Basic Rules

• This tournament utilizes the normal 5th edition 40K rulebook and the Planetstrike expansion. The AdeptiCon INAT FAQ will be used (Updated 03.19.09). This FAQ can be found here: http://www.adepticon.org/wpfiles/inat/INATFAQv3.0.pdf

• Individual units that may have multiple rules versions will follow the rules presented in that army’s codex. Please take the time to review the relevant GW/Adepticon FAQ’s for clarifications.

• Special/Unique/Named Characters may be fielded, provided their individual rules allow them to be used in armies of 1750pts or less.

• All models must be WYSIWYG. Any model not represented properly will be removed from play. If this results in an illegal unit (below minimum squad size for example), then the entire unit will be removed

• All models MUST be fully painted to a 3-color minimum. Any model not painted to this standard will be removed from play. If this results in an illegal unit (below minimum squad size for example), then the entire unit will be removed

• Armies are limited to 1750pts. total. Please provide a clear, concise army list to your opposing player and the judge

• This tournament utilizes the Planetstrike force organization chart for all scenarios. The Planetstrike FOC is as follows (underlined units are COMPULSORY):

For attacking – 1 HQ (+2 HQ), 6 Elites, 6 Troops, 6 Fast Attack, 3 Heavy Support

For defending – 1 HQ (+2 HQ), 3 Elites, 2 Troops (+6 Troops), 3 Fast Attack, 6 Heavy Support

This will mean each player can have two separate 1750pt. army lists. If doing so, each list MUST be clearly marked as “Attacker” or “Defender”.

• Tournament judges’ rulings are final

Scoring

192 total points. 48 points per scenario divided into primary (20), secondary (15) and tertiary (10) objectives with three (3) +1 battle point modifiers.

Victory points will be used in the case of a tie.

Objectives

ANY non-vehicle unit (unless specifically stated otherwise in their relevant codex) may claim an objective, even if there is only a single model remaining, if it ends the game within 3”. Should an objective be claimed by both sides, it automatically counts as being claimed by the defender.

Chaos Lord WIP and Black Templar

I thought I had already posted these, but a quick look revealed otherwise. I have been slowly working on my Nurgle Lord, playing around with the corroded metal. I think I have found a way that I am happy with, although it may get a final wash to dull it down a little. I’m undecided as to what color to do his cloak. Maybe a deep, worn red? I even thought about possible a dirty, off-white, maybe a remnant of his former days as a Death Guard under the Emperor. Any suggestions?

and here is my first completed Black Templar, not too much to say except, err, wibble. 🙂

Well, thats about it for now. Stay tuned, and please, join up with Chamber Militant!

Cheers

New Forum created – Chamber Militant is online.

Yes indeed. I decided to have a go at hosting a forum, for all you gamers and hobbyists out there to come together and talk about anything hobby related. The page is only a couple of days old, and is still being moved and tweaked here and there, but please stop by, register (it only takes a minute) and join in!

Nurgle Lord WIP! update

OK, just a quickie before I go out for a game of 40K. I started on my Nurgle Lord the other night. I think i’m pretty happy with the armor color, but I want to experiment with some washes as well, check it out:

Hopefully I’ll get him finished this week. I’m pretty happy with how the helmet looks and i’m glad that I added the extra horns, as it makes him look a little more plaguebearer like.

Cheers!

Nurgle Chaos Terminator Lord – WIP

Indeed, another project I managed to squeeze in when I had a spare few moments. As I mentioned earlier today, I picked up the Chaos Terminator Lord, and I have to say, it is a beautiful and spectacularly decadent mini to put together. I wanted him to be bombastic and looking ready to deal out some serious pain. I was having a hard time deciding what weapons to give him, as I loved all the combinations. In the end I decided on giving him lightning claws, as I figured the prospect of getting up close and personal with this guy would be truly terrifying. I added the cape and the spikey racks to add to the general air of malice that exudes from every weeping pore. Why not put him on the over-the-top chaos rubble base too, to add some extra height? so I did! it also allowed me to position him so it looks as though he’s about to jump over and start leathering the poop out of some poor, unfortunate sap. I was thinking that if it was any good, maybe even entering it into Golden Demon next year. Anyhoo, check out the pictures and see what you think!

Song of the moment: ‘Utopian Blaster’ By Cathedral 🙂

Quick update – December 30th

Wow! what a busy holiday break! I think I need a vacation….

Added to the already swelling ranks. Newest additions to the mini collection are:

  • Box of Black Templar Sword Bretheren
  • Chaplain in Terminator Armor
  • Black Templar upgrade kit
  • Box of Sternguard Veterans
  • Forgeworld Death Guard conversion set
  • Forgeworld Apostate Preachers of Nurgle
  • Forgeworld upgrade kits for Black Templar Terminators
  • Forgeworld Black Templar Venerable Dreadnaught

So, plenty to keep me busy into the new year and beyond! I also picked up a Chaos Terminator Lord, the plastic boxed figure, and have already assembled it, and GS’d it too! He is now a grim and bloated Chaos Lord of Nurgle. I’ll post pictures up soon. I need to get on board with all my other projects!

Thats it for now, have a great New Year!!
