Army Composition & Allowed Rules

The tournament will use the latest edition of the Warhammer 40,000 rules published May 2014. Participants will construct armies using the rules outlined in the Warhammer 40,000 rulebook. An army must be no greater than 1500 points in size. Players may construct either unbound or battleforged armies. The player must play the same army in each round of the event.

Players should have a printed, legible copy of their army list available for every opponent. Preferably, you should bring five copies to every tournament you attend (as is tradition,) one for the T.O., one for yourself, and one for each opponent to analyze after their games for future reference. Making five copies of your list is up to you, but you will need at least one available.

For this event, the Stronghold Assault and Escalation books will not be allowed.

All printed codexes currently available for purchase through Games Workshop are considered 'legal' for this event. Dataslates, Digital Editions, and Formations are allowed. If it is found that any digital rules are in any way faulty, forged, or incorrect by the player's knowledge or not, the player will be disqualified -- so be very careful to make sure you have the REAL rules!

Painting/Modelling Requirements & Painting Competition

There is no painting requirement for this event. All models must be fully assembled and on appropriate sized bases. Exceptions will be made on a case-by-case basis, usually for older models that did not come with current bases (such as 2nd edition items with square bases.)

After the 2nd round all participants are free to place one unit from their army to be judged by all in a painting competition. The winner, voted by participants, will receive a prize in store credit.

Proxy/Counts-as Models

Using models on a counts-as basis is OK as long as the opponent can clearly identify and accept what is being represented. If you are in doubt, contact the T.O. ahead of time (through facebook or here) to verify if your models will be OK with participants.


Rounds 1 and 2 will be Eternal War missions revealed at the start of each round. Round 3 will be a Maelstrom of War mission revealed at the start of the round. Players can find these missions in the Warhammer 40,000 rulebook.
