Your Army

Each player’s Combat Patrol is limited to 400 points with a unique Force Allocation Chart:

  • 0-1 HQ
  • 1-3 Troops
  • 0-1 Elite
  • 0-1 Fast Attack
  • 0-1 Heavy Support
  • 0-1 Swing Slot (can be used as a bonus slot for any one other type)

There is only one compulsory Troop choice. Mandatory choices per specific Codex rules are not enforced. Vehicles must have an Armor Value on all facings of 12 or less.

You are not required to use the same army (or even the same Codex!) during the event. Try out as many options as you like!

Your Mission

Every game will use The Emperor’s Will mission from the Warhammer 40,000 Rulebook (page 130). Games will last 5 rounds, with no variable game length. All normal Secondary Objectives and Mission Special Rules are in effect.
