75pts Steamroller event (2 lists, D&C, ADR)
£10 Entry

Tickets are available here.

Format
Players will need to bring 2x 75 points lists. Each list must be used at least once (divide and conquer). Lists must comply to the following format:

All rules are subject to the Steamroller 2017 rules pack.

List submission is not required, before round 1 opponents will check their opponents lists, if there are any discrepancies please alert the TO. Spot checks will be made on lists throughout the day. In the event of any discrepancies a DQ may be issued. Get your lists right!

Rounds
The number of rounds is dependant on the number of attendees. Rounds will use Deathclock, rounds are 2 hours. Players are expected to provide their own clocks (free apps are available for phones.)

Scenarios
Scenarios will not be revealed until the day of the event.

Scenario rules, clarifications and scoring systems are found in the Steamroller 2017 rules pack.

Scoring
Scoring will be determined by victories with Strength of Schedule (SoS) as the 1st tie breaker and control points (CP's) as the 2nd tie breaker. In the event that a 3rd tie is needed then AP's will be used.

When handing in your victory slips also indicate the scenario points scored as well as opposing AP destroyed as these will influence your overall score. Please note that:

If a Warcaster/Warlock is killed, all jacks/beasts in his Battlegroup count as being destroyed for the purposes of AP.
Destroyed models are worth the points value indicated on their card even if their points are modified by circumstances such as tier lists. As per SR14 a Warcaster is worth 5 additional AP's if it is destroyed.

A model is worth AP every time is it destroyed (i.e. if it is destroyed, brought back to life and destroyed again)
Units at/above 50% their starting strength do not yield points, models below 50% starting strength yield half AP. Note that a units starting strength is the size of the unit including attachments.

Painting
Painted armies are not required however they are highly encouraged as they improve everyone’s gaming experience. There will also be a best painted award during the event.
