    2 2018 Warhammer 40K Battle League

    Event Details

    Welcome

    It is with great pleasure that I can introduce the return of the Vale Renegades battle league. This is the 4th

    iteration of the battle league and hopefully will be the best one yet with a really flourishing edition in 8th

    for us

    to get our teeth in to. Please take the time to read through this pack and the accompanying mission pack very

    carefully and we hope to see you on the battlefields!

    Format

    The Battle League and Big Bash Cup will be 2000 points and will run Warhammer 40K Matched play straight

    out of the book with some minor changes as shown below.

    In a mission that requires objective markers you must use markers that are no bigger than 2 in

    diameter. Additionally, when measuring distances to objectives use the full size of the marker rather

    than just the centre of the marker.

    Terrain must be setup using 1 of the 3 random layouts we have provided in the mission pack. The

    layout is determined randomly, usually by rolling a D3 and using the number rolled. If both players

    wish to add more terrain then that is ok, this requirement is just a minimum requirement.

    Battle League

    The battle league will have a window of just over 15 weeks to play all of your fixtures. The season will be split

    in to two halves, in the case of an odd number of games the higher amount will be in the first half of the

    season. These fixtures and any results submitted will be shown on the club website along with all the other

    information you will need to take part in the league and cup. Follow this link to get to the battle league

    webpage.

    The battle league will consist of a few divisions (the amount depends on exact numbers and will hopefully be

    finalised before the list submission deadline) with a maximum of 8 players in each division and the players

    divided evenly in to those divisions. Where a player will be placed will depend on last years placings and for

    new players their player skill will be estimated and they will be placed where the organisers deem appropriate.

    Each division will have promotion and relegation with the top 2 promoted and the bottom 2 relegated from

    each division (unless promotion or relegation is impossible). This will then be used for the following years

    battle league.

    Big Bash Cup

    The big bash cup is a knockout cup played alongside the league. There will be set deadlines (see schedule) to

    play your games by and then the draw for the next round will be made. Please ensure you play and submit

    your scores as early as possible within the windows to avoid any delays. The round deadlines are shown in the

    schedule later in this document.

    The big bash cup is win/loss format and does not use hobby scores, players will only need to inform the

    organiser of the winner and loser via the normal results submission method (send it to the club email). It will

    have all players entered in to it and a random draw carried out for every round.

    The International Tournament Circuit

    This event is an ITC registered event and thus is awarding ITC points depending on your final standing in the

    leagues. Please ensure you provide the email address that you want to use to score ITC points when

    submitting your list. For more information about the ITC please follow this link: ITC.

    Army Selection

    Army Composition

    The battle league will be using the ITC army composition rules and FAQs found using this link: ITC Tournament

    Format and FAQs. The full GW FAQs will be in use and are found within the ITC FAQ as a further link, we will

    have a cut-off date for any FAQs or rules releases which will be the same date as the list submission deadline

    Monday 21st

    May.

    Army List Submission

    All lists must be submitted to valerenegades@gmail.com on or before Midnight on Monday 21st

    May in the

    army list submission format shown below (this format makes my job easier so please follow it entirely).

    There are 4 sections for the league and cup where players can use a different list in each section. These

    sections are:

    1. 1st

    Half of the League - first half of league games rounding up.

    2. 2nd

    Half of the League - second half of league games rounding down.

    3. Early Rounds of the Cup - 1/2nd

    rounds.

    4. Late Rounds of the Cup - Finals.

    You must label each list as shown in the list submission section with one of the above labels. If you are using a

    list for multiple sections then ensure you label it as such to avoid any confusion.

    Players List Checking

    Due to the increased cost and demand that comes with checking lists in 8th

    edition, this year we will instead be

    publishing the lists as soon as possible during the week after the submission deadline, and asking the players

    to do the checking for us. We will setup a forum thread to post any errors found, and if any errors are found

    mailto:valerenegades@gmail.commailto:valerenegades@gmail.comhttps://docs.google.com/document/d/1bUs0HrJ3f6YzR6mWlT1LRLq0i9_0ekf7ah9WhCTxsIo/edithttps://docs.google.com/document/d/1bUs0HrJ3f6YzR6mWlT1LRLq0i9_0ekf7ah9WhCTxsIo/editmailto:valerenegades@gmail.com

    then the person responsible must be tagged and the error explained. Then that player responsible must

    explain the error and resubmit if necessary to the list submission email.

    I understand this may be a little different than normal but the release schedule and cost included with that

    schedule has meant that checking lists for larger numbers of players is almost impossible for a small group of

    people, let alone one person.

    Army List Submission Format

    Army lists should be typed up using Microsoft Word with all space formatting removed. Please ensure that

    they are submitted exactly the same as per the example shown below:

    Please title the email as follows: Warhammer 40K, 2018 Battle League Division 1, John Smith

    LIST SUBMISSION SECTION: 1st

    Modelling and Painting Requirements

    All models can be painted or unpainted, but there are bonus points awarded to players who use fully painted

    armies. Clear bases such as those found on skimmer models do not have to be painted and/or based in order

    to count as finished.

    All models are expected to be WYSIWYG to a reasonable standard (exceptions will be made for themed units

    or armies) and using the bases provided when purchased. Using a proxy model is not allowed. Using a

    reasonable substitute to Counts As another model, does not violate our policy.

    When using detachments in your army that contain models with different Faction keywords, then

    they must be easily distinguished from other, similar faction models. Example: Your army has a detachment of

    White Scars Adeptus Astartes and a detachment of Ultramarines Adeptus Astartes. The models in these

    different detachments must be easily identified by your opponent. An example of this would be painting the

    White Scars white and the Ultramarines blue so your opponent can easily identify which units belong to which

    detachment. It is not acceptable to have an army with multiple detachments of Space Marines painted in the

    same scheme wherein some of them are using different faction keywords.

    Gaming + Scoring

    Missions

    The missions in use are shown in the battle league mission pack. When the fixtures are revealed each fixture

    will have a mission number attached to it which MUST be used when playing that fixture. In the case of cup

    games you must randomly determine which mission will be used from the mission pack.

    Time Management

    Players must try to finish their games with a proper conclusion. This cannot be monitored in person but we will

    have a complaint system in place. If you find a player intentionally slow playing in order to run out of time at

    your local gaming store or having to leave early with the game not properly finished, then send an email to

    valerenegades@gmail.co.uk informing the organiser of the issue. Of course resolving the matter with that

    person should be your first priority but this is the last resort if the discussion does not solve the issue.

    For every complaint a player will receive a point deduction equal to a full game win. A deduction will only be

    applied once the issue has been discussed by the organiser, the person who made the complaint and the

    person at fault.

    Submitting Scores

    The mission pack will explain how you score your missions and must be read carefully to ensure you score

    them correctly. Every mission will end in a final battle point score which you should record on your scoresheet

    and send to the organiser at this email address: valerenegades@gmail.com. Please ensure you send your

    hobby scoresheets as well as your gaming scoresheets. Failure to send both once will be chased up, but twice

    will result in a 0 score on the forgotten scoresheet recorded for both players concerned.

    Summary of Points

    Area Maximum

    Gaming 20 per fixture

    Gaming Points

    The battle point scores you record on your scoresheets provided in the mission pack will translate straight over

    to league points along with a bonus for winning, drawing and even losing. These bonuses are:

    Result League Points

    Win 5

    Draw 3

    Loss 1

    This means that a player can achieve a maximum score from each game of 25 and a minimum score from each

    game of 1.

    Hobby Points

    The hobby scoring will be broken down in to categories that must be scored along with your gaming

    scoresheet after every game you play in the league (excluding cup games). A hobby scoresheet will be

    provided in the mission pack.

    The 3 categories are painting, sportsmanship and gaming etiquette. These sections will have yes and no

    questions that you will fill in and submit to the organiser along with your gaming scoresheet. Every question if

    ticked yes will score your opponent 1 hobby point each. Please take the time to read these sections carefully

    because it is important that these are scored properly. You are not obligated to show your opponent what you

    have scored them and in fact we encourage you not to, though you can discuss or ask those questions if it will

    help you fill in your hobby scoresheet.

    Prizes

    The following prizes will be on offer at this event:

    Award Description

    Division Champion Each division winner

    Division Runner-up Second place in each division

    Division Wooden Spoon Bottom placed player in each division

    Hobby Hero Highest hobby score overall across all divisions

    Dependant on numbers we will have other prizes on offer which will be added to this list

    End of League Presentation

    Big Bash Cup Final

    The end of league presentation will have the Big Bash cup final take place just before the final awards evening.

    This will be a timed 3 hour game with both finalists expected to have arrived by 6pm at the very latest

    (preferably earlier) in order to have the presentation take place at 9pm at worst. If this is impossible then

    other arrangements will be made but this is the intended end to the season so efforts to make it happen

    would be greatly appreciated.

    Those not playing in the cup final we still encourage to come down and play casually or if not make sure they

    are present at the very least for the awards ceremony.

    Live Stream

    The cup final will also be streamed live on twitch or YouTube via Firestorm Games to make it even tenser for

    those who have done well enough to make it that far.

    40K Quiz

    If we have enough people turn up then we will have a quiz for people to take part in during the evening before

    the presentation. This will be announced closer to the presentation date.
