11:35 Matched Play Rules Changes (official updates)

  • Smite +1 Warp Charge to cast each time you cast. ( different than beta rules)
  • Targeting Characters: Can only target if closest model even if you cant see, and characters do not block targeting to other characters.

11:45 FAQ Changes

  • Battalions from 3 to 5 and Brigades from 9 to 12 command points
  • only one save allowed after an unsaved wound is applied. No more stacking FNP’s and things.
  • Key unit point changes. Guiiilman, flying hive tyrants, dark reapers all getting increases.

11:53 Event Guidelines

  • Rule of 3: You can only use the same datasheet up to 3 times in matched play.

11:57 Next Beta Rules (Proposed by GW not official)

  • Soup: No longer use Imperium, Chaos, Aeldari keywords to build your list. You can still include sisters of silence, assassins, units that may not have an HQ etc.. So “soup lists” look to now need to be made via separate detachments.
  • First Turn (Alpha Stike): Fully half your army has to be on the table (deploy on the table) by power level, or unit number. if a unit comes in the first turn it must do so in your deployment zone. (some things like cult ambush exempt)
  • FAQs coming soon, along with new Forge World updates.
