Sandgroper Cup 7

Image

Welcome sports fans to the 7th Sandgroper Cup.

This years event will be held on the 18th and 19th of May, at the Albion Hotel, Cottesloe. This year will be even bigger and better than last year.

> You can assign 6 normal skills, 1 each to 6 separate players
> Min 1FF must be bought
> Max 1 star player may be purchased
> 7 games over 2 days
> In the first round you may issue a grudge match challenge
> At the end of Day 1 there will be a 2 round draft of new skills/stats
> Cost $50

Exclusive Limited Edition Miniature
As per the past years, we are giving away a free miniature to all players. This year we would like to introduce you to Lord Zaandii the Grro'Parr . This years figure was again drawn by our artist, Christian Schwager.

Image

A sculpt is being done based on this drawing, by Sebastian Archer. We will have only 200 of them and the only way to guarantee you get one is to play in the tournament. If there are any left afterwards, they will be sold off.

Open Night
After the draft has concluded there will be an open night. This is open to anyone, not just the players in the tournament. It is your chance to play some social games of Bloodbowl in a great environment. Also available will be a Deathbowl pitch, some Dungeonbowl tiles and BB7's pitches for alternate games. You are also able to use different teams to the ones you are using in the tournament. You are also welcome to bring and play other games.

Sandgroper Cup Merchandise
We have been asked at previous events for different colour or styles of shirts. Also for other things like mugs etc. So this year we are proud to launch the Sandgroper Cup Merchandise Store :D http://www.cafepress.com.au/sandgropercup

Tickets are available for purchase now online at http://www.sandgropercup.com You can also get them from any of the Commissioners in person. You can download the full players pack from here http://www.sandgropercup.com/downloads/ ... s_pack.pdf

18+
The Sandgroper Cup is held at a Licensed venue, and therefore all players must be at least 18 years old, or have a legal guardian with them.


The only question remaining is...

Do You Have The Balls?

Yes i have the balls. More than likely 2 of them with chains and goblins on the other end. My ticket is purchased, team is decided, Goblins, now just to have them painted in time, and decide if there will be a first round challenge.

Once a few tickets have been sold, I will open up the challenge thread.

Question - what if anything has been done to address the feedback around the very late draft last year on day 1?

The schedule in the afternoon has been brought forward, and we will be stricter on time keeping. We have also done away with the overtime on day 2 final game, to make sure that doesn't drag on either. Hopefully this will help us stick to schedule better. You can also nominate someone to make your draft picks if you can't stay.

All info is in the players pack.

I'm liking this new drive on Khemri... keen to see how many teams we get and how high they rate.

Still to work out which team to take.

Well in which case you are a bit slow, as the Sandgroper site went live just after 10pm last night. :P

i thought it would be Flint Churnblade's head underfoot - u know, after what he did to Roxanna last year :twisted:

funny thing i just realised *spoiler alert*

early in the latest Gotrek & Felix novel there is a duel between a chaos warrior and a trollslayer - with similar results :lol:
