This is a 7th Edition event.  Game mechanics, Special Rules and FAQ’s from the most recent release are live.  Each player must bring a 1500 point Battle-Forged army.  Armies must have 1 primary detachment; an optional maximum of 1 allied detachment using 7 edition ally matrix is permitted.

  • Each round will be assigned a round score based on game results, all round scores will be tabulated in order to determine winner for event.  Round scoring will not be used to determine pairing for next round. Round scoring: Major Victory/Tabling= 7pts, Victory= 5pts; Draw= 2pts, Loss= 0 (major victory is considered when a player scores double +1 victory point more than opponent).
