If you were the TO of a tournament, what units would you ban and/or restrict? Would you limit restricted units to 0-1 per detachment or per army? Why?

I myself would ban EVERYTHING that's not in a basic codex or BRB (nothing from a "Supplement" and restrict everything to 0-1 per army that's not a Troop Choice (or dedicated transport). I would do this for many reasons. One is to be "fair" (quotes intentional - "You restricted heldrakes! Why not [insert random unit]!? They're OP too!")

But what would you ban/restrict?

It's hard to say really- because if you ban say drakes chaos will bitch that they have no good options
Ban everything and armies like guard perhaps won't have much to take
Tau I know would struggle with only one of everything- they have limited AT outside broadsides and hammerheads, limited anti-teq outside riptides

0-1 restrictions on Baleflamers, Ion Accelerators, and possibly Divination Psykers.
0-2 restrictions on Wraithknights and Vendetta Gunships.

Other small erratas would be;
- Grimoire of True Names only affects the Invulnerable save given by the Daemon special rule - it does not stack with psychic powers or other wargear.
- Wave Serpent Shield is one-use-only.
- Battle Brothers cannot join each others' units.
- Formations, Escalation, and Stronghold Assault are banned.
- Maximum of 3 Flyers in a single army.

I'd ban dice.

They've screwed me over millions of times more than any poxy, so-called "over powered" model ever has.
Laughing at me, what with their six faces and "randomly" generated values...

Oh, yes.
I'd ban dice...

Though I take your life, I promise you the stars...

Taking more than 2 of any unit from all books. Still allows redundancies but we actually get some variety in armies.


I have recently started a new Blog. I would really appreciate it if you would LOOK AT IT

I'd ban tournaments and run large campaign events instead with missions based on story things for the various armies, pitting different sides against each other.

As a chaos player, I wouldn't mind having my heldrakes restricted. ;)
And I used to play Tau too. They still have crisis suits with fusion blasters, don't they? :confused:

0-2 seems reasonable. And yes, I agree it would add more variety :D

Fusion blasters involve being close, and if you take fusion blasters in a 1 max army
Your only termie killer or even marine killer is basically riptides with ions or plasma rifles
