Wednesday Warriors at Good Games Melbourne
Name: Wednesday Warriors
Location: Good Games Melbourne (365 Lonsdale St, Melbourne)
Time: 12pm-1:30pm every Wednesday
Army Size: 750 points
Let me introduce to you Wednesday Warriors, a lunchtime 40k meetup in Melbourne CBD. For all of you who aren't getting enough 40k in your week, this is an opportunity to squeeze in an extra game without impacting on your busy schedule.
If you are unfamiliar with the Good Games venue, let me assure you that it is excellent for our purposes. It's in the heart of the city, spacious, quite empty at lunchtime, and has 6'x4' boards with plenty of terrain - enough for 4-5 tables I reckon. Most importantly, the staff are always friendly and relaxed I spoke to the owner and he was happy to have us use the space.
It's all very casual, just rock up with an army and find an opponent, or organise matchup on WAU to ensure a game. Or just come down to talk some 40k strategy and watch the pretty figurines fight.
The default game format is at 750 points with a modified force org of 1 HQ, 2-4 Troops, and 0-2 Elites/Fast Attack/Heavy Support. Defence Lines and Bastions only are allowed for Fortifications. Allies are not allowed. Missions are determined randomly from the book, but use 3 objectives rather than D3+2. Warlord traits are in, but mysterious terrain and objectives are out for simplicity.
Of course if you and your opponent agree you can play anything you like. These guidelines are intended to make it easy to quickly organise a game, and for those games to run in a short period of time.
Battle Bunker Joel and I have given the format a test run and took about 75 minutes from setting up the board to packing away (That was with armies of average size, not Orks or Guard). If you can take the occasional long lunch then why not come down and join us any Wednesday.
Please post on the WargamerAU thread if you are coming down or have any questions...
