Hi guys, me again. Thought I'd keep the ball rolling seeing as the last couple have gone really well. This time, I decided we should take a more basic stance on the game, compared to the hectic, over the top premises of the last few. Essentially, this will be a throwback to the original King of Cheese games, where you select one unit for the entire game (hence Ultimate Unit
), and duke it out against each other one at a time.
This edition, starting easy, will be the close combat edition. This means that all rounds and fights will be close combat only.
Thus, only things that happen in the assault phase (non-shooting psychic powers excepted) can be used to kill your opponents. No shooting, no overwatch. I think this should be quite interesting as almost every codex (sorry Guard) can field a pretty nasty combat unit, and there have been quite a few codices been released since KoC's games. With regards to Forgeworld, I will have to consider these options more carefully for balance, but the specifics of entries will be made more clear once I know the level of interest in the game.
Anyway, ignoring my prattling on this is another chance for you Heretics to fight it out for the title of Ultimate Unit Champion, in a much more gladitorial way than previous campaign or wave based games. I look forward to seeing you on the battlefield!
