I'm not 100% happy with the cover picture... I kinda wanted to save that for Piggin Mayhem?

It feels odd having a bloodthirster for a 750 point tournament... If I get time tonight, I may put together another picture of a more realistic clash for the points values, maybe ghouls and empire or something?

Hey,

I've updated the Finding Pigmar page

I didn't manage to take a new cover photo, my Dad's appendix burst so I made a quick trip back to Southampton...

Maybe could do with the club contact details on the "Finding Pigmar page".
Otherwise it looks very slick, almost professional!

Okay, with contact details added to the last page

I will publish it to pdf soon so we can spread it to the world, if there is nothing else to add / change?

I am having trouble getting it to publish to pdf properly, the faded areas just come out as big white boxes...

any ideas anyone?

Have a look at compression levels in the pdf printing options. might be due to that.

I'll be bringing my netbook for this event so we can use it to keep track of what's going on.

I also have a spreadsheet that works for the Swiss System. A copy is attached, it's quite slow if I remember correctly so might be worth seeing if we can find another one.

I was going to suggest using yours to do a picture capture thing of the event, like we did for the storm of magic event?

I can bring my laptop down for ELO / swiss systeming...

I've still got table numbers, result slips and best army voting slips from previous events that I can bring along.
I assume we want certificates for winner, 2nd place and best army?

Also are we going to get some small prizes, or just use some dice?

We did talk about a stein for first place but I'm guessing its a little late now...

Also at £15 quid a pop they are pretty pricey for the smaller tournaments?

Could probably get a mug delivered in time, if I ordered one this evening. I think they're about £8.

That sounds more like it... I was going to but together a border war logo thingy this evening anyway, basically the normal pig, coming out of a ring thing with the name of the tournament in
