NOVEMBER 3rd & 4th 2012
Upstairs function room, The Saint George Hotel,
The 2012 Ultimate Tournaments are coming!
2 Morris Rd, Innaloo
The biggest WA miniature wargaming tournament contest of the year is fast approaching! In just a few months, the final contenders for Warhammer 40,000, Warhammer Fantasy Battle and Warmachine/Hordes will do battle at the Ultimates, where they will duke it for top honours in the biggest showdown of the year!
Note that this year the Ultimates have been split off from the WestGamer "Feat of Arms" event, and will be run separately once again. This allows us to better cater for the tournament players and focus on the competitive nature of the event without the chaos of running a much larger function over the same weekend. It also allows us to run Feat of Arms in a different, larger, more open format at a later date (more on this in the future).
With the final qualifying event results for 2012 approaching completion, we're now able to get a good preliminary look at who the likely contenders are for this year via the WestGamer Tournament League
ladders. All of the current placing contenders have been listed in the 40K
league standings pages, so go check them out. Full details on the 2012 qualifying process for the Ultimates can be found here
The event threads for each respective tournament are currently locked (to open in a few days on 1st Sept), but some preliminary details have just been revealed as to the points size and formats of each tournament. Find the threads here:
2012 Wildcard nominations
The nominations for the 2012 "WildCard" entries to the contest will open next Saturday on the 1st Sept. You will then be invited to head on over to a nominations thread to have your say on who you think is especially deserving of getting one of these lucky last chance entry passes to the event. Nominations will close by the 22nd September, so make sure you get in then and put someone's name forward.
Ultimate Warhammer 2012 format change
Players should note the announcement just posted concerning the change to Ultimate Warhammer qualifying spots this year. More details can be found here.
So watch out for the big reveal on Saturday the 1st September when the players packs and the event threads for each tournament go live. Not long to wait!
