General Information

Three D6 will act as Tournament Organiser (TO) and host the ACT FOW Grand Tournament on 11-12 November 2017.

Players are to register by visiting the store, registering online (through Three D6’s Facebook Events page) or sending an email to the team at store@threed6.com.au

Registrations will only be considered finalised once payment is received.

This player pack will not be subject to amendment after 1 October 2017. Players should submit questions by email or through the Three D6 Facebook page.

During Round 1, all games will pause to observe Remembrance Day as a group.

Armies

100 Points – of which, up to 10 Points may be used for Command Card upgrades.

Players may field armies from Afrika Korps, Desert Rats or Build Cards. US Army (expected September) and Italian Army (expected November) books and relevant build cards will be allowed for play (if available) up to seven days before the tournament commences, this includes any digital or forces official and for version 4 lists that battle front might electronically publish.

All miniatures are to be fully painted and recognisable as the troops taken. Anyone intending to proxy is to contact staff at Three D6 and advise – it is a players responsibility to ensure opponents fully understand the components of the army; any confusion will be resolved in favour of the opponent.

Whilst not everyone may have a North Africa themed army, eastern front or late war painted troops may be fielded as their equivalent troop type.

In constructing army lists, players should re-read the section of the rulebook on formations and understand how you can bring more diversity to your list.

Players are reminded that some command and staff teams are now redundant. While it is appreciated that players may still wish to field these from an appearance perspective – any confusion that arises from additional teams on table will be resolved in favour of the opponent.

Games

Five games of 3 hours duration over two days (Day 1 – three games, Day 2 – two games; see schedule).

Players are expected to be on time for all rounds. Players may be penalised at discretion of TO.

Missions

Battle plans will be used for determining missions before each game. The Battle Plans mission selector allows you and your opponent to choose the most appropriate missions for your forces after opposing players and tables are announced. Each player chooses a plan in secret and notes it down and then both players reveal their selection (Prepared Attack, Hasty Attack, or Defend) and consult the table in the expanded mission pack, then rolling to select a mission to play.

It is a player’s responsibility to bring a personal copy of the expanded missions pack, and to understand the system of Battle Plans.

Army Submission

Lists are to be emailed to store@threed6.com.au by 1 November 2017 for checking. Please include a club affiliation if you wish to minimize chances of playing a local opponent in first round.

Histories (not mandatory) are to be submitted in hard copy before end Round 1. Histories should not exceed four pages, have lots of maps and pictures, may be humorous or take the form of a set of orders related to your chosen force.

Referee Decisions

Old rugby saying ‘…the referee is the sole judge of fact and law.’

To that end, it is expected that players will play in a friendly, but competitive spirit. Players will normally resolve questions of interpretation of the rules. The TO will make a decision where requested, and the referee decision will be final (even when the TO is wrong, the TO is right). Players contesting the decision once made will be yellow-carded and their opponent will be awarded an extra VP. Second yellow card is a forfeit resulting in an 8-1 victory to their opponent and a red-card (for a third offence), will result in tournament forfeit (removal) with no refund of entry fee.

Use of cards is not expected, but the rules are in place as a precaution.

Draw and Scoring

Where possible, first round will be Allied v Axis – should any players wish to play a [friendly] grudge match; they are to both email Three D6 staff and advise. This will only occur in Round One.

Draw will be based on the Swiss System, matching players on similar Victory Points. No player will repeat a game with an opponent previously played.

Scoring as per Victory Points in the 1942-43 Rulebook.

All players will be issued with a results card for recording scores and progress through the tournament.

Terrain

Community sourced terrain is required; primarily to be themed for North Africa or semi-arid Sicily/Southern Italy. Aim is for terrain consistent with the theme/armies to be played from the books/command cards.

Awards

The Awards Ceremony will take place as soon as possible after the conclusion of the final game. We urge players to stay for the awards ceremony to cheer and commiserate with their fellow players. Awards include:

  • 1st Overall
  • 2nd Overall
  • 3rd Overall
  • Best Painted Army
  • Best Armies History
