Venue & Accommodation
The location for the Boudica bowl is a working men’s club in Huntingdon. The address is:
The Montagu Club
14 Hartford Road
The venue is right in the heart of the town with an abundance of parking at the front and rear of the building. To reach the building you need to come off the ring road at the turning just before the bus station, follow the road round past the main high street and the venue will be on the left hand side, being a one way system is it best to take the first left into the car park in case there are no spaces at the front.
Huntingdon train station is only five minutes away from the town centre and the Bus station is only a two minute walk to the venue.
Accommodation will be solely up to the entrants if required. There are Travelodges down the road at Brampton services and Fenstanton, or there are various B&B’s in the town. A google search will bring up many nice places.
The red X is where the Montagu club is (not to be confused with the tag which is in fact someones house!). The arrow is where you need to turn in to reach the Car Park at the rear of the club.

Boudica Bowl will be using the Competitive Rules Pack, which is available from:
All 24 teams, including Slann, Chaos Pact and Underworld can be used (rules for those teams can be found here http://www.thenaf.net/files/NewTeams_LRB6.pdf).
Each coach will get 1,100,000 gold pieces maximum to spend on their team.
All inducements are allowed, except for mercenaries, special play cards and wizards. Star players are allowed, but you must have 11 rostered players before you can purchase them.
Your team may feature non-GW miniatures but they must represent the race and position which is easily recognisable. Teams must be based, numbered and feature at least three different colours (after all you could win a trophy if they are painted well).
Before registration, a team may pick from one of the following skill packages:
- 6 normal skills
- 4 normal skills and 1 double
- 2 normal skills and 2 double
No player may be given more than one skill, and no stat increases are allowed.
Before game 4 starts, 2 more normal skills are available. These may not be given to players who gained skills before the tournament started.
This is a resurrection tournament, so there are no SPPs, and injuries do not carry over between rounds. No winnings are used and fan factor will also not change between games. Undead and Necromantic teams may raise a zombie for the current game, but will not get to keep them for the rest of the tournament.
Each round will last approximately 2 hours. We will give out regular time reminders in the hope we don’t overrun.
Boudica Bowl will be a six game tournament. The first round will be a random draw, then rounds two to six will be drawn Swiss style. We will endeavour to make sure that you do not face the same opponent twice.
Points are scored as follows:
- 10 points for a win
- 5 points for a draw
- 1 point for a loss
In addition, teams can gain up to 6 bonus points per match:
- 1 per touchdown, to a maximum of 3
