Army Lists:
All armies for this event should be no larger than 800 points. Forces must be made up using the generic reinforced platoons. We will NOT be using theatre selector lists or lists using the TANK WARS rules.

Vehicle Flame Throwers are not allowed for this event.

Outside of the VFT restriction we have no other restrictions listed for this event.  We at would like to encourage people to experiment and play with lists that are fun to play with and to play against. This is NOT a win at all costs event. The TO reserves the right to ask players to resubmit army lists that are considered abusive to play against. To be clear, this has never been a problem in the past and we do not expect it to be a problem into the future.  There will be prize drawing for players who go to the effort of theming their lists. I.E. Invasion of Manchuria Japanese, Guadalcanal Marines, German forces in Anzio, etc…

All current “Armies of…” books must be used (up to date “Armies of…” PDF’s issued by Warlord Games may be used as well). This means that the main rulebook army lists and outdated PDF lists may not be used.  Please note that units listed in the “Additional Units” PDF are available for use.

Please contact the TO if you would like to use units listed in the “Battlefield Europe” Campaign Book.

Please make sure that you are familiar with the most up to date rules FAQ PDF available (for free) from the Warlord Games Website.

Though this is a event we will not be using the Season 1 tournament rules. This event will use Bolt Action’s rules as written.
The Warplane rules will not be used for this event.

Bolt Action Melbourne: February is a three game tournament.  Each round will last 2 hours.  In Round 1 players will be chosen at random. We will be using 3 rulebook missions over the course of the day. Maximum Attrition, Hold Until Relieved and Point Defense.
