Merlyn's is hosting a Warhammer 40k tournament on Sunday, May 29th! Lists will be 1500 points, and signups will start at 10:00. There will be a $10 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.

Once again, we'll be offering the Beginners' tables in addition to the main event. These games will hopefully emphasize a learning atmosphere in which new players can check out the game and get advice from more experienced hobbyists, without diving headfirst into the tournament format.

We'll be using basic scenarios and force organizations, with no weird or special rules. Entry will be free, and the prize will be free entry into our next competitive event ($10.00 value). Lists should be 500 or 1000 points (if you bring a 1000 point list, please be sure to have a 500 point backup!)

The regular players in our 40k events will not be eligible for entry into this event. Eligibility will be at my sole discretion.

Players and lists will nominally be subject to the same rules found in our standard events, but we will be lenient on procedural and representational issues.
