PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING We will be using the BAO FAQ's for this Event.

This may look familiar... :D

40K Tournament Format
Exactly as BAO for this tournament. To be modded in the future.
Every scenario has a total of 10 possible points.
Whoever has the most points, wins. Equal points is a tie. There are no degrees of victory, winning by 1 point or 10 is counted the same.
The tournament is W/L/D format, with accumulated points used to determine standings within a given final bracket. For example, if you end the event with a 4-3 record, you will be ranked within that bracket according to how many battle points you accumulated throughout the event. The official scoring is 1,000pts for a win, 500pts for a tie and then accumulated points within the game. So, a player with a 4-3 record who accumulated 7 points in each of his 7 games would end with a final score of (4,049points). We score it this way so that the W/L/D record trumps accumulated points, but points earned throughout the tournament matter in determining your precise ranking in the event.
Pairings are Swiss style, based on strength of schedule.

Scenarios will be the ones used at LVO 2014, with a mix of BRB scenarios and a new Modified Maelstrom mission added in as the secondary mission. Missions 1-3
Book bonus points are added to the total, not to each mission. For example, if you win the Primary mission, lose the Secondary Mission, and get First Blood, Slay the Warlord, but not Linebreaker, you would have scored 6 points total (4 for primary, 0 for secondary and 2 of the 3 book bonus points for 6 total). You will have a score sheet for each scenario that makes tallying the points very straightforward.

chosen from the following list. All of the rules may be found in the Stronghold Assault supplement. No Fortification Formations or upgrades from pg. 18of the Stronghold Assault book will be allowed with the exception of the Battlements & Battlefield section.
Aegis Defense Line

Lords of War
Players are required to have the actual LoW model to use them. Exceptions will only be made for exceptional conversions. What constitutes an exceptional conversion is determined at the sole discretion of the Tournament Organizers. Send pictures of your model in advance if you have any doubts.
Please note, the Impending Doom (+1 to Seize the Initiative for a player facing a LoW who does not have one), and Through Attrition, Victory (+1 Victory Point for every 3 Hull Points or Wounds done to a LoW, counted towards the secondary mission) special rules will be in effect if either player in a given game has a Lord of War.

Allowed Armies

Allies per the Rule Book will be allowed.
Forge World units will be allowed. The most recent version of the rules must be used.
Forge World Army Lists will be allowed.
Each player MUST have his pertinent rulebook with him to show his opponent or a photocopy of the most recent rules for any Forge World units they may be using.

Rules Judgments
Rules issues will be dealt with swiftly by a roaming judge. We use a hierarchy for determining rules issues as follows:
1. Main Rule Book
2. FAQs and Erratas
4. Chris.... he is the final say

Painting is voted on by all participants, with a tie decided by the Head Judge

Comp and Sports
There will be no comp scores at this event. If you are a general bad sportsman, you will be talked to. IF you continue, then you may be asked to leave. We play nice here.

All models are expected to be WYSIWYG as much as is reasonable. Proxies are not permitted. Counts As armies with counts as allies will only be permitted if they represent a clearly concerted effort to build a unique army around an obvious theme. For example, an Adeptus Mechanicus army using extensive kit bashing and conversions will be fine. If you go this route, YOU ARE REQUIRED TO HAVE A HANDOUT TO SHOW YOUR OPPONENT THAT SHOWS WHAT EACH UNIT IN YOUR ARMY IS ALONG WITH ITS STATS AND PERTENANT RULES! You must also present this to them prior to the game so that they have time to understand what they are playing against. There will be no exceptions to this.
If your army uses only a single Codex but if for example you have Crimson Fists models using the Blood Angels Codex, or Chaos models using the Space Wolves Codex, that is acceptable. Allies for this type of army however, MUST be represented by their actual models. This is to avoid confusion. No exceptions.
If you are using converted or scratch built models with Forge World rules, this is acceptable so long as your model is as close to the represented model as possible in terms of equipment, size and shape. We will not be lenient with this.
If you have any questions about your army, ask us prior to the event so that we can let you know if what you have will be acceptable or not.

Modeling for Advantage
There is a fine line between creative freedom and modeling for advantage. We do not wish to stifle anyone’s creativity, but in the end, this is a game that relies heavily upon the physical characteristics of the models being used.
Modeling for advantage will be handled on a case by case basis. To resolve a possible abusive situation, follow these steps:
1. Ask the player to play the model as if it were a GW standard, modern version.
2. Call a judge to ask for a judgement.
3. Possibly substitute the model with an appropriate replacement.
Examples of what we consider modeling for advantage:
1. Using out of date and inappropriately sized models such as the rogue trader era Eldar Avatar (which currently is a large, monstrous creature model but back then, was the size of a Space Marine, which would now grant huge advantages due to being so much smaller) or Gorka Morka Trukks (which are less than half the size of modern versions). If an army is made predominantly of Rogue Trader era minis (or any era) and is clearly going for a theme, then exceptions will be made. If it appears to a judge that the player is in fact modeling for advantage, then action will be taken.
2. Increasing or decreasing the size of models to gain an advantage in gaining or granting cover. Custom Battle Wagons often fall into this category.
3. Altering a model to increase the range of a model or to benefit your LOS.

Terrain will be prearranged and laid out by the TO’s prior to the event. We will not be using terrain placement rules per the book as it is too time restrictive. If you come to a table and feel that it is not sufficiently or fairly arranged, or that it may have been moved by the previous players, alert a TO who will arrange the terrain appropriately.
Hills: All hills are open terrain, granting 4+ cover via LOS blocking/interference as normal.
Barriers: All barriers grant cover per the book and are not considered to be Aegis Defense lines unless they were purchased and placed by a player.
Buildings/ruins: All buildings and ruins are assumed to have a ladder or other means for moving up and down. Rules in the Rule Book will be used for Ruins and Buildings.
Rock Towers, Crates, and Can Towers: Are impassible and block LOS completely (even if there are actual gaps in the terrain pieces).
Hills obstruct views and give the unit obstructed a 4+ cover save, otherwise does not count as difficult terrain.
All other terrain functions as outlined in the BRB pg. 108-113 book.

What to Bring
Your Army
Tape Measure, Dice, Game Aids, etc.
3 Objective Markers on 25mm bases
