WotR: Forging of Fates

Forging of Fates is a 2000 points WorR tournament judged on wins alone (rather than the more nebulous painting and sportsmanship scores included in Grand Tournaments). It consist of preliminary games on February 6. Winners will advance to semifinals on March 6 with the finals in Chicago March 6. It appears our closet location for the preliminary is at Atlantis Comics (Virginia Beach at 757-479-5400 or Norfolk at 757-502-8954).

some thought s about last night's game

1. hope everyone enjoyed the game enough for a future repeat
2. though imperials won, we fielded about 1300 pts to chaos/necron 1100 pts. i would say we tied.
3. all special orders should have been declared in the beginning of the movement phase
4. brace for impact should be declared before any dice are rolled (attacking or defending as in turrets)
5. necron lightning arc uses the gunnery table to determine the # of dice to roll to hit (all targets are closing)
6. necron gauss particle weapons are lances (4+ to hit) with a roll of 6 ignoring shields
7. for each strength of portals a necron ship has, an additional teleport attack can be made. Each scythes can thus make 3 attacks per turn.
8. imperial lunar cruisers can exchange prow torpedoes for prow nova cannons for +20 pts per ship

Stony Point Refugees

I got this email from Casey Christopher the other night.

Hi there. My name is Casey Christopher, and I am sending this to you representing a gaming club called Stony Point Refugees. Most of you had put your email address in a list at Games Workshop, that they had assembled when they knew they were leaving. It was called the Stony Point Community Contact List... Some of you I just had in my email contacts also.

Basically, we are a gaming club, formed out of the ashes of what was once Games Workshop, at Stony Point. Our mission is to simply provide a friendly club, where others who wish to game or hobby in the Richmond greater area, and even those far away, can participate in helping, teaching, providing places to play, discussing hobby related issues, and more.

We do this through our forums, which can be found at the link,

We are an ever growing community, with over a hundred members now, that all have one thing in common, gaming/hobbying. If you have a desire to play, hobby, trade, sell, talk, or just hang out, we welcome you and hope that you find us helpful and hopeful for the future of gaming in our area.

If you are indeed interested, please take a moment when you login to our forums, and introduce yourself in the "new members" subforum. Its quite possible you will reconnect with some of your old friends. =)

We keep the site clean, friendly, and just ask for people to show respect and be civil with each other. Think PG 13...

We hope you find us helpful, and if you have any questions, please feel free to ask either myself, a council member, or a moderator any questions, and we will leap to the opportunity to assist you.

Thank you for your time.

Sincerely, Casey Christopher

He also suggested that we set up LotR gaming demos. Thoughts?
