Army restrictions & rules
  • The 8th edition set of rules must be used.
  • Players must understand that this tournament is for fun. Poor sportsmanship will not be tolerated.
  • You must create your army using the most recent edition of the appropriate Warhammer Armies book or the Chaos Dwarf list located in the Forge World Tamurkhan book. Trial Rules and Appendix armies are NOT permitted.
  • Your army does NOT have to be painted but must be fully assembled.  Paint IS 20% of your score
  • Hills block LOS for non-Large models and are not difficult ground.
  • Forests follow standard BRB LoS rules.
  • Unit cap of 30 Infantry / 15 Monstrous Infantry models for entering a building (any unit can still assault one though)
  • No fixed terrain.  Instead, players take turns placing terrain (and must use all pieces on the table) each game.
  • No mysterious terrain
What You See Is What You Get (WYSIWYG). If a model is armed with an item, it must be shown on the figure. Models for army list choices that are not available must be converted. If you are in any way in doubt about whether your conversion or scratch built piece might not be acceptable please call us before the tournament. We don’t want someone to show up with something they can’t use!
  • You may use non-Games Workshop models in this tournament.
  • You may NOT use Special Characters. But no Proxies! Counters, tokens, gum balls, painted rocks, ect
  • The most current rules clarifications from the official GW Warhammer FAQ will be in use.
  • If your army contains Wizards, the Lore that each Wizard uses MUST be declared in their entry on the army list. If an item grants you knowledge of a spell from a Lore that you may pick, you must declare that on your army list as well. In the case of Grey Seers, you must declare how many spells that they will use from either of the Skaven Lores. For example, “Grey Seer – 2 Spells from Lore of Ruin & 2 Spells from Lore of Plague.”.
  • Storm of Chaos, Dogs of War and Lustria lists are NOT allowed.

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
  3. Consensus of judges present at the time. Please note, that these judgments are final.
