Fist i hope i am in the rigfht place to make this question.
I know its a very broad question but the reason for it is that for some time i have read/liston to US players mentioning the use of Forge World models in Tourament and have even once read somewhere else about a guy ising Adeptus Arbites as allies in an Inperial army in a official tournament. I have also heard about a pure Arbites army winning some tournament over there in the states and am just wondering is the rules for european/american tournaments are different or not.
Over here (Ireland) the only army that can take allies is Daemon Hunters (Whitch Hunters hadn't come out yet at the time) and you could only play with armies from Games Workshop (no armoured company as it's a Forge World army).
Can you use Forge World only models in an official GW Tournament????
It depends on the tournament organizer. For GTs the rules are the same as those listed on GW's website, for RTTs it depends. Each tourney will have a rule package they give out prior to the event. Most stick pretty close to GTs but there are often variations. I've never been to a RTT that allowed any Forgeworld only vehicles, such as flyers, super heavies, Russ variations, etc. Most don't allow any of the optional rules, but many do use the Trial Assault Rules. I haven't seen one yet that used the Trial Vehicle Rules. Too many unresolved problems with TVR.
In NC, USA I have been to RTT's that use all the new rules assualt and vehicle and allow forgeworld vehicles but no heavies or flyers. Gts are pretty straight forward too in the states using the same rules from the website, I have seen at the Chicago GT them allow forgeworld vehicles but again no heavies or flyers. I was at Atlanta Gamesday for the matter and there was an armoured company there but I had thought those were illegal to use but he played all the same. I think the big difference used to be in how the judging was done but I believe the Us has changed their system to match the European Judging system.
