    Event Details

    Welcome

    It is with great pleasure that I can introduce the return of the Vale Renegades battle league. This is the 4th

    iteration of the battle league and hopefully will be the best one yet with a really flourishing edition in 8th

    for us

    to get our teeth in to. Please take the time to read through this pack and the accompanying mission pack very

    carefully and we hope to see you on the battlefields!

    Format

    The Battle League and Big Bash Cup will be 2000 points and will run Warhammer 40K Matched play straight

    out of the book with some minor changes as shown below.

    In a mission that requires objective markers you must use markers that are no bigger than 2 in

    diameter. Additionally, when measuring distances to objectives use the full size of the marker rather

    than just the centre of the marker.

    Terrain must be setup using 1 of the 3 random layouts we have provided in the mission pack. The

    layout is determined randomly, usually by rolling a D3 and using the number rolled. If both players

    wish to add more terrain then that is ok, this requirement is just a minimum requirement.

    Battle League

    The battle league will have a window of just over 15 weeks to play all of your fixtures. The season will be split

    in to two halves, in the case of an odd number of games the higher amount will be in the first half of the

    season. These fixtures and any results submitted will be shown on the club website along with all the other

    information you will need to take part in the league and cup. Follow this link to get to the battle league

    webpage.

    The battle league will consist of a few divisions (the amount depends on exact numbers and will hopefully be

    finalised before the list submission deadline) with a maximum of 8 players in each division and the players

    divided evenly in to those divisions. Where a player will be placed will depend on last years placings and for

    new players their player skill will be estimated and they will be placed where the organisers deem appropriate.

    Each division will have promotion and relegation with the top 2 promoted and the bottom 2 relegated from

    each division (unless promotion or relegation is impossible). This will then be used for the following years

    battle league.

    Big Bash Cup

    The big bash cup is a knockout cup played alongside the league. There will be set deadlines (see schedule) to

    play your games by and then the draw for the next round will be made. Please ensure you play and submit

    your scores as early as possible within the windows to avoid any delays. The round deadlines are shown in the

    schedule later in this document.

    The big bash cup is win/loss format and does not use hobby scores, players will only need to inform the

    organiser of the winner and loser via the normal results submission method (send it to the club email). It will

    have all players entered in to it and a random draw carried out for every round.

    The International Tournament Circuit

    This event is an ITC registered event and thus is awarding ITC points depending on your final standing in the

    leagues. Please ensure you provide the email address that you want to use to score ITC points when

    submitting your list. For more information about the ITC please follow this link: ITC.

    Army Selection

    Army Composition

    The battle league will be using the ITC army composition rules and FAQs found using this link: ITC Tournament

    Format and FAQs. The full GW FAQs will be in use and are found within the ITC FAQ as a further link, we will

    have a cut-off date for any FAQs or rules releases which will be the same date as the list submission deadline

    Monday 21st

    May.

    Army List Submission

    All lists must be submitted to valerenegades@gmail.com on or before Midnight on Monday 21st

    May in the

    army list submission format shown below (this format makes my job easier so please follow it entirely).

    There are 4 sections for the league and cup where players can use a different list in each section. These

    sections are:

    1. 1st

    Half of the League - first half of league games rounding up.

    2. 2nd

    Half of the League - second half of league games rounding down.

    3. Early Rounds of the Cup - 1/2nd

    rounds.

    4. Late Rounds of the Cup - Finals.

    You must label each list as shown in the list submission section with one of the above labels. If you are using a

    list for multiple sections then ensure you label it as such to avoid any confusion.

    Players List Checking

    Due to the increased cost and demand that comes with checking lists in 8th

    edition, this year we will instead be

    publishing the lists as soon as possible during the week after the submission deadline, and asking the players

    to do the checking for us. We will setup a forum thread to post any errors found, and if any errors are found

    mailto:valerenegades@gmail.commailto:valerenegades@gmail.comhttps://docs.google.com/document/d/1bUs0HrJ3f6YzR6mWlT1LRLq0i9_0ekf7ah9WhCTxsIo/edithttps://docs.google.com/document/d/1bUs0HrJ3f6YzR6mWlT1LRLq0i9_0ekf7ah9WhCTxsIo/editmailto:valerenegades@gmail.com

    then the person responsible must be tagged and the error explained. Then that player responsible must

    explain the error and resubmit if necessary to the list submission email.

    I understand this may be a little different than normal but the release schedule and cost included with that

    schedule has meant that checking lists for larger numbers of players is almost impossible for a small group of

    people, let alone one person.

    Army List Submission Format

    Army lists should be typed up using Microsoft Word with all space formatting removed. Please ensure that

    they are submitted exactly the same as per the example shown below:

    Please title the email as follows: Warhammer 40K, 2018 Battle League Division 1, John Smith

    Modelling and Painting Requirements

    All models can be painted or unpainted, but there are bonus points awarded to players who use fully painted

    armies. Clear bases such as those found on skimmer models do not have to be painted and/or based in order

    to count as finished.

    All models are expected to be WYSIWYG to a reasonable standard (exceptions will be made for themed units

    or armies) and using the bases provided when purchased. Using a proxy model is not allowed. Using a

    reasonable substitute to Counts As another model, does not violate our policy.

    When using detachments in your army that contain models with different Faction keywords, then

    they must be easily distinguished from other, similar faction models. Example: Your army has a detachment of

    White Scars Adeptus Astartes and a detachment of Ultramarines Adeptus Astartes. The models in these

    different detachments must be easily identified by your opponent. An example of this would be painting the

    White Scars white and the Ultramarines blue so your opponent can easily identify which units belong to which

    detachment. It is not acceptable to have an army with multiple detachments of Space Marines painted in the

    same scheme wherein some of them are using different faction keywords.

    Gaming + Scoring

    Missions

    The missions in use are shown in the battle league mission pack. When the fixtures are revealed each fixture

    will have a mission number attached to it which MUST be used when playing that fixture. In the case of cup

    games you must randomly determine which mission will be used from the mission pack.

    Time Management

    Players must try to finish their games with a proper conclusion. This cannot be monitored in person but we will

    have a complaint system in place. If you find a player intentionally slow playing in order to run out of time at

    your local gaming store or having to leave early with the game not properly finished, then send an email to

    valerenegades@gmail.co.uk informing the organiser of the issue. Of course resolving the matter with that

    person should be your first priority but this is the last...
