Warhammer 40,000 6th Edition. (FAQs from GW will apply). In the event of any disagreements not covered by the FAQs or Main Rulebook, we will be using the standard "shout for Prim" method of resolving problems. This has worked well in the past and most folks seem happy about it.
Players will be required to bring TWO army lists with them. One list must be made for 1000 points with NO allies allowed. This will be used if you enter a tag team match. The other list must be made for 2000 points with allies allowed, but no second FOC (I.e. you get one FOC and one allied detachment). Tag Team games will use the Allies rules (page 112 of the main rulebook) for how your armies interact with each other. For the tag team games, Tyranids count all other armies at Desperate Allies.
The following army books can be used:
-Any Games Workshop Codex. You must use the most up to date book released before May 2013. (If you codex is released on May 1st or 2nd you will have to use the old one).
-Imperial Armour Armies chosen from these lists:
-Units chosen from Imperial Armour books. - You MUST use the newest version of the rules for any models chosen from these books. (IA: Aeronautica and IA Apocalypse 2nd Edition would be the best places to look).Elysian Drop Troops
Armoured Battle Group
Death Korps Siege Regiment
Death Korps Armoured Battle Group
Ork Dread Mob
Renegades and Heretics: Servants of Slaughter
Renegades and Heretics
Renegades and Heretics: Servants of Decay Armies
Space Marine Siege Assault
Under NO Circumstances are the following allowed:
Super Heavy units.
Any unit listed as being for Apocalypse.
Units from the Horus Heresy series.
If you have ANY questions, please get in contact with me BEFORE the event. I would strongly urge players to read their army FAQs as well.
As most of us are still getting used to 6th edition, this time round we will be using 3 missions chosen from the main rulebook. Missions and Deployments will be announced on the day, but they will all be standard missions.
Winning and Losing
Players and Teams will get points for winning games and for other actions as well.
At the end of the day, the points will be totalled and then divided by the number of players on the team. All points below are PER PLAYER.
Win a Game - 3 Victory Points
Draw a Game - 1 Victory Point
Lose a Game - 0 Victory Points
These points are a one time bonus or for achieving certain goals throughout the day.
Painted Bonus - All models are painted to at least three colours (not counting undercoat): +1 Victory Point
Successfully Seize the Initiative, but choose to let the other player(s) go first regardless: +1 Victory Point
Finish Your Game BEFORE the last turn warning: +1 Victory Point
Achieve ALL 3 Secondary Objectives (First Blood, Slay the Warlord, Linebreaker): +1 Victory Point
Teams should consist of 2 players. Should your partner bail on you at the last minute, you can still play with your 2000 point list.
This is a competitive event, but everyone will enjoy it far more if you try to play with your opponents rather than against them. The purpose of this event is for everyone to have a good time and approaching the game in the right spirit is vital for this. Come along, have fun and play some great games. WAAC types need not apply.
