(last update: May 9th)

Summary:

      69003 Lyon
      France
• Format:   50 points on Sat./35 points on Sun.

Overview:

The French Open is a Warmachine and Hordes tournament held in Lyon, France, on the 9th and 10th of July. The tournament is organized by the RTS gaming club and the Battle-Group.com website. It follows the Steamroller 2011 rules with a few exceptions, notably the demand for fully painted armies and the absence of assassination as a winning condition or tiebreaker. The event will reward the full hobbyist with painting and Iron Kingdoms trivia scores added to the tournament total.

The tournament consists of two parts, one 50 point 3-game day on Saturday, and one 35-point 3-game day on Sunday. Both days are part of the same tournament and follow the SR2011 Appendix Rules 3 Lists Required and Divide and Conquer. The time will be chess-clocked. Maximum attendance is 42 players.

In case of international attendance, the tournament official language will be English.

We at the organization team are extremely excited to hold this event and we hope to welcome as much French and European players as possible!

I've got some questions.

 1 - Can the 3 different 35-pts warcasters/warlorcks be the same as the three ones used for the 50-pts or do we have to play 6 different warcasters/warlocks during the event ?
 2 - Can we play the same list twice if we change the warcaster/warlock (if they've got the same warjack/warbeast cost of course ;) )?

1-Yes, the same set of 3 different warcasters/warlocks on both days is perfectly fine. I've updated the FAQ for this.

2-Yes

Why 3 lists ? Do we have to play each list only once ?

Can we consider Minions Pacts and Mercenary Contracts as part of the same faction ?  ;)

I messed up when assembling my warjack... twice! Both my Leviathan and Harrower have reversed Left and Right Arm and therefore aren't entirely wysiwyg (different from stat card). Is it a problem? Do they still count as "models correctly assembled"?

As long as they are painted, this shouldn't be a problem. Be mindful of signalling this to your opponents, though.

Otherwise, if not painted yet, acetone is good way to break cyanoacrilate super glue...

May 18th update: accommodation

A small update on accomodation that will certainly please our international attendance!

We were able to secure the following number of beds among players&friends:

Friday, saturday and sunday nights
A, 4 beds
B, 4 beds
C, 2 beds
D, 5 beds
E, 2 beds
= 17 beds total for these 3 nights

Saturday night only
F, 6 beds

Don't forget that beds will be dispatched on a first in, first served basis (international players first), so register as soon as you can ! And remember to bring a bedroll!

Lastly, these are just "real" beds, but if we go over our capacity, there will be room to crash on the floor (ie have an inflatable mattress handy if you're late registering).

A quick reminder to everyone: registration deadline is next Monday so get those bank transfers and army lists rolling! Please carefully read the instructions provided in the ruleset.

If you can drop us an e-mail once the bank transfer is done, it will make our work that much easier. Thanks!

39 preregistered players: thanks to our European, and especially Italian, friends, this is gonna be the largest French tournament so far! I hope you're as psyched-up as I am!

I ordered some models for the tournament from maelstrom games and a few of them are still "out of stock at the supplier". I'm afraid I might miss about 4 to 6 points on one of my army lists. Should I bet on the chances to have them in time or could I send you a "secondary" list just in case the models don't arrive in time?
