We are very pleased to announce that our 30k tournament is ON! The name we have come up with for the tournament is "Horus Heresy Reckoning" and we think it is befitting of what we hope will be both a competitive, but fun environment to game in.
The player pack for the event will be launched Friday (i.e. tomorrow). In the mean time, here is a poster that we made this evening. We hope you are interested and look forward to receiving your applications, but do wait until at least tomorrow to read the full player pack before emailing us!
We are proposing the following army construction rules (they are subject to a little tweaking here and there, but should be considered an almost final draft).
The maximum points value for each game is 2250.
Rationale: this value has been chosen to enable games to be completed in two-and-a-quarter to two-and-a-half hours, and to ensure players have access to most of the miniatures they might wish to deploy.
Fortifications are not permitted.
Armies must be constructed using an Age of Darkness Force Organization Chart comprising a legal primary detachment (i.e. Maximum of 3 HQs, 6 Troops, 3 Elites, 3 Fast Attack, 3 Heavy Support, and a single optional Lords of War; Minimum of 1 HQ and 2 Troops).
Instead of taking a Lords of War option, a player may instead elect to take a legal Allied Detachment (Maximum of 1 HQ, 2 Troops, 1 Elites, 1 Fast Attack, and 1 Heavy Support; Minimum of 1 HQ and 1 Troops).
An allied detachment must be chosen from a different 30k faction or legion to the primary detachment. In the case of Word Bearers or Traitor Auxillia, these can be chosen from Codex: Chaos Daemons with the strict caveat that summoning additional daemons is not permitted by any means. Additionally, for daemons selected as allies, no named (or unique) character can be selected.
Players can spend up to a maximum of 25% of their points (explicitly: 563 points) on a Lords of War option.
Players can spend up to a maximum of one third of their points (explicitly: 750 points) on an allied detachment.
No war machine detachments are permitted (explicitly: detachments that are made up entirely from units with armour values, excepting for Questoris Knights).
Primarchs are permitted. If selected, they are automatically the Warlord for the army.
Rites of War are permitted. These must be noted in the submitted army lists.
Relics of the Dark Age of Technology are not permitted.
Shattered Legions are not permitted.
Knights Errant and Talons of the Emperor are permitted.
Titans are not permitted.
Only units in the Horus Heresy and appropriate models may be used.
