Not a 'rules' question per se, but I wasn't sure where to post this.
I haven't played 40K or any tournaments since 3rd edition,. With that being said, do they still judge on army composition? If so, what is the current scoring system? I know it used to be: more Troops than any other category, less than 25% for HQ, Elite, Fast Attack & Heavy Support, etc.....
Thanks in advance.
It all depends on the tournament / organizer. Some judge comp on a (semi-)objective checklist, others have it opponent judged, and some don't have any comp.
In the past few years the 'official' GW system has just been a pure softscore granted by the opponent + a flat 1 point if you have over 30% troops.
They piloted a much more specific checklist based system at some Gamesdays this year. It will probably trickle down if it was successful. I haven't heard or seen any posts from anyone who was there and used it.
Australia has a very healthy comp environment while America does not. You know your list will be judged the same if you play in Sydney or Melbourne, January or July; in America many tournaments do not run a comp system and there are a few (not many) that run terrible comp systems.
The 1500pt tournament I'm playing in in two weeks takes 5% of your score away if you don't have 600pts in troops and 5% of your score away if you have 3 of the same named non-troop choice. It has no effect on who wins the tournament, it just changes the army lists.
