Absolutely. I'm hoping to get it booked in ASAP for that exact reason.

Anyway, it's looking like the 23rd is a little ahead in the vote... and do feel free to comment on feature tables too. In the absence of any opinions to the contrary, I'll try and snag Spyral Prime (which, apart from a couple of 28mm Rhinos embedded in it to mess up the scaling a bit, is actually a very nice table).

30th works for me, but not the 23rd (in a concert)

Duly noted.

I've also dropped discussions onto Ammobunker, Warseer and DakkaDakka. If anyone has any suggestions for other forums it's even half worth dropping in on, do chime in. I'm not necessarily expecting a huge amount to come of this, but it would be nice to be able to have 28mm players along as well and have a Grand Tournament where the "Grand" isn't just nominal.

*Blows dust off account*

Well, count me in for either of those days! I'll try and drag along some new guys as well.

Well dang! Anyone else feel like crawling out of the woodwork?

Right, I think that brings our current lists to:

23rd:
Cortez
greenstuff_gav (preferred)
RobSkib (+ possible newbies)
Van Helser

30th:
Cortez
greenstuff_gav
Heroka Vendile
RobSkib (+ possible newbies)

Tentative yes again, to either weekend.
I can't remember anything booked, but I'm not a diary-keeper, so I may already be booked.
So, I think I said this last year too, but I'll try and make it.

Unfortunately I just had another rattle through the cupboards and not only can I STILL not find my Gruss conversion, but SWMBO's tidied away my intact models too. The search continues.

Will there be an over-arching narrative to work with?
Even a very loose one would make it easier to put warband fluff together, since I've not had one up and running since I was a regular poster a half-dozen years ago.

a "theme" may help writing scenarios as well; i remember my usual GT games forge a narrative across the day but can't remember if there ever was plot guidelines...

If people want to collaborate on coming up with some kind of optional theme for the IGT, then I have no issues with that, but the IGTs haven't previously been built around any specific plot and I wouldn't want to impose restrictions on what attendees can write for their scenarios.

In any case, new votes added.

23rd:
Cortez
greenstuff_gav (preferred)
Radu Lykan (possible)
RobSkib (+ possible newbies)
TheNephew
Van Helser

30th:
Cortez
greenstuff_gav
Heroka Vendile
Radu Lykan (possible)
RobSkib (+ possible newbies)
TheNephew
Van Helser

The 30th is currently slightly ahead in the vote (with 8 names to 7, if I count myself - EDIT: Radu not available), but I will leave the vote open until I email WHW on Monday. If I'm optimistic, I might even have enough of an argument for four tables.

Checked, I can't do the 23rd, can do the 30th.

But I'm still not absolutely certain, so don't weight your decision too much on me.

No problem - there's a few people we might yet hear from, but it's looking like the 30th is most likely anyway, as Heroka isn't available the weekend before either.

Barring unforeseen circumstances, I can make either of those dates. As for an overall theme, I'd rather leave it out since, as I said earlier, I feel the variety of different scenarios makes up for it.

Blimey.

Right, that puts things at 8 names on the list for the 30th at the moment, I'm hazarding that Myriad may join Holiad, and both Gav and Rob may be bringing along others.
If all of those showed up, we've probably filled three tables already. I'm not expecting a full show (we always get a couple of people having to drop out) but that's not too bad.

On the backs of the small numbers at things like the 2013 IGT and Ancient Rites, I was originally wondering if we'd even fill three tables, but I'd like to have a few spare spaces, so four tables is probably the smart move; As much as I'd like to have loads of spare space, we've not needed more than four tables in years, and I want our booking to seem as reasonable as possible.
(And if we do later  find ourselves overwhelmed with interest, we might be able to add an extra table later or, at a pinch, split a large feature table down the middle and put a game on each end).

So, in the absence of someone hurriedly telling me otherwise, I'll drop them an e-mail in the near future requesting three 6x4 tables and Spyral Prime for the 30th of May, I'll tell them there'll be about 12 of us and we'll probably be crashing Bugmans at about 12:30-ish.
(I'm assuming we'll probably keep the schedule of only one game before lunch, particularly if we do choose to swap to three rounds).

I'll confirm as soon as they do, so that people can book trains/planes/buses/hotels ASAP.

while my +1/+2 are checking their shift patterns, is it feasible for players to request their GM game second / last, to help those new or who haven't GMed to play a couplea games first?
i know it isn't possible for everyone to GM the last game (or IS IT?!) but thought it may help those new to it :)
