      Painting and gaming accessories

      You can play with unpainted armies , however, during the tournament we will check your gaming accessories and the painting level of your army, as well as its compliance with the roster sent. At the end of day one please leave your army and the roster on tables, coherently assembled, so that we can quickly and adequately assess it. Gaming accessories will be checked by assistant referees during battles to avoid confusion. No proxies, wooden birds instead of phoenixes or cigarette packs instead of steam tanks, please.

      A. Painting quality 0-4 BP
      Precision of painting, techniques used.
      0 – barely acceptable, basecoat visible from under colours
      1 – correct paints applied to surfaces, no details or effects
      2 – table top (basic drybrush / wash/ dipping), some details painted
      4 – well-painted army (good drybrush / wash and shading, all details painted)

      B. Army coherence 0-3BP
      We evaluate if the army is coherent visually (colours, trays, model bases).
      0 – units and models painted using different colours sets, no coherence
      1 – army to a large extent coherent, no more than 10% models incoherent
      3 – a visually coherent army

      C. Model bases and movement trays 0-3 BP
      0 – any unit of 2+ models without a movement tray
      1 – all units have basic movement trays, all war machines are on bases
      +1 – movement trays are modelled and/or magnetised (in case of magnetic trays without boundaries)
      +1 – model bases are modelled (sand with grass, stones, skulls, etc.)

      D. WYSIWYG
      Visual compliance of models equipment with the roster.
      0 – significant WYSIWYG issues, models feature equipment not included in the roster and/or at least one “proxy” (e.g. fast cavalry instead of heavy cavalry or spearmen instead of halberdiers) and/or poorly executed conversions / adaptations of toys
      1 – WYSIWYG on majority of models in units, several individual models display discrepancies
      2 – full WYSIWYG on units and heroes

      E. Gaming accessories 0-3 BP
      0 – any of the following missing: dice, measuring tape, armybook, roster
      1 – a complete set: dice, measuring tape, armybook, roster
      +1 wound tokens, LoS markers, markers for position of units
      +1 printed spell cards and winds of magic cards (or application to track winds of magic)
      Total: 15 BP

      I reserve the right to remove unsuitable models from table.

      Individual requests
      In case of any doubts concerning painting level, prepainted models, conversions, models WYSIWYG and related, please address me at kozacki.zajazd@gmail.com.

      Victory points per round

      A team may score 28-52 BP.
      Each player may score 0-20 BP, the team results are added.
      A team to score more than 51 BP in a round, scores 52 BP. A team with a result of 27 or less, gets 28 BP. Other teams score BP equal to the sum of their individual results in a given round. The ranking is set based on BP.
      To sum up: 52-28 scoring range

      Bye per round:
      50 BP in round one
      50 BP in round two
      49 BP in round three
      48 BP in round four
      47 BP in round five

      Tie-breakers: capped BP from battles > uncapped BP from battles > the team with less penalty points so far > battle victory points

      The team captain is responsible for reporting the results at the referees table. Penalties for delays:
      0-2 min: 5 BP
      2-5 min: 10 BP
      5-10 min: 20 BP
      10+ min: result is 0:0, 28 BP.

      The referees can and will apply penalty points for unsportsmanlike behaviours, including poor manners. I reserve the right to expel people overusing alcohol or improperly behaving from the tournament (their score for the rest of the tournament will be 0).

      Pairing system:

      - Organiser will indicate a team to get a bye for round one
      - No team from the same club will play against one another in round one
      - Pairings will take place once the rosters are collected
      - Starting from round two, we revert to “Swiss” pairing system
      - A challenge is possible in round one (the challenged team must accept it)

      Pairings for battles
      A and B teams nominate a player each (a defender).
      Each defender is presented with two opposite players (attackers).
      Defenders choose the attackers to play against.
      The attackers that were not chosen, play with the last remaining player of the opposite team.
      Pairings should take 15 minutes most.

      Tables and maps:
      Once the pairing is done, randomise tables for each pair to play on. Please roll for the deployment type once the tables are assigned to players.


      Round one
      1st and 2nd pairing Hold the Ground
      3rd and 4th pairing Capture the Flags

      Round two
      1st and 2nd pairing Breakthrough
      3rd and 4th pairing Secure Target

      Round three
      1st and 2nd pairing Spoils of War
      3rd and 4th pairing Hold the Ground

      Round four
      1st and 2nd pairing Secure Target
      3rd and 4th pairing Breakthrough

    • @ kastyan_kg, there is a bus going from Warsaw centre to Turów, very close to Trylogia,here is the link to google maps. Alternativelty, Uber will be an option. According to uber.com/pl/en/price-estimate/, it should be 48 - 77 PLN, depending on time of the day.

      I have updated the tournament pack in first post above with the following:

      Registration by email: moved to February 23rd. By then I need the rosters, names of teams, names and surnames of players, as well as their armies. This will net you 10 BP. Incomplete registration or errors in rosters will result in no bonus.

      Rosters changes after the deadline: minor errors (like misclick, no general marked, mount errased while editting) must be amended. Incorrect rosters (like exceeding special units limit) must be amended in the least invasive way possible to secure validity. No swapping of units, magic items, paths or magic. Any change will result in no bonus.

      Painting: we don't mind unpainted models, there will be no penalties. Painted armies will get a bonus (a team gets an average bonus of all notes received). No proxies, wooden birds replacing phoenixes or similar, please. Email me if uncertain, please.

      The deadline for bonused registration payment is still January 28. Also, after this date I cannot guarantee there will be beds available at the hotel as I have to return unused rooms into hotel inventory. Please make sure to book in advance. Looking forward to meeting you in Warsaw!
