Tie Breakers
In the event of a tie breaker between rounds and for final standings a series of tiebreakers will be used (in order):
1. Strength of Schedule (the total number of points your opponents have accross all rounds)
2. Blood Points (see below)

Blood Points

A unit is worth a number of Blood Points equal to its cost in points. You score these points for enemy units destroyed, fled off the board or fleeing at the end of the game. Keep a note of Blood Points earned at the end of each game as these will help with rankings.

Half Blood Points are scored at the end of the game for the following:
Units below 50% starting number of wounds.
Creatures and vehicles below 50% starting wounds.

A note on being under pointed: All armies should be worth exactly the points available for this event, if your army is less than the available points then your opponent automatically gets those points at the end of the game. E.g., if your army is worth 1995/2000 your opponent will automatically get the additional 5 points that you haven't spent, this is the ensure lists are not intentionally under pointed.

Participant Responsibilities
Participants are expected to turn up on time. They should ensure they start their rounds in a timely fashion and avoid time delaying during rounds.

Participants must bring the following:

All appropriate rulebooks, army books and literature for your army.

2 full print outs of your list for the day.

Dice, tape measure, Wound markers and a pen!

In the event you fail to bring any of these items and are found to need them in a rules query you will be ruled against.


Best Painted
If the event prize pool warrants a Best Painted prize, during the lunch any players wishing to enter the painting competition will be asked to display their army. Outpost staff and other players will vote on armies and decide the best painted. To enter, your army must be fully painted and based.

Bloodiest General
If the event prize pool warrants a Bloodiest General prize, the player with the highest Blood Points value will be crowned the Bloodiest General.
