Players should contact Anthony Burger if they plan on attending. An event posting will be on the HMGS-GL facebook page as well as the Battle Rankings forums to track who has registered and payed. Players should let the TO know they are attending.
There will be a reserve list if more than 14 people sign up. Players should let Anthony Burger know if they are dropping or can’t play asap, so reserve players can be notified.
If we have an odd number I (Anthony Burger) or a sub will play. If more than 10 players and an odd number, a player will have the option to drop and be repaid in full.

Players should bring 3 identical physical copies of their list. Digital supplements/lists on tablets are welcome but physical lists are required. Players should print off their lists before arriving. Players will use the same list for the entire tournament. Players should email their list to Anthony Burger (elburgo_1850@outlook.com) by March 29th at 11:59pm to be reviewed for an extra sportsmanship point.

Players must also bring a copy of:
• The Flames of War V4 Rulebook (mini or standard size)
• Forces book their list came from (multiple if using more than one nation)
• 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 (For example a Tiger I needs to be a Tiger 1, it cannot stand in for a Tiger 2, exceptions are noted below). 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. The link for the mission packet is below. Players can select a single stance (Attack, Maneuver, Defend) twice per tournament. If one or both players during a mission have previously played a mission, reroll the mission selection. Tokens will be provided to indicate choice.

Any questions should go to Anthony Burger, elburgo_1850@outlook.com

The results of the tournament will be posted to Battlerankings.com. Note that results posted to Battlerankings may be different from tournament standing, as the former emphasis gameplay score.
See the Facebook page Columbus Area Flames of War,Battlerankings.com, and the Flames of War forum for additional details.
Any arguments or rule questions should be attempted to be resolved by first checking the rulebook, the players should then refer to the tournament organizer(s) (Anthony Burger).

Players will be scored 3 ways:
Gameplay: Wins, as determined by victory conditions, wins be scored as 9 points, ties as 6 points, losses as 3 points. This is something I’m testing.

Painting/Hobby: This will be according to the looks at aesthetic according to peers and judges. A display board is not required and will not be scored but is useful for carrying models. At the end of the second round, players should leave their armies out to be judged by both official painting judges and peers. Official judging will be done by Anthony Burger and one other person who doesn’t play Flames of War. Max points 7.
Painting/Hobby points will be awarded as follows:
100% of army painted and 100% of army based (1 point).
A coherent color and basing scheme is used in army (exception for aerial units and units of a different nation) (1 point).
Army is highlighted and shaded (at least 50% of army) (1 point).
Army has decals or other iconography and/or custom basing (at least 50% of army) (1 point)
Army has a name and unit history. Players should have a name and least a paragraph about their force. (1 point).
Players pick. Players will write down which army they think looks the best. The army with the most votes will get 2 points. (2 points). In the case of ties, each player(s) get a point.

Sportsmanship: At the end of the tournament each player writes down on a piece of paper their name and their 3 opponents based on how enjoyable the game was. Players can distribute up to 6 points, in increments of 2,1,0. A point will be added by the tournament organizer submitting their list early. Max points 7.

There will be awards for best general, hobbyist, sport, and overall (the highest scoring of all 3 categories combined. Ties in each category will be broken first by general, then hobby, then sport. Prize support will be based on the number of attendees.
