MASTER UNIT LIST UPDATE:

14 July 2023

General Rules: Master Unit Lists

Each of the factions in this event work individually and their rules will be explained in their own sections. Some rules for creating a master list will effect all factions and these are listed here.

Battleline and Non-Battleline

You may take as many Battleline and Non-Battleline units as you like.

The exception to this is Warbands and equivalents. Each of these is affected by the standard rules. This means you could deploy two Astra Militarum Regiments to allow you to field 6 Leman Russ datasheets.

This does not affect retinue units.

If this appears to be being abused we will look into it further.

Generic Boons

Units will gain Experience that will allow them to gain Boons. No unit may have the same boon more than once and no more than 4 generic boons total. You may always choose to gain a Strategic Point instead.

A unit gains 1 Experience point each time it is deployed and 1 Experience point for each unit it destroys.

At the following Experience levels the unit gains a boon;

6-15 Exp: Blooded (1 Generic Boon total, 1 Specific Boon Total)
16-30 Exp: Battle Hardened (2 Generic Boons total, 2 Specific Boons Total)
31-50 Exp: Heroic (3 Generic Boons total, 3 Specific Boons Total)
51+ Exp: Legendary (4 Generic Boons total, 4 Specific Boons Total)

When you start a game count the number of Boons your force has and compare this against your opponents force. Work out the difference and then consult the below table;

0-5 Boons: No effect
6-10 Boons: You start with 2 additional CP.
11-15 Boons: Once per turn you may re-roll 1 Battle-shock test for your army.
16-20 Boons: Friendly units in your deployment zone are -1 to hit against ranged attacks.
21+ Boons: All Friendly units gain d3 Experience at the end of the game.

The player with the lower number of Boons gains the above bonus.

Specific Boons

Any unit may only have one type of faction specific boon unless stated otherwise (eg. only one Adepta Sororitas Specific Boon).

For example a unit may have no more than two Daemon Boons allocated to them.

A unit may have up to 4 specific boons from different factions.

For example an Imperial Unit could have a Commissariat Boon, Rogue Trader Boon and an Inquisitorial Boon.

Creating a Master Unit List

Some factions will have master unit lists. This is normally the starting point for their army. Do not worry if due to Boons or spending Strategic Points you have more points than the starting Master Unit List.

Also you do not need to own all of the units in your Master Unit List. They are a pool that you can call on to play your games. If you do not have 100 Tactical Space Marines but they are in your master unit list, that is not a problem.

Dedicated Transports

Your master unit list may include 1 Dedicated Transport per Non Dedicated Transport Unit. You may field 1 Dedicated Transport in an army for each Non Dedicated Transport unit. If people abuse Dedicated Transports these rules will be looked at.

Unit Casualties and Points Values

As a unit takes casualties its Points Value decreases by the value of models lost. If the unit does not have a Points Per Model (PPM) value then take the total cost of the unit and divide it by the number of models. Eg. Cadian Infantry Squads cost 65 points for 10 models, therefore each model is with 7 PPM (6.5 points rounded up).

FAQ and Erratas

Codex FAQs and Erratas are in use. The latest Munitorum Field Manual is in use for updating the points values.
