Default KoC's Ultimate Unit game #3 (Troop edition)

Welcome to KoC's Ultimate Unit game #3.

Will be handing out a little more +rep this time too!

Rules are slightly changed (again) from the last game.
Be sure to read the details below!

You must think of a unit that is a Troop choice.
Yes, it MUST be a Troops choice.

You have 200 points to spend on the unit.
NO VEHICLES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

No reserves, deep strike, or outflank.

No terrain.

Send the details of the unit to me via PM, and you will be entered into the tournament.


Players will be randomly paired, and play in a knockout-style tournament until there is 1 person left.
The method of battle i will be using is as followed...

ROUND 1
- Units are placed exactly 12" apart.
- Unit 1 has a movement phase, followed by a shooting phase.
- Units are placed back exactly 12" apart.
- Unit 2 has a movement phase, followed by a shooting phase.
- Units are placed in base-to-base with unit 1 counting as charging.

ROUND 2
- Units are placed exactly 12" apart.
- Unit 2 has a movement phase, followed by a shooting phase.
- Units are placed back exactly 12" apart.
- Unit 1 has a movement phase, followed by a shooting phase.
- Units are placed in base-to-base with unit 2 counting as charging.


If a unit rapid-fires, then it will be unable to gain the benefits of charging that round.

Victory points will be calculated on a "per-model" basis, and added up from both rounds to calculate a winner.
If both units are basically tied from both rounds, then i will run the battle a second time.
All shooting and combat will be rolled by me with dice.

Blast weapons have a 50% chance to hit, and will count as hitting D6+2 models with a 25mm base or D6 models with a 40mm base.
Large Blast weapons have a 66% chance to hit, and will count as hitting D6+4 models with a 25mm base, or D6+2 models with a 40mm base.
Any Template weapons will count as hitting D6+1 models with a 25mm base or D6-1 models with a 40mm base, providing they moved at least 6".


The 2 players that are eliminated before the final round (equal 3rd place) will receive a medal each, along with +8 rep.
The player who is eliminated in the final round (2nd place) will receive a medal, along with +12 rep.
The player who is the last one standing (1st place) will receive a medal, +16 rep, and ultimate bragging rights!

Before i roll any dice, i will also give out +5rep for a "KoC favoured unit" award.
This will go to the person who submits a unit that i personally find either unique, fluffy, or just makes me rofl.

I will announce when i have got enough players in this thread, and will be posting results from every round.

Good luck everyone!

Also, random fact but it's 1:30 AM here. Lawl.

And what shoulder, & what art. Could twist the sinews of thy heart?
And when thy heart began to beat, What dread hand? & what dread feet?
What the hammer? what the chain? In what furnace was thy brain?
What the anvil? what dread grasp, Dare its deadly terrors clasp?
When the stars threw down their spears, And watered heaven with their tears,
Did he smile his work to see? Did he who made the Lamb make thee?

Message sent. Glad to be know i won't be seeing thos THSS termies anymore!

and a quick question- what if a unit is a potential troop? Deathwing termies spring to mind. I assume that the units have to be a 'natural' troop choice?

I thought about putting something in the first post regarding this, but didn't worry about it.

Taking certain special characters can make an Elite choice a Troop in a NORMAL game.... however you NEED to take the special character.
As you cant take the special character, then you wont be able to take the unit as a Troops choice.

So that means no Sanguinary Guard, no Deathwing Terminators, no Nobz, no Fenrisian Wolves, etc.

Wow, there are going to be some quite humerus matches in the first round!
Got enough entrants so far for the first 5 games, and 2 of the 5 games are between almost identical units!
At least they will be close!
