Army Composition

Adjustments to Army Composition (use of allies, point total, sideboard restrictions) are still being finalized. These will be settled before September 1st. 

Armies can be taken from any of the lists contained in the 3.5 Edition Kings of War Rulebook (Big Red Book released October, 2022). The Most recent Twilight King list will also be in use. The TO reserves the right to restrict a new Twilight Kin list if it released too close to the event. Clash of Kings 2022 changes will also be in effect. Each army can consist of no more than 1995 points.

2022 Rulebook Update Optional Rules: This tournament WILL allow the use of the Withdraw rule with the associated -1 to hit in melee in that turn. This tournament WILL allow the use of Allies. See the Optional Sideboard rules below for details. 

Optional Sideboard Rules:  If you wish, you are allowed to bring two sideboards (A and B), to be combined with a Main Force with the following rules:

Army Selection and List Deadlines

When you register, you must indicate the army you intend to play. This can be changed ONLY up until the 32nd player has paid. Once the tournament is full and paid, all armies are locked in place, and the date for the random draw will be set (tentatively scheduled for December 23rd). Your army list (main army and 2 sideboards) will not be due until AFTER the random draw has taken place. Yes, you will know your first 3 opponents and the armies you will be playing against BEFORE army lists are due!

Army list deadline will be at 11:59pm on Friday, January 5th, 2024.

When you submit your list, please submit 3 lists: Your 1500 point main force, your 1995 point army with Sideboard A, and your 1995 point list using Sideboard B.

Note that only the full 1995 point lists (Main Force + Sideboard A, Main Force + Sideboard B) need to be fully legal (unlocks, repeated units, etc.).  The 1500 point Main Force is not restricted in any way as long as each 1995 point list is legal.


World Cup Special Characters

The World Cup took place November 2022, and to celebrate this quadrennial event, every army at Bayou will have the ability to bring a special character based on some of today’s best players in the game of soccer (or football for you UK types, or futbol for lots of others).  The .pdf linked below lists all the Soccer Stars you can choose from.  However, you can only choose 1 of the 8 characters to use throughout the weekend.  Please tell us which character you are using when you submit your list.  You can model your Soccer Character on either a 20mm or 25mm base.  And yes, there will be a prize for the best looking character!

The Soccer Special Characters will be updated for this tournament and released in October. The link below are the characters used in 2023 for reference.
