Welcome to the brand-new Blood and Glory Warhammer Championship Rules pack. With a new venue, comes a new event organiser. Mr Ben Curry has handed the reigns over to yours truly, Mark Wildman. I will be the main organiser for the AOS championship and will be around all weekend, so please come and say hi!
Arrival on Saturday morning:
The Blood and Glory Championship will be held on Saturday 4th and 5th of November.
The Roundhouse, Derby College
I cannot express to you how different this venue is! It is an absolutely unique venue. I have played Warhammer all over the world (Europe, Australia, USA) , and only Warhammer World itself compares, this venue is something special!
When you arrive at the event, you will be asked to email in a copy of your army list and register with the event organisers. At this point you will be given a table number and an opponent.
Army List Submission:
Before registration please send a copy of your army list to:
Please send a copy via the Warscroll Builder App which you can find at:
You must use the ‘List Summary’ in the body of an email. Please ensure your Name, Alliance, and event is on the title of the email
EG: Ben Curry – Legion Of Azgorh – AoS Championships.
(NB – this is very important so we can search your name easily in our database when awarding tournament points)
There will be a guide on how to do this on the Blood and Glory website closer to submission date.
What to bring:
6 Paper copies of your army list – to give to your opponents. Please don’t use electronic copies.
Dice, tape measures, glue, pen and paper etc.
We shall be using all of Games Workshop Warhammer Age of Sigmar rules, including all FAQ’s, Forge World Warscrolls and the new Generals Hand Book 2017 will be used at Blood and Glory.
We shall be using all of the rules within the “Matched Play” section of the GHB2017.
All distances will be measured from Base to Base and not from the models unless BOTH players agree not to.

You must fulfil the first requirement in both painting and basing for your models to play at the event. Any models not painted or based will be removed. There are 31 points in total up for grabs in painting but a maximum score will be capped at 25.
All models must have a round or oval base and must be WYSISYG. The proxies are not allowed.
All models must be carrying the appropriate equipment and armed with their correct weapon. For example a unit who has the option to carry shields or great weapons, and your models have shields, then you need to arm them with shields and not great weapons. However, I do encourage conversions which will show off your hobby skills and modelling ability. So if you have a converted unit, say a unit of knights normally armed with lances on the warscroll, but your models have been converted into axes, then this will be fine, just explain it to your opponent.
We do like to see the GW stock models, however, if you have a great conversion, please bring it along. However I will not accept unconverted models or simple head/weapon swaps as proxies for other special characters. If in doubt, please email before the event to avoid disappointment.
Part of what will make Blood and Glory a great event is the chance to see you models on Warhammer TV, Warhammer-Community.com or White Dwarf. In order to have the chance for to be featured in any of these you must only have Games Workshop models.
This also means your opponent for that game might miss out on a chance too so please consider this in advance.
The painting judge has the right to decide the final outcome of a score and the points your army receives. For example, an army carry tray will not be considered as your display board.
- Entire model is painted (more than just an undercoat) – 1 point
- Washed/dry brushed – 2 points
- Highlights – 3 points
- Painted: single/multiple colours – 1 point
- Textured: flock, sand. – 2 points
- Sculpted base: raised, miliput, scenic effects – 3 points
- Painted: single, multiple colours – 1 point
- Textured: flock, sand etc – 1 points
- Scenic: raised up, buildings, scenic effects -1 points
Cohesive – The army is all tied together and looks like a cohesive force – 5 points
Conversions – the army has at least one converted model. This can range from simple head swap to re-sculpting using greenstuff – 2 points
Free hand – at least one model has some freehand – 2 point
Wow – judges discretion. Does this army look great! Regardless of painting/basing/sculpting ability does this army look great on the table – 2 point.
WYSISYG Paint Job – Models are painted in the correct colour scheme for the army they are being used as (i.e. Celestical Vindicators, Barak-Zifin) – 2 points
Objective Markers – 3 Painted objective models/markers. – 2 points
Winning Blood and Glory.

Are you unsure your army fits the painting criteria?
Have you found a complex rule that feels needs a judges decision?
A contradictive rule which hasn’t been addressed within the GW FAQ?
Anything else controversial? (AoS related…)
If so, please contact me before the event, I do not want you to come to the event, with a really funky idea/army list which you then find out is illegal, or we rule against! Contact me prior to the event to avoid disappointment.
If you have any event enquires please do not hesitate to email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org or on Twitter @markthebeastman.
