PAIRINGS

Pairing cards will be used.  Roll up a Matched Play battleplan to be used for each game before the armies are chosen.  No battleplan will be played more than twice per match.  

 

Step 1 - First 2 match-ups

• Both Teams simultaneously place 1 army on the table

• Both Teams simultaneously offer 2 armies for the opponent’s placed army to choose from.

• Both Teams simultaneously choose which one of the 2 opponent’s offers they want.

• The army initially placed will fight against the offered army selected.

• Unchosen army is returned to its Team

Step 2 - Match-ups 3rd and 4th

• Develops exactly as Step 1.

Step 3 - All 4 match-ups left

• Both Teams simultaneously place 1 army on the table.

• Both Teams simultaneously offer 2 armies for the opponent’s placed army to choose from.

• At this point each Team has only 1 card in his hand (Started with 4, placed 1, and offered 2)

Each team simultaneously chooses which one of the opponent’s 2 offered armies they want to face their initially placed army (Match-ups 5th and 6th). 

Each army not chosen will face the one card left in the Team’s hand. (Match Up's 7+8)

Scoring

Games are decided as per the Generals Handbook batteplans.  

Major Min = 20 Points
Minor Win =15 Points
Draw = 10 points
Minor Loss = 5 Points 
Major Loss = 0 Points

The team with the most points at the end of the event is the winner. 

In the event of a tie the result between the tied teams will be the decider.

Otherwise the tiebreaker will Total Major Victories and then Warscroll points scored. 

Army Selection rules.

Armies are 2000 points.

Only war scrolls with a Pitched Battle Profile may be used and the Experimental Generals Handbbok points will be used.  

Warscrolls may not be duplicated across armies in a team but may be duplicated in a single players army.  

Each team must include at least 1 of each grand alliance.

 

Painting Requirements.

We think games of AoS look best when all models are fully painted and modelled to represent what they should on the battlefield.

• All models used must be fully painted miniatures of the appropriate type for the troops they represent.

• Proxies are not allowed. Using other manufacturers models and/or conversions is ok but they must be fully representative of the unit they intend to replace. 

• Named Characters must be the correct model. 

• The minimum requirement is 3 colours in an appropriate and cohesive scheme, with textured/painted bases.

• Due to the fact there is a significant advantage to using incorrect base sizes models must be based on appropriate round/oval bases.

• Models not painted or based appropriately WILL be removed as casualties.

• All unit options and command models must be shown on the models, for example if the models in a liberator unit have Sigmarite Hammers and a Grand Hammer you cannot use the rules for Sigmarite Swords and a Grand Blade.

 

Points will be awarded in this section for the following areas. This is per player.

 

All models in the army meet the minimum painting standards - 1 point

The army is fully cohesive and looks like an army rather than a borrowed selection of units - 1 point

I have to ask you guys something,

PAIRINGS

Pairing cards will be used.  Roll up a Matched Play battleplan to be used for each game before the armies are chosen.  No battleplan will be played more than twice per match.  

Do you mean that we roll 8 times at each round for battle plans?  Doesent that kinda ruin the whole idea with cordinate and make balanced lists? If I do understand the text correctly we can get for example Three places of Power every round, and problem with that is that we make 2 Great lists just for that mission and send those players to only play those because they excel just that mission. and so forth to make 2 Great lists for borderwar/escalation.. 

Wouldnt it be more tactical(and lots more fun) to roll only once by TO before each round(re-roll those battleplan we already hade previous rounds) to see what battleplan we are going to play? it would make it harder to make more balanced list for every scenario rather than make em for 1-2 battleplans.
