In an effort to ease questions about what is and is not allowed with respect to codices, units, and formations for Astronomi-con we have simplified things somewhat from our inclusive list of codices and supplemental rules.

Astronomi-con has always been about including as much of the 40k universe as possible within the scale and scope appropriate to the points level being played with the goal of encouraging narrative thematic fun games for all participants.

To address the questions of what units and codices are allowed, we have opted to do away with the 30-day restrictions on new releases.  Currently it seems new units with their rules are made available almost every week via White Dwarf, in advance of a codex release.   If a unit has complete rules available then they are permitted.  If a unit is released with an incomplete set of rules – such as referencing special rules or wargear that has not yet been released then that unit will not be permitted.

All currently published Codices, Dataslates, Formations, Supplements, and their associated FAQ’s will be permitted unless otherwise noted on the Ruleset page.   This also includes Forgeworld Imperial Armour books, Experimental rules, and their related FAQ’s. Black Library hosted rules are also permitted.

Astra Militarum Tempestus

Lots of new content from GW here in the past few weeks.  Codex: Miltarum Tempestus which features units from the Schola Progrenium and Codex: Astra Militarum which details the forces of the Imperial Guard.

These new books present some content that we will be reviewing to see what things may need clarification in terms of how they will work at Astronomi-con.

Codex-Astra-Militarum

Astra Militarum content under review:

Warlord Trait: Old Grudges – allows the player to choose one 40k Codex and the Warlord and his unit have preferred enemy from all units from that codex.  Reviewing if preferred enemy should be set to one codex in advance for the course of the tournament.

Tank Commanders – how points for their tanks will be handled for Composition purposes.

militarum-tempestus

Militarum Tempestus content under review:

Airborne Assault Formation – for the purposes of preparing reserves, how do units from this formation factor in.

Ground Assault Formation – Do Taurox Prime units in this formation count as Dedicated Transports, or as Fast Attack when scoring Composition.

Dave Violago, a long time pillar of the Winnipeg 40k community, and multi-award winner from past Astronomi-con events has written about the most recent Astronomi-con Winnipeg tournament in his own club’s blog:  Fawcett Avenue Conscripts.

In this first article, he recaps and highlights many of the armies at the event.
