertinent information for the Wicked GT! Take a look!

Wicked GT Countdown – 10 days to go!

Posted on Updated on

We are now just 10 days from the opening night of the Wicked GT! We are continuing to make last minute preparations for all that we need to make this GT a success. Currently, we have 30 generals ready to do battle on Saturday and Sunday! Make sure to get your last second items done and ready to go! It’s going to be great!

Here’s some quick bullet points:

Schedule! I wanted to add this to the top post in order to spread the word on how the schedule will work. Upon arriving at the Best Western you can make your way back to the game room (we’ll have signs posted) and take care of your registration. We’ll have a folder, some goodies to hand out, and your table assignment so you can then proceed to your table and set up your army if you’d like. We’ve worked with the hotel and they are going to lock the room overnight so you are free to leave your stuff there on Friday night (if you show up early to register) and / or Saturday night. The venue will be available for early registration beginning at 5:00 PM on Friday, May 15th and will be open until midnight for you to register. There will be open gaming as well so bring your armies! Otherwise it will be general BS’ing and hanging out. Come on up and have a beer!

– Army Lists! There have been a few people ask to make some last second changes to their list and that’s ok. I’ll do my best to accommodate any changes that need to be made but I’ll have to draw a line in the sand at some point (probably 3-4 nights before the GT) so that I can begin printing them out to add to your players packets. If you have any changes please let me know sooner rather than later so we can do our best to accommodate you. Thanks!

Custom Arcs of Visibility! Thanks to Adam over at Applied Perspective! He was able to work with  us and create these customs half arcs of visibility so that we can hand out during the Wicked GT. Every participant in the Wicked GT will walk away with one of these in their players packets. You can use these for all of your games throughout the weekend! Just another little something we’re handing out as a way of saying thanks for making the Wicked GT possible! Check it out!

– Raffle! Everybody that signs up at the Registration Table will be given a number on a gem. This number will be your number for the raffles that we’ll be holding all weekend long after each game so make sure to keep this gem close to you in case your number gets called! We will hand out a few items after each game so don’t wander off too far! There’s gonna be plenty to hand out!

Scenarios: All 5 scenarios are now complete and have been posted. You can find them by following this link!

Beer!: The keg has been ordered and the bartender’s table is ready to go. We’ll have a keg of bud light on hand that is free with your entry fee. Additionally, we’ll have some simple cocktails that you can get if beer isn’t your thing. We’ll continue to hand this stuff out until it runs out! Remember to drink responsibly and don’t forget that tips are always appreciated!

Concessions: We’re going to have a small concession stand set up as well. This will have bottles of water, cans of soda, chips, candy bars, etc that will be available for sale. It’s going to be cheap so make sure to have some dollars and change on you in case you need a small snack to get you through the game!

 – Golden Toto Painting Competition – Get your entries painted! We’ll have a separate painting table in which the judges will be looking over all entries and we will do our best to get this done in a timely manner in order to have your models back to you as quickly as we can. In addition, the winners prize support has been provided by Bits of War so each winner will get product provided by http://www.kromlech.eu! Thank you to our great sponsor, Bits of War!
