I'm sure the IA and forgeworld stuff marked with the 40000 stamp are going to be more "official" the closer we get to 6th. And, given that its a new revenue stream for GW, i would lay money that the 6th rulebook has a section saying just that.

I'm happy to go either way though for now.

I think you'll have nmore than enough interest with the original rules as set out. If some armies can't be played.. then they can't.. I dont think it's a big deal.

You could always make an exception if a person really realyl wants to paly, they only have one army.. and that army is restricted somehow.. but I dont think that problem would arise.

I think we'll just go pretty standard with the scenarios because we should should see some interesting lists. Expect 2 objective-y ones and 1 killy one.

@Mike You are correct, each landraider variant has its own entry so someone could take one of each. Landspeeders only have one codex entry (not counting the storm) so only one unit of those. I do like your idea for an annihilation tournament. But I think that would be a good idea for a stand alone event. It would be interesting to see people build armies if they knew kill points would be the only decider. I suspect Grey Knights would walk away with it, but I always suspect that!

So just to be clear. I'm going to allow 2 of each troop entry UNLESS the army only has access to one troop entry in which case I will allow 3. As mentioned in an earlier post, units that are not in the troops section but can be fielded as troops are still restricted to 1. Now let's start talking dates. Is the 4th good for people, or do we want it a little later in the month? I'll have to check with the Den to get confirmation of this date too.

That *SHOULD* work for moi. Not sure what's going on at den I know they have several events coming up (Warmachine and FoW stuff, and something else.)

Only thing I'm not avaliable for is Fam Day weekend. Pretty sure my wife will do something evil to me if I play then.

How are we counting transports?

For example, Can I have multiple rhino's?

Dedicated transports do not occupy force organization slots and are unaffected by the restrictions.

We'll go a little later in the month then. How's the 12th for people? Tell your women you want a day to yourselves for Valentine's Day.

Can do.

I was about to ask that about dedicated transports. I guerss Orks could still do a battlewagon rush. One squad of meganobz in a wagon, one squad of nobs in another, and 2 squads of boyz with trukks.

Sure Scott. Orks could take 3 battlewagons, 2 as dedicated transports and 1 as a heavy support choice.

So true man lol. Prices are good in Feb so I'm pretty much out. Probably doing ship outs on Saturdays. But we'll see, I think if there are premiums at Cargill and XL I'll hold off tell March. Probably will be fielding Space Marines or Grey Knights.

I was very confused when someone told me I had "Family Day" off when I moved here. Thought it was a joke like "Love Day" or something. Trying for a trip to Edmonton this year.

I supposed I should try and do something for Valentine's Day, if only so March 14th keeps it's status.

Tim, as I craft a list, I have a question.

If I take Anrakyr on a Catacomb Command Barge, would I be able to take a Surfboard Lord on a Command Barge as well?

Is the "Multiple Dedicated Transports" option valid for Necron HQ?

Does Anrakyr count as an Overlord?

Am I breaking the spirit of this by having two surfboard lords, one being a named character?

Anrakyr is a seperate Codex entry from a Necron Lord so no issue there. You're good to go!

I think troops should be limited to 1 until you take one of every troop choice in your book. Im thinking of some books which has a grand total of 2 troop choices and also at my Imperial Guard which has many options for troops so the limitation would force the selection of other troops choices and some more creative infantry platoons.

Its been a long time but I dont think my competitive tourney list changes much at all for highlander cause
valkyries and vendettas are two separate choices, and veterans which I put into them are troops so I can take 2
all heavy supports can join up multiples into platoons of 3
everything else in the codex is so good you already try to take 1 of everything!

Another thought would be to limit multiples of standard transports, but some more though on this idea should be made by someone more familiar with the assault armies of today


I would love to take my ogryns or rough riders in this event but they arent finished and they are packed away...
