This event will be capped at 24 players.

Rule Books:
The Warhammer 40,000 SEVENTH Edition Rules will be used.

All codices, supplements, dataslates, and formations will be allowed in this event unless otherwise noted. If you choose to use something from a digital supplement or dataslate you MUST provide the organizers and opponents with the rules for your unit upon submission / presentation of your army list.


1. Each player must bring a BATTLE-FORGED army consisting of 1500 points or fewer (1475 min), in accordance with these rules.

• Armies may be constructed from a maximum of 3 Detachments (as defined in the 40K BRB, Formations = Detachments).

• Forge World and Imperial Armor lists that are 40k Approved will be legal for this event.
If you make use of FW or IA models or units, you MUST submit the rules and point cost for them when you send in your list.

• Super heavies and gargantuan creatures are not allowed.

• The following fortifications may be taken as listed in Stronghold Assault (You must have the relevant rules available for your opponent upon request:
• Aegis Defence Line
• Imperial Bastion
• Wall of Martyrs (WoM) Defence Line
• WoM Defence Emplacement
• WoM Bunker
• WoM Firestorm Redoubt
• WoM Vengeance Weapon Battery
• Promethium Relay Pipes
• Skyshield Landing Pad

2. All models must follow “What You See Is What You Get” (WYSIWYG). All weapons, war gear, and so forth must be represented on the model unless otherwise approved (see number 3). Your models do not need to be painted but they do need to be FULLY assembled.

3. Pictures of conversions or "counts as" models must be emailed to the Tournament Organizer. There is an expectation that your conversions or "counts as" models are "hobby quality." No "toys" will be allowed.

4. We will require that each player submits his army list to a Battleground Tournament Organizer on or before Feb 20th (roughly a week before the event). We ask that players email their lists to as soon as they are finalized. We are going to do our best to check every list before the event begins.

5. If illegal units or other rules violations are found in a player’s army list, at a minimum, the models in violation will be removed from all subsequent play. In addition, tournament points may be deducted and/or award eligibility may be forfeited. If in doubt, please ask for clarification in advance from a Battleground Tournament Organizer.


• Competitors will participate in three (3) games over the course of the day. In each game, you will play a scenario and record the outcome of the battle on your results sheet. Each round you will play a different opponent.

• Each round will last 2 hours. Players may begin playing as soon as they have finished deployment.

• In the first round, players will be matched up randomly. After the first round, players will be matched up according to current rankings in the tournament (based on the number of points they've scored) e.g., the team in first place will play the team in second place and so on. We will try our best not to pair players that come to the event together or regularly play each other in the first round. If a team receives a BYE they will be awarded max points.

• Slow playing will NOT be tolerated. Players are expected to complete at least 4 rounds. If you suspect your opponent is slow playing PLEASE notify a Battleground staff member as soon as possible as we can not do anything about alleged slow play after the fact.


The SEVENTH Edition Rulebook and all FAQs will be in use for all games and will be the definitive guide for all rules. The time limit for each game is 2 hours and players will have 10 minutes to deploy their armies. At the end of this time limit, the round will be called; players will need to finish the round as quickly as possible.

The scenarios can be found here:

What You Need to Bring with You:
-Your (hopefully painted) miniatures
-At least THREE copies of your army list
-Rulebooks and any additional books you need
-Pen and paper
-Dice and templates
-Tape measure
-Something to transport your army from table to table

Store Credit Awards will be given out to:
Store credit is good for any product in the store and all subsequent events. It never expires and will be saved for you.

Best General
Second Best General
Third Best General

Best Appearance - Army (individual)

Smokin' Boots - You got crushed... and you deserve an award for your epic failure.

A player may only win one award. The Best Appearance awards may go to any one player participating in the event, regardless of their finish / other awards.

• A note on the Appearance award - We will award the individual who we feel has the best looking army. We will use a scoring rubric that looks at painting, basing, display boards, and various other "extras" to determine the winner.

Please email with any questions.

Anyone interested in getting in a game at the Abington store this saturday 1/7 at 5pm?

   I am an experienced DM with an existing crew of great guys.   We are about to start a new campaign and I'm looking to add to my party.   I favor story/character depth over hack and slash...but trust me there will b blood..

   If you think your a good role player, who is tired of the same old stories..and is looking for that game to jump into with both feet... a character who has braved the frozen tundra to take shelter in the town of Frostbite... perhaps hunted by the famed Mithril Knights..  or maybe your an assassin In The foggy city of Flint who must decide should you stay loyal to the Fist, a guild who has held sway over the city for decades or should you join Handsome Dan; a recently freed prisoner who looks like Christopher Walken who is a new brand of criminal, that has the Fist shook ?

Email me.    I'm looking to tryout new people in a quick campaign AT battleground for Sunday the 18th and a few sessions after

« Last post by Earl on November 16, 2016, 04:27:08 PM »
I'm looking to see if people would be interested in getting together for a weekly Shadowrun Crossfire Missions run. Each week a string of missions would be set forth as the nights Run, with groups trying to finish the Run. Extra Karma and bragging rights to those who can make it through to the Payday. There would be no fee to play, though spots woule be limited to 4 or 8.

Anyone interested post here so we can hammer down a night or nights that would be amenable to people.

Hey everyone im going to be running the Shadowrun Missions which are like DnD's old living campaigns whith new modules each month to run through. This month we'll start with

Chasin' the Wind

It’s been nearly twenty years since disaster struck the city of Chicago, transforming it into an urban hellscape, and some people now believe it’s suffered enough. The Governor of Illinois has initiated and ambitious plan called Project: Takeback to reclaim the feral urban jungle. What’s more, he’s put money into the effort, and that’s the language every corporation on Earth understands. Suddenly, the race is on as the megacorps scramble to claim pieces of the Windy City. They’ll be butting up against the dangers of the Containment Zone and each other, so they’re going to need all sorts of deniable assets. The shadows of Chicago are coming back to life.

In Chasin’ the Wind, what starts as a simple run into the Containment Zone gets more complicated by the minute, and before the night is over shadowrunners might encounter rogue assassins, a feral runaway, and a mysterious massacre in the heart of one of the worst urban areas in the world. But if they survive, there’s more than just pay waiting for them at the end. There’s pizza—Chicago-style.

One session starting at around 6-630, for people. I'll be there and hour early if pople would like to create a character for it.
