BOWLING GREEN

Bowling Green is within driving range of 3 regions, besides the Southeast where it is based, and should draw a range of great players with drastically different playstyles.  We are set for 40 players, but can accommodate many more if needed!

Bowling Green is a college town so there are plenty of nearby options for food/drinking!

Kings of War Historical Tournament

Beginning at 6:00 PM onFriday, Robert Brandon hosts the third SE Kings of War Historical tournament of the 2018 season.

This event will follow these rules:  
  • 5 hour rounds (6-7:30; 7:30-9; 9-10:30)  
  • 1500 Points  
  • Historical Lists Only  
  • No Allies No Mythical Units

Our primary goal is to have fun with these rules, so we have no hobby requirement. This means that fantasy proxies are allowed (use your Brotherhood as Crusaders!), we will not enforce MMC (one elephant on a base is fine for an elephant horde), and paint is not required.
That said, we will be awarding a hobby prize, so if you come with an appropriate army, you have a chance at some loot.

During this event, we will play the following scenarios: Control, Pillage, Dominate Two prizes will be awarded at this event:
  • 1) Tournament Champion: Based on a 15/10/5 scoring system with attrition bonuses
  • 2) Best Army: A player vote will be used to determine the favorite army at the event.

We will use the CoK 2018 rules where possible.

FAQ:
  • 1) What versions of the scenarios should we use? We will use the versions found in the most recent CoK book. Unit strength and scoring will be determined using the method included CoK.

  • 2) Are skirmishing units able to claim objectives? For this event, we are going to assume they count as individuals in all ways. Therefore, their US will be 0, and they will not be able to claim objectives.

  • 3) Can historical units use the spells and items from CoK? No.

Portal Wars

Portal Wars is a modified King of the Hill game where the survivor of each game is teleported to the killing fields of another battle.


The last army standing after all others have been destroyed will be the winner. Each game is started on a 3x3 table

Every turn of this event is played at the same time throughout all tables. The TO will give a signal to start the next turn after all players have had a turn.


Army Composition

1000 point army list plus The Colonel special character. Allies and Living legends may not be used in this event. Historical Armies are allowed.

  • For this event you may always buy units labeled Troop regardless of unlocks.


Victory Conditions

Route opponents entire army. Or Have your Colonel in base contact with a portal when the opponent’s Colonel has been routed.

As soon as a player has met either of these conditions they have activated the portal that will take their army to the next battlefield. The player will yell“Activated” and the TO will confirm.

The losing player will be out of the event, while the survivor will take the units left standing from his match (plus their Colonel) into the next turn.

If one of your units is routed then it is routed for the rest of the event(other than your Colonel, which will resurrect in your next encounter if your army continues).

At the beginning of the next turn the recently victorious player will deploy what is left of their army from the last game (now at full health) into another battle that is still going on, turning the match into a 3v3.

They may not deploy closer than 6” from any enemy force and must start with the back edge of each unit against the table edge of their choice. The new player will take the first turn when the game starts back up.


There is no set amount of turns, the game will continue until there is only one army left in the event.


TO for the event will be Taylor Lee
