Ultimate Unit Game: Retro Edition #3 - All Rounder
 
Well I was going to leave posting this until Saturday, but why wait? Welcome to the third installment of the Retro Edition Ultimate Unit Game! In this game you will select one unit from a codex of your choice to compete against other Heretics in both ranged and close combat to determine the Ultimate Unit.

As of now, I only require your declaration of interest, so just post below if you wish to participate. Anybody new to the Game may want to check out the previous games, via the links posted in the Social Group.

And beware the fillers!

Count me in Muthafuckers!!!

What's the rules for this occasion/points allowances etc?

spanner94ezekiel 06-05-13 08:19 PM

I haven't fully decided on the details yet, but it'll most likely be around the 200-250 point marker. No fliers/FMCs as per usual, and I am debating whether to restrict the use of walkers - probably won't but it needs considering. And then there may be a couple of other specific unit restrictions. Note that Special Characters will be banned, but all non-Apocalypse Forge World units are permitted with their latest rules (other limitations still applying of course).

CattleBruiser 06-05-13 08:31 PM

The Meddler 06-05-13 08:32 PM

warsmith7752 06-05-13 10:44 PM

Could be an interesting one, with access to nearly every unit it might come down to a bit of a lucky dip but then again the whole game is based on dice. So im in.

Xlioe 06-05-13 10:59 PM

Yeah I'll give it a whirl, now what to pick...

Routine 06-06-13 12:06 AM

spanner94ezekiel 06-11-13 09:11 PM

Chaosftw 06-14-13 04:11 PM

Chaosftw

spanner94ezekiel 06-14-13 04:26 PM

Welcome aboard! Always room for more. :)

Romero's Own 06-14-13 04:27 PM

I could be immature and take that sentence out of context. But I'm not going to.

Looking forward for this starting.

Spanner clearly means there is more room in his b-hole. It's a gaping maw, and it's hunger is never satiated

spanner94ezekiel 06-15-13 10:25 AM

Tell me about it - the amount of stuff I've lost up there is incredible. I mean, I just sit down on like a chair or something, and - *squelch* - it's gone.

:russianroulette:

Romero's Own 06-15-13 10:40 AM

It's a curse. I feel your pain spanner

MetalHandkerchief 06-17-13 06:30 PM

Crickets. Eating Molasses!

I know Spanner is super busy but I had to, just absolutely had to :grin:

For those still yet to sign up, the latest Ultimate Unit Game is ready to go! Check out the Competitions sub-forum to find out more. Warning: I will be closing entries this Tuesday!
:wink:

spanner94ezekiel 06-18-13 06:36 PM

OK, Tuesday's here! That means the deadline for participation in this Game is now CLOSED.


And here are the requirements for your entries:

- 225 pts
- Must be a unit suitable for 40k (i.e. Imperial Armour is acceptable with the latest rules, but no Apocalpyse).
- No named characters.
- No "unlockable" units such as Command Squads, Royal Court etc.
- Must be a total of 1 Kill Point and no more.
- No Flying Monstrous Creatures or Fliers permitted.


Here's how the rounds will work:
- You will be drawn against a random entrant.
- Both sides will take a simultaneous shooting phase.
- Both sides will then simultaneously assault (both counting as charging unless the weapons fired prevent a charge e.g. Rapid Fire or Heavy Weapons - in this case the squad receives no charge bonuses).

Miscellaneous:
- Challenges are OUT.
- Overwatch is OUT.
- Morale is IN.
- Wound allocation will be random, though Look Out Sir! saves may still be made.
- You may not use any abilities or benefit from any advantages from the Movement Phase (seeing as there isn't one).
- Squads will be considered to be within minimum range. This means they are always within melta range or grenade range etc, but will count as minimum distance for things such as Conversion Beamers. Note that weapons with a minimum range requirement will be counted as in range.
- Templates deal D3+1 hits
- Small Blasts deal: 1 - No hits, 2-3 - 2 hits, 4-5 - 3 hits, 6 - 5 hits.
- Large Blasts deal: 1 - No hits, 2 - 1 hits, 3 - 3 hits, 4 - 5 hits, 5 - 8 hits, 6 - 10 hits.
- Against vehicles, templates deal 1 automatic hit, while both blasts will deal 1 automatic hit on a roll of 2-5, while a roll of 1 still misses.
- Note that these weapons can never deal more hits than there are models remaining in the target unit.
- Weapons or abilities that inflict hits along a line will automatically hit a random 20% of the target unit.


If people have any other questions, feel free to ask either here, in a PM, or in the social group.

Entries are due by this time next week (Tuesday 25th June) - if you cannot make this deadline please inform me beforehand so I can make arrangements.

A word on filler units - I have not yet had the time to work these out, but I will post them up once everyone else has their entries in too. Seeing as we have 24/32 slots filled (whoop whoop, we met the target), there will be eight fillers once more. Be aware - they want your blood!

Cheers, Spanner.
