Lists should be typed in a logical format with full names, point costs and breakdown of points where relevant. Before each round your opponent may check your list so please ensure you have ALL relevant literature. Failure to do so may result in a disqualification.
The Chapter Approved Maelstrom of War Missions and Tactical Objectives will be used
Games will be scored in the following manner.
Win = 10 points
Draw = 5 points
Loss = 1 point
In the event of a point tie on the leader board, the number of victory points earned will be to determine the winner (so make a note of them on your sheet). If still tied after this then blood points will be used.
1 point will be awarded at the end of each round for having a fully painted army
A unit is worth a number of Blood Points equal to its cost in points. You score these points for enemy units/vehicles destroyed, fled off the board or fleeing at the end of the game. Keep a note of Blood Points earned at the end of each game as these will help with rankings. Half Blood Points are scored at the end of the game for the following:
Units below 50% starting number of wounds.
Monstrous Creatures and vehicles below 50% starting wounds.
A note on being under pointed: All armies should be worth exactly the points available for this event, if your army is less than the available points then your opponent automatically gets those points at the end of the game. E.g., if your army is worth 1995/2000 you opponent automatically gets the additional 5 points that you haven't spent, this is the ensure lists are not intentionally under pointed.
Participants are expected to turn up on time. They should ensure they start their rounds in a timely fashion and avoid time delaying during rounds.
Participants must bring the following:
A copy of the 8th edition rulebook
A copy of their appropriate codex or index
A copy of Chapter Approved 2017
A full print out of your list
Dice, tape measure, Wound markers and a pen.
In the event you fail to bring any of these items and are found to need them in a rules query you will be ruled against.
If the event prize pool warrants a Best Painted prize, during the lunch any players wishing to enter the painting competition will be asked to display their army. Outpost staff and other players will vote on armies and decide the best painted. To enter, your army must be fully painted.
If the event prize pool warrants a Bloodiest General prize, the player with the highest Blood Points value will be crowned the Bloodiest General.
