PostPosted: Sun Dec 30, 2012 12:01 pm    Post subject: Merlyns Warhammer 40k Tournament January 13th, 1850 points

Merlyn's is hosting a Warhammer 40k tournament on Sunday, January 13th! Lists will be 1850 points, and signups will start at 10:00. There will be a $10 entry fee that will be added to the prize pool. Please be in the store before 10:30 to register.


Some general rules:
-Warhammer 40,000 6th 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.
- 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.
- Non GW models will be allowed, but they must be appropriate representations of the unit in question. Models and wargear should be modeled in such a way that they are both internally consistent within the army and not confusing to other players. Proxying is NOT allowed. The judge will be the final arbiter of the legality of a model.
- Models in your army must be scaled to GW's 28mm, or close enough to not affect game play.
- 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.


Games, Scoring, and Prizes

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

-This event will be scored using a win/loss format, with Victory Points for tiebreakers. The scenarios will be slightly different from those we've used before. If you would like more information, please see Steve in store.

Will it possible to meet with the judges prior to the day of the tournament in order to check model legality and such?

I'm not sure if I'll be judging this one, but you're welcome to stop in when I'm here to show me anything you've got questions on. I'll make a decision then pass it on to whoever's going to be in on that day. The rules presented here are pretty strict, but only so expectations are clear in the event of abuse. Most good faith conversions or counts-as will be fine.

-Steve, at Merlyns

I will actually be running this one, so I will be there on Sunday. If you stop in Friday, please see me before 5:30, and on Saturday, I'll be in store from 4:00 until close.

Turnout varies widely on these. I expect between 6 and 12 players, with 16 being our absolute upper limit. I could run tables for 24 if we had to, and with prep that number goes up to about 40.

There are not. Painting is not required for my events, but sometimes we have an extra award for painted or converted models.
