War on One-Forty-Twenty "Murder"
All contact with the 140th ceased, save for a lone distress call from Blood Angels Captain Khitas Frome, "This. World. Is. Murder."
This event is a Horus Heresy tournament. For your Horus Heresy armies you will build a 2500 point list utilizing the Age of Darkness FOCs excluding the Leviathan FOC.
Slightly different from other events there will be an Apocalypse game going on in the Background, 45 minute turns with a lunch break after Game Turn 2 of Tyranids Versus 30k Imperium. Loyalist victories may provide a boon to the imperium forces or a bane to the Tyranids and vice versa for traitor victories.
We, the members of the Golar's 222nd, are striving to provide custom boards with amazing, game changing terrain. We are perfecting amazing new events and scenarios where sportsmanship and comradery are more important than winning. All styles of play (WAAC (Win At All Costs), HFCP (Hard Fought Competitive Play) and FAAC (Fun At All Costs)) are welcome at our events and we will always strive to achieve the best experience for everyone in this impossible goal.
From you the player, we expect you to be intent on having the most fun you can possible have. Be honest in your selection of your play style, so that we can get you the best pairings. As a HFCP will not have much fun against a new player, etc. And lastly we expect you to abide by Golar’s 222nd Code of Ethics.
Shattered Legions will not be allowed at this event. The goal is to have fun, players are not limited to timeline restricted rules, IE World Eaters Blood lust or blood madness.

Battle points 0 – 45 from 3 rounds with a possible score of 15 points per game. Accomplish primary (relic, kill points, etc), secondary (maelstrom), tertiary (table corners, closest to the middle of the board, etc) and special missions for points (slay the warlord, line breaker, etc).
Comradery 0 – 15 from 4 rounds with a possible score of 5 points per game. Yes this is a polite off, the worst part of many tournaments is people being an ass. In Golar’s 222nd tournament this is a part of your overall score as scored by your opponent. All 0s, 1s, will need to be explained to a T.O. the worse opponent you’ve played in a year should get a 1 or 0 while the best game you’ve played should get a 5.
Sportsmanship 0 – 15 from 4 rounds with a possible score of 5 points per game. Different from Comradery, this metric measures people playing the game correctly. Correct movement, have templates, books, list, showing die rolls, template coverages over models etc. All 0s, 1s will need to be explained to a T.O.
Painting 0 – 42 points and will be judged during the lunch break. The rubric being used to judge painting will be uploaded prior to the event. To achieve max points you will need more than just epic painting skills, basing and display board/materials are a part of the scoring.
1st, 2nd, 3rd place as well as best painted will receive prize support. The same army cannot win best painted until an entire year has passed.
Everyone will be walking away with a little something.
The person with the best combine Comradery & Sportsmanship will receive the Golar’s 222nd Red Purity Seal. This will be the 3rd Purity seal to be issued by Golar’s 222nd and the only method to get you own copy of the seal. The same person cannot win the purity seal in back to back events.
Golar’s 222nd Event Code of Ethics:
• Individuals must abide by the any and all rules set by the hosting location. Dragon’s Lair code of conduct: http://dlair.net/sanantonio/events/code-of-conduct/.
• What you see is what you get “WYSIWYG” is the norm for all events and is expected unless otherwise noted in the event description. Unless otherwise noted all fully painted models have preferred enemy unpainted models.
• Cheating is absolutely detested in Golar’s 222nd. Weighted dice, oversized templates of measuring devices, etc will be dealt with severely.
• Sportsmanship is expected at all times. We all get excited during game play and occasional mis-measure, the template looks like it only hits 2 to your but your opponent sees 4, this is going to happen and may cost you sportsmanship points. However, it this happens excessively we may consider this a violation of our ethics.
• You can curse you dice, curse you miniatures, and curse your traveling case. You cannot however curse you opponent, complain about his list, or make unfounded accusations about your opponent.
• Be mindful of what you say, “I should have won this game but my dice failed me.” This sort of statement is taken as a compliment by some and an insult by others. Instead try saying, “I thought I had this one in the bag but you certainly out played me,” or “Wow you’re dice are on fire, do you have them blessed by the pope or something?” Humor and humility will go much further than venting your frustrations at that time and place.
• Individuals who have previously been banned from San Antonio Tournaments by other tournament organizers will not be welcome at Golar’s 222nd events until their suspension period is up.
