  • 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.
  • Clash of Kings 2020 will not be used, as it's coming out the week beforehand. Your lists will already be turned in!

Rules for the Army Lists:

  • Up to 25% allies will be allowed, however allies may not take a magical item.
  • Legendary characters will be allowed.
  • Lists are due no later than October 23rd. Late lists will result in a loss of Santa Anna points.

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.
  • You can use unlocks in your 1995 list to unlock choices in your 505 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.
  • The reserve cannot modify existing units in your main list, including changing their size or adding/removing items.
  • You can take up to 25 points out of your 1995 list and use it in your 505 list. This means you can run as low as 1970 points on Saturday, and have up to 530 points for your reserve.

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...


The Alamo will follow the standard rules for line of sight and terrain, as defined in the Kings of War Version 3 rulebook, and any FAQs.
