INTRO TOURNAMENT PACK
This document provides all the information you need to play in the Introduction to Tournament Play event. The
event promises to offer a super chilled, friendly gaming environment aimed at introducing 40K players to
tournament style play. Players will participate in a one-day event that will consist of 3 x Incursion sized games
(1000 pts). Ultimately, though, the aim is simply to have fun and maybe learn a thing or two along the way.
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 the start of play.
