Materials Needed to participate

Each player is required to bring 7 Printed (Not handwritten) copies of their army list (One for the judges at Saturday's Registration and one for each opponent after your games) - The game room does have a printer, although they will charge you per the sheet!

You are required to bring your own materials needed to play - Dice, Markers, Spell cards, Rule Books, ect....

We just wanted to take a moment to stress that each player should bring everything they need to play. This means if you need materials - you should bring them. Tournament Organizers will not be providing any.

Army Restrictions and Requirements

- No army fielded during deployment may be more than 4500 points

- Armies "will not"  be required to a minimum of 3 colors to play, but for paint, the entire army will be judged if it is not painted it will suffer in its paint score which does count towards the overall score. (Black on your bases doesn't count as a color)

- WYSIWYG - No Specific model line is required and conversions/other product lines are very encouraged. That being said - All Models must make sense! (A unit of Crossbows should not be proxied for great weapons).

- You Must indicate which lore each wizard will be using for the entire tournament in your list.  In the event your wizard somehow can have spells from multiple lores, you must note each lore available to be chosen in your army list and tell your opponent at the beginning of the game which you have chosen. 

- There will be no "Comp Score" for this event.

- While there is no "Comp Score" for this event, keep in mind that blatantly abusive lists could be rejected by Tournament organizers upon submission.  (9th Age has fixed "Almost" all abusive issues, but there are still a few out there). This is for the sake of trying to provide all a fun and challenging event. If you have questions, please submit your to darksidiuos@gmail.com early for review.

- We will be using The 9th Age rules and all current army lists released prior to Apr 23rd. No optional rules or experimental rules will be allowed.
