The players must write down the army list(s) they are going to use for the duration of the entire tournament. They must leave a copy of their lists to the referee before the start of the tournament. The force list is public and the opponent can always look at it and ask you questions about your force. You are allowed to register 2 army list and select which list you want to do battle with upon seeing your given Terrain and chosen opponent. 

4. MATCH-UPS

The match-ups of ROUND 1 will be random. Game Table will also be matched randomly with the paired opponent. 

5. SCENARIOS and OBJECTIVES

Scenarios will be played, as described in the BA rulebook, on table with terrain that has been pre-set by the organisers.

6. TOURNAMENT POINTS (TP)

Victory is calculated as described in the Scenarios being played and Tournament points are awarded for victories, defeats and draws as shown below:

Result Tournament Points
Victory 3 TP
Draw 1 PT
Loss 0 TP

In addition, players must also record how many requisition points of enemy units they destroy during their games. These destroyed enemies’ points are added together in a running total.

Every round, points will be given for objectives that are controlled and uncontested. Only infantry units can control objectives and there must not be any enemy units within 6 inches of the “CenterPoint” of the objective.

Result Tournament Points
1 Destroyed Enemy Unit 2 TP
Uncontested Objective 1 TP per round up to 6 TP for 6 rounds.

The above mention is an example for how scoring is done for most scenario game. For some scenario objective, objective points are only awarded after the end of the game. This is applicable to scenarios like “Double Envelopment” etc.

Point scoring conditions for specific scenario objectives will be reiterated during tournament day, so don’t worry about missing out vital details.

8. MODEL REGULATION

ONLY Warlord Games 1/56th Scale Models are allowed.

The Proxy Rules below are ALLOWED

  1. Infantry model weapons. E.g. Officer is carrying a SMG although model shows carrying shooting Pistol
  2. Vehicle’s variation. E.g. This is Panzer IV Ausf A although its modelled after Panzer IV Ausf G

The Proxy Rules below are NOT ALLOWED

  1. Infantry model from a different nation. E.g. This are my Australian Troops which looks suspiciously like American Infantry models.
  2. Although same nation faction but different formation. E.g. Proxying British Commandos as Gurkhas.
  3. Different vehicle models. E.g. Proxying a Panzer as a Panther

Please consult the Tournament Organizer if you are unsure or insane.

9. WINNING THE TOURNAMENT

The winner is determined at the end of the last game, according to the following criteria:

  • The player with the most TP will be the winner.
  • In case of same TP at the top, the winner will be the player with the enemy kills points total.

“Wait a second! We both have US forces! Surely we cannot fight one another?!” or “A note on historicity”. 

Open Bolt Action Tournaments have a very relaxed attitude and basically encourage the idea of simply collecting a force you like and turn up for a few games with friends, where we suspend disbelief and enjoy the game without trying to make it ‘historically plausible’.

If you need to explain to yourself why, for example, these Germans are fighting against other Germans, there are several ways of looking at it: you can either assume it is just an exercise, part of a massive set of manoeuvres, or a ‘what if’ scenario depicting a hypothetical confrontation between different factions of the same country (easier to imagine with some belligerent nation’s forces than others…).
