• Any Errata related to the rules or their force(s)

Players should also bring dice, tokens, template, measuring tape, objectives, rule supplements or anything else they might need to play their army.

Armies don’t need to be fully painted or based but this will be part of the tournaments scoring. WYSIWIG in terms of models is enforced. Players should inform their opponents of any specialized teams, or special rules before their games(s) starts.

Missions will be determined the Flames of War more mission packet on Battlefront’s website. Packet will be provided.

Initial pairings will be based on Axis against Allied, distance traveled by players, and previous standings on battle rankings. Subsequent parings will be based on wins and losses and relative score of wins and losses. Table assignment will be random and no table can be requested to be played on. The TO will attempt to ensure no player plays on the same table twice. No player will play on the same table consecutively. Players with limited mobility will be accommodated for.

The TO will announce time throughout the tournament. If the round is about to end (30mins or less) both players should be able to get a full turn in before the round ends. When time is called players need to finish the step they are on.

A few players asked if we will be using the new more mission packet with additional missions. Because there is not an official matrix yet I won't be using those missions for this tournament but I do plan on using them for future events.
