We’re trying to bring sexy back to 40k!
FTW Games (the home of Spikey Bits) will be hosting a 40k 1,999 +1 Points Tournament Saturday May 10th at 10 AM.
$100 minimum in store credit for prize support
So regardless of how many people show up, the prize will be at least $100 split amongst the prize winners (First, Second, and Third)! Of course if more that 10 people show up, then the prize pot goes up as well!
To encourage more interactions between players, new rules for fielding allies are in place for our tournaments at FTW Games.
There are no more Battle Brothers (and thusly Allied Death Stars, or castings of blessings on allied units). See our new allies matrix below where we have changed all Battle Brothers to Allies of Convenience.
- Forge World Imperial Armor units with the “40K” stamp, and other IA units that are not in a book i.e “experiment rules”, (and are not super heavy flyers / super heavies) are legal for play.
- You must have the exact FW model to used these rules, or a very, very close proxy for it. If you are in doubt about what is allowed, or if your models is acceptable for this event, send us a message or call.
- All 40k Approved fortification are allowed. If taking a fortification larger than an aegis line, simply remove one piece of terrain from your table half if your fortification comes within 3″ of it. If more than once piece of terrain conflicts with your fortification, please see a judge for placement.
- Please use this matrix to determine what the most recent set of rules are for your 40k Approved units. Keep in mind it has not been updated since March 2014, so any book released since then may contain newer rules for your units.
Due to recent tournament events the following rules are now also in place.
Each game must go at least four rounds, or else each player will receive a 0 for their score that round. Remaining times are called out throughout the round, and players will be encouraged to finish at least four turns. If your game continually going slow, please call over a judge for help.
Army lists must be produced by a validating roster program. (i.e. Army Builder, Battlescribe, etc.) and printed in a readable format for the judges. If you need to use a program to construct you list, please get here early on the day to use our Army Builder program.
Armies are not normally legal for play unless their physical book is in print for a least one month prior to the event. The lastest Codex that is legal for this event is Astra Militarum from April 2014
++ Dataslates / Advent Calendar rules are not legal for this event, nor is Escalation or Stronghold Assault. ++
You must also have a physical copy of the army book(s) or the eBook equivalent for the army you are fielding with you during the event for reference!
This event is first come, first served. A spot may be reserved by paying the entrance fee at FTW Games in advance, or calling and getting on the list.
No refunds. Army Lists may be submitted for review. Although this is encouraged, it is not required.
If you need to use the computer to print your army list please be here at 10am sharp!
