Italian Team Championship rules


Team Subcription and composition

Players from any country may apply to enter a single team of exactly 4 players to the Italian team championship.  Teams are to be represented by a team captain, who will be the organisers normal point of contact for his team.  He is responsible for all communications and should ensure that they are forwarded to all team members.  He is also responsible for ensuring that all details relating to his team entries are correct and that the team name and Captain are clearly indicated on the entry form(s) and Score Sheets.

Each team will comprise of 4 players, one playing in each period. The player for each period must be nominated in advance and may not being changed throughout the tournament. No team may have more than one player fielding the same army (possible when it crosses the date periods) i.e. book and list number must not be the same

List Format

The subscriptions and the army lists must be sent before 21th february 2016 to my email: lorenzomele @

The tournament has single list format. Army lists must clearly indicate:

1.      Name and contact details of the player, including the address (on the document itself please, not just in the file name, since file names often do not show when a batch of lists are printed)

2.      Team and period (1-4);

3.      Army name, book, number (on the document, not just the file name);

4.      Date;

5.      General, geographical or other option selected if appropriate;

6.      Climate and aggression (since in some cases options exist);

7.      List and total of elements allocated by command;

8.      Cost by element type;

9.      Elements, element equivalents and break points per command;

10.    Elements, element equivalents and break point for the army;

Army lists must be sent to the list checker by email within the deadline choosen by the organization. For every day being late, the team will lose a point on the final classification (applied after the fourth round is over).

The army list errata avalaible there will be used:

Game Rules

The ruleset used is DBMM 2.0 plus the Clarifications that can be downloaded there:

The tournament will have 4 rounds

The whole DBMM 2.0 ruleset, English version, is used.

Weather and time of the day can be not used if both players agree.

The armies must have no more than 400 AP and miniatures must be in 15mm scale.

Players must supply their own terrain pieces, which must be to an acceptable standard. Additionally all figures must be representative and must be painted and based to an acceptable standard. Umpires will have the discretion to remove unsightly or unrepresentative items.

The swiss system will be used for seeding; players from the same nation (if not Italian) will not be matched for if their captains ask so at the start of the tournament.

Every game will last for 3 hours and 30 minutes plus 1-15 minutes of random factor, known just by the umpire.

When the game start is called, if a player arrives to his table later than 20 minutes (without warning the Umpire and the organization and without a valid reason), will lose 2 points to the player who had to wait for him. If later than 45 minutes (without warning the Umpire and the organization and without a valid reason) will lose the game 0-25.

Any incorrect list discovered after a game has commenced (after “aggression” dice have been rolled) must be corrected prior to the next match.

Each round the scores of the four players of the team will be added to have a team score. There is a cap to the team score, that cannot be above 80 or below 20 each round

The team pairing will be made using the swiss system after the first round. The first round the games will be decided randomly.

In case of ex equos in the final classifications, the higher classment position will be gained by the winner of the direct confrontation (if any), or by the player/team with the higher position at the end of the previous round.

When the game time will be over, the umpire will call "end game". The game will suddenly stop, except that the a combat phase started wull be finished. The players will calculate the scoring and give it to the umpires.

Other Rules

Umpires are choosen by the organization and will be presented to the players before the tournament; we allow the use of Umpire-Players.

Admission to the competition is at the sole discretion of the organisers and their decision on all matters is final. An application to enter denotes acceptance of the rules. 

Umpire and list checker will be Lorenzo Mele.
