More will get added, we are all busy busy bees
We'll try answer any questions in the original post too.
So, onto the rules...RulesEverything must be WYSIWYG
Any kit bought beyond the regular profile equipment must be modeled. No Forgeworld/Apocalypse rules or units
Counts as is fine, if you have any questions on this then post 'em.Things to bring
Bring the following:
1. Your models
2. 5 copies of your army list (printed or VERY clearly written) 1 for you and 1 for each opponent. The last one is for submitting to the judges (so that all you cheaters can be exposed!) Make sure to include your name on the list. Army builder lists are fine (in fact desired).
3. Rulebooks and codex books you need. Also any official FAQ's from GW.
4. Pen and something to jot points onto (the back of the score ticket is ok I suppose
5. Dice and templates
6. Tape measure
7. Perhaps some super glue for breakages!
8. This Puppy
There will be copies at the event too.I hear you ask "will i die from starvation?"
The answer is no, food will be supplied by our friends "MARKARI FILL THIS IN!"Ok, on the more nitty gritty
Armies have to be less than or equal to 1750 points (man I miss 1850).
If you have an error, then you can't win any composition prizes! If the error is too severe (or if there are too many), disqualification may be a result!
Your army must use the most recent codex available to it. No 3.5 Ed of Codex Chaos Armies Allowed
Allowed Army Lists

Sportsmanship (30 possible)
each game you will rate your opponent between 0 and 10

5 an average game.
0 meaning it was the worst, you would not play this player again.
Painting + Modeling (30 possible)
each game you will rate your opponents army based upon the painting/modeling quality.

10 the paint job is one of the best you have ever seen, the modeling is the equally amazing.
5 the modeling and painting is average
0 the player did not paint or model much, or has done a poor job.FAQ
- Quote :
- Do I have to play you first round, Marc, the second, and Makari the third??
Although CJ undoubtedly meant this to be disruptive (thx CJ ). I will answer it.
No you will not (most likely). The first game will involve randomized opponents, the 2nd and 3rd will be based on rank. So in round 2, 1st and 2nd place will face one another, 3rd and 4th and so on. Then this will be re-evaluated for round 3.
- Quote :
- If a model has a pistol holster, and instead of a laspistol, you want him to have a bolt pistol, that's acceptable, right?
Yup that is perfectly fine. It couldn't be a lasgun or a anything unreasonable obviously.
- Quote :
- we are new, and still don't have templates, do we need them to use the weapons?
It will probably be ok to borrow templates, but I would suggest that you get some... you'll need to at some point anyway. If you do borrow, be quick to return them (if they are from another table).
- Quote :
- My son would like to come (but not play), are spectators allowed?
Sure can, as long as they know not to touch or bother players (in the case of children and adults like CJ )
- Quote :
- do all jetbikes and skimmers need to use their plastic floaty base?
Preferably, but as it isn't needed 'rules wise' then no they are not required.
- Quote :
- Should I bother to finish painting my army?
Yes there will be soft prizes for things like painting, composition and sportsmanship. You already won a prize though, not sure if we are going to double up (others need love too). We'll make a post on prizes.
Post any questions you have and I will update the FAQ
