ETL VIII POSTPONED!

DUE TO NURGLE ASSAULT

 

Well, we are all aware of the Covid-19 situation and its deadly consequences. Apart from the terrible toll on human life, there is also another, less macabre, yet highly disrupting side-effect: the lockdown! Now the lockdown affects business', livelihoods and our everyday social life.

 

The ensuing social distancing might be interpreted by many as an ideal time to sit down and paint their stash, with all the free time that all of a sudden is generated. But there is a catch.

 

As regards our hobby, the lockdown resulted in the disruption of GW sales chain, its shops closed down as did its e-shop. That means no new minis, no paints, no new brushes, in short: no fresh hobby supplies unless they come in digital form.

 

Add to that that the lockdown extends to the local hobby shops as well, it appears that people can indeed paint their stash but they cannot buy new minis and if they run out of paints, glue or brushes, they just cannot replace them - at least not as easily.

 

Now it is possible, indeed probable, that the measures will be relaxed going forward but it is unclear as to when, and in which geographies. In fact it is quite possible that some governments will be relaxing their social-distancing measures before others, depending on the progress of the pandemic in their countries. And even when GW is allowed to return to business as usual, it will take some time before the backlog is taken care of and the entire process normalises. 

 

The ETL is based very much on people having as level a playing field as possible. This extra complication will have an uneven impact on the B&C community thus taking away one of the major characteristics of the event that make it so popular. As such, I'm postponing the event and it will NOT run in its usual time-slot May-Aug. One option is to run the event in Sep-Dec slot if normality has returned or skip 2020 altogether and go for 2021. 

 

I will re-evaluate the situation by the end of August and keep everyone informed. 

 

In the mean time, I'm sure that the Inner Circle will provide something to keep the insatiable thirst for the hobby of the B&C Community busy! The Master  of the Arsenal seems quite busy as of late...

And I hoped to redeem myself during ETL for my failiure during Titans of Heresy and Loyalty & Treachery. 
But thanks for the heads up.

Semper, perhaps instead of completely postponing it, it starts to coincide with when Games Workshop re-opens? They're tentatively opening some shops now, but nothing fully opened again as of yet. Just a suggestion is all

Ah, when I saw the thread, I thought it was the greatest time of the year again - I had been looking forward to it. Still, I completely understand your reasoning. Thanks for the update, Cap, and being an ever mindful event organiser!

Good call.

Too bad even the event had to be postponed, but it works out well for me. Being one of the 'essential workers', I've never worked more hours in my life. I wouldn't have been able to participate. Looking forward to when it's finally all over and we can all start painting.

I won’t lie. I was looking forward to it. I was quietly building a small force of tyranids 😁.
But although the warp might’ve distorted the ETL for now. The great devourer will come.

Thanks for the update !

Not because I have got through my pile of shame, had to sell some stuff off a while ago... I have noticed though I only have one troop choice for my Slaanesh army, gonna need some more Marine squads, Cultists (joy) and fancy a few more Spawn as well, at least I can build and convert them now so I dont eat into painting time with sculpting and bits hunting. 

Ngl I can feel the pre ETL buzz building... Time to dig out all my bits boxes

Excellent decision, Cap'n. I'm sure that one guy who has everything he needs for ETL wouldn't have much fun "competing" alone. I'm out of Averland Sunset and that's a crisis for an Imperial Fists aficionado.

I look forward to seeing the machinations of the Master of the Arsenal, but I do hope we can manage the Oct-Dec slot for ETL. I'd hate to miss it altogether this year.

And on a semi-related topic, my sympathies to my Dark Angel brothers who have been waiting so many years for HH book 9. It seems a gross injustice that Nurgle has further delayed it.
