I know several of you have asked for details regarding the Bolt Action Tournament at Enfilade 2013, so here are the complete list of rules:

1.  An army shall be 1000 points or less, chosen from official publications or PDF’s from WARLORD GAMES.  No home grown or fan-based lists will be accepted.  A single re-enforced platoon will be available for unit purchases and support selections.  Players creating list from specific THEATRE SELECTORS must specify on their army list.  This list will be used for each of the three (3) games to be played.  No changes or variations between games will be allowed.

2.  Each army will be categorized into one of three (3) groups: Early War 39-41, Mid War 42-43 or Late War 44-45.  Mixed equipment/options (early and late) will always be considered of the latest time period.  Pairings will be made within time period as appropriate.  In all other cases, the earlier time period army will be considered as the underdog.

3.  Each of the three (3) games played will utilize scenarios designed by the Tournament Organizer (TO).  Terrain will be fixed and not movable by the players.  Each game will be played on a 4 foot x 6 foot table (area).  Each game will last for 2 1/4 hours, six-turns or until time is called (which may depend on scenario).  Each game will be worth a maximum of 20 battle points (BP).  Players whose armies are ‘underdogged’ will awarded bonus  BP as an offset.

4.  Each player will supply four (4) copies of their army list at the beginning of the tournament to the TO.  Each player is expected to have (at minimum) a copy of the Bolt Action rulebook, any supplement/PDF necessary for their army, tape measure and dice.  Additionally, each player will email a final copy of their list to the TO no later than 05/13 /13 for verification and approval.  Email lists to socalwarhammer@yahoo.com.

5.  All armies must be painted and WYSIWYG.

6.  The TO will be the final arbitrator of all rules questions/disputes.

7.  Prizes will be awarded for 1st place, 2nd place, 3rd place and best painted.

  1. Looking forward to this, Pat. Thanks for taking charge again. Dean
    P.S. Need to get some practice games in – especially before Trumpeter

    1. Not a problem Mark. Warlord Games has been very supportive of events I have run in the past. This will be no different. Hopefully we can encourage a tournament style system here for Bolt Action in the PNW, in addition to club day play.

  2. When you say a single reinforced platoon, does that mean all of my 1000 pts must be contained within a single reinforced platoon?

  3. I just wanted to take a second to thank everyone who participated in the Bolt Action Tournament. I think a great time was had by all. I would really like to take a second and thank Warlord Games for the wonderful prize support they gave to all that participated. I would also like to thank Guy Bowers of Wargames, Soldiers and Strategy for attending the event, and my buddy Dean Motoyama for helping with the planning, coordination, set-up and take-down.

  4. Pat, thanks for organizing the Bolt Action tournament. Let me know next time you guys plan to play Bolt Action.
