Army Lists
Armies must be compliant with published GW rules and FAQs as of November 15, 2024. All
books published as of November 15, 2024 will be allowed.
Armies must be built using the below restrictions:
● 554 points (or less)
● No named characters (you cannot include any model which you could normally only
include one of. For example, you may not include The Witch-king of Angmar, Bilbo
Baggins, Faramir, etc. in an army list. You may, however, include any number of
non-named characters (Captains, Barrow-wights, Shamans, etc.)).
● Players only need to bring one army (Good or Evil). In the case of two players having the
same army side (Good vs. Good or Evil vs. Evil) in a game, players should roll off before
the game begins to determine who will be “Good” and who will be “Evil” (winner
chooses). NOTE: This will only affect deciding roll-off results, armies will otherwise follow
any other rules related to their original army side.
● Army lists may use historic, convenient, or impossible allies, as well as Legendary
Legions, so long as they meet all other requirements.
● Proxies and conversions may be used so long as they are similar in size and aesthetics
to models produced by Games Workshop. Proxied or converted models must adhere the
following guidelines:
○ Model bases must be consistent with the official Games Workshop profile they
○ Model(s) must be consistent with the wargear available in the official Games
Workshop profile they represent.

○ Model(s) must be distinguishable and consistent throughout the same unit type
within the army.
○ Ultimately, allowability of a proxied or converted model will be determined by the
tournament organizer (TO), Bill West. Please email with any
questions on this.

● While we encourage all players to have a fully painted army, this is not a requirement for
this event.

Army lists should be emailed to Bill West ( no later than November 15,
2024 for review and approval.

You should bring 4 printed copies of your army list (1 for the TO, 1 for each opponent), all
relevant books for your army (Core Rulebook, Armies of Lord of Rings/The Hobbit, supplement
books, etc.), the Matched Play Guide, measurement tools, and dice.
