Redneck Rumble 2013 Round Up

Well the day has come and gone and once again great fun was had by all.

Although this write up will go through some of the results if you want to see the full results check this post here.

The weekend begun Friday afternoon as the tournament organisers (God and Demi gods) arrived at the venue and began to setup. Here became the first morale decision of the weekend. Do the organisers continue setting up or show the southern hospitality and stop for a drink and a chat.

And that decision out lined the rest of the weekend, great times, great games and great company. Oh yeh, drinking. A fair bit of drinking.

The Perth players arrived through the evening and the drinks began to flow. Laughter was had and lies where told. Some Albany guys arrived and joined in making for a great friendly opening night.

The morning of the tournament met with a few sore heads and bleary eyes. Breakfast was had, tables set up, new players welcomed and than the events began.

3 games where held on day one with some laughter, a few tears and the occasional near table throw. It was a very casual laid back day where everyone played their games with plenty of time and new comers had a chance to find their feet in an environment involving plenty of trash talking and the more than occasional joke.

Saturday night saw the first Southern Flesh and Steel painting competition entries setup with voting to be held in the morning. Although I forgot to take any pictures (HEY there was drinking to be done) I can testify there was some great displays on show. There was some dioramas and display boards of varying quality but I was impressed with everyone who made an effort to display something. Great stuff to all and congrats to Drew Lovell with his brilliant Bushido War party on display that garnered a VAST proportion of votes.

Some local guys arrived to play some games and both rooms rung with laughter and cheer. One room rang with the clatter of dice, the other with the clatter of bottles. The Fortified Wine night was filled with laughter, and some tears as some god awful beverages where introduced. High on the list of successes where the Seppetsfield Grand Musket and an interesting Topaque. I do believe the worst produced met with much more interest. I can vouch that Duro made an interesting couple of additions to the table. One Spain Cherry was described as “Rotten sardines marinated in Soy Sauce”. It is safe to say, this event will continue as a tradition because it proved to be bloody good fun.

The night went on to the wee hours of the morning and some local lads kicked on with a game of “Drunk Quest” which can only be described as Munchkin where alcohol is used to kill monsters. A messy messy affair. We knew the night was eventful when the Assistant Tournament Organiser wandered into the dorms rooms where the words “I can’t tell which way is up” where uttered.

Sunday morning had the final 2 rounds played and all results came down to the final round.

3 players had a mathematical chance of winning and with the results in the final round, it became very tight in the final rankings. The only category that was well and truly decided by round 5 was the most Touchdowns. Even the Civil War trophy was up for grabs with the North holding a very slim lead heading into the final round.

In the end Robert Langford managed to score enough bonus points to finish ahead of Joshua Davies in the final standings. A fantastic effort.

Nathan Gall won the Happy Drunk award for the best Sportsman. Both Nathan Gall and Richard James went the full 9 yards and came in theme. Nathan with his Mullet, Sleeveless flannel and general “Bogan Pride” attire as well as a brilliant Chaos Team with relevant bogan symbols painted on shoulder pads. Richard came as what can only be described as a Gay Scottish Pirate (Ok, maybe I added the Gay part) in full kilt. Not to mention a naked miniature that was truly horrifying. Both gentlemen deserve recognition as their efforts where greatly appreciated.

In the end it was a justifying result to see Richard James walk away with the brilliantly painted Chaos Team from Willy Miniatures as the winner of the raffle.

And then it was over. Another brilliant year gentlemen and a great time was held by all.

A special personal thank you to Jake Hacker for helping run the event, Jack Taylor for helping in the background with ideas and research, Jason Dawson for obtaining some items that where not used in the end this year, Drew Lovell who without him we would never have gotten the Raffle ready and other background things for me. Without these guys, the event would not have happened.

Next year this event will be a qualifier for the Western Australian State of Origin Team so we should expect a good roll out of some talented players.

So we look towards the coming year and start looking for Fortified Wines without the name “Wild Boar” on them (Thanks David) and ready yourselves for the Redneck Rumble 2014.

The Raffle has been delivered into my hot little hands and it is AWESOME. A big thanks to all involved. Brendan Schuts has officially bought some tickets, so everyone else needs to go nuts to make sure he DOESN’T win another Blood Bowl Raffle.

Speaking of the raffle. Some attendees had been purchasing over Paypal. There will be better value tickets at the event, so those that have purchased so far, have been assigned extra tickets to say thanks.

Raffle Pics – BRING THE STINK!!!!

The Chaos team has been painted, and I must say I am VERY pleased with the results.

Before I post the pics and the raffle details some BIG thank you’s.

– JAKE “Sir Apple” HACKER. Jake helped last year with running the event and will be there again this year. He helped with the raffle by assembling all the figures for me. A big thanks Jake.

– NIC “that Nic Guy” CHAPMAN. Nic ended up taking on the job of painting for commission after the original painter had to pull out for personal reasons. Thank you Nic, thank you.

– DREW “Reaper” LOVELL. Drew ended up finding me a replacement painter and added the finishing touches. This guy, as we all know, is the driving force of Blood Bowl in WA. Huge thanks Drew.

So now we have them out of the way, what do get for the raffle.

Raffle Team has arrived!!

The Chaos Team from Willie Miniatures arrived today, and so I open them up to get my greedy little hands on them.

They are a FANTASTIC looking team. The 3D renders at the Willie Miniatures website does NOT do them justice. The Beastmen are a brilliants size and increase for the STR4 Chaos Warriors and STR5 Minotaur are Divine.

The only critisism I have is that some of the Beastmen’s arms and heads needs assembling. This could prove to be fiddly as well for the Chaos Warriors but the quality of the models is mesmerising. Very little to clean up on them. Great job and I cannot wait to get these to the painter.

Unfortunately only recieved 8 Beastmen and not the expected 11 so will sort that out but I don’t see it being a problem.

Players Pack and Painting Comp Announcement Coming Soon

Well the Players Pack for 2013 is going through final proof reading and general changes.

Prices have been decided, dates have been confirmed, invoice has been recieved for prepayment of the venue.

The artist responsible for our fantastic logo has been in contact to provide me with some more flexibility and to bring the creation into colour so changes hopefully happening there soon.

I have also been working on plans for the Saturday night to encourage some gaming between Perth and Albany in other wargames. One of the ways is to hold a painting competition with judging being conducted on a peer based level. That is going through final stages to be announced with the release of the players pack. Exciting times.

Redneck Raffle being finalised

A raffle to fund raise for prizes (be they this year or next years event) has recieved some great news today.

We have secured a FULL team of Willie Miniatures awesome Chaos Team.

This means

  • 11 Beastmen
  • 4 Chaos Warriors
  • 1 Minotaur

Adding to that we have also managed to convince a painter in Perth to do an amazing paint job for us.

If that wasnt enough we are also throwing in a KR Multicase to carry them all around in.

More details as they happen, for now, save those little gold coins up as the sale of raffle tickets will start around June and be drawn at the Redneck Rumble.
