And here is the detailed bit..........
The Iron Haven Tournament 2011 consists of 4 games of Hordes/Warmachine. For these games you will require two lists. Both lists must follow the guidelines laid out below. Note Minion pacts “The Thornwood Alliance” and “The Blindwater Congregation” may be used as presented in No Quarter Magazine and FoH: Minions, but proxies are not allowed. All other Hordes and Warmachine factions and contracts are permitted and tier lists, where available in print, are allowed.
New releases (such as from Wrath) are allowed as long as the rules are available by list submission date.
35 points chosen from the faction of your choice within the normal rules of army composition as laid out in the Prime/Primal rulebooks.
25 points chosen from the same faction chosen for the 35 point list. This list must include the same Warlock/Warcaster as your 35 point list. This list is a “mangled metal”/”tooth and claw” list. This means only Warlocks/Warcasters and their Beasts/Jacks can be chosen.
Your army lists must be submitted to email@example.com by Friday 22/07/11 so as they can be checked and validated before the event.
The title of Iron Gauntlet 2011 will be awarded to the player with the highest score based on our scoring system. There are three ways of scoring points for the Iron Gauntlet Tournament. You score for winning, drawing or losing the game. You score for the amount of Control Points you gain during the game. You score victory points for models you destroy or maul during the game.
Game Won (Warlock/Warcaster kill or Scenario win) 3 points
Game Draw (Time runs out without either player achieving a win) 2 points
Game Lost (Warlock/Warcaster lost or Scenario loss) 1 point
At the end of your game you must note along with the games outcome, how many control points you gained from the scenario and how many victory points you got from destroying
your opponents forces. Each selection is worth an equal amount of VP’s to its cost in points. For example a Titan Gladiator which is destroyed at the end of a game is worth 8 victory points to its opponent as this is how many points its owner paid for it. Units or models reduced to UNDER half strength are worth half of their points cost (rounded up) in VP’s. For example a unit of 6 Pyg bushwackers reduced to 2 models by the games end would be worth 3 VP’s, half of their cost of 5 rounded up. However if the unit was 3 models strong they would be worth nothing as they have not been reduced to under half strength.
At the end of the tournament placing will be decided by how many Tournament points each player has in this order
Game Won/Lost/Drew > Control Points > Victory Points
For example if two players have the same amount of tournament points from Games won. Their placing will then be decided by who obtained the most control points during their 4 games. If this amount is equal it will fall to Victory Points to determine the final placement of the two players.
Tournament points are also awarded for painting as follows.
Well painted models with detail and basing 2 points
Painted and based models 1 point
Unpainted models no basing 0 points
These points are added to a players Win/Draw/Loss score so make sure your models are looGauntlet good and ready to go.
There are four rounds to the Iron Gauntlet Tournament. Three rounds are played using your 35 point list and one round is played with your 25 point Mangled Metal/Tooth and Claw. These rounds will be played using variations of the current Steamroller scenarios.. The scenarios we are using will be revealed on the day so as to encourage the most rounded army lists possible. This prevents building with the scenario in mind. You must come with your pre selected force and adapt to the conditions of the battlefield, whatever they may be.
Entry to the event is going to cost £10 for the entire day, £7.50 for IHG members
