Please note that I have lowered the whole league by 500 points per month, this is so we can get more games in during a month, and the tournament doesn't take like 10 hours to complete :P

I think I'm in with Nids... though, I do need an excuse to put together my Tau... we'll see

Myself, Chris S, Chris G, James, Adam and Stephen will all be at the store Thursday after 5. If you want to try to get a pick up game by all means. 500 point games should be short, so we should be able to get a couple games.

Title: Re: ComicReaders Downtown - Warhammer 40k Escalation League - Season 5 Discussion
Post by: Lareina on January 19, 2016, 05:18:30 PM
Hey I just did a slight update to the FAQ

Q. Am I allowed to use a formation that is labelled as an Apocalypse Formation?
A. Yes, but only after you fulfil compulsory requirement of your primary detachment and as long as your points allow it. Any rules that are strictly Apocalypse related, eg. Strategic Assets, do not apply, and cannot be gained in order to do obtain special items like more vortex grenades. Please have the dataslate on hand with the rules on it for your opponent to see.

This is to coincide with the fact that I'm allowing Forge World, and Super Heavies etc, remember while you can be competitive for the escalation months I do advise against having a hyper competitive list, because while a soul crushing list might be fun for you, your opponent might not have the same amount of enjoyment, and that may hurt your chances of getting future games. Save the competitive list for the tournament, experiment with things that you'd normally not take, it keeps things fresh.
Title: Re: ComicReaders Downtown - Warhammer 40k Escalation League - Season 5 Discussion
Post by: Lareina on January 21, 2016, 11:39:24 PM
Wow, thanks to everyone that came out tonight! We had like 5 games on the go at once. About 15 games that I could recall that took place, I don't remember a lot of the results, so please message me the results. I also might have missed a game or two, or might have screwed up on remembering matches.

I'll try to organize another big throwdown again either before the month ends (League month, not calendar). The store may only have a couple tables next Thursday because of the X-Wing league.
Title: Re: ComicReaders Downtown - Warhammer 40k Escalation League - Season 5 Discussion
Post by: Kyle on January 22, 2016, 12:15:45 AM
Agreed, that was some enjoyable gaming.  The number of people I have ever played 40k with just doubled and it was a blast.  Will be hunting Pask next month though... for the greater good of course ;)

It was a very good time, glad to know I have so many potential opponents left to play this month. I really hope that Thursday's can be a dedicated 40k night.

All I can say is damn. This is for Chaos as well as Space wolf players. If you haven't seen curse of the wulfen rules... they are putting it simply
BROKEN (in a good way). The amount of new options will make you 1k and 1500 point lists very tough

Making the draw tomorrow morning, make sure the game list is up to date guys! For the most part I can make the rival list, I'll post that up later tonight.

I have changed how the draw is going to work, number of entries is dependent on how many games you have played divided by 2. If you have played at least 2 games you have at least 1 entry! This way doesn't matter if you win or lose for the random prize draws.

Xander vs Mark D
James vs Stephen
Matt P vs Kyle U
Adam vs Eddie
Colin vs Chris G
Casey vs Chris S

"But Lareina, Casey didn't play any league games."
It is true, but I had everyone that played a game at PGX get one entry per game played. Casey participated in the tournament. :)

"But Lareina, Casey didn't play any league games."
It is true, but I had everyone that played a game at PGX get one entry per game played. Casey participated in the tournament. :)

Whoah, hold up a minute.  Casey's alive?  I thought he went out with Bowie.  #Mindblown

Post by: Prince of Arnheim on February 29, 2016, 11:51:24 PM
Oh oh, I just realized I have an illegal list, I can't take 3 spyders in the Canoptek Harvest formation(even though ARmybuilder let me do it) the codex says 1 spyder not a unit. So I wanted to admit that and give everyone I played the win and myself all losses this month. Will I also lose all my points for having to change my list? I think I deserve that for this oversight. My apologies people. :(
Title: Re: ComicReaders Downtown - Warhammer 40k Escalation League - Season 5 Discussion
Post by: Kyle on March 01, 2016, 01:08:29 AM
Far as I'm concerned you defeated me cleanly Maeson.  Looking forward to a rematch next month.  Cheers.
Title: Re: ComicReaders Downtown - Warhammer 40k Escalation League - Season 5 Discussion
Post by: Prince of Arnheim on March 01, 2016, 02:28:10 PM
Yeah but with an illegal list. One saving grace might be the fact that I could have taken 3 more Wraiths and the single Spyder instead which is what I'll do next month.
Title: Re: ComicReaders Downtown - Warhammer 40k Escalation League - Season 5 Discussion
Post by: ColinL. on March 01, 2016, 02:32:51 PM
The harvest is a formation. The other spyders could be from your regular list?
Title: Re: ComicReaders Downtown - Warhammer 40k Escalation League - Season 5 Discussion
Post by: Prince of Arnheim on March 01, 2016, 03:04:22 PM
Oh I know the harvest is a formation that's why I took it, also my heavy slots were taken up by my 3 heavy destroyers. I think having the unit of 3 spyders really affected my games cause it gave my formation RP for much longer than if I would have only had 1 spyder
Title: Re: ComicReaders Downtown - Warhammer 40k Escalation League - Season 5 Discussion
Post by: Prince of Arnheim on March 01, 2016, 03:05:42 PM
That and the spyders won a couple of games for me by themselves

Title: Re: ComicReaders Downtown - Warhammer 40k Escalation League - Season 5 Discussion
Post by: Prince of Arnheim on March 04, 2016, 05:02:44 PM
Lareina decided to just give me and all the players I beat(Except Colin who I beat with a legal list) a tie because no one would really know how the games would have been affected if I just had another 3 Wraiths and only one Spyder instead of a unit of 3 Canoptek Spyders. I totally feel that is fair and is actually more than fair. I apologize once again for fielding an illegal list I would like to thank the people that talked to me about it last night. No one seemed to have a problem, and the general consensus was that it's cool cause at least I admitted to making the mistake and also there were some games I would have likely won anyways but who knows.

I am probably not gonna play anymore games this month due to my work schedule but I am looking forward to month 3. I triple checked my list this time lol.

40K League Members:

Fan Expo Regina (April 23 - 24) has a sizeable gaming space this year. The gaming space is being managed by SaskGames (with whom ComicReaders is a partner). The SaskGames / Fan Expo Regina folks have an interest in seeing 40K at Fan Expo Regina.

So....

- Any 40K League game played at Fan Expo Regina and reported to Lareina will be counted as an "in-store" game for League points.

You'll need a Fan Expo pass to get into the venue but if you were attending the event for the day or weekend anyway perhaps there would be time for some 40K action. At the very least, if you are at Fan Expo Regina this year please drop by the gaming area.

I'm going to bring a game board and some terrain to the venue.

I'm also going to bring some of my Tyranids to have on the table for display purposes so I can talk about the game if people are interested in the system when visiting the gaming space. I'm not going to run a "demo" but I can certainly chat about the game.

Slight change up in the rankings again. It seems like the top 4 is pretty solid with Adam, Maeson, Kyle and Stephen, but who will join them?

Current Rankings:

Maeson is catching up to Adam! Only 1 point separates them.


Xander has 45 points, Colin has 35 points, a couple of games and they might be able to get into the Top 8!

Alright, hopefully I have all the results! For the Top 8, please confirm your attendance either in person, by text, or by PM, using the thread would work too.

Stephen is the first to not be able to make it, which means Anthony has the next slot if you so choose to accept.

Colin will now be the next substitute if someone else has to drop.

Can every model replace their close combat attacks with a single grenade attack in the Assault Phase or just one model in the unit?
Only one model from the unit can attack with a grenade in the Assault Phase.  As per the rules "Only one grenade (of any type) can be thrown by a unit per phase."


I gotta say, this one really caught me by surprise.  I never had that reading, nor met anyone that had that reading.  I guess I was thrown off (pun intended) by the use of the word "thrown" in the "one grenade per phase" rule.  I knew that only one grenade could be used as a Ranged weapon, but didn't read that as applying to Assault as well.  Wow.  This changes a lot for me. Walkers seem a whole lot better knowing that your not facing an entire unit full of Krak Grenades.  This also makes the value equation on Power Fists quite different.

Psyker units can only cast one power per phase now which kinda nerfs Daemons and Grey Knights!

Also models have to be 25% in cover to benefit from it. This is one thing I've often had problems with during the league especially with the pieces of terrain that have open ground surrounded with ruins, I.e. Is it a 5++ or 4++? So now if the model is in terrain but not physically blocked by it for line of sight it doesn't get a save.

I thought the 25% rule was just for Vehicles, and Monstrous/Gargantuan Creatures?

It does clear up the (overly generous IMO) interpretation that Flyers, Swooping Flying Monstrous Creatures, and Gargantuan Monstrous Creatures got a Cover Save for having a "toe in" area terrain.

The clarifications on Psychic Powers is a big deal.  Can only cast a maximum number equal to Mastery Level (regardless of number of dice) and a Unit (no matter how man IC's) can only ever attempt to cast a power once (no "try again").  Also, effects from identical psychic powers do not stack (no double Cursed Earth).

Also whereas before the elemental powers of an Ethereal worked while embarked on a transport due to nothing saying that they couldn't (as opposed to the clearly written rules for psychic powers) now they clearly due not work, nor does his leadership bubble.  Now no abilities of any kind work while embarked "unless the rule specifically states that it does so." 

Also agreed Mark; the grenade thing is weird.  Especially for the plethora of units that must pay for grenade upgrades for "every model in the unit" so that they can only use one.  Lol, now there should be an option to decline to carry krak grenades and only pay 13pts for a marine instead of 14.

Sorry a day late, but the missions are thus:

Round 1: Emperor's Will on Dawn of War
Round 2: Cleanse and Control on Vanguard Strike
Round 3: Purge the Alien on Hammer and Anvil

Regular tactical objective cards, no supremacy tactical objective cards, mostly because not everyone has the cards.
