The one thing that is known: sixteen Ambassadors enter the arena—one leaves. That one brings with him a token of great hope that his faction will have the backing of the Great Ones when the Final War begins.

Rules and clarifications can all be found there, as can the actual Missions you will be facing. All of these should be fully updated by the time registration starts on November 19th.
This is one of the most highly funded and supported tournaments in Washington State, as its previous attendees will attest. It is the signature event for the area and we were able to fill the first bracket within about a day. Therefore we encourage your lordships to be ready to board your starships and register as soon as possible.
The Arena is unique in that every faction is represented just once by its Ambassadors in each bracket, and you will never battle the same faction twice. Not only does this encourage a truer all comers approach, but we have designed the missions to further encourage balanced forces and to be more akin to normal Warhammer 40,000 than the ITC missions allow while still being unique and challenging. Our primary goal is to see the Codex represented in its full panoply to the extent our supereme Ambassadors are able.
Yet this will in fact BE an ITC event and a GT event in all likelihood, for those who are aspiring to the highest rankings among your brethren. Take advantage of this opportunity not only to earn your favor with the Great Ones for the Final War, but also to garner the recognition you so richly deserve among your peers.
We provide the food necessary, so you are disallowed from swallowing other Ambassadors inbetween matches. Drinks and snacks are all there to keep you energized and hydrated so as to maintain your in game focus. Only the very best efforts will avail you in the arena. We expect no less of you, for the future of your entire races may depend on the outcome...
Good luck Ambassadors.

I thought you might enjoy a glimpse into mission one of the tournament. We did a video battle report. I am no expert at such things but the video quality turned out well. Feel free to take a look, as the Grey Knights take on the dreaded Eldar. Lists and such are in the comments section.
It was a fun practice game and it was a fight to the very end.http://40kunorthodoxy.blogspot.com/2016/12/6th-elvensword-ambassadorial-grand.html
