The fate of the galaxy is in your hands!!! Soon your skills as a commander will be put to the test!
Sometimes the mission will call out for a specific formation and/or troops. Other times it will be totally up to the players discretion as to how to build their army. This first campaign mission calls out for a specific tyranid troop formations. In order to play you must have this formation, or else you will be disqualified. The tyranids players will be using the vanguard force. This consist of units of gene stealers and lictors. (Before a full scale invasion, these are the first threats of the tyranids. If you got a gene stealer infestation in your planet, brace yourself, Cus the worst is yet to come) make your list this way. 1 optional HQ (death leaper only), 1-3 detachments of troops (gene stealers only) and 1-3 detachments of elites (lictors only) to a total of no more than 950 pts. If you do not poses the proper models, "proxies"/ "counts as" will be acceptable, as long as its the same base size.
(any faction besides tyranids), your formation will look a bit different. It will consist of a force organization of 1 HQ, 1-3 elites slots of your choice. And 1-3 slots of fast attack. Its highly recommended that you use transports as your fast attacks, or include dedicated transports, for it will aid you in the type of mission that will be played. But transports is not mandatory. Build your list to no more than 950 pts.
You will most likely be paired up with a partner creating a game of 1900 pts on each end of the table.
# Bring your army list, preferably typed or on battle scribe.
*note: forge world is allowed. But must have up-to-date rules handy.
All the TYRANIDS players will be in one team. Any other faction will be placed in a team called THE DEFENDERS. at the end of each event the winner of either team will be announced. Every player of the winning team will receive a prize.
