Brohammer ep005 "Prison Tatoos" is out!

ep005 goes GOLD!

Brohammer ep005 "Prison Tatoos" is here!
Kevin, Tom and I are again joined by Canadian phenom Andrew Weber.
We start the show off in our usual fashion by describing what we have brought to the table to slake our thirsts.  After that is a Warhammer's Real Men of Genius short (repeat in case you have missed them so far AND to hype our newest contest!)
We talk about what we have been doing recently hobby related...naturally this leads to the term "prison tats" being bandied about like its awesomesauce.  Another Warhammer's Real Men of Genius short (repeat in case you have missed them so far AND to hype our newest contest!)
Then the meat:  Joe and Chuck from the WAAAGHCAST podcast interview me on my thoughts about 8th and life in general, well they didn't really ask me about life in general, but I let them know my thoughts on it anyways!  (this was taped in Dec and aired on episode 50 of WAAAGHCAST)
**New Contest**  Go to the forums and sign up!
Thanks for listening!

and on itunes (when it updates) :)

Brawler Bash IV!!!

The Oak City Brawlers are excited to bring you the Brawler Bash, a Warhammer Fantasy Battle Indy Grand Tournament.  Now in its fourth year!
Five games over two days with 2,500 point armies.
This event will be held in Raleigh, NC on Saturday April 9th and Sunday April 10th 2011 in conjunction with the Triangle Simulation Society's Spring Fever miniatures convention. 

Here is the link to the convention- You can also pre-pay (and save $5!) for the event using Paypal on this page [Spring Fever drop down tab at top, select “Spring Fever pre-registration”].  Spring Fever link:

Use this link to register (or use the Spring Fever drop down tab at top, select “Brawler bash Registration”) and upload your army list.
**At the time of writing this, some information (like dates) on the website is in the process of being updated.

We also have a Brawler Bash Forum:
Sign up today for all of the latest information and discussion! The most up to date rules pack is also available on the forums.

Brohammer Podcast is the official WFB podcast of the Brawler Bash!
Listen in to get the latest scoop on the competition and how the tournament field is shaping up.  Your fast lane to the inside track on everything from prize support to comp discussions.  Get to know the T.O (me)before you attend the tournament :>  Also, tune in for in-depth coverage of the event featuring player interviews before, during and after!

Number of Players: There will be a maximum of 50 players in this tournament so register early!  Only a paid registration will hold your spot.

Cost: Price has come DOWN this year! $20 + cost of entry to Spring Fever ($20). $40 Total.  To get this price you must pay by March 26th 2011.   You can pay by Paypal on the website or by check.  Checks should be made out to: Ron Oldham (Send via snail mail: Ron Oldham 1017 Wetterhorn Way Wendell, NC 27591)  Paying at the door will be possible, but it will be $45 and your spot will not be reserved so it is first come first served.

Age Requirements: You must be at least 16 years old to participate.  Younger than that will be decided on a case by case basis.

Prizes: There are four main prize categories: Bash Grandmaster (Overall), Bash Crasher (Best Sports), Bash Brush (Appearance), and Bash Battlemaster.  All of these will get to take home the coveted Brawler Bash trophy swords, each engraved with the appropriate category!  We are going to a different format for main "swag" give away this year.  In the past we have had a large random raffle at the end of the Bash.  This usually meant that almost every player took something home.  We are continuing that tradition but giving away ALL (other than a few choice items for the Bash Master :P) of the juicy prizes like this.  That means that even the last place player has a chance to win big!  The top players will be playing for the awesome swords and bragging rights, everyone will have a chance to snag some loot!

*NEW* for 2011- Terrain Table Contest: This year the Brawler Bash is hosting a Terrain Table Contest.  Entries can be individual or clubs/groups.  Bring your best terrain and make a table!  The table will be used for the tournament.  The staff will pick one entry to be the winner on Saturday night.  In addition to a prize, the winner will have his/her choice of playing on that table once on Sunday(If a group wins, then they get to choose which player will get the honor).  EVERY participant that enters will get full points on the "Army Theme and Cohesiveness" category of the paint scoring checklist.**Groups/clubs will have to choose up to 2 persons to gets this bonus ( in other words, everyone in a 10 man club doesn't get the bonus because of one table)
Rules: You may have multiple entries if you wish(we reserve the right to cap that number in order to let everyone who wants to enter participate).  The deadline for letting the TO know that you plan on participating (and how many entries you plan to bring) is March 26th 2011.  If you are entering a table/tables PLEASE be courteous and arrive on Friday evening or early enough on Saturday to set it up.  You should bring a drop cloth or game mat/board if that goes with your entry(We will have extras if needed, but ask ahead of time).  No more than 2 pieces with special terrain rules. Tables should be the standard 6x4.  There should be 5-10 pieces of terrain as per the rule book.  Contact the TO ahead of time to schedule your entry.  We need to know how many are going to participate before Saturday, April 2nd 2011 so we can set up the hall accordingly.  You will get to take your stuff home at the end of the BB of course! :)
**NOTE** These tables will be played on and accidents do happen despite all of our best efforts.  If you have irreplaceable items or items of great value please consider this before you enter them into the contest.  We will take every care with your terrain, but Brawler Bash will not be held responsible for any damage that occurs to terrain through normal game playing. 
This is supposed to be a fun side event and is helpful to us staffers since 8th edition has ramped up the terrain requirements.  We are flexible.  If you have any questions do not hesitate to ask!

Army List Due Date: March 26th, 2011 (Please see the rules packet for allowable armies and email them in either Text, Word, or Excel format to the Tournament Coordinator)
** +2 bonus points added to your sports score by meeting the army list deadline!

I look forward to seeing you there!
