We will be using the most current General’s handbook for points values and the most recently updated errata, FAQs, and commentaries published before the 6th of August 2024. Any updates made by GW (FAQ, GW subfactions, warscrolls, etc) will not be in effect if it is released after the first of August.
No newly released faction or battletome, that do not have an official GW FAQ and errata before the 6th of August, will be allowed. Battletomes which are only available through a limited release boxset will not be allowed.
Furthermore, there will be tournament specific rules that apply, which can be found later in this tournament pack.
Make sure to bring everything you need for your games, such as measuring tools, dice, a set of six objectives, and so on. You will need to bring at least one easily readable copy of your list. In addition, you will need to submit your list beforehand. The deadline for submitting your list is by midnight on the 6th of August. All lists must be made using Warscroll Builder. Please upload your list to the Best Coast Pairings Players app as well. The lists will not be visible to other players until they are unlocked by the TOs. The submitted lists will be checked by the TOs and will be unlocked on the Best Coast Pairings Players app one week before the first day of the tournament. If any portion of your list is found invalid, kitn23 reserves the right to amend your list independent of your input, and or to force losses upon you if errors are caught once play begins.
We ask that you bring finished models to the table, this means painted models with a minimum of three colours, and a fully painted or flocked base. We at King in the North would appreciate it if all tournament participants complied with this requirement, as we have put a great deal of time and effort into creating the fantastic tables you will be playing on, and so have the players you’ll be facing during this event. So please help us make this event as great as possible for everyone involved.
You may not gain a benefit from converted/count as models but may incur penalties. For example, a modelled taller model may be more easily seen while gaining no LOS benefits for its extra height. If you want to use converted or count-as models, you must seek permission from the Tournament organizers, please contact us at email@example.com or contact one of the TOs using messenger. If you do not obtain permission for alternate/count-as models and units prior to the event, they will be removed from your list during games.
The tournament will be using the Best Coast Pairings app. It is recommended that everyone participating in the event downloads the app and familiarize themselves with how the Best Coast Pairings Player app works beforehand. Lists can be submitted through the app so that you can see the other player’s lists during the tournament as well as see pairings as they are decided. To register for the event search for King in the North in the Best Coast Pairings app. Using the app is recommended, but not required, and anyone not wishing to use it will have their information and results entered manually by a TO.
If you stop by Friday (which we thoroughly recommend) we will be throwing an awesome BBQ! The venue opens at 17:00, as does the Bar. There will also be tables ready for pickup games, Warhammer Underworlds, Warcry, and other board games. Or simply just come hang out, have a drink, and eat meat.

Prize ceremony 1600-1630
At the current time Kitn24 will be following the AoS 3.0 ruleset, the most recent GHB (S23-24), and most current set of FAQ’s and Errata.
The following rule changes and clarifications will be applied to and used at King in the North 2024. Exceptions will apply if said rules are overruled by an official FAQ, Errata, or Commentary published after this Competition packet.
Only full rounds, in which both players have taken a turn, will be used for scoring. If necessary, the games can be extended slightly into the break to achieve this.
We will do our best to make sure nobody plays on the same table twice.
The battlefields will be set up by the tournament organizers. The rules for setting up battlefields from the GHB will not be in use. Terrain pieces that have warscroll cards will not use said warscroll cards (does not apply to faction terrain). Both players must agree to any piece of terrain being able to be garrisoned.
Army specific terrain must be on your list if used. The footprint must match the GW kit.
Trees can be removed, and models may move freely on the spaces around the 3 circles, but models starting on or within the 3 circles, or moving onto them, must subtract 2 inches from any moves unless they can fly
All models must be based on the appropriate bases according to the GW basing chart. Any exceptions must be approved by the TOs.
Maximum Size refers to the maximum number of models in the unit as listed with its points values in your army list.
Only abilities that expressly allows, or has received a FAQ to allow, a unit to exceed its starting or maximum size can ever allow it to become bigger than the maximum size. For example, if 5 Deadwalker Zombies have been slain, but due to the Newly Dead rule 6 models have been added so that the unit is now at maximum size +1, no ability can be used to revive any models until the unit is below its maximum size.
Armies must be constructed using the matched play guidelines.
Only the Pitched Battle Publications listed on page 46 of the most recent GHB 2023 can be used.
Battalions, all traits, items, spells, prayers, and all other choices must be marked on your submitted list.King in The North also makes use of additional terrain keywords and effects/rules for our event.
At King in The North certain terrain pieces will have one or more of said keywords/rules/effects, these terrain pieces will be marked by the TOs’ with appropriate markers. These keywords/rules/effects will be in addition to keywords/rules/effects added via the Mysterious Scenery Table, if used by the players.
The Keywords - with their respective rules/effects, is as follows:
Visibility between 2 models is blocked if a straight line 1mm wide drawn between the closest points of the 2 models passes across or over obscuring terrain features. As a clarification line of sight is drawn between two models not units. If you are within obscuring terrain, you can be seen.
You cannot move models over impassable terrain features unless the model can fly, and
you cannot set up or move a model onto impassable terrain features (even if it can fly). Units with fly can move over impassable terrain but must complete the move.
Kitn24 will be following the GHB 2023 S3 and the selected battleplans when it comes to in-game scoring. All Grand Strategies and Battle Tactics must be from the most recent GHB 2023 or your faction's battletome. Grand Strategies and Battle Tactics from the Core Book cannot be used.
In each game the players will score points, which will be used to set up the next game and to determine the winner of the tournament.
This is how you decide the final brackets the players are sorted into before you apply the secondary system. So, all the players who won all their games will be in the top bracket and from then the next system will sort out the placings in each bracket.
Victory Point Difference: Winning Player TP - Losing Player TP
0 VP: 10 TP - 10 TP
1-2 VP : 11 TP - 9 TP
3-4 VP : 12 TP - 8 TP
5-6 VP : 13 TP - 7 TP
7-8 VP : 14 TP - 6 TP
9-10 VP : 15 TP - 5 TP
11-12 VP : 16 TP - 4 TP
13-14 VP : 17 TP - 3 TP
15-16 VP : 18 TP - 2 TP
17-18 VP : 19 TP - 1 TP
19+ VP : 20 TP - 0 TP
Note that if you have the Players who are all 5 - 0 sorted by wins and secondary scoring. If there is still a tie, then tertiary scoring will come in effect.
Total Victory points across the players' games. If this is still a tie, then use strength of schedule will come into effect.
Only full rounds, in which both players have taken a turn, will be used for scoring. If necessary, the games can be extended slightly into the break in order to achieve this.
Incomplete games, conceding and no-show:
A goal of tournament play should be to finish a game in a timely manner. In order to encourage this at King in the North points will be deducted from the score of both players if five rounds have not been completed within 180 minutes. The judging team will stop all play at this point, and players who are not done with their game will be deducted points on a progressive scale. For the first game this will be 0 points, 2 points for the second game, 4 points for the third game, 6 points for the fourth game, and 8 points for the fifth and final game.
This is a measure intended to discourage slow play and is not meant to punish new players. If one player is clearly slow playing, contact a judge.
If a player concedes before 180 minutes of play, contact one of the judges. The opponent will score the maximum number of points, while the player who conceded scores whatever secondary objectives the judge decides it is likely they would have scored.
If an opponent has not shown up for a game, immediately notify a TO. The TO will attempt to find a new opponent or a ringer opponent for the match. If it is not possible to find a new opponent, a chess clock will be put on the game and started on the missing player's time. Once his time runs out, the missing player is considered to have conceded the game.
Kitn24 expects every player to behave their best. You are attending one of the major tabletop tournaments in Norway, and we run these events for both you and your fellow players. Behavior we find breaking Norwegian tournament standards values may result in penalties ranging from yellow card, loss of a game, or in severe cases being kicked out of the tournament. We will not be implementing any specific code of conduct such as the GW Player’s Code, because there are a few things there we do think are over the top, but we would encourage everyone to familiarize themselves with it. Cheating, deliberately distracting your opponent, pushing them into making mistakes, and anything that goes against a competitive, yet friendly game will not be tolerated.
As of 2020 Frostlords wargaming, alongside Norsehammer implemented a yellow card/ red card system for our tournaments. This involves a simple card system, similar to the one found in football. Starting with a yellow card, which is given for violations of player conduct of a less serious nature. A yellow card will follow a player for the current tournament and the following King in the North and Norsehammer tournament. If a player receives 3 yellow cards a red card is automatically received. If a player is caught cheating or similar severe violations of player conduct a red card is given to the player by the TO. A red card results in disqualification from the current tournament and a ban from all King in the North and Norsehammer events for the next 6 months. This ban is lifted for the following tournament.
Example of yellow card offences:
⦁ List not submitted in time that you have not checked in to the event or given notice that you have dropped out.
⦁ Failure to meet painting regulations.
⦁ Failure to get approved converted models.
⦁ AN attending player does not behave according to what is acceptable social behavior.
⦁ Conceding a match without notifying a TO.
⦁ More to be added about offences.
⦁ Note that all cards will be reviewed by all tournaments that use.
⦁ the yellow cards in Norway. And all tournaments represented.
⦁ will have the option to challenge a ruling made by a T.O. and get.
⦁ Said ruling overturned if other T.O.s do deem the ruling wrong.
In response to problems with a fair division of time chess clocks will be allowed at kitn24 if both players agree to use one.
Kitn24 will not be providing chess clocks, so if you wish to use one you will need to bring one yourself. If either player has brought a chess clock and wishes to use it then the following rules apply to the game:
•The first ten minutes are used for greetings, exchanging information about the armies, info on the chess clock and review of these rules and so on.
•Each player will start with 85 minutes on the clock.
•The clock starts as soon as the pre-game roll off for deciding sides has been made.
•All dice rolls and pauses are made on the respective player’s time. Pass the time when your opponent deliberates or makes dice rolls in your turn.
•Each player is responsible for their own time. It is a player’s right, but not their opponents’ obligation, to make sure that their time is being handled properly.
•Any major rule dispute results in a paused time scenario. The time is to remain paused until a judge is called to the table and resolves the dispute.
•If a player’s time runs out, they are done playing and may not perform any more actions except for those listed below. The only exception is if they are in the middle of moving a unit, they may finish so that the unit is placed legally on the board. Any other action is immediately stopped.
•If a player runs out of time, they may only perform the following actions: 1: Making saving throws and taking a battleshock test if required to. 2: Scoring objectives that they have already achieved or already hold.
Best sportsman award will be decided by votes.
After five games everyone will be asked to vote for the three most sporting opponents, 3 points for your favorite 2 points for the second and 1 for the third. The player with the most votes will win the Best Sportsman prize.
Best Painted Army award will be scored by votes. During lunch on Saturday everyone will be asked to arrange their armies on the tables, and to vote for the three best painted armies in no particular order. The player with the most votes will win the Best Painted Army prize.
The Best painted award will be scored by votes. All participants are invited to bring a single model to enter in the Best Painted competition. During lunch on Saturday everyone will be asked to vote for the three best painted models in no particular order. The player with the most votes will win the Best Painted prize. There are no restrictions on manufacturer or size of the model.
Hopefully any rules disputes will have been covered by this packet or can be decided by you and your opponent. However, if something should arise that needs an impartial ruling, any rules dispute and judging of games at King in the North 2024 will be handled by the Judges team. Judges have the final say on all tournament issues. They can instruct players to begin a new round despite time, force a loss on someone caught cheating etc. Players will not be permitted to “abuse” tournament rules to gain unfair advantages. Individual rules are NEVER binding precedent. As such, should a judge get a rule wrong, that does not bind the event to continue getting it wrong. Respect all judges – They are volunteers.
All lists are due by the 6th of August.
