Thanks to both parties for clearing this issue up.
In my opinion the matter is closed and we'd like to offer both DJClark and his friend a 100% invitation to this event.

Man, this is one tourney I would love to attend! Benny Hill games are great!

I think I'll have to pass, tho, cos it's my daughter's 1st birthday on the 15th.

If I can make it over, I'd love to spectate though - it would be a fantastic day! :D

I'll do Shadows, though they'll have to be baby ones (ie FA scale).

Since you don't confirm you'll be attending I'll not book you in for now... or are you someone who is already booked in but whose forum handle I don't know, such as Mike Locke?

As for your fleet it looks quite good, but since it is a tournament you might find people are a little reluctant to offer too much advice ;) All I'll say is, you know which races you'll be up against, so tailoring your fleet for them would be advisable. Also remember Gaim will use stats from S&P 56, not the published fleet book.

After I get all the places filled I'll see if anyone needs to be switched. I'll try to give everyone their first choice, starting with those first to sign up :)

Nope I never said that... generally I prefer only official rules at tourneys.

I didn't even invent them, just suggested a minor modification of Locutus' idea to implement Full Thrust rules... they're really BINO... Burger In Name Only!

Seeing how they flowed with a game Greg vs Da Boss on Wednesday BBR do seem to speed up play a lot.

I would say we use them as a matter of course in local tourneys (Greg's Crew, Warlords of Walsall and the Sentient Rabbits).
In shock of coming 2nd in a tourney :D I WAS ROBBED!!! of 1st place :D

Is there any viable 5-point raid Shadow fleet except 5 scouts?

Have to admit, I'm not personally a fan, but I'll go with whatever's agreed.

1 Young shadow ship and 1 scout, or some variation involving their fighters I think.

As to whether or not that actually works is a very different matter...

As Ben says; young ship and a scout, or stalker and 3 scouts... unless fighters are thrown into the mix (and lets be honest, why would they be, eh Charles? :wink: ) then that's about the only three options.
I myself will be opting for the 5 scouts, young ship is not good enough to justify taking, and the less said about the Stalker the better!
(hell, there's even a poll as to how to make it any thing like a decent ship)
