List Building & Submission:

Each army will consist of current matched play warscrolls up to 2000 points. Standard rules apply here.

Each of the 4 Grand Alliances must be included in the team.

  • There can be no duplicates of warscrolls between the team lists. This applies to mercenaries, endless spells etc.
  • Lists are due June 1st by 8:00pm and must be submitted directly to Stats & Ladders.


Since this event is happening right around the release of 4th Ed and a new GHB, further details about battleplans will be announced closer to the list submission date.

Rounds will go for 3 hours 15 minutes including pairings and battleplan selection. 

Chess clocks are allowed if both players agree. 

If you cannot complete a full battleround in the time left you can calculate out the remainder of the game with your opponent. If you cannot come to an agreement on the outcome of the game, even in the presence of the TO the game will be scored according to the last completed battle-round.

Painting Standard:

Battle ready is the minimum expected standard. Unpainted models may not be used.

We will be using the following rubric for paint scores. The individual paint scores of players will be added to their overall team score.

Bases painted single colour - 1 point.

Bases have texture paint - 2 points.

Bases have texture, flock, sand, slate, cork, rocks, water effects and or tufts - 3 points

Army is battle ready* - 3 points.

Army is parade ready** - 5 points

Army paint scheme is cohesive - 3 point

Army has kitbashed/converted models - 2 points

Army features freehand - 2 points

Army features OSL - 2 points

Army features NMM - 3 points

Army has a display board - 1 point

Paint scores capped at 10 points. Paint scores will be added to your total Tournament Points.

* Battle ready = based coated and shades applied, or contrast painted.

** Parade ready = Battle ready + layers and highlights.

Pairings System:

Each round there will be 4 different battleplans in play, numbered 1-4.

  1. Team captains roll off. The winner of that roll gets to choose if they want first pick of the matchups, or first pick of the battleplan allocation. 
  2. The captain in charge of matchups (Team A) puts up the army they want to run for the first matchup. 
  3. The captain of the opposition (Team B) puts up 2 armies (cannot include a mirror) and the captain of Team A selects their opponent. 
  4. Then Team A puts up 2 options against the unchosen opponent from Team B, who then selects what they want to play against. 
  5. Team B puts up their last 2 armies and Team A makes the final selection. Any choice that would force a factional mirror cannot be selected at this stage.

'Mirror Matches' refers to the same faction facing off against each other. The same Grand Alliance may battle, but there cannot be the same faction e.g. KO vs KO or Gitz vs Gitz. Khorne vs Slaaaaanesh is ok. Stormcast vs Seraphon is fine etc etc.


Individual matchups:

  • Scoring will be done using W/D/L.
  • Conceding results in maximum points and VP going to the winner and a loss being recorded for the person conceding.
  • The tie-breaker will be total VP.

It is up to the captains to submit and check that the scores submitted are correct.

Round results:

The teams overall result based on the matches will award them the following points for each round:

  • The winning team gets 50 points.
  • The losing team gets 10 points.
  • A draw will result in both teams being allocated 20 points.
  • First tie-breaker will be total VP.
  • Second tie-breaker will be Strength of Schedule


  • The 1st place team will square off in a general's showdown for a bonus prize in addition to a cut of the first placed teams prize package, and be crowned the ultimate champion of the weekend. 
  • Teams that place 2nd and 3rd will each receive a prize package.
  • There will be a prize for the best painted army as slected by the TO and their assistant judges.
  • There will be a prize for the best team theme (the team that puts the most effort into a cohesive thematic style).
