- Default of up to 3000 points per player, but up to 4000 provided you're including at least 500 points in superheavies/gargantuans.
- Titan-class superheavies and gargantuans (above 9 HP/wounds) must be declared in advance and will be subject to special balancing; let us know ASAP if you want to bring any.

Models must be at least base coated---no bare plastic or black/white/grey primer. It's been really good the past couple years having mostly painted models on the table. For the couple holdouts that don't play 40k much at the moment but want to play and have a lot of unpainted models, get in touch. We can do something like quickly airbrushing them to at least block out the basic colors.
Joe forgot one other army construction rule:

"Your army must be constructed in such a way that if Lovell is on the opposing team, you have the ability to focus all of your efforts on crushing him on the first turn! Please note that this will not work, and although it will ensure his immediate wrath and anger, we hope over a 5-10 year period to demoralize him to negate some of his in-born tactical advantage of superior strategic intellect. Also note, this applies REGARDLESS of which army he brings. Organizers will make every effort to try to get him to focus to allow predictability, however these efforts have not been successful as of yet due to his severe gaming ADHD and his refusal to take his meds."

I'm searching through old post to find the one where this rule was originally presented and will copy it when I find it
Unfortunately, you would start the game with one less close combat attack, because...............you sprained your arm "patting yourself on the back" :mrgreen:

THIS JUST IN! The Kingbreakers have been pardoned of their minor xenos transgression by the Inquisition. I cannot confirm nor deny that this is due to the resurgence of a new and mediocre threat from the Iron Warriors.

My Imperial Guard Army is coming in at 4,033 points.

I have 2 super heavy vehicles and an Imperial Knight.

Lovell, 33 points over is no problem.

While everybody's planning their armies, keep in mind these scoring rules, same as the past couple years:

All players designate a warlord as usual, one of which on each team is nominated to be the warmaster.

After deployment, each team alternates having each player place a secondary objective anywhere on the board, caveat the usual restrictions (at least 12″ from other objectives, 6″ from table edges).
** Any player and either team can score any secondary objective, they’re just placed by a particular player to represent their personal goals.

Only troops may score objective markers until the final scoring, at which point all scoring units count.

Scoring happens at the end of each game turn (including Turn 1):
* Primary objectives are worth the current game turn number;
* Secondary objectives are always worth 1 victory point;
* The warmasters are worth 3 points;
* Eliminating a superheavy, gargantuan, mighty bulwark, lord of war, or warlord is worth 1 point each.
