Year four of Killa Kanz, our doubles tournament with a twist: Trade in canned goods for in-game effects! Play games with your buddies, show off your armies, help the community, and maybe win some door prizes.
Please contact the organizers with any questions.
Registration is by teams of two, $20 per team. There is space for a max of 20 teams.
Online pre-registration is recommended (a link will be posted soon), with on-site registration day-of as space permits. We have slightly more space this year thanks to some floor layout changes by Redcap's, but this event has sold out in the past.
Players select individual army lists following Matched Play rules up to 1000 points.
Each list must be comprised solely of a single detachment.
Named characters and relics may not be repeated within a team.
No datasheet may be included within an individual list more than twice except Troops and Dedicated Transports.
Both players nominate a Warlord as part of their list and choose a trait for them at game time.
Teammates do not need to share faction keywords.
Players will receive an in-game bonus for each canned good or $1 donation. All food and cash donations will go to Philabundance, a trusted food bank serving the Philadelphia and Delaware Valley region.
Matched Play, Chapter Approved, the Big FAQ, (little?) FAQs, Beta rules, and whatever other of the teeming multitude of official erratas-but-don't-call-them-erratas to be published are in effect.
Powers, transports, etc., may be applied and shared between teammates' forces following the usual faction keyword and other restrictions (this is the primary benefit of fielding two aligned lists).
Players should additionally expect the following:
- If GW doesn't do something to limit CP farming prior (i.e., in the upcoming Big FAQ), we will. That will in turn affect our rules about CP generation and sharing, so those are TBD at the moment.
- Our missions award victory points for killing Lords of War as well as large vehicles & monsters.
Missions and other event rules details, including the food drive bonuses, will be posted in early/mid October, aiming for a month prior to the event but waiting on the expected FAQ.
Three rounds of Swiss-pairs matches, each 2:45 in duration.
Entry fees will go toward prizes for overall team standings and hobby competition. If attendance permits there may be an additional prize based purely on results rankings.
Overall standings will include a higher allocation toward hobby scores than in years past.
New this year we will have two hobby competitions by player voting:
- Best Team Army---for a combined army (all models fielded by both players together)
- Best New Model---for a newly prepared model by an individual player
Entrants for the "Best New Model" must be part of the army you're fielding. To compete, you must have a picture of your model assembled but unpainted (primed is ok) alongside a newspaper, website, or similar clearly demonstrating that the model was unpainted as of September 8, 2018 (8 weeks prior to the event).
A team can only win the best prize to which they are entitled, with prizes otherwise bumping down to the runners-up in the other categories.
Doors open at 11am. Players must be present by 11:50, earlier is better. Gaming will begin sharp at noon. There will be a short break for dinner on your own after the second round.
