This is a doubles tournament where 2 players form a team. They play the same game and as a team, on the same table at the same time. Players may move models and units from their combined force in any order they wish during their turn.
Former Blood & Oil Champions must team up with someone who is new or regularly finishes in the lower half of the tournament tables. Example Spoony Ben (Yes, he has 4 wooden spoons to his name)
Games will be played on 4’ x 4’ tables using terrain pre-set by the tournament organisers. There will be 3 games over the course of the weekend, each lasting a maximum of 1 3/4 hours.
It's our first Tournament since the Nationals (50 man yearly tournament) and it's a good one! We have a full house of 16 players, luckily for us 4 players dropped out including the current champion Sonny otherwise we would have really been struggling for space.
Next time we will have 2 extra tables built just in case more people turn up.
For those people interested Blood And Oil is our quarterly Warmachine and Hordes Steamroller tournament. This month's event is a 50 point one as lots of people are gearing up for the Masters (Where Gifts For Geeks will have a stall) and the Student Masters.
