Hey fellow Wargamers, in anticipation of the next tournament (which we don’t have an exact date for but we’re planning on early June) I wanted to inform you all about the new FAQ that popped up and also ask some questions regarding it and our local tournament. First, I want to say that we will definitely be adopting any and all changes within the FAQs, as usual, but one thing that I don’t think was quite made clear in the first place was whether we were following the “Organized Events” section in the main rule book. It’s the section on page 214 which gives, what I always understood as, suggestions for running a tournament. I wanted to get everyone’s feedback on whether we should do the detachment limit and, now that the FAQ dropped, the datasheet limit. The datasheet limit is essentially that you cannot field more than 3 of the same unit in an army, unless they’re troops or dedicated transports. I feel like this is a pretty big change but I also feel that it doesn’t affect how we’ve all been playing already and would only curb spammy nonsense from ever popping up.

The last question I have is I’ve noticed that larger tournaments, such as Adepticon and ITC, adopt the new beta rules as soon as they’re announced. To give a quick explanation of them there’s beta Battle Brothers and beta Tactical Reserves. The former limits detachment building using the Chaos, Imperium, Aeldari, Ynnari and Tyranids faction, and the latter makes turn 1 deepstrikes only able to occur inside your own deployment zone but turn 2 and on is as normal. I know I made those quite brief but I’m going to link the announcement on the Warhammer community page so you can all familiarize yourselves and also download the new pdfs.

A robust game of The Red Dragon Inn tonight. 6 of the 7 players made to the final round. And then some crafty plays ended the game. Thanks for all that showed up.
Next we are bringing back the fan favorite, Oregon Trail.
