How To Prepare For A Warhammer Tournament - 7 Top Tips!

Preparing for a Warhammer tournament can involve a combination of physical, mental, and strategic preparation. Whether you are participating for fun or for competitive reasons, there are some things you can do to get the best from the event. Here are 7 top tips to help you prepare for a Warhammer tournament:

1. Familiarise yourself with the rules and the tournament format:

Make sure you understand the rules and regulations of the tournament, including any restrictions on army composition, unit choices, and points limits. Also, learn the format of the tournament, such as the number of games you will play and the time limits for each game.

2. Prepare and experiment with your army list:

Spend some time working on your army list, and try out different combinations of units and weapons to find the ones that work best for you. Make sure your list is legal according to the tournament rules.

3. Get plenty of practice:

Practice as much as you can before the tournament, both against other players and by playing solo games. This will help you develop your strategy, learn how to use your army effectively, and get comfortable with the rules.

4. Study your opponents:

Research the armies and tactics that other players are likely to use in the tournament. You can do this by reading online forums, watching tournament videos (like the ones on my channel lol), and talking to other players.

5. Stay focused and calm:

It's important to stay calm and focused during the tournament. Take breaks between games, eat well, and stay hydrated. Don't let losses or setbacks get you down, and stay focused on your overall strategy.

6. Bring everything you need:

Make sure you have all the materials you need for the tournament, including your army, dice, tape measure, and rulebook. Make a check list and prepare your army and materials the day before the event so you can get up and go in the morning. 

7. Have fun:

Remember, the most important thing is to have fun! Enjoy the experience of playing in a tournament, meet new players, and learn from your opponents. Tip 7 is the most important for me, and at my events I work hard to make sure everyone has a fun day above all else.  


Take part in a tournament: 

I hope these 7 top tips help you prepare for a Warhammer tournament. If you are thinking about taking part in a tournament, I definitely recommend you go for it!  Getting together with other like minded tabletop wargamers is the best way to spend a day, and you'll have a ton of fun.
