NZTC Update

Okay, time for an update on the NZ Teams Championship.

Sixteen teams are registered and paid up which means the event is now closed at capacity. People can still contact me at if they would like to be involved. Firstly, real life always intervenes and it would be nice to have a group of players to sub into teams who suddenly find themselves short. Secondly, there is an opportunity for people to held with the running of the event. The Umpire Peter Williamson will be very busy and can certainly use some on-floor help, data entry etc. Again if you'd like to help out on either or both of the days, I'd love to hear from you.

The Comp system will be the Fields of Blood Lite Comp which you can see the latest iteration of by clicking the button at the top of the blog. This is a living document and is updated as new books come out. For the purposes of NZTC this will be the version as of 31 January 2014. Also only new books up released up until that date will be used (effectively January 2014 GW release). If a new book is released in February, the existing book and comp will be used.

This is shaping up to be the marquee event of 2014. We have two and a half teams coming in from Australia as well as the majority of regular NZ tournament goers.

I can't wait!


  1. Hi Pete In terms of numbers of Elven Bolt throwers: Does the rule apply to both races of Elves? Or only HE?

  2. Lol! We don't want 4 of those purported one-wheeled bolt throwers on chariots running wild and taking out ranks of monstrous cavalry by flanking them !
