more info: This tournament will be modeled after the Indy Open, in that the scoring will use their rubric.  This event is intended to be a "practice" tournament for those wanting to attend the Indy Open, and want to get a feel for what it will be like, or just want to get together and get some games in!  The missions used will be chosen from their mission packet, available here.  If you haven't registered for the Indy Open, please do so here.

Each mission will have a primary, secondary, and tertiary objective.  The player that achieves the primary objective will win the game.  If the two players tie on the primary objective, then the player who achieves the secondary objective will win, and so on.  If the players tie on all the objectives, then the player who has earned the highest number of victory points will be the winner.  Each objective will be worth a variable number of "bracket points," which will be used to determine a player's position within his win/loss bracket.  The primary objective will be worth 6 points, the secondary objective will be worth 5 points, and the tertiary objective will be worth 4 points, and winning by victory points will be worth 3 bracket points. 

Prizes:  prizes will be awarded to the following players:

Best General - the player with the highest number of bracket points with a 3-0 win/loss record
Best Painted - the player with the highest army appearance score
Best Sportsman - the player who is voted the best opponent by his peers
Renaissance Man - the player with the best combined score (50% battle/50% painting)

Additional prizes will be awarded randomly, and will be determined by the number of attendees.

Please bring the following:
-your army
-any rulebook, FAQ, errata, etc that pertains to your army
-any dice, template, measuring devices that you need to play the game
-a printed army list for each opponent

Sign-up sheet for the tournament will be at the Game Preserve - South.  You may contact them to sign up, or email me at  to sign up.  Please include your name, email address, and what army you will be playing.


  1. This looks great Jason. I will either play or observe based upon your signups. Thank you from the Indy Open team

  2. Did you switch to the new blogger comments? Internet explorer users cannot read your blog. I just got firefox because I couldn't see a lot of blogs. FYI

  3. CaulynDarr: As of today (Monday the 30th), I have 14 people signed up. I was only planning on around 11 or 12 tables, but I can make room for around 28 players pretty easily should the need arise.

    Spags: I haven't changed anything about the blog. Maybe a new version of IE doesn't read it? I really have no idea.

  4. Hope to be there on Sat. so make that 15


  5. I'm trying to talk a buddy into bringing his Tau in, last minute. Is there space, and what requirements (paint, WYSIWYG, etc) are in force?

    1. I have 15 people signed up at the moment. If your friend would like to play, I do not have a painting requirement for my event.

    3. Sorry, my phone is acting out. I do enforce WYSIWYG. I the model is armed with plasma rifle/missile pods, that's what your opponent should be expecting to go up against. I'm fine with proxies, as long as they conform to the WYSIWYG policy above.

    4. Thanks for the reply, Wienas. His big concern is that some of his Crisis suits are short of their required weapons loadout; they don't have different weapons than his army list says, but he purchased the units used and they were missing weapons, and he has had trouble locating bits. Thoughts?

    5. Send me an email at: with the specifics of what models he has and what bits/weapons he needs. My collection of Tau bits isnt huge, but we can probably figure something out.
