Warhammer 40K “Battle for the Abyss” Tournament

Warhammer 40K “Battle for the Abyss” Tournament

Alright gentlemen, the time has come for the Battle for the Abyss, to see who will come out victorious in this Apocalyptic Tournament.

This tournament will be by ITC rules and games by Combined Arms Detachment with one game by Champion Rules. I will post a link for everyone to be able to read the rules and game styles. I am going to alter, well change one rule for this tournament. Terrain and Cover saves. This will be simple and easy so that way there will be NO FIGHTING OR ARGUING OR CONFUSION!!!!!! This will be MY only rule that I will change. *If you can’t see a model, you can’t shoot at it. And if you have a “window”……THAT DOES NOT COUNT! SO basically you CAN shoot in and out of ruins, but CANNOT SHOOT THROUGH RUINS.*

Each persons army will consist of a Battalion Detachment MINIMIUM. NO BLOB ARMIES ARE PERMITTED. Now because every table will be putting down 10K, there will a time limit per turn. Now to determine as to which side gets first turn, this will be the fun part….hahahaha. The team that deploys their army THE FASTEST will get first turn. BUT just so there is no “Our whole army is in the teleportatrium”, only half of your army will be allowed to deep strike. And you can’t just toss your army onto the table and say “there im deployed”. So both teams will be deploying their armies AT THE SAME TIME, and this will be ALSO be on a time limit. Once the time is up, what ever is NOT on the table OR in reserves will be considered as destroyed in the warp.

Your armies must be 3 colour minimum, if your army is not fully painted then that will be ok as long as your army looks like it has been worked on and been given some of your loving touch. There will no judging or points awarded on painting this first tournament.

Now the big part of this tournament, Army compatibility with your teammate. Your armies will need to be able to share the same faction keyword, Imperium, Chaos, Aeldari, and Xenos. Xenos will will consist of Orks, Necrons, Tau, and Tyranids. Because these armies are more of a “stand alone” type I’m allowing them to be able to partner up. So if you and your partners armies share the same KEYWORD (CHAOS), then you both benefit from the KEYWORD. That also includes buffs from characters and/or psychic buffs, yes you can give your partners HQ …*special toughness, or invul save or what have you* (oh wait I have no idea what other buffs there are for the other armies as all i know are my DG, and they are all that matters anyways. Pappa Nurgle for the Win!….lol). The unique character rule is also in play, “Only one of this model can be played”, no doubles of the same characters are permitted. Lords of War and FW models will be permitted for the battle, NO MORE THAN 30 WOUNDS!!!!!!!

As a final note to everyone, I will be holding this event as an annual event and will be needing some volunteers. If anyone would like to give Cam and myself a hand with things we would really appreciate it. Ben is going to make some very cool medals for the tournament winners, but they won’t be released for viewing till the day of the event. If you have any questions please feel free to message me. Once you have a partner and ready message me WHO your partner is and what armies you each will be playing.
