I'll update the first post as well, but really quick (on my way out the door), here are the final updates to the rules:

Special chars only with permission.
300 points max spent per unit.
Hellheart banned.
True LOS is in effect per the book.
Shooting capped at 3 warmachines per army (2 for ones count as 1 choice) and 30 ranged infantry/cavalry (thrown weapons do not count), or a max of 20 ranged infantry/cav who have the Multiple Shots rule.
Beastmen are added to the list of armies which get 1200 pts.

Are you allowed similar items from armybooks? Like, lets say 2 people on one team took Warriors of Choas, can both of them the same items out of the book? What about the BRB?

Can't take 2 of the same army anyway. I can't say for sure about BRB items, but if I had to guess I would say you can take multiples.

Each club participating must field a four man team, each using a different army book.

And our readin' n' comprehendin'!

Common Item question needs to be answered though. Should be 'one per 4 man team' unless you want both sides having two crowns on the field every game.

Also there needs to be a popular uprising against the Fools who think Brets deserve free points. It was dumb three months ago, it's even dumber now ~ especially for a doubles event where any perceived shortcomings can easily be made up by teammates.

I would argue that without lord choices (mostly) and the other restrictions combined with different armies compensating each other's weaknesses there is no need for bonus points whatsoever. Bretonnians definitely don't need help (have you looked at recent tournament results?).

I've added the "one copy of a common magic item per team" restriction.

Andy, you can call me dumb and a fool as much as you want as long as you feed me beer. How about you field 1200pts of Brets and I field 1000 of daemons, and we play a game?

The balance between books is always debatable. The points variance is in part to encourage variety and seeing some of the less-seen books fielded.

Lol. It's not You I'm calling a fool. Group think seems to have somehow decided they're no good and somehow seem to keep missing the fact that they're *shock* winning events and/or placing highly even without bonus points.

They don't need bonuses in singles events. They need em even less when their partners get all toys that folks think they're lacking.

But hey sure, lets Vassal it up. 20% extra at a point level that plays to Bret strengths? Rawr :)

I can see Beasts and possibly Wood Elves. I'm just not seeing the logic in awarding Brets 20% bonus points ignoring current consensus that they're in decent shape as is. I bet money that the hosting team has Bretonnians. ;)

All the same, very much looking forward to this. Fun format!
