RULES AND REGULATIONS
• All armies must be fully painted. Any miniatures not fully painted will be pulled from the table prior to starting the tournament.
• Rounds will be determined by Swiss system come ready to play all armies
• We will use Extended Battle Plans where the players and his opponent will choose their stance and roll a die. The players will then play the mission chosen.
• Players are responsible for monitoring the time and the judges will announce time intervals throughout the tournament. A true act of sportsmanship is not starting a new turn if both players will not be able to finish that turn. The game should be called if both players cannot finish their turn and the results should be calculated.
• Slow play is to be actively discouraged, repeated offenses may result in loss of points or forfeited matches. This is a Nationals competition, if you cannot play a game to completion due to size/compliment or familiarity with your army, you might want to revisit your choice. Most players should be able to complete their turns within 10-15 minutes.
• When time is called the game must immediately end regardless of the action taking place in the game. New turns cannot be started even if starting a new turn would award an immediate victory or cause a player to make a company morale check.
• Painting Competition: Any players that wish their armies to be considered for the best painted competition will stage them at the lunch break in the designated area with a name plate on the display. All models in the army must be from Battlefront Miniatures
• Unit histories are not necessary.
All lists must include the following information:
o Player’s full name
o Player’s email address
o Club name (if applicable)
o Army list being used (For example: Panzergrenadier Company)
