Other Rules

This is a CLOSED LIST tournament for the games, but players must provide a copy of their army list to their opponents at the end of each game.  All units must be disclosed to your opponent at the start of the game.  However, spells and artifacts do not have to be disclosed until they would come into play during the games.

Models used may be from any product line or manufacturer.

All of the models used MUST be appropriate models for the units they are representing.  If models are used as proxies, they must be easily recognized as the unit they are representing by your opponent or they will not be allowed.

Any model that will be used in the tournament MUST be placed on display for appearance score judging.

An additional appearance award will be awarded to the army with the best appearance score who’s army consists of at least 75% of Mantic models.

Please use base sizes that are appropriate for the unit the model(s) are representing.  If a larger base must be used due to a dramatic model, use the Arc of Sight rules for the model or unit found on page 70 of the hard cover rule book which covers how to handle Arc of Sight in these situations.

If using dramatic basing for units, a unit is still required to have 50% plus 1 of the models on the movement base or tray for the unit it should be representing.




All terrain is preset with rules specific to each individual table. Players will be expected to leave the terrain in the same place and condition as they found it upon departing from their game.



All games will be played using the rules for the “Kill!” scenario found on page 85 of the hardcover Kings of War Basic Rulebook with the following exceptions:


Each unit is assigned a value called Control Strength based on the following chart which will be used to control objectives and terrain for additional victory points.


0 – Individuals, War Engines

1 - Troops, Monsters, Heroes which aren't Individual, Units with Height 0, Skirmishers, Knight Champion

2 – Regiments

3 – Hordes, Legions



            - Victory Points will be awarded for each piece of terrain a player controls. To control a piece of terrain a player must have a unit with Control Strength within 3” of the terrain. If both players have units which add up to the same amount of Control Strength within 3” of the same piece of terrain, the terrain is contested and no points are awarded.  Terrain on the battlefield is worth varying amounts of victory points ranging from 25 points to 300 points based on the level of importance of controlling the objectives within each of the game tables.  These victory points will be displayed on each of the tables.


            - Additional Victory Points may be awarded based on specific scenario conditions unique to the terrain table you are playing at.  A display plaque will be placed at each table outlining the rules for the table including the deployment zone that should be used.


Army Command cards will be used.

                        - Each player will be given 5 scenario cards at the start of the tournament.

                                    - Players will also receive 3 Objective Markers

                        - Each scenario card may only be used once for the entire tournament.

                        - Army Command cards are revealed by opponents at the same time.

                        - Army Command cards are revealed prior to deployment.

                        - Additional Victory points are awarded based on the commands.

            When an Army Command card is revealed, the objectives apply to BOTH players.


Tournament points will be awarded as follows based on Victory Points scored:

Scoring breaks down as follows:

  • Battle Points - up to 10 points per game. 50 points maximum for the tournament.
    Each game’s victory points will award you between 1-10 tournament points.
  • Sportsmanship Points - up to 25 points maximum for the tournament.
    1. Receive 1 point for showing up to each game on time, prepared to play.
    2. Receive 1 point for each time you turn your score sheet in by the end of the round.

  • Appearance Points - up to 25 points maximum for the tournament.
    Self-judging checklist for players for up to 17 possible points
    To maximize these points, armies should be painted to a 3 color minimum standard, have a consistent basing scheme, have matching movement trays, have a matching display board with their name plaque, consistent army painting scheme, models highlighted and shaded, as well as models converted.
    Judges will double check self-scoring and award up to 8 additional points.
