Mission Pack:

The official combat patrol rules document’s 6 missions will be used and be chosen at random at the start of every round.

Note that your “enhancement” and secondary mission is chosen at the start of each game so no need to specify.

We recommend printing out your relevant rules or referring to the official warhammer 40K App while playing.

Code of Conduct:

(Please remember that the purpose of the event is to have fun as well as trying to win your games. It’s very important that all of the players enjoy their games! We strongly encourage players to play in the spirit of the game and not be “that guy”

The ITC has a code of conduct that will be used throughout the event - please familiarise yourself with it prior to the event so that you know what you should expect, and also what your opponent should expect from you. You can find it here.

If a player has more than one game that doesn’t reach a natural conclusion - ie the game doesn’t finish a game at turn 5 before the time for the round has expired - they will have points deducted from their tournament score. Where this is found to be deliberate there may be additional penalties, please see the code of conduct above.)
