Warhammer 40k 9th Ed League Packet:

~This League is designed for experienced players looking for a challenge and/or players looking to practice for high level play like GW Opens & ITC Events.

~This League will have an open play period that will culminate to a play-off bracket in May/June.

The purpose of this packet is to create a standardized rule set for league play using the current edition and evolving rules of the 40k game. This is to provide a clear understanding of what you can expect when you play at Muse Comics & Games, and the way that the league will be organized and structured.  Our mission as organizers is to encourage players to have FUN, centered in the Warhammer 40k hobby.

Each player will need to provide a copy of their army lists (Point cost of models and upgrades included) as well as all the essentials they need to run their army, dice, templates, measuring tape, the appropriate FAQ, etc.  We suggest exporting txt-based lists (battlescribe, ect.) to your opponent. Players are expected to know their army well enough that they can find rules & list specifics in GW print should your moves, plays, special abilities or point values be questioned.


OPEN PLAY Season: (April 7th, 2023 thru May 21st, 2023)

~Open play means games can be played at any time in-store or at home during the open play period of this season!!
~Games just have to be reported to us in-store, over the phone, or email.

  • 9th edition rules set.
  • Ark of Omens Missions randomly chosen each game.
  • Tables/terrain during open play “should” use the provided table layout & terrain. However, if both players agree to terrain rules and set up before the game they may set up a boar however they agree. If players cannot agree then the GW recommended table set-up must be used.
  • Y.S.I.W.Y.G. Player’s armies and miniatures must be modeled to include any upgrade equipment and/or weaponry that the figure has paid to use in the game. Examples:  Power weapons, heavy and medium weapons like Lascannons and melta-guns, vehicle weapons like Hunter Killer-Missiles, etc.  If it cost points it should be represented on the model.  Vehicles must be fully modeled to display all its upgraded weaponry.
  • Painting is not required but as stated in the Grand Tournament book players with fully painted and based armies get 10 victory points.
  • Horde armies must have some way of distinguishing individual units. This can be color coding, conversions, decals etc.
  • Forge World models and rules may be used if they are approved models and/or rules for use in GW open events. (Battlescribe & GW 40K App list legal units)
  • Conversions models are allowed but full proxy and “lets pretend” units and models are not allowed.
  • Armies must be Battleforged and up to 2000 points and follow all the army construction rules from the Ark of Omens rule sets.
  • Structures/terrain features on the base/outline of terrain count as line of sight blocking on the ground floor. (example: Models may shoot and be seen if they are on the base/outline of terrain unless they are behind a terrain structure on the ground floor of that base/outline.)
  • Players score their best 4 games played during the open season of the league to set their standings for bracket play in play-offs.
  • Players can only play the same person twice during the open play portion of the league.
  • Players must score at least 3 games to qualify for the play-off finals brackets.

Play-offs: (Seeding begin May 22nd to May 27th)

  • Once open season of the league closes we will create brackets based on open play standings.
  • Top 2 players of open-play get a round 1 bye in the bracket play-offs.
  • Players that wish to participate in the play-off bracket must submit their play-off list by MAY 27TH.
  • Play-off games MUST be played with GW recommended terrain & table set-up (listed below)
  • Play-off games will NOT be timed. This is the finale to a great edition. Lets really enjoy these last moments of 9th edition. 🙂
