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.

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!

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.

If you want a glimpse at how they're run, just browse the General 40k section for any of mine, Samules', mynameisgrax's, or the original King of Cheese's games. Should clear up any confusion as to how the game will work. I'll provide more specific instructions once I close entries to the game.

Potential codexes used:

Tau, Orks, maybe guard or grey knights depending on point levels and if a blob can count as a unit

I'm In! I'll probably be sticking to Codex: Grey Knights, but I'm not certain on that yet; I may give Tau or Necrons (or something) a try

By the way Spanner, if you open this for submissions during the weekend, at least keep submissions open until tuesday, I won't have internet until then. Or announce the roolz and I'll send mine before I leave.

Entries will probably stay open until the end of next week, just for maximum attention. Though if we start drying up with entrants I'll consider closing earlier. But don't worry, you'll have plenty of time to submit your entries after I ask for them - and I can always extend deadlines if people let me know in advance.
