I'm just working on finishing my thousand sons army ready for the Tasmanian State Tournament. The Things you get points on are battle points, sportsmanship, composition, painting. You also get points on Army selection. What does this mean and hows does the points for it work.
what that means (at least for a rogue trader tournament that i've gone to) is that your army composition makes since fluffwise.
like an all infintrary infiltrating imperial guard list with three basilks. or something similar. it just means that if you look at the army and ask your self 'wtf?'
the points break down 6 for good army comp that makes sence and has a good theme. 3 for decent, some weird choices. and 0 for a totaly unfriendly composition or min max type stuff.

The tournament should have made available exactly what their composition score means. I'd suggest contacting the organiser - they should be able to tell you what you need to know.
Having an army and not owning a rulebook is like owning a car with no steering wheel.Originally Posted by amishcellphone
Usually "composition" scores are based upon percentages of each element of your force.
for example: is the troops section at least 45% of the force in points, are there no other element that represents more than 25 to 35%.
These guidelines are set up to try to discourage people from bringing an army like: 9 obliterator, 4 heavy, 1 tooled out prince, and two 5-CSM squads. Not that it would be a "good" list, but it certainly would be annoying to play against.
As Rork mentioned, those scores and guidelines are usually published ahead of time on a website for the event, or they should be made available at request.
Hope this helps.
