Judging: There will be an active judging stance at this event. While the judge(s) will not be looking to intervene, they may step in to adjudicate disputes and help speed up rulings. Calling over a judge to help with a ruling is encouraged, and will not be held against anyone.

Dice: We ask that players use one type of dice so that opponents and judges can clearly see what numbers are showing. If your dice has a symbol for 6 or 1, it must be consistent across all your dice (exception for wound markers, etc.). Dice must be rolled in a location visible to your opponent. We strongly recomend the use of dice trays, and they are available for purchase at the shop.

Painting & Conversion Rules

Torchlight's Standard about Proxies & Conversions: Torchlight is proud to be home to a great community of hobbyists. We encourage participants to play with the models they have worked so hard to build, paint and base! The most important aspect of this matter is that both players are consistent and clearly communicating with their opponents, what each model is. Regularly reminding your opponent about proxies is an honour you owe everyone
at the tournament. Afterall, who wants to win a game because their opponent didn't know who was who because of a model you brought isn't clear. With that said, 3D printing is becoming a challenge to Torchlight Games & Hobbies as it undermines our business model, and may cause free gaming spaces to change in the future. Please support us through purchase of offical models whenever possible!

Proxies: “Proxies, Conversions & WYSIWYG Proxies are not allowed unless pre-approved by the T.O’s. Conversions are an excellent way to show off your modelling skills and are very much encouraged. In all cases, WYSIWYG is strongly encouraged but is not mandatory.

Tournament Organiser Jaydan Simpson’s Proxy Notes: I am happy with any model that is clearly represented as long as you okay it with me before hand and try and get it painted,– please note for line of sight purposes we will have to use some better judgement. If you are unsure, please contact me via email at Jaydanjasonsimpson@gmail.com“
