• All armies must be fully painted. Any miniatures not fully painted will be pulled from the table prior to starting the tournament.

• We will use the Battleplans in the More mission packet (https://www.flamesofwar.com/portals/0/D ... ssions.pdf) where the players and his opponent will choose their stance and then roll a die. The players will then play the mission chosen.

• Players are responsible for monitoring the time and the judges will announce time intervals throughout the tournament. A true act of sportsmanship is not starting a new turn if both players will not be able to finish that turn. The game should be called if both players cannot finish their turn and the results should be calculated.

• We will have only 2 hours per round so slow play will be actively discouraged, repeated offenses may result in loss of points or forfeited matches. This is a Nationals competition, if you cannot play a game to completion due to size/compliment or familiarity with your army, you might want to revisit your choice. Most players should be able to complete their turns within 10-15 minutes.

• Painting Competition: Any players that wish their armies to be considered for the best painted competition will stage them at the lunch break after the second game in the designated area with a name plate on the display. All models in the army must be from Battlefront Miniatures.

• When time is called the game must immediately end regardless of the action taking place in the game. New turns cannot be started even if starting a new turn would award an immediate victory or cause a player to make a company morale check.

• Unit histories are not necessary.

• Army lists must be submitted to USNationals@battlefront.co.nz (Third Party army list creation sites (i.e., Easy Army, Army Builder) may be used as well as the generic army list excel spreadsheet located on the Flames of War website. All lists must include the following information:
o Player's full name
o Player's email address
o Club name (if applicable)
o Army list being used (For example: Tank Company)
o Book or website reference (For example: Overlord)
o Type of company (Tank, mechanized, infantry)
