Warhammer 40,000 Grand Tournament Heat 4 | Warhammer World | Saturday, 16. February 2019

The Official Warhammer 40,000 Grand Tournament is back! Games Workshop's signature Warhammer 40,000 Matched Play event showcases great gaming skills, sportsmanship and well-presented armies. If you want to test yourselves against the very best, showcase a beautifully painted army, and play against like-minded people, then the Grand Tournament is for you.
Each player will need to demonstrate astute knowledge of the game, sound tactical decisions and appropriate unit selection to win their games. In addition, the Warhammer 40,000 GT is a celebration of the Games Workshop hobby, so an attitude overflowing with good cheer, sincerity and positivity is essential - as is bringing along a fantastic looking army to play with.
Combining all three of these elements to win the event is a mighty task worthy of the ages. In the end, only one of you will prove yourself worthy of this colossal achievement and be crowned the Warhammer 40,000 Grand Champion!
The HeatsThis year the Grand Tournament will consist of 4 Heats and a Grand Final. Each Heat is an individual tournament, an esteemed event with epic battles fought and worthy winners crowned. At the end of each heat we will rank players overall and the top players from each heat will qualify for the final - a mighty achievement in itself. The Grand Final will consist of the top players from each heat and will be held at the end of the season. It will establish the final rankings for the top Warhammer 40,000 players for 2018/2019.
Event EssentialsRules: Warhammer 40,000 Matched Play (see pages 214-215 of the Warhammer 40,000 rulebook).Army size: 1,750 : Eternal of games: selection: Battle-forged with a maximum of three Detachments. Excluding Troops and Dedicated Transports, each datasheet can be included a maximum of three times in your in use: All current and in-print Warhammer 40,000 Index books, Codexes, beta rules, FAQs and errata from Games Workshop and Forge World, unless their release falls on the weekend of the event. We expect you to use the most current datasheets for your models – e.g. those found in a Codex rather than an Index if a Codex is available for your army. This means that you may use Faction-appropriate Index datasheets that might not appear in your Codex (such as Chaplain on Bike)Meals: Lunch is provided on both activities: Painting competitions and free entry to the Warhammer World exhibition.
Model RequirementsPlaying exciting, atmospheric games with fully painted miniatures is a big part of our events at Warhammer World. Therefore all miniatures in your collection must be 100% Games Workshop miniatures and be fully assembled, painted and based. Each model must fully represent what you have presented on your army roster (including all weapons and equipment).
If you have painted your models in a specific way, we expect you to use the rules relevant to that scheme. For example, if you have painted your models as Salamanders, your army must have the Salamanders keyword. If you have created your own unique colour scheme, then you may give them any keyword that you wish.
If you have used different keywords between Detachments, there must be a clear visual difference between each Detachment. For example, if you have a Tyranid army with Detachments from both Hive Fleet Kraken and Kronos, the models in each Detachment must be clearly distinguishable from one to another such as a different coloured carapace. Contact us if you are unsure whether something is clearly distinguishable.
Furthermore, you need to contact us to let us know about any conversions or proxies you are planning on using, and provide us with photos of the models in question where possible. Don’t worry, we fully appreciate awesome hobby skills and cool models, but we just want to make sure everything is super clear for your opponent and no confusion can arise during games.
We will politely ask you to remove any models that don’t meet these above standards to protect everyone’s experience. If you would like more information on Warhammer World’s model requirements then read our guide here.
