We will be revisiting 6mm TY in the month of May,  100 point lists from all current books will be allowed.  Also, I will be planning a tournament on one of the last two Saturdays in May to wrap up the tournament.  Stay tuned for details.

Wow, when I left Mike seemed to be in a decent position.  Now I wish I had stayed for the end.

The guys at Adler hobby sent me a copy of their scoring sheet for league play.  I thought I would run it by you guys and see what you think of their scoring system.

Win 3 points
Draw 2 points
Loss 1 point
Scenario specific points (units destroyed/objectives taken)  I'm assuming 1 point per.

What do you guys think?

Just an FYI they are having some sort of swap meet at the store Saturday, so finding space to play might be difficult.

Matt, or Mike,

Don't forget to post a link for the tournament rules so people can look them over.

I finally got the brass 40mm rods in.  So now I should be all set for ADG.

So assuming everyone has gotten their three 500 point games in, tomorrow kicks off 750 points.  Games are now played on the regular 4x6 table and you can begin exploring the attacker/defender scenarios.  Oh, and Everything is available now.  Tanks, free units.  So have at it.  And I will be by with both 500, in case someone missed a game, and 750 points of US Airborne!

Upon further review, I pretty much need to choose between playing on Saturday or Sunday. I think I will choose Sunday and the possibility for multiple games.

No problem.

If you want to take a pass this Saturday that's ok with me.  I know your schedule is getting tight with everything coming together for your job.

There is a 40K doubles tourney at the Portal this Saturday, but I would think this game is small enough we could simply play on the tables in the front of the store.  Or we could let it pass for this week and meetup another day. I am also planning on attending the Havoc Tourney.  Registration is next month.  So a little more than a month for tutoring and I might be ready to give it another go.

It seems the scoring system for the winter league is definitely going to be open to interpretation.  But, I should think, that in an objective driven scenario, for which there are several Mike and more missions in Campaign books ;), Achieving the goal of the scenario would constitute a Major win in itself.  Unless there are multiple objectives captured by both sides, in which case it comes down to who had the most claimed. That would seem straightforward enough to figure out Major/Minor victory.  In Force destruction scenarios, it becomes harder to determine the winner as the two opposing forces could be different in size while still fielding the same points.  But since it's by squads or teams, 6 squads/teams aside regardless of the actual size of each squad seems, to me, to be a simpler way to count it out.  A four squad, or more, difference between squads players lost would, to me, constitute a major victory/loss.  A three or two squad difference would constitute a minor victory/loss.  A draw is pretty simple.

And Mike, Warlord does encourage players to write scenarios, and even submit them for consideration for future publication.  here's the link;  https://articles.warlordgames.com/how-to-write-your-own-bolt-action-scenarios/

Should I bring 500 points this weekend, then?

Not if you already have your 3 500 point games finished.  You can move on to 750 points.  Besides, I know you're dying to get that Churchill on the table  ;D

Ok, so I conferred with other TO's.  The Win/Loss should be used for the Objective scenarios (Top Secret, Demolition, Key Positions, etc)  A margin of 1 in objectives is a minor victory/minor loss.  A margin of 2 or more is a major victory/ major loss.  The margin should probably be used for the force destruction as well.  though that will have to be worked out between the players as some of us *cough*Matt*cough*  have larger forces.  So the margin of win loss can be adjusted by agreement of the players.  So in my one game so far.  I destroyed 5 out of 6 of my opponents squads, while he only destroyed 2 out of the 6 of mine.  a ratio of 2-5 losses gives me a margin for a major victory.  Draws still get you 2 points.  Scoring is something we will be working on as we play more in this league.
