GAME TIMING This will be the first 2-day event in South-East Queensland using the new 2023-2024 General’s Handbook (GHB) so round times will be 2 hours and 45 minutes to allow everyone sufficient time to play. I will be making time announcements when you have 1 hour, 30 minutes, 15 minutes, 10 minutes and 5 minutes left in the battle round and will also make the round countdown clock available on the screens in the room to help keep you on track with your game. At the end of the round, I will call dice down and you will need to complete the current phase. I am encouraging players to discuss with each other and agree on a result based on the state of play. However, if this is not the case I will come over and decide the results of the match. If this cannot be determined by a few crucial dice rolls, I will defer to the score of the round where both players had both completed their turn to determine the winner and tournament points.
Chess clocks will not be mandatory at this tournament. However, you may use them if your opponent agrees to using one. No clocks will be available at the tournament so you will have to bring your own or source your own phone app.
LIST SUBMISSION Lists are to be submitted to Stats and Ladders. Lists must be formatted using either the AoS App or Warscroll Builder.
Lists MUST be submitted by Friday 11thAugust at 11:59pm. Each day that your list is late without sufficient reason will result in a 5 points deduction from your final battle score per day it is late.
You will need to have a registered account at my.statsandladders.com to add yourself and your list to the tournament.
As a courtesy to your opponent, please make available over the weekend a paper or digital copy of your list that they can view before your game starts. Make sure that it contains all battalions, spells, prayers, artefacts, mount traits, command traits, and endless spells included in your army roster. It is your responsibility to check your opponent’s list before the game and ask any questions about it. But if you do have an issue, please notify the TO and they will rectify the situation quickly and fairly.
The most recent Battletome for each faction will be available to play AS LONG AS the Battletome has had a subsequent FAQ OR 4-weeks have passed since the battletome was released. If the 4-week deadline has passed, then house rules may be implemented to tackle any outstanding rules issues.
Any new battletomes released after Saturday 15thJuly will not be used at this event.
Updates (such as FAQs, White Dwarf and Pitched Battle Profiles) will be used at this event. However, any updates and changes after list submission (Saturday 6th August) will not be allowed.
SCORING This event will be using tournament software provided by Stats and Ladders that uses the Win/Loss/Draw system with a Victory Point differential as the first tiebreaker and second tiebreaker will strength of schedule. Maximum tournament points per round is 20 with a maximum of 100 tournament points for the event.
TERRAIN Terrain will be pre-set up on each table. At the start of the round, players may minimally move terrain pieces to ensure that objective markers are flat on the table. If there are issues with placing faction specific faction terrain, summon over so that the TO can make the adjustment for you.
Players will need to role for Mysterious Terrain (page 94) before the start of each round.
Some terrain pieces may be marked with either an “I”(Impassable), a “D”(Defensible) or an “O” (Obscuring). As a house rule, if a terrain piece is over 4 inches tall, it is Impassable.
BLOOD RULES/GRUDGES Blood rules will not be in effect for this event.
Grudges will be available for round 1 for players that accept the challenge. You will need to email the TO before Friday 11th August 11:59PM with the names of both players that want to grudge each other. The grudge will only be official once you have received confirmation from the TO.

- They are not exact copies of currently purchasable GW models.

SPORTSMANSHIP How you conduct yourself at the table can make or break games and players experiences at events. The Player’s Code in the GHB (page 57) outlines some good gaming etiquette if you have not had many games or attended many tournaments. However, any anti-social behaviour, bullying, intimidation, or cheating will not be tolerated and may result in you being asked to leave the event. Please be respectful of each other, the venue that we are being allowed to use for this event and the organisers who are putting this event on for you.
If you have any rules disputes, in the first instance discuss it with your opponent and consult the relevant rules (warscroll cards, Battletome, GHB, FAQ, White Dwarf etc.) and try to come to a resolution on your own. If you are not able to come to an agreement, call over the TO and they will make a ruling for you. The TO’s ruling on this is final.
