Default Ultimate Unit Game: Retro Edition #1 - CHARGE!

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!

I take that as a yes then!
I want to see if we can beat 32 competitors - bit of a long shot I know.

If I knew the exact process and limits, I would happily give this a bash if no one would mind :D

But of course! If you want to find out a little more about Ultimate Unit, here's a list of threads for the previous games. All you need to do once the game starts is submit an entry based on the requirements I post in the thread, and then keep an eye on the thread and your PMs to see how your unit progresses. Also, if you join the Ultimate Unit Gamers group, then that'll make it easier for you to keep up to date with things.

Welcome aboard!

Sure.

"Atrocity is recognized as such by victim and predator alike, by all who learn about it at whatever remove. Atrocity has no excuses, no mitigating argument. Atrocity never balances or rectifies the past. Atrocity merely arms the future for more atrocity. It is self-perpetuating upon itself a barbarous form of incest. Whoever commits atrocity also commits those future atrocities thus bred."

"All governments suffer a recurring problem: Power attracts pathological personalities. It is not that power corrupts but that it is magnetic to the corruptible. Such people have a tendency to become drunk on violence, a condition to which they are quickly addicted."

--Frank Herbert

saw the marvel one and looked pretty cool, i'll give it a crack.

When evil seeks to overcome good
And firepower ovecomes the spoken word
Then death shall rain from the sky on wings of blood
And retribution will be swift
