Highlander 750pts event October 10 @ Off the Wall Games

Post by AdamL » Thu Sep 17, 2015 5:15 am

On October 10 there will be a highlander event being hosted Saturday at Off The Wall.

The format will be the same as before.

The following restrictions will be in place for all lists:

Special Characters are permitted as long as any codex specific restrictions are
followed.

Stronghold Assault is allowed

Data Slates are not allowed

Any rerolled save is capped at 4+, eg, screamers with Grimorie would be 2+/4+

No Lords of War can be selected

Only a single combined arms detachment may be selected

Except Troops (see below) no unit may be selected more than once. This restriction
is applied across allied detachments. This rule applies to variants that have the same
stat line:
E.g. a Land Raider and a Land Raider Crusader count as the same.
E.g. a Dreadnought and Ironclad Dreadnought are different.

If a unit comes as a squadron
then it may be selected with the maximum models but
only a single squadron may be taken:
E.g. Astra Militarum could take a command tank squadron but would then be
disallowed a Heavy Support Leman Russ squadron (even with one vehicle)

Within Troops you may
select the same unit more than once only when all options
have been taken. Again this rule applies across allied detachments.
E.g. no second tactical squad until you have a scout squad
(Please note if you try to build an Astra Militarum Blob the subjecti
ve comp
will be applied)

Within Troops any duplicate entries are capped at 3 units. Each unit must be
equipped different though (no spam)
E.g. first Tactical Squad has Lascannon / Plasma Gun and the second has
Missile Launcher / Meltagun.

Transports are also limited to 0-1 of that type. No multiple trukks even if you have them as DT for boyz or rhinos for SM for example.

TLDR: 0-1 EVERYTHING except Troops which can be taken again if all other troop options have been selected.

If anybody has any questions let me know.

minor change No forgeworld units or rules.

Missions and more information coming soon.

So judging by the interest expressed so far it seems only one person has signed up.

Just out of curiosity is it because it's a bad date that there seems to be a lack of interest? Feel free to share any thoughts/concerns or PM if you would like.

Edit:

One thought I had might be to swap the date out to possible a Wednesday since that day has the most people at the store. Would that be more convenient for you?

October is just bad for me. I'm really wishing I could play in the Malifaux campaign too, but I just can't commit. I'd hate to put anyone out.

I'll join in the fracas!!

Wednesday or Thursday. LMK

You also might want to post on wild willy's page, as they're always posting on the 131 fb and they usually do a lot of 500 and 750 functions. Maybe mix the two communities.

I'll be there. My eldar would love to brawl. Wednesdays would work for me, but maybe saturdays would be better for others.

Mtg release season is over at the end of this week.

Wednesday is usually a great day for me.

This sounds cool, I'm in and either date is fine for me. Although a Wednesday event may be tough with everyone there. Question for Tau. If I use a Crisis Commander with bodyguard does that exclude other crisis suits? Or can i use both a commander and attached bodyguard as HQ choice and then use a Crisis Team as an elite choice?
