Best Coast Pairings (B.C.P.)
The event will use Best coast pairings to help organise the matches on the day and track your scores.
The app is free to download and to register for. Please make sure that one of your team has done this prior to the event and that the email you provide at registration matches the one on your Best Coast Pairings account.
FAQ’s that are answered will be in effect as soon as they are released to ensure that there are no issues with the new 10th edition ruleset.
Your army list must cost no more than 1000 points and as stated above use the most up to date points costs for every unit in your army.
To create your army, each player will muster a 1000pt list, with any scaleable army rules set for a battle at this size. You will then combine your list with your partner and CP will be shared between you.
If you are both taking the same faction, any abilities triggered by keywords will apply to both players. However, if for example you are both taking Space Marines, you will get 1 oath of moment to allocate.
Further clarification on how lists will combine and function will be issued prior to the event.
Your army list must also list your faction, sub faction and your warlord. This means that any enhancements bought before the battle must be listed and will be in play for the entirety of the event.
Please see the Legends rules, any model on these lists will not be allowed at the event as they are no longer balanced for competitive play!
We are not asking you to submit your lists in advance but please bring 3 copies of your list one to hand to the TO one for yourself and one so your opponent can view your list.

Playing on the day
There will be 3 games, each using a set deployment and mission taken from the Leviathan Missions deck. These will be advised prior to the first game of the day in the briefing, and the briefing before each mission.
Players are expected to be at their table on time for the round to begin, if a player is more than 15 mins late they’ll suffer a loss for that game and their opponent will get a 100-0 win.
To keep things moving to a schedule no battle round will be started unless both players feel that it can be finished. At this point to enable the game to get to 5 turns played then the players should talk through the turns to see how the game would have reached its natural conclusion. At this point please call a judge over to oversee this to ensure that fair play is being upheld. As this can cause issues it’s up to both players to ensure that they are doing their best to keep the tempo of the game up so that this step isn’t necessary.
If players would like to, chess clocks can be used - please bring your own or download an app to carry out this function. If you’re using a clock then prior to deployment decide who of the 2 players will be the clock master. That person should be the only person that touches the clock to ensure that there is no possible risk of contamination. Please use your heads here and make sure that fair
play is carried out.
There are 2 hours and 30 mins allocated for each game, this should be sufficient.
After the game has finished players should submit their scores via the BCP app, if anyone has an issue when submitting their scores please speak to a judge for assistance. Once submitted scores are final and so please ensure that you’ve counted all of the points correctly. In the event of any disparity in the scores please contact a judge at the earliest opportunity.
The rounds will need to end promptly, any games going over the time limit will be visited by a judge to ensure that things come to a close in a timely fashion.
The Tables
All games will be played on 60''x44'' tables with pre set terrain.
All of the terrain rules from the main Warhammer 40’000 rulebook will be in effect. Players should discuss the board and the terrain that makes it up prior to deployment as described in the pre-game sequencing later in this pack. If there’s any confusion or disagreement between the players then please seek help from a judge.
Painting requirements
To qualify for the 10 points per game for painting, ALL models should be painted to a reasonable tabletop standard. Ability isn’t being assessed here - only effort. You don’t need to be the best painter in the world but you do need to have tried. This means that models should have a “Three colour minimum” and a finished base, applied in a cohesive format across the entire army.
