What is the diff between a tourny army and a casual play army? The armies section says to specefy if your list is a casual or tourny one. Just wondering if there was a diff in the two.
As far as the list goes there isn't anything different. If it is all legal it is okay.
There are other rules that apply to most tournaments though (and this depends upon whos running it)
In most tournaments that I have been to the army must be fully based and painted.
You might have also heard about WYSIWYG - what you see is what you get.
The majority of tournies enforce this as it helps in recognising what your playing against without having to keep asking the other player what each unit has etc...
What it means is that any wargear that the unit has must be modelled on it.
A pretty obvious example is you wouldn't have a model with a bolter and say its a plasma gun.
But in the end it really comes down to the organiser of the tournament...
Anyone else able to add anything I've forgotten?
Another differance is that the criticisim you recive for a tourny army is different than a casual list.
A tourny list is for winning and winning alone. When you shell out money to play you want your name/army at the top of the list. So the advice you get would be slanted towards the win rather than the "fluff".
A casual list is the one you use against friends, no cheese (unless prearranged), more "fluff" and most of all more fun! So the advice would be more of an army theme base than a bang for your buck type.
Actually, it seems like it is the other way around. Many people like to make all-comer/tourney lists that are "balanced", i.e. weak and with no strong points, and then proceed to cry "cheese!" when they get their *ss handed to them by someone with a list geared toward the inherent strength of their army (assaulty, shooty, mobile, etc.).Originally Posted by Da Springy Nids

A tournament army should be balanced simply because you will be facing many different opponents but that is a different issue all together.
