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.
• Missions will be selected randomly immediately before each round, any mission will only be played once in the tournament. The first and third rounds will be played with one of the “basic” first six missions in the book. The second mission will be from the “more missions” area. The final mission will be random from any remaining unplayed missions.
• 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.
• We will have only 2 hours per round so slow play will 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.
• Painting Competition: Any players that wish their armies to be considered for the best painted competition will stage them at the first lunch break in the designated area with a name plate on the display. All models in the army must be from Battlefront Miniatures.
• 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.
• Unit histories are not necessary.
• Army lists must be submitted to [email protected] (Third Party army list creation sites (i.e., Easy Army, Army Builder) may be used as well as the generic army list excel spreadsheet located on the Flames of War website. 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: Tank Company)
o Book or website reference (For example: Overlord)

Attacker / Defender
Attacker and defender will be determined by referencing the mobility value listed below:
Infantry, man packed guns, and gun platoons = mobility 0
Half tracked and wheeled platoons = mobility 1

Add the mobility value of your platoons together, the player with the highest number is the attacker.
