Mission Pack for the Open Fire! Tournament at Event Horizon:

 

Pre-Game Process

  1. Once at your table, swap lists with your opponent and study what you’re up against.
  2. Place the Relic at the center of the table (if necessary)
  3. Place Objectives per mission rules
  4. Choose/Roll for Warlord Traits
  5. Choose/Roll for Psychic Powers
  6. Determine Deployment: Both players roll off, rerolling any ties. The winner rolls a single die to determine the deployment type (p.216-217). Once the map is determined, the loser of the roll off chooses his/her deployment zone.
  7. Alternate Deployment as per BRB, starting with the player who did not choose their deployment zone.
  8. After both players have finished deploying their army, roll to determine first turn. The player who finished deploying first receives a +1 to this roll. The player that wins the roll can choose to go first or second. The player who is chosen to go second may attempt to seize the initiative.
  9. Shake hands and start playing.

Battle Length: At the end of game turn 5, the player who went first must roll a D6. On a roll of a 3+ the game continues, otherwise, the game ends. At the end of game turn 6, the player who went second rolls a D6. On a roll of a 4+ the game continues, otherwise, the game ends. The game ends automatically at the end of the 7th game turn.

Updated Sudden Death: If, at the end of any turn after the first full game turn, a player has no models on the table, a judge should be called. Note, Flyers do not count towards models on the table per GW FAQ. The player with models remaining must play out the remainder of the game including rolls to see if the game continues at the end of game turns 5 and 6.

Forfeit: A player who gives up, refuses to/is unable to play out a match to its conclusion, or otherwise forfeits receives no points they may have earned during the match. If this occurs, call a judge immediately. The remaining player will act as though a “Sudden Death” has occurred.

Rerolls before the first Battle Round: Players may reroll die rolls before the first round begins. However, all rolls before the first battle round starts count as a single phase. EXAMPLE: A player loses the roll off to determine who goes first. That player chooses to reroll their die and still loses. That player may not later reroll their Seize the Initiative roll because they have already used the “Command Reroll” Strategem this phase.
