General Information

Painted/Proper Models
Yes, we all like to see painted models. But more than that we like to see people playing the game. If you want to play but your army isn’t painted, you are still welcome. Be prepared for lots of snow camouflage jokes, though! Of course we would prefer WYSIWYG and paint, but we won’t stop you from joining in the fun.

Professional Etiquette
It is asked that you mind your own business when it comes to other games. Do not touch models, and do not take it upon yourself to give advice to another player (unless it’s your team partner or opponents).

Tools of the Trade
Remember to bring plenty of your dice and measuring devices!

If you’re in a tournament, it may be tricky to involve yourself in other events. If you do, however, please be aware of your own tournament’s progression - we won’t wait for you if you forget!

General Housekeeping
The school grounds are no-smoking, but there are ample areas outside the school grounds for smokers to congregate and plot. Dispose of all rubbish and tidy up after yourself. No alcohol on the school grounds. The having of fun is compulsory for all players.

Other Shiny Features
• Food and soft drinks available at the venue.
• Free Tea and Coffee.

Game scores etc. count for the team, not the individual. The winning team gets the medals and prizes. The only individual prize will be for the Best Painted Army. The Tournament organsier/judges word is final.

Format: Five 2½ hour scenario rounds (first round will be a max of three hours to facilitate setting up terrain, terrain then remains set for the remainder of the competition) with three rounds on Saturday, and two on Sunday.

Best Painted/Presented Army: Will be judged by the Manawatu Duellists Club.

Expectation of Players
You are all expected to bring your own dice, rules, rulers, and armies. For anyone wanting to play and unable to comply with these requirements drop the umpire a line and we will see what we can do. First in first served and no promises.

Umpire Note: Should there be an odd number of competitors in a round; a substitute opponent team will be arranged purely for the opportunity of playing a game. This game will be scored as an automatic 8:1 win for the Team.
