Calling all 9th Age generals! Army Lab is an environment to experiment with your lists as you prepare for upcoming competitive tournaments.
It will take the form of an informal 3-round tournament of 4500pts, but since the goal is to test out ideas, you don't need to paint, you can use proxies, and we have awards for innovative ideas.
-No points awarded or deducted for painting
-Proxies are allowed, as long as they have the right base size and are CLEARLY labeled (e.g. use your Orcs as Chaos Warriors and just write "Warriors" on a post-it and stick it to the movement tray)
-10 Points for most innovative / unconventional idea that works (participants' vote, to qualify for award you must have won the majority of your games).
-10 Points for giving your opponent good feedback on their list idea. 30 min breaks between rounds include time to give your opponent feedback on their list. You will be asked to rate the quality of feedback you received (None/Not helpful, Good, Really insightful)
-You must SUBMIT YOUR ARMY LIST before 12pm EST on Sunday, Jan 6, 2019 to qualify for the most innovative points & award. Your submission should indicate totals for % of total points of each category, e.g. Core 26%.
