Warhammer 40,000: Andros League

Prepare for war in the Andros Sector in our Warhammer 40k summer league! Play at any point level to take critical holdings and claim the sector as yours. There’s something for everyone! 

The Andros Sector League will last eight weeks, starting Sunday, June 17 and ending Saturday, August 11. Each week starts on Sunday and ends Saturday, with league nights on Sundays and Thursdays. You are not required to play on league nights; they’re set aside to make match-ups easier and ensure tablespace.

Throughout the League you will fight over the four habitable planets of the Andros sector – Cadfael, Kallistrate, Lysimachus and Tyros. Each world has four key Holdings. Andros is a Lost Sector to the Imperium of Man, overtaken by a Warp storm which ravaged its systems and killed every creature on its worlds. Each galactic faction has its own stake to unearth Andros’ secrets.

Below is a summary of the League rules. You can download the full rules packet (PDF), including details on each planet and its Holdings.

Rules of Battle

The default size of a league game is 1,500 points. A league game can be played at any point level with the agreement of both players. Smaller league games are worth fewer points, while larger ones are worth more points. Players can also play 2-on-2 team games for bonus points.

Each league game uses a random mission and deployment using the tables in the Warhammer 40,000 Main Rulebook, pages 90 and 92. League games may make full use of reserves, deep strike, infiltration and scouting.

Titles & Winning

There are three League titles to claim: Ultimate Warlord, Eternal Warrior and Master Crafter.

  • Ultimate Warlord goes to the player with the most Holdings at League end.
  • Eternal Warrior goes to the player with the highest League Score.
  • Master Crafter goes to the player who paints the most models, from bare plastic (or metal or resin) to full coverage with at least three colors.
  • Comrade in Arms goes to the player with the most votes for best attitude from their opponents.

Ultimate Warlord and Eternal Warrior must go to two different players.

    Will these leage be based off 5th edition throughout or will it change to 6th at some point? I havent read rules yet so if thats covered im sorry and ignore post.

  2. Jeremy says:

    Knew I forgot something. Barring a unanimous vote to change over, we’ll stick to 5th Edition throughout the league. 6th Edition won’t be out at least until the beginning of July, and I’d rather not change rulesets halfway through.

    The “Master Crafter” award, I assume that only models which are bare plastic at the beginning of the league and fully painted at the end count?

  4. Jeremy says:

    To clarify it further, primed is acceptable if the primer color is not a final color. Basically, however it’s registered needs to get completely covered by new paint.

    I’m going to try to get my Krieg ready for this League and the new edition.
