That's a bit harsh, isn't it?  ;)

Wut? ;)

Let's not give them ideas. Some of the best things in LPL have been the big crowd scenes some people do. Would be an awful shame to change that. I'd say as long as you have a team of five you're good, everything else is just 'background' and needn't be scrutinized too closely.

I am with you, and I am sorry for even broaching the topic of it not being the case. My favorites have always been the "Where is Waldo?" scenes, like this:

Absolutely.  As long as it includes the minimum 5 new miniatures, preferably prominently, I am all in favour of the crowd scenes.  Although 'The Prof' has sometimes painted everything from new (no pressure!)

Wut? ;)
I think our friend Plynkes was trying to suggest that I was agreeing with your statement on being a "thicko".....  Heaven forbid such a notion.  :)

Do five gladiators count as a team? They're sort of antagonistic...

They would be fine.  They could easily belong to a single ludus and therefore considered "team-mates"

Q: for the british are coming, do the “figures” have to be infantry models? As in would a team of, say, british tanks or other military vehicles be acceptable??

It’s a minimum of 5 figures or models in a team. So five tanks would be fine. Or three figures, a truck and a field gun. Any combination of at least five identifiably separate component ‘team’ members  :)

Besides, there is new evidence that some of them [Picts] drank tea and played cricket.  :)

Questions about backdrop / scene setting:

1. is it acceptable to pose the minis on a board game board if the minis are for said game? (eg, blood bowl team on a blood bowl game board, dreadball team on a dreadball game board, heroquest minis on a heroquest board, space hulk on a space hulk board, zombicide minis on a zombicide board and so on)

2. In a similar vein: would for example a Battlesystems (preprinted cardboard) setup be acceptable as backdrop/scene setting as long as the miniatures fit thematically? (eg sci fi minis on a sci fi terrain setup / fantasy minis on a fantasy terrain setup?)

You can use any scenery or none.  A boardgame is perfectly within the rules and Battlesystems is specifically designed for use as scenery.  There is actually nothing in the rules to say the miniatures have to fit the scenery, but most people would chose to do so.

Question:

Round 6 will determine who are in the top 8, correct? And therefore getting into the knock-out stages from round 7 onwards?

However, if the teams  for Round 7 have to be sent in on Friday 8th and the leaderboard from Round 6 isn't updated until the Sunday (the 10th), how will those who have made it through know they have made it through in time to submit a new team?

Granted those at the top will probably know beforehand by virtue of existing points difference, but it's actually quite close otherwise so those coming in say 7th, 8th may well not know until the results are in. In which case does anyone with a slight chance of getting through need to submit a team on the off chance?!

It looks like new rules were not integrated into schedule.

It should probably be a two week window here

That gets my vote! It's about the only way you'll see a round 7 entry from me!  lol

Something always told me they were reading Tommy wrong...
