Rules

Army Lists: 1,995 points
Reserve force: 505 points

  • All models must represent what they are supposed to be according to the rules they are being used under, and what you see should be what you get.
  • Miniatures need not be produced by any particular corporation.
  • Miniatures do not need to be painted, but every miniature needs to be fully assembled with all of the appropriate pieces and properly based.
    (Remember that painting will be judged and contribute to the overall score)
  • Units must meet the minimum number of models as specified in the Kings of War rulebook.
    Units under the recommended number of models may take a slight paint penalty, unless done in conformance to the Rule of Cool.

Rules for the Reserve Army Lists:

  • Two scenarios this year will use a 505 point "reserve" list.
  • The reserve plus your full list must be a legal 2500 list.
  • If you already have open character/monster/war machine choices in your main list, you can fill them from the reserve list.
  • The reserve must be from the same list as your army, or combined from your army list and any allied list already used.
  • This list may include new allies, if your 1995 army did not already include allies
  • You cannot take points away or upgrade units in the main list to fit them into the Reserves; they must be 500 points on their own

A note on lists:


Any cheesy dork planning to bring a beardy tooled up army should think twice. Anyone who does this will be exposed as the punk he is (all in good fun of course). The tournament organizers reserve the right to disallow any army list that is deemed to be terribly unsporting but unless an army list makes us throw up a little in our mouths when we read it, if it's legal, it's getting in the door. (Some people just stopped reading, so they will miss the important part)

But that does NOT mean that your army list is "APPROVED".
It just didn't make us physically ill. Those are not the same things.

No one is required to like playing against it, or to like you for bringing it. If you bring the pain, keep your gob shut when people cast their bad game votes accordingly...

Terrain

The Alamo will follow the standard rules for line of sight and terrain, as defined in the Kings of War Version 2 rulebook, the Clash of Kings 2018 book, and any FAQs.
Hills will follow the Kings of War rules, not Kings of War Historical rules.
