RULES AND REGULATIONS

All armies must be fully painted. Any miniatures not fully painted will be pulled from the
table prior to starting the tournament.

Rounds will be determined by Swiss system come ready to play all armies

Missions will be selected randomly immediately before each round

Players are responsible for monitoring the time and the judges will announce time
intervals throughout the tournament. A true act of sportsmanship is not starting a new
turn if both players will not be able to finish that turn. The game should be called if both
players cannot finish their turn and the results should be calculated.

When time is called the game must immediately end regardless of the action taking
place in the game. New turns cannot be started even if starting a new turn would award
an immediate victory or cause a player to make a company morale check.

If two fortified companies face each other then they will play the No Man's Land
Mission.

Unit histories are not necessary.

Army lists must be submitted to USNationals@battlefront.co.nz (Third Party army list
creation sites (i.e., Easy Army, Army Builder) may be used as well as the generic army
