Rules (for all Scenarios)

Warbands are 6 points in size and special characters are allowed.

The tournament will have 3 rounds games

Each game will last for 6 turns or 1.75 hours (whichever happens first) ules the scenario specifies otherwise. Because of the tight timelines we will stick closely to this.

All rules are used and interpreted from the Dark Ages Rule set including on Cavalry / Horse fatigue. However Cresent & Cross specific warband or abilites will apply.

If you want to use However Cresent & Cross rules amendments then you can agree with your opponent BEFORE staring your, and remember this is meant to be a friendly comp.

For each scenario game the second moving player will roll 3 SAGA Dice at the start of the first moving player’s turn, and allocate them onto his Battleboard. They can only be placed in Boxes for Shooting Reaction, Melee Reaction and/or Combat Pool. Any remaining on the Battleboard at the start of the second moving player’s turn must be removed before he rolls his SAGA dice. This is to represent the defender preparing for battle

Starting player. Unless specified by the scenario, roll a die and add the number of Saga dice (don’t roll them) your warband gets. The winner chooses who goes first.
