40k Arena of Death

Post  KharnForBloodGod on Wed Feb 09 2011, 11:46

It's alive....... It's Alive I tell you!

40k has jumped to major life since the kill team started. There is now a campaign possibly in the non to distant future, gorka thingy, and possibly more kill team events at some stage! But when calaxia falls on wednesday( and it will the nids and necrons will make sure of that) there will be a gap between it and the next big event( except for the gorka thingy players ) so I would like to throw this out there as an alternative time filler

Arena of death

For you guys that don't know it's a HQ one one or team event that pits your HQ champion against your friends and rivals to find out who is the god of 40k non special charaters war. This will be a small table event ( I think it is 36" x 36" setup with reactive screnery ) you will have a limit on the number of points for your hQ and resrictions on equipment. I will get the rules up if there is enough interest. This will be very fluff drive with full league scoring system or maybe knockout don't quite know yet!

So got an HQ painted and ready to prove it's metal against the maddest and badist the 40k universe has to offer or just need to paint and convert that one model you just can't face because u will never need or want to this will give you drive for the task.

Post bellow if this floats your universe domination boat and I will get cracking on the rules and requirements

the rules i will be running for this are the bolter and chainsword version you can download it from http://www.bolterandchainsword.com/index.php?automodule=downloads&showfile=305

i will be making a few changes to this version but the it will give you an idea how it all runs and works and there is a demo of this system at a L.A con here on youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sSnmmhHuG7ghttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sSnmmhHuG7g

i will be outlawing special named charaters and puting the points limit up to 150 possibly!!

so let me know guys if you have any imput or issues you think need addressed.

hive tyrant is 170 points without any upgrades.
really only option is a tyranid prime (base 80 points) with loads of upgrades still wouldnt be 150 points.

So if we were to keep the points limit the same 135 would that be better

Count me in the emperors finest will slay any in his way to victory

I remember reading this on the space wolf sub forums was rather funny
Like I said last night 130 points is kind of low for the newer codexs, I think a space wolf lord after upgrades comes close to 200pts there is always the wolf guard battle leader I guess. Also chaos players are kind of gimped with there rather naff hq stuff lol

I so want someone to take an elder farseer would be so funny

If you wanted it to be a level playing field you could say stick to marines and set the death matches during the feast of blades

maybe allow 150 points.

I'd this idea in the past allowing 150 points, but no bike upgrades, but jump packs were allowed, otherwise everyone would go biker and shoot at 24 inches and kite the non marine players. jump packs doesn't give relentless which makes it much less effective.

For the arenas i'd worked on basis of a 2x2 foot board with barriers a few raised areas like ramps etc. to add even more you could number the walls 1-6 (Maybe a few of each) and when the number is rolled they lower (remove the walls) and if rolled again they raise.
