Rules look good and mission 3 will be a blood bath lol
I think I’ve paid and will now spend the next month and a half trying to choose a list :blink:10/05/2016 at 8:22 PM #15814Anonymous
Yes it will make those formations illegal, another case of a restriction for broken stuff affecting a lot less broken stuff10/05/2016 at 10:01 PM #16366Anonymous
This still allows me to take the Ravenwing strike force as long as I don’t have more than 2 identical units so 2 HQ’s 2 speeders etc?
So that would apply to the Deathwing version & the GK nemesis SF?
Just looking for clarification I may fetch a Cad anyways but have plenty of variety for a 900 point strike force if it’s allowed,
Do we get our Warlord traits?11/05/2016 at 12:48 AM #16370Anonymous
The last time we ran this type of event, each person had a warlord and a trait so 2 traits per side but they only effected your own 900 point force. This also meant there were 2 slay the warlord VPs per side too.11/05/2016 at 6:43 AM #15815Anonymous
For warlord traits, we will use the way Andy has described, that is something I overlooked originally. I will add an FAQ to the main post over the next couple of days.
As for the strike force, if it doesn’t go against any restrictions laid out its fine, you won’t be able to take anything that isn’t in the strike force (assuming it is a formation) and won’t be able to get a 2+ re-rollable cover.11/05/2016 at 1:38 PM #16371Anonymous
The Ravenwing & Deathwing Strike forces while giving the odd buff are primarily replacing the Take Sammael as warlord and get your bikes as troops that was seen in the previous codex or take Belial etc for the Deathwing + they lost Obj-Sec so there technically worse (Ravenwing Buff not withstanding).
The Grey Knight version of the SF is basically the only way of running them effectively the buff being rolling for reserves 1st turn
Do you want to add the moving terrain Psychic power alongside Invisibility, for comp purposes moving buildings around seems a bit unmanageable?11/05/2016 at 1:41 PM #16372Anonymous
Oh and if there’s an odd number I’m happy to stand down for 1 out of the 3 games rather than have someone miss out completely.11/05/2016 at 4:12 PM #15816Anonymous
There is a contingency for numbers in the pack, so you won’t need to stand out of any rounds.
The new building movement power, which I’ve tried a fair bit of recently, isn’t overpowered and rather creates some really interesting tactical scenarios. I see no problem with it atm, I will continue using it and if it’s stronger than I expected I’ll look into it, but for now it seems fine.11/05/2016 at 8:31 PM #15817Anonymous
Can you sign me up please
Thanks16/05/2016 at 10:59 AM #16373Anonymous
Hi could you put Issac down as well please, I’ll sort out ticket buying
Greg – Dark Angels
Luke – Ad-Mech
Issac – Tau
As an aside we tried the 1st mission with Dark Angel + Grey Knight Force v The Ad-Mech + Tau
The game was very even with some bad dice rolls and poor decision making from from me swinging it in the Ad-Mech Tau favour with a 12 – 8 win on T7, will give the other missions a go with some different armies but the format looks as though it will produce a fairly close set of matches.
We applied Warlord Traits only to the the Force it was attached too and treat all forces as allies of convenience, only thing we did share was the Psychic dice pool16/05/2016 at 11:59 AM #16374Anonymous
Just to confirm folks, you will need to purchase tickets in order to be signed up for the event. We cant reserve places for people. There are plenty of tickets still available though17/05/2016 at 10:03 PM #16390Anonymous
Thanks for the reminder Gray. Ticket bought.
Won’t be playing Eldar, those beasties have been sold to a Spaniard, never to be seen again on UK soil. So it’ll be my Raven Guard, or, if I were one to believe in fate i’d almost bring all the Chaos Space Marines that I own, as I have EXACTLY 900 points. Thanks, Tzeentch.05/06/2016 at 6:57 PM #15818Anonymous
Remember to buy your tickets, we have only had 5 tickets purchased so far. As Gray said, spaces can’t be reserved though there are still plenty of tickets available.05/06/2016 at 9:09 PM #16517Anonymous
