WARHAMMER 40K: MINOR LEAGUES

Warhammer 40k MINOR League Packet:

~Minor Leagues is designs for new players, beginners, and players getting back into 40k after a long break

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.
