List Submission due date: October 18, 2019 (please upload your list to the BCP app)
(https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=3&v=-FBscSISaZE), as well as rules on chess clocks(https://drive.google.com/file/d/0ByVzaY23LOX-dGUzQ3YxSG1xX3FTdy1VdXNHQXlEVkJJdEQw/view?usp=sharing). 


The ITC Code of Conduct will be in effect for this event. You will be expected to have read and understood prior to coming. (https://docs.google.com/document/d/1RFhFICnwr15wK0pdUcUnp0uNRn_-jUdtZvHKPTTR4Yo/edit)

In the Code of Conduct under timing:

Either player in a game may request to use a Chess Clock. If the event does not have any more available clocks the player(s) may use one of their own. The players need not agree on using the clock, if either player wishes to use one, it must be used. Once they have begun to use a clock, the rules governing “Timed Game” are in effect and enforceable by the Judge

Any specialist detachments are required to be listed on your army roster. For list submission purposes, any stratagem that changes a model/units abilities is required to be on the roster. Examples include the Vigilus Field Commander stratagem, Space Marine Chapter Master Stratagem, Blood Angel Deathvisions of Sanguinius, Dark Eldar Alliance of Agony etc. Relics, specific Warlord Traits (including any gained pregame), and Psychic Powers and other pre-deployment stratagems are not required to be on the roster, as they may be chosen prior to deployment as per Step one of the Pre Game instructions in the ITC 8th edition Missions document.For example; You would have to list the Alliance of Agony stratagem on your roster and the character(s) it affects, however not the actual warlord trait.

Any FAQs will be in effect up to and including the Friday prior to the event. However Errata, i.e. rule changes, and points adjustments will be cut off at October 18th list submission.

Some common questions and how we are ruling them:

Obliterators use the datasheet from Shadowspear, and their updated point cost (115 points)

GSC may not deepstrike on turn 1.

A Bad Moon Shokk attack Gun in a dread waaagh detachment may fire twice using the vigilus stratagem OR the bad moon stratagem to fire twice. They may not use both to fire more than twice.

If you are bringing custom converted army/units you must CLEARLY MARK on your army roster which units are stand ins for each unit. A written description is acceptable, a visual (pictoral) description is better.

Proxy vs Counts-As

A proxy is a stand in for another model, wyches for harlequins, cardboard boxes for rhinos, guardsman with lasrifles painted blue for plasma vets.  These will not be permitted under any circumstances.

Counts as is a model that has been scratch built or altered/borrowed from another game system that is reasonably a match for its replacement. For example, A Gundam Wraithknight.  Converted models to look like the model they’re representing.  Unpainted and incorrectly based models will not be considered as proper counts-as models.  Models should be on the bases as the models they’re trying to represent.

The Battlefield Terrain Rules listed on Pg.248-251 in the main rulebook will be used for ITC events.

Only exception is all buildings regardless of how modeled are considered to have all the windows and doors on the 1st floor boarded up (ie you cannot use the 1st floor windows/doors for Line of Sight purposes).

All models are expected to be WYSIWYG to a reasonable standard. Exceptions will be made for themed units or armies.

Using a reasonable substitute to “Counts As” another model, does not violate our policy.
If in doubt, send a picture in of a model to your TO in advance to ask if it is acceptable.

In addition, you will be asked to vote for your top 3 favorite armies during day one. Third party painted looks nice but if it’s themed cool and really seems well thought out feel free to give that army highest marks! This will be used to determine the favourite army.

Please leave your army on display during lunch of day one to make it easier for people to vote for you, don’t forget to leave your name out somewhere nearby!
