INTRODUCTION

This document provides all the information you need to take part in the Spruecutters Warhammer 40K tournament on 15th January 2023.

The event promises to offer a super chilled, friendly gaming environment.

This pack covers the information on the format, timings, and prizes. Missions and Terrain rules are also covered within this pack. A short brief will be given in the morning prior to start of play.
