MOBICON 2016 40k Tournament Update

Mobicon Primer 2016 U.1

So I received some feedback regarding the 40K Primer after its release. Based on that feedback I turned my inner squirrel loose and came up with this update. While it doesn’t necessarily solve all the issues that have been brought up, it should shake things up just enough to keep them interesting.

This will be the Primer that will be play tested at the Pre-Event in April as well. There should be plenty of time to retool or re-tailor lists for this event.

Good luck, have fun and if you have questions please send them to Games@SAWG.net

Updated Rules For Warhammer Fantasy at Mobicon 2015

Things you need to Bring:
Yourself
4 Copies of your Army List (1 for each Opponents and 1 for Judges
Dice
Measuring tape
Templates
and a great Attitude

General Rules
Special Characters are allowed

All models must represent what they are supposed to be according to the rules they are being used under. WYSIWYG is the rule (What you see is what you get). However, miniatures need not be produced by any particular corporation.
Miniatures do not need to be painted, but every miniature needs to be fully assembled with all of the appropriate pieces and properly based. (Remember that painting will be judged and contribute to the overall score)

Army Lists: 2,000 points
Warhammer 8th Edition rules and all GW 8th edition FAQ’s will be used, with the exceptions that buildings may only be occupied by units of 40 models or less. In addition, The end Time Rules will not be used, save the Lord/ Heroes up to 50%. Beastmen armies will be able to give Marks of the chaos gods, but must bring a copy of the rules for them. No Other Units or Character can be Used from End Times.

Warhammer 9th Edition rules will ONLY be used if they are released prior to 1 April 2015. Otherwise, the organizers just won’t have enough time to assimilate them prior to the event.
Lists are to be no larger than 2,000 points using the standard restrictions found in each Warhammer Armies book.

Chaos Dwarf armies use the Legion of Azgorh, . No other Tamurkhan units are in effect.

Bretonnian Battle Standard Bearers are allowed to take any mundane equipment that would be available to them if they were not a BSB, such as a shield or a lance.

Forgeworld Models and characters are allowed, as long as the player brings a printed copy of the rules to the tournament.

1 Terrain
1 The Mysterious Terrain charts will not be used, however every table will have one piece of Mysterious Terrain, such as a Wildwood or Temple of Skulls, clearly identified for what it is. These terrain pieces will be fixed, while every other element of terrain on the table will be placed by the players.
2 All hills will be treated as 9 inches tall. If you have models shorter than nine inches, they can hide behind them.
3 Buildings can hold a maximum of thirty models. If both players agree, buildings may instead be treated as impassible terrain (though Mysterious Buildings will still get their special rules).
4 Except for the Mysterious Terrain element on the table, whose location will be specified by each scenario, players will place the terrain before each game.
5 Wood elves are allowed to chose what type of woods they have at the beginning of the tournament and must remain the same throughout
2

1 Other Rules Quirks
1 Hero and Lord choices (and only Hero and Lord choices) may use the ward save provided by Magic Resistance (and only the MR save) against the following spells that do not otherwise allow saves: Pit of Shades, the Dwellers Below, Purple Sun of Xereus, Final Transmutation, and the Dreaded Thirteenth Spell. Note that this save does NOT stack with any other Ward Save they have.

Scoring at the Mobicon will focus on four elements of play in order to determine who goes home with the prizes. Every player will be scored on the basis of their ability to play the game, play a fun game, paint their army, and follow the rules of the tournament.
Players can score a maximum of 165 points, broken down as follows:
Battle Points 75
Sportsmanship points 30
Painting Points 30

The Awards will be the Following:

Best Overall – this will be a combination of all the scores in one place.

Best Sportsman – Total Sportsmanship points and Player Choices

Best General – Total Battle points (ties Broken by Sportsmanship)

Best Painted – Total Painting score (Ties Broken with Sportsmanship)

Player’s Choice – Best army as Voted on by the Players.

Battle Points (15-75)
Every participant will be able to earn a maximum of 20 Battle points per game:
Win 20
Loss 5
Tie 10
In every game played at the Mobicon, one needs to beat their opponent by 100+ victory points as defined in normal victory conditions specified in the main rule book in order to win a game. In addition to winning each game, players will be able to score up to an additional 4 battle points by achieving the objective defined in the scenario. Only one player will be able to achieve the objective in each game.

The five additional Battle Points are:
1. Kill the army’s General
2. Kill The Battle Standard Bearer
3. Control the Most Highest Ground
4. Control the Mystical Terrain
5. Killing the Largest Unit

Sports (0-60)
Sportsmanship is about having a good game. There are a thousand things that can make a game good or bad, and no one can list them all. It is very hard to determine how good or how bad a game was. It’s very subjective and different to everyone. However, it is easy to tell if a game was good or bad and pretty much everyone can agree on it, so for the Mobicon, sportsmanship will focus on if the game was good or bad.

each game shall offer the player to get up to 10 points for Sportsmanship as decided by their opponent. An additional 10 Points will be awarded by each time the player is listed as a favorite opponent.

Paint scoring (0-20)—One judge, One Check list, every army scored between games. No one will have judges looking over their shoulder during a game or going through dead pile to score their painting. You put a big effort in painting your army so we will make the same effort in scoring it. To help us do that, we ask that you please leave your army set up between games. It’s hard to try to give 20 armies the time they all deserve if the only time they’re out there is during games! Also, nobody wants to play games with a judge looking over your shoulder.
