Warhammer Tournament Easter 26th April 2019

The Turnip Warhammer Tournament

Join us for the day playing the amazing game of Warhmmer 40,000 and Warhammer Age of Sigmar! Awesome!

Warhammer is a tabletop miniature wargame produced by Games Workshop, set in a dystopian science-fiction fantasy universe.

The club has everything you need to get started, so if you are new to the game, no problem, just turn up. If you are a regular player and have your own figures then feel free to bring them along and play with other members.

The workshop is designed to create a safe environment where young people can enjoy games for a day whilst under the supervision of competent and qualified staff.

The Turnip Warhammer Tournament is a friendly not very competitive tournament for young players to meet new gamers and enjoy the hobby.

Over time we have seen that young people seem to enjoy playing with their own army against other friendly gamers. To build on that format each gamer would get three games during the day against different opponents.

The gaming tables will be four foot by four foot. All the scenery is provided.

Our Tournament Rules

Warhammer 40,000

We play power points, because we like to keep it simple and have fun. If you have your own army, we would advise writing a 50 power and 75 power list. If you do not have your own army or need to top up with some units, then do not worry, we will have lots of additional figures for you to use.

Most games are scored as a simple kill game.
If you kill an entire unit you score the points equal to the power level of that unit.
+1 bonus point for first blood. Your army is the first to kill an entire unit from the other side.
+1 bonus point for Slay the Warlord. You kill the enemy warlord, this is in addition to its power level.
+1 bonus point for line breaker. If you have one of your units within your opponent’s deployment zone at the end of the game.

If you and your opponent wish to use the full rules for objectives and you have the cards, please feel free to play the full game.

Lords of War
We love Lords of War but, because we play such small games to allow for the time scale, Lords of War are often very powerful. If you wish to use a Lord of War, your opponent must agree to it before the game. We would advise writing armies with and without Lords of War if you wish to play with them.

Warhammer Age of Sigmar

We play 800 point and 1000 point games in the time allocated. If you do not have your own army or need to top up with some units, then do not worry, we will have lots of additional figures for you to use.

Most games are scored as a simple kill game.
If you kill an entire unit you score the points equal to the unit.

+50 bonus point for Slay the Warlord. You kill the enemy warlord, this is in addition to its points level.

If you and your opponent wish to use the full rules for objectives and you have the cards, please feel free to play the full game.

New to the game

The club runs games for experienced players who have their own armies and also breaks down and teaches hobby rules for new members. This club is a creative way of building literacy and numeracy skills. Using the rule books and army books to help guide players through the games, they use mathematics to calculate 'budgets' for their armies and as dice are rolled during the games.

This is a fun workshop where young people are taught team skills, group skills, communication skills, fair play, persistence, artistic modelling skills and it also helps aid literacy and numeracy through game play.
