Sledgehammer 2016, Nov 26th and 27th

Tournament Entry and Information
Bolt Action (BA) Vol 2, a 2 day tournament over weekend of November 26th and 27th at the Woolston Club Christchurch. The event format will be a 1000 point tournament, 5 games, 3 on Saturday and 2 Sunday. Using Bolt Action rules Vol 2 rules.

Cost $20 Either paid at the Wargaming Club on Sundays, or before Tournament Starts.
If you PM me then I can provide an internet banking details.

If payment is not made before the end of play on Saturday of the event, then that player will score zero battle points for the tournament.

Army lists and general questions can be sent to
Army lists required no later than Monday 21st November.

What to Bring
1. A good attitude
2. BA Order dice are mandatory (2 sets, in different colours) as are a tape measure and a bucket of D6’s.
3. An Army, all miniatures must have a basic paint job. (3 colours minimum on each model)
4. A rulebook (BA) Vol2, Army book and any errata or FAQ you think is relevant.
5. Three objectives measuring approximately 40mm x 60mm.

Tournament Rules
Players must use a 1,000 points force, consisting of one, two or three reinforced platoons, but only 14 order dice can be used. These forces must be selected using one of the army list sections of the Armies of German Vol 1, United States, Great Britain, Soviet Union, Imperial Japan, France and Allies or Italy and the Axis.
A copy off your army list is to be made available for your opponent to view before and after each game. Tank War will NOT be used at this tournament.
47 Royal Marine Commando units/army cannot be used.
All units and platoons in your army must be from the same theatre of operations, (European, North Africa, Eastern Front, Italian Front, Far East and Pacific Theatre.)
Units from the additional units PDF can be taken.
Latest Errata and FAQ to be used.
Note that guns need to be towed to move on to the table, they cannot be wheeled on.
Player will also be asked to record requisition point of enemy figures and units they destroy during their games. These destroyed enemies point (let’s call them ‘Casualty points’) are always added together in a running total and are used as a tiebreaker to part players that are on the same level of tournament points. Tough fighters can only be used by troops who get it in the army books and/or the easy army computer program. Line of sight – You can look through one edge of a piece of scenery or through a linear feature but not two piece of scenery. A US Marine Late War squad costs 91 points rather than 81 points as stated on p.26 of the United States Army book.
Special characters may not be used.

Game Time
The game lasts for two hours, after two hours of gameplay, the players must finish the current turn and then the game ends automatically.

Army List

This will then need to be exported as a pdf file and emailed to the Bolt Action umpire before
