As Tournament Organizers, we are ultimately responsible for the way our events are run. This covers all aspects of the tournament, from something as simple as how many points each player is allowed to use when creating their armies, to what restrictions will be enforced such as disallowing multiples of the same formation or limiting Lords of War.
Some Tournament formats such as the ITC produce their own FAQ’s and impose their own limits on abilities and limits for their events.
Astronomi-con while generally very open to using existing units and rules sometimes has to put a few of its own ‘fixes’ in place to address rules oddities, or potentially abusive combinations.
As such we have two such items listed on our FAQ page.
One item gives new rules for the Lucius Drop Pod produced by ForgeWorld.
The second restricts the ability of units embarking in Allied transports and Independent Characters joining Allied units.
These changes have been made in the interests of fun thematic gaming and to downplay potentially abusive combinations.
