Another great year here at the Shiloh Slaughter.  All the games have been played, the scores tallied, and everything picked up and put away.  There will be may a story to be told over Grog and Ale.  There were several high points and some low ones as well.  Overall,  I declare this to be a success.  I want to thank the guys who helped me set up and tear down as they make a long day just a wee bit shorter.  I would also like to thank all of the guys who cam and participated this year....I hope you had a wonderful time.  I look forward to seeing all of you again next year.

And then there were 2

Important Things

I am back from vacation and have updated our list as I see it.  If there are any mistakes, you need to let me know ASAP.  Also, money and lists are due by Sunday.  If your list is not in by Sunday you will receive a points deduction to your comp score.  If you have not yet paid, or made arrangements, then your spot will be given to someone on the waiting list who is ready to come.  Please note that if you have any questions please feel free to contact me either by phone (479) 750-0133, email, or simply post a reply here.  I will try to get everything answered quickly.  Monday after lists are in, I will post Scenario 1, with Scenarios 2&3 following soon after.  Scenarios 4&5 will be a surprise.

Please check the participant list and make sure that if you have paid you are marked as having done so.  I have already found one mistake with my cut and paste fancy typing...Sorry Greg Harris.  Yes sir, you are paid and looking forward to seeing you again this year.  If you haven't paid or haven't turned in your list, not much time left to secure your spot and to insure no late penalties for your list.  Have a great Christmas and a wonderful New Year....that is if we don't all die a fiery and agonizing death this Friday.

And that makes 50!!!

Alrighty then, we have reached our cap and our wait list has started.  Please remember that if you have not paid your spot is only temporarily reserved.  If you do not pay (or make arrangements) prior to January 6th your name will come off the list and an eager person who has waited patiently on the list will take your spot.  Please do not let this happen to you.  Take care of your business.  I look forward to seeing each and everyone of you at our little bash with plastic men this year.  Oh, and a word of caution, beware of the one they call Hayne.

The Boss Man.

Hello once again from Springdale.  As we inch closer to the tournament excitment is building, lists are being compiled, money is changing hands, oh and yes there was even a pig sighting at the Mall this morning.  All the necessary elements are certainly coming together for a wonderful tournament.  Just a few quick reminders as the time draws close.

1)Remember that the deadline for lists is January 6th.  There will be dire implications if your list is late.  Also, money is due on this same date. 

2) As we approch 50 players, I will be starting a waiting list.  If you have not paid or made arrangements with me to pay before the January 6th deadline, then your spot will no longer be held and then the first person on the waiting list who ponies up money will take your spot.  We do not want anyone to miss out on the fun that is our tournament so please take care of your business.

3) Dice, Tape Measure, Rule Book, Army Book,Models, Deoderant, Antacids...all important things to remember when packing for your trip to NWA.

I look forward to seeing each and everyone of you at the tournament and if you need anything before then, just give me a shout.

We're 40

Oh well, I guess I should have said that we have 40 people who have now signed up to come to our little slice of Warhammer heaven.  This dispite not having heard from Georde, The Johnson Boys, Pete Picard, Donald Duvall, Dan Lindley and a host of other favorites.  If you plan on attending this year, give me a shout and let me know.  I look forward to seeing you all this year.  I will be posting one of the scenarios next week, and then two more the day after lists are due.  Please remember that their is a penalty for late lists.  Also remember that after the first of January if you have not paid (or made arrangements with me) your spot will not be saved for this here hoedown.  As always, may your dice be hot, the beverages cold and the women...Well we don't really know anything about the women at all do we.

2012 Comp - Official

Posted by Big Brian on October 23, 2012 at 5:10 PM Comments comments (2)

Well it is official.  We are not going to do much different than last year.  While I do have some general rules that I will be using this year at our tournament, the onlly real army comp that I will be enforcing will be on some magic items.  Please note that game boards and scenarios are being tailored to try and benefit the balanced army and there will be terrain to help against shooting and possibly other aspects I try not to stick my nose into your army building.  If I think that you have a particularlly nasty over the top list, I mighrt ask you to reconsider, I will respect what you bring.  Best of luck and I look forward to seeinng you.

Filling Up

Wow, Thanks for the great response guys.  Looking forward to seeing all of you.  Looks like we are going to have several new guys to our neck of the woods along with a lot of the old familiar faces, not saying that you guys are old or anything.  Don't forget we will have a max capacity of 50 so make sure your name gets on the list.  Actually that is a bit of a lie.  We can actually do more than 50, but I would need at least 56 or more before I could open the extra room.  Ah we can dream can't we.  We promise to make Hayne wear deodorant this year.  Just kidding Hayne...not really.

Making Progress

Posted by Big Brian on October 17, 2012 at 2:00 PM Comments comments (0)

Well, we are making progress on the site and on the tournament.  We are definitely not done, but we are making head way.  This year promises to be a great year, new hotel and new attitude.  If you have any thoughts or ideas or just want to shout out, go for it.  We are working hard tweeking scenarios and working on prizes.  The new hotel has a in hotel dance club, "Bobbisox" and they are a lot closer to the interstate.  Food is still within walking distance and we are working on specials not only at the hotel but also at local places for food and brew.  Please look for updates coming in the next two - three weeks.  I am looking forward to seeing all of you, both the old hands and the new players.
