Here's the plan for the Warmachine & Hordes Journeyman league Starting September 6th 6:00 pm at Little Big Wars.
The cost will be $5 dollars per player.

I am making a few slight tweaks to the regular journeyman rules as are listed below.

I'm going to stick with MK III battle boxes to start.

The caster swap will get bumped up to week 3.

Points will be:

Week 1 - 0 points
Week 2 - 15 points
Week 3 - 15 points. Players can swap warcaster/warlock but that will be their caster for the remainder of the league.
Week 4 - 30
Week 5 - 30
Week 6 - 50

That will give plenty of time for painting if one wants to paint.

This is really to try to boost the WM/H community and FOR FUN. That's the important part.

If you are interested in playing please post here or on the FM Gamers Facebook page so I can get a idea of how many are playing so I can make sure we have the appropriate number of patches. Thank you.

Week 3 might be a hard time for the caster swap, especially if the new caster has less battlegroup points. I'm guessing most people who want the caster swap will already be ready, but without a points increase it could make the early league rough. Shouldn't be too much of an issue with proper planing, and guidance from more experienced players.

Oh, and count me in.

Here are the dates for the Journeyman league:

Week 1 - 0 pts Sept 6-12
Week 2 - 15 pts Sept 13-19
Week 3 - 15 pts Sept 20-26 Players can swap warcaster/warlock but that will be their caster for the remainder of the league.
Week 4 - 30 pts Sept 27- Oct 3
Week 5 - 30 pts Oct 4 - Oct 10
Week 6 - 50 pts Oct 11 - 17

FYI, if you have one of the 2017 50 pt army boxes for Warmachine or Hordes I'm going to allow it. The key is for everyone to have fun.

Probably in as well. Haven't really touched WM/H since last Journeyman League. None of the guys in Wahpeton seem to want to play anymore.

Holy crap! Good to see you're still alive.

There's plenty of room if any of the other Whapeton folks want in.

Skornes box shows Mak1 (+29)
Beast options for that are Gladiator(15), Sentry (15), Krea (7)

No combination adds up to 29, or even 25 to meet the up to -4 requirement.

What would you recommend.

Basically you play one of the heavies and the krea for the first week, so you are at a slight point deficit. Then week 2 you should be good.

Great time to jump in. There are a number of us who haven't played since last journeyman, so we are all equal in shaking off the dust:)

FYI theme lists and the free points associated with them generally are not recommended for this event. It really skews things in the lower than standard points format.

Let me correct my allowance of theme forces. Once we get to the 30 point game themes will be allowed. We don't have any Everblight, and I won't be using the Khador ones and those are the two factions who have themes are on the overpowered side at small point games. But I don't think we need to worry about it as we are all in this for FUN.

If someone gets all power gamer I will invoke the power of the "sock jack" (I put a old metal jack in a sock and pummel until they remember that this is for fun)

Any talk of doing a larger event at the end. I won't be able to play weekly, but would be interested in doing a tournament style day.

Yes, if there is interest I was thinking of running a 50 point End of Journeyman event.

Hopefully someone answers today

Is todays 15 pts just Battlegroup or open to units etc.

Looking at the modified JML on the pdf shows 15 pts being army.

Week 2 is battlegroup only. Week 3 you can start to add solo's and units.

wk 2 & 3 both show 15 pts.

So I am assuming that this would mean that if I add an 11pt beast, I have 4pts next week for a solo?
