Post Gaelcon 2017 - Warhammer 40k Rulespack
Hey folks!

Warhammer 40k will be running at Gaelcon this year using the shiny new 8th edition rule set *oooooooh* *aaaahhhhh*

The rulespack [Changes are now live in the rulespack] which is attached, the TL:DR of it is 2000 points, Forge World is allowed, 3 detachments, 5 games, swanky new rule set. *Missions are in the pack this year*

The updates for those who want a change summary are:

- Kill points mission values have been adjusted
- Non Codex armies have objective secured on their troops
- The pre-game setup roll-off has been adjusted
- Tabling an opponent has been adjusted
- Detachments may no longer be duplicated
- Unit selection for detachments has been updated [Troops exempt] ** as an example: If I have 3 units of Dark Reapers in Detachment 1, then I cannot have them in Detachment 2 or Detachment 3.**

Rules clarifications:

Astra Militarum [Ratlings]: The special deployment of Ratlings units counts towards the maximum number of units that a player must deploy on the board during regular deployment.
Adeptus Mechanicus [Stratagem - SCRYERSKULL]: The wording which refers to the shooting with the stratagem means you may ignore the hit penalties of the Dawn Raid, Low
Visibility or Cover of Darkness rules only. Other penalties still apply as normal. It does not mean that you may shoot out of normal shooting restrictions. I.e: You can use this where your unit is already eligible to shoot at a target.
Heretic Astartes [Forward Operatives]: The units benefiting from this strategem must be calculated into the number of units that are initially deployed on the table at the start of the game. [If you have 6 units of Forward Operatives, you must have 6 units deployed normally, similar to deep strike]
Adeptus Astartes [Killshot, applies to the CSM version too]: Only the 'nominated' Predator gains the benefits of the stratagem.

Any questions or concerns please feel free to PM me or contact the email in the document :D

Times:
Saturday Registration begins at 9am. Games begin at 10am.
Sunday: Arrival to the venue for 10:15, games to start at 10:30. Early in, early out :)

For challenges, this thread may be used.

Happy nerding!
Dan

I'll probably make this.

Quick question - if I play Blood Angels and want to select a unit for which I use the same datasheet for Space Marines (say an Assault Squad), do I use the Index Imperium 1 datasheet or the Codex Space Marines datasheet for the Assault Squad?

There was actually an answer on this on the community site Lenny. tl;dr you can use the entry from the new codex to represent the modebs in your BA force, or the entry in the Index. You will need to have a copy of these rules with you as per the rules pack.

Thanks Caolan, I seem to have missed that somehow. Would be nice if they had put it in the FAQ. I'll probably use the Codex Space Marines rules, it seems more right to me to do that.

I agree Lenny. Though the lack of double Melta in the Assault squads is annoying. Would only have taken an extra sentence in the Index.

It's in the Index Imperium 1 Errata. Regular Assault Squad can have 2 Flamers, so 2 Meltaguns is still allowed for BA.

Page 89 – Wargear
Add the following before the final paragraph:
‘Models in Assault Squads that have the option for a plasma pistol may instead take a hand flamer or an inferno pistol (replacing their bolt pistol) and those that have the option for a flamer may instead take a meltagun or plasma gun (replacing their bolt pistol and chainsword).’

Chalk me up for this, please, Dan - too long since I've rolled some dice! I have some more ladies in need of painting and there's nothing like a tourney to speed up the process :oops:

Will you be playing the bye-buster, Dan, or are you in for the full pound? I'd be curious to see what savagery you'd be bringing :lol:
