Warhammer 40k Karnage Kup Rules!

Find all the information you need for our upcoming 40k Karnage Kup Here!

The Karnage Kups are our club’s annual competitive tournaments that we run over a set period, allowing players 2 weeks for each round to play their game against their opponent.

The tournament will consist of 3 rounds using the swiss system with randomly selected Eternal War scenarios with a set number of objectives. These will be rolled, recorded and announced by the organisers at the 20th Birthday Bash on the 28th of September.

Note that the tournament will use the updated rules for matched play, included these two updated rules; Players roll off to see who goes first, the person who finished setting up first getting +1 to their roll & Troops units gain the ‘objective secured’ rule.


2000pts, Battle Forged with a maximum of 3 detachments. All units in your army (with the exception of UNALIGNED) must have at
least 1 Faction keyword in common e.g. IMPERIUM or CHAOS.
Publications in use: All current and in-print Warhammer 40,000 Index books and Codexes from Games Workshop and ForgeWorld, publications released after September cannot be used.

Army lists will need to messaged to Adam or Ali by 5th of October, which will be posted up along with the  after the 1st round match ups later that week.


The tournament will officially begin on the 12th of October, allowing 2 weeks for each game to be played. As before we’ll be using the swiss tournament system to determine match ups for the 2nd and 3rd rounds.

“But what if I can’t  get my game in within the two week period?”
No worries, in the event players can’t get their game in within the two weeks, the round period will be extended by another week. However if the game isn’t played by then the game will be simply recorded as a draw.

To help players arrange their games and post their round result we’ve setup a social group on Facebook. If you wish to take part but can’t make it down to the club before hand just ask to join the group and post a request to be added to the player line up before the end of the month.
