personally i love that new rule of three, cause it doesnt effect my list. (ork horde list just 180 buys 60 stormboys yeah me....no more spamming horrible orky killy stuff)
and secondly it does create balance and varierty.

just like the rule "boots on the ground" stopped guys from bringng rowboat girlyman and 3 stormravens so this new rule will bring balance


That's it though in'it, it's a suggestion, not a cold hard rule. Suggestions are always open to interpretation. E.g. why don't you grow a beard Doc? (Suggestion). Because I look like Papa Smurf. (cold hard fact)

Slow down there tiger....GW is by no means racist or relegist...the error is u think they hate ur disgusting, nausiating turban wearing army.
in fact ur army is completely racist to the core...why have u not bothered trying to convert ur army to the healthy supreme and all peace loving helmet wearing space marine army.
(remeber kids helmets are there for ur safety....helmets good turbans bad)

dare i say this is reverse racsism....picking on the poor financialy struggling family friendly GW company, who just wants to make u happy if u would only play space marines. :mrgreen:


Ha, helmets good, turbans bad. Love it.

Can't wait to meet you lot 'up North.

not so much of a suggestion as a implied rule, due to the fact in the Big FAq is states:

"Related Errata Page 214 – Organised Events Replace this boxout with the following: "

so replacing would imply remove the old box with all its restrictions, and follow new box with all its restrictions....unless u (the matched play hoster/tourny organizer) wants to run ur own tourney with wateva rules ur lus to use.
i see that happinging at carnage, or any other number of tournyies where non standered mission are played.
but i doubt highly it would be used at nationals cause it generely follows standered rules missions and faqs

Looks like I'm primarily coming up for beers and man love with Johnnykins then. Pushing millions of little men around the board can come second. Just make sure the bar is stocked with Hansa quarts.

Too right about the bromance. How many others will be joining us? May as well make it a mass fluid exchange session.

is it just me, or are others also impressed by the irony of people not being smitten with the smite amendments?

well i for one have not enjoyed being smited...smote...smat? so i am now smitten with the new smite rule.
the new DS rule is good for me to, no more getting half wiped in turn 1, and the limit of same datasheets to 3 per army is good for me to...bye bye spam. so all in all im happy balance in varitey seems to be the name of the game

Keep the 02h30 time limit but drop points.

IMO.

I have created a poll in the tournament discussions thread to get input from the community around the nationals schedule and game time concerns. If everyone attending nationals can please make an effort to submit a vote.

I don't know how to create a link to another post so is a generous soul could help me out with that I would appreciated it.

I would still like to state that we believe the 2:30 min time limit is not an issue if player take it seriously. Also the Death Clock works well to enforce discipline in time wasting. We have tested this now with 4 games at least and every game had time left on the clock.

Thanks

First version of the rules pack has been listed. A final pack will be released on the 31st of July to allow for any further clarifications, poll results for the clock and schedule rules as well as GW beta rules.

Start testing those missions!

Would like clarification on the rules pack concerning relics.

The (Dark Angel at least) codex usually states that <FACTION> relics can only be taken if the Warlord is from that faction?

Is the tournament pack overriding that?

EDIT:

Unless that's only for the free one and I'm being confused.

On that, if you read the way the extra relics stratagems are all worded you'll see that they say you may take an extra relic. Extra on zero is still a viable interpretation that, as far as I can tell, from how it is being played in tournament reports globally and from local experience.

That said you are absolutely right in pointing out that your initial relic must be from the faction your warlord is from, which I don't think is being overruled by anything in the rules pack and if it is I am certain that would be an error.
