1850pts per player Standard Force Organization.
The rules for allies are in effect, INAT, and GW FAQ’s will be used as well.

WYSIWYG: Units must be WYSIWYG. Any model that fails to meet this requirement will be instantly removed from play (at your opponent’s discretion). Conversions and ‘counts as’ are allowed within reason (judges’ discretion). Painted: Armies do not need to be painted.

6. Bracketing
Opponents will be randomly determined for the first round. Swiss pairing (using just the gaming score) will occur in the second and final round.

7. Prizes
All entrance fee money will be “the pot”, even from those that drop out. This money will be divided among the top winners as follows:


Overall Champion: 40%. This is the player with the most overall points, includes the battle points for all three rounds, painting score, and the players choice score.

Best Painted: 30%. During the lunch break, judges will inspect and score the painting on all the armies. To keep things objectively based, a checklist will be used to evaluate each army.

Best General: 20% This is for the player with the most battle points.

Player’s Choice Award: 10%  Each player will have the opportunity to rank each of the armies they have fought against using a simple checklist.

If a player wins multiple awards they will only receive the award with the highest prize and the award for any other category they have won will go to the runner up in that category.

Feel free to ask any questions
