Games workshop miniature table top gaming tournaments UK South west

Our Winter 40K tides event was a brilliant success and we are looking forward to seeing you all at this event. There has been a slight price increase to £12.50 for these events.

After feed back I have altered scoring based around tabling your opponent as well as allowing your opponent to concede rather than be farmed for VP’s.
I have also introduced a ruling on slow play so please make yourself familiar with the new rules below.

Spring tides will be still be giving extra points for fluff (at least one paragraph about your force) e-mailed to big@bristolindependentgaming.co.uk (no points will be rewarded if the fluff is not in before the event, deadline is midnight on Saturday 21st April). Please write Spring Fluff and your name in the subject line!

We will also still be giving points for painting ( 4TP’s if all of the models in your force are painted and based)

This event will be 3 1500pt games over the course of the day.

Any Beta Test rules will be in use.
We will be using the Chapter Approved match play points and new stratagems.
All forces must be bound.
NO named characters !
All forces must be selected from the Index books or Codices (Forge World is welcome if you have the relevent index).
Missions will be Maelstrom and you will be told on the day which missions are being played.
All of the matched play rules will be in effect (see pg212/215 of the main rule book).
Games will be played on 6×4 tables with 2.5hrs given per round.
Scoring will be 3pts for a Win 1pt for a draw and 0pts for a loss. Please record all of points scored in game as these will be used to determine the placing in the event of several players being on the same amount of wins.
If you table your opponent you will score 3TP’s and 10VP’s regardless of VP’s scored.
You may concede if you have less than 6 models remaining on the table your opponent will score as if a tabling was achieved ( 3TP’s and 10VP’s ) you will score 0TP’s and no more than 5VP’s (if you have scored more than 5 VP’s at the time of conceding these are lost)
Slow play: There will be space for recording the round number on your score sheet if I see that you are failing to complete at least 4 rounds in more than one game I shall award your opponents a tabling in the round they played you regardless of scores at dice down.

Cost will be £12.50 Payable via Paypal to:
