Hero for a Day - Event rules pack

Greetings all - well yesterday I promised you an update, and here it is!

I'm going to try and keep this as brief as possible, but if you have any questions, please leave a comment at the bottom of the post and I'll respond and if necessary edit the post.

Games to be played

There will be two games played of each of the following game types throughout the day, so 8 games in total. You don't have to keep the same list for each of the game types if you don't want to, but of course it will make list writing simpler.

Singles - 1850pt armies.

Doubles - 800pts per player

Handicap - These games will pitch a single player against a team of two players. 1250pts for the single players, 875pts for the doubles players

Kill Team - 200pts using the standard GW kill team rules (available as a digital download)

Army selection restrictions

I don't plan on limiting army selection too much here, instead each team has a captain and I would ask you to confirm your lists with them - they both know the sort of event I'm looking to hold and will ensure none of the armies are over the top filthy.

That being said, I am imposing the following limitations, which I believe will help to limit some of the worst cheese offenders.

Superheavies/Gargantuan creatures - These are limited to a maximum of 1 per army (including a maximum of 1 per doubles team). See also the following point regarding forgeworld.

Forgeworld - These are limited to 1 FW unit per army. You may not include a forgeworld unit if you are taking a superheavy/gargantuan and vice versa.

Allies - Each player's army must be formed from a single faction with one exception - codices without a superheavy/garganutan choice within them may take an oathsworn/forsworn detachment at their normal level of alliance to the primary detachment. This detachment can only contain a single knight as per the restriction above. Doubles armies may contain two different factions but each player in the team must have an army that complies with the above restrictions.

Games will run to the following schedule:

Friday 19th August 11pm - registration opens - this gives us an hour to get everyone ready, registered and assigned to their tables. I appreciate this is a little longer than would normally be the case, however given the team nature of the event I think it's necessary to allow the captains to meet their teams in person if they don't already know everyone and get organised.
