Here we go. A real competitive tourney! I'll be there with the Tallarn XIIIth.
Hive Fleet Indy Year-End Tournament
Nov. 6th @ Games2Die4
1,750 pts w/normal force organization
This will be a WIN or LOSE format. There will be no soft scores, but there will be separate prizes for army appearance and a sportsmanship award. Army appearance will be a player’s choice award and sportsmanship will be a combination of player input and TO judgment. ALL armies must be based and have at least 3 colors of paint on them; any army that does not meet this requirement will suffer a 250 victory point reduction per game. This is to promote the hobby aspect of our game and I don’t want it to make someone “lose” because of it. Entry fee is $10 and we will have GW prize support as well.
These will be from the rulebook with a few minor modifications.
Seize Ground + Dawn of War.
Find the center point and place an objective, then find the center of each table quarter and place another in each for a total of five objectives. Secondary objective is table quarters. In the event of a draw you will use VP’s as the tie-breaker.
Capture&Control + Pitched Battle
Place objectives as normal, then place an objective in the center point of the table. Secondary objective is table quarters. In the event of a draw you will use VP’s as the tie-breaker.
Annihilation + Spearhead
There will be 9” from center point for deployment and place an objective at the center point of the table. If both players have equal KP’s at the end of the game then you will count how many UNITS each player has within 12” of the objective. Secondary objective is table quarters.
We will be using all current FAQ’s and the rulebook for play and judging. Start time is 11:30 am and there will be 3 rounds @ 2 hour time limits with 2-15 minute breaks and ½ hour for lunch.
Prizes= 1st-90, 2nd-50, 3rd-40, 4th-30, 5th-20 there will also be $25 for army appearance and sportsmanship as well as a $10 prize to be awarded by the TO. The prize payout is based upon a full field of 20 and will scale down per attendance.
