As you prepare for battle, here are a few tips to speed you along:

  • Use the venue list below to locate a tournament site near you.
  • Contact the tournament organizer and register for the event.
  • Ask the tournament organizer if there is a fee to participate, and the cost for purchasing your Aberrations Starter Set and Deathknell Booster Pack.

Warband Construction

D&D Miniatures Handbook

The details for constructing your warband are covered in the D&D Miniatures DCI Floor Rules and the Miniatures Handbook has lots of helpful information, but here are the basics.

  • The point total of your Limited warband must not exceed 200 points
  • Sealed (out-of-the-box) play has no faction rules. Any creature can be used from any faction.
  • Warbands cannot exceed twelve creatures, regardless of point cost, except where specified by special abilities such as Minions or Summoning. See Limited play in the tournament rules.

Assault Scenario

You must assault enemy territory and maneuver to keep your opponent's warband out of your territory.

Victory: Victory goes to the first player to score victory points equal to the warband limit: 200 points in a 200-point game. There are two ways to score victory points.

  • Eliminating enemy creatures: As in the Standard scenario, you score victory points equal to the cost of each eliminated creature.
  • Occupying at least one tile in the enemy's half of the board: At the end of each round of a 200-point game, if a player has one or more creature on a terrain tile that is entirely on the opponent's half of the board, that player is awarded 10 victory points. Each player can earn up to 10 victory points each round in this way, but never more than 10 in one round. A creature that takes up multiple squares is considered to be on a terrain tile if any part of the model is on that tile.

Prizes

1st Places gets 6 Deathknell Booster Boxes
2nd Place gets 4 Deathknell Booster Boxes
3rd & 4th place get 1 Deathknell Booster Box each
