Default Ultimate Unit Game: Retro Edition #2 - DAKKA

Hello and welcome to the next Ultimate Unit Game! This Game will be focussed on (as the title suggests), shooting. After the successes of the previous game, I thought we could aim to get the series even more popular - I wanna hit that 32 competitor mark, dammit!

So, shooting only. This means any Movement Phase abilities or psychic powers are out of the question, and there's no involvement for anything done in the Assault Phase. Again, I think most codices have a good standing in this game, perhaps with the exception of Tyranids who unfortunately lack the flexibility of firepower to deal with the possible array of units out there. Shooting will be resolved simultaneously, there will be no cover, and all weapons will be considered to be within their minimum range (sorry to those of you who are partial to a Conversion Beamer). There will be set "to-hit" values for blast and template weapons, and Look Out Sir! rolls will be taken as usual. That's about all I can think of for now, but I'll post a more formal version of the rules once I close the Game to entries.

All I require from you to participate is your signature in blood, in this here thread (ketchup does not count). You won't be submitting your entry just yet, but it'd be nice to see what codices are being considered. Remember you only get one unit for the entire game, so make sure it can deal with whatever it comes up against. Also note that 40k-approved Forge World units, and all vehicles (excluding fliers and FMCs) are permitted. No Apocalypse though.

Count me in.

However I do have a question. With units such as Space Marine Sternguard and Chaos Space Marine Obliterators is the ammo/weapon decided by the player or by you?

The Player. Any specific tactics/requirements you wish me to adhere to then please do let me know. Also know that wound allocation will be done randomly, as all models will be considered to be the same distance from each other. No hiding behind your grunts, you cowardly officers!

Do you have the new Tau codex, Spanner?

If so, sign me up.

Is there an auto sign-up button?

But please sign me up!

“Insane? You dare to claim that we are insane? I find this very amusing. You see, there is no such thing as sanity. Why? Because the nature of sanity depends on the context the term is used. A man living in squalor may call the rich man insane for wasting food, while the rich man in return may call the poor insane for living off his waste. You slaughter thousands and squander the resources of planets on foolish incursions to please a corpse and his corrupted followers. And you have the nerve to call me insane? Oh poor misguided individual, pray to whatever deity you serve and hope he is merciful, for those who find themselves trapped in the spiders web have little else they can do”

Im in. So we basically pick one unit from our codex, load it up with the appropriate options, and go with it? And is there a point limit?

Yup that's pretty much it. There may be further restrictions/requirements, but that's essentially it. More details will be posted once the game is full.
