I've lost count of how many of these we've done now so I'll just make up a number and say it's Ambush XXVI

25th of May and the theme is little games.

40k - Combat Patrol
- 400 points.
- Must have 1 Troops choice.
- No more than 1 HQ.
- No more than 2 wounds per model.
- No special characters.
- No 2+ saves.
- No vehicles with a front+side+rear armour value more than 33 i.e Chimera is 12+10+10=32
- No ordance.

Fantasy - Border Patrol
- 500 points.
- Must have 1 single hero. May not be a BSB.
- Army must consist of at least 2 units but no more than 4.
- Must have at least 1 core choice.
- May take 1 choice of special or rare but not both.
- Must include at least 1 infantry unit of at least 10 models.
- No unit may contain more than 25 models.
- No unit may carry a magical standard.
- No single model may cost more than 125 points.
- An army may have no more than 1 chariot or war machine. This also applies to armies that allow more than 1 item per pick.

Army specific details:
- Bretonnians do not have their BSB.
- Tomb Kings must have a Liche Priest as the hero. He will also be the general.
- Tomb Kings may have more than 1 chariot.
- A Vampire thrall may lead a Vampire Counts army (not knowing much about the new army book this may now be obselete).


Lord of the Rings - 250 points

Cost is $10, there'll be prizes as always and your entry fee will get you a free finger food lunch which I'll put on for everyone.

Starts at 9.00. We'll give maybe 15 mins for rego and then get the games underway.

Gold is hellishly busy with a new contract he's got so not sure if we'll see this updated on the website.

In the mean time post here, PM me or come see me at CWC or Cavs if you want more info or want to register.

Cheers all

Combat Patrol is 400 points isn't it? Just checking as I remember the 500 point Combat Patrol games from past Conquests...

Dunno, seeing as it's combat patrol battle points are going to be minimum as in 25% or something ridiculous. Combat patrol is effected very heavily by a bad roll because it's such a small points level. Bring what ever cheese you want as it'll be your table manner that wins you the tourny on the day rather than your army.

It is a tournament entirely about having fun from what i've heard. Thus, (with the usual caveat of if I can make it) I intend on playing with my $16 army. 25 unmodified genestealers for the win! I even have 8 genestealers spare!

Beaten to it! I was thinking of borrowing 20 stealers with scuttle and flesh hooks. Oh well I'm glad someone is playing stealers, should be funny.

John has supplied the rules for Border Patrol in Fantasy so I've updated them. Could someone please also PM me the Combat patrol details as I don't have the big book.

:roll:
Reasons that suggesting that makes you a noob.
1)Chaos spawn are not troops, combat patrol requires at least 1 troop choice.
2)Chaos spawn have 3 wounds, no 3 wound models are allowed in combat patrol.
3)You are Cam, therefore anything you say or do only makes you more of a noob.
