Hey everyone, I'm looking at running a tournament for the first time early next year. So i was hoping to get some advice for it. It'll be at my FLGS in Cairns.

The idea I have for the tournament is an escalation style, where the first round is 200pt kill team and each round goes up in points until the final round is 1500pt. I understand that typically tournaments are around the 1850pt mark, but most of the people playing have only just got back into it (we're all coming across from WM/H).

I'd like it to be a learning experience for all involved, especially me as first time T.O.

Rules wise I was thinking:
Round 1:
Standard 200pt Kill Team Mission/Forces

Round 2:
500pt Detachment (must include Kill team)
Basic Kill each other mission

Round 3:
1000pts 1 detachment plus optional 1 detachment/formation
2 objectives (1 per side)

Round 4:
1500pts 1 detachment plus optional 1 detachment or 1-2 formations
5 objectives

I haven't read into the missions yet so they're just a starting point for what i'll be looking for - I'm open to recommendations. I'm also interested to know opinions on the inclusion of formations/additional detachments for this style of tournament. I read the thread on formations so i have some idea on what the majority think about them.

Is there any good Tournament resources available on the web? and is it worth bothering with Community Comp for this?
