Post by: Prince of Arnheim on December 18, 2017, 12:11:47 PM
The digital Chaos index just got updated with the Chapter Approved points changes.

That being said, it would appear that I cannot use the CSM Codex points values and rules,spells, strategems etc. with my Thousand Sons as they are not included in the index. So am I allowed to just use the index with the chapter approved update?

This would mean that I get to use smite normally with my Tzeentch horrors. It would also mean I only have 4 spells to choose from and not 8 if I was to incorporate the csm book.

Thoughts and opinions? I really want to figure my escalation lists out, but I’m very confused on the matter.
Title: Re: ComicReaders Downtown - Warhammer 40k Escalation League - Season 7 Discussion
Post by: Prince of Arnheim on December 18, 2017, 12:26:35 PM
Ok I see the nerf to horror smite is in the index faq so I would use that, I knew that anyways and it’s how I’ve been playing them.
Title: Re: ComicReaders Downtown - Warhammer 40k Escalation League - Season 7 Discussion
Post by: Lareina on December 18, 2017, 04:42:11 PM
I would say that you'd have to just use the Index and Chapter Approved and not mix with the other books. Yes it sucks to only have 4 powers but Thousand Sons will eventually get their individual codex and it'll get more powers.

Post by: Prince of Arnheim on December 18, 2017, 06:14:27 PM
I found the link/website that confirms I can use all the heretic spells.

https://games-workshop.org/daemons-and-thousand-sons-in-index-chaos-update/

Sorry hope that clears up my dilemma , I respect your decision if I’m still only allowed to use the index spells but I think it would really neuter my non codex army. Plus literally every chaos player is doing this, I was just confused by the index update that’s why I mentioned this.

any SM players, I have 3-4 intercessors and 2-3 hellblasters from the dark imperium set that I won't be using if you want or need to bolster your numbers a bit.  I also have most of a MK 4 tac squad a land speeder and attack bike on sprue.  if you want them, let me know.

So, I guess last Thursday there was a start of an X-Wing league, and about 10 people showed up. I don't know what they're supposed to be expecting every week, but I just wanted to give you guys a heads up. I can book at least 1 table for sure (up at the front) at all times. During the day other than Tuesday is fine during the week, it's just after 6 when it gets a little dicey (no pun intended).

You can always call the day before if you want space for Saturday at the store and we can more than likely accommodate 1 or 2 tables unless there's a big event like the PreRelease that is happening this weekend at the store.

Hello! Please add me to the list of participants. I will be playing a Thousand Sons army ("No Codex? No Problems!"). Should be interesting.

Contact me at riel@hotmail.com to set up a game. I would prefer to play at the store Fridays during the daytime, but I could accommodate any date or time, given enough notice.

Tzeentch has a plan for us all, brother.

I do apologize, I know I said that the back room was free Thursday nights for drop ins, but it looks like I can fit one or maybe 2 games out in the front store area. Which means you might have to book tables. This is all due to X-Wing apparently taking off really well lately, and then we're starting a Magic League as well in February, and I don't know how many people will be attending that.

The store is always available during the day on weekdays.

Curious what's everyone's thought about the Smite beta rule?

The one where you need to increase the difficulty for subsequent Smite attempts in the same psychic phase.

Have you the players been playing it that way? Or have you just been doing Smite spam?

So far only one opponent I've played had multiple Psykers and he voluntarily used the rule, otherwise it hasn't come up.  Personally I like the rule.

Just an FYI for the whole league, should have posted this earlier when I first noticed it.  By now many of you will have already noticed but for those of you who have not the forum is no longer pushing thread update notifications to users' emails (even if notifications are turned on) or notifying users by email of PM's.  So if you think nobody is talking to you it may be that they are but the site hasn't bothered to tell you.  Happy gaming all.  Cheers.

Still plenty of month left to get games in! Since I was asked to have an updated points count, here you go!

Current Top 8 - As of April 9th

Colin L - 57
Adam S - 56
Mark D - 55

I'll update the standings every Monday.

Which reminds me, I'm looking to do the tournament Saturday or Sunday in May, to the current Top 8, which dates DON'T work for you? I'll take in consideration everyone's answer. This is more of an unofficial poll, I need to look at the store schedule and figure it out versus my own.

I haven't decided on the date yet, but please let me know asap if a date doesn't work for you since I'll try to accommodate as much as the current Top 8 as possible.

A concern about round length has been brought up. I'll be lowering the tournament to 1500 points so then we can get rounds in around 3 hours (hoping for 2.5 hours) and leave at a relatively decent time, lol.

Mark , thanks for the link but I meant the new beta rules not the ones that became official in the last update. the no deep strike in your opponents zone during turn one rule.

Title: Re: ComicReaders Downtown - Warhammer 40k Escalation League - Season 7 Discussion
Post by: Malachi on May 03, 2018, 09:18:13 AM
... and the "rule of three" is the other big Beta change.

One that may have flew under the radar for some people that is errata in the main rulebook FAQ:
Quote
The rules for reinforcements say that when a unit is set up on
the battlefield as reinforcements, it cannot move or Advance
further that turn, but can otherwise act normally (shoot,
charge, etc.).
Q: Can such a unit move or Advance for any other reason
e.g. because of an ability such as The Swarmlord’s Hive
Commander ability, or because of a psychic power such as
Warptime from the Dark Hereticus discipline, or because
of a Stratagem like Metabolic Overdrive from Codex:
Tyranids, etc.?
A: No.

So even without the "can't deepstrike outside deployment turn 1" rule, they have ruled that a unit that "deep strikes" cannot move any further by any means (except Charging).

Everyone has confirmed! I'll get working on the missions and stuff so you know what you need to prepare for. I should hopefully get it done by the end of next week.

I will be using at least 1 mission with the tactical cards.

Edit: Reminder that the tournament is 1500 points!

I've randomly rolled for the missions, I did all Chapter Approved missions. These -shouldn't- change between now and the tournament, but if it does change, I'll post asap. More than likely the thing that will change is the deployment method.

Round 1: Targets of Opportunity on Spearhead Assault
Round 2: Kill Confirmed on Search and Destroy
Round 3: Ascension on Hammer and Anvil

I know myself and a few others don't have the chapter approved book. Can someone please provide a run down of these missions? Thanks

Ascension

This mission uses three objectives. One is placed in the centre of the battlefield. The other two are placed by the players, each one must be placed exactly 18″ from the centre of the battlefield and at least 12″ from each players’ deployment zone or another objective. You score one point for each objective you control at the end of your turn. If only one player has a character within 3″ of the objective, they will control it. Also, if the character controls the objective for more than one your turns consecutively, you score a number of points equal to the number of turns you control it (e.g. if you hold it for two of your turns, you score three points; one for the first turn you hold it, two points for the second turn, etc).

Targets of Opportunity

In this mission, each player draws three tactical objective cards at the start of their turn. At the start of each subsequent turn, they must discard any tactical objective cards they have and draw three new ones.

This mission has a special stratagem called Second Chance. This costs 2 command points and allows you to select one tactical objective at the start of your turn and not have to discard it.

Kill Confirmed

In this mission, each player has three maelstrom cards in their turn. If a maelstrom card involves destroying an enemy unit, it cannot be discarded until it is achieved (any impossible cards can be discarded and re-drawn). In addition, you score one victory point for each enemy unit that is destroyed.

Hey guys/gals.... I have an odd request. Any Necron players out there that own Destoyers, is there a chance i could borrow some come tournament day? I have been having no luck so far tracking any of the physical models down on second hand or thru primary market for almost a month now. And they are just to damn good of a unit to pass up come list making for a possible option. That being said I will be trying to get some up until tournament day.

Thanks to everyone for coming out to the tournament!

Best General: Drake
Best Overall: Casey
Best Presentation: Kyle
Best Sportsman: Mike, Maeson, Mark

I'll probably have a warm-up league starting in September or so, then the next escalation will start up in January.

If anyone wants to try to start a campaign or something, I can help work on something, but I wouldn't be able to fully run it.

Chad might be doing a Kill Team league when Summer starts, nothing set in stone yet.
