The Hellfire RTTs

One day packed with Warhammer, fun, prizes, and a free lunch.  And also, sadly, probably Kevin.  BUT MOSTLY FUN!

One event per month for 2020, starting in February.  We will be  alternating between AOS and 40K, and we’ll probably toss in a double’s event in there as well.

There will also be a larger, 2-day, both systems event in October,  but that is for later. Now…

THE HELLFIRE RTTs

RTT stands for Rogue Trader Tournament, a formula from ye olde times used by GW for one day events.  So, we are doing one day events, and sticking to the classic name, because old school is best.

Both AOS and 40K use roughly the same system:

3 Games

Lunch is included with your ticket

32 player cap per event

Only players with a fully painted army are eligible for prizes.

Prizes are awarded to the following:

Best Overall:  Player with the highest combined battle points and hobby score.

Best General(z): All the undefeated players

Best Painted: The player with the highest hobby score

Additional infos for both systems are covered below.

The 40K Format:

The 40K event will use the ITC rules and missions.  You can find them here.  Please note that the format is subject to change with the 2020 ITC season, so be sure to check before April’s event.

You can find the ITC rules here.

The ITC Conduct Code is also well worth reading.

You can find the missions here.

ADDITIONAL RULES:

Painting

If you want to play with an unpainted army, you will be ineligible for all prizes except raffles.

Here are the ITC paint rules:

The ITC suggests that in order for a player to be eligible for any prize support, all models in their army must be painted to a 3 color minimum and based. Primer counts as a color. Clear bases such as those found on skimmer models do not have to be painted and/or based in order to count as finished. Basing can consist of a simple texture such as flock, or painted a solid color such as black, or consistently based on a material such as clear acrylic. If in doubt, email your TO for approval, but consistency and a finished look are what we look for.

All models are expected to be WYSIWYG to a reasonable standard. Exceptions will be made for themed units or armies.

    • When using detachments in your army that contain models with different <Bracket> 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 <bracket> faction keywords.

 

  • All models meant to represent a certain faction, for example, <Iron Hands> (or whatever faction) must be painted in a coherent fashion. This means that visually, your opponent must be able to identify which models are <Iron Hands> (or whatever faction).
  • Sensible exceptions will be made to this rule, for example, if you painted your Space marines Librarian the traditional blue in your <Iron Hands> army, this is fine. What expressly is not allowed is to have multiple different and conflicting paint and basing schemes and to play them all as the same faction.
  • Using a proxy for a model violates our policy.
  • Using a reasonable substitute to “Counts As” another model, does not violate our policy.
  • We recommend all models be based according to the this Basing Chart for standardization and fairness.If in doubt, send a picture in of a model to your TO in advance to ask if it is acceptable.

The AOS Format:

Missions

The AOS scenarios always award 10 points for the mission, taken from a General’s Handbook or the Rulebook, and up to 10 points for destroying your opponent’s army.

Painting

If you want to play with an unpainted army, you will be ineligible for all prizes except raffles.

We will be using painting guidelines similar to 40K’s ITC, paraphrased here:

The ITC suggests that in order for a player to be eligible for any prize support, all models in their army must be painted to a 3 color minimum and based. Primer counts as a color. Clear bases such as those found on skimmer models do not have to be painted and/or based in order to count as finished. Basing can consist of a simple texture such as flock, or painted a solid color such as black, or consistently based on a material such as clear acrylic. If in doubt, email your TO for approval, but consistency and a finished look are what we look for.

All models are expected to be WYSIWYG to a reasonable standard. Exceptions will be made for themed units or armies.

  • Using a proxy for a model violates our policy.

  • We recommend all models be based according to the this Basing Chart for standardization and fairness.If in doubt, send a picture in of a model to your TO in advance to ask if it is acceptable.
