Escalation Rules

Post  System Commander on Tue Dec 15, 2015 12:14 pm

Ok. I think we'll use these for the escalation to start with.

0-1 hq
1-6 troops
0-1 E
0-1 FA
0-1 HS

Or by unique codex detachment

No unique units, imp knights, allies, lords of war, or forts.

No vehicles with front, sode, and rear armour totalling more than 34
No models with 2+ armour
No models with more than 3 wounds
No warp charge 2 or 3 powers allowed

Also keep in mind the lists you make should be "Scout force" themed.

Every 2 weeks we'll go up 250 points. At 1000 point the restrictions are lifted and you can make a standard list.. no restrictions. Of course.. even at 1000 points try to take reasonable lists.. lists you wouldnt mind facing yourself.

Let me know if you have any questions!

Is "unique codex detachment" inclusive of formations?

I'm currently pondering the Destroyer Cult, since I have that mostly painted up already. I figured everyone had already had their fill of the Canoptek Harvest.

While fun and possibly fluffy be aware that at 750 that formation is realllllly reallllly good and against some people you very well might table them.

YMMV

Nope.. we'll just start at 750 and go up 250 every two weeks. Thatll take us to 2000 for weeks 11 and 12.

Ive found in the past while 2 weeks of small games are fun.. 4 weeks can be a little daunting.

And yeah.. i think id really encourage to stay away from the formations if possible. You typically are getting an advantage geared for a larger army.. at 750 might be pretty significant.

If theres something pretty reasonable.. bring it up but otherwise lets just to stick to standard CAD, for the 750 point games.

Sorry I must be confused. I actually am trying to just make a legitimate "scout-like" list and am just wondering if I can use a character like Boss Zagstruk (Character with rokkit pack).

Just to clarify, flyers are legal provided they meet the other requirements?

Yup.. id say so. The last time we ran it there werent any flyers around though.. so we'll have to see how it pans out.

My gut says they might be too strong fo 750.. but in willig tomtry it out.

OK, to clarify, we're starting with 750 point lists and just arrange games independently, correct?

You bet. Then, you can report your games to me via the reporting form and get your league points collected.

Top 8 in league points get to play in a single elimination play-off.

Dammit, that ruins my 750 list I already had planned.

EDIT: PS Formations or no? I think we should just say no to everything rather than judge formation to formation.

I don't think anyone needs to use a formation at 750, sans codexs that require it (harlequins, skitarii).

I don't NEED a formation. I just want it. I CAN QUIT ANY TIME I WANT.

Actually, with the "short" CAD Harlies and Skittles can play no problem (no HQ requirement) Only codexes in the dust are stuff like Inquisition, Legion of the fanned, and Knights (Sorry, Mike!)
