Demonn
28-03-2013, 01:45 PM
currently I'm at work so I have no access to the my club's forum (IT guys in my company rudely block the site :smile:). when I get home* I'll try and find the galleries there and post you links.

*being Easter and all, I'll be in a rush somewhat these days as my and my GF's folks are coming to visit. so I won't promise it'll be today - next week at the latest (hope that's ok)...

28-03-2013, 01:54 PM

A small update:

1) there will be some slight changes in the 40k rulespack (regarding scoring) and mission objectives

2) there will be another category in the Black Queen Miniature Painting Competition. Category name: Flames of War (any platoon size entry for the game FOW will be elligable. Miniatures need not be Battlefront.)

as soon as the changes are finalized I'll post the newer version of rulespack here.

thanks for reading :smile:

we are proud to announce that this year we'll be sponsored by the following sponsors:

Cool sponsors mate!! guess Wyrd didnt come through?? Im gonna go look but Carta Magica? never heard of them but gonna head over there after this and see whats up!!

Demonn
15-04-2013, 08:18 AM
Carta Magica is our LGS :smile: doubt you'll find anything useful there (which isn't available over in the UK)

and as far as Wyrd is concerned, jury is still out on that one. :smile: and we are doing our best to get some other sponsors as well (as a matter of fact, I'm writing letters right now for some other hobby stores in Zagreb to sponsor our event and later in the week I'll contact some other international sellers :smile: )...

Normski
15-04-2013, 11:57 AM
Try Firestorm games!! they have taken on the Wyrd Leagues in the Uk I think? something to do with the rankings?? I overheard a conversation at the club a while back!! one of the tournaments was gonna fold think it was after the crash of maelstrom? The Owner of Firestorm stepped in and paid about 500 quid to keep it going!! registration i think it was??

tell ya who would know!! Neverratta on the forums!! she is the Wyrd Mother of the UK!! organises all the GT's maybe send her a message on Wyrd forums she may be able to point you in the right Direction??

Still without Wyrd you still have some awesome sponsors!!

Demonn
15-04-2013, 12:04 PM
I'm talking directly to the guys in the Wyrd US office but I'm guessing it has a lot of going to and fro as is usually the case in "larger" companies - so I'll just wait a bit. and besides asking for the same thing from "two directions" of the same company never goes well. they'll either come through or they won't (no matter which side I go from).
in the meantime, I'll do other sponsorship querries and depending on their answer you'll either see their logo or you won't on the v2 of the Sponsor list :smile:

Normski
15-04-2013, 12:37 PM
yeah good point!!

Wayland games sponsor events too!! so ya could try them?? I know they screwed Brett over but if they think they are getting sales they might go for it! or even Arcane Miniatures!! they all ship internationally so could be worth a try!! they can only say 1 of 2 things hey!!

good luck with it fella!! you have put some awesome effort into it so far!!

Demonn
26-04-2013, 08:40 AM
we just secured a new sponsor. we are proud to present:

Dear friends,


due to the demand to harmonize our rulespack to the new edition of 40k rules, we updated that part of the rulespack. The new and improved rulespack can be found on the same links as the old one.
Link with background: http://www.ums-agram.hr/app/webroot/dokumenti/AAS2013.pdf
Link without background (printerfriendly version): http://www.ums-agram.hr/app/webroot/dokumenti/AAS_2013_print.pdf


the changes are written in red in the rulespack for easier viewing.
The changes are as follows:
Army Composition
 Allies may not be used in your army.
 Equipment detailed only in Forge World’s Imperial Armor publications may be used. Exception from this are :GRAIA PATTERN RAPIER LASER DESTROYER, LUCIUS PATERN DROP POD, LAND RAIDER ACHILLES, CESTUS ASSAULT RAM, any SUPER HEAVY UNIT, any GARGANTUAN UNIT, NIGHTWING INTERCEPTOR, IMPERIAL GUARD HEAVY ARTILLERY CARRIAGE BATTERY, NECRON CANOPTEK ACANTHRITES
 Fortifications: only Aegis defence line and Imperial bastion may be used.


Scenarios:
 ™Round 1: Crusade – Dawn of war
 ™Round 2: Purge the alien – Hammer and anvil
 ™Round 3: The relic – Vanguard strike
 ™Round 4: The scouring – Vanguard strike
 ™Round 5: Emperor's will – Dawn of war
Note: Mysterious objectives will not be used.


Generalship
System to be used at Agram Arena Summer 2013 40k tournament will be a 30:30 System. Meaning a player can earn between 0 and 60 points a game, while 30:30 is a draw! Of course, the Matrix to calculate this result is important too. Players start at 30:30, then for every Victory point difference, one side get's +3 , the other -3 (so that the total is always 60) and if all your units are destroyed you get 0 and your opponent 60.






Also, due to the popular demand, we decided to add another category to our Black Queen Miniature Painting Competition. The new category will be:
Flames of War - platoon sized entries are allowed.




During this time UMS "Agram" also approached various companies for sponsorship and here is the full list of our sponsors:
