Per the matched play rules, armies must be battle-forged and you cannot create an army list containing more than a total of three of the detachments listed in the main rulebook on Pg.242-245. All current Games Workshop & Forgeworld 8th edition Warhammer 40,000 source material may be used to build your Battle-forged army. The most recent version of Chapter Approved is in effect for ITC standard events.


For a player to be eligible to play, all models in their army must be painted to a 3 color minimum and based. In order to be on stream your army MUST be fully painted and based. This means you can NOT win the event if your army is not fully painted.

If a full army is not up to the standard 3 color minimum the player will NOT be able to play in the event.

If a single model or unit is not up to the standard 3 colors that model or unit will be removed from play.

If this policy is broken in anyway you will receive a yellow card.

Primer counts as a color. Clear bases such as those found on skimmer models do not have to be painted and/or based in order to count as finished.

Basing can consist of a simple texture such as flock, or painted a solid color such as black, or consistently based on a material such as clear acrylic.

All models are expected to be WYSIWYG to a reasonable standard. Exceptions will be made for themed units or armies.When using detachments in your army that contain models with different Faction Keywords, then they must be easily distinguished from other, similar faction models.

It is not acceptable to have an army with multiple detachments of Space Marines painted in the same scheme wherein some of them are using different faction keywords.

Using a proxy for a model violates our policy.Using a reasonable substitute to “Counts As” another model, does not violate our policy.
