PAINTING REQUIREMENT - 50% of your models must be painted to a 3 colour minimum. In addition, for this tournament your warlord MUST be one of the painted models! There will be a painting score assigned to your warlord (judged by your opponent) so make them pretty
List building limited to up to two detachments only. No Titanic units allowed and no primarchs (as much fun as Mortarian vs. Yarrick might seem in your head - it's not so fun on the table!). If you're a tau player and want to bring the 8 - fair game! (as they're technically a lord of war slot for some strange reason)
You MUST include as your warlord a named SPECIAL CHARACTER from your relevant army book. It is their great crusade! So it’s about this character’s personal retinue of awesome they are bringing along for their personal crusade. (ie: if you play tyranids you’re going to have to include either deathleaper, Old one eye, or the swarmlord in your list and they must be your warlord)
If your codex is one of the two currently with no named special characters, the following may be used (only ONE per army however - it's still their great crusade!):
Harlequins: the solitare
Genestealer Cult: the patriarch
There will be 4 90-minute games and one special throw down between warlords!

I think I am going to not give in to peer pressure, this year, and do the smart thing and take a step back from the event, instead of having an "anxiety episode" and walk out of the event half-way through the day.
