Mission Overview
The same mission will be played for each round of the GT.

The Mission will be using battle points. 3 objectives worth 4 battle points each for a total of 12 battle
points.

All standard 40k mission rules are in effect (infiltrate, seize the initiative, random game length, etc.)

40K GT Mission: The mission is all three book missions played simultaneously, each mission is
an objective. There are 2 Capture and Control markers on 40mm bases, 3 Seize Ground markers on
25mm bases and Kill Points as objectives. Each objective is worth 4 battle points and tied objectives
worth 2 battle point.

Wipeout: If you manage to table your opponent you get 12 battle points

The Setup
Exchange army lists with opponent and explain units etc.
Discuss Terrain.
Roll off to see who deploys Seize Ground markers first. Winning player decides who places first or second. Whoever places the first marker will also place the 3rd marker and the other player will place the second marker. Seize Ground markers can be placed anywhere on the table at least 12” from table edge and 12” from each other.
Roll to see who chooses to go first or second.
Player going first places Capture and Control marker in their deployment zone and must be 12” away from a Seize ground Marker and vice versa.
Begin Game, Have fun.

Pairings
The first round will be random after that by similar battle points.

Allowed Armies
All, current codex's and White Dwarf armies (currently only Sisters of Battle) will be playable.

Forge World
Forge World will be allowed on a case by case basis. Must use actual Forge World model or approved conversion. No proxies allowed. (no Super heavies or Gargantuan Creatures)

WYSIWYG
All models are expected to be WYSIWYG as much as is reasonable. Proxies are not permitted. However, counts as armies are acceptable and encouraged. What’s the difference? That can be a tough call to make in some cases. Judges will determine what is acceptable or not and all judgments are final. If you feel your army is questionable, contact a TO in advance to clear any confusion.

Proxies: Using Necron Warriors as Lootas in an Ork army, etc.

Counts As: Using Ultra Marines colored models with Blood Angels rules. Using custom Adeptus Mechanicus converted models with Daemon rules. The key is that everything is easily identifiable and appropriately equipped.

What to bring
Your army.
A rule book, army book, and game aids such as dice, etc.
A copy of your list (Put name on list) for each opponent (6), judges, and yourself (8 total). You do not have to submit your list before the tournament. You are required to give each opponent a copy of your list before each game.
5 objective markers. Two of these must be on 40mm bases, the other 3 on 25mm bases.

@Reecius, Are we talking Ork on Wolf action here? The Epic struggle of wolves trying to hold their own vs the Green Hordes with the understand, dare I say, "Da Ork sEYEnce" of the POWER of RED Paint?

If that is what you are saying, I'M IN!

How do we get the Vegas odds makers involved in this rematch, anyone?

(legit thread-necronmanacy going on here)

I've looked into a few things and I have Qs for the locals:

Is that "Niban Japanese" restaurant any good ? (looks like an old McDonald's).

Is there a better place to grub down and (bitch/complain ) brag about how your day went. Like the Outback SteakHouse a couple miles west down Clairemont Mesa Blvd?

If Outback is good, then who's going there on Saturday night? Being an 'orphan' (that is, not a local) I'm hoping a few guys might join me there Saturday evening?


After all the killin' and butcherin' and ... ya know, mayhem, a good steak and dead sea animal (lobster) ought to go down good. With some suds.


Team No Comp?

Food within walking distance

Niban-decent japanese sushi and bento
Players- Good pub food and a place to get shots and beers (most will go here)
Mcdonalds- i wouldn't but, only for cheep drinks
Starbucks- it's starbucks
Soup Plantation - for the very hungry
Cotija's- expensive "quality" mexican street food
Lotia's taco Shop- decent taqeria- best carne asada fries
Subway- For the cheep sandwich

So there are alot of options.

For dinner I'd recommend the Asian restaurants off of convoy

Tajima's is my favorite noodle shop http://www.yelp.com/biz/tajima-noodle-house-san-diego
Then you can get dessert at yogurt world
http://www.yelp.com/biz/yogurt-world-san-diego

I just finished a marathon of terrain building to update the store's stock.



And here are the playable terrain trophies (they will be on tables and if you win you can keep as terrain or mount on wall etc)


shirts and water bottles just showed up for swag bags.




and don't forget that Table War is giving away units trays and some display trays.
