Date and Time
The team tournament will be held on July 30th 2011. We will start as promptly as possible at 10AM and play 3 games allowing for 3 hours per game with a short break to eat between the first and second. The games are long, and the day is longer. Please come prepared for an entire day of tournament play.
The team tournament is being presented by The Assault Phase gaming club, and will be held at Parker, Banner, Kent & Wayne Comics and Games in Cornelius, NC. Please see the web site for PBKW for directions or other information: http://www.pbkwcomics.com/
Registration & Cost
This is a team based tournament. A team consists of two players, each with their own army list (configuration details are covered later). Each team will pay an entry fee of $20 (or $10 per person). Teams should register prior to the day of the event for several reasons that will be covered shortly, but to register simply send an email to one of the addresses below, or call PBKW @ 704-892-GAME (4263). We will take 25 registrations, and allow for a few more to show up the day of.
You can also register by posting on the The Assault Phase forums, but if you do please ensure that you leave some form of contact information.
All that is required to register is the name of the team and contact information. We’ll let you know if you are on any kind of waiting list of back log.
Prize support will come from entry fees and GW tournament support. Monetary prizes are presented as store credit for use at PBKW (which carries an excellent selection of all popular gaming supplies and games). We also plan to have some random events during the tournament during which small prizes can be won for performing actions during a game. If you win a prize you will walk away with the prize that day.
Jon Kirby, a valued member of the Assault Phase gaming group, has been generous enough to donate a large lot of Black Library products for additional prize support. We have not yet determined the distribution method for these, but the contents of the collection is listed below:
· 17 Omnibuses
· 4 SM battle books
· 27 Novels
· 15 Horus Heresy
· 4 WHFB
· Quiz book
· Audio Book
· IG primer (damocalies gulf ed)
These books are in excellent condition, but have been read, and are not considered to be part of the primary prize support. They are a great reason that just about anyone could win something during the tournament.
This tournament will use a modified shared force organization requirement. This is listed below. In addition, individuals in a team must also adhere to the force organization chart listed in their individual codex.
Modified Shared Force Org.
HQ = 2 required + 1 optional
Elite = 4 optional
Troops = 3 required + 4 optional
Fast Attack = 4 optional
Heavy Support = 4 optional
Each team may use in total no more than 2500 points. Each team member is required to field 1100 points minimum, leaving 300 points to be shared according to the needs of the team.
Clearly built army lists must be presented for each individual, and will be checked during the tournament. If any list is found to be incorrect the team using that list will forfeit the game(s) it was used in giving a maximum victory to the opposing team(s).
We want this tournament to be very fun, challenging and interesting for folks that are up to planning for it. Outside of rules that specifically state that they only affect certain friendlies or certain factions (we don’t want to break any established rules) we are going to completely open the door to allow any combinations and synergies you can come up with that are not explicitly denied by existing rules.
An example of something that would be allowed:
Eldar Seer Council picked by a heavy support Land Raider and casting fortune on the land raider.
An example of something not allowed:
Genestealers deploying in a Space Marine Drop Pod. You can’t buy a drop pod as a dedicated transport for Genestealers, only for marines.
Everyone is challenged to come up with the most interesting/powerful synergies they can.
If you have a question about whether something specific will be allowed, please post the question to the Assault phase forums at The Assault Phase .
