Rules Document: We are still finalising the rules pack, however here is the "Preparing Your Doubles Army Section" to help you plan:

  • Each player may select a Force worth up to 1,000 points. Points don’t carry over between players.

  • Warscroll Battalions must be fully contained in one player’s Force.

  • Each Force is selected individually using the restrictions laid down in the “Vanguard” bracket of the General’s Handbook.

  • Each player may select a General for their Force, and each may use their command ability in your team’s turn. Each command ability can only affect friendly models from that General’s Force, or, where applicable, enemy models.

  • The Rules of One are in effect across the team’s Army.

  • The Forces do not have to be from the same Grand Alliance.

  • Allegiances (and therefore Traits, Artefacts and Battleline units) are determined individually for each Force.

  • Any Pitched Battle Profile that specifies that it can only be taken once in an army can only be taken once in your team’s Army.

  • Battle and Command Traits are determined for each Force individually and can only affect enemy Warscrolls and friendly Warscrolls from your own Force.

  • Triumphs from the Pitched Battle are determined based on the difference between each team’s Armies points value.

  • Reinforcement Points are determined individually for each player’s Force and reinforcements must be summoned from the same Grand Alliance.

  • In all Pitched Battle battleplans, replace all instances of the word “player” with “team”.

Looking forward to it.

A lot of people are excited about the dwarfs and I like that they went all in on the design. 

So yes, you can probably expect a few players!

Well I hope the wedding goes well. It would be great to see you at the tournament. If not, then I think we are currently looking at August for our next singles Age of Sigmar tournament.

@Jamie Grinstead Just curious, what was the choice behind not having command abilities affecting your team mates units? Seems like it removes more tactical thought than it adds or am i missing something that is exploitable?

Good news - I'm definitely back from the Poland wedding.  

Bad news - I'm on another stag do (for a chap that's already married!!!)

A few of the EATBATS boys should be coming to the doubles and I'll be looking to attend the singles in August!  Good luck with the event and chuck some photos on twitter on the day so I can follow the fun!

So to me, it seemed to be a trade off... I believe you could either have that both players must use the same Grand Alliance or just restrict the command abilities. Thematically I feel it fits as well, something that works on, say, orruks wouldn't necessarily work on humans.

I am not saying that the ruleset that we have is in any way perfect for this one and I am expecting to may be have to make some house rules for a few things, such as around double Tzeentch armies and their destiny dice as an example.

You can't have a stag do if you are already married... Seems a bit backwards!

Awesome sounds good. I will be playing in this one however will throw up some pictures when I can!

P.S Sorry for the late reply to everyone, I was away at a demo event for Runewars (An upcoming FFG game).

Is this tournament on the 19th!? That's a Monday. Surely it's the 17th or 18th? 

It is indeed 17th. I had remembered to change the date everywhere except the title! Good spot!

For the battle traits does that mean 2 identical armies cannot benefit from a heroes ability like say me and my mate take the new kharadons we can't benefit from the same navigator?

That is correct, this is one rule we weren't sure about however because you can mix Grand Alliances between team mates, we weren't sure if this would potentially create something broken so having heroes only help their own Force rather than the whole Army seemed safest.

Right, sorry for being quiet recently! My brother has been ill which meant double the work for me!

Here is the 1st version of the rules pack, we may still make sure tweaks if we feel like there is something broken (Things like Tzeentch destiny dice):

Are all the slots taken yet? Me and my friend are interested!

 

Also how does magic work? Does our spells affect each other? If our spells don't affect each other does that allow us to say cast mystic shield once each for example

The tournament is now less than a week away and there are still spaces for anyone wanting to attend!

Everyone attending will receive a token that they can use as an objective marker, on top of all the prizes!
