Army Composition:

500 point limit.

There is only a single restriction: you may not have MORE than 55 models.

All armies will be made using the rules found on page 100 of the rulebook under "choosing an army." All warbands must be made from the most up to date sourcebook of your particular faction. Allies are allowed.

However, all lists must be submitted by the 7th of June for checking. All lists must be sent to 40kwarzone@g

If your list is on time, you will be awarded 3 bonus points.


Theme: Lists that are comprised of a single faction will be awarded THREE bonus points prior to the start of game 1. These points will only contribute to the overall score. They will not reflect upon your battle points for the purposes of match-ups. "Single faction" is defined as a force solely drawn from individual armies. For example, an entire force comprised only of units from Minas Tirith or Mirkwood etc. You MUST have sent in your list by the deadline to receive these points.


You MUST nominate your leader upon your army list. You will use the same Leader the entire tournament.


Terrain Bonus:
Any player who brings a piece of terrain suitable to The Hobbit will be awarded a single bonus point! This terrain will be preset by tournament organizers so please write your name on it.

Battle Missions:

All missions will be played as per The Hobbit Rulebook. Please read pages 104- 109 to familiarise yourself with the missions. Ignore the "Layout" section of the mission rules. All games will be played on a 4x4 gaming board. All terrain, including that contributed by players, will be preset by the tournament organisers before round 1 begins.

Round 4 - TO THE DEATH!

Bonus Points:

Head-Hunter: Your leader delt the final wound to the enemy leader. This may also apply to shooting. For instance, Vrasku may be your leader, and if deals the final wound to the enemy leader he will award you this bonus point.

Ambush: If a player is able to deal five unsaved wounds upon their opponents models, before losing their first, they will be awarded an extra battle point for that game. For example, Tom has priority, charges and wins the first five fights. In the process, he deals five wounds. He is yet to lose any, so is awarded an extra battle point. This victory condition lasts only until both players have lost a wound, after that the point cannot be gained by either side. This is a multiple award, if you manage to kill ten models, before losing your first, you are awarded a total of two extra battle points for that game - and so on (up to a maximum of 4).

Fate of Heroes: If, by the end of the game, you have NOT used any of your models Fate points in any way or form, you will be awarded an extra battle point for that game.
