there is no "general discussion" board so i figured i would post this here and hope for an answer.
what are the common point allowances for tournaments? i thought it was 1750 but some people said that wasnt right.
just a basic question, thanks for any replies.

I wonder if you are destined to be forgotten. Will your life fade in the shadow of greater beings?
I typically see the following
With 1500 and 2000 being by far the most common. Of course, these are "tournaments" at the local store (actually called leagues), so they're not really official.

Most tournaments around here do 1850, and lots of other tournaments that I'm aware of shoot for 1750. 2500 is the standard amount for the 'Ard Boyz tournament, I believe.
Typical point sizes for games are any of the above, then 1000, 1500, and 2000 as well, at least around here.
Also, you can use General Hobby Discussion as a general board; there are special tags you can give posts, such as 40k, WHFB, Non-specific, etc.
Varies by area, group hosting the event, etc.
For instance, the tourneys I host are typically 2,000 points.
It would behoove the average tourney-happy player to be able to field between 1500-2000 for any given tournament.
Ard boyz are 2500, as mentioned ... but they're just whacky to begin with, and generally favor people who enjoy going into a tournament where you know exactly what you have to do in every mission well in advance, and can tailor a large group of models specifically to the pre-set missions. Hardly a tourney at all, in some books

As it has been said, it varies depending on your local area, but I'll list some bigger ones anyway.
'Ard Boyz- 2500
Grand Tournament- Although I'm not completely positive, I believe this was changed to 1850, and used to be 1750.
Local Tournaments- These vary completely depending on where you are, the average being either 1500 or 2000 (1500 being dominent in my area) but I have seen everywhere from 750 all the way up to 2500.

Yeah, 1750, 1850 and 2000 seem to be really common... So common that Astronomi-Con intentionally limits its points to 1500 for one excellent reason:
At 1750 and up, you've got no trouble getting the troopers in, plus your shiny toys from Elite, Fast and Heavy. At 1500, you've got to stop and make a choice - The glory boys, or the grunt troopers? The thought processes that go into fitting an army to a slightly restrictive points limit makes for some very interesting forces, year after year.
