Re: Warhammer 40K Tabletop XIII: "Ironclads, Furiosos and Defilers, oh my!"
Wow. Not a fan of either reaction, TBH. I've had games where before deployment you know that you can't possibly win (3rd ed, Assassins mission vs IG Tank Company - 9 pie plates a turn to take out a chaplain), but don't agree with a straight forfeit. IMO, forfeit is there because you have some unforseen circumstance come up (eg illness, family stuff), not "I can't win". Some of my better tournament memories have involved receiving an absolute thrashing - you learn more from them than yet another close loss that you blame on poor dice rolls.

And seriously, who doesn't plan for mech-based when going to a tournament?
