BeakyCon 2 & 6th Edition - What is in & What is out

Hi ! Happy 4th of July !!

After a lot of thought and much discussion BeakyCon2 will use the new 6th edition rules:

- 1999 points (no double FOC lists)

- Allies are in

- Fliers are in

- Warlord Traits are out

- Fortification is in...
No Fortress of Redemption though. If you play a non Imperial army you can bring a custom built fortification but it must closely match the dimensions of those from GW such as the Aegis Defense Line... No modeling for a gaming advantage.

- The following rules from the 6th edition rulebook will not be used:
• "mysterious terrain" (p.102)
• "Archotech artefacts" (p 106)
• "unique terrain" (p. 107)

- Each mission will have a primary objective (e.g., control the most objective markers) with two tie breakers (Slay the Warlord, Linebreaker, etc.). The format is still pure W-L with six rounds and one undefeated player. Note that the following rules for missions from the rulebook will not be used:
• "First Blood" victory condition (p. 122)

- Armies must be fully painted (3 color minimum and bases flocked).

If you have any questions or comments then let me know.
