Rules:

For each donated toy, the participant will receive 1 Charity Token for each estimated dollar value of the donation to be redeemed for perks during the Steamroller and in open play. (Subject to the Event Organizer's estimation of value. Appropriate donations purchased “in store” will be worth double Tokens!)

Charity Tokens and Charity Perks:

The Charity Tokens may be turned in to the event keeper to utilize a Charity Perk:

  • 1 Charity Token = Re-roll all dice for a single roll. A roll can be re-rolled any number of times in this fashion. This can be combined with the other charity re-roll perk.
  • 1 Charity Token = Make your opponent re-roll all their dice for one roll. A roll may only be re-rolled once in this fashion and cannot be combined with the other charity re-roll perk. Re-rolling the opponent's dice using a Charity Token may only be done once per match.
  • 2 Charity Tokens = Re-roll any number of dice for a single roll (player picks the dice). A roll can be re-rolled any number of times in this fashion. This can be combined with the other charity re-roll perk.
  • 2 Charity Tokens = Make your opponent re-roll their dice for one roll - you pick which dice are re-rolled! A roll may only be re-rolled once in this fashion and cannot be combined with the other charity re-roll perk. Re-rolling the opponent's dice using a Charity Token may only be done once per match.
  • 3 Charity Tokens = Make a model/unit “Fearless” for one game.
  • 5 Charity Tokens = Permanently increase your army points size limit by 1 for the Steamroller type events. Your army point size limit cannot exceed 10 points over the standard size (before calculating warjack/warbeast points and themed list benefits). NOTE: This will affect both of your lists if you brought more than one.
  • 5 Charity Tokens = Run an “out of faction” Warcaster or Warlock in your army in an Open Play Game or on the Grymch Table (See No Quarter 63 pg 72). The played Warcaster or Warlock becomes “Friendly Faction” for the game.
  • 5 Charity Tokens = Give a non-Warlock/Warcaster model/unit Advanced Deployment for 1 game.
  • 5 Charity Tokens = Extend your Deployment Zone 2 inches for 1 Game. Cannot be used multiple times in a game.
  • 10 Charity Tokens = Remove your Opponents Feat for the Game, which can be countered by said opponent spending 10 Charity Tokens.

Prize Support:

  • Expecting Signed Support from Privateer Press – TBD
  • Mini-Concept Prints
  • Each “Event” winner will get to pick from the pool at the end of the Steamrollers and 90 min competition.
  • At 10:30 we will draw three names from the “bin” of turned in ticket halves.
  • Second Place winners from each event will get a pick at 10:30 after the first three names.
  • Names will then be drawn from the “bin” till either everyone present has a prize or we run out of prizes available.
