1.Missions and Scoring
Missions and deployment:
Round 1: Cleanse and Capture - Dawn of War
Round 2: Contact lost - Spearhead assault
Round 3: Kill Confirmed - Search and Destroy
Round 4: Spoils of War - Frontline Assault
Round 5: Tactical Escalation - Hammer and Anvil
If a player generates a Maelstrom-Objective that he is not able to score (for example if you draw witch hunter and your opponent doesn't have any psykers), he is allowed to put it aside and draw a new objective.
The pairing of players in the first round is random (but we will make sure that players from the same teams do not meet in the first round), from the second round forward the pairing of the players will be determined by the Swiss System.
All gathered victory points are added up at the end of the match and compared against each other. The points difference determines the result of the game.
Difference in victory points
Victory points will be used as a tiebreaker. You can note victory points on your result slip.
The total annihilation will result in a 20-0 victory and the total difference in victory points will be 12-0, if you had a bigger lead in the objectives than that you will add 2 VP to that difference.
2.Constructing your Army:
Your army may not include more than 2000 points. Your army has to be battle-forged.
Your Army may not be built out of more than three detachments and you cannot duplicate any detachments.
Forgeworld models and rules are not allowed.
Your warlord has to be marked on your army list.
Warlord Traits, Psychic Powers, Relics and all other options that have to be decided “before the game begins” (e.g. The Chapter Master Stratagem) have to be noted down on your army list and can not be changed throughout the tournament.
English publications and rules texts always have priority compared to texts and publications in other languages.
The rule ‚Understrength Units‘ does not apply.
Games Workshop Beta Rules:
We are using the Beta Rules provided by Games Workshop. Please note that we still may exclude specific rulings and changes made by Games Workshop.
The First set of Beta Rules can be found here:https://www.warhammer-community.com/
PLACING OBJECTIVES AND CHOOSING SIDES: After all objectives have been placed, players roll off and the winner chooses his side. The other player then starts to set up his first unit.
RANDOMLY GENERATED VICTORY POINTS (MAELSTROM): If a tactical objective asks you to generate the amount of victory points randomly (roll a D3) , you always get 2 victory points instead.
FIRST TURN: The player who deployed all his/her units first, gets a +1 modifier on the roll off to determine who goes first.
TACTICAL OBJECTIVES: Each player must use tactical objectives 11-16 that are faction specific if the faction has a codex by the time of the tournament. Factions that do not have a codex by the time of the tournament use the generic ones. Every player must bring his own set of tactical objective cards to the tournament.
All armies need to be painted in at least 3 colors. The main army colour is a must (we will not accept black/white undercoat, with three items painted in random colors). You can use models that are painted as a different chapter/craftworld/hive fleet as any other of those regardless of paintjob.
All models must be WYSIWYG.
5. Best painted army and best sportsmanship
There will be no points given for painting or sportsmanship.
Anyone who wishes to compete for the best painted army will be able to display his army during the lunch break on the second day. The players and the tournament staff will then cast their votes for the best painted army.
Sportsmanship - you will simply vote for your best opponent at the end of the tournament. The person with the most votes will get Best sportsmanship award.
Please send your rosters in ETC format for easier inspection and publishing, if you are not familiar with it, contact us and we will send you an example.
