Idea...thoughts?

Postby Unorthodoxy » Fri Mar 10, 2017 12:36 pm

I had an idea that was spawned by a discussion I was having online about Warhammer 40K in general.

How would everyone feel about a 1000 point tournament and the rules would be that no single unit can be more than 195 points.

This is for a whole lot of reasons and the points limit was very intentionally chosen to stop some of the newest and most excessive units (like Celestine) from creating too much of a mismatch, but it would essentially create a very interesting scenario wherein you would see armies played in a far more "conventional" manner.

I really like the idea but wanted to ask for peoples thoughts on how interested you'd be to try it.

I was really happy until I saw you said no more then 195 a unit. Would this include a Necron Royal Court? Royal Courts can up to 7 HQs (I usually do 5), which of course goes past that cap alone before I dip points in decking them out. The other problem would be it would exclude pretty much all of Deathwing from the Dark Angels, (Since you either focus on the bikes or Deathwing Terminators/Knights which are past that cap at base). But I guess the other side of that is your wanting to avoid the heavy duty stuff.

As for 1,000 points in general I like the idea. Its small enough that a single game won't take hours.

Do you mean single unit or single model?

Yeah thats sort fo the thrust of it, right there. Just a good old conventional war with ridiculously powerful super aliens and super humans. You know, like normal life.
