All current 40k codexes are legal for this tournament. No ForgeWorld or homebrew rules allowed.

Any rules disputes will be adjudicated by the Tournament Organizer. The utmost effort to determine the correct ruling will be put forth.

Please be a respectful and courteous individual. There is no game benefit for doing so, but as a participant, we ask for sportsman-like behavior. Acting inappropriately may cause disqualification or expulsion from the event. This includes cheating, inappropriate language, or a harmful act or attitude.

Most importantly, Have a good time!


Standard Deployments will be used.

The missions are scored by a Parameter Points system. There are 3 rotating victory conditions based on accruing Parameter Points. These three victory conditions are:

Kill Points: In order to determine how much a kill point is worth, take the number of potential kill points in your army and divide 1500 by this number, rounding up. This will determine the Parameter Point value of your kill points.
Example: Njal has 5 kill points in his army. To determine how much each kill point is worth, he divides 1500 by 5. He calculates each kill point to be worth 300 Parameter Points each. His opponent, Mephiston, destroys 3 of Njal's kill points at the conclusion of the game. Mephiston earns 900 Parameter Points for kill points.

Objectives: On each table, there will be 5 objectives. There will be one placed at each center point of the table quarters and one directly in the center of the board. Each objective is worth 300 Parameter Points. Follow the Warhammer 40k rulebook for the capturing of objectives. (Only troops can capture, any unit can contest. Etc)

Table Quarters: Table quarters will also count for a victory condition. Any unit can score in a table quarter. If there are opposing units in each table quarter, calculate victory points (as shown in the 40k rulebook) to determine which General controls the quarter. If a unit is reduced to half strength, then they are only worth half of the victory points to determine control of the quarter. Troop choices are an exception to this rule. They ALWAYS count for full value, no matter if the unit is reduced to 50%. Controlling a table quarter is worth 375 Parameter Points towards the mission objective.

Victory Points: This will always be the definitive tie-breaker for each mission. If opponents tie on each other mission Parameter Points, determine victory points, as stated in the 40k rulebook, to determine the overall winner.

Mission 1
Deployment: Dawn of War
Parameters: 1- Kill Points, 2- Objectives, 3- Table Quarters

Mission 2
Deployment: Spearhead
Parameters: 1- Table Quarters, 2- Kill Points, 3 Objectives

Mission 3
Deployment: Pitched Battle
Parameters: 1-Objectives, 2- Table Quarters, 3- Kill Points

Keep in mind, that no matter which Parameter achieves victory, all Parameter Points will be recorded to keep track of tournament progress. The overall victory point score (6,000 points possible in each game) will have an effect in the overall seeding and placing in the tournament.

Painting Score:
Up to 500 bonus Parameter Points will be awarded to a participant with a fully painted army. This is a one time bonus. 300 points are awarded for an army that is fully painted, 3 colors and mostly WYSIWYG. NO QUESTIONS ASKED. A higher point value will be given to an army that is of higher quality. Partially painted armies will be given some bonus depending on completeness and quality as it stands. WYSIWYG is also preferred for this tournament for clarity and ease of gaming. This will be considered in your painting score for a higher bonus. Counts as or converted models are allowed, simply be sure to inform your opponent.

Final Placing.
The person that wins all three of his games will place first. Second and Third will be determined by record and overall victory points earned during the tournament.
