Underdark Prerelease Tournament
D&D Miniatures



Dwellers in the dark approach on October 29 with the D&D Miniatures Underdark prerelease tournament. Whether you battle for good or evil, law or chaos, prepare to build a 200-point warband from two Underdark Booster Packs in a day of skirmishes and prizes. This event is a sealed (limited) format. Every participant receives a promotional miniature from Underdark with an alternate paint scheme. The top players also receive Underdark Booster Packs. Space is limited to forty participants per location, so grab your friends and sign up today.

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 Underdark Booster Packs.
  • Read the rules governing sanctioned D&D Miniatures tournament play.
  • Prepare to build a warband and cast your opponents ruin upon the battlefield.

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.
  • Epic versions of creatures are not allowed in 200-point Limited play.

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 Underdark Booster Packs
2nd Place gets 4 Underdark Booster Packs
3rd & 4th place get 1 Underdark Booster Pack each
