What is Trouble at Mill?
Trouble at Mill is a 1500 point Age of Sigmar Tournament with a few twists to make it a really fun event.
- No unique units allowed.
- Randomly generated scenarios each round
- Randomly generated spot prizes each round
- Randomly generated ways to win the spot prizes each round
At the last Trouble at Mill players won everything from a packet of Haribo to a Vanguard Maggotkin box for being the first player to do things like:
- Lose your general
- Lose a unit to Unleash Hell
- Complete a 12" charge
So you may come last but you might still walk away with more prizes than first place!

Tools of War: Attendees are expected to bring their army, dice, a tape measure, all relevant rules publications, and at least 6 physical copies of their army roster (one for registration and one for each opponent). If you are using any electronic devices to carry your official rules references, please ensure they are charged and available for reference at all times.
ARMY CONSTRUCTION AND PAINTING
You will require an army of no more than 1500 points to play at this event and contain no Unique or Understrength Units. When building your army, use all the most up-to-date Warhammer Age of Sigmar rules found in the Pitched Battle Publications list found in the Generals Handbook 2021. Battletome updates found in White Dwarf can also be used (for example the Son’s of Behemat battalion rules). We will also be using a “No FAQ, no play” policy for newer released Battletomes. If there is no FAQ for the book, you will need to either use the old book, or a different faction .
Army lists should be presented in an easy to read format, including your Grand Strategy, all relevant weapon selections and unit upgrades that should be selected prior to a game with limited extraneous information.
Modeling and Painting
Playing exciting, atmospheric games with finely detailed, painted miniatures is intrinsic to the Warhammer experience. With this in mind, all miniatures in your collection must be fully assembled and painted to at least a Battle Ready standard.( More information on Battle Ready can be found at Warhammer-Community.com ) Each model must accurately represent its entry on your army roster.
Many players “scratch build” or heavily convert elements of their model collection, and these activities are a hallowed part of Warhammer hobby history. For the sake of fairness, any conversion should be comparable in size to the most current version of the model they represent. You may not gain a benefit from converted models, but may incur penalties.
At the end of each game, use the provided score sheet to record your results and provide them to the judges table. You will also need to input these results via the BCP App. This can be downloaded from www.bestcoastpairings.com or your App store.
The player with the most Victories will be the winner.
A player will be awarded 4 points for a Major Victory, 2 points for a Minor victory and 1 point for a draw. In the case of a tie the players will be split using the following tiebreakers:
- Major Victories
- Minor Victories
- Battle Tactics completed
- Grand Strategies completed
- Total Victory Points scored in games (these are the cumulative points gained from objectives, battle tactics and grand strategies, not kill points from units destroyed)
Lists must be submitted by Sunday 8th May on the BCP app

A Note on Lateness
Should you arrive late to Round 1 of the event, you may lose your spot to a person on the Waitlist. Assuming your spot is still available, you will be paired with any other late arrivals (again, where relevant) with a mandate to complete your game in the original Round time. A subsequently incomplete game may result in point penalties. If you arrive late to the first round on Day 2 of the tournament, you may incur a penalty.
We expect all players to see the game through to the very end and not concede, as doing so can impact tiebreakers and, ultimately, the final rankings. In the unlikely event that a player does concede before the game has reached its natural conclusion, then the conceding player earns a loss and zero points. The winning player records a major victory and maximum points for their grand strategy and battle tactics for the remaining rounds. Of course, if you have some kind of emergency that means you can’t proceed, just let us know as soon as you can.
The Warhammer Age of Sigmar hobby is multi-faceted; including social, gaming, and artistic components.
With that in mind we will award the following prizes:
- Best General 1st, 2nd, 3rd - these will be the players with the best record
- Favourite Army (player voted)
- Best Painted Army (judge voted)
- Favourite Opponent
- Spot prizes throughout the games
1st, 2nd, 3rd and Best Painted will each win a trophy and £35, £25, £15 & £25 of vouchers respectively.
Your opponent for your first game will be randomly determined. Subsequent rounds will be organised using a Swiss system. If you ever find yourself facing off against a player you have faced previously, please contact a member of the team.
A Note on Results Reporting. Many players around the world happily participate in independently-run, often local ranking systems. Where relevant (such as the ITC), we will submit results sorted by Generalship for these standings.
Terrain will be set out on tables prior to Game 1. Before each game please adjust the terrain to follow the rules for objective and terrain placement. If you have any issues with terrain placement please ask the staff for help. If the terrain is based, then that base is used to define if a model is Wholly On Terrain.
Every effort should be made to allow players to use their faction terrain that they have spent time to paint. If faction terrain cannot be placed then please speak to a tournament organiser who will adjust the battlefield to accommodate the piece. This only applies to Faction Terrain that is set up before the game begins.
