I have 2x5 CSM with Plasma/Combi-Plasma in one Rhino and 10 Cultists in my other Rhino. Both Rhinos have double combi-bolters.

Interestingly the BAO list that has gone 5 wins 0 losses so far with 2 hemlocks has not paid for the spirit stones. I haven't had time to go through all of the other lists to see if there are any other Hemlocks or Autachs to see if they paid for their abilities.
I am aware of that. Due to the numerous people that have legitimate questions about spirit stones (and the force shield), I imagine the T.O. will be lenient, as it was not clarified in the BAO tournament packet, or in an official GW FaQ.

Still, my advice is to pay for the 'abilities' as if they were wargear so you're used to it when it gets clarified.

Cheers!

You think the striking difference between Fortune & Molten Body can be explained with just GW being incompetent as always with wording their rules?
Or you could attribute the difference to GW's (newfound) sensitivity to making things 'unkillable'.

As for, "incompetent as always"; what percentage of all rules written by GW would you classify as 'incompetent'? And, presuming you don't classify the vast majority of the rules as such, do you imagine there may be other explanations for why they write rules the way they do?

While an FaQ may clarify at some point, you are best to assume that the mistake was in putting it in "Abilities" rather than "Wargear" or "Equipment". The Iron Halo is not a piece of gear with a point cost, but Spirit Stones and the Forceshield do have point costs. I recommend you pay the points for the Spirit Stones and the Forceshield.

Cheers!

Mattler, great work on this. I'm confident that we can expect Dire Avenger point costs to come down when they get their codex. Take Space Marine Inceptors as an example: their cost came down 15 points compare to what they were in the index.

Cheers!

Reserves for matched play, if I have 11 units can I keep 6 in reserve? (5.5 rounded up)
No. The rule states, "at least half" with no mention of rounding (either up or down). Thus, in order to satisfy the condition, you have you have 6 units on the table to put 5 in reserve (as 5 on the table is not, "at least half").

Regarding (all) Indexes: Might be helpful to keep in mind that these are transitional documents. Drawing hard conclusions (or making harsh criticisms) based on them may not be the best use of your time.


True. But they arnt going to bring all thoae new codexes in in 3 months. They will be around  for a whike yet.
GW has indicated their timeline for releasing the codex for every army; it's short, given the number of armies.

Suspect that's a rule that TO's will swiftly jettison.
I suspect that's a rule that TO's will quickly appreciate, as will players. :)

Hey all,

When we all get our shiny books, I'll be eager to start talking rules!

I would also like to note that I had fun playing Maelstrom again this year and fully intend to play again next year. I'll talk about it more in the Tournaments section but I was so happy to finally play against Orks that I lost track of playing the game. I had so many questions which the Ork player was happy to answer (which was to his advantage but having fun and learning about his army was more important to me than finishing off his army in a timely manner). Very well run!

Glad you enjoyed it!

If you were there Saturday/Sunday, what you saw were the armies for the Team Tournament, which is the flagship 40K event at AdeptiCon. Each team is 4 players and each player brings 1000 points. So...you'll see a lot of big carts and 4000 point armies.
