All armies for this event should be no larger than 1000 points. Forces can be made up using the generic reinforced platoons or theatre selectors from any of the “Armies of…” series. We will not be using lists from the TANK WARS rules.
We have no restrictions listed for this event. We at BA.net 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 This means that the main rulebook army lists and outdated PDF lists may not be used.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.
Use of units listed in the "Tank Wars" book" and units in the “Ossfront”, “Germany Strikes”, or “Battlefield Europe” Campaign Books are fine to use.
Please make sure that you are familiar with the most up to date rules FAQ PDF available (for free) from the Warlord Games Website.
THIS EVENT WILL BE USING THE BOLTACTION.NET FORMAT RULES (Season 2). For more detail please look here.
