There’s been a lot going on lately that I want to update you on – campaigns for both 40k and Fantasy at Dragons Lair Millard, an upcoming 40k RTT down at the Game Shoppe, and everyone getting ready for the March Hare RTT in … March obviously. I’ve got some battles to report on and some pictures to post of my daemons army, but for the next seven days is all about updates concerning the Bugeater GT.
Today’s update is the newest release of the 40k mission pack. We’ve changed how we’re going to handle kill points, and now there’s graphics for deployment (although those graphics will be polished up for the final version of the scenario pack). The scenarios themselves are pretty solidified after some testing, and we think there’s a nice mix of objectives to appease to different army styles.
The mission pack for 40k can be found here.
Tomorrow we will post the first version of the Warhammer Fantasy mission pack. For those of you curious, since we haven’t posted anything much about fantasy for the GT, here are the restrictions as of right now:
The Bugeater Fantasy GT will follow the Warhammer Fantasy 8th edition rules and all relevant Games Workshop FAQs and Erratas.
Each player will field a valid 2500 point army, constructed from the valid GW army lists (so no Dogs of War, Ravening Hordes Chaos Dwarfs, or Indy GT Chaos Dwarfs permitted)
NO special characters are allowed, and this includes named unit champions
The following items are not permitted at the Bugeater GT:
- Power Scroll
- Book of Hoeth
- Cupped Hands
- Becalming Cognition
If your army contains Wizards, the Lore that Wizard uses MUST be placed on your army list. For Grey Seers, you must declare how you are dividing their spells on your army list as well (e.g. 2 spells from Ruin and 2 spells from Plague).
The following rules will apply to the magic phase:
- You may never use more than 12 power dice in a single magic phase for any reason.
- A character is always allowed to take a Look out, Sir! Roll, regardless of any restrictions that would normally apply, for the following spells:
- The Dwellers Below
- Purple Sun
- Infernal Gateway
- Dreaded 13th Spell
More to come!
