Marine Birthday Tournament

Post  fulange on Fri Nov 04, 2011 4:35 pm

As some of you may know, the anniversary of the greatest of days in the history of mankind is quickly approaching. The birthday of the United States Marine Corps is this coming this Thursday the 10th. I, as a Marine, would like to celebrate it. I invite all 40k players to aide me!

Because the birth year is 1775, thats how many points we will play with. Because this is a day of celebration for Marines both on and off the table, all Marine models will likely be drunk, and thus gain the "Stubborn" Rule for free, but will also suffer from the "Drunk" rule (see below). Im up for doing this tourney (or just a day of kicking each other's asses) either this Sunday or the next. What do yall think?

The Drunk Rule: A the start of the game, roll a d6 for each unit. For each unit that rolls a 1 make a leadership check. For each point you fail the check by, the unit suffers a wound (saves allowed) as some members of the squad are passed out drunk and the others failed to carouse them into action.

Edit: There Will be Cake (although i cannot promise the cake is not a lie lol)

Of course they do, a Marine is a Marine no matter how twisted by the warp! There is a unanimously accepted tradition that on the 10th of november every Marine, retired, or in a fighting hole, finds something similar to cake, cuts it, drinks a drink and toasts our birthday. For space Marines, the celebration waits til the 13th lol.

How could I miss this?

Might even put together an army list that makes no sense what so ever just to highlight the fact that Space Vikings (Wolves) drink waaaay to much, special occasions included.

I'm pretty sure the 13 is the Jaks tourny. That means plenty of people will be there to celebrate. Not sure if the rules will work with tourny. But as a proud member of the USCG ill gladly help keep my my marine friends out of trouble like our proud tradition Smile

I have a friend I grew up with in the marines. He was bush's presidential escort for a while and after obama been in office been overseas since...

I'll be there for the tournament this sunday so all these marine players can call me xenos scum. Will anyone have a problem with me using 2 razorwing jetfighters as doomscythes for necrons for the tournament? They're painted the same color scheme I started painting my necrons as. Just wanted to check with everyone about it since they don't have the model released for the doomscythes yet.
