Mini-FAQ 2016
« on: August 21, 2016, 12:50:11 PM »
Hey all,

Recently I collected a few questions, regarding the rules and FAQ 2010, from this forum and mailed them at the High Admirality.

Ray Bell was so kindly yo answer them and Bob Henderson had a look as well. Keep in mind the answers could change if Nate Montes reports. But for now it all seems suitable enough:


Squadron separation: When squadrons get separated it's up to the player to decide which ship they wish to use to base their squadron off. When this occurs you must try to do whatever you can with the separated ship to rejoin the squadron. You can't BFI when separated. 
The Bait, determining points value of a fleet regarding restrictions: The total value of your fleet (up to 750pts) is what you use to determine your character/fleet requirement.
Planetary Assualt and defender disengagement: This scenario ends in a victory for the attacker if the defender disengages(i.e throws in the towel) or is destroyed(including defences).
Mark of Tzeentch and Bridge Smashed: The Mark of Tzeentch is still useable if the bridge is smashed as it's a ship upgrade.
Prince Yriel: Treat this character as an Eldar Hero (Ld 10), with one re-roll, aspect warriors, vampire raiders and a fleet attack rating of 4. For 150 points. May buy up to 2 extra re-rolls at 25pts each.
Mimic Engines and launching ordnance: You can launch Attack Craft and Torpedoes and maintain your target immunity in turn 1 as long as your ordnance doesnít initiate contact with the enemy.
Impalers, determining owning ships when destroyed: When Impalers are lost the owning player decides which ship from squadron loses its Impaler. This does mean you have to keep track of which Impalers come from each squadron.
Necrons in Scenarios: The Necron Harvest Fleets are a Major Raid fleet as such are suited to only a few scenarios. Convoy, the scenario offers you the ordnance/transports regardless of the fleet being used. Planetary assault, in the current background it seems quite reasonable for them to enslave an Imperial world and use their defences.

Tyranids and Necrons in campaigns
: There are no official complete rules for campaigns for these fleets as such itís up to players to decide whether to use unofficial or house rules.

Thank you for sending my pedantic rantings to the authorities!  WE FINALLY HAVE AN OFFICIAL RULING ABOUT DISENGAGING FOR PLANETARY ASSAULT!

Also the Necrons enslaving Imperial machines makes sense, but I would prefer that they also had their own defence platforms that were Necron-y.  Perhaps once Gothic gets rebooted, Forge World can get on that.

Maybe this should go to the rules-download-section. In mini-pdf-form.
