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 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

Note that this save does NOT stack with any other Ward Save they have.

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
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.
