Next Jump in the Fantasy League!!

So we Are now on to our next jump in points and will be playing games at 2000pts!!
For all of those that did not get into the league at 1000pts here is your chance to jump right in.
There will be some changes to the way we run the next points jump.

First we will be playing scenarios from the book. If you want to earn points for the games you play you have to also play a scenario game. 
Second we will also be needing more points to buy into the tournament.
This round we will need 30pts to get in. 
Here is how you earn points.

3 points for a win
2 points for a draw
1 point for a loss
2 points for registering for the forums ( you can only get this once. ) 
5 points to finish painting a unit from the start of the league. ( you can only get this once )
3 points for flocking a unit from the start of the league. ( you can get this twice )
5 points for building a display board for your army. ( you can only get this once )
5 points for building and painting terrain for the club. Must be at least 6 inches by 4 inches.
( you can get this 3 times,)

Only 25 points can be earned through battle!
And you can only earn 25 through building and painting!

So those are the rules! Again id like to mention that if you don't already have a hobby town card id get one as soon as you can it will help to save money! There free just ask to get one at the front counter!
Also for those of you with modeling project's in the works don't forget to look through the hole store.
Can find all sorts of stuff in the other models section, train section and the toys section that can be turned into something really cool for terrain or display boards! 
Above all other things Have fun and I look forward to the next 5 weeks!

Movement trays!!!

So I am doing a demo of this on Wednesday as well but I thought I would post it up here so that those that cant make it or those that do and need a refresher can come check it out.

So first are the things you will need.
-Plastruct plastic sheets, get something that is decently think but not so thick you can cut it other wise you will either have a tray too flimsy or way to hard. Or if you are at the Westminster store evergreen plastic sheets are the same thing just a different company.
-Evergreen/ Plastruct strips. I use .008 x .125 ( item code evg166 in case we are out and you need to order some.)strips but anything that is tall enough to prevent your models from falling over is fine.
-Plastic weld- I'm using Tamiya here but because there factory was destroyed recently you will probably want to use the other plastic weld we have at the store. I don't use normal glue here because it tends to be too thick and it globs up the movement tray. Also on flat surfaces plastic weld is a much stronger hold.

Start by placing your 90 degree angle down. I like to use the edge of the plastic sheet because its easy. Try and make the plastic sheet you are going to be using bigger then you will need. It makes everything alot simpler in the long run.

Next line up your models on the angle you just made. I prefer to use empty bases but as most of you already have built and semi or finished models you will be doing this for I know that's not a option. 

 Next add the other 90 degree angle along the back of your unit. Remove the models as fast as you can once this is done so you don't glue them to the tray!

Next score the edge of the tray with a hobby knife and then fold the plastic over. It should be easy to pull off at this point. I like to start with the long edge first then do the short edge but it dose not really matter in the long run.

With your hobby knife trim up the edges so there flush with the plastic strips. Be careful not to cut into the strips or your finger as you do this.

The last step is to go around all the edges of the plastic strips with a little more plastic weld to make sure they all stay in place. And that is all folks you have a perfectly decent movement tray to push some dudes around and win wars for chaos or the empire!

And here is one with the unit inside ready to fight.

By the way as much as I would like to take credit for these I cant. They were shown to me by a good friend who works at the Fort Collins store James Fritz. So if you like these and are ever up there make sure you thank him for the great idea!!
