World Wide War is a global 40K event created by Spencer Harding and Philip Johnson, the hosts of the 40K Radio podcast. The idea is to set a record for the most people playing in one tournament, by hosting it at different venues around the world on the same day.

This website is for the event in Melbourne, Australia.

FAQ
Q. Why play in World Wide War in Australia?
To have fun, to be part of it, and to sling around 1750 point armies, which is more than the Australian tournament standard. It will also be interesting to try out US GT conditions. Oh, and to prove that we're the best 40K players in the world, of course!

Q. There is no separate category for army composition. Should I be scared?
No. Come along and have a good time. Bring the army that you'd like to field, and that you'd like to play against. Punch in, play some 40K, and have fun!

Q. Do I need to submit a written army background?
No, there is no background component to this tournament.

Q. Do I need to send in my army list?
No, bring two copies of your list on the day, one to hand in, and one to show your opponent.

Q. Can I request a Grudge Match or a Blood Rule?
No, in this event, everyone in the world must fight, whatever the reason!

Q. Where are the details for missions and battle points?
These will be available on the day.

Q. What's a Freeboota?
Freebootaz are listeners who support
40K Radio by paying an annual subscription fee of US $12 via Paypal. There is an additional prize in this event for the highest-ranked Freeboota in the world. So, you don't have to be a Freeboota to play in World Wide War, but if you are, you get a shot at an extra prize. Plus, it's cool to subscribe and support the show.

Q. My question was not covered here!
Please look through the global
World Wide War site or the rules, the answer is probably there.
If not, contact us directly, or ask on the
World Wide War (Melbourne) forum at WargamerAU
