Age of Sigmar Casual

  • Each player’s army will be a Battlehost force, a 2000 point list, using the rules and restrictions provided in the Pitched Battle section from the 2021 General’s Handbook.

  • Any kind of ability you can choose before the game must be chosen before the event and recorded on your army roster clearly.  These choices are made for the entire tournament, and cannot be changed during the event.
  • Any models in the Legends category will not be allowed at this event.
  • Models must be on round bases, please use the base size suggestions provided by GW in the CORE RULES & BASE SIZES.  Base sizes can give you an undue advantage in gameplay, so please use the suggested bases.
  • Each player must bring two (2) copies of their army lists to the event. These army lists should be printed and not handwritten, sometimes tech goes bad. You must also have a set of all the units stats and rules you are using for you and your opponents to refer to during the game.
  • Your army must be fully painted and based to a 3-color pulse standard. Models that do not reach this level will be pulled from the table as a casualty. Gee the GHB 2021 for standards. 
  • All models must be WYSIWYG, Hammers are hammers, Swords are swords etc. Any kind of proxy models will not be ok, but reasonable ‘counts as’ models or conversions may be. (Please email the TO pictures of the model and what it is supposed to be.)

An army painting Rubric will be used to grade your army. The rubric must be filled out and placed next to your army on Friday if you want it judged. The front of the form is for you to fill out, the back is ours. Armies that hit a certain score will be set aside on Saturday for a final judging.
