Timings, Draw, and Pre-Setup
Each round will last 1 - 3 hours, and players will begin play as soon as they arrive and are paired.

In the event players are still not finished at the end of a game then they will be asked to stop and work out results.

We STRONGLY encourage each player to finish out their game even though they may be under certain defeat. This allows all players an opportunity to obtain secondary objective tournament points.

Players will create their army lists using the Matched Play system from the General’s Handbook 2018. Please note any other Warscroll with matched play points can be used (Forgeworld etc.).
Armies will be 750 -1500 - 3000 points and will follow all the restrictions for recruitment in the 2018 General’s Handbook.



Armies will be allowed to select realm artifacts listed from pages 72-85 in the Malign Sorcery book if the army is said to be from a specific realm. This MUST be shown in the army list.

Players are expected to hand in their lists on the day during registration. Each player is expected to have their list printed out or in a digital format for reference and to be able to show each opponent both lists before each game.
Note that for this tournament, and all tournaments going forward, WE WILL NOT ACCEPT HANDWRITTEN LISTS. This is because we will not have time to verify the accuracy of these lists on the day of the tournament. There are several programs that will calculate your army list for you for free, including www.scrollbuilder.com. Printing the list is preferred, but we will accept a digital copy.
For clarity
• All your Allegiance Abilities, Command Traits, and Artifacts must be stated on your army list.
• Your army’s home realm, if you choose one, must be stated in your army list. Including realm artifacts/spells you choose.
• All units must be written in the sizes they will be used in (including things like fanatics).
• All upgrades and options must be shown on the list.

We think games of AoS look best when all models are fully painted and modeled to represent what they should on the battlefield. While fully painted armies are not a requirement for this tournament, we wish to encourage players to paint their armies. We have adopted the following rules for our tournaments.

Battle Forged - An army that is fully painted may re-roll priority rolls of a 1. If your army is Battle Forged and your opponent is not, you may choose deployment instead of rolling off. If both players are Battle Forged, roll off as normal.

An army is considered Battle Forged when the following apply
• All models used must be fully painted miniatures of the appropriate type for the troops they represent.
• The minimum requirement is 3 colors in an appropriate scheme, with textured/painted bases.
• All models are WYSIWYG to their warscroll description.
o i.e All unit options and command models must be shown on the models, for example if the models in a liberator unit have Sigmarite Hammers and a Grand Hammer you cannot use the rules for Sigmarite Swords and a Grand Blade.
Undermanned – An army that has fewer than 50% of their units painted must re-roll priority rolls of 6. i.e. if your army has 10 units total (including heroes) and fewer than 5 units are unpainted or not fully painted, your army is Undermanned. See Battle Forged requirements above for what is considered to be a “fully painted” unit.

This tournament will feature Secret Objectives which players may score during the course of their battles. Before each game, players will select a Secret Objective from random cards that are drawn during each game. All players will have access to the same list of Secret Objectives, but will not reveal to their opponent. If you achieve your Secret Objective during the course of the battle, you will receive a great boon! (Tournament Points).


Battle Tournament Points:
• Major Victory = 30 TP’s
• Minor Victory = 20 TP’s
• Draw = 15 TP’s
• Minor Loss = 10 TP’s
• Major Loss = 0 TP’s

Secret Objective Tournament Points:
• Points listed on cards = TBD

Painting Tournament Points:
• Army is Battle Forged = 15 TP’s
• Best Painted Allied Unit Nomination = 10 TP’s
• Best painted Allied Unit = 5 TP’s

Sportsmanship Tournament Points:
• Up to 30 TP’s based on “favorite game” votes.

The Champion of the Mortal Realms will be the player with most Tournament Points, if two people are tied then the following will be considered in this order until a winner is determined:

• Secondary Objective Points - Each players secondary objective points will be added to break any ties on Tournament Points

All 3 battle plans are unknown to players and will be revealed by the tournament organizer prior to each round.

This tournament will be played in the realm of Hysh. Each player will have access to the realm spell and command ability for the table they are playing on, listed on page 259 of the Core Book. Players will also roll for the “Realmscape Feature” for their table at the beginning of each game and follow the rules accordingly.

Armies will be allowed to select realm artifacts listed from pages 72-85 in the Malign Sorcery book if the army is said to be from a specific realm. This MUST be shown in the army list.
Example: A Stormcast Eternals army from Aqshy (realm of fire) is fighting an Ironjawz army from Ulgu (realm of shadow). The Stormcast and Ironjawz player could have previously selected a realm artifact from their home realm (Aqshy and Ulgu, respectively) from the Malign Portents book. This should be shown on their lists. They are then matched on a table set in Ghur (realm of beasts). Both players will then be able to use the realm spell and realm command ability for the realm they are fighting in (Ghur) from the Core Book, as well as all of Ghur spells listed in the Malign Sorcery book.

Terrain will be pre-set. Please do not move any pieces.

Scenery Rules: Scenery rules may be used in this tournament. Discuss with your opponent and agree prior to deployment if you would/wouldn’t like to use Scenery rules.

• Champion of the Mortal Realms – 40% of the entry fees in store credit
• 2nd place - 30% of the entry fees in store credit
• 3rd place - 20% of the entry fees in store credit
• Wooden Spoon – consolation prize
