Alcohol Policy

We will have a private bar for attendees open in the afternoon on Friday, and Saturday. Outside alcohol is not allowed in public areas of the hotel including the gaming hall.    We expect participants to drink responsibly.    We reserve the right to ask participants to leave if our alcohol policy is broken.

House Rules

Measure from base to base or the highest point on the model.

Overlapping of bases is not allowed.

Terrain will either have predefined rules or will be specifically indicated to as Mysterious Terrain be rolled for by players.   

Terrain will be placed prior to the start of games you may reset in a mutually acceptable manner it if you think it was accidentally moved prior to your game. 

Terrain CANNOT be placed on top of or within 3 inches of an objective marker.  Players may not summon a Balewind Vortex within 9” of any objective.   Please also see notes in Modeling and Painting Standards on bought terrain rules.  

If include a Sylvaneth Wyldwood in your army, it can be homemade. However:

·         It must possess a nearly identical footprint to that of a Citadel Wood.

·         There should be a minimum of three trees on the base.

·         These trees are considered part of the terrain feature and may not be moved to allow units or characters through.

“Named” Characters such as Durthu, Archaon etc. are unique and are limited to one per army.

If the Scorched Earth Scenario from GHB 2017 is used   deploy the objective markers 9" away from the long board edges instead of 12"

Games will last  5 turns  or until time runs out.  When the timer goes off means dice down and determine the winner of the game. You can stop early but you can not finish late.    

Sudden Death victory conditions will not be used.  Some scenarios will continue until time is called even if a winner is determined earlier.  This allows players to obtain bonus points they might not otherwise achieve.   

Models that can not be attacked can not score objectives (i.e. the Changeling.)    Carrion models are unable to hold objectives unless they have been on the ground since the end of the previous battle turn (the bottom of the most recent turn). This allows you to be on the ground at the end of the turn, and then if you win the Priority Roll you are able to score.

Modeling and Painting Standards

We will allow unpainted models but we strongly encourage painted and flocked armies.  

Player brought terrain must be fully painted to be fielded.  Any terrain other then a Sylvaneth Wyldwood must be the actual GW model no proxies allowed. 
Bases can either be round or square.

Bases should easily fit the model without a lot of the model hanging off. If a model is on what the TO’s deem too small of a base then you may be required to measure from the model instead of a base.

While we will allow square based models you should use the current 'official' base size in terms of determining supporting attacks.   For example if a model is currently sold by GW with a round/oval base that is the size to use.  If it is currently not sold with a round/square base you may want to review the following resources to determine approximate sizes:

Conversions are encouraged but should be clear for your opponent. There should be no “modelling for advantage” If there is some question please email us (with a picture) and we’ll take a look.

Proxies are allowed but should not be minimally converted models from GW ranges that might cause confusion.   High Elf archers represent High Elf archers not proxy Glade Guard or Waywatchers  (especially because Order armies could have all three!)  When in doubt don't field it.  

Forgeworld models must the actual GW model to be fielded. 

SCORING

There will be multiple award categories:

Best General: Highest total battle points

Best Army: Highest combination of judge and player graded scores for presentation

Best Sports:  Highest sportsmanship score

Overall Champion: Highest score in all three of the above categories.

Best Table:  See below separate section.

Painting will be scored by judges using a scoring rubric.  We anticipate most armies  will likely receive a score in the 12-14 range with scores capped at a maximum of 25. 

Games will be worth up to 20 points each (note this was edited 10/10) and will have scenario driven primary and secondary objectives.   You will have to capture objectives to win matches. 

Sportsmanship will be scored on a binary per game and favorite opponent basis.  We expect the average player to achieve at least 10 points and the highest score in the room to be a max of 20 points.

Best Table

Players are invited to compete for our Best Table award.  We know you are creative and talented from your armies lets see what you can do with terrain!  You will need to bring in a tables worth of scenery. We will have a limited number of mats available for player provided terrain so you may want to bring your own to match your theme.     Players will vote for their favorite table at the end of Round 4.   Please bring a small placard (i.e. index card) indicating your name and theme.  For an AoS table we recommend printing appropriate warscrolls if any for your supplied terrain or indicating what features are Mysterious.     If you are interested in competing for this award please let us know so we can save a table for you.
