OMG what is this craziness?
Dauthus 2016 – now with a $25,000 prize pool - 10 huge painted armies to win.

What is it exactly?
Warhammer 40000 Tournament

When? I am so going!
Saturday 20th and Sunday 21st February 2016

How big is it?
1850 Points – 100 player maximum (that’s what she said)

What is the scoring breakdown?
75% Battle, 10% Sports, 10% Paint/Theme/Presentation, 5% Organisation (is your ###### together? – dice, templates, codexes, cards etc)

What kind of missions?
Almost exactly the same as the ATC, Primary Mission, Malestrom, Kill Points, 5 Games

How much cheese?
Max of 10 Paddlepops in the Community Comp System

I only play on good terrain.
Yep, all seventh edition custom terrain by Apples, remember the black tables from Terracon?

It had better be close to town?
Held at the German Club, 223 Flinders St, Adelaide

OMG in Radelaide?
Yes, at the same place as the Adelaide ATC, awesome venue

Can I stay at Ponyboy’s place?
Yes, or any other friendly Adelaidian’s house, mine included (Mexicans are very welcome)

What can I win?
One in ten players wins a fully painted army (somewhere between 1500 and 5000 points)

How much does it cost?
Entry fee is $120 (######, that is a seriously good investment)

I get hungry.
Catering provided by the German Club (at participants own expense)

I also like to drink a lot...
Drinks are fantastic value at the venue, the bar is open from 11am

What armies can I win? Eldar x 2, Tau, Blood Angels, Dark Angels, Dark Eldar, Tyranids, Chaos Deamons, Imperial Knights and Dark Elves

Who painted these armies?
Apples, AKA zero, AKA Chris Appleby

Why on earth would he do that?
I am trying to raise $7000 for my son, (Caleb’s) school trip to Vietnam (through World Challenge). I also want to clear out my collection and start again.

Crazy, tell me more about prizes!

First Place Overall
First choice of the above armies (Please love my Eldar army, no one will love you)

Best Army/Theme/Presentation
Second choice of the above armies (Seriously, you don’t make friends with Eldar, don’t do it)

First Random Door Prize
Third choice of the above armies (only the first 50 paid up are eligible for this prize – to encourage early sign up, so I can cover the venue deposit)

Second Place Overall
Fourth choice of the above armies (The Tom Damin Bridesmaid Award)

Best Sports Type Dude
Fifth choice of the above armies (Everyone who gets over 8 Sports and all 5 of the Organisation points goes in the random draw)

Third Place Overall
Sixth choice of the above armies (If only my Dreadnaught didn’t roll a one)

Second Random Door Prize
Seventh choice of the above armies (You lucky git)

Third Random Door Prize
Eighth choice of the above armies (Totally worth $120 and the anal rape)

Worst General
Ninth choice of the above armies (The Chris Berkin Award for Outstanding Achievements in the field of Mediocrity) This will be hotly contested, dice off in case of draw, most 1s wins.

Best General
Tenth choice of the above armies (you gamey cheesy ######, have a Fantasy army, and go play Rage of Sigmar)

What’s the fine print?
I am only giving away one army per ten players, so if only 50 people sign up, there are only 5 armies on offer, but the choice will be from the 10.

More detail on the Armies
These are rough WYSIWYG costs of all the models in each army, I am working on much more accurate Battlescribe lists for each, ask and I will send them to you.
Plus I will likely add a few items as I use the armies between now and the tournament.
They will also come with all of the bits and obsolete models that I have for each army.
There may be a very small percentage of models that are not painted in some armies.
If I get bored, I may total up the retail value of each army, just for interests sakes.
Winners of armies can, of course, do whatever they want with them, sell swap, split up or even ritual immolation.
I will post photos of each army as I get to them.

Eldar – 3500 points
Eldar – 3500 points
Tyranids – 4500 points
Blood Angels – 4000 points
Dark Eldar – 4000 points
Tau – 3000 points
Dark Angels – 2500 points (if Ronny Dreyer sells it to me, otherwise Imperial Guard)
Deamons – 2000 points
Imperial Knights – 1500 points (I have yet to buy and paint the Knights)
Dark Elves – 5000 points

More detail on the Missions:
Almost exactly as per the ATC 2015 – Scoring will be all of the 5 Eternal War objective missions (with First Blood, Slay the Warlord and Line Breaker as usual) primary, Malestrom secondary (Always 3 cards, only 2 can be scored each turn) and Kill Points tertiary.
Deployment will be standard rulebook deployment (3 x Dawn of War, 1 x Vanguard Strike and 1 x Hammer and Anvil).
Scoring will be total VP with 0-20 scoring on the VP differential chart (with 20 points for a wipe).

Shut up and take my money
Secure you place by early payment, this will sell out: Full refunds will be given if you can’t go for any reason – no refund for last minute withdrawal or no shows.
Only the first 50 to pay are eligible for the first random draw prize, so sign up quick.
$120 Entry fee secures your spot.

Paid up list:
Remember, only the first 50 are eligible for the first random prize draw (3rd choice of the huge armies).

Jeremy Martino
Tim Skrenya

Thanks for early payment guys - This means I can immediately purchase first Imperial Knight!

Josh Pope has just given me 3 Imperial Sectors, rather cheaply, so there will be plenty of GW ruins to cover 50 tables.
