We believe the Win/Loss format neglects major aspects of the hobby and thus isolates many active members of Warhammer 40K. We strive to address these omissions with our Bringing The Hobby Back (BHB) format, which hearkens back to Games Workshop’s bygone Rogue Trader Tournament format.
We also believe that multiple tournament formats can only benefit and grow the pool of active competitive players. A rising tide lifts all boats.

Our doubles tournament allows each player to bring 1000 point force, which you will pair with another player to form a 2000 point team. Specific army composition rules will follow in the coming weeks, but the general guideline is that nearly everything is legal. But here’s the rub, your team’s army composition score is judged by your opponents

In a BHB format event, each player can achieve a maximum of 100 points. Battlepoints account for 54% of a player’s score. Army Composition (Comp) accounts for 12%. Theme for 6%, Appearance for 16%, and Preferred Opponent for 12%. An explanation of each subset follows.

Chapter Approved 2017 will be used. All Games Workshop FAQs will be in play with the following exception: If a FAQ or Codex comes out 2 weeks prior to the tournament, we will not use it. We will use ALL errata, even if it comes out the day of the tourney.

Follow order of operations and rules as in the main rulebook, Chapter Approved, and FAQs.

Best Coast Pairings now has hobby scores, so that app is amazing to use. However, you can still use the more archaic spreadsheets below as well:
