Any items which require opponents approval are prohibited. All forge world vehicles are legal only if there are rules for them from Games Workshop.

o What You See Is What You Get (WYSIWYG). If you wish to use an item, it must be represented on the figure. Army list choices whose models aren't available must be converted. If a reasonable person familiar with the game can not identify what your conversion is then do not use it. We dont want you showing up with something you cant use!
o Players may sign up to be part of a team. This sign up must be done before the tournament and any 3 players may form a team. The three player teams will compete for the team prize. The score of each team will be a combination of the overall scores of all three players.
o New Codexes or Army books - When a new Codex or Army book is published, you must use it if it comes out 1 month or more prior to the tournament. If the book comes out less than 1 month before the tournament, you can use either the new book or the exsiting book.

o Rhinox riders are usable only in the Ogre army.
o Allied contigents are not allowed.
o Special Characters are allowed if they are named characters published in your army's official codex.
o A comp system will be used. We feel this should be viewed as a handicap as not all armies were created equal. Players should not be discourage if their army is not a perfect comp army as that is very hard and creates fairly poor armies. Armies will be scored using the following checklist.
