Kings of War - regional represenatation

Postby Doc Rot » Wed Jul 05, 2017 10:54 am

Hey up,

So I've been thinking, especially after seeing the ICON participation numbers, what sort of active Kings of War populations do we have kicking around. I'll start;

Down here in PE we have 7 active players. I don't think it's really gotten anywhere in East London, maybe 2 (maybe none).
JHB
Pretoria
Durban
Cape Town
Other population centres/regions

Be interesting to know whether there is a big enough base to run some sort of national tournament like in the olden days with Warhammer Fantasy.

Cheers,
Dave

The Cabal in Pretoria has a few KoW players; the Warbanner guys seem to prefer AOS for fantasy gaming.

We have 2 or 3 players who seem keen on tournaments (not sure if Louis "counts as" a Jo'burg or Pretoria player).
3 more guys who play fairly often and 3 or 4 players I don't see playing that often.
So a ~10 person group.
Our campaign had 8 players, but 2 of them are from Jo'burg.

It would be great to play some new players so I'm game. Whenever or wherever it is we will just need advance warning.

Yeah, I think it would be good to have a national tournament at some point. There definitely seems to be a big enough base. We'll just need plenty of advance warning and time. From down here, I reckon 4 of us would probably come.

Joburg or Pretoria would make sense to get the best turnout.

Well it make sense. Could probably fit 6 in easy. Pretoria would be easier for us travellers, as then we could stay with Steristumpie

Well the campaign at 3+ had 8 players with a few unable to join due to it being limited to 8 max.

3 of those players took part at ICON so I think you can add another 5 players at least to the KoW players in Gauteng
