Please see http://www.worldwargames.co.uk for full event details.

The rules used will be the published version 2 of FOG together with the latest errata.

Competition Rules

Players must fully define their troops as they are placed on table.
Table size is 6' x 4' and players must supply their own terrain pieces. These must be to an acceptable standard, and the umpire will have the discretion to remove unsightly items. In addition all figures must be representative and painted and based to an acceptable standard.
Players must be present and ready to start the match at the appointed time. Where a player has a reasonable excuse for arriving late the match start will be delayed by up to 30 minutes, after which time the affected player will be awarded a bye and the late player 0 points. No player will be awarded more than one bye for any reason. A bye will carry 10 points for the duration of the tournament and will be adjusted at the end by inserting instead the average of the player’s real results, except that this may not be less than 10.
If a player resigns from a game at any stage after the first set up dice have been rolled their opponents will be awarded maximum points, and they will be awarded 0 points.

Time will be called after between 3 hours and 3 hours 15 mins playing time from the published start time. When time is called, play will continue until the end of the turn of the player who moved second, such that both players will have had an equal number of turns. Play will stop immediately before the joint action phase following this.

The draw will be made by team. An accelerated Swiss system will be used as follows:
1. All teams will be ranked according to their ELO scores as published on the official FOG ranking website as at 1st September 2015.
2. Teams will then be grouped into 2 equally-sized pools based on their aggregate ELO score, pool “A” containing the highest ranking teams, pool “B” the lowest.
3. In the first round, teams in pool A will be drawn against each other at random, teams in pool B likewise will be matched at random
4. In round 2, the winning teams from pool A games will be drawn against each other, the losing teams from pool B games will be drawn against each other. Losers from pool A games will be drawn against winners from pool B games.
5. Rounds 3 & 4 will revert to the normal Swiss system based on each team’s aggregate score.

Modifications to the above may be necessary depending on the number of teams entered.

Army List Format

Army lists should preferably be submitted by e-mail to the organiser, Marc Lunn (MLu120@aol.com) in excel AT LEAST 2 weeks before the date of the competition (so by 19th September please). Please do not send lists in with the competition entry. Anyone submitting a late list will be “outscouted” (for the first round only) and will deploy their entire army before their opponent, irrespective of the initiative roll. Once submitted, lists may not be amended except to correct errors identified by the list checker.

The list should clearly identify:

Participant name (plus e-mail address for communication) and Team
Army name and date
Pre-Battle Initiative Modifier
Geographical region, specific general, etc. where appropriate
Total Battle Groups
Army break point

For each battle group:

Order of March
Total number of bases
Full description of troops including type, armour, quality, training and POAs
Cost per base

Congratulations to Reigate on winning, but it doesn't matter too much as we came second and I was the only player to beat Graham Briggs, utterly embarrassing his 20 bases of heavily armoured knights by not letting any of them charge all game
