in the 41st millenium, there is only war and the laughter of the thirsting gods…
Rules Summary – Update 7th Ed.
Painting will be scored and added to your score for purposes of best overall. There will be prizes for painting as part of the Norcon painting awards. Separate prizes for painting will not be awarded by the tournament.
Sportsmanship will be awarded with a simple thumbs up or thumbs down. If you mark thumbs down you will be asked to explain and if validated battle points will be deducted from the player receiving the thumbs down. All sportsmanship scoring is up to the discretion of the judge and the tournament organizer. Votes will be collected and counted for purposes of a best sport award. All sportsmanship points may be modified by the appropriate tournament judge.
Once again we will use the token based tie-breaker rules. Each player will be given 9 tokens that can be used at any time to re-roll a dice. Your opponent can use a token to stop you from re-rolling. This can continue back and forth until both players are out of tokens. At the end of the tournament tokens will be counted. If any awards result in a tie, the player with more tokens will be declared the winner. Players who preregister with a typed list will receive one additional token. You can preregister by sending an email with your list to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Missions: Missions will be determined randomly from the book before each round. No mission will be played twice. Missions will be run as stated in the rule book with the scoring there.
I am changing my earlier format statement. We will only have one tournament for all players. Matchups will be determined by faction and completion of your army’s paint. Basically, we will attempt to match up painted players against painted players.
This year’s tournament will be campaign themed. The theme will have the following effects on the the tournament format. After all participants have been registered, all players will be split into two teams, the forces of order and the forces of disorder. Player’s army race will be used to determine the team that they will join. Players from the forces of order will only play against players from the forces of disorder.
1. There will be two best general awards. One for the forces of order and one for the best general of the forces of disorder.
2. Missions will not be affected. Win conditions will be taken from the Warhammer 40K rulebook.
3. There will be one best overall award, awarded to the best overall player from both teams.
4. Each game table will represent a territory on a campaign map. After three rounds the team that won the most games on that table will gain control of that territory.
Prizes for best general will be in the form of a trophy. The prize for best overall will be announced the day of the tournament. I promise you will not be disappointed. If you have any questions please email me at email@example.com
