Results for Battlehost will contribute towards the national rankings scoring system for New Zealand. http://www.warhammernz.com/










1.      Measure from base to base. Square bases allowed.


2.      When measuring distance vertically, you will use a volume from base foot print as high as the models head (or torso) whichever is the highest point (please note this excludes limbs, wings, weapons banners and weapons even if they have a head on a spear…) Please see picture below.


3.       If there are multiple versions of a warscroll available, you must use the most recent, unless your opponent agrees otherwise.


4.      A natural roll of a 6 to hit and to wound will always succeed.


5.      Models which cannot be attacked or targeted are unable to score or contest objectives (Carrion/Changeling ect)


6.      The “Battle begins” section of the rules will not be used.

Battlehost @ ValleyCon numbers have been cap at 20 players. We currently have 18 so there is only 2 spots up for grabs! We are currently the joint biggest system been run!


The cap has been enforced by the Hutt Miniature Wargames Club due to space running out at the venue. A waiting list will be started if we exceed 20 and we might be offered more space if sales are slow in other systems. Unfortunately we won't know this until a the week of the tournament.
