Army List

Army Lists that are sent in on time, legal and in the correct format will get 30 points

If your list is late or illegal you will get 0 points.

Army lists must be submitted at baddice.co.uk/listsubmission before midnight on Weds 9th Jan

There will be no leeway on penalties.  It is Christmas and everyone is busy, so if you think it might be a problem over the holidays send it in now.  

The same applies to timekeeping. Ensure you select an army that you are able to play in the time allotted and are keeping track of the time taken during your games.  No-one wants to see the masters decided on a timekeeping penalty or late game.

Major Loss - 0


Soft Scores
Lists - 30
