Army Selection

Army Selection

Players must select their armies using the Battle-forged method as detailed in the main rulebook.

Players must select their army with a total of no more than 1700 Matched Play Points.

Players may select up to three Detachments plus an additional Reinforcement Detachment.

Players may include a separate Reinforcement Detachment which may be used in some of their games.  This detachment can have no more than 170 Matched Play Points.  These points are in addition to their 1700 point force and must have separate models from those already included in a player’s main army.
NOTE: Players cannot spread points across their main force and this detachment.

Players cannot select units or Formations that are designated as “Open War”.

Players cannot select units that have a battlefield role designated as “Lord Of War”.

Players cannot select a Detachment that includes a unit which has a battlefield role designated as “Lord of War”.

Players if using the Reinforcements special rules must set aside a portion of their 1700 points for these units as per the Matched Play rules.

Reminder:  To preserve the sanity of the Tournament Organizers, submitted army lists must properly break-out the detachments for validation purposes.  They must also list the Battlefield Role and points cost of each unit.  They must also provide an indication as to where the rules for each unit can be found should they be from outside the main codex (eg: Index, or White Dwarf).


Reinforcement Detachment

To further enforce the narrative aspects of the games we have added a special Reinforcement Detachment to each player’s army.  This detachment will be used for games where a player has lost their previous match. Players can use this detachment to add a Troops unit and its dedicated transport to bolster their army.  With the requirement that only one shared keyword is required, this frees players to potentially diversify their force to add some additional narrative elements.

Restrictions:  All units must be from the same faction.  All units must share at least one keyword with the player’s Army. No more than 170 points may be spent on this detachment.
Command Benefits: None.

Astronomi-con Detachment

In an effort to encourage diverse forces and to better help players have Command Points to spend on Scenario Stratagems, we have created a new optional Detachment for players to use at Astronomi-con.

Restrictions: All units must be from the same faction.
Command Benefits: +10 Command Points
