  • Battline: 1+
  • Behemoths: 1-4

Lists should be typed in a logical format with full names, point costs and breakdown of points where relevant. Before each round your opponent may check your list so please ensure you have ALL relevant literature. Failure to do so may result in a disqualification.

A copy of the list must also be given to the TO.


Scenarios will be disclosed on the day but will be from the Matched Play section of the General’s Handbook.


The Prize support increases as the number of participants increase. The minimum prize support, with a requirement of 4 participants is:

  • 1st place - £10 voucher
  • 2nd place - £5 voucher
  • 3rd place - £5 voucher

Assuming a 16 participant event, the prize breakdown would be:

  • 1st Place - £40 voucher
  • 2nd Place - £20 voucher
  • 3rd Place - £10 voucher
  • Bloodiest general - £5 voucher
  • Best painted - £5 voucher


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:

  • A copy of the rules
  • A copy of their appropriate army book & other relevant literature.
  • Two full print out of your list – one to be given to the TO.
  • Dice, tape measure and a pen.
  • In the event that you are using Forgeworld you MUST have the appropriate book(s) and updates.

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.


Games will be scored in the following manner.

  • Win = 10 points
  • Draw = 5 points
  • Loss = 1 point

In the event of a point tie on the leader board, the number of victory points earned will be to determine the winner (so make a note of them on your sheet). If still tied after this then blood points will be used.


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.
  • Monstrous Creatures 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 you opponent automatically gets the additional 5 points that you haven't spent, this is the ensure lists are not intentionally under pointed.

Blood points will also be used to determine the Bloodiest General.


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 model on a specific table. Outpost staff will vote on the entries and decide the best painted. Each entry should be at least 3 colours minimum the models base is considered part of the model for the painting competition.


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