    Question about units composing a battalion

    The battalions have set requirements. Some will indicate ranges instead of specific numbers, but you must satisfy all requirements; you cannot just pick and choose.

    Removal of compendiums

    “Mandatory” and “mandatory for Matched Play” are very different concepts. GW wants to support certain armies only for Open and Narrative Play, so we have the Legends program. Your play group may play Matched Play exclusively, but as you’ve seen in other threads, that is not the case everywhere.
  3. Nah, you’re trying too hard. Tetra-head-ron.

    Charge from 3 inch away

    By definition, they must be just outside 3” if you put them there in the movement phase. Therefore, they are necessarily out of range for piling in.

    Sell Me Your Faction

    Dinosaurs. Riding. Dinosaurs. ... Plus, they're led by an angry-looking frog. What's not to love? Play Seraphon!

    Herald of Tzeentch Fortune and Fate

    Yes. The ability only checks his casting roll; it’s not dependent on a successful cast.

    Seraphon Celestial Conjuration Points

    Don’t use third-party sources. The text in the General’s Handbook 2018 makes it reasonably clear that you can skip out on as many spells as you like each turn for 3 conjuration points apiece.

    Was flying changed/updated?

    Other models in the same unit do not block line of sight. An example would be a unit of 10 Judicators in two ranks of 5 -- the back rank can "see through" the front rank regardless of their positioning. Different units (regardless of which army they are in) can potentially block line of sight. In this case, your Ironclad could potentially block your Gunhauler's sightlines -- basically, if the enemy can't see the Gunhauler, it can't see the enemy either.

    Restrictions for a small Tournament

    I would strongly encourage this approach. Your top-placing armies (1,2,3 overall; best in grand alliance; etc.) could get a certificate or something to commemorate their performances, but if there is any prize support I think that making it a random draw will get more people to come out to play, even if they have little to no chance to be on the podium at the end of the event.
  10. The tournaments a friend of mine runs locally use random prize support to completely separate winning from rewards. That is intended to encourage a more casual approach to the tournaments and has worked well so far.

    The New FAQ (23/07/2018)

    And yet it only works if those models are diametrically opposite one another. So you need a template that ensures that’s how you place them - because otherwise you can pile in closer to both models. End of the day, if you (as my opponent) are putting this much effort into preventing one of my models from participating in the game, I’m not enjoying myself and I’m not sure you are either.

    About Modifiers and rerolls

    A "failed save roll" -- before modifiers -- is one that does not satisfy the printed Save characteristic on the warscroll. In the case of a Sequitor, you get to reroll 1s, 2s, and 3s, which fail based on the characteristic. As an example, I attack with a weapon with -1 Rend. I score 5 successful wound rolls. You roll the following saves: 1, 2, 4, 5, 5. You check against your characteristic (4+) and reroll the 1 and 2, getting a 3 and a 6. Your existing dice now read: 3, 4, 5, 5, 6. We now apply my Rend on the save rolls: 2, 3, 4, 4, 5. Two attacks have succeeded. These rules, as applied, make Rend supersede the rerolling (since rerolls always happen before modifiers, Rend can cause otherwise successful saves to fail).
  13. I've thought about this myself as well. The counterpoint that I came up with in my internal struggle was that the buildings won't have survived the raging battle, so it makes more sense for ruins to exist on a battlefield than pristine functional buildings.

    Sylvaneth Summoning and Navigate the Realmroots

    To me, “instead of moving normally” implies that the unit would have to be able to move. So as I see it, you cannot do this the turn you’ve summoned them. Thats just my opinion and interpretation and could be 100% wrong though.
