Hey folks My Name is Sam Butler and I'm going to be helping to coordinate the Miniature Wargaming Tabletop content for PAX East 2012.

 

Last year (PAXEAST 2011) We had:

Warhammer Fantasy Battle 1000pt Tournament (three round style)

WarMachine/Hordes Steamroller 35pt Tournament (Baseline, restricted to three rounds due to time)

Warhammer 40k 1250pt Singles Tournament (three round style)

 

As well as Demos for all of the above.

 

For 2012 What additional stuff would folks like to see?

 

If you have a Tabletop Miniature based wargame you want to demo, or have a tournament for please let me know So I can Pimp it for ya.

 

I look forward to seeing ya'll in the Tabletop Miniwargaming zone.

If folks are willing I'd appreciate them testing out the following 40K missions. I intend to use three of them at Pax East 2012. I would also like to get some sugestions for more detailed "flavor text" for each mission.

 

Here are the Missions

 

Mission 1

Planetfall

 

INCOMING ENEMY TRANSPORTS

 

Deployment:

Spearhead. (modified)

Three objectives placed 12” apart along the center line of the table (short)

http://i67.photobucket.com/albums/h295/SamuelButler/Mission%20deployment%20maps/PlanetFalldeployment.jpg

 

Special Rules

Nightfight (Turn one Only)

Dropzone. All attacker units may be deployed via Deepstrike Turn 1, or move on from the attackers board edge. Any mishap results of “destroyed” from this initial Deepstrike are treated as returned to “normal” reserve (i.e. they missed their LZ and have to walk/drive to the battle, no Deepstrike unless unit is able to do so normally)

 

all Defender Units gain the Rule Scout, if they already Scout, they gain Infiltrate

 

VCs

Primary (15pts): Attacker Win More Killpoints than the Defender in the Defenders deployment zone at the end of the game. (Immobilized Vehicles/walkers, fleeing units DO NOT COUNT)

Secondary: Win (10Pts) Kill all opponent Hqs, Draw Kill one HQ(5pts)

Tertiary: Win (5Pts) Hold more objectives than your Opponent, Draw (2Pts)Same number of objectives

 

 

Game length

Standard Random game length.

(3+ for turn 6, 4+ turn 7)

 

 

 

Mission 2

Hold The Line

 

HOLD THE BASTARDS HERE. None Shall Pass

 

Deployment:

Pitched Battle

two objectives placed in the Defenders deployment zone 12” up, and 18” in from each short table edge

http://i67.photobucket.com/albums/h295/SamuelButler/Mission%20deployment%20maps/Holdtheline.jpg

 

Special Rules

Strategic Genius

The Attacker may Infiltrate one Unit not normally allowed to do so (No Transports may take advantage of this)

Defender may change the deployment of a single unit after all other units are deployed.

 

 

VCs

 

Primary Win 15pts D 5pts: Killpoints

Secondary W10pts D 5pts: Objectives

Tertiary: Win (5Pts) Kill an opponents HQ, (Both players may gain this objective)

 

 

Game length

Standard Random game length.

(3+ for turn 6, 4+ turn 7)

 

 

 

Mission 3

Line Of Battle

 

Are those enemy troops. GET EM.

 

Deployment:

Pitched Battle (modified)

Each player's initial deployment zone is the center 24” of the pitched battle 12”

Objectives: Three along the center line of the table 18” apart. (longways)

 

http://i67.photobucket.com/albums/h295/SamuelButler/Mission%20deployment%20maps/LineofbattleDeployment.jpg

(Known glitch image has the 24" and 18" distances reversed text list of distances is correct)

 

Special Rules

Line Of March

Every unit is placed into reserve in a “Line of March” each player gets two units a round, and every unit MUST be assigned a place BEFORE deployment. (IE Round one units selected 1, and 2, arrive, units 3,4,5,6 stay in reserve. This overrides the normal way for Demons to Deploy as they have already manifested and are walking around. )

Only HQ, Fast,Elites, and Troops may be chosen as the first two selections.

 

All Units still in reserve Arrive Turn 5.

 

Units with the Rules: Scout, or Infiltrate instead gain Outflank.

 

Broken Arrow:

After an HQ unit has been on the table for a full turn the controlling player may declare Broken Arrow at the beginning of their turn (Roll a D6 1-3 Nothing happens, 4-5 an additional selection arrives, 6 any unit still in reserve may be deployed) (I.E . Broken Arrow is called Round Two. Normally only units 3, and 4, would arrive, but the player rolls a 6 and nominates Unit 6 to arrive.)

 

VCs

 

Primary 15pts, D 5pts : Objectives

Secondary W10pts D 5pts: Killpoints

Tertiary: Win (5Pts) Kill an opponents HQ, (Both players may gain this objective)

 

Game length

Standard Random game length.

(3+ for turn 6, 4+ turn 7)

 

Mission 4

Gold Rush

 

All fo da Money yo.

 

Deployment:

Pitched Battle

Objectives Five crates of Gold One in the center of each table quarter, and one in the center of the table

http://i67.photobucket.com/albums/h295/SamuelButler/Mission%20deployment%20maps/GoldRushDeployment.jpg

 

Special Rules

Gold:

Each crate of gold may be picked up in the movement phase, or shooting phase by a model that moves into base to base contact with it. A unit may only carry one crate at a time. And requires hands to pick up the crate (a rifleman type Dreadnought would not be able to grab the Gold for example)

 

Beast of Burden:

If a unit is carrying a Crate of gold its movement is Reduced by 2 inches (min 1”)

If a unit carrying a Crate of Gold enters a Vehicle, the vehicle loses Fast (if applicable) and its movement is reduced by 2”

Crates may be dropped during the movement phase. This includes inside Transport Vehicles, in which case treat the Vehicle's hull as the Objective for purposes of contesting. If the vehicle is destroyed place the Gold as close to the center of the wreck as possible.

 

VCs

 

Primary 15pts, D 5pts: Objectives

Secondary Win 10pts Draw 5pts: Killpoints

Tertiary: Win (5Pts) Have more crates carried by any unit

 

 

Game length

Standard Random game length.

(3+ for turn 6, 4+ turn 7)

 

Mission 5

Race to the bottom

 

Your Normal general was abruptly recalled and replaced by “Adm Christoforo, aboard the Ocean Marketer.” The more stuff that Dies the more important the battle was right? Wait a minute? How is he running both sides?....

 

Deployment:

Dawn of War (modified)

Modification to deployment is no Limitation to what my be deployed first turn.

http://i67.photobucket.com/albums/h295/SamuelButler/Mission%20deployment%20maps/Racetothebottomdeployment.jpg

Special Rules

Self destruction:

A unit reduced to below 50% may be voluntarily removed as a casualty by its owner during his/her movement phase. It is then placed in reserve to return to the battlefield. Each unit may only be recycled in this way once. The exception are HQ choices as they have more sense than to return to a losing fight.

 

VCs

 

Primary 15pts, D 5pts: Reverse killpoints. (Each of your OWN units destroyed gains you 1 Point)

Secondary Win 10pts Draw 5pts: Kill all opposing HQs

Tertiary: Win (5Pts) Recycle more units than your opponent.

 

 

Game length

Standard Random game length.

(3+ for turn 6, 4+ turn 7)
