Some remarks of a more domestic nature:
Remark: As you have 2 hours we expect ALL players to be able to play at least 5 of 6 turns. Should you think your opponent tries to delay the game, inform the judge in time (not at the end of the battle!). He will encourage your opponent to speed up his game and will keep an eye on the progress of the further battle. If still not 5 rounds are played in time, the judge can decide that at least a draw is awarded to the player that he considers is victim of the delaying tactic.
The tournament takes only one day in which 3 battles have to be played. The Swiss-system will be used: the adversary for the first battle is drawn randomly. We will take into account that players of the same club do not have to play each other in the first two rounds (and maybe even in the third). After each round a ranking will be made. According to this ranking players are matched for the following round taking into account that 2 players can not play each other twice.
At the start of each battle you will be placed at a random table with scenery. Apart for mystical forests and rivers one piece of scenery will have special rules. Take a little time with your opponent to discuss the scenery which can not be moved. Wood Elf players which use tree singing are expected to place the scenery back on the original position after the battle.
Every player must bring the following to the tournament:

The army list:
Army lists must be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org before March 20th at 23h59 and must be in on of the following formats: Word, Excel, HTML, PDF. You may use army builder to create your army but we kindly ask to save this as a HTML or PDF. Your list will be checked by the organisation who will confirm if it is correct or not. A list which is entered in time and correct will earn you 6 points. A corrected list entered in time still gives 3 points. If you are spotted using an army list other than the one sent to us, you will loose all battles with a massacre.
All battles are played according the battle line rules. Victory points are calculated as in the rulebook. Wood Elves use their special rules for these battles. The following 'house rules' also apply:
We decided that each point is important to win this tournament. Therefor the following table is used for awarding tournament points.
Difference VP TP Victory TP
If a player concedes a battle then his opponent will earn a massacre of 2000 points + points for any banners within in the conceding army. The player who concedes will get a 5 point deduction.
25 points can be earned in painting your army. These are awarded as followed:
3 judges will give their personal evaluation on your army. They can not debate amongst each other. Their points will be added and the 3 (or 4) best scoring armies will be asked to display their armies during the break between battle 2 and 3. All players may write the army on which they vote down on a paper. The army with the highest score gets the painting price. In case of a tie the points of the judges will be decide.
We hope to welcome you on March 24th!
