There seems to be some confusion as to what Spearhead is.
Spearhead is totally separate from Apocalypse. While there are two Spearhead options that allow you to bring one Super Heavy or one Gargantuan Creature into a normal 40K game, we would not be using those two options for this tournament. We would also not be using the Stronghold Spearhead which is for Planetstrike.
Example of Spearhead: if you play Marines and have a Predator and a Vindicator you could choose the Crusher Spearhead which for 15 points (total, not per tank) would allow up to three Tank units (your Predator and Vindicator, skimmers may not be selected) to use the Ramming Speed! special rule: The Tanks that make up this spearhead count as having a frontal armour value of 15 when they ram another vehicle. Enemy units that are tank shocked by vehicles from this spearhead suffer a -1 Leadership modifier.
That's it, you don't need anything different from your normal 40K army, you don't need more tanks or anything like that.
There are Spearhead formations for Tanks, Skimmers, Infantry, Monsterous Creatures, Fast Skimmers/Bikes/Jetbikes, Troops with Fleet, etc. Spearhead is merely a way to slightly change up a normal 40K game for 15 to 90 extra points depending on which Spearhead is chosen.
