    Overnight stay

    It is possible to stay overnight at the location, which might be practical for those who have

    to travel far and wish to participate on both days of the event or stay a long time on the

    Saturday evening. The overnight stay will take place in the tournament room in between the

    tables. It is very much appreciated if the participant brings his own air matrass. There are,

    however, mattresses present at the location which can be used after reservation. Sleeping

    bags and pillows are not present and therefore need to be brought along by the participant.

    The location contains no showers.

    Things that need to be brought along


    - your army, movement trays and army list

    - publications of all models in your army

    - entrance fee (unless paid in advance)

    Not essential but allowed (preferably marked):

    - personal dice and templates

    - personal tape-measure

    - Magic spell cards

    - sending in armylist

    - sleeping materials if staying the night (mattress, sleeping bag, )

    - lunch

    Things that are taken care of

    - printed scenarios

    - tables with scenery

    - dice and templates

    - FAQs

    - tray for transporting models


    Participants are expected to bring their own food. There is a C1000 nearby (open on

    Saturday until 9 p.m., Sundays 12-18) and a snack bar / Chinese take-away.

    A fridge and a microwave are present at the location which can be used freely.


    Due to the increasing amount of digital material tablets are allowed and need to be

    sufficiently charged. Tablets can also be used for the armylists and publications such as

  • 4

    codexes and armybooks. Due to the size laptops are not allowed.

    IMPORTANT: bringing tablets to our events is at the owners own risk.

    Casual event

    The events of LOTR Utrecht, including the tournaments, hold the fun of playing and

    sportsmanship in high regard. Though it is always attempted to place equally experienced

    players against each other so they can fully enjoy their game on their own level, new and

    young gamers are equally welcome to have a great time participating.

    So called cheesy armies and a cheesy way of playing are not appreciated.

    Random winners

    At the end of each event an additional winner will be randomly selected from all participants

    present to enable everyone a chance to go home with a prize. Of course, those who have

    already won a prize, and the members of the organization are excluded from this.


    The members of the organization

    -enjoy the hobby as much as any of us and try to participate in the games when possible.

    They can even form teams with non-organization participants.

    -will not be able to win prizes by participating in our events.

    -will have their ranking of the event they participated in displayed to show their


    -are the reserve players and will miss games to even the number of players.

    -are the only ones allowed on the platform and into the storage room. Participants are only

    allowed there on invitation.

    -are available for help, questions and judgement calls.

    For each tournament, one of the members of the organization is designated the referee. He

    is the primary judge for the game and he is available for questions about the game and the


    Important: All participants are expected to follow the guidelines given by the organization

    and to abide their decisions during the events.


    In case of questions about the rules of the game please use one of the following means to

    obtain an answer:

    - the rulebook

    - the supplemental book

    - the official errata (accessible at the public laptop during the event)

    - the forum on our web site

    - an email to the organization

    It is also possible to ask your question to the organization during the events.

    Collective clear-up

    At the end of every event we will collectively clear up the materials. The organization will

    hand out crates in which the materials can be stored. Each crate has a label saying what

    materials should be put in which crate. When in doubt where to put something, please ask a

    member of the organization. Mind that a full crate is a full crate. If scenery is crammed in the

    crates the scenery might get damaged.

    Only members of the organization are allowed in the storage room.


    Any trash is to be put in the trashcan (near the bar) as soon as possible and used dishes to be

    cleaned immediately. This way the gaming area will stay clean and neat. Because the

    materials on the playing tables stain easily, food and drinks should under no circumstances

    be placed on them. Empty tables, shelves along the walls and the bar can be used to place

    the food and drinks on.

    Please do not put things like bags in the walkways and only place models and other playing

    materials on the gaming tables.

    Please close the gate behind you when you pass through.

    Alcohol and drugs prohibition

    Alcohol and drugs are not allowed in the building and on the surrounding terrain.

    Participants and visitors are not allowed to consume alcohol and use drugs during the event

    both on the terrain and outside of it, including Saturday evening. Also, participants and

    visitors are not allowed on the terrain if they are under the influence of alcohol or drugs. It is

    prohibited to smoke inside the building and next to open doors. Smoking is allowed on the

    terrain and outside of it.


    The organization is not liable for damage or theft of properties of participants or visitors.

    All participants are expected to have their own health insurance and carry the insurance

    card with them, in case an emergency happens.


    A separate FAQ can be found on the website for each of the following elements and will be

    updated regularly.

    -Lord of the Rings

    -Warhammer Fantasy

    -Warhammer 40k

    Army construction

    8th edition

    An army must be constructed using all official rules except the following:

    --The special End Times Magic, stated in End Times Khaine (page 8-17) will not be used

    during this tournament.

    -No characters or single-model units allowed with a point value larger than 750 points.

    -No more than 1600 points can be spend on the first army.

    -No more than 2000 points can be spend on the second army.

    -No more than 2400 points can be spend on the third army.

    All three armylists need to be constructed using the same armybook and have the same

    General and Battle Standard Bearer but may receive additional upgrades in larger games).


    All official Games Workshop and Forgeworld publications and Errata

    When units appear in multiple publications the newest version takes precedence. New

    publications can be used at the next tournament that is at least one full month after the

    official release. If a player does not have the correct publication with him/her there will be a

    50% reduction to all tournament points earned.

    Instead of the physical books, the players may also use digital versions on tablets or


    The End Times books often have the same named characters as regular armybooks. Due to

    the storyline of End Times the stats and special rules are often different from those in the

    armybooks. When using either the armybook or an End Times book these units are

    considered different units for the newest publication rule stated above. However, as stated

    in the End Times books certain units and items may be taken from other sources.

    If a player does not have the correct models there will be a 50% reduction to all tournament

    points earned.

    Official models

    Official models for the unit, provided that they are equipped with the weapons and wargear chosen in the army list and need to be based on a base of the correct size either the base the model is supplied with or the most recent version is used. All similar models within the army must be based equally.

    Counts-as Models that are not the official model for a certain unit entry but have similar size, and need to be based on the base provided with the newest version they represent (or have the same size themselves in the case of models without a base). These may be models from the same or different game systems and/or companies or may be scratch-built. Weapons and wargear need to be recognizable on the model but may be represented in a way that is not standard (e.g. a jumppack is represented by wings), provided that representations are consistent throughout the army. In cases where placement of weapons is relevant (e.g. on vehicles and fortifications) the weapons must be placed approximately correctly so as not to be considered 'modelling for advantage'. All similar models within the army must be based equally.

    Unit Fillers

    Models that are used to complete the size of units. These can be other models or themed bases of larger size to substitute 2+ models. Empty bases are not allowed. At least 51% of a unit, including the full first row, must consist of the correct models (of either of the above two categories).


    Proxy Models used as stand-in that are unequal to the correct model in terms of size, base or weapons/wargear. In tournaments these types of models are not allowed and the organization can ask you to remove them from the army or to replace them with the correct models if available. The organization will be less strict in upholding this category if a new player is building up his first army, but this must be made known in advance.


    Players score game points and points for the preparation.

    At this tournament there are 3 prizes to win:

    -1st place

    -2nd place

    -Best Army

    Example armylist in appendix 1

    Armylist to be used

    Players need to have an armylist with them during the games. This copy must at least

    contain the same elements as the one handed in, but may contain more elements,

    depending on the participants wishes. This copy may also be a digital version on a tablet.

    If an army has hidden elements (such as Goblin Fanatics) they do not have to be stated on

    the armylist used by the player during the event. (They do have to be stated on the armylist

    handed in to the organization).

    Painted armies (0-5 points)

    0 Less than half of the models are painted and based

    2 More than half of the models are painted and based

    5 All models are painted and based

    Gamescores (1-20 points per game)

    Different elements such as killing units (each 250 points worth of destroyed units is worth

    one point) and claiming objectives will lead to victory points. This will vary between

    scenarios. The difference in victory points between players will result in the final score.

    Sportsmanship (0-5 points)

    One of the elements we hold in high regard is the sportsmanship of the players.

    At the end of every round every player receives a form with questions about the previous

    game, the army and the opponent.

    At the end of the tournament, the average score a player receives is used and displayed.

    Penaltypoints (-50%)

    The organization can give a participant a penalty for a variety of reasons such as invalid


    Best Army

    During the first round, three players will be nominated by the organization to display their

    army during the lunch break on a battlefield of the players choice. All players will vote on

    their favourite army for the Best Army award during the lunch break.

    Painting and conversion techniques, overall look and details are all taken into consideration

    when nominating the three armies.

    Only fully constructed, fully painted and fully based armies can be nominated for the Best

    Army award.

    Allocating opponents and tables

    The organization determines the table and opponent of each participant for every round. In

    the first round however the opponents and tables will be determined randomly. From round

    2 on the swiss system will be used. In addition to the pairing provided by this system we

    want to enlarge the diversity of games in the following ways: participants will play against as

    many different opponents as possible, and will play on as many different tables as possible.

    Participants who are known to play with other participants regularly outside of our events

    will be placed together as little as possible (if new to our events, please inform the

    organization about this).
