The attendees usually start to make a bit of noise about their lists at this time of year. Before I discuss the rumours I have heard on the grapevine I should point out that nothing I write here is guaranteed. Players have been known to mislead others and may well turn up in January with a totally different list. in fact I encourage them to do so and wreak as much havoc as possible.
Now that things are hotting up a few of the contenders are revealing their preferred armies. As usual Slaanesh Steve and Castigator are squabbling over who has the biggest holster and will have their usual side event deciding who will be top pixie! I hear that Nature Boy is reverting to character and using Necrons. Funnily enough so is Booma and I will probably go with a silly Necron list as well. Gaz jones is lurching toward Eldar and Alex is promising to take Guard! (I’ve seen the list and as a Guard player he is being very brave). Everyone else is pretty quiet but that is because they are all scared and a little bit faye.
I will be running a sweepstake this year rather than a tote. All names will go into a hat and on the first morning each player will draw a name and pay me £1 for the privilege. That should mean that first place will receive £15, second place £6 and third place £3.
