PostPosted: Wed Sep 08, 2010 10:03 am    Post subject: Warhammer 40k Tournament September 19th, 1500 points

Merlyn's is hosting a Warhammer 40k tournament on Sunday, September 19th! Lists will be 1500 points, and signups will start at 10:00. There will be a $5 entry fee that will be added to the prize pool, which begins at $50. Please be in the store before 10:30 to register.

Some general rules:
-Warhammer 40,000 5th Edition Rules will be used.
- Rules and Army Lists marked as ‘Trial’ or ‘Optional’ are not allowed. Unofficial rules sets are not allowed. In addition, the Following are NOT legal for the 40K Tournament:
Armored Company (Any Variation)
- Specific Zone fighting rules will NOT be in effect – Including Jungle Fighting or City Fighting.
- The models used in your army must be Games Workshop Miniatures.
- What You See Is What You Get (WYSIWYG). If you wish to use an item, it must be represented on the figure. Each figure must be fitted to the base supplied for the figure in its blister or box. Only Vehicles may be without a base.
- You must bring all materials needed to play including dice, templates, measuring devices, templates, models, calculators, and any rules that you will be using. If the Codex is available for your army you must have it with you at all times. You must also have the latest version of the FAQ for your army, available from the Games Workshop website. Each player should also bring at least 3 objective markers on 40mm bases.
- Each player must provide their opponent during each round a copy of their army list.
- All Tournament missions are considered ‘Standard’ for Space Marine Drop Pod special rules.
- In order to keep the Tournament running on schedule, when time is called for a round, all players must drop their dice and stop playing – no exceptions. Because of this, please be aware of the time left in the round and do not start a full turn you cannot finish. At a minimum, a 30-minute warning will be called by the Judge.
- If illegal units or Tournament rules violations are found in a player’s list, at a minimum, the models in violation will be removed from all subsequent play. Please check with Tournament judges prior to the event for any questions in advance.
- All rulings by the Tournament judges will be final.
- If a model is listed in an official GW Codex and it does not have a GW figure available for it, you may use an appropriate scratch-built model or conversion to represent it. Otherwise, you must use an appropriate GW or ForgeWorld model to represent the unit in question.

Games, Scoring, and Prizes

- There will be 3 rounds in the Tournament, with each round consisting of one two-hour game.


The following times are subject to change.

10:00 – Doors open
10:00 – 10:30 – Set up, Sign-In, and Introductions
10:30 – 10:45 – Round 1 Table Assignments and Setup

Question: I haven't been in one of your tournaments yet, but I want to. And I was just wondering where I can get objectives on 40mm bases.

There's not really 40mm objective markers you can just buy. Some people make themed objective markers for their army (casualties, icons, supply crates, fleshy xeno stuff, etc etc) out of extra bits and a spare 40mm base. Or you can just take the 40mm bases and paint them with cross hairs, or numbers or something like that.

If you don't have spare 40mm bases, you can make something similar using a hobby knife and balsa wood, insulation foam, cereal box cardboard, cheap 'for sale' signs from walmart, etc.

The very existence of flamethrowers proves that some time, somewhere, someone said to themselves, -- You know, I want to set those people over there on fire, but I'm just not close enough to get the job done. -- George Carlin
